Using technology at Starbucks… because I can

Starbucks app reload card

Sometimes I don’t realize how ridiculous I am when it comes to using technology.

Like when I’m in the drive-thru at Starbucks and take my phone out to pay for my order with the Starbucks app. And then realize that I don’t have enough money left on my Starbucks card to pay for my drink.

A normal person would probably just take out a credit card and pay for the order. But not me. I figured I had a minute or two before I was up to the window so I hit the reload button in the Starbucks app. Then I took my credit card out, typed in the credit card number and selected $25 for the reload amount. A few more buttons here and there and my Starbucks card balance reflected the new deposit.

Want to Unplug for a Bit?

Hey, at least I still got the points for using my Starbucks card.
