I received this e-mail, and although I don’t order drinks from them, I am still outraged at the way prices are issued here in Kuwait. It’s ludicrous!
The left receipt is the New York branch, while the right is Kuwait branch. Notice the the price difference of the same order (tall hot chocolate). So how much of a difference is there in price? According to the popular online currency site XE.com, it costs 900 fils for a tall hot chocolate in New York, and 1.500 KD for the same order in Kuwait. That makes the Starbucks in Kuwait 60% more expensive than America……for shame!
