TELL US: Would You Upgrade to a Metal Starbucks Card for $450?
In partnership with Gilt, Starbucks is now offering 5,000 specialized rewards cards, etched in steel, for $450 each.
For residents in the Commonwealth who prefer Starbucks coffee above all other blends, a new offer for a holiday gift idea is now on the table.
Starbucks announced this week that it has made available a limited-edition super premium rewards card for My Starbucks Rewards members, one that is etched in steel.
Unlike the shop's traditional rewards card that enables users to buy various products, the new card, which costs $50 to make, would be loaded with $400, according to USAToday.
Interested members can choose to buy one of the 5,000 available cards on gilt.com/starbucksultimate. The cards will automatically be enrolled in the "gold tier" of Starbucks' loyalty rewards program, according to a Mashable.com report. That will allow consumers to receive free refills on coffee and tea and a free beverage or food item on every 12th purchase, as well as a free birthday drink.
