For most people with a Starbucks Gold Card, getting coffee is part of the daily routine. As of October 16, 2012, the rewards will change. You will not be receiving free soy, syrups, or a tall beverage ( with the purchase of whole beans). Whether you are lactose intolerant, vegan, or just like some flavor in your coffee, these changes will effect you. Please join me in fighting against these changes, so we can get our real rewards back.
