Beyonce Sticks It to Target, Drops $37,500 on Walmart Gift Cards

Bey's Pricey Dinner
Beyonce spent more than $2,000 on chicken.
Eat your heart out, Target.

After the superstore chain refused to sell her new self-titled albumBeyonce took her business — and money — somewhere else, dropping a boat load of cash at its competitor by giving out spending money to 750 of their customers.

Following her Dave and Busters album release party, the “XO” singer visited a Walmart in Tewksbury, Mass., and bought $37,500 worth of gift cards for shoppers. (That totals to $50 per head, for those slow on the math.)

Besides making it rain free Christmas dough like she’s Oprah, Mrs. Jay-Z also did a little shopping, picking up some toys — presumably for Blue Ivy — and a her copy of own album. You know, because she’s Beyonce and she can do whatever she wants it doesn’t hurt to add more sales to her No. 1 record.

Hey Bey, word has it that Amazon won’t be stocking your album either. Can you pay for my Prime account then?
