  • Easy tipping Jul 28, 2020

    By Crying mama
    What I really love about the Starbie’s app is 1) you can leave a tip through the app (which you cannot cannot do with a debit card, and therefore to use a debit card to pay you have to have a side hobby of saving quarters to tip baristas with); and 2) touchless payment. Free coffee now and then from redeeming stars doesn’t hurt either! Related to the tip, here is something I figured out about redeeming stars: if you pay for one transaction all with stars, then there is no way to tip the barista through the app. That’s no fair to the barista! So I usually save my stars until I'm also getting coffee for a friend or two, and pay for all but one drink with stars, and pay $ through the app for the one drink. Then I can still leave a tip through the app to cover all the drinks. Yay! If I dont have friends to share coffee with on any given day, I can always just buy a coffee for the person behind me and thereby still be able to tip through the app. It’s fun!! Personal note: I’m 20+ years sober and can’t have carbs anymore due to diabetes. Thank goodness for espresso with stevia and cream!!! It’s a party I can still enjoy!!! “🎵Life’s simple pleasures are the best! All the little things that make you smile and glow🎵”

    Order status and promotion notifications are grouped together; you cannot turn off promotions without losing the order updates as well. This leaves a bitter taste in my mouth that I have to wash down with some of their delicious coffee... I do appreciate that they keep track of inventory so well, including types of flavoring etc.

  • App update lost some helpful features Nov 29, 2018

    By Roninsakura33
    The mobile app is so useful, however, the last update seemed to have gotten rid of some features I found helpful. For one, I don’t like that now when you go Into the history, it no longer shows the date and time of your purchase, so if you need to take a screenshot of your “receipt” it does not include the complete purchase info, which renders it less useful. It shows a receipt number, which is not useful to me, and it is inconvenient to have to screenshot both the history list AND the purchase itself. Why did you get rid of this? Why fix what wasn’t broken? Also, you have removed the date info for the Starbucks cards. It was helpful to have the info on the start dates of my cards to differentiate the cards, especially the similar ones. It used to have that info before. It also is frustrating when the app does not let you choose the store you want and sometimes suggests some faraway store. It would be helpful if it also told you reasons why you are unable to use the app - ie, store shut off mobile orders, store is closing, etc. Otherwise, you think it’s your phone or app and you waste a lot of time. I also would like that the app kept the history details for the “free” items, because just because it’s free, doesn’t mean you don’t want to record WHAT you had. But, for the most part, I like using the app.

    Customization not always easy. Sometimes a delay in processing when paying with stars. Contact less ordering and pick up a plus. Can't wait to get to go back to using our own cups, then I won't use the app because you can't specify to hold order until own cup is brought I to make drink in and reduce waste.

  • Love the app but most stores are slow to make your mobile order! Dec 13, 2017

    By Cattngo
    The app is almost perfect. I wish you can customize the mobile orders a little more like put someone else’s name on it when you order for someone else. But that’s not my big gripe and why it only gets 3 stars. There are two reasons. First of all, one less start is due to store locater being slow half the time unless it happens to be your store that you note as a favorite. The 2nd reason, and it’s a big reason, is that most stores are now very slow to process your mobile order. I can expect 5-10 more minutes on top of what they estimate for you. A lot of them just say they have many drinks. Well the system should have factored that in. If you give estimated times then factor in how many drinks just got into the system. I do think many stores just don’t pay attention to the mobile orders as much. I literally see them pull the labels out for those who are at the stores ordering and let the other machine that has the mobile order sit there longer. Starbucks: If you want more people to use mobile order then have your baristas pay attention to the mobile order labels being printed. Those are your most loyal customers and don’t want to wait 10-15 minutes for their drink to be made. It defeats the whole purpose of having mobile orders!

  • Needs more options like unsweetened and sugar free May 6, 2018

    By Secrete fan
    I wish I could like the app more. It’s great that everyone at the office can place their order and then one person pick it up. The issue is that in this day and age with so many people being diabetic and others doing Keto you sugar free or unsweetened options are severely lacking. For example chai tea has no sugars or carbs naturally. The chai “syrup” that is used in the chai drinks and fraps does. There needs to be an unsweetened option or an option in the app to have tea bags used instead. The same goes for the coconut milk and almond milk. There needs to be unsweetened options in the app. My office use to do Starbucks runs multiple times a week but we don’t anymore because too many people can’t place an order online through the app as sugar free, unsweetened, and Keto options are not readily available. If they want a chai latte they have to go in to order it and asked for it to be made with tea bags. Also need a way to report that the drink you ordered online, and picked up is wrong. This is another reason we stopped our Starbucks runs is that one person would pick up the orders for everyone and not know if something was wrong. I ordered a pink drink but what I got didn’t have any coconut milk in it. I took a picture of the drink, label, and order to prove it but couldn’t do anything about it while I was at work.

  • Very lame app and poor costumer service over the phone Jan 18, 2020

    By Ueshole
    About two weeks ago ,I tried to create an account to enjoy the rewards ,well, its imposible. Why? I created ,then signing in ,nothing happen . Just ‘we’re sorry but we’re unable to log you in ,please try again’ . I got help over the line ,the agent was nice ,but even when he finally could create a password with my e-mail ,he never want to give it to me . Then , ill wait 24 hrs because they’re a system ‘has a problem’ okay ,let’s wait . 24 hrs goes by ,but no success trying the app or the website . A gentleman send me a gift card with 7 dollars (THANKS STARBUCKS) . Waiting the week to get the card ,registered online and enjoy the rewards ,everything that I mention before ,happens again. Is such a lame software at the website or app ,trying with iPhone 8 or galaxy s edge ,is the same . Creating another account with new e-mail ,the same . Is amazing how a company like Starbucks ,has a very poor app and nobody can tell you what’s going on . If people or companies create a platform who let costumers enjoy programs ,they should to give it maintenance. Worst is the people over the phone who doesn’t know about the website or the app. They won’t reset your account and you need to wait 24 hrs . Starbucks should have a kiosk like McDonald’s and make his service faster and easy. The app is a failure system along with the website ,PERIOD.

    This app is ridiculous. When I'm trying to get a receipt it only shows me the amount, not what I ordered. I go to previously ordered section and there are blank spots where items should be so it doesn't even show what I just ordered. I can't cancel an order when it auto defaulted to pick the store I normally go to instead of the one I intentionally selected to pick up from at the start of my order. And yes, I even updated the app. Starbucks needs to fix their app.

  1. Easy access to your Starbucks Gold card and gift cards, available at the touch of a button on mobile devices
  2. In a hurry? Skip the line! Store your favorite orders in the app and order ahead with one click
  3. View your receipt and tip your barista at a glance, all within the app

  • Amazing And Easy Sep 20, 2020

    By Vinn08
    I order on here very often and have for most of the Summer and it is so easy. You just order from the app and then pick up at the Starbucks near you. You don’t have to wait in line to order and instead get a separate line which moves quickly because everyone is picking up. I absolutely love Starbucks and I am obsessed with their refreshers and frappucinos. Overall, the app was well thought out and if something isn’t available I’ve learned all you do is call the store and ask if they have it and they’ll make it available on the app quick. I love the experience and the stars you earn. I end up having enough stars for a breakfast from the bakery the next time I get Starbucks. Thank you for doing such an amazing job and I plan on continuing to go to Starbucks in the future. Please don’t hate on the app. I haven’t had a bad experience and I’m convinced most of you are trolls. I hope this gets to Starbucks customer service because I truly do love the app and Starbucks as a whole. I can’t thank you enough for the quick and easy drinks almost every morning this past Summer!!! Five stars and absolutely amazing!!!

  • Needs Update after Removing Clover®️ Machines May 20, 2020

    By UtahRugbyGuy
    Update ✭ ✭ ✭ : Originally gave 5-stars but there needs to be an option to order pour-overs specifically. Since all remaining stores removed Clover machines, whenever I order my Featured Dark roast with shots after 11 am, 70% of the time, baristas don’t know that they need to do a pour-over. So I get there and they say they used pre-brewed Pikes or bitter medium roast from the container and I just spent a whopping $8 - $12 (dep on # of xtra shots) on a coffee I DIDN’T ORDER and they have to dump it and remake it as a pour-over, wasting their time, my time, coffee, etc. So please, there used to be an option to order, let’s say, Verona using the Clover®️ and I could add everything I wanted. But Clover’s are all gone now. So just replace that feature with us being able to select the roast we want as a pour-over so the baristas don’t get confused. It’s such a waste of time. Original Review ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ Very close to perfect app for my coffee habit. Love ordering ahead or even in the store ordering from app. I feel like there were one or two things I would have suggested changing or adding but I can’t think of it right now :)

    I'm new to Starbucks. I wish I had more opportunities to try new items. My daughter likes to try new items and spends all of her allowance on new drinks. Sometimes she doesn't like them and she feels like she wasted her money. Maybe offer a smaller size to taste. I would pay $2 to taste a drink then spend $7 if I liked it. The more I try the more I buy. Win Win.

    Update: one year later and this still is not fixed. Do not put your gift cards on this app!! I have about 5 gift cards that I cannot use since they have small amounts and do not pay for the full order. It also requires you to reload specific amounts from your card. So basically, Starbucks is holding your money hostage at all times.

  • App is useful but not perfect Dec 8, 2020

    By Falalalalalala5432
    There’s tons of great things about the app but I’ll just say why I gave it a 4. Most of us are using the app because we want to grab and go. With that being said, it would be nice if the store information was updated more frequently. I ordered from the app because the store had drive thru pickup and in store pick up. I never do drive thru pick up because it is always so crowded, hence why I use the app. At this particular store, both options were available but when arriving there was a sign at the door saying in store was closed and to pick up mobile orders at drive thru. This pretty much makes the app useless. Please update info for store because I can always go to a different Starbucks to pickup my order. There also needs to be another method for mobile pickup. When arriving to pickup order, you have to wait for a barista to go to that area to be noticed, sometimes waiting for awhile. It’s not there fault at all, but I think there needs to be an efficient way to do this. I notice that when I mobile order ahead of time, the customers that order inside the store get their drinks first. Not sure how that adds up. The app is great though but it’s useless if some of these inefficiencies continue.

  • Starbucks app and rewards program . Sep 4, 2017

    By StarbuckHappy
    I love the app for most part but it gets frozen or does not always update the purchase at times. Bonus reward is great for most part, only I feel I don't get offers based on my purchase but they want to sell. I have never received any offers to purchase teavana teas which is what I buy most often . I also buy other beverages such as latte, cappuccinos and frappes. I have not gotten any offers for that also . I don't like the fact some offer are time constraint related especially if it before 11am or between 11am to 2 pm. Due to work not possible to get starsbucks between that time or even stop over at one in morning if running late. Also they keep sending me the same offers over and over again of which I don't care of which combo of warm sandwich , protein box and a breakfast sandwich. If I don't use a offer , I don't receive a offer next week so I don't get bonus stars for two weeks. I love to receive the offers based on what I buy , bakery items only offers, teavana teas only offers and breakfast sandwichs only offer and also any purchase offers are good too. I can also deal with any bevearage purchase offers also.

  • Okay but not perfect Jan 28, 2021

    By xXxXXxJO..xXxXx
    I love mobile ordering. I love that I can place an order from home, have it ready by the time I reach the store, and leave with minimal exposure. I'm mildly annoyed by how the app intentionally hinders itself when you don't share your location. I'm an adult, I know how to choose where I want to pick up from, and I don't need you to patronizingly tell me, "are you sure you want to order? Looks like you're too far away from the store!" Shoo, Big Brother. I really love and really appreciate that Starbucks is going the extra mile by closing stores to sanitize everything to the nines after reported COVID cases. Can you guys take a suggestion, though? Is it possible to mark stores that are closed on the app? To me, closing off mobile ordering and giving a message that "a barista here will be willing to take your order in person" means to me that the store is still open. I've TWICE now driven all the way to Starbucks only to find the location closed at 7 or 8 in the morning. Meanwhile the hours on the app, the website, and the oft-neglected location Facebook show that it's currently "open". Please please please, I'm begging, please make it so that the app can be a real-time reflection of stores that are *actually* open.

  • Reloading the Card Needs to be Optional May 3, 2019

    By Tequila.97
    I would actually choose Starbucks so much more frequently if I was able to pay the total amount of my order instead of having to reload a minimum of $10 every time I order. Which I didn’t even know it was $10, I thought it was $15 because the lowest minimum of $10 isn’t the prompted amount. I want to be able to pay my order total- not give you my money like an ATM at a bank so you can use it at your free will until or if I ever order again. There’s no reason we should not be able to do pay as you go! Every Starbucks near my house and my job are high volume. I have to order on the app to ensure I won’t be late- regardless of how early or how much time I have. Wait time estimations are unreliable, using the app is so much faster and easier, however, I very rarely do because of the lack of pay as you go feature. I almost always choose competitors such as local shops, convenience stores, or Dunkin Donuts because I know I can be in and out of these places, unlike Starbucks. Ive ordered in Starbucks and waited on average 10 mins every time and that doesn’t even include the very busy days. You are taking away an added convenience and because of it losing potential sales!

  • NEEDS UPDATES Mar 25, 2018

    By Josh-88
    I’ve been using the Starbucks app going on 4 years now. The app is showing some major glitches as of late. Twice in the past two weeks have I not received my mobile order because the app randomly “auto selects” a different option and then even after I reselect the correct option it will then for a second time reselect the WRONG option. Unaware of this I don’t notice and as a result don’t receive my order. Per example it continually selects an old store I haven’t ordered from in months, I will change it to my current store and again without me noticing it will auto select the previous store. I then find out when I get to the correct store and my order wasn’t placed. Today the app “auto selected” an old seasonal gift card rather than my gold card that I use daily to order with. It showed the picture of my gold card when I placed my order but the last four numbers were different, the picture just hadn’t changed. So when I arrived to pick up my order I open the app to see it yet again had not placed my order. The Starbucks store teams and customer service are always gracious and fix the issue which I greatly appreciate! However this is unacceptable that the Mobile App can not deliver the same results and continually cause failed orders.

  • Pretty good, however... Dec 1, 2018

    By Damir Gonzalez
    Pretty good app overall however these past few days I am not able to see my gold account star count at all and rewards accrued anymore for some reason and I’ve been all over the app to try to find it. Already tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but no luck. Once this if fixed I will gladly change my star rating. Also another quick suggestion would be, as of late in my case (and I’m sure I’m not the only one), I’ve noticed that stores sell out of certain items faster so when you mobile order something sometimes you get to the store to pick up and they’re out and most of the time they don’t even ask you what else more you may want until you ask them about it. Yes, I get most stores are insanely packed and baristas are overwhelmed but to avoid this issue and also help the barista then perhaps the app should give you an alternate food option in case what you ordered food wise sells out during the mobile order process so then that way the barista doesn’t have to wait until you arrive for your order to ask you what else you may want and try to keep track of something like that while customers keep rolling in, again just a friendly suggestion.
