Show Your Phone To Pay At Starbucks

January 19th, 2011

As of today, you can now pay at any U.S. Starbucks by having the barista scan your iPhone.

This is how it works:

You download the free iOS (or Blackberry) Starbucks app and fill up your Starbucks card with credit (like any other Starbucks card.) The app then displays a barcode that the barista scans and voila!

Not of fan of Starbucks and their new Trenta cup? This kind of technology is so easy to use that I’m sure other chain coffee shops will only be a year or two behind. Will this make paying for your coffee at Peet’s easier? Yes, but they’ll still take their sweet time making it.
