Recessionista Swindle of the Day
Warm weather is on its way, and you'll soon be trading your steaming Starbucks latte for a refreshing icy one. But at $4.87 for a grande, you may have to move to Flushing to keep this habit up. You've been funding the Starbucks bigwigs vacations for years, it's time to get a little back. This summer, order an iced grande doppio for $2.16. That's a double shot of espresso over ice with enough room to fill up the rest of the cup with the *free* milk at the counter. It's free! That's what it's there for! You get the exact same drink - for less than half the price. (Sometimes the baristas even add the milk for you ... they're on to us).
