With an election coming up, I would like to know where the candidates stand on this issue.

I am pretty sure that soy at the bar (ie you add it to your own hot or cold coffee) will stay free, and the new change (no free soy in your latte etc) doesn't go into effect until 10.16, so your public could still get to see you, just with a different beverage, perhaps?


They don't have soy at the bar! Or maybe just not at the one I go to. Or maybe the baristas hate me and deny me free soy because I ask about the ETA on my bagel and that's obnoxious. Which I know, but I can't stop myself.

wait . . . so if you get your coffee and then ask them to give you the soymilk (i've never been in a starbucks that left it out), they will make you give them additional money? or will they flat-out refuse to hand you the carton? this is blowing my mind.

They may as well, since none of them seem to like to talk about the real issues. At least this one directly impacts me now.

If we had Kucinich, none of this would happen!

None of the Starbucks I've been to have soy on the bar. If you ask for a "splash" of it in your coffee they'll give you the carton. If you make the mistake of NOT telling them you just want a little cold soy in your coffee and just ask for coffee with soy they'll charge you $5 for a forking "misto". Lame.

Maybe that's what they thought I wanted. Can they make this a little clearer? I would like the free amount of soy, not the amount that costs 50 cents please.

In our area (NJ/NY), cold soy is free if you are at a regular starbucks (not the special ones in B&N for example that don't take Sbucks cards). I just ask for soy at the bar, they yell "Soy at the Bar!" And then the person who made my coffee gives me a carton of soymilk and I add as much as I want. And because I am cheap and like my ice-coffee very milky, I drink a bunch of coffee and keep topping it up with free soymilk, until people start to stare at me and then I leave.

Your region may be different, and/or your Sbux may be one of the ones that isn't a standard franchise and doesn't adhere to the general corporate rules.

Totally how the dinos died out. I feel feverish already.

I avoided the B&N starbucks for years bc they charged for soy. But I am willing to pay 60 cents to the place that lets Malka climb into their lego containers... And ERMAGERD the puppets! Its like a 60 cent playground with awesome toys.

I never got a card.

I just cold brew coffee at home so I can oversugar my own drinks and it probably costs me like, $1 a drink. Also you can add coffee to green smoothies and then your mid-morning poop will practically FLY out of your butt.

There's also a Seattle's Best in that mall - we should try that next time and see what their deal is. I have no problem letting Malka climb on B&N's stuff anyway - I spend enough money there.

I used to go to B&N for coffee and a place to write all the time. More spacious than SBux.

I make mine with TJ's instant and its so good. But I kind of want to make MBM's because I want my poop to fly out my butt like winged monkeys or pterodactyls..

Then add a few shots to your green smoothie. Both of these things make me poop so by their powers combined, I am Captain Planet (of pooping).

I got a starbucks card because it peas me off paying extra for soy but when I registered it, it looks like I have to buy like 50 drinks before I start getting soy for free. forkers.

I've noticed that it's not really consistent, but I've totally been charged extra for just a little splash of soy.

I am learning so much about the policies of the various Starbuces with regard to soy milk in this thread. Thank you for once again empowering my choices, the PPK.

I e-mailed Starbucks once to complain about Target making you have a gold card before they'd give you free soy and syrup, and was basically told that the "licensed" locations that use a point-of-sale from another store (i.e. Target, B&N) can do whatever the heck they want when it comes to the rewards.

can someone explain to me what the point of having a gold card is now?

as someone who doesnt go to SB regularly but just randomly for a treat it wasnt that easy to keep my gold status and i didnt get a free drink super often.

i wonder if we still get the free drink during your bday month or did they get rid of that with the previous round of changes? (i cant remember but my birthday is next month!)

i usually get a grande peppermint mocha which is usually $5something without the card. i cant justify spending over $5 on a medium drink. i could barely justify whatever it came out to without the discount.

i think i have enough money on my card left for one drink and then part of another. after that im done with SB. must do it before whatever the date was (Oct 16?)

so sad. they are the only coffee joint around that has soymilk (i dont actually live near Boston, more like 45 mins west in the burbs)
the people at dunkin donuts are always rude plus they dont have soymilk and can never get a simple order right (this seems to be any dunkins not just one in particular)
the people at starbucks were always nice and only gave me milk in my coffee instead of soymilk once the entire time ive been going there and when i realized what they did they remade it for me, offered to me that i could keep the offensive milk drink for someone else, and gave me a coupon for a free drink later.

*sigh*
goodbye peppermint mocha. it was nice knowing you :-(

Do you know who else didn't provide free soy milk for coffee?

Hitler.

Just something to think about. Maybe you should try to be a little bit less like Hitler, Starbucks.
