Convenient as anything. However...
Mobile ordering is what I'm talking about here. I've had no real issues with the app itself, aside from a couple of times it just wouldn't reload funds no matter what I did, it basically would just freeze. Later I found out that every attempt I had made, it actually charged my credit card the amount (but nothing ever showed on the app account). That was a pain, but hasn't happened in a long while.
Now mobile ordering is where it can sometimes really show its "beta-ness." A few times the order never got to the store (so I was told by the barista, so take that with a grain of salt), but most recently the issues have been from the baristas themselves just neglecting the mobile orders altogether. Today, for example, I placed my order 10 minutes before arriving, waited 20 minutes in the store itself, before finally, a barista that recognized me as a regular leaned to her co-worker and quietly said, "...did you get his mobile order for him?"
Only then was my drink actually started. I watched almost 20 people cycle through the line as I was waiting and thought to myself, "well s***, if I wanted to deal with all this, I would've just hopped in line and paid cash, and I'd be out of here already." And that kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think?
Really takes away the awesomeness of it all and I hope this is just a one time thing. And no, I shouldn't have to remind them. At all.
LOVE THIS!!! ITS TOO FREAKING EASY!!!
Using the new app being a customer is now too easy!!! Forgot my purse but NEED something cool to soothe the headache?? Never fear!! Open my wallet in my iPhone or the app and it brings up my gold card WITH MY BALANCE!!! Order my drink with 2 extra shots alfagato and pay with my balance!!! Want to treat my friend driving me around looking for it? If I have it set up for auto-reload and my balance is low it will load my card so I can buy them a drink, but wait, we don't know where the nearest store is.... Just click stores and look for my closest green spot is! No need looking for all that wasted paper sitting in stores to get your free song or app of the week, now you'll never miss an older one because they are right on the app!! Load and play while you're sipping your own tasty creation!! And I love being gold and getting the inside info on when the yearly rarity is about to come in stores and can be ground to my coffee maker, now to pick which one, my French Press or my flat bottom auto-drip! But that's why they employ the best baristas and the others work at stores that Have coffee and your choice is regular or decaf!! At Starbucks they have the best people, the best app, and THE BEST COFFEE to sip with your favorite snack from a sweet treat to a protein packed box!!!!
Very useful app, but...
First let me say that I love the Starbucks app! I use it daily! It is so helpful to be able to pay from my phone or from my wrist using my Apple Watch into get the rewards from Starbucks's rewards program. The ordering feature is also very helpful. I use that on a regular basis as well. I very much like being able to order my drinks and have them ready for me when I get there. But there is one problem. I am not able to customize my drinks in the app to the way that I like them. What this means is that I either have to not use this feature and go inside and wait in line or I have to settle for a drink that I really don't care for. For example one drink that I like is a Venti peppermint hot chocolate. That much the app can do however I have been unable to find a way to specify that I like it extra hot. Another example would be chai lattes. One of the drinks that I get regularly is a Venti iced chai tea latte but I am and three pumps of Oprah chai in with the regular chai to give it a more earthy flavor. I'm unable to make this customization within the order feature of the app. Like I said I use the app every day and I love it! I only hope that Starbucks continues to improve this.
