    Not sure where you see Apple Watch support, unless you got your hands on an un-released version of the app. Also, it’s missing Passbook support, which is crucial.

    If my math is correct, you’d need to buy roughly 33 coffees before you could get anything free. And that’s if you only ever buy coffees there…..

      IMHO McD coffee tastes better, and you get a free one every 7 that you bought

      For the regular coffee many may not like (I personally like it). But when it comes to latte, mocha, espresso or any other specialty drinks they do a great job at it.
      I personally like their latte. Except for some small (local) coffee shops who do it really well, I think second cup latte betters other big franchises (including Starbucks).

      Agreed, it’s not worth the effort of loading the app and scanning it just to save roughly 5 cents each time (when you break down the value per cup).

    No love for android wear?

  • If only they had coffee that I liked.

  • It’s too bad that Windows Phone, or even BlackBerry, isn’t supported. Looks like it will be a plastic card for those with those phones.

      Well, on BlackBerry, you could probably just install the android app and be good to go. I use the Starbucks android app all the time on my BB phones. On Windows though you are still out of luck.

      But I do prefer when a shop supports more than just Android and iOS. A local coffee chain in Ottawa (Bridgehead) has BB10, Android, iOS, and Windows. If they can do it, why not a larger company like Second Cup?

      I already have the Android version loaded on my BlackBerry Passport and my Z10. Works like a charm.

      How where you able to get the apk file? I’m having the hardest time finding it.

  • Lulzon

    They now have as many apps as they do locations in my city…

    Think I’ll stick with $tarbucks, one free every 12 (and usually faster with promos).

  • jack

    Sorry not for me, I do like their coffee but, Starbucks small coffee is $2 and after 12 coffees I get a free one so that’s $24 bucks, Second cup its $50 bucks or 500 points to get a free coffee ? maybe next time

      The difference is you have to go 30 times before you can qualify for the right to earn free coffee. It’s great when you have it but it’s still a lot of upfront investment. I’m more interested in the tailored surprises they’re speaking of

    Too bad BNOTIONS didn’t off the APK’s for blackberry and Amazon users so it would work on these devices as well.
