Starbucks has a hunch that you like your free drinks as much as you like your lattés, which is why they’ve just made their My Starbucks Rewards program even better… that is, if you like free stuff. “Go on,” you say? Well, the sweet coffee-peddling super-giant has changed the rules so that you can now collect more points with each purchase and earn your free caffeine even faster, which is definitely a welcomed bonus.
Those in the know know that the Starbucks Rewards program currently grants members a precious little star with each purchase, regardless of how many Iced Caffè Mochas, Egg & Cheddar Breakfast Sandwiches or Gluten Free Marshmallow Dream Bars you grab for yourself. One trip to the counter = one star.
Starting in April, you can toss that system out the drive-through window because now the program will grant little stars based on how much you spend. Two stars will now be granted for every dollar spent. If you’re looking for a little more latté-based logistics, this means Green level card-holders will need to earn 300 stars to get to Gold level and the mighty Gold members will need 125 stars to be blessed with their free drink. So that would take, like, a day? Surely a week, at most.
But if you’re looking to double down on your double shot mocha, then you’ll be even more thrilled to find out about the program’s new Double Star Days, which will randomly happen once a month and will offer just what it says.
Our caffeine-loving bods are already shaking with excitement! Or maybe we just need another cuppa joe ;)
