(NEW YORK) — Starbucks made 5,000 special edition etched steel $450 gift cards to be sold only on the luxury website Gilt.com, according to USA Today. The cards went on sale on Friday and sold out instantly.
Potential customers were outraged and complained on Twitter.
Starbucks members got first crack at the cards on Thursday before they opened up to the public on Friday.
There is speculation on Gilt’s Facebook page that the cards sold out Thursday and were never really available at all the next day.
