Pay For Your Coffee With Starbucks Card Mobile (iPhone and Blackberry For Now)

#Starbucks #Mobile #MyStarbucks App (iPhone and Blackberry For Now)

We knew for a while that with MyStarbucks App, we could locate a Starbucks anywhere we decided to roam around. The store locator let us search by amenities and with directions took us to the store's doorstep. Then there a drink builder feature which we could use to build drinks the way we want and send it to friend as well, so they know what you really want when they go to pick up your cup of Joe.

But now owners of BlackBerry and iPhone can pay for their coffee with the phone as well. Just enter your Starbucks Card number (You can buy one at any Starbucks store) and your BlackBerry Tour, Curve, Storm or iPhone becomes your Starbucks Card. You can register your card, check your balance and track the Stars you earn toward free beverages through My Starbucks Rewards. You can fill up you card with your credit card when you run out.
It is not for all your benefit, The coffee giant also stand to gain by not paying heavy credit card fees when you pay with a credit card. But some of what it saves comes in your way as rewards points, which allow you to have free drinks.
To download Starbucks Card Mobile for your BlackBerry, text GO to 70845. For iPhone, you can download it from the App Store.
Enjoy your coffee, I hope they will bring this to Peet's, where I drink my coffee! :)
