If you are scrambling for Christmas gift ideas, Starbucks will begin selling a $450 gift card this week that is made of stainless steel.
This card provides $400 in store credit; $50 covers the cost of making the card. The card can be reloaded with money.
The card gives the recipient gold level membership in the Starbucks rewards program. This includes a free birthday drink, and a free drink or food item after the purchase of 12 drinks. Paying with your registered Starbucks Card gets you brewed and iced coffee and tea refills at no charge during your visit at a participating store. Customers must typically collect 30 Stars within 12 months to reach the gold level membership.
The limited-edition card goes on sale on Friday but there are only 5,000 cards available. The cards are not available for purchase at Starbucks stores. They will only be sold through Gilt.com.
