Target Parking Lots Are About to Get Even More Insane with Starbucks Drive-Thrus: Target parking lots are ALWAYS insane, no matter what location you’re at and they got even crazier when Target rolled out its “Drive Up” same-day order pickup service. And now, Target will now allow people to pick-up Starbucks coffee through that service, too.  They’ve already tested it in several locations, and it’ll be available at all locations with an in-store Starbucks by October.  That’s MOST of them.

Here’s how it works:

You order whatever Target stuff you want, and select the Drive Up option.  You get notified when your items are available, and then a prompt comes up asking if you want to add any drinks or food from Starbucks. You pull up to the curbside pick-up space, and they bring your Target stuff AND your “freshly prepared” coffees out to you. So it sounds like you can only ADD the Starbucks to a Target pick-up and can’t just use it to pick up Starbucks.  You also need to arrange everything through the Target app, and pay ahead of time.
