Every year when the Ber months come along, the Christmas season in the Philippines begin. And around the same time, Starbucks lovers excitedly wait for the announcement and launch of Limited Edition Starbucks Planners.
This year is no different. A few weeks ago, social media was buzzing with excitement over posts that the 2016 Starbucks Planners is a collaboration with cult favorite Italian notebook maker, Moleskine. For many years already, Moleskine has been a favorite buy of bloggers. It is, after all, designed, crafted, and produced like the notebooks that legendary artists like Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway used to sketch and write their creations.
During the Starbucks Davao Bloggers #SparktheSpirit event, the unveiling of the Starbucks Moleskine 2016 Planners was most awaited. I, for one, was excited to see and touch the product.
I was revealed that there will be 4 kinds of Starbucks Moleskine 2016 Planners: full sized Daily Planners in Green and White, and smaller Weekly Planners in Red and Black. When the Starbucks executives revealed the planners, all the Davao Bloggers in attendance paid attention to how they can own their very own Limited Edition Starbucks 2016 Planner.
The good news is that it won’t cost you more to get this very special planner. Starting today, November 2, 2015 until January 7, 2016, you can get a Starbucks Christmas Traditions Card from any Starbucks Philippines Store.
You need only eighteen stickers (just like in the past years) to be able to redeem one planner. You get one sticker for every handcrafted Starbucks beverage you buy. You have to collect 9 Holiday Featured Drinks stickers and 9 more by buying any handcrafted Starbucks Core Beverage. This year’s Holiday Featured Drinks are Peppermint Mocha (MY FAVORITE!), Toffee Nut Latte, and the newly launched Christmas Panettone Latte.
You can collect stickers until January 7, 2016. And you can redeem your Starbucks Moleskine 2016 Planner until March 7, 2016. Don’t hesitate, don’t even think about it. Any kind of Moleskine notebook is something to be valued. And you can have a limited edition one buy enjoying cups of your favorite Starbucks beverages.
To spark the holiday spirit, Starbucks gave Davao Bloggers an awesome surprise during the launch event.
We each went home with a Starbucks Holiday Loot Bag with these inside.
Uhuh! That’s our very own Starbucks Moleskine 2016 Planner in the size and color of our choice. They also included a bag of the Starbucks Christmas Blend, a Starbucks Christmas Tumbler, a special Starbucks Holiday Cookie in a cute penguin design, and a Merry Christmas Starbucks Card.
Starbucks has definitely sparked the Holiday spirit in us and we look forward to today, November 2, 2015 as Starbucks fans like us troop to their favorite Starbucks Store to taste the 2016 Holiday Menu, see and buy the new holiday merchandise, buy their favorite drinks, and collect stickers to get their own Starbucks Moleskine 2016 Planner.
Share the holiday spirit by giving your loved ones a Starbucks Moleskine 2016 Planner. Or you can share with them a drink or a sticker so they can redeem one for themselves.
