The NY Times reports that Starbucks has a new rewards program where you can get free soy milk/syrup, free same-visit refills on drip coffee (hot or iced), and two free hours of WiFi per day. It’s free to sign up, but you will need a Starbucks gift card to do so. In addition, if you sign up by July 14th you’ll get a coupon for a “free handcrafted beverage”. Might be worth buying a $5 gift card next time and turning this into a buy one get one free offer.
This isn’t bad for me. I usually use the Starbucks as a place for reading/studying and often drink the house coffee anyway, so now a $2.50 coffee also gives me free refills and internet access.
