Starbucks Expands Mobile Payments Trial to NYC
Starbucks today expanded an existing trial beyond Seattle and North Carolina today to include 300 stores in New York City and Suffolk and Nassau Counties in New York state (Long Island). BlackBerry and iPhone users can download the Starbucks Card Mobile App to manage a Starbucks card account and make mobile payments at select stores. The app lets Starbucks Card holders check their balance, reload their card and also make payment. The app also lets users check their My Starbucks Rewards status and find local shops. The app is available in the iPhone App Store for the iPhone and from Starbuck's web site for BlackBerries.
