Starbucks can't ring up sales, gives away coffee

Starbucks stores in Chicago and around the country ended up giving away coffee and other drinks to many customers Friday night.

The coffee shop chain decided to do that after a computer glitch made it impossible to ring up sales or take credit cards.

Some stores closed, while others that stayed open saw a lot of traffic and word spread on social media about free coffee.
