As I reported back in June, Starbucks Rewards underwent some program changes — I think for the better. Not only can you earn free coffee by using their giftcards, you can also when you buy ground coffee at the store. Look for the specially marked bags that have a gold sticker on them. On the back, is a code to enter at Starbucks.com/entercode (you must have an account) which will help you achieve Gold status. Gold status gets you free refills, discounts, and more. I finally earned stars to cash in, so naturally I am excited.
Here’s a video below which provides an excellent overview of the program:
But, there’s more. Don’t just throw away your empty Starbucks bag, bring it in to a store and you will get a free cup of coffee also.
With all of this awesome free-ness, it will definitely help bring down the cost of your coffee habit.
