Starbucks Sued Over Cancelled Free Coffee Coupon

AP: “Starbucks Corp. was sued for $114 million Friday over its recall last week of a coupon that entitled the holder to a free large iced drink being promoted by the giant Seattle coffee retailer.

Peter Sullivan, the lawyer who sued on behalf of a 23-year-old Starbucks regular who felt “betrayed” when her coupon was not honored, accused the company of fraud and said he will request class-action status to include the “thousands who were misled” by the offer.

Starbucks just doesn’t get The Internet. It’s not a truck you can just dump a bunch of a coffee on. It’s a series of percolators.
