Fact Sheet: Starbucks Card Mobile App & Mobile Payment
Launched in September 2009, the Starbucks Card Mobile App for iPhone® and iPod® touch was a breakthrough for Starbucks Card customers, allowing them to manage their Starbucks Cards through the convenience of their mobile device. Customer input on My Starbucks Idea led to the development of the Starbucks Card Mobile App for select BlackBerry smartphones in September 2010. With the Starbucks Card Mobile App, customers can manage their card account, reload their card balance directly from their smartphone with a major credit card, check their My Starbucks Rewards status, find nearby Starbucks stores and pay for purchases with the newly expanded mobile payment capability.
Starting January 19, 2011, customers in nearly 6,800 company-operated stores in the U.S. can experience mobile payment. The mobile payment feature allows users to pay for their Starbucks purchases with their supported BlackBerry smartphone, iPhone or iPod touch. The device will display a barcode that can be used just like a Starbucks Card to make a purchase.
