One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the announcement and race for the Starbucks planner. I’ve been using planners since 2005 and have relied on it to keep track of dates, events, deadlines, and appointments, and the years have become more special because I use my handy dandy planner!
This year, Starbucks has outdone itself yet again by releasing four versions of two variants: two planners and two travel organizers. I have all the details for you and I’m doing another giveaway so check out what the coffee chain has in store for you:
The Starbucks planners come in two colors: espresso and milk. Both come in canvas covers with a metallic gold and copper stamping. It comes in a weekly format with the opposite page for notes in a grid format for bullet journaling, and a monthly activity with a hashtag. I like the calligraphy inspired artwork as it adds a customized touch to it. All planners come with a canvas pouch and a limited edition Starbucks card.
Those who move on the go will like the Starbucks travel organizers, which come in dark teal and sienna. The notebooks are in grid format to allow full customization and sketching. The organizer has space for a phone, a pen, earphones, and other valuables. All travel organizers come with a special edition Starbucks card.
Each Starbucks 2019 planner and travel organizer comes with a special edition Starbucks card designed with either the Starbucks siren, a roasted bean, or the perfect brew. Each card must be activated with a minimum activation of P500.
How to Avail the Starbucks 2019 Planners and Travel Organizers
Like in previous years, you must avail 18 stickers on a free paper promo card to redeem one Starbucks planner or travel organizer. One sticker is given for any Tall, Grande, or Venti handcrafted beverage. That’s right, it’s now no longer split between any beverage and the holiday beverages! Collecting of stickers is from November 2, 2018 to January 7, 2019. Redemption of the planner or travel organizer will be from November 2, 2018 to March 8, 2019.
You can also go the digital route by using the Starbucks Philippines mobile app. Once you opt in the promo, an e-promo card will be issued and will be eligible for an e-sticker for every purchase of a Tall, Grande, or Venti beverage. Like the paper promo card, 18 stickers are needed to redeem a planner or a travel organizer. This is a great option, especially for those who keep forgetting their paper cards.
Starbucks For a Year
Once you activate and register the Starbucks card that comes with any of the planners or travel organizers, you are eligible to join the Starbucks for a Year promo, where, you guessed it, you can win 365 drinks so you can have one every day for a year. Starbucks will be awarding 21 winners, and will also award 21 winners for Starbucks For a Month and another 21 winners for Starbucks for a Week. The free drinks are Grande handcrafted beverages with up to two add-ons.
The announcement for the Starbucks For a Week winners will be announced on November 23, 2018, while the announcement of the winners of the Starbucks For a Month will be on December 7, 2018. Lastly, the winners of the Starbucks For a Year will be on January 18, 2019.

I will announce the winners on November 8 on this post, and I will also contact you via Instagram.
Thank you so much for sharing your stories with me. Some made me smile or laugh, and many touched my heart. As much as I would love to give everyone a travel organizer (I spent an hour collating, reading, and choosing), I can only give one. But because I loved the stories so much, I decided to give five other people small gifts for participating. I was originally planning to give one “consolation” prize but luckily I have other Starbucks merchandise here!
The winner of the travel organizer is @nova_espinosa, who loves writing on her planners and keeping all of them at home. She also prefers writing things down instead of more modern options, and the Starbucks 2019 travel organizer will be her best partner.
I’m giving a Starbucks passport holder to @vinzlamorena, a frequent traveler who needs the organizer for her research, itinerary-planning, ticket-purchasing, and all sorts of bookings. She can bring this passport holder with her to every trip (photo to be sent via DM).
I’m giving a Starbucks tote bag to @abibubot, a new mother who will be taking the medical boards! She said she needs the planner to carry all her valuables in one go, so I hope the tote bag will help (photo to be sent via DM).
I’m also giving a Starbucks tote bag to @thegirlyoulove_, who said that she wants to give a gift to her friend @bundoktora. Your friend is lucky to have you, Jenny! (photo to be sent via DM)
I’m giving a box of Starbucks Christmas Blend Personal Drip Coffee to @09sunkissed, whose dad was recently promoted! We hope this special Christmas blend will help him with his new responsibilities (photo to be sent via DM).
Lastly, I’m giving a limited-edition Starbucks cup to @jubidoobidoo, who turned 2019 into an acronym! She writes about her sorrow and depression in her daily planner and I hope she can fill this cup with some tea or coffee to soothe her(photo to be sent via DM).
