If you haven’t joined yet, you really need to, and no, you don’t have to be a regular customer. I like a brewed coffee with caramel syrup once a week. I rarely pay for it, or full price.
Today I went into my local store at the corner of Gulf Blvd, and US 19. The Manager, who I have known for may years greeted me, with a lovely smile, and using my name. She remembered that I teach boxing, and asked about it. (Don’t you feel welcome}.
I asked to put money on my app (or card). By putting $20 on it, I got 25 stars. This is enough for half a Venti (large) coffee. I then used stars that I already had to order the Venti decaf coffee with caramel. This took 50 stars for the coffee, and 25 for the syrup. I also asked if I could have a free refill at the same time, as there is still no seating, so you can’t drink one, and take one home. She was happy to do this.
Starbucks Summer Game is running now, and you can play twice a day without even buying anything. I have already won either a Cold Brew or Iced Coffee, any size to be used by November 5th. I have also won 2 lots of 10 stars.
So you see in the past week I have gathered a free drink, 45 stars, and got my 2 large coffees today, that will last me all week. I put them in the fridge, and add milk to them, and either have them hot or cold.
They have B.O.G.O.F. offers for rewards customers, also double stars days, and a free drink on your birthday. I bet you are interested now.
With Dunkin Donuts closing 800 stores, maybe it’s time to change to Starbucks.
