Ditch the Gift Cards, Pay with Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts Apps

We were sitting at a bar last weekend, when my friend Dave of Barton’s Bites whipped out his money clip and I saw several coffee gift cards. I immediately asked Dave – don’t you know you can pay with Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts apps? He was amazed that he didn’t need to lug these cards around.
