And keeping on the topic of coffee rewards, Starbucks has paused the
expiration of Stars until April 1, 2022. Here’s the a quick snippet from
a recent email from Starbucks Rewards:

To that end, we are postponing Starbucks Rewards® members’ Star
expirations through April 1, 2022, to thank you for your continued
loyalty, and for the patience and care you’ve shown our store partners
in these trying times.
