I ordered a toffeenut white mocha with and was charged 33 cents more than what I was normally charged when I got the drink a month ago. I know about Starbucks increasing the prices but it said by 5-20 cents, I was charged 33 cents extra. Why?
Slicing through pools of streetlight Answer:
I don’t know where you read the 5-20 cents fact but in my action items on my store computer’s portal, we are only told that prices are going up ‘by a few cents.’ They don’t give us specific amounts. They don’t say, “Our espresso bean farms in Brazil have been affected by weather factors beyond our control and so beans have been limited.”
I am not a corporate suit, I work in “ground zero” if you will, in a store. I don’t know why your coffee went up by the obsessively specific number of 33 cents, and I really can’t understand why you think I would know.
