Starbucks Barista Becomes Foursquare Mayor, Blocks Customers from Getting Discounts

New, 6 comments

At an undisclosed location, a Starbucks employee became the mayor of the store on Foursquare, well, because he works there. Thing is, Starbucks is running a promotion through June 28th, offering $1 off a Frappuccino to the store's mayor.

So basically customers don't even have a chance at getting the discount. It's sort of unfair, but it's only a dollar (!) and not like a free Frappuccino or anything. The person who discovered this was "shocked" and actually emailed the Starbucks corporate office because "it seemed wrong" and felt the need to report the horrible injustice.
