Starbucks - I went to buy a $50 gift card-gave a $100 bill and was refused (Cnd. currency is legal in Canada)
It is illegal not to accept the currency of the country. I know this is your policy but it is wrong.
If I was buying a $3-$5 item then I could understand the problem when presenting a $100 bill (it would still be illegal to refuse) but a little more understandable on my part. This was to be a birthday present for my
daughter-in-law who by the way loves Starbucks but since this problem I
believe she has switched. Too bad (big customer)
Most companies have machines to detect counterfeit bills. Statistics show
there are more $20 phonies than any other bill.
