Starbucks’ $5 for $10 virtual gift card deal offered Wednesday on LivingSocial was a hit, shattering both caffeine cravings and the previous daily deal record. According to daily deals aggregator Yipit, the international coffee company’s 50% off a $10 Starbucks virtual gift card is the best-selling daily deal of all time.
By 11 p.m. ET last night, the offer was sold out and 1.5 million gift cards were sold.
This is the second time Starbucks has offered a virtual gift card through a daily deals site; the first was done through Google Offers in April.
