If you, like me, have a weak spot for Starbucks coffee, and #treatyourself to a $6 Frapp more often than you should, this article is for you.\nI spoke to a Starbucks barista to learn about some of the ways people can save on their usual drink orders, and it's made me realize that I've been ordering wrong at Starbucks my entire life.\nFrom swapping syrups to amazing custom drinks, the hacks I have learnt have changed my life forever.\nHack To Save On Frappuccinos\nThe S'mores Frappuccino is notoriously expensive: the frap is priced at $5.45 for a grande. But our local, friendly barista has a secret hack.\nThe s'mores frap is basically a vanilla frappuccino with graham crackers, some chocolate syrup and a marshmallow whipped cream.\nView this post on Instagram A sight for s’more eyes. 🔥 #SmoresFrappuccino drink Available at US and Canada stores while supplies last.

At Starbucks, a Grande iced latte with a pump of vanilla and a non-dairy milk can set you back over $6.\nIt doesn't have to be that expensive, says our barista. Switch out your iced latte order for an iced coffee instead. Because the iced coffee only comes with a splash of milk, you won't get charged if you switch to a non-dairy milk.\nView this post on Instagram Sweet and salty and smooooth. ❄️ #ColdBrew with Salted Cream Cold Foam A post shared by Starbucks Coffee ☕ (@starbucks) on Jun 27, 2019 at 9:22am PDT\nYou also won't get charged for the vanilla syrup, because the iced coffee also includes a pump of regular syrup, which they'll switch for a vanilla-flavoured syrup at no extra cost. This iced coffee hack could save you almost $2.\nOther Amazing Hacks To Try\nWant to turn your "pink drink" into a slushie?
