No one has time to wait in a long line every day for their morning coffee. And if you’re a Starbucks fan, you know that’s often the case.
Well, coffee fanatics, rejoice—this popular coffee shop just made our lives a whole lot easier. With the Starbucks app, you can locate the closest store to you, and once you get there, the app lets you use Mobile Pay, a fast way to pay with a simple scan. You can even use it at drive-thrus! That’ll speed up the line.
The free app also lets you manage your Starbucks Card balance, reload it and track your Stars in the My Starbucks Rewards program. (Just 47 more Stars till your free drink!)
The home screen offers a few additional options. The Messages tab collects Starbucks notifications and special offers. The Drink Builder lets you concoct your signature beverage, and the Food menu provides you with nutritional information and ingredients. (Darn you, banana-nut loaf!) Sift through the food and drink menus so you can make your decision before you hover over the register and hold up the line.
Lastly, the app lets you send your friends Starbucks Card eGifts via email or a Facebook wall post.
