Starbucks’ margins: an update

If you’re strapped for cash, grab yourself a Short cup, wait for someone in line to order your drink of choice in anything but Venti (Tall, let’s say), offer them £1 to upgrade to a Venti, and get them to fill your eight ounce cup. They get their Tall for £1.55 instead of £2.05 and you get your short Short for £1 instead of £1.80.

    I know I haven’t said this in a while – but time to up that dose again 🙂

    or just not bother buying overpriced coffee whilst being forced to use words like ‘Tall’ ‘Short’ or god forbid, ‘Venti’.

    Keep the tips coming. We’ll all need them soon enough.

    Which is why no coffee lover goes to S-bucks for their joy.
