It costs $150. You get a $20 Starbucks card with it, so really itís only $130. There will only be 600 of them made, which is surprising because we canít imagine that there are that many people who would want to buy one. Starbucks is now accepting preorders, and they notified their Gold rewards card members about the product launch today.
The tumbler cannot go in the dishwasher or the microwave.
Mostly, weíre disappointed in the companyís lack of imagination. That is not a blinged-out Starbucks tumbler. THIS is a blinged-out Starbucks tumbler.





Coming soon to a garage sale near you.
