How many coffee cups should I buy at Starbucks to justify the $49 annual fee?

In order to cover up rather high annual fee of the Starbucks credit card you will need to spend at least $930 dollars per month on the card. The main drawback of the card that will stop you from earning more is that outside of the Starbucks coffeehouses you will earn scanty 1 Star for every $4. If you get credit card in order to earn rewards, the Starbucks credit card is not the best choice even if you buy Starbucks coffee every day. We would recommend you getting the Discover it® Cash Back credit card. The card has no annual fee and its rewards can bring you more value. You will get up to 5% cash back in rotating categories every quarter (up to the quarterly maximum and do not forget to sign up) and 1% everywhere else.
