Starbucks & Lady Gaga Team With QR Codes

Starbucks is helping Lady Gaga promote her new album by inviting customers to go on a 2-week digital scavenger hunt. "SRCH by Starbucks featuring Lady Gaga", as the initiative is called, will start with an in-store QR code scan on May 18th beginning at 10am PST. Gaga fans can scan QR codes on Starbucks banners and other materials to receive clues about the puzzle. They will then be instructed to decode messages from the SRCH blog and follow the hunt. Starbucks isn't new to using QR codes as they dabbled using them for mobile payments last year. Also, Starbucks has recently updated their myStarbucks app to scan QR codes for iPhone!! This looks like a pretty cool. Below is a short video and the QR Code.
