Before long, splashing the cash at your local Starbucks might become a thing of the past. 41 percent of the coffee chain’s customers in the U.S. and Canada now pay for their beverages and snacks after loading money onto their Starbuck’s card. With 12 million loyalty members in the U.S. alone, the coffee chain boasts more customer money on its cards than many banks have in deposits.

According to Wall Street Journal data featured in Market Watch, Starbuck’s customers in the U.S. have loaded at least $1.2 billion onto the company’s cards and app. That’s higher than the deposits held by Customers Bank ($780m) and the Green Dot Corporation ($560m). Starbucks still has a long way to go to catch Paypal which boasts a whopping $13 billion on its customer accounts across the world.
