According to CNN Money
Starbucks is changing its rewards program, and people are not happy about it.
The company announced Monday that starting in April, customers will no longer receive one point or star per visit –
Instead patrons will receive two stars for each dollar spent –
Starbucks is also changing how gold status and perks are calculated –
Gold members get a free food or beverage product after 12 stars
But when the new points system launches- customers will have to earn 300 stars — or spend close to $150 — to reach gold status WOW
After that they will need 125 stars (the equivalent to spending about $63) in exchange for a free item.
