The stars are aligning for Starbucks at the RSC

On Thursday, Aug. 4, Starbucks will be closing at noon for an exciting update: The campus coffee shop will be upgraded with the capability to accept and award Starbucks loyalty rewards.

The Starbucks Rewards program allows users to earn free drinks, food, and gifts. Customers keep track of and redeem their rewards points through the Starbucks smartphone app.

Have dining dollars? Great news, the WSU RSC Starbucks will still be able to accept these payment methods, and stars can still be earned. However, dining dollars can not be used to load gift cards.
