Starbucks Odyssey members will use their Starbucks Rewards login to access the beta experience. Once logged in, members can participate in 'Journeys,’ which include a series of interactive activities to complete. The activities will range from taking a virtual tour of Starbucks coffee farm Hacienda Alsacia in Costa Rica, to trivia about Starbucks heritage, to playing interactive games like the customer-favorite, Starbucks for Life. This is just the beginning of even more interactive Journeys to come. Journey activities are entertaining ways to learn more about coffee, Starbucks history, and pop culture and offer opportunities to explore coffees and beverages at Starbucks that may lead to the discovery of a new favorite coffee. Once a Journey is complete, members will be awarded with a collectable ‘Journey Stamp’ (a Polygon-based NFT) and bonus Points towards their overall Point total.
As Stamps are collected, members’ Point total will increase, unlocking access to unique benefits and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else. There will be three levels of benefits and experiences that members can unlock, with the benefits and experiences becoming richer and more unique at the highest level. These benefits and experiences could range from a virtual espresso martini-making class at the lower level, to access to unique merchandise and artist collaborations, to invitations to exclusive events at Starbucks Reserve® Roasteries, or even trips to Starbucks Hacienda Alsacia coffee farm in Costa Rica at the higher levels.
The first Journey Stamps are inspired by Starbucks rich history and classic designs, including Starbucks first location in Pike Place Market in Seattle, as well as this year’s “Gift-Wrapped Magic” holiday cup art and motif shapes.
Shortly after beta launch, members will have access to the Starbucks Odyssey market powered by Nifty Gateway, where they can buy or sell Starbucks Odyssey digital collectible Stamps among members, with Polygon as the blockchain for the entire experience starting with the beta launch.
