Starbucks mobile payment app for Android

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2011

Since they already have their own iOS app, Starbucks is now bringing mobile payments to Android users, as well. The Starbucks for Android app is free. Just add credit to your mobile Starbucks Card and scan the app’s barcode at the cash register.

It’s available on devices running Android 2.1 or later and the service will also locate all Starbucks shops in your area and offer even more incentives via Starbucks’ rewards program. Right now, there are about 6,800 stores that support mobile payments and the company is planning to add an additional 1,000 locations in July.

Starbucks app lets you pay by phone

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2011

Do you like the idea of paying for things by using your phone? What about coffee? Well, Starbucks has announced that its mobile payment test has concluded and that the service is now available in all stores around the country.

This means that you can now pay for your coffee if you use the iPhone or a Blackberry, using the official Starbucks App. The app can be funded using either your credit card or PayPal. Once your jittery coffee fueled hands get money in your app account, all you need to do is place your order and then hold your device with the barcode on the screen under the scanner at the counter. Pretty convenient no?

Starbucks Free WiFiThe coffee peddling behemoth Starbucks announced today that it will not be outdone by independent coffee houses nor other national chains and will begin offering unlimited free WiFi to it’s customers. Starbucks has had WiFi available for some time now, for a fee, and has most recently offered 2 free hours per day to cardholders but now is giving the service away to all.

This announcement no doubt will come as great news to frequenters of the coffee houses and bad news to anyone trying to sell WiFi within the vicinity. Please note however that the free service is only for Starbucks stores operated directly by the corporation, and not to licensed locations commonly found in airports or grocery stores.

Starbucks unveils iPhone appsPizza Hut has their own iPhone app, so why not Starbucks? The first application is called myStarbucks and is basically a store locater and beverage information tool. Users can use it to check the nutrition value of the coffee or food that Starbucks offers. Good luck with that.

The other app helps users pay off the remaining credit on their cards, allowing one to transfer money into it. Starbucks hopes that the iPhone applications will give users a faster way to order, thereby making more sales.

It was first announced in February with a target launch spring 2008, the service has been quietly running on and off since April, including two hours of daily access at any Starbucks store or AT&T hotspot.

T-Mobile users with existing hotspot accounts are supposed to have ongoing access to the network in Starbucks stores. The service has been available on a spotty basis, but this is an official “yes it’s working” announcement that has been a while in coming. Hopefully we can put an end to this chapter and the service stays on at long last.
