**Check out our latest update with support for the Echo Show! And remember, you can always switch to another order in your order history just by saying "switch my order" once you've opened the skill.
We're making it even simpler to get on with your day. Just login with your Starbucks account and choose your preferred store and usual order. Then ask Alexa to get your Usual started for you.
Use the Starbucks Reorder skill to: – Reorder your Usual from one of the last 10 stores you’ve ordered from – Check your primary Starbucks Card balance – Switch between your last 5 previous orders
To enable the Starbucks Reorder skill, you'll need to have previously placed a mobile order with the Starbucks® app for iPhone® or Android™. Your Starbucks order will be minutes away when you say "Alexa, tell Starbucks to start my usual order."
And remember, if you need to switch the user profile you use with Alexa, say “Alexa, switch profile” to toggle between Amazon accounts.

Works fine. I would like to see the ability to place the order with Alexa but then tell Alexa to delay placing the order until _ time. I live 15 to 20min from a Starbucks so if I place an order, it may have been ready and sitting at Starbucks for 10 min or so before I even get there. It would be awesome if I could get Alexa to delay placing the order until say 10min later from the time I ask it.
I don't even have an Amazon Echo or anything like that. Just a Fire TV Stick with Alexa Remote. Really didn't expect all the features on that type of device but turns out it doesn't matter what device you have so long as it connects to Amazon's servers. I think it's cool I can check my balance and even set my order before heading out the door. One thing is this functionality won't take new orders but just the most previous one you got through the Starbucks app. It doesn't bother me bc all I get in the mornings are hot chocolate, but if you're a customer that wants to try something new this skill won't help. That's my only beef though, and even though it doesn't affect me today or tomorrow I rated one less star bc I might want to order for a whole crew some day and this won't help. It's a cool convenience anyhow
This skill does exactly what it claims to do, that is allow you to "reorder" your favorite/preferred order. Although we all would like Alexa to be our " virtual barista" I'm sure that is something to look forward in the future. Voice recognition is difficult to get high high satisfaction with and with Starbucks' complex menu, it will take a bit more time to get a high satisfaction experience. In the mean time, thus skill is focused on users that may want to occasionally reorder their "usual" and it works as described. The skill is a bit chatty but does try to represent the personal touch of Starbucks. My opinion is that this skill is a great "foundation" and I look to and expect Starbucks to build on this skill with new experiences over time.
A little tricky figuring how to get this up and running on Alexa.First download mobile app.Then using mobile app first place an online order.After your first order placed and picked up.Say to Alexa open Starbucks app.She will respond by say sending you a link to starbucks.Once that is said then you can enable app.On alexa skills and follow the prompts .And youre set to go.
The app does what it says. Here is where it can be improved:
1) Have Alexa ask you which store you'd like to place the order at. 2) Have Alexa understand what drink you want to order, or break it down by category, then drink. Shouldn't need to have a previous order.
Out of all of the Echo apps...I use this one the most! I love it! I set everything up through the Alexa app, linked my Starbucks card and Echo does the rest. I order the same thing every day (I'm a creature of habit) and I just tell Echo to tell Starbucks to get my order ready, she repeats my order and pre-chosen location, payment information and cost. I confirm the order and I am on my way! When I get to the Starbucks location, my order is ready and out the door I go. It is so easy. However, you have to keep in mind that in order for this app to work for you...you must do a little work for it. That means that you must put in your favorite store and link your Starbucks card to it. It took 2 minutes to do. I get my Starbucks reward stars and have had no issues. The only thing I would add to the app is the ability to use my free rewards through the app as payment.
