I’ve been looking forward to Starbucks Philippines releasing a card design that we could call our own. Well, whaddayaknow? Wish granted!
Yes, the 1st Edition Philippine Starbucks Card is making its presence known to everyone. Featuring a sketch of the Philippine Eagle, our national animal, in the colors of red, blue, and yellow on a banig pattern, the card’s design surely showcases our culture and roots. And the word “Pilipinas” etched in gold just makes the card perfect, doesn’t it?
The Philippine Starbucks Card will be available in stores beginning July 29, 2014. This will only be released in the Philippines, so it’s truly a collectible — you gotta have your own. 🙂
Along with the release of the card is the launch of a new Starbucks tumbler that will surely complement the Philippine Starbucks Card:
Also, with the launch of the Philippine Starbucks Card comes some exciting treats:
First, if you activate or load your Philippine Starbucks Card with PHP 1,500 (one-time transaction) from July 29 to 31, 2014, you get an additional PHP 300. So instead of just PHP 1,500, the load in your card becomes PHP1,800!
And second, if you purchase the new Philippine Starbucks Card Tumbler using your Philippine Starbucks Card from July 29 to August 31, 2014, you get a free tall handcrafted beverage! Now ain’t that sweet?
There are a lot more stuff coming on July 29, including new food and beverage items, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, mark your calendars and be one of the first people to get the Philippine Starbucks Card when it arrives in stores because they’ll be coming in limited quantities.
Kudos to Starbucks Philippines for bringing the 1st Edition Philippine Starbucks Card to our shores! 🙂
