-Hand-assembled of metal.
-The card costs $450, and comes pre-loaded with $400, valid at Starbucks.
-You also get My Starbucks Rewards™ Gold-level status, which means your birthday treat’s on the house, and you get a free drink or food item after 12 Stars and free in-store coffee and tea refills (some restrictions apply).
-Like the stainless-steel card that sold out in minutes on Gilt last year, this is an exclusive offering, and limited to just 1,000 pieces.
Sounds terrible, right? Paying $450 for a $400 fancy gift card?
Except that these things were being flipped on eBay for $1,000.
And this year there are only 1,000 being sold compared to 5,000 last year.
Good luck grabbing it, keep refreshing that page!
If you don’t have a Gilt account you’ll want to open one now. This is my Gilt referral link if you’d like to use that to open an account.
