App developer Jonathan Stark has posted the barcode to his Starbucks coffee card online so that anyone can get free coffee using his account. The card has a Twitter account, which tweets when the card is used or its balance is depleted (a frequent occurrence). Stark has also given instructions on how generous types can replenish the card’s funds online–a spin on the “take-a-penny, leave-a-penny” dish at a convenience store.
Stark notes in his write-up that he is not in any way at all affiliated with Starbucks.
UPDATE: Jonathan provides further clarification that he is not associated with Starbucks.
