News: Starbucks Loyalty Program Changes

Beginning October 15, 2013 Starbucks will add a few new benefits to their "My Starbucks Reward" loyalty program.

Basically, rewards can now also be redeemed for bottled beverages and at recently-acquired Teavana tea shops for drinks and loose leaf-teas. 
Moreover, in addition to receiving a free voucher/coupon for a free drink on their birthday, My Starbucks Rewards members will also receive a 15% off coupon good at
My Starbucks Rewards are redeemable at participating Starbucks and Teavana stores in the U.S. and Canada.

While the change does add more choice, bottled Frappucinos tend to be cheaper than the other options you can go for... Unless you go for pricier Evolution Fresh drinks.


  1. That was awfully cute (and actually made me want a Hot Pocket -- I haven't eaten one in years!). I know why Snoop Dog needs money, but I'm so glad he's doing more commercials and such. He's so much fun to watch!

  2. While I'm always for more rewards rather than less (still smarting from them taking away free soy and syrup), I'm not sure I'll ever take advantage of any of these new rewards... And I'm surprised you couldn't redeem your free reward at Teavana before this...

  3. Teavana doesn't really serve beverages though. They're more into selling loose tea, then upselling the hell out of it.

  4. Except they do sell beverages... They do individual cups of their tea to go, hot and cold.
