I thought that had to be a joke, AND IT ISN'T!!This from the Trib:
Starbucks is now offering a gift card for $450 --$400 to fill the card with store credit and $50 toward the sleek, stainless steel card itself.
Anyone who does that is officially a moron.
It went on to say at another site:
"Get this. The gift card is made of steel, and there will be only 5,000 of them sold. And, hereís the really appealing part - they each cost $450 but theyíll be loaded with only $400. What a bargain of a stocking stuffer!
You canít walk into your corner Starbucks and pick up one of these babies, though. You need to buy them at the luxury gift website Gilt. They arenít even for sale yet. The sale will start in two days.
The steel card will give holders a few extra perks like a free drink on their birthday and a free food or drink item after 12 Stars..."
