The Chase Starbucks card has an increased bonus of 4,500 points, up from 2,500 that was offered when the card was launched. A terrible card to get, even for Starbucks lovers, but here it goes anyway.
Offer & Requirements
Earn 4,500 Stars after you spend $500 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Bonus can be redeemed for 36 free drinks or rewards.
The card has a $49 annual fee that is not waived.

- Earn 1 Star for every $4 you spend outside of Starbucks® stores.
- As a Starbucks Rewards™ Gold Member, every 125 Stars earns you a food or drink Reward.
This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of this credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months.
The card also falls under the Chase 5/24 rule.
A terrible product. First it falls under the Chase 5/24 rule, so not everyone qualifies. And if you are under 5 cards in the last 24 months, then it would be foolish to use a new card application for the Chase Starbucks Visa. The signup bonus, while almost double the normal offer, is still maybe worth just $100. You need to pay the annual fee of $49, which cuts that bonus in half.
I really don’t see a reason for anyone to get this card. You could go for other credit card bonuses and just pay for your coffee.
