When it comes to spending money, I like for it to be a slow and deliberate process by swiping a good old fashioned plastic debit card. (None of this waving my phone near the register and having dollars fly out! 😀 )
But for those in the fast lane, you can now send Starbucks Gifts with iMessage via Apple Pay. To promote their lightning quick method of payment, Starbucks has a special offer: Be one of the first to send a $5 or more Starbucks Gift via iMessage and receive a FREE $5 Starbucks Gift for yourself, while supplies last. The offer is valid through April 23 (or until 45,000 offers are redeemed.)
You do need to have the Starbucks app or get it in order to redeem this offer. You’ll also need iMessage so for that I think you have to have an iPhone.
How to get your five bucks from Starbucks
To get the deal, you’ll enable Starbucks Gifts in iMessage, choose the value of the gift card you want to send, and then send your gift using Apple Pay. It’s kind of complicated. I’d almost pay $5 to get out of doing it, but for iPhone-using coffee lovers who also love a deal, it’s probably worth doing. For step-by-step instructions, click here for details and read through carefully.
