Mobile BarCodes for Starbucks Gift Card iPhone App

When the gift cards are accessed on the phone, a mobile 2D bar code is displayed on the screen. Once the bar code appears, the cashier simply scans the barcode and the funds are deducted from the gift card to complete the transaction. iPhone users can also add funds to the gift card directly from their phone using a credit card and this iPhone application. For now, this form of mobile payment can only be used at Starbucks cafes that are located within Target stores and it is only available at 1,002 Target locations.

This is a great thing unless you print plastic cards. The iPhone could make all plastic cards obsolete some day.
