Get a closer look at the new Starbucks Cards for 2016
It’s been three years since Starbucks Philippines has launched the Starbucks Cards. And to celebrate its anniversary, this famous coffee company is unveiling not one, not two, but THREE new card designs that you’ll surely want to collect.
Starting August 8, Starbucks will offer three new core cards: Manila, Cebu, and the special edition Siren card.
The city cards’ designs are made to evoke a sense of pride about the rich history and culture of the Philippines. The Manila Starbucks Card is inspired by a summer’s night in the capital, focusing on the iconic commuter jeepney traveling the busy city at night. The Cebu Starbucks Card, on the other hand, features the scenery of Marcelo Fernan Bridge and Mactan Mandaue Bridge as if viewed from the hilltops, and decked with Sinulog flowers.
Meanwhile, the Special Edition Siren Card highlights Starbucks’ rich coffee heritage and represents the brand’s loyalty to its roots.
All these cards are available for an initial consumable load of PHP 300. Take note, though, that the Manila Starbucks Card is available only in Metro Manila stores, while the Cebu Starbucks Card is available only in Cebu. The Special Edition Siren Card can be had at any Starbucks store nationwide.
But wait, that’s not all that’s new at Starbucks, because the Manila and Cebu cards also come with a matching tumbler, each available in their respective stores.
With the release of the new cards also comes an anniversary treat: customers who activate any of the featured qualified Starbucks Cards with at least PHP 1,500 from August 8 to 10 will receive a complimentary Starbucks mini green apron card carrier or a Grande handcrafted beverage of your choice. Qualified cards are the Manila Card in Metro Manila, Cebu Card in Cebu, and the Special Edition Siren Card in all non-Manila and non-Cebu stores.
I’m telling you, these cards are sure worth getting (and collecting, if you’re into it). So make it a point to visit a Starbucks store near you starting August 8 to get your hands on the new Starbucks Cards for 2016.
