After coming under fire for setting a cap on the 20-percent discount senior citizens and persons with disability (PWDs) are legally entitled to, Starbucks Philippines will offer a 40 percent discount to select customers on Jan. 24, 2024 (Wednesday).

The one-day only promo covers senior citizens, PWDs, national athletes, solo parents from certain localities, and medal of valor recipients for all food and beverage items at Starbucks stores across the country.

“Eligible Solo Parents discounts shall only apply to those belonging to the following local government units that provide discounts under their respective ordinances: Mandaluyong City, Quezon City, San Pablo City, and Angeles City, Pampanga,” the company said.

The offer must be personally availed by the eligible customer for personal consumption only for in-store, take out and drive-thru.
Starbucks earlier lifted the “one food item and one beverage” cap it imposed on seniors and PWDs following a House inquiry ordered by Speaker Martin Romualdez.
Angela Cole, who identified herself as operations manager of Starbucks Philippines, told the House committee on ways and means the sign restricting the legally-mandated discount was a “mistake.”

Cole said the policy, which took effect on Jan. 15, 2024, “was not properly worded.”
ACT Teachers party-list Rep. France Castro rebuked Starbucks, saying it would not have rectified its error had Romualdez not ordered the inquiry.
