Nothing like realizing that it will now take almost 26 venti coffees at $2.45 each to earn a free drink instead of 12.

What do people get if they are already gold. This new program blows bigtime
Sounds like they are trying to do a little damage control to all the people they pissed off with this new rewards program.

Is there a limit to extensions? I currently have two years of GOLD, and it looks like I'm maxed out and not eligible for any additional extensions, except maybe just the minor 'boost' in the end date (from earlier this year).
Or is it tied to rewards? I haven't redeemed any of my rewards, so maybe that's why? It looks like I still have stars in my rewards cup, but there's no 'countdown' to my next reward.

I really don't understand this program and I really only started it because I got a Starbucks gift card and was getting tons of bonus stars.

Sign up for Starbucks emails in your Starbucks account and they'll tell you what you need to do. Usually buy a certain drink or number of drinks on certain dates, etc.

Per the Starbucks Rewards members page [starbucks.com], existing Gold members will have Gold Status extended another year.

On the old program, Starbucks frequently offered bonus star promos, often tailored to individual members. On the new program, who knows? So far, they've only announced monthly double star days.

Good question... I have been a gold member for a while and do not see any value in it. They need to do it like other reward programs where you get perks for reaching the level. For me it is not really worth it!
