Starting today, Starbucks Rewards members can pay as they go and still earn Stars through the Starbucks app. Before today, Starbucks Rewards members were required to pre-load their Starbucks Card. Now, at company-operated stores across Canada, Starbucks Rewards members can scan their app and then pay with cash, credit/debit cards, or select mobile wallets and earn Stars toward free items! Members can also save these payment methods directly in the Starbucks app to earn stars when paying.
