Starbucks gift cards poised to be the most popular gift this holiday season (again).
This Christmas Eve Day, Starbucks is poised to again break its own record sale of over 2 million gift cards--that’s 1,500 Starbucks gift cards purchased per minute, the most popular last minute gift for procrastinators.
Over the course of the last year, 4 billion dollars have been spent on Starbucks gift cards. For some perspective that’s:
- The GDP of Malawi
- The value of the Real Madrid soccer team
- The cost of all spending during the United States midterm elections
- The amount that the European Union brokered in behalf of gas supply for Ukraine this winter
- The value of Chinese equipment exports that will build a 1400km railway in Nigeria
