The Best Starbucks Hacks

Here are some of my favorite hacks from Starbucks. Are there any that I’m missing? -Joey

1.  If there’s a long line, order on their app.  Then skip the line, walk up a few minutes later, and ask for your drink.  If it’s not done yet, they’ll usually rush it.

2.  If you don’t like super-hot coffee, order your drink at “kids’ temperature.”  It’ll save your tongue from getting burned.

3.  Ask for your “grande” coffee in a “venti” cup.  It gives you more room for cream.  And if they accidentally overfill it a little bit, boom . . . that’s free coffee.

4. If you’re up for something new, ask what the barista likes, and order that.  They know better than anyone what’s good.  And they probably have a few hacks of their own

5. Try the “Pink Drink”, it’s a Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk and it’s delicious.
