Starbucks: Double-charges resolved

Starbucks Corp. says it has re-paid all one million customers the gourmet coffee chain inadvertently double-charged on Memorial Day weekend. A processing computer problem caused the company to bill some credit and debit card customers twice on May 22 and May 23. The error occurred at about 7,800 company-owned stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Starbucks spokeswoman Trina Smith said Wednesday that once the company learned of the error, it began crediting any card with a duplicate charge. Smith said all the double-charges were resolved as of May 29.

Smith said Starbucks is not aware of any outstanding charges but said customers with questions should contact the company at 1-800-23-LATTE.
