Guru’s Wrap-Up

I am not a big fan of Starbucks in general, and clearly this is not a card for everyone. But if you love Starbucks, then this could be an option if you are under 5 cards in the last 24 months. The signup bonus is not the highest we have seen, but the annual fee is waived. So this is one of the best offer. However, Chase has plenty of other cards to choose from.

  1. Thanks! I searched and couldn’t find an offer with the fee waived – do you have the link for the 6500 offer? For us, that might be well worthwhile!

      The current offer is 6,500 points but the $49 annual fee is not waived.
