Apple offers Starbucks customers a free weekly download (including Coldplay)
Apple offers Starbucks customers a free weekly download
The offer, which launches today and is called ‘Pick of the Week’, allows all Starbucks UK customers access to a free download on iTunes.
The partnership has been live in the US since 2006 and comes a week after Starbucks announced free WiFi is now available in all its UK stores without the need to register.
The first song to be offered for free is James Morrison’s latest track, My Dreams and to mark the launch of the service, there will also be a free iBook, Limitless by Alan Glynn, available too.
Future artists will include Coldplay, Tony Bennett and The Kooks.
When anyone buys a product in one of Starbucks’s 700 UK stores, they will be handed a ‘Pick of the Week’ download card. Once the cards are distributed, customers will have up to 60 days from the date they are available to redeem the complimentary offering on iTunes.
Brian Waring, vice president of marketing and category for Starbucks UK and Ireland, said: “Digital offers are very important to us and making WiFi freely available across our stores is the foundation for many other plans we have moving forward…Content partnerships are key and we also have an extremely exciting digital programme ahead for 2012.”
What would the coffeehouse be without great music?
Well it wouldn’t be Starbucks, for one thing. We’re just as passionate about music as we are about coffee. That’s why we handpick all the tunes you hear in our stores. Helping people discover their next favourite artist or recording is one of our favourite things to do.
Now you can help yourself to a free download on iTunes every Monday.
Brighten your day and discover your next favourite artist or author with a free weekly download on iTunes. This could be anything from a new track by a popular rock band, a great release from and up and coming folk artist or even an e-book by a bestselling author.
Drop by your local Starbucks for the new Pick of the Week card, you’ll find them at the end of the bar where the drinks are served. Simply follow the instructions on the back of the card to get your free download.
You can check back at starbucks.co.uk each week to discover what the latest Pick of the Week download is.

it means everything and it means nothing to everybody and nobody - Guy Berryman
Phil, who is our fifth member, he doesnít play an instrument but he plays the mobile phone and the laptop computer - Will Champion
a negative capability is the ability within yourself to accept that things go up and down and you can't always control it and they can't always be up but they won't always be down - Chris Martin
itís a good noisy crowd that sing through the show at the Ahoy - none more so than when the band are on the B-Stage and the cheer for Will during Us Against The World is so huge that the song grinds to a halt amidst disbelieving giggles on stage - Roadie #42
