Starbucks' Pick of the Week Goes Mobile Through iOS App With 'Angry Birds Star Wars'

Starbucks and Apple have long had a partnership to give away iTunes Store and App Store content to Starbucks customers, with the "Pick of the Week" program using physical cards with redemption codes on the back to allow users to download their free content.

As noted by CNET, Starbucks has now gone mobile with the Pick of the Week program, allowing users to access each week's selection directly from the Starbucks iOS app without needing to type in a lengthy redemption code.
Now, starting tomorrow, Starbucks customers wishing to download the company's curated mobile app and e-book selections can do so with just a click, no card required, from the inbox of the Starbucks mobile application on iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, or by accessing the Starbucks Digital Network, the company's free in-store W-Fi network.

In celebration of the new functionality, Starbucks has partnered to give away Rovio's popular Angry Birds Star Wars for this week's Pick of the Week. The app typically costs $0.99 in the App Store.

For everyone checking and saying they don't see the app...

Starbucks "pick of the weeks" are released on Fridays and pushed via notifications to apps as late as the following Tuesday. You do not have to be in their stores or on their wifi. The last release was April 2nd.

If you read the quote from the CNET article



Looks like you have to be on their network.


You can download it though the app without needing to be on their WiFi. I just got my push notification (varies week-to-week on when I get it) saying it was available to download.

Go to Starbucks.app > Home > Settings > Starbucks Notifications > Pick of the Week ... and toggle that to "On." Then every Tuesday you'll get a push notification when you can download the 'Pick of the Week', which will be found in the Home > "Messages" section.

I checked the starbucks app this morning, still no email to download the app. Unlike the music downloads, do I actually have to be on their wifi network?

Dang people use to post codes here all the time but now you have to use their network? No more goodies for me


You don't. You can use the Starbucks app at home OR be on their network in-store to get the app for free.

I just got a Message on my Starbucks app for the free download. I click download, signed I with my Apple ID, and it downloaded. I did this from my home wifi network.

I would like you guys to re-read the article. Especially the line that says..."starting tomorrow"... For the others, please re-read where it says being on their network to download the app is 1 of the 2 choices as noted by the word "or". :rolleyes:
