Texting a Starbucks Gift Card is About to be as Easy as Sending an Emoji

 Via Cosmo - Starting in April, anyone with an iPhone and Apple Pay can use iMessage to send and receive Starbucks gift cards.

A spokesperson for the coffee chain tells Cosmopolitan.com that receivers can redeem the gift cards by showing the text or by adding it directly to their Starbucks app. Although the details behind the technology are still sketchy, it sounds as easy as sending and receiving an emoji.

As GrubStreet points out, one in six Americans get Starbucks gift cards during the holidays, while one in three Starbucks customers use the app — and it's safe to expect even more gift cards for lattes and frappes starting next month.

How crazy is that?!

Oh, technology!
