Starbucks Is Raising Prices by as Much as 30 Cents on Certain Drinks
Your guilty pleasure of iced coffees and frappuccinos are going to get at tad more expensive pretty soon. According to Eater, the ever-so-famous coffee chain will be raising their prices during the first week of July.
Per a release on Starbucks website, they write:
“On July 12, Starbucks is planning a small price increase on select beverages. Unfortunately, that price adjustment was prematurely entered into the point of sale systems in our U.S. company-operated stores. As a result, some customers were charged incorrectly. The maximum any customer could have been overcharged is 30 cents per beverage.”
It’s not such a massive increase that you will have to cut down on the elixir of life, but we’re just letting you know ahead of time. Now you can’t blame that cute barista for charging you extra, darn! Price increases are said to be that of 30 cents.
Last year, Starbucks increased their prices by 5-20 cents, depending on the drink that you ordered.
