The prior Gold Card was actually a black card and it cost $25 to join. After joining, you were given the ability to get 10% off all purchases.
Here is what's new:
The updated program is now called My Starbucks Rewards. The $25 fee has been dropped, but has been replaced with a point system. So now anyone who drinks coffee enough can now take advantage of it! You only will be able to get a personalized Gold Card after receiving 30 points. You won't get 10% all your purchases, but you do get a slew of other great benefits.
- A free drink on your birthday
- Free Soy
- Free flavored syrups
- Free refills on brewed coffee/tea
- 2 hours of free Wi-Fi per day.
- Other coupons and offers in the mail
