“Ask for a Venti water with peach juice,” a computerized voice says in Shay’s video. “So cheap and so good.”
The 11-second clip was shared to TikTok on Dec. 8, 2021, and it has been viewed by more than 3.7 million people. Fox News Digital reached out to Shay for comment.
TikTok’s users were divided about Shay’s drink hack in the comments section. Some praised the method while others argued that Shay’s recommendation is a “custom tea” order and should cost more.
If you’re a Starbucks fan on a budget, there’s a drink hack that’ll help you get a drink under $1, according to Starbucks barista Shay P, who shared a TikTok video showing how customers can order a ‘cheap’ beverage with water and juice. (iStock)
In additional reply videos, Shay explained that she works at a Starbucks location inside a Kroger supermarket.
Although not all baristas agree with Shay’s drink recommendation, customers have gone to Starbucks locations throughout the country and have documented their experience on TikTok.
Many of these reply videos and reviews can be found under the app’s Starbucks Secret Menu hashtag. In these videos, successful water and juice purchases have varied in price depending on the Starbucks location, but for the most part, each were priced under $1.
