Starbucks Informative - Changes to the Loyalty/members scheme SUCK!
Starbucks are in the middle of changing their members scheme. That's of course up to them. However, the new scheme is nowhere NEAR as good as the old, the Baristas in the several Starbucks I use have no clue what is going on, and Corporate seem to be ignoring the comments on their own website.
Instead of applying the 10% Discount to your order at the point of sale, you now have to collect 'Stars'. If that isn't bad enough, it is ONE star per ORDER not per DRINK. Fifteen Stars gets you a MAILED COUPON for one free drink. I have already seen people splitting their orders and paying for one at a time, and if this continues the lines will just get longer and longer and longer.
There is a small group on Facebook, but if Starbucks are ignoring pleas on their own site, why would they listen to another?
