In addition to the rewards available to Welcome level and Green level members, such as a free birthday drink or treat, Starbucks Rewards Gold level members get a personalized gold card and a free food or drink item after earning another twelve stars. Details are available at Starbucks.com.
Upon enrolling in the Starbucks Reward program, a new member joins the Welcome level. This entitles the member to a free birthday treat or drink, a birthday coupon for 15 percent off purchases made at the Starbucks online store, and custom offers via email.
If a member collects five stars in 12 months, he moves up to the Green level. In addition to the Welcome level rewards, Green level members are entitled to free in-store refills on brewed coffee and tea. These refills are available regardless of the original drink purchased.
Members who collect 30 stars in 12 months progress to the Gold level. Gold level members get a personalized Gold Rewards card. Also, Gold members who collect an additional 12 stars receive a free food or drink item.
A star is earned for each purchase using a Starbucks Rewards card. The number of items purchased and the dollar amount of the purchase have no effect on the number of stars earned.
