Starbucks Spiced Chocolate Biscotti are selling at a 99% discount through a hole in the internet matrix
I'm not sure how to word this without sounding like a scammy spammer, but I want to boast about this Starbucks deal I stumbled upon that appears to be a mistake (not just low market value, like four-cent Philadelphia 76ers tickets).
Recently when buying a bottle of water at an airport Starbucks I picked up a spiced chocolate biscotti on a whim. I enjoyed the biscotti so much that I wanted to eat more of them -- but not so much that I would go to Starbucks to shell out $1.75 apiece for them.
I turned to Google to see if I could buy them in bulk or if they were sold at another retail outlet. I landed on a Starbucks.com page that looks like a defunct order page for the biscotti (no product image and a price of $0.01 for each biscotti). If you use the normal Starbucks navigation, the biscotti are nowhere to be found, so this appears to be a page that isn't supposed to be viewable to the public. But the page said the biscotti were in stock, so I added 12 to my cart. To my surprise, I was able to place the order and was charged $0.12 plus $4.95 shipping. A few days later, the dozen biscotti arrived at my door!
Needless to say, I immediately placed another (larger) order for which I'm now waiting. Perhaps other Starbucks products can be similarly ordered in this way, but I'm not seeking them out because I'd feel guilty putting a nice Mom & Pop shop like Starbucks out of business. For now I choose to believe that Starbucks just really wants me to have penny biscotti.
