Tips and things to know about using the new Starbucks app

SEATTLE, 2016-Apr-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — Starbucks recently unveiled a newly redesigned mobile app for iOS and Android users making it even easier for customers to pay, redeem Rewards and have all of the benefits of being a Gold loyalty member.

With the redesign, many things stayed the same while a few things changed. Here are the top 10 things – including a few tips – to know about using the Starbucks app:

1. Updated Dashboard

Everything you love about the Starbucks app is still quickly found at the top of your main Dashboard: payment, store locator, gifting and ordering (for pick up or delivery).

2. Check Your Stars

Available Stars show up at the top of your Dashboard, and Gold members earn a Star Reward after collecting 125 Stars. Tip: When your status changes from Green to Gold, your Star Count resets to zero and you begin collecting Stars towards your first Star Reward.*

3. Track Your Stars

Click on “History” to see how you earned your Stars and the exact number of Stars you’ve collected.

4. Personalized Offers

Below your Star count on the Dashboard, you’ll see personalized content from Starbucks, tailored just for you including offers, Pick of the Week offerings and important dates to know.

5. Reward Status – Green or Gold?

From the Dashboard, click on the number of Stars at the top, which will take you to a Status page. Here you’ll see your status (Green or Gold) at the top of the screen, as well as an interactive Stars display making it even easier to track Stars and Rewards. Tip: Click on “History” to see your Gold requalification date for Gold Status. Some customers need zero stars to requalify so are actually Gold past the visible date.*

6. Where to Find Rewards**

Star Rewards and Birthday Rewards appear on the home dashboard and on the “Rewards page,” found by clicking on the number of Stars on the Dashboard. Use yours to try a new food or drink item, or treat yourself to a beloved favorite.

7. Redeem Rewards

Earned Star Rewards can now be redeemed using Mobile Order & Pay. Available Rewards and Offers appear when confirming your order and can be used simply by clicking “Redeem.”

8. Jump the Line

Click ‘Order’ to use Mobile Order & Pay, order your food and beverage items ahead of time, and jump the line.

9. Treat a Friend

For special occasions or just because, a Starbucks eGift Card is the quickest way to make someone feel special.

10. Discover Music

Use the app to find out what songs are playing in our stores, and discover your next favorite artist.

Starbucks Coffee Korea launches new Starbucks® app on the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch

Seoul, Korea, 2015-11-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — Starbucks Coffee Korea today launched the new Starbucks® app on the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. Through the pre-loaded Starbucks® app, customers in Korea can track their My Starbucks Rewards™ status and pay for Starbucks purchases directly from the wearable device. This marks the company’s first Starbucks® app on a wearable device in Asia.

“We’re pleased to make the Starbucks digital experience convenient and rewarding for our customers,” said SJ Paik, chief marketing officer, Starbucks Korea. “This new Starbucks app for the Gear S2 smartwatch reflects Starbucks continued commitment globally to lead, innovate and connect with customers using mobile technology.”

Custom Display Options

With the circular design of the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch, Starbucks fans can access uniquely designed Starbucks smartwatch face designs, such as the My Starbucks Rewards™ cup icon design. The Starbucks smartwatch face designs were specially created by Starbucks and new designs will be regularly available on the Samsung Gear S2 Manager app to bring even greater personalization to the mobile Starbucks experience.

Loyalty and Mobile Innovation

Starbucks Coffee Korea continues to create emotional connections with customers through a number of key loyalty and digital offerings, such as the debut of the Starbucks Card in 2009 and the launch of the My Starbucks Rewards™ program in 2011. Last year, Siren Order, a convenient mobile beverage pre-ordering and payment service launched and, at the time, was a first of its kind for the company. The launch of the Starbucks® app on the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch is another example of how Starbucks continues to bring relevant digital innovations to customers in Korea.

As the mobile industry leader across Korea, Samsung launched the Gear S2 smartwatch in the market this past September to enhance and innovate the mobile experience.
