The Starbucks card (i.e. gift card) is the same as a rewards card. However, after loading (a minimum of $5) on it you must register it (free of charge) on http://Starbucks.com to unlock the rewards section of it. The rewards are:
2 hrs of free wi-fi per day
free refills on drip brewed coffee or tea (hot or iced)
free syrup or milk customization (i.e. a vanilla, soy latte would only be charged as a latte). The only milks they charge extra for in the first place are soy or a breve (cream). And they do not include any of the `sauces` like mocha or caramel sauce as a syrup - so a mocha or caramel macchiato would Not be discounted.
There is a Gold card as well - this is really beneficial for those who frequent a Starbucks a few times a week or more...OR for those whose drinks do not receive any of the above benefits or those who buy alot of pastries or merchandise.
There is an annual $25 fee - you get the free wi-fi which you mentioned you wanted.
You receive a 10% discount on most everything in the store everyday - all beverages, food, mugs, whole beans etc. It is essentially a `buy 10 get 1 free deal` since that equates to 10% . I found for myself it`s a great deal because I go to Starbucks 5/wk and my drink is over $3 and doesn`t receive the free benefits usually. And now I can save on everything else too.
You get a free drink on your Bday, one when you sign up for the gold card and other special offers throughout the yr.
Hope this was helpful! If you have any questions please ask!
