Economical woman shares trick for keeping Starbucks order under $4

A thrifty woman took to TikTok to share her hack for always keeping her Starbucks order under $4.

On Sept. 28, the TikTok user named Natalie shared her “Starbucks hack” involving a surprisingly simple order.

According to Natalie, all you have to do is order a Venti Triple Espresso and add the milk and syrup of your choice, and it comes out to under $4. (For reference, a Grande Pumpkin Cream Nitro Cold Brew costs $5.)

TikTok users — including Starbucks baristas! — were fans of Natalie’s money-saving move.

“As a barista, this is super easy to make — so it’s a win win,” one Starbucks employee raved.

“This has just changed my life,” another added.

“You just saved me so much money,” a third person commented.

Natalie has many other cost-effective tricks on her TikTok. In one video, she notes that you can add vanilla sweet cream cold foam to any Starbucks drink for just $1 more. In another, she shares how to make a beautiful fall flower centerpiece using materials from Dollar Tree totaling just $10.
