$450 Starbucks Card Now On Sale

Posted: Updated:

Move over gift cards. Starbucks is offering its first "super premium" gift card. USA Today reports the coffee giant is releasing the Starbucks Metal Card, which costs 450-dolllars. It's loaded with 400 dollars. Starbucks says it costs another 50 dollars to make the card, which is made of steel instead of plastic. 

It will only make five-thousand of the cards, sold through Gilt-dot-com. It's on sale Friday. Not everyone's a fan of the concept. One cultural anthropologist tells U-S-A Today it's a card for the "one percent," and it's all about status.
