How to get more coffee than you can drink

The company that powers the Starbucks iPhone app is Cashstar, a Global Prepaid Exchange member. Here is an interesting story from The Guardian G2 section about a man getting 1,000 prepaid coffees.

The idea behind Stark’s card is simple: if you don’t have the money to buy a coffee, but you do have a smartphone, you can download his Starbucks card barcode and make a purchase. Once in a while, Stark hopes you’ll give something back – and so far more than 1,000 strangers have ploughed over $11,000 (£6,760) back into the pot.
