The New Starbucks Rewards Program Now Has A Launch Date
How excited are you?
It was last May when we reported that Starbucks is discontinuing their old rewards program and updating it with a new and improved program, and there's been numerous updates since then. If you're wondering when the new program will be launched, Starbucks revealed that it will begin on July 17!
According to their official website, the new rewards program will let registered cardholders to "collect Stars on almost everything you buy," plus get free drinks, a birthday treat, and bonus stars, among many other things. Under the current program, you can only get Stars when you purchase the beverages.
What happens to your remaining balance? Starbucks says that your cards with balance won't lose its load after July 15. If your balance is above P100, you can transfer it to a complimentary new Starbucks card; but if it's below P100, you can get a cash refund, adding "You may, however, use your cash refund and top up to P300 to activate a new card under the new program."
It's only the Stars (points) that need to be consumed on or before the recently-extended deadline of July 15. Starbucks has decided that you only need a total of eight Stars to get a grande-sized beverage, instead of the usual 12!
