And the tradition continues. The much-awaited Starbucks Planner 2015 has been unveiled during a special blogger and media event last October 30 feted by Starbucks Philippines. This is the 12th edition of the Starbucks Planner. I gotta say, from the packaging to the inside pages, these limited-edition planners are sure worth getting.
The planners come in 4 colors: green, red, black, and brown. The design of the first 3 colors is based on the Starbucks barista’s apron: green for the regular apron, red for the Christmas apron, and black for the Reserve.
The planners come with 15 treat coupons, a name tag bookmark, a coffee pin bookmark that’s unique to each planner, and a chalk pen that you can use to write on the name tag bookmark. The pen actually has 2 ends, one with the chalk and the other a highlighter that smells like coffee.
Just like the previous years, the Starbucks Planner 2015 can be yours by getting 18 stickers on your Starbucks Christmas Traditions promo card. That’s 9 Christmas beverages (more on that in the succeeding posts) and 9 core handcrafted beverages (bottled drinks aren’t qualified for a sticker). You can combine 2 promo cards to redeem the planner as long as you complete the 9/9 combo. Sticker collecting starts on November 3, 2014 and ends January 8, 2015, but you can redeem the planner until March 8.
By the way, drink purchases via cash or the Starbucks Card entitles you to a sticker.
There’s also another way to get the Starbucks Planner 2015: make a single-receipt bulk purchase of food items, whole bean coffee, Starbucks VIA, and other merchandise (tumblers, mugs, beanie bears, etc.) amounting to PHP 7,000 and you get a planner of your choice. A caveat: bulk purchases of gift certificates or activation/reloading of the Starbucks Card of at least PHP ,7000 will not entitle the customer of a planner.
If you’ve been collecting Starbucks Planners for years now, this is one edition you should not miss! So visit a Starbucks store near you on November 3 to start collecting stickers for your very own Starbucks Planner 2015.
P.S.: If you’re lucky to be among the first 200 customers on November 3, you get a free sticker on your promo card. 🙂
