Email platform Microsoft Outlook has recently partnered with coffee chain Starbucks to allow consumers to electronically send Starbucks gift cards to one another and set up meetings at a nearby location. The extension taps into Starbucks locations often being used as meet up spaces by allowing consumers the advantage of setting up the meeting at one of the locations and sending over money to cover the costs.

The collaboration embeds a Starbucks add-on feature directly into the Microsoft Outlook interface -- which many consumers use for electronic work communication. The feature is located in a button on the right hand corner and allows consumers to select the 'Let's Meet at Starbucks' feature to share what location to connect at as well as send along a gift card for beverage and snack purchases.
