Sneak Peek of the 2017 Starbucks Planners

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Because it's November 2 already, every Starbucks fan knows what this day means! It's the time of the year once again for the collection of beverage stickers to be able to get the highly-coveted Starbucks planners! ;)


But before we get into that, in case you missed the Starbucks Grand Christmas Launch last October 29 and 30, you can check out snippets of what happened on the video below. Hit the play button below!


Starbucks Philippines made me feel the Christmas way earlier for me because they gave me not just one, but both the designs for this year's planners! Super amazing, right? I'm on a high whenever I think about it. teehee

Coming from last year's minimalist planner, Starbucks stepped up their planner-gaming by adding several add-ons such as doodled cloth pouches with gold zippers, glossy stickers, machiatto bookmark and an erasable pen (similar to Pentel's fine Frixion pen)!

No need to worry because the only difference between the Blue Siren and Coffee Stain planners are the cover and the pouch design only. Meaning, you still get best dibs with whatever design you choose.

Closer look at the Blue Siren Planner
I got attracted to the Blue Siren design the moment I saw Inquirer's post about this. It was a love at first sight! The pattern and color scheme both on the planner and pouch is an instant hit for me. <3

Closer look at the Coffee Stain Planner
While this may not be my cup of tea, I highly appreciate the realistic and minimalist coffee stain of the planner.

The starter pages for every month are designed based on coffee stains and watercolor strokes. This also features interactive activities at the bottom that you can do within the page if you're feeling extra artistic. Another thing, all the monthly separators are IG worthy! ;)

Similar to the Starbucks x Moleskine planner, this planner is in a weekly format (which I'm still trying to get used to because of the minimal space. hihi) Regardless, the Notes page beside does not have a line guide anymore so feel free to draw on it, if you like. :)

Yay for more Notes pages at the back! I rely to these pages if ever I have a quick meeting with no notepad at hand. :)

Yea right, what's a Starbucks planner without a coupon! Same old, same old. There is one alloted coupon for every month. The new thing I've noticed with the coupon for the coming year is that, there are now tea privileges as well!

The best part when you redeem a 2017 Starbucks Planner? Starbucks donate to their partner NGO in cultivating change such as Teach for the Philippines (TFP) and The Philippine Theater Association (PETA). :D
In the past years that Starbucks had been producing planners, I am at awe to see the drastic design change. For last years, the design of the planners tend to be minimalist because of their collaboration with Moleskine. And this time, they went all out fun with the brush strokes and color stains. Let's not forget the add-ons such as the pouches, stickers and pen!

HOW TO GET THESE PLANNERS?

I know, you know the drill! If not yet, it's either you bulk purchase gift certificates / Starbucks Card load for Php 7,000 or complete 18 stickers on the Starbucks Christmas Traditions Promo Card to get one planner of your desired design. 

For the 18 stickers, make sure to get 9 of any Starbucks Core Handcrafted Beverage of your stores and 9 Holiday Featured Beverages. Toffee Nut is my ultimate fave but Santa Hat Dark Mocha is something that I want to try as well. ;)

You may start collecting stickers by TODAY, November 2, 2016 until January 8, 2017. Also, you may redeem your limited edition Starbucks Coffee 2017 Planners starting today until March 9, 2017.

Apart from today's sticker collecting, Starbucks Card collectors must go to the store early to avail the newest card for the holiday season:
