I just recently started using my partner card to pay for drinks when I'm not at my own store, and I don't think the partner discount comes off when you swipe to pay like the free mods do with gold cards. Do you have to get the barista to swipe it separately? The only times I've been on register when a partner uses their card, they only use it for the discount (not to pay) so I'm not sure.

The barista at the register still needs to apply the partner discount, then they can use your card first to swipe for your partner numbers, and then swipe again for payment (assuming the card is loaded with money.)
I don't trust other baristas to not suck (because they do), so I always tell them my numbers and then have them swipe the card.
Better safe than hold up the line.
Are you assuming that baristas usually won't know how to apply the discount from swiping the card? Lol.
Nope. You just made several assumptions with that statement, though. o.0
