Gone are the days of waiting anxiously in the morning Starbucks line, coming to terms with the fact that you will once again be late to work. Starbucks has announced that today it will start taking pick-up orders nationwide via its mobile app, which already allows you to pay at the counter and enroll in the loyalty program for freebies. To use the service, simply load cash into your account, check off which drink and add-ins you want from the fully listed menu and then select which Starbucks location you want to pick up from. Drinks are made as soon as the orders are placed, so plan accordingly if you want the beverage to be hot by the time you arrive.
The only downside? The baristas receive the orders on a printed ticket, so you won't get a laugh out of your misspelled name anymore.
