If you are a fan of Starbucks coffee and want to be able to enjoy their brew without spending the cash in your wallet, then you should get a Starbucks Card. No more scrounging in your pocket for change and finding yourself short while standing at the register. You will be able to get your favorite drink without cash in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Thailand.
The concept was first launched in the US in 2001. A 100 million of these cards have already been activated. Any customer who gets a card can check their balance online. They will also be able to view their most recent transactions and receive information on new products through the online service.
If you feel that cashless is the way to go, check out the Starbucks Card. At least you’ll be able to order a Frappuccino in Thailand even if you don’t speak the language and have no money in your wallet.
