On the day its rival rolled out long-awaited changes to its loyalty program, Dunkin' announced changes to its own plan, pushing Starbucks out of the spotlight at a time when many of its customers are displeased with the new program details.  Essentially, the coffee chain has decided to move from a loyalty program based on visits to one that rewards customers for how much they spend. Under the old program, people earned a single star for each visit. After they amassed 30 stars, consumers became Gold members, making them eligible to earn a free drink every time they earned 12 stars.  Read the full article at http://www.investopedia.com/stock-analysis/041216/dunkin-and-starbucks-loyalty-programs-collide-dnkn-sbux.aspx?partner=YahooSA
