For the ultimate ‘Starbucks lovers,’ or at least those with luxury tastes, Starbucks has launched this year’s special edition cards. Past iterations include a sterling silver keychain card, a 10-karat hammered gold card, and a stainless steel and ceramic card featuring laser-etched floral details.
For the 2015 premium card collection, Starbucks has been introducing cards embellished with Swarovski crystals, launching a silver Swarovski crystal-encrusted stainless steel keychain gift card in November, then a champagne-colored variety in early December, and most recently a deep blue version of the card. The card, which retails for $200 and is preloaded with $50, is available while supplies last in select stores, according to the Starbucks website.
For those not willing to shell out the cash for a crystal-encrusted gift card, Starbucks still offers other gift card designs exclusive to the holiday season. Unlike its controversial coffee cups, these cards offer decorative options including two flamingos wearing Santa hats, a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows and a candy cane, and a pine forest with the word ‘Wonder’ written in the sky with clouds.
