Starbucks to Add Passbook Support Before September's End

Josh Lowensohn, reporting for CNET:

Starbucks says it will be integrated with Apple's Passbook by the end of the month.

The company announced the news on Twitter this morning, providing no further information about features or carryover for current Starbucks card holders.

A Starbucks spokesperson told CNET that an update to the company's iPhone app will let current Starbucks Card owners add their account to Passbook.

This is great news, as I've been anticipating using Passbook primarily to pay for my coffee. I'm actually kinda surprised Starbucks didn't have it ready for iOS 6's launch.
