Starbucks Rewards Changes As of October 16 No More Postcards For Free Drinks Now Automated
First off, if you're not familiar with Starbucks Rewards it's basically a loyalty points reward card (ie gift card) that you load up and pay with when ordering anything at Starbucks and you earn points (stars in this case). You can then redeem for FREE drinks. After you hit Gold level you get a FREE drink for every 15 stars, if you drink Starbucks often (I am guilty) you get these often!
Changes coming October 16:
• No more postcards in the mail for FREE drinks, it will now be loaded automatically on your card (you will get an email confirming this).
• Rewards can now be used on food as well (previously only on drinks)
• Gold level members can earn Free drinks or food for every 12 stars (previously 15)
• No more Free Syrup or Soy Milk features <- not happy about that one
• No more Free Tall Drink with Whole Bran purchase
• Free Birthday drinks (and now food) and free refills on brewed coffee are still available
