'Tis the season to be jolly,: Fa la la la la la la la la.
It's unboxing time! Yes, starting November 2, Starbucks returns with its 11th limited edition Starbucks Planner. They actually have four leather covers to choose from ( yellow, brown, magenta and black).

Click to view recent post. Quick look on the planners.


Okay, let's start the unboxing. The box of the planner only has one look. This is it. It's around 7.25 x 9 inches. I chose the color brown. No, its not orange or gold. It's brown.
It comes with a nice clip / bookmark which has a really nice design to it. Each planner has a different bookmark design. See it right here.


Put it on the side if you want to use it as a bookmark

Or clip / group certain pages in the planner

They have like 4 kinds of designs for the bookmarks. Coffee bean for the Yellow, the Magenta (It's not pink) has the Vinta , the brown has the house and the black one has the classic Starbucks cup.


The cover is pretty interesting. Each color has a different design. The embossed elements on the leather cover are the ones that is inspired by the roast profile of the whole beans coffee at Starbucks.

The Blonde Roast is the yellow one, Medium Roast for the brown, Dark Roast for the magenta and Starbucks Reserve Coffees which is exotic, rare and exquisite coffees soon to be available in the Philippines for the black.

Almost the same lock as last year but this one has a bling in it with the similar design as the ones that is embossed on the cover last year. (Starbucks 2013 Planner)

This year's theme is "Coffee Perfection" which can be seen as you flip and browse through the pages of the Starbucks 2014 planner.
QR codes are also found on some of the pages. A Starbucks representative shared that this is the first time that they had QR codes on the pages of the planner. By scanning the code, it will lead you to a video link that talks about that page's story. (Starbucks Coffee, Sourcing, Roasting)

The inside pages had interesting stories and information about their coffee, their partners and their story.


It gives you info on their different coffee blends and how to brew a perfect cup. 

Here's the space where you write your schedule and calendar. 




It looks spacious enough, almost the same as last year. This time, personal information is at the back with their social media accounts and website with QR codes.

What's new this year is the sheet of sticker along with the coupons. 17 icon stickers and 9 sticker bookmarks.

This year, Starbucks will have 14 coupons which you can use throughout the year. Some coupon are as follows:

-Buy 1 take 1 Espresso Beverage
-P50 off any lunch sandwich when you purchase a tall handcrafted beverage from 11am to 2pm
-10% off any Starbucks merchandise, whole bean, or 12-pack Starbucks VIA Ready Brew
-Free tall handcrafted beverage with purchase of any Starbucks tumbler
-Free Tall Brewed Coffee, Full Leaf Tea, or Iced Tea when you reload P500 onto your Starbucks Card



The coupons may be redeemed at any Starbucks store in the Philippines during a specified period in 2014.

The back cover is pretty much simple.
So how do we get a hold of Starbucks 2014 Planner? Easy. There are three ways.


1st. A customer can avail of a 2014 Starbucks Philippines Planner promo card from November 2, 2013 to January 8, 2014

One (1) sticker is awarded for each Starbucks beverage purchase. Holder must accumulate a total of eighteen (18) stickers , nine (9) Christmas beverage plus nine (9) core beverages except bottled drinks) to redeem one (1) Limited Edition Starbucks Philippines 2014 Planner.

2nd is, use your Starbucks Card, just load P 5,000 and BOOM! you get your Starbucks 2014 Planner on the spot. No, it's not purchasing the Starbucks 2014 Planner but you can use the P5,000 load to purchase handcrafted beverage and coffee beans. So, if you compute it and average of P150.00 x 18 drinks is around 2,700. and with that P5,000 I think you'd end up getting two. :) saving you a lot and giving you more rewards. I hope I didn't lose you guys. :)

*Using the Starbucks Card, you earn stickers and beverage drinks btw. Bonus after bonus after bonus.

3rd is, do your Christmas Shopping there. Purchase Mugs, tumblers, coffee and other merchandise worth P5,000.00 and BOOM! You get your Starbucks 2014 Planner.
