Today our love of coffee and digital innovation come together on a brand new platform called tweet-a-coffee. It’s a fun, thoughtful, unique way to send Starbucks® using Twitter. Surprise your friends or show appreciation to those you follow.
With tweet-a-coffee, you can easily tweet a $5 Starbucks Card eGift to the people on Twitter you’d love to meet for a cup of coffee but will probably never get the chance, or you can send one to a friend in another city. All you need is a Starbucks account and Twitter account.
Here’s how it works. Go to www.starbucks.com/tweetacoffee to connect your Starbucks and Twitter accounts and confirm a payment method. Then from Twitter, type: @tweetacoffee TO @recipient’s name. You can even personalize your tweet with a message. Next, tweet the eGift. Your recipient will receive a link to their $5 eGift, which they can print out, redeem from their phone at participating stores or transfer to a registered Starbucks Card. Your $5 Starbucks Card eGift will be charged to the credit card that you have on-file for your Starbucks account.
I encourage you to try our tweet-a-coffee beta and then share any ideas for making it even better. Tell us right here on MyStarbucksIdea.
