This blog post is a write up about the project I have undertaken as part of Udacity Data Science nanodegree. The project is about data exploration and building a model for Starbucks rewards app data. Starbucks provided a dataset that contains simulated data. The dataset mimics customer behavior on the Starbucks rewards mobile app. According to the project’s introduction, once every few days, Starbucks sends out an offer to users of the mobile app. An offer can be merely an advertisement for a drink or an actual offer such as a discount or BOGO (buy one get one free).
