Wifi at Starbucks

I can't tell you how many people I asked thought wifi at Starbucks was free. It was often their internet "Plan B". Those who actually used it found out it isn't free. With the recent switch at Starbucks from T-Mobile wifi access to AT&T, some things have gotten better.

While you could purchase wifi time, all AT&T wireless customers who have a data plan can access these sites for free. The key word here is "data plan." Now, Starbucks gives you another route to get that free wifi, and that's with their Starbucks card rewards. You might an eligible card in your pocket. But if you access the Starbucks web site and add $5 to that card, you get several "rewards" include free AT&T wifi for 2 hours, each day. Our wishes may have come true, even if only for "Plan B".
