Our teams have worked hard to provide an industry-leading mobile experience for Starbucks customers, and while we are just scratching the surface, we wanted to share a few exciting updates with you. Next week, the Starbucks for iPhone app is getting a fresh look with new features.
So, what’s new?
• Digital Tipping: This is a top idea you’ve shared with us. We agree. The heart of Starbucks is our store partners, we appreciate the work they do every day and we want to make it possible for you to as well. What better way than by leaving a tip from your mobile device? Once you scan your card to pay, you will have the option to leave a tip.
• Shake to Pay: No matter what you are doing in the app—checking your Star count or browsing the latest Pick-of-the-Week—simply shake your phone and your registered Starbucks Card will appear, ready to scan.
• Easier Access to Account Information: From your homescreen, you’ll easily be able to stay up to date on your My Starbucks Rewards Star count and rewards, inbox messages and more.
Some other ideas you’ve shared here on MSI are coming true too – digital receipts and transaction history. Keep the ideas coming!
To prepare for this update, make sure you know your account password and set a reminder to download or update the new Starbucks for iPhone app on March 19.
And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about all you Android customers —a new mobile experience will be coming your way soon!
