Every year end, Starbucks will offer something extra special to their customers and it’s usually the Starbucks Planner. Of all the designs that I have seen so far, in my opinion, the Philippines Starbucks consistently offers the best designs and choices every year.
Have a look at their Planner for this year HERE, it’s not only creatively designed, it’s also loaded with extras for customers such as:
- Discount coupon inserts that compels you to buy more coffee as if your not yet addicted to it.
- Sticker inserts used to unleash your creative self and decorate your planners with it.
- Cute bookmarks, reminiscent of Monopoly tokens.
- An ornate side magnetic clip that holds the planner in a closed position
- Intricate front cover design of a tree that grows in a mug and bears an elephant, a house, a Vespa and several random objects
Sure, it requires more purchases, but it certainly looks special and creatively designed, with extras that would keep customers drinking more…
Starbucks Planner 2014
This year, Starbucks Malaysia is offering a Planner in 2 colour choices, grey and brown. You need to have the Starbucks card, purchase 15 handcrafted beverage (Grande) using the Starbucks card and
at least 3 of the beverages must be the Christmas beverage/blend (Grande).
The Planner reward would only be activated once you have purchased a Christmas beverage.
See the example below:
What it means is, even if you have purchased 2 beverages since mid-November (the offer started on the 6th November 2013), it will not be counted as among the 15 beverages. You need to purchase 1 Christmas beverage before the countdown begins.
In the case above, the 2 previous beverages are not counted.
Even the beverage purchased with the Christmas beverage was not included.
So, if you do intend to get the Planner, you must buy the Christmas beverage first to activate the reward.
A friend of mine already has 8 beverages in her card since early this month, but all those are not counted as she only bought the Christmas beverage yesterday. So, she has to purchase 2 more Christmas beverages and 12 other handcrafted beverages before she can redeem the Planner.
I hope the stock lasts till then.
If you’re interested to know more about the offers and going-on in Starbucks towards the end of 2013, do visit Ken Hunts Food , it’s extensively written there, with wonderful pics.

Starbucks fans might want to consider to shop for your Christmas gifts here at Starbucks, be spoiled with the choices of their tumblers or mugs. Do check out for their limited edition but affordably priced Christmas festive gift packs too. Starbucks Drive-Thru Tanjung Tokong should be the Starbucks outlet you are heading to if you are looking for Christmas gifts as they do have a wide range of Starbucks products, in fact, the most completed collections of Starbucks merchandises (in Penang) can be found there. – Ken Hunts Food
