Starbucks has recently unveiled a brand new way to pay for coffee at their thousands (and thousands and thousands) of stores worldwide: via iPhone. With the new Starbucks Card Mobile App, customers can load their Starbucks Cards to their phones. Payments are made with special in-store scanners that read information right off of your phone. The app also presents a faster and more direct way to learn about and earn rewards by using your card. Maybe the best benefit of this new app is never needing to look down at the plastic Starbucks card at the bottom of your purse with the realization that you have no idea how long it has been there or how much money it still has left on it. Once your mobile card runs out of money, you can also recharge it with this app, which is also compatible with PayPal. It’s the payment option of the future, and the app is completely free.
