Hope it gets fixed...
Kaelan's mommy on 5/24/2018
This app was fantastic before the most recent update... Because it actually WORKED before the update. Now I can't even order at any of the 12 Starbuck that are actually in my area. It is locked on to one store 45 min away. I can find other stores under the stores tab and have favorited only the store closest to me. When I go to order it shows only this one store that is no where near me. I've deleted and reinstalled the app and everything. Hope this gets fixed. I love my mobile ordering.
Used to be 5 star until one small change.
Krag6 on 5/24/2018
With the new version the SMALLEST amount to reload your starbucks card went from $10 to $25. For me that takes away reloading through the app and reduces mobile ordering because now I have to go inside to reload. Not cool Starbucks...Put it back to $10.
blue0023 on 5/24/2018
Need more cashiers when there 3 or more people waiting.

The only app that I’ve ever used losses your funds.
25 dollar reload minimum?
annoyed87635282 on 5/24/2018
Long time user, and long time fan, but it seems with the most recent update the lowest reload amount you can select is $25. Super lame, I know I’m going to spend the money eventually, but come on...
Bring back the $10 reload option.
Ridley2000 on 5/24/2018
The last update removed the $10 reload option☹️. I like that option for my kids cards because they often don’t have $25 but want to buy Starbucks.
Minimum Reload is Too High
Cdthedude on 5/24/2018
The minimum reload amount on the latest update is $25, which is way too high. My wife and I have a $20/month shared coffee budget, so we each used to reload our cards $10/month. Now we can’t do that, which is ridiculous. Why on earth did you do this? Please change it back. Until then I will not be giving you any further service.
$25 reload only 😡
Cknight2 on 5/24/2018
I don’t drink Starbucks every day . I may drink it once a week if that. Only having the option to drop $25 a pop dedicated just to Starbucks is just plain stupid. I know y’all need to make money, but this inconvenience will drive me away from using this app all together. I have the choice of two great coffee spot within walking distance to my work and the other one is way faster than Starbucks. I use the order ahead because it’s coffee on demand. Please do right by your customers and allow us to reload $5, $10, etc. We shouldn’t be forced to load more money than we plan on spending on a regular basis. I have been a loyal customer and app user for as long as I can remember. Please get back to work fixing this ASAP. ☕️
Why Can’t I Add Less Than $25 When Processing An Order
Joseph From NC on 5/24/2018
So I just completed my order and went to pay. I did not have enough on my card, so I went to add $10 as usual and your lowest in-order amount I can now add is $25. You used to have $10 and $15 options. Why did you do this annoying UX change. I still added ONLY $10. My remedy was marking all my items as favorites, deleting the order, reloading through the Pay page, going back to the Order page, hitting the favorites tab, quickly adding my previous requests and processing my request. So you did not keep me from doing what I wanted to do. Your changes made for a bad experience. I’ll still continue this annoying work-around, but if you take away my ability to add $10 and $15 through Pay from the home page, I’ll use your app a whole lot less. If you’re ultimately trying to encourage users like me to use the app less, keep up the good work. And another thing, you took away the option to have Chocolate Chip cookies warmed in the app. Why on earth would you do that, especially when you’ve changed cookies again to a denser cookie that requires warming to be tasty? The way I solve the problem is to stop your baristas from serving other customers to warm my cookie. Again, if that’s the result you’re hoping to get from people who want order warm cookies through the app, keep up the good work. Your app used to makes good UX sense, but these changes are annoying and seem very petty.
Way too many confirmation screens
SovietMoustache on 5/24/2018
People order their coffee here for convenience. Why do I go through like 4000 confirmation screens every time I place the same favorited plain black coffee from the same place every day?
No more $10 reload
sls0994 on 5/24/2018
Looks like I’ll be deleting the app and taking my business to Dunkin’ Donuts, because there’s no way I’m going to reload $25 each time. Shame, because I love Starbucks and the ease and convenience of mobile ordering, but not with this change.
Greedy Change On Reload Options
PMac18 on 5/24/2018
The most recent app update they “quietly” removed the lower tier options for reloading your Starbucks card. You now have to load a MINIMUM of $25. I’m all set with them. Will be done going to Starbucks until they stop with the greed. So long!
Silent overcharge
NebT on 5/24/2018
The app works fine; but lately there has been a silent overcharge. The minimum amount one can reload on Apple Pay has increased from $10 to $25. As a customer, I would like the ability to reload the amount I want.
Reload options
Griselda Chacon on 5/24/2018
It is terrible that the new update removed the 10/20 dollar reload options ! I guess that might help with my consumption! Good thing Dunkin’ Donuts still has that option for the convenience of the customer
Greed ruined this app
Brian IPhone User on 5/24/2018
Until today you could add cash in amounts as low as $10. Now with the latest update the minimum is $25. Starbucks’ greed knows no bounds I guess. Won’t be using this app anymore. 🤬👎
So slow
Tenzin Nyingje on 5/24/2018
This app used to be good, because even though it was extremely slow, you could order drinks ahead of time. Now they removed the option to reload anything less than $25 on your card. The app is slow, you can only reload a high amount, and it takes like 10 steps to place an order. I’ll start going in the store again like I used to.
tipping needs inprovement on 5/24/2018
I think it’s unfair that we as customers are capped on our tipping. We should be able to have an option to custom tip whatever we want. Starbucks has the best baristas and make your day they should be rewarded. I am also disappointed that at least 50% of time the option to tip doesn’t even show up after I pay. I WANT to tip these awesome baristas but your app doesn’t allow for generosity.
Greedy company--user beware!
Jerry du Jour on 5/24/2018
Newest version of app changes minimum card reload amount to $25 (previously $10). User beware!
Zippymc on 5/24/2018
I loved this app and I LOVE being able to order ahead of time. I am however disappointed in the latest update where they took away the $10 and $15 reload option. I don’t want to always reload with $25 (the lowest denomination in which you can reload). Please bring back the other two options.
My Starbucks isn’t on the app
ErinPW on 5/24/2018
So why would i want this app? Delete.
Add back $10 reload option!
faillaceface on 5/24/2018
Lowest reload amount now is $25? Who’s genius idea was that 😑
You broke it
Navyneutron235 on 5/24/2018
Whatever you did, it crashes now like a windows machine... you are actually losing money because I will but my coffee elsewhere until this is fixed
So slow
Keoni.D. on 5/23/2018
The app loads so unbelievably slow after recent updates. I feel like I have to fire it up an hour or two in advance to order or pay. It was good before. Now it’s just a frustrating screen that shows you the buttons and doesn’t register your press.
Can’t find where to enter codes in whatsoever
Watergirl123 on 5/23/2018
This app used to be really user friendly and for the most part it is, but no where on the app am I finding a spot where I can enter a code from purchasing the home brew coffee products. It used to be right on the home page and I’ve dug through the settings, all the different tabs pretty much every where I can’t find it anywhere. I’m sick of having to go to the desktop website to have to enter my codes every time because you should be able to from the app like you can do everything else. Annoying and 100% discourages me from using app. Fix it.
User friendly
Tlau34 on 5/23/2018
I love my app super user-friendly almost has everything you need. I am the customer that customizes their drinks and for my macchiato I do not have a option on the app to make it upside down. For my strawberry açai I do not have that option to add lemonade which was an option before but was taken down for whatever reason. This is a bummer, so that means I have to wait in line instead of a mobile order where I could be in and out. Add these features please!!
Great job
Lizz909 on 5/23/2018
Great customer service
kiggjidnitgjwa on 5/23/2018
would love the option to add only $5, sometimes i don’t want to add a full $10 but am only a dollar or so short on my order
Card Reload BS!
RevenClaw on 5/23/2018
Why can I no longer reload my card with less than $25, in this App?! Unacceptable!!
Reload options
Loverbug221 on 5/23/2018
Where is the $10, $15, $20 option for reloading??? It’s now only $25 and up and I sometimes I don’t want to put in $25 right away!!!
Great addition to my life
Unogal on 5/23/2018
I love how convenient and easy mobile ordering is! I probably use it more often than I should!!! The only thing I wish they would add is to let you know how your changes affect the nutrition facts! It would be so cool to see how much sugar I’m cutting out by switching to almond milk, etc...
Annoying change to reload settings with recent update
Kobes Family on 5/23/2018
Hate recent change Starbucks made to the card reload option. Previously, this app auto remember the previous reload option selected, whether it was $10, $20, whatever. Now the app resets to $25 after each and every reload. I only add $10 at a time. I did a quick reload, in a hurry, and reloaded with $25. Very annoyed. Definitely intentional change by the company.
$10 reload option
Anthonywasherelol on 5/23/2018
They took away the $10 reload option so I’m deleting the app lol.
Can’t tip
kc19483 on 5/23/2018
This has been going on for a month. I can’t review my history or tip. Now I can’t reload my card without it being lower than $50! I go to the same two Starbucks and like to tip them! >:(
Reload on app
mmamink on 5/23/2018
You just lost a lot of money upping you reload to $25 most people don’t want to load 25 just to get a coffee.
maddy8294728 on 5/23/2018
App keeps crashing, and the option to reload $10 was taken away. I don’t want to be forced to reload my card $25 at a time when I just want to grab a quick coffee in the morning. Really disappointing. Won’t be using going forward
what happened to $10 reload option???
jerbl on 5/23/2018
they removed the ability to load $10 on your the only option is $25?? that is absurd and very elitist. bring back the $10 reload option please.
$25 reload?!
whaddupmia on 5/23/2018
Soooo, we can only reload our cards with a minimum $25 now? Come on Starbucks. I only want a drink and a bagel. I don’t want the extra $15 just sitting on my Starbucks card! I don’t use it often enough to have money just sitting around. Get your crap together!!!
Why not add star codes
tsnow50 on 5/23/2018
It is ridiculous that you can not enter star codes on the app.
Not giving a $25 load
Shrimpya on 5/23/2018
So you’re telling me if I want to purchase a breakfast item for $3.95 or a coffee for $2.45 that I need to load $25? Genius move, thanks for making me not want to use this app anymore.
No more $10 reload
spwalker on 5/23/2018
For the past week or so, the app has been defaulting to $25 and I’d have to, annoyingly, select $10. This morning I tried to reload and $10 is no longer an option, just 25. Is Starbucks experiencing a cash flow problem that they’re trying to resolve by forcing their customers to reload more than they want to?
jwvarney on 5/23/2018
With the latest update it takes away 50 cents every time I open it. Seems refills are no longer free to gold members either
Not built for you
Fatinspanish on 5/23/2018
This app assumes you’re in a car driving and craps out if GPS can’t locate the nearest store. You can’t even override it to choose a favorite or even ANY store. It’s just useless at that point. Like tens of millions of Americans, I live in an urban setting and ride public transportation to work. Your app doesn’t work for us...which is kinda ironic (read the book “Nudge” geniuses).
Tipping is no longer an option?
want to tip on 5/23/2018
Tipping is no longer an option?
Mostly great
honeyhoney510 on 5/22/2018
It usually functions perfectly and I love how easy it is to pay. However it won’t show me any of my recent transactions so I can’t tip which is annoying
Really great app - needs tipping
NickyTheWrench on 5/22/2018
This app is truly awesome! But how do I tip my barista when I pay? Add that feature and you get five stars! Edit: Customer Service responded quickly to tell me how to do it in the app! 5 Stars it is!
Studiezalot on 5/22/2018
There is nothing under the history feed even though I regularly purchase at Starbucks. Annoying.
App crashes
BriannaB17 on 5/22/2018
The app doesn’t even open for more than 3 seconds before shutting down. Not able to use it at all
Scan eGift Cards
XinhDragon on 5/22/2018
Good app, please add: 1) scan e-gift cards feature, lots of people purchase e-gift online and get egift cards now for Christmas, BD, etc. would be nice not to have to enter 16 digits card + 8 digits code every time :( 2) One click re-order on fav drink, I usually drink the same thing every at the same local store. Right now taking 4-5 clicks to re-order is Kinda annoying
Hawaii Skydiver on 5/22/2018
Horrible app. Hard to navigate. Keeps trying to make me order from a Starbucks extremely far from me. Today it won and I can’t go get my order.
$25 reload
Mekana07 on 5/22/2018
It won’t let me reload $10 anymore only $25... super annoying I won’t be using anymore.
