I have been a loyal "gold card" member of Starbucks for nearly 10 years. It used to be that gold card members would get a free coffee for every 12 coffees that they purchased, and that was enough to encourage me to make Starbucks my regular coffee shop, though our city has many other locally owned shops.
However, Starbucks has just come out with a new rewards system that will take 30 coffees to get a free coffee.
This is not progress that warms the customer's heart! As a result, I'm planning on moving Starbucks off my preferred coffee shop location, opening up many other options.
