As a card-holding member of the Starbucks fan club, (or as Starbucks prefer to call it, the ‘My Starbucks Rewards’ scheme) I receive emails from them every so often about promotions they have going. Sometimes it’s about special edition coffee beans, sometimes it’s about buy-one-get-one-free offers. This time, though, it was about something called the Star Dash Challenge.
I work right by a Starbucks but I don’t actually go all that often, since I’m quite often on the late shift, when they shut at the same time we do, or if I’m on an earlier shift, I just want to get home! Not to mention the fact that both of my best friends work at (dun dun dunnnn) Costa…
I’m not sure if the challenge was personalised or if it was the same for everyone, but for me, the stakes were:
From now, through to February 8th
– collect 3 stars, get 7 bonus stars
– collect 5 stars, get 15 bonus stars
For those of you who don’t know, every 15 stars you earn gets you a free drink. You just have to keep your card topped up and pay for your drinks or food using it and you earn a star. All I can say to this email is, challenge accepted! I’ll keep you all updated on how I get on!
