The Starbucks 2013 Planner - It comes in black, white and green colors
November 3, 2012 - It's not an official holiday in the Philippines anymore but this day is still something that Filipinos is waiting for. It is because this is the date that Starbucks Philippines declared to be the start of their sticker collecting season for their annual planner giveaway. The red cups are once again out to paint the country red and "rekindle the joy" this holiday season. I've shared on my blog earlier some of the news about the new planner but now I have the full information of this year's Starbucks 2013 Planner promo!
The nostalgic collection of Starbucks planners for 10 years already.
Starbucks 2013 Planner was launched at their kick-off party, which I will post as well more details on a separate post. Based on display at the launch, the theme of this year's planners is entitled Moments of Connection. It has been 10 years since Starbucks Philippines started this annual promotion to give their loyal customers a limited edition planner. I can still remember I was still in college when they started it and I will convince my friends to study in Starbucks and purchase drinks so I can get my own planner. 

What is the same as last year?
- They are still providing coupons inside the planner. Here are the coupons available:
The 2013 Planner coupons!
- Same Christmas drinks or Holiday Beverage flavors this year, which are Toffee Nut Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Dark Cherry Mocha (my personal favorite)
- You can still combine up to 2 promo cards to redeem a planner
- For every planner redeemed, you can help Starbucks beneficiary for years already, which is SparkHope foundation.
- The planner comes with still with a bookmark. However, this year it is cuter with a magnetic bookmark compared to just paper bookmark last year.

What is different this year?
- One noticeable difference is the size of the planner. This year's planner is bigger compared to last year. See the difference with the picture below:
Comparison of 2012 and 2013 planners - You can easily observe 2013 version is bigger

- There are less number of planner variants this year. They have 3 colors this year (black, white and green) as compare to 5 last year.
- Last year, you have 2 options of getting a planner; either having 23 free choice of core beverage drinks or same with holiday drinks for lesser stickers (17). For this year, you only have one option which is to get 9 Holiday featured beverages and 8 core beverages, which is the same as latter option above.
- The cover of this year's planner is leather as compared to wood last year. :)
- No more pouch to cover or put your planner as compared last year.
- There are post-its inside the planner that one can use

I'm very fortunate that during the Rekindle the Joy Kick-off Party I was drawn on the raffle to get the brand new Starbucks planner! I'm now thinking if I should already use it or give it as a promo for my blog. Hope Starbucks Philippines can give me as well some stuff to give away my avid followers. I know you want one as well.
