Attention, frequent Starbucks customers! Starbucks will be making a few tweaks to its “My Starbucks Rewards” program beginning Oct. 16, 2012. See the updates, below.

Free Drink (or Food)
Now you can use your “free drink” on food too.

Lucky Dozen
Earn a free drink (or food) every 12 Stars instead of 15.

Keep your Gold benefits
This hasn’t changed: earn 30 Stars every year as a Gold level member and you’re Gold for another year.

No More Postcards (#1 member-requested change)
Your free drink (or food) will load right onto your Starbucks Card account. You’ll receive an email alert when you’ve earned your reward. Just bring your registered Starbucks Card or the Starbucks Card mobile app to a participating store and tell your barista.


Soy & Syrup
Starbucks will no longer offer syrups and soymilk  on the house.

Tall Drink with Whole Bean Purchase
Starbucks will no longer offer a free tall drink when you buy a pound of coffee.
