Starbucks--I LOVE your App!

By
Real Estate Agent with Hogue and Belong Bankers Hill- San Diego, CA




Very cool---------I now can buy coffee at Starbucks using their mobile iPhone App. All I do is purchase a Starbucks card, load it up with $$, and register it at their website. I then download the Starbucks App on my iPhone, open it up, press "card" and my new balance comes up. I hit "touch to pay" and a bar-code comes up, which is then scanned at the register.

I love this App.

Stacey  - Yes for sure---reaching into the depths of MY handbag can be dangerous-------- with alligators and perhaps piranhas lurking there!

Sounds like an App that I need to get. I hate having to fumble around with all the giftcards and I Never know what the balance is!

Not brand new technology, yet Starbucks is so ahead of the curve. I love having less "cards" -----it just simplifies my life!

Someone gave me a Starbucks card the other day. I think I am going to try and load it up right now (great way to avoid work ;-)

I've got that thing on my phone and I keep forgetting about it.  I need to recharge my brain so I can remember to use it.

Cash is becoming obsolete for a lot of people. With people using their phone as money it's important to keep the phone secure.

Deborah, that's good news for Starbucks lovers! Starbucks is keeping up with the changes in technology. What I like about it is that we don't have to pay cash. We just need to take care of our phones.

Thank you for sharing!

Alan-

Seems like I never actually handle money all that much anymore.

 

Regina-

Funny you mention that-----at Starbucks today, I said to the barista that their product was not really coffee, it's customer service ---plus they definitely created a niche. They are for sure on the cutting edge of technology.
