and For A Very Limited Time!
What could it be, you ask? What could be so coveted that a limited edition of only 5,000 of these items SOLD OUT in just one day?
What could it be that has stunning etched steel designs?
For the low, low price of $450 - what, oh, what could it be??
I don't even know where to start, I am so stunned myself. It is...
...a Starbucks card.
You already know how I feel about Starbucks. But, wouldn't you know, they sent me an e-mail yesterday saying I'd earned a free cup of coffee.
It's a love/hate thing.
But I'm not getting one of these:
For $450, these little babies come pre-loaded with $400 in credit and automatic Gold membership status. Which means, after you give them $50 for the card, you only have to buy twelve more cups of coffee to get a free one instead of the normal 42.
This must make sense to somebody because they're all gone.
Last year, I made the mistake of giving Santa a choice: I wanted a trip to Belize or coffee. What I got was coffee. Roughly six pounds of it. (And, I drank it all.)
This year, forget Belize. And, forget coffee.
If you feel so moved as to spend $450 at Starbucks, buy me stock.
