Great app, easy to use!
This was one of the first apps I ever used with mobile payment and I've been using it for at least a couple of years now. It's beautiful and easy to use. I was really glad when y'all made the inbox section easier to find to make those message notifications go away. However, the most recent update has made rewards look like it has a permanent badge icon that I keep accidentally tapping on because it feels like something that needs my attention. I always save my rewards for special occasions when I want to treat myself instead of just getting my daily coffee so that icon gives me anxiety when I see it but can't clear it.
I also wish that the little green pay button on the home screen would update more often to stay consistent with the actual amount left on the card. Sometimes I'll manually refresh from the manage page to see my current balance but the amount on the green button doesn't update. But maybe that's just to encourage people to set up auto reload 🤷🏻♀️
Also a sidenote: I love that the games that open in Safari will now keep you logged in.
I like the convenience of using the app, especially when I accidentally forget my wallet at home.
I do wish that I didn’t have to sign up for the challenges, like buying 3 drinks before a certain date, etc..., because I am not checking this app every single day of the week.
Also, I use it a lot at the Starbucks at Target which allows the app to be used from the lock screen instead of having to open the app, but it would be nice if it would tell me that I have 125 stars for a free drink. Plus, I can’t use my Target card which gets me 5% off when I make purchases with it. I can use the card at the Target Starbucks, but then I won’t get the points. It’s a conundrum, I agree, but 5% off of a $5 drink isn’t going to be much, but every little bit helps.
There’s a notifications bug in current release that causes app indicator to show a notification bubble even after you’ve gone in and deleted the new inbox messages that came in. Also, clearing the notification from outside of the app in iOS doesn’t clear them within the app. Or clearing the notification on the AppleWatch doesn’t clear it on the app icon either. You need to fix this longstanding defect!
Another bug exists that shows a basic Starbucks card graphic instead of a Gold Member card graphic when placing a mobile order when pulling up a previous order from history. If placing a completely new order, the card graphic is correct. This hasn’t been fixed in about 3 app versions now and needs to be.
