Sick of plonking yourself down in your favourite coffee chain only to find you need to stump up for the Wi–Fi? Well a new deal between Starbucks and BT Openzone means that such online disasters are over. Read on and we’ll tell you just how this new hook up works.
To get stuck into free Wi–Fi at Starbucks, you’ll need to sign on the dotted line for a Starbucks Reward card. Once you’ve got involved with the coffee king’s latest wheeze, you’ll be able to log on and check your emails while mainlining triple–shot Americanos.
Before playing nice with Outlook, Facebook or Twitter, load your Starbucks reward card up with £5 of credit and register it at the Starbucks website. If you’ve already got a reward card, you’re good to go.
If you’re packing an iPhone, you can already get involved with BT Openzones in Starbucks. But this is great if you don’t tote Apple’s blower and happen to find yourself in one of the 650 Wo–Fi enabled coffee houses in the UK and Ireland.
