    I have a starbucks passbook pass for my card. I want it to appear on my lock screen so I don't have to find the passbook app every time.

    I have the favourite store set, but the passbook pass would only show on the lock screen for a day or so. And then it would disappear. I would then have to go to the starbucks app, remove the favourite store, readd the favourite store. Super annoying :mad::mad:

    Anyone else have it working?

    I don't think I have a favorite store set and I really don't use it that often, but I think the last time I walked into a Starbucks I had the little Starbucks icon on the lower left corner. I swiped up and was able to pay with Passbook. Maybe check your settings or redownload the app?

    Works, and has worked here. Have several favorites set.

    If I am travelling, and in an unusual starbucks, usually get the little ghostly starbucks icon on bottom left. Swipe it up, and use the Starbucks app itself to scan.

    I'm not referring to the starbucks icon in the bottom left guys. I'm talking about Passbook Passes.

    I use this feature a lot and I haven't noticed any issues. You might want to try deleting the pass you have, setting your favorite stores, and then recreating the pass to see if that helps?

    So there's no issue with yours? Your passbook stays on the lock screen and does not go away? How many favourites stores do you have?

    The pass appears on the lock screen when I'm close to the stores, but doesn't stay once I've left (I also use the Dunkin' Donuts one for a particular location - they only allow a "work" or "home" store designation for their passes) and sometimes get the Walgreens pass on my screen when I'm driving by one on the way to work, so most of my location-aware passes seem to function as expected. I haven't had to re-add it tot get it to work regularly either.

    As far as Starbucks, I have 10 favorite locations (I only go to about two of those regularly, but thought I'd take other area ones I might go to from time to time). Have you tried re-creating your pass? Maybe even try adding another gift card and making that your pass instead?

    Of course, why wouldn't it work? It always shows up on the screen. I have 6 stores saved. You may have the location turned off, enable it from passbook / check notification option.

    I don't even have the sbux app, I only used it to add the code to the passbook. The fav stores stay listed in passbook.

    Can you show me a screenshot of the fav stores list in the pass? I can't see that for mine.

    I find that if WiFi is turned off, my Starbucks Passbook card doesn't show up consistently on my lock screen. This seems to be due to the fact that it takes longer to get a location fix when WiFi is off, so there is an extended delay until the card will show up, and the lock screen has usually timed out and gone back to sleep by then.

    Mine wasn't working either but as soon as I turned on location alerts in privacy, location services, system services it started to work.
