Starbucks is synonymous with the word “expensive” – therefore their ridiculous new gift card should come as no surprise. The card is made from steel and is loaded with $400, however, you’ll have to shell out an extra $50 for the card itself.
Only 5,000 cards will be made, and they will be distributed exclusively through Gilt.com. In an attempt to explain why people should spend $50 on a steel rectangle, the company’s executive VP came up with this:
“When you’re waiting in line at Starbucks, the next person in line won’t have it”
Sadly, that will probably be enough for some people to waste their money on this.
