Starbucks Selling Stupidly Overpriced Gift Card for Mothers Day
Rikki Wright / 3 years ago
Mother’s Day is fast approaching for our US readers and if you’re like me; you still haven’t bought a thing. Well good news, Starbucks have us covered.
For the amazing price of just $200, you get a special edition metal and ceramic Starbucks Card….with just $50 pre-loaded. “For Mother’s Day, give her beautiful flowers—the ones etched into this elegant and exclusive Starbucks Card.” Why yes, my mother sure would like some flowers, hey she also likes coffee; two birds one stone…
The card does actually look quite nice and the thought of a metal/ceramic card sounds ideal; up until the point where it bends and you can no longer swipe it. The purchase is limited to 1 per customer; so I can see some complaints coming in if you have same-sex parents; the world is changing Starbucks, you better catch up.
So, for $200 you get a piece of metal and $50 pre-loaded cash to spend at Starbucks; please tell me the rest of the money is stuffed into the padding. I can’t quite tell if this is an extremely late April fools, or if Starbucks has lost its mind; either way, I’ve had a bit of a giggle.
If you’ve had a bump on the head and are interested in buying this, visit the Starbucks item page.
