Bogus coupons circulating through e-mail are causing a headache for Starbucks.

Just to let you know I have looked for Starbucks coupons everywhere but to no avail. I would like to try some of the new drinks but the cost charged is not worth it if I don't like to drink. As much as you charge for a frapp you could afford to give away more coupons. I can go elsewhere and get a frapp in a bigger glass (called a tall) for the same price as your small sz. and just as good. I am partial to Starbucks but your cost is too high for the product. Coupons help, I know businesses are greedy these days and only think of the money but us working class people not making mega bucks can't afford your kind of products. Would you please send me some coupons so I can try some different frapps which otherwise I can't afford.Posted by Janet in Ft Wayne IN on Thu Aug 11, 2005 at 04:06 PM

if you cant afford it dont buy it. i cant afford to eat out at fancy restaurants every night even though i prefer that to my own cooking. So i save it for a treat. Starbucks isnt greedy, they keep prices as high as they are so they can keep treating thier employees well and keep buying quality beans and other things of that nature... and i might add that it is in fact a very specific demographic they are pointing to...Posted by Joy on Tue Aug 29, 2006 at 09:10 PM
I actually work at starbucks and if you want to try a drink and you don't like it. bring it back and they will make you something else at no extra cost. i tell people this everyday. and it does help and most of the time they do like what they ended up getting in the first placePosted by me on Sun Nov 05, 2006 at 07:02 PM
I think the employees at most of the starbucks in the city are some of the sweetest people! True, i'm addicted to their coffee but knowing that i can spend my money anywhere, i return to starbucks for the environment and friendly faces that accomopany my coffee. Just tried the carmel machiatto w/ soy & LOVED it! Get sick of that one? Go for the cinn dolce latte w/ soy! Deliousiousa!!!! i know i spelled that wrong but you catch my drift.Posted by Wendy in Chicago on Sat Mar 24, 2007 at 12:18 AM
Coupons would help it is expense especilly when have 4 children that all ask for a drink you end up spending $20 and for that amount you could feed them.Posted by kathy in texas on Wed Oct 17, 2007 at 05:34 PM
