Starbucks Is Making a Big Change, and You're Not Going to Be Happy About It

You may have even been overcharged for your drink.

Your Frappuccino habit might be getting more expensive soon. Eater reports that Starbucks is about to raise prices, and was forced to admit the change was coming after a computer glitch upped the prices too soon.

Starbucks usually raises its prices during the first week of July. This year, the increase is scheduled for July 12, but some workers apparently got a different memo. The company released a statement saying the "price adjustment was prematurely entered into the point of sale systems in our U.S. company-operated charge." That means your barista may have unknowingly charged you incorrectly, up to 30 cents extra per drink.

It's not a massive price increase, but it's still something you should know about. If you think you were overcharged for your drink because of the error, Starbucks is encouraging you to call customer service at 1-800-782-7282. They have now corrected the error, so you won't see higher prices until July 12.

Last year, Starbucks upped its prices on drinks between five and 20 cents. The company hasn't yet to comment on which drinks will have higher prices, how much higher those prices are going to be, and how many customers were affected by the premature price hike. But start saving your change now to pay for the difference on your next caffeine fix.
