Hey, here’s a little secret about how to get 75 cents off a venti iced coffee at Starbucks.
And you don’t even need a coupon or code or anything!
Here’s the secret:
Order a venti hot coffee and ask for a venti cup full of ice.
I’m serious. That’s all there is to it.
Because the idiocy that is Starbucks charges $1.70 for a venti (hot) coffee, but $2.45 for a venti iced coffee.
The nice barrista to whom I questioningly pointed this out explained that, well, they do use their *Tarrazo* coffee for the iced stuff.
Look, I just want some f-in-coffee over ice, I don’t give a damn if it’s Tarazzo, Folgers, or coffee that passed through a civet’s ass (yes, really, google it). So don’t bilk me 75 cents just to serve my coffee cold.
Now you know. Hot venti coffee, cup of ice. Save 75 cents. Every time.
