Starbucks Is Selling A $50 Gift Card That Costs $200

Would you buy it?

Posted on

Well you're in luck, because Starbucks has just come out with a "limited-edition" card just for Mother's Day.

Only 1,500 of the cards are being sold, Starbucks says on its website.

"The card, each hand-assembled, features a gorgeous artisan rose base metal with rose colored coating, laser-etched with traditional Starbucks lettering," the site says.

Huh? To get to the bottom of this, BuzzFeed News asked Starbucks to explain their reasoning.

A Starbucks spokesperson said the card is a "limited-edition" card that is hand-made by designers.

"This gift is made with premium materials including the stainless steel card, a satin ceramic finish, and laser-etched floral details," she said.

This actually isn't the first time Starbucks has offered a "limited-edition" card. Last Christmas, the company also sold a card that cost $200 and had $50 preloaded on it.

  1. So, would you buy this Starbucks card?

    Yeah, it seems like a pretty sweet gift for my mom.
    Are you crazy? That's a total rip-off.
