Limited-Edition Metal Starbucks Card On Sale At Gilt At Noon

Limited-Edition Metal Starbucks Card On Sale At Gilt At Noon

-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.

    @hdawg:
    Same as for any other purchase?

    @Yankees:
    No, for starters it’s over $300.
    But you’ll be able to flip it no problem.

    A few codes that are targeted but you can try anyways:
    my40=$270
    my30=$315
    my25=$337.50
    If the codes go through, you’ll be paying less than the $400 pre-loaded credit and getting all those added benefits or more profit if selling on eBay.

    Unless you got emailed those codes they won’t work.
    Don’t waste your time and miss out on snagging the card.

    Not true from what I saw and was kicking myself about last year.

    Heck even regular gift cards sell above face value on ebay for reasons that nobody can seem to explain.

    The regular gift cards above face value thing blows my mind. It (and Craigslist) used to be a place to snag a gc for 15-20% below face value. Now people are pay 10-15% MORE than face value for something they can buy in a regular store for free or for $3-5 fee. Crazy.

    Search “completed listings” – sure there are sales for profit but there are lots for $400. And then there are eBay fees. Thanks, but I’ll pass.

    I think there was a hack people used to get it. When I was reloading it before it went on sale every other time it would have the button “add to cart” show but didn’t work. Maybe 1000 people got it to work. That sucks.

    @hdawg – thats just javascript. if you disable javascript in your browser you will see add to cart. of course it wont do anything when you click it, because the button is also attached to a script.
