*Starbucks fans unite! We need as many signatures as possible before October 16*
I love Starbucks and go there daily. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
But the soy/syrup changes Starbucks is making to the Gold rewards are just such a bad idea. Please sign if you agree with me that Starbucks should keep soy and syrups free for rewards members.
Sure Starbucks may not be "local" and "hip" but it is the best of the "corporate" coffee, and they provide a great atmosphere with friendly and genuine employees.
I felt like their Gold card was great because it rewarded people on a daily basis for supporting them - and now that is being pulled with the new card changes, there is no reward, and no benefit. Yes you still get a free drink, but that was the BONUS of the card, not the benefit. the benefits are gone.
Customers were able to convince Starbucks to switch from using crushed up bugs in some products, I know we can get them to reconsider on this decision, too! The most ridiculous part for me is that after all this time of having a cool benefit, Starbucks wants to now charge customers more if they're vegan or lactose intolerant or just like soy milk better? That makes no sense at all.
It's no secret that Starbuck isn't cheap - and charging even more to very loyal customers who just want some soy milk or a syrup seems like a terrible business decision. Please sign if you agree the benefits should be brought back like the free soy and syrup.
