Starbucks dating policy

31 Jan

Some regular customers of a Starbucks in Saffron Wadlen, Essex, shop were shocked to learn as much as £150 was taken from their accounts in one go for purchases dating back as far as February.

These delayed payments have caused havoc with customers' banking, and some have even been charged for falling into their overdrafts and missing direct debit payments.

I contacted Starbucks and they offered me some free drink vouchers, which I politely declined.“A direct debit payment, which comes out of the same account, also bounced and I got charged for that as well.“I do check my balance quite regularly, but I can't say I look through my statements that closely, so I had no idea that they hadn't been charging me for coffee since March.“We expected fine dining, bars and nightclubs to rank much higher, but clearly people want to meet in a relaxed environment."It's not the first time singles have, well, singled out coffee shops as a perfect first date spot.According to a 2013 article, 81 percent of singles said coffeehouses were foolproof first date spots.
