Advertised Prices for Breakfast Sandwiches at Starbucks

August 2016: A state judge preliminarily approved a settlement of this action. According to the settlement terms, customers who purchased a reduced fat turkey bacon breakfast sandwich or a sausage and cheddar breakfast sandwich are eligible to receive a 25 cent refund. Class members who used their Starbucks Rewards accounts will receive their refund automatically while class members who used other payment methods must provide proof of purchase to receive a Starbucks gift card.

May 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Starbucks for allegedly deceptively advertising prices for breakfast sandwiches – including the reduced-fat turkey bacon breakfast sandwich and the sausage and cheddar breakfast sandwich – that are lower than the ones actually charged by baristas. According to the complaint, Starbucks misleadingly advertises the price of the turkey bacon sandwich as $3.45 when it actually costs $3.75 and the price of the sausage and cheddar sandwich as $3.25 when it actually costs $3.45. (Martin et al v. Starbucks Corp. et al, Case No. BC582335, Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles)
