If you're a huge Starbucks fan who enjoys the perks of having a Starbucks Rewards Card, we have some unfortunate news for you: You'll soon need to bid farewell to your Starbucks Rewards Card as it will be deactivated by June 30, 2020. No need to worry too much, though, because there seems to be a silver lining: A new Starbucks program apparently awaits us.
So what happens to your Stars (Starbucks Rewards' point system) and your current balance until June 30? You may continue enjoying your current Stars on or before June 30, but the remaining balance will be available as store credit or it can be refunded once the new program is launched.
As to what the new Starbucks program will be, the official website is hinting that it will be a combination of the Starbucks Reward plus more benefits. Listed in the FAQs is that Starbucks Philippines "will come up with ways to help you earn and redeem Stars faster.
While we patiently wait for more information on the new program and more detailed guidelines regarding the remaining balance, Starbucks does encourage you to use up your balance before June 30. Starbucks will be releasing more details soon on their website or its mobile application.
