Great thanks! I got the gold membership for making 1 purchase in April. Do I have until Apr 2017 to collect enough stars to maintain gold status or does it go by calendar year (Jan 01 - Dec 31?)
I'm not sure how it worked with the getting gold for one purchase promo, but mine has never been by calendar year. You can see in the app (and probably online somewhere) when your gold expires.

In history, mine says 'earn 0 stars by Oct. 31, 2017' to keep gold. Which means my gold is good until Oct. 31, 2018 (due to the promo, when you got gold with one purchase, those that already had gold got an extra year of gold for one purchase).

Barista redeemed a star reward instead of my free beverage code. Quick email to customer service got my stars back.

I had never realized that I had Gold status until I checked the app today and saw that I was Gold. Usually I only use the card on my apple wallet to pay and that's about it. I don't think I've ever had any offers or coupons sent to me. How does this work ?

As some forum members mention they buy something (banana $1.05 being the cheapest), then SB send them a code/coupon. But that promo already expired so wait for the next one.

Anyone else have to email sbux all the time for missing stars from bonus offers? Have emailed so many times now they ask me to call in...why can't their system just track it better?

Only a couple of times in the last few years. It's been pretty good for me. With the updated app I track and get my stars immediately.

Even the updated app fails at tracking my promos properly.

I got an offer for 30 bonus stars for any purchase January 21 or 22 before 10 a.m.

I wonder if it counts if I made a purchase around 12:30 a.m EST on the 21st before the store by me closes or if it has to be later in the morning.

It's been great for me, never miss anything other than my own fault until yesterday morning. I received the "Grab you drink and then another" promo, should receive next free drink within 24 hours but nothing show up yet. Just sent them an email...

I think I got the morning because I never buy anything in the morning.

You might be on to something since I only buy in the morning. Damn those evil corporate marketers!!!

Anybody have a 15% birthday promo code that they're not using for store.starbucks.ca?

I would like to buy a new coffee grinder and 15% off will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
