This is one of my favorite apps. My favorite features are the integration with Passbook which allows your payment card to appear on your lock screen whenever you arrive at Starbucks, the Starbucks card management and auto-reload option, and as of recently the ability to place your order for store pickup. That last feature really works amazingly well! I was running late for my train to work yesterday and wouldn't have had time to wait in line at the store to order my breakfast, but I was able to quickly place the order from the app. I went up to the serving area and the barista handed me my order within about two minutes. It is crazy convenient. My only request would be a favorites tab where I could store and quickly access my most common orders. Maybe that already exists and I just missed it. I did see they show you your recent orders which is pretty handy. This is an all-around great app that I recommend to any Starbucks customer.
Great APP and love the rewards!
The only complaint I have is that there should be a way to put in a receipt when the Barista forgets to charge your Starbucks rewards card when you reload your card. This has happened to me three times now and I didn't receive a star because the barista loaded my card but didn't pay with my Starbucks rewards card. He charged my credit card for the total order, even the reload. Hence, I didn't get my star! Really annoying. And when I mentioned it to him to please take my hibiscus refresher off my Starbucks rewards card, he wouldn't and said this is how he always does it and my card is reloaded. I tried to explain what I was wanting him to do and he turned his back on me and pretty much let me know he didn't care. Kinda rude, and for no reason. I would understand if they were slammed and super busy, but I was the only customer in there at the time.
Perks, Points and Free Coffee
Lots of complainers on this review page. C'mon, everyone loves Starbucks... Even if they pretend they don't, in the presence of other secret Starbucks lovers... You know you've gone though the drive thru with your sunglasses and hat on. You can pay with your phone and never open your wallet. We all know your phone is more accessible than a wallet. After the rewards cup fills with gold stars (which means you did a good job), you receive a complimentary coffee. Plus they offer $2.00 off breakfast sandwiches. Seriously, how can one complain when you are rewarded and appreciated with a cup of coffee love. Don't be mean to a company just because you're upset about the money they make. They're brilliant business people in a company with a cool culture. Celebrate, with a gold star and a comp'd, earned beverage.
I'm happy summer is back so I can enjoy an iced matcha latte. Mmm.
