Starbucks to raise prices next week

Starbucks Sign

After two years without any price increases, Starbucks has announced that they will be raising prices on some coffee drinks starting next week. The price increases will not affect all the drinks on the menu – only about 30% of the options – but the individual impact depends a lot on what you order. The price increases will not apply to venti and grande-sized brewed coffees or to Frappuccino drinks, but tall cups of brewed coffee will be going up, in some areas by as much as $.10.

One way to offset the price increases is to use reusable cups – like those that Starbucks sells for $1, as opposed to some pricier models – because they will save you $.10 per drink.
