Here are A Dozen Things You Need to Know About the Starbucks 2016 Planners:

  1. This is the first Starbucks Philippines Planner done with a collaboration.
    • Starbucks partnered with legendary Moleskine to create the Limited Edition Starbucks by Moleskine 2016 planner.

  2. The 4 colours of the Starbucks Planners 2016 are White, Green, Black, and Red.
    • The first three are standard Starbucks colours while the last one, Red,  is for Christmas.

  3. This is the first Starbucks Planner to come in two sizes!
    • The idea was to address women’s concern who wants to put small planners into their bags. One of the major differences of the big and small planners is that the big one incorporates a weekly planner format while the small one, a daily planner format. I got the big one since I want to see my whole week laid out for scheduling while wifey got the small one so she can carry it anywhere.

  4. This is the first time the Starbucks Philippines planners will benefit 2 NGOs at the onset.
    • You’ll get to help non-profit organizations Teach For The Philippines (TFP) and the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) to fund their advocacies.

  5. All layout style and fonts are Moleskine standard with matching acid-free paper subjected to rigorous quality controls to ensure every detail is preserved.
    • This resulted into a good balance-mix of both Starbucks and Moleskine brands. The colours are standard Moleskine colours while the bands were specifically chosen to complement the cover hues.

  6. To avail of one (1) Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2016 Planner, a customer must accumulate a total of eighteen (18) stickers (9 holiday + 9 core beverages), to redeem.
    • This is the same as last year’s!
    • Moreover, you can combine up to two (2) promo cards; provided that the 9 featured plus 9 core beverages have been purchased.

    Regarding no. 7: “As an added treat, Starbucks custmers get a 1st-day free sticker / stamp on their 2016 Starbucks Planner Card / booklet.”

    So does that mean you can get a free sticker without purchasing anything on Nov. 2 or would you get an additional sticker (meaning you get two) if you purchase a beverage?

      You are right Jules. Buy 1 Starbucks beverage today and get 2 stamps/stickers because your stamp card automatically has 1 free stamp.

        Thanks for the heads up! I got my card yesterday with the free stamp.

        Hi. I actually got the starbucks card for the planner with 1 free stamp. But I notice that it is not actually a sticker itself but it was printed/embedded on the card. Is it authentic. And can I avail it also until march 7, 2016?

    Will you get both the weekly planner and daily planner, or are you only going to choose 1 (either the big one or the small one.]
