went live today. The new version isn’t good for those who spend less

earn 2 Stars per dollar spent with a free drink coming it at 125 Stars.
Gold Status now takes 300 stars but the good news is that with the
launch of the new program as long as buy one drink or food item by May
2nd you’ll be granted Gold Status! Find out more at Starbucks.ca
