Generally speaking, humans can agree that anything that gets you to coffee faster is a very good thing.
For years, you’ve been able to buy a cup of joe through the Starbucks app. Now, with Apple Watch, you can pay for a Pike Place/caramel macchiato/Cake Pop with a flick of the wrist. As app features go, this is obviously a pretty good...perk.
The Starbucks app on Apple Watch opens to your Starbucks card, which shows your current balance and number of reward stars. Just tap Pay and scan the barcode. No balance left on your Starbucks card? Just tap Add Money to either quick-add a set amount (like $10 or $25) or choose your own. Payments go through Apple Pay. Bonus: Every time you pay with the app, you earn stars, which, of course, can be redeemed for free coffee. And that’s also a very good thing.
