Hygiene carelessness

Staff who collect money or cards by hand also writes on the paper cup and hand it over to next staff which is carelessness about hygiene and spreading infections! The cashier who collect money shouldn't touch the cup or any item hand to customer. A staff dedicated to preparing coffee or food etc. Should only hand to customer

beyond meat breakfast sandwich

Good Afternoon,

My inquiry is not a complaint per say, but more of a dissapointment regarding the new Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwhich.

An employee was passing out samples at the location I was in today. I unfortunately did not recieve one, but decided to try it as it was new.

I must say for all the hype it was not that appealing, and tasted like another breakfast sausage sandwhich. And a price point of $6.72 Canadian it is quite honestly overpiced and not refective of the prices of the other sandwhiches adverstised as breakfast.

I suspect customers will try the sandwhich because of the hype, but at that price point not repurchase. This is not how loyal customers should expect to be treated from their beloved coffee brand. It actually turms me off from returning and buying anything else to be honest.

Thank you for your time.

I ordered 3 drinks at 2:35 pm in the store on 2/1/20 and there was no line but waited for the drinks until 2:55pm . It seemed like the drive thru took priority. I didn't receive the 3 drinks in any time close together. I expressed my concern as I waited for my 3rd drink. I wasn't in a rush but it was very frustrating. A woman also placed a mobile order and was waiting for an extensive amount of time she said .

customer service hotline

I contacted Starbucks per phone, since Emails only get standard, prewritten answers like "just call us"...
I cannot log into my account anymore.
The employee on the hotline told me, he would transfer that technical issue onto the higher department, - they would come back.

Needless to say, nobody ever did...I have a gift card with a balance in my account, and also still some star rewards to use.

I know many of friends and family have the same issues. It seems Starbucks purposely blocks customers - so they can not EARN and USE their stars - in order to save money. We can always spend a lot of money, but they don't want us to earn stars in order to get free drinks or food items.

The internet is full of complaints.
So if I do not get any help asap, I will address that and submit an official complaint to the BBB.
I feel betrayed as many other customers do.
I need to be able to access my account.

Advertised price at the vendor for Coconutmilk Latte was 4.20. At checkout I was charged additional 0.75 for the coconutmilk. Counter worker told me there was no button for drink, so she had to charge me for a latte and add the coconut milk. No attempt was made to sell the drink for correct price. I was told that the sign is wrong.
