I'm gonna skip the backstory and cut straight to the chase. Today, on Aug, 23rd, approx. 3:10pm, I ordered an ice water with flavor (peppermint) like I have done before and in many other coffee shops (I'm not a cheapscape, just notoriously broke. Don't you dare judge!) I have always been charged for the flavor (55 cents) Now all of a sudden, without any announcement, warning or hint what so ever, a (free) ice water with flavor (55 cents) is now charged as an iced tea! According to the Barista, they have just received a notification to charge it that way. This is clearly a blatant ripoff on behalf of Starbacks. Do they even think about the customers they will lose before they enforce such a b*******?? Ok, I understand if some stores charce 10 cents for a plastic cup. I reluctantly looked past the fact that they put a name to a shot of espresso topped whip cream and charged triple it's value, but this... this takes the cake! As long as this scam goes on, I feel compelled to avoid any starbucks in town and take my business elsewhere. I did end up paying for the flavor, but those kind of stunts are a major, if not the main reason why their customers jump the ship. An espresso shot topped with whip cream should be charged as that. A free ice water with 55 cents of flavor should be charged for the flavor and NOTHING else!! Until this is abolished, I'm done with SCAMBUCKS!
