Last month, I finally hit 30 stars and I was elevated from Green to Gold. What does that mean?
I get the usual benefits all registered cardholders have plus two new ones. I get a coupon for a free drink with every 15 lattes purchased. At my rate of consumption that will be five free drinks a year including the free birthday perk.
The best part is the gold card with my name and the year I first registered on Starbucks.com. I’m ditching my current card as soon as I spend all the credit on it. (I had loaded $25 on the card the DAY before I got the Gold one.)
Starbucks wins because I want to earn free drinks AND whip out my special card. Hopefully, I’ll resist because I’m cheap on a budget. Nevertheless, they’ve won my loyalty for the weekly trip.
Does your favorite coffee shop have a rewards program? What’s your favorite perk?
