How is it possible that no one noticed that Starbucks raised their prices YET AGAIN today, January 4. The prices on their iced beverages went up an average of .20 cents. This is on top of the .05 cent increase made across the board to all drinks last October.
Starbucks never announced this publicly to avoid the harsh criticism they are about to get.
I have since found out that this price increase is strictly for the frapachinio beverage line. As they blamed the fraps for poor summer sales last year, they are raising the prices well ahead of this coming summer, to more than make up for the slow service their baristas constantly provide when these drinks are ordered.
This $.20 increase is unwarranted 3 months after the across the board $.05 increase.
