It's not that big of a deal to me. I only get Starbucks on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays....BUT even if I went every morning it would only be an additional $2.79 a month. If you're already forking out the $3-5 it costs per drink, $0.09 cents is not huge.

I'm still going every day. I don't care that my drink costs like 3.80 something now.

mwmsjuly, you're right. one of the best places to work as far as benefits and perks go. and i literally go to starbucks once, maybe twice a day.. yes, i am a sucker, but as far as the price boost goes, if the price of milk goes up, so does the price of things that include milk. people are trying to increase annual profits, and they can't do that if they are paying more for supplies without adjusting their price. is the price ridiculous? yes, but people pay it. we have starbucks literally across the street from each other and they always have a line. the ceo who treats the employees well, and figures out how to increase profits despite paying .09 more for a drink is a great business man.

At least they give their employees, even part-time, benefits. I try to remember that as I fork over absurd amounts of dough for my beloved coffee (which I make at home AND buy at the coffee shop...) and try not to groan at my addiction.

TIP: If you want to save, get a smaller cup. For example, they sell a sixe "short" but don't advertise it. It's a little smaller then a tall but cheaper :)

whoa, schaianne! $4 for milk? i think my grocery store is still charging $2-something. I can't even imagine!

Oh no....oh wait! I don't get my coffee from them. Starbucks coffee always tastes bitter and too strong as if it's been overroasted.

Everything is rising due to gas prices. My local grocery store is now charging about $4.25 for a gallon of milk (!!! that's a $.40 increase!!!) ... this keeps up and this country will see the worst depression it's seen in a LONG time. I bought an espresso machine so I can have my beloved mochas at home now.

LAME. They pay for everything with one venti plain coffee. another cheapie tip (we do this at the cafe i work at, which sells starbucks, therefore same prices [albeit, we haven't raised ours in three years...]): if you like lattes, ask for a doppio (two plain shots) or solo macchiato (one shot) with syrup (if you want), hot or over ice. Then use the condiment bar milk. It won't be hot, so i reccomend an iced doppio/solo.

Jerry Seinfeld calls Starbucks "Fourbucks". They have now reached that amount for my double tall, b@stards.

a few tips to lower your $ - if you're into chai tea latte's get a non-fat steamer with chai (same thing, and a buck cheaper) - if you're into non-fat lattes order an iced grande americano in a veinti cup, add dairy and instead of $3.79 it's $2.70

It's okay. It's up to us to balance out our spendings. Making coffee at home can be fun too.

Wow, that's kinda a lot of price raising in less than a year, guess they gotta pay for those free celebrity drinks somehow :(
