Starbucks and iTunes: Genius!

on 30 August 2011

So, this is something that I thought everyone knew about, but since I still answer questions about it every shift and they are expanding the program of late, let’s talk technology and coffee.

A few years ago, Starbucks and Apple formed an entertainment partnership. Honestly, it was a match made in heaven. Coffee and free music! What could go wrong? The answer: nothing. As time has gone on, they’ve done weekly picks, daily picks, special collections (this summer we were handing out cards for a free Frappuccino mix with 10 songs on it! And nine of them were awesome), and so on.

Every Tuesday your local Starbucks will put out a stack of small, grey, business-card looking things. Those are your key to musical happiness; on the front it tells you what you are getting, and on the back is your redemption key and download instructions. It is super simple, super easy, and totally wonderful.

Recently, Starbucks and iTunes expanded this from just music to apps as well! If you’re anything like me, ,you love a good free app. And that is what your Starbucks put out today: a game app. So run in, have fun, enjoy your coffee, grab a card, and happy downloading!

This week's pick!
