Abby’s Apps: Starbucks

This is the third in my set of favorite shopping apps (not my third favorite, the order of the posts is random). If shopping apps do not strike your fancy, hang in there until Wednesday when I start my favorite photo apps!

Review of Starbuck' iOS App | Abby's Apps at #31Days


Title: Starbucks

Cost: Free for iOS and Android

What It Does: Fans can locate the nearby stores, pay for purchases, reload or purchase gift cards, receive messages about sales and freebies, and redeem rewards.

What I Like: When I originally joined the Starbucks Rewards program, I used a gift card that I reloaded as needed. (I lived at least forty-five minutes from the nearest store, so I did not use it often.) This app makes it easier for me to have my “card” handy without having to keep it in my wallet all the time.

If ever you go to Starbucks, I suggest using this app or even a gift card that you can register to earn rewards. Members earn a free snack or drink after every twelve purchases and on their birthdays.

What I Dislike: Sometimes the app’s store finder glitches and will not find any stores near me, but will find stores in the same area if I enter the zip code or city name.

  1. I use this app when I go to starbucks and I like not having to worry about having the reward card on me and it’s in my phone. But I feel like it takes FOREVER to earn anything at starbucks……oh well at least i get a free drink for my bday!

      It takes me months and months to earn rewards since I don’t live near a Starbucks, but I’m excited when it happens!

  2. I use this app on daily. When I need to get out the house. I take my laptop and head to Starbucks. Since, I am a Gold member I get fee refills. I totally love Starbucks.

      Oh, I wish I lived close enough to go to Starbucks every day! I’d probably have to give myself a coffee allowance, though. I always forget about the free refills on brewed coffee and tea (when you go at least 5 times in a year), thanks for mentioning it.
