UPDATE: 2/11/10 – Starbucks and Chase Bank have ended the Duetto Card. This decision was most likely due to the bad economy and less people indulging interested in earning points towards a vanilla latte. See more credit cards to earn points.
This card is for those of us that enjoy the aroma of Starbucks Coffee and the great tastes of Starbucks frappuccino this card from Chase plays on the Starbucks craze (or shall I say addiction). You did hear me right that this card serves as a reloadable Starbucks Card AND a Visa credit card. Consumers can earn Starbucks “Duetto™ Dollars” with every Visa purchase meaning you get $10 Duetto™ Dollars in their Starbucks Card Account with their first Visa purchase, Qualify for additional Starbucks rewards and benefits when using their Starbucks Card Account, Enjoy a 0% intro APR* for up to 6 billing cycles, no annual fee and a wide range of Visa benefits. One of the great benefits of using this card are the benefits beyond Duetto™ Dollars where you can get a free pound of coffee, a sneak preview of Starbucks latest new product just by using your Starbucks Card Account and the more you use it, the more opportunities you have for these type of rewards. Just think how left out your friends will be once you pull out your Starbucks Card. The 1% full cash back you earn from your Starbucks Visa Card purchases go directly into your Starbucks Card Account for you to spend. There is no waiting for certificates and no huge point totals to accumulate. Since coffee has went up over 13% after Hurricane Katrina hitting the Gulf Coast it might be a better time than ever to have a Starbucks Card to get some of the increase back in your pocket.
Starbucks recently introduced a Gold card for people who really like coffee. The gold card gets you 10% off most purchases in Starbucks stores, a free drink when you sign up in store, and you do not have to use any type of credit card for this you can pay as you like. Exclusive member benefits for registered members like a free drink on your birthday and special offers and discounts. The fee is $25 to join and coffee lovers can get the savings all year long.
