Starbucks Holiday Cards 2016

It is November and the holiday season is in full gear here in our beloved Philippines. We are a few weeks away from the Christmas break and the Starbucks Holiday Cards 2016 are finally available at all Starbucks Philippines stores.

Starbucks cards are awesome gift ideas for your coffeeholic loved ones. I, for one, am always happy whenever I receive a Starbucks card. It’s cute. And the load credits and star rewards are helpful for when you’re traveling. You get a cup (or cups) of coffee without spending your cash. Plus, the cards are all oh so pretty.

So, gorgeous. I am quite lucky coz during the Starbucks Philippines Holiday 2016 Launch, I won myself one of these beautiful Red and Gold Cards. It’s a thrill for me to have won this because I collect Starbucks cards and this one is definitely a must-have for me.

The unique thing about this card is its size. The height of the 2016 Red and Gold Starbucks Card is same as the Starbucks Mini Cards but the width is same as their regular cards. It is available from selected Starbucks Philippines stores with an initial consumable amount of P2,500 starting December 5, 2016.

Life On the Go with the MySmart App

I’m traveling again in a few weeks and life is about to get very busy. So it is always great news for me to learn about and use practical apps that make life easier. One of these apps that make me more productive while on the go is the MySmart App.

I currently maintain 4 Smart Prepaid accounts, one for my iPhone, two for my 2 Pocket Wifi units, and one for my Asus ZenFone Max. (Don’t ask why. Just accept the fact that this is true. Haha!) Keeping track of the prepaid load, credits, and packages subscribed on these units can be so confusing. Now, I can easily check, update, and even reload all my accounts with just one app.

MySmart App Smart Prepaid Transactions

The MySmart App allows SMART Prepaid users to do several transactions in just a few minutes, with just a few taps.
