Starbucks Rewards VISA offer in Starbucks app

Earn 4500 Bonus Stars after you spend $500.

Is this a guaranteed pre approval?

No. I app’d for it after seeing it for a couple days and getting a “special invite” email. Denied. I called the recon line and was told I opened too many cards in the past 2 years.

OP, as mentioned further upthread, it is not a pre-approved offer. Simply a marketing solicitation or invite via the Starbucks app.

The CC itself falls under the 5/24 restriction.

IMO this deal is not good. I used the rewards app and have gotten lots of reward stars through promotion and normal use. I think you need $4 dollars for each star on the credit card. The silver lining is you can use the card anywhere to spend $500.

For now at least, consider the Square Cash debit card.   This gives $1 off purchases at coffee shops, can be used evey 30 minutes.  As DoctorOfCredit notes, better rewards than the starbucks card

Re: Starbucks Rewards VISA offer in Starbucks app

I've received a 6500 bonus star offer several times now with the $500 spend. It's not a bad offer as 6500 stars equals to 52 free drinks/items. That itself isn't bad but the card has an annual fee - $49 per year. if you take the 52 drinks and times that by $5, that's $260. It's not a bad card but with an AF, I don't think it's worth it. If it had no AF, then it definitely would be worth it but compared to another card, say BoA Cash Rewards (no AF, $200 on 500 spend), it works out to be a better value. Hence why not many people are getting it (unless you love Starbucks and drink it daily).
Just my 2 cents.

That's what I figured. Unless you're at Starbucks 2-3x a day, 7 days a week I don't see how this card makes any sense.
