Starbucks begins selling Square card readers at 7,000 coffee shops


It wasn't too much of a surprise to see Starbucks begin accepting Square payments at many of its coffee shops last year, but the company's latest expansion of that partnership is a bit more unexpected. It's announced today that it has started selling Square card readers at some 7,000 locations across the US, letting customers pick up a means to accept credit card payments along with their beverage of choice. That's only the latest retail deal for Square following partnerships with Apple, Walmart, Best Buy and others, and as with those the readers themselves are essentially free -- you pay $10 up front, but get a $10 credit that you can redeem after you activate your account.
