Let me grant you a wish... a Starbucks Coffee 2010 Planner!!!

As the clock strikes twelve, watch as almost everything slowly turns more festive... out comes the reds, the greens and the whites.

Just like magic, happy holiday tunes starts to play putting everyone in a better mood as they make their Christmas lists.

In a couple of weeks, watch as friends and family exchange gifts over a delicious spread of only the season's best.

Best of all, the RED cups are HERE!!!... and they're here to stay up until January 6, 2010!!

This year, Starbucks Coffee is bringing back three of our well-loved holiday beverages namely, the Dark Cherry Mocha, the Peppermint Mocha and my personal favorite, the Toffee Nut Latte!

In addition to these highly sought-after drinks, be sure to try a couple of their plenty holiday food items such as the Creme Brulee Cheesecake, the delectable Chocolate Molten Cake, Paul's favorite the Christmas Turkey Chicken on Cranberry Bread and some returning favorites such as the Peppermint Brownie and the Toffee Nut Loaf.

There are actually 14 holiday food items according to Celine Clemente, who's a dear friend and Starbucks Coffee's ever-talented R&D specialist. It's a good thing that we have more than a month to enjoy them one by one as all of these items were carefully created to complete your coffee drinking experience at Starbucks.

The 2010 Planner

Of course, the highlight of celebrating Christmas at Starbucks Coffee here in the Philippines is the one and only..or shall I say, the three and all so pretty looking planners that are available beginning November 4, 2009!

Yes, beginning today, you can now indulge in your favorite holiday beverage, munch on one of the yummy food items and earn a sticker or two to be a couple of steps closer in bringing home one of the three Starbucks 2010 planners!

The planners comes in three lovely designs that features the different stages of the coffee bean. Browsing through the inside pages, you'll see the different things that I love about Starbucks Coffee: the beverage, the history, the partners, the innovations created and their global responsibility towards the environment, education, culture and the arts.

As an additional treat, this year's planner comes with a small booklet of coupons that you can use in certain months throughout the year!

The planner promotion is from November 4, 2009 to January 6, 2010. One sticker is awarded for each Starbucks beverage purchase. Customer must accumulate a total of seventeen (17) stickers (nine (9) Christmas beverage + eight (8) core beverages except bottled drinks) to redeem (1) Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2010 Planner.

Of course, for every redemption of the Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2010 Planner comes a donation to the continuous relief efforts for the Typhoon victims and to SparkHope – Starbucks flagship program for early childhood care and development in partnership with UNICEF.

Pretty easy huh?

Christmas is truly just around the corner and as my way of saying THANK YOU for all the support and love that you have sent my way, I would like to give out ONE (1) Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2010 Planner to a lucky reader!

  13. I never got the chance to get any of the previous planners released by starbucks. I guess it's time to get one, and I think getting it for free will be the best option for me to give it a shot. :D

  14. hey fran! i want to win one! why do i want the planner? well, if i do win the planner doesn't go to me. i'll give it to my hubby. :) he just got promoted and a new planner to start the year would be a great welcome for him :) at least he won't use those steno notebooks to write down the things he need to do everyday.

    i do hope you choose me (hehehe) it would be a great xmas present for him.

    I've always wanted to own a Starbucks Planner but I never get to complete my stickers every year (for 2 or 3 years already, it's always that way, the procrastinator in me). I hope I get to own one this year, for FREE (crossing fingers) :)

  21. The red cups are out alright! I welcome in the Christmas spirit with my favorite peppermint mocha! Times are hard and the drudgery of the daily grind can really get to me..but just like a wish granted...dropping by my favorite Starbucks store and curling up on a couch with my favorite cup of cheer...can make it all wisk away and bring me to my happy place. having a limited edition Starbucks planner can help me to remember these happy times and i can also jot down my thoughts...so even when am not curled up in my favorite place i can open my planner and read those passages. And it brings me to my happy place all over again =)

    ReplyDelete
  22. yay. Hurray for Starbucks planners and I think I find the selection gorgeous. I have been a planner freak the moment I stepped out in the corporate world. Back then, I only jot down skeds and reminders about work and social life stuff. Now, I add notes on pedia check-ups, deadlines on utilities/home repairs, mapping out family vacations, hubby's important scheds (he tends to forget), etc.

    Also, it's not just a planner for me. It's where I see my life is heading to...:)

  23. Hey Franny! I loooooooove Starbucks. You, me and Anika all know we owe the fact that we graduated from college to Starbucks! Hahaha, how else could we have weathered all the sleepless nights and the crazy IMC workload?

    I've always had no trouble collecting stickers for my planners. In a year I'd actually redeem about three of them. Haha! But I think it would be great to win one for once.

    ReplyDelete
  24. By the way, I am SO glad that they brought back the peppermint mocha. was it last year that they didn't have it? It just really didn't feel like christmas without peppermint mocha! :s

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi! I saw your link from Michicoo's plurk. Anyways, though I'm trying to collect the stickers, I want to join your giveaway.

    I have two reasons why I want the Starbucks planner: first, I haven't been able to redeem any Starbucks planner because I failed to collect enough stickers for it; and second, I got pregnant and couldn't drink coffee for nine months. It's only now that I've been savoring its smell and taste. Is that valid? I hope so! :D

    I hope you don't mind if I placed your link in my blog. :D

    - Did you know that Scandinavia has the highest per capita annual coffee consumption at 26.4 pounds followed by Italy at 10 pounds?
    - Regular coffee drinkers have about 1/3 less asthma symptoms than those non-coffee drinkers. So says a Harvard researcher who studied 20,000 people.
    - Hawaii features an annual Kona festival, coffee picking contest. Each year, the winner becomes a state celebrity. ;-)

    I know that you don't know me but I'm very interested in this post of yours!

    I'm not that Sbucks fan but I like it :)
    The reason I joined your contest and why I deserved to win is that:
    I really need to organize myself right now.And that Sbucks planner might help me to be update and find myself.

    That's all.
    Trying my luck on this.
    Have a good day!

  35. I've been a Starbucks planner collector since it started. scribbling thoughts and memories in it has been an addicting habit. it's great that "s" as i call it, has come up with a newer design and format. Kudos! and also. "the best part of wakin' up is starbucks in my cup!"

  43. Why do I want a planner? Simple, I love Starbucks planners. I can't start my year properly without a Starbucks planner, I have this entire ritual that I go through every year with my new Starbucks planner. It just doesn't feel right without it.

    I love Starbucks planners because they allow me to be me. OC-wise, creative-tendencies-wise, forgetfulness-wise.

    I love it!

    Here's why I need to win this:

    As a teacher, I need to have a plan. I need to have a schedule and to be organized to be effective. When I was younger, my memory was good enough to do my scheduling and planning. But now....I NEED A PLANNER!!!!

  47. Time and again, we often hear the cliche that the best things in life are free. Should I ever win the Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2010 Planner, which I dearly hope, I would definitely consider it as one of the best experiences I'll ever have. Something that I'll be forever grateful for not only to the Giver but also to the instrument.

  55. I deserve to win the 2010 Planner because I missed the 2009 Starbucks Planner! I was in hiatus for 9 months- from Nov. 4 last year (the launch of Starbucks Planner 2010) until August 17 this year due to a very difficult pregnancy. I've been out-of-touch, so to speak, and so when I returned to work, I felt something was missing --- Oh yeah, I have no journal to write on :-)

  59. Hi me too, I love Starbucks including the planner of course. But the past two years were a disappointment so I just bought my planner outside of Starbucks. I always tell that to the cashier of every Starbucks I went into. And what sucks most is that the Peppermint Mocha was not included in the choices for the holiday drink. Anyway, am gonna check out these planners and I will surely buy if its really gorgeous eventhough I already bought a planner for 2010.

  68. I would love to receive the free Starbucks planner because a planner is an essential part of my daily life. I embellish each page with stickers and illustrations. And aside from writing plans for the day, I also include remarkable happenings (like unforgettable dinners and purchases). I also write my daily Bible quotes that I encounter in my daily Bible reading. So whenever I flip through my planner pages, I get an instant moral boost. I also send the quotes to friends when they feel down. :)

  71. Hi Fran!

    Christa is such a Starbucks planner girl. She has been collecting these for years. Well, when I was still working, Starbucks was in my building and of course, I could afford to go have coffee every day. Now that I'm home-based, it's a little harder and more expensive to buy Starbucks everyday (although I wish I could because I so love the Christmas flavors they have esp. the peppermint one). So for this year, I am hoping I could get her the planner without it costing me so much. As a mom to 4 kids and one with a limited budget, my priority this Christmas is putting good food on the table. A free Starbucks planner will be a wonderful gift I could put under the Christmas tree for my girl.

    I really want to have this planner for myself unfortunately I can't because I'm currently living abroad. I have the 2007 and 2008 planner but missed the 2009. I hope I won't miss the 2010. *hint hint*

    If ever you decide not to make me miss the 2010 planner (which will definitely make me happy) you can contact me at owbee08(at)yahoo(dot)com. I can also be found at My Linguistics.

  74. Hi Fran! I visit your blog everyday because as a home based worker and single mom, you really help keep me up to date and it's like I go places just sitting here and reading your blog. Keep up the good work and keep on inspiring us.

    And if you decide to reward me the planner... it will really help me a lot with my schedules since I handle every thing in the house, from bills payments, church events organizing and up to my son's regular pedia visits :)

    Thanks and more success and more readers for you! :)

  78. I really need this planner! I need to remember all my deadlines for work, my son's pedia appointments and my friends' birthdays. Plus I need something that I can jot down notes on when ideas and tasks pop into my head.
    Really crossing my fingers for this!

  79. My schedule as a working mom is toxic. That's why most of the time I find myself forgetting important dates. This is where the Starbucks Planner would come in. It will be great to have it as my very reliable companion.

    Hi Fran =)
    Living a rewarding life may be easy but we have this tendency to make it harder than it has to be and thus, our complicated lives. Planners come in handy to make our lives simpler.
    After being diagnosed with cancer a few years back, I have realized that we are only assured of the 'today'.
    I don't have a hectic schedule to write in the planner since I'm still in the process of recovery. I'll be using that planner however, for my daily recollections and as an inspiration that at this point in my life, I remembered being a kid and asked for what I really want. =)

    Thanks and tomorrow again! =)

  84. Every year since 2003, I made sure that I had my own planner (earlier than everyone else did) plus one or two more planners which I gave out to family/friends. I did everything I could to complete the sticker booklet ASAP - to the point of buying 3 drinks at a time.

    This year though, I may not be able to acquire one since I was diagnosed with an illness that prohibits me from drinking coffee and dairy products. So if I want a planner, it's either I buy drinks for my friends so I'd have stickers, or beg my friends to give me their stickers!

  86. I deserve to win a planner because i am a Wedding Planner/Organizer...What's so coincidence of always having those meetings with my brides right at the Starbucks Subic! The coffee does not only awaken our creativity and senses but helps us alleviating the stress the event planning brings us. Plus, thanks to it's anti-oxidant substance that helps us becoming youthful and glowing as the D-day is nearing.

  88. This is my 3rd time to post a comment and I'm determined to post a comment everyday. I'm determined to have this planner that I believe I deserve to win. Why do I deserve to win this? Oh well, let me think --- Ok, I just recently gave birth to our youngest daughter, Nala, whom I delivered after 7 months of just lying on the bed and staring at our ceiling. That was how delicate my pregnancy was.

    So you ask, what does my reason have to do with my deserving to win? Well...I miss having a journal for a year and I so miss writing on it :-)

  95. Hi, just trying out my luck:) I really want to have this planner because I want to give it to my bestfriend..recently, she doesn't want to talk to me because of well, grades:p She's my thesis-mate and a big part of our grade was based on our blogs regarding our thesis, which I always forget to post on. She wasn't able to get the grade in order to receive an award, so I want to give her something that would remind us both to blog every time, from now on. I really hope to win, or at least have my bestfriend back:(

    Merry Christmas and thanks for the chance:)

  109. We lost everything to typhoon Ondoy. Even my 2008 and 2009 SB planner were not spared
    from Ondoy's wrath. Goodbye memories. Every year, I collect stickers just to get a hold
    of the planners. But this year, I have to make a sacrifice. Instead of shelling out 2000+ pesos
    for those starbucks frappucinos, I would rather use the money to repair our appliances. Every
    single peso counts. The planner will be my first cherished possession if ever I'll win.

    Also, because of what happened, we are already planning to rebuild / renovate our house.
    With this, i would like to document and record every progress / improvement made to our house
    using the planner.

  131. I finally got to "feel" the 2010 Starbucks Planner! I went to a nearby Starbucks store during our lunch break a while ago and it was my first time to see and touch the 3 much-coveted planners. I held one so tightly, closed my eyes and made a wish. Then, I put back the planner to its original place and got out of the store. I guess you already know what I wished for :-)

  133. Hi Fran!

    Morning!:)

    I am hyperacidic though I'm a coffee lover since I was a child:) I love the smell of coffee and I can't help but to stop and turn to the scent. When I was young, I can't afford to buy my own cup from Starbucks but having a sip from my sister was heaven at that time:) Now, why do I deserve to have this planner? I won't hard sell myself because if I won't win it simply means that someone is far more deserving to have it:) I'm determined to have the Starbucks planner this year and I started to collect stickers already since day. If ever I will win this nice contest, I will give it to my partner who has always been patiently looking as I drink my Starbucks coffee. You see, Mienne has GERD and she is not allowed to drink coffee but she's always there to be with me and we spend hours talking and spending quality time together. My Starbucks planner last year was a diary of all the times that Mienne and I have spent together. It would be nice if she could have hers to and we'll make memories together and be able to write everything down by next year:) Our journey as lifetime partners is like a cup of Starbucks coffee - the more you drink, the more you crave for it; it will eventually be finsihed but there's always tomorrow to have more...just like us...the more we spend time together, the deeper our relationship goes; days may end but there are a lot of tomorrows for us:) A lot of Starbucks branches have seen my journey with Mienne and I swear, there will be a lot more...forever:)

  137. Christmas, to a variety of different people, may mean a new-found love, a long-lost friend, or forgiveness between a mom and a daughter. Christmas naturally brings a feeling of happiness. It has the power to wipe away the sadness brought about by tragedies and calamities (remember the typhoon victims) that may have transpired throughout the year.

    More than the universality of love, Christmas equally (if not more importantly) brings HOPE to a lot of people. As we dawn together to the beginning of a new year, Christmas is the yearly high that guarantees us that as another year comes to an end, a new one opens... akin to the warm sunshine that breaks the stillness of a cold night.

    A new planner may not guarantee only happy memories for the year to come, but it does promise a whole new set of experiences and lessons to learn (and re-learn). A new planner may mean a new friend, or a new job (especially for newly-grads like me), a new found faith (or perhaps a renewed one), a new song, poem, story, or work of art... or simply 365 new days for building memories with the people who matter in your life. A new planner means 365 days of hope... 365 days to share... each turn of a page implies that we should never give up amidst life's challenges because there will always be a new day, another chance... another take at making things better.

  144. Hi Fran,

    Another day of chance..

    I will be destined in our province for a month, which gives me a slim chance of completing the card. Sadly, we still don't have Starbucks in our place.

    Hoping for luck.

  146. I want the planner for my sister.She loves starbucks planners.

    Stumbled upon this quote and i wanna share it lang.. its credited with someone named iistaraicy:

    "sabi nila pag gwapo ang lalake..
    maganda yung GF, almost perfect pa nga daw..
    pero pansin niyo, pag ang girl maganda,
    hindi lahat ng nagiging bf niya gwapo?
    ang girl kasi, mas tinitignan yung ugali than looks...
    pero ang boy, basta maganda at malaki ang CHURVA, kahit ugaling impakta at utak shunga-shunga,

    pwede na!"

    Nothing. Just found it so funny..


    Hate me boys! hahaha..
    it's quite true!!!!

  147. Wanna share this travel idea with you frannywanny..

    http://www.clickthecity.com/travel/?p=5540

    It's like paradise (base on the pictures). But with the prices and the fact that it's where Ryan proposed to Judai, I think it really is paradise.

    It's a great idea for your honeymoon. I'm still weighing my budget. It's quite expensive for me! Hahaha..

  148. I think I deserve this starbucks planner because I can not complete the sb card because I’m not that rich to spend drinks and lattes everyday. I used to complete those stickers but now, I have to save my money. Last year I almost completed the stickers, I just did not have money for the last stickers. I hope I can get this one for free because I love sb and I will take care of the starbucks planner. I will be so thankful if I win and I will tell this to my friends and family.

  149. I deserve this Starbucks Planner because I’ve been completing Starbucks Planner since 2004. And every year I don’t just complete one sb card. I want to have a lot sb planner, so I can use one and I can give my mom or sister the other one. So this year I think I deserve a free planner for I’ve been loyal to starbucks. If I win, this will be my favorite Starbucks Planner ever. And oh, the starbucks planner since 2004, 2005 and so on, I’m still keeping these, though those are already used.

  151. I believe each year, Starbucks is creating a way to help others -- and that is through the planner. I admit that I do wait for this season, yet I cannot complete any card. I did have one planner, but I had it as a gift for my debut (year 2008). It brings me joy that when I see someone crave for a planner, because they are not aware that they have been helping those in the Sparkhope. And that's what I've wanted to do.. because the planner isn't only because you're cool after having it, but the joy you bring to the beneficiary of the planners.:)

    Summer: “I just woke up one day and knew.”
    Tom: “Knew what?”
    Summer: “What I was never sure of with you.”

    from (500) Days of Summer

    After dating Summer for more than a year,
    It broke my heart

  164. I deserve to win because I tend to forget things... and I am a person who doesn't want to forget things. As a person who loves to chronicle life events, it's very helpful to have a "companion" that can help me not forget.

    ...and also because I can't afford the coffee at Starbucks. It's sad, but it's true.

  165. I would love to win this so I can plan out weekend or one-day trips (aside from pedia check-ups, errands & hubby-related chuvas) with my 2 year old boy. He's my 1st-born & I would love to discover new places with him (fit for his age) as well as make him a well-rounded person like attending kiddie workshops and art stuff.

    When you have your firstborn, I feel idealistic and like any moms out there, I want to give him the best the world has to offer. I'm not going to deprive him of that.

    I don't want desk calendars or those mini-planners. They're not that handy nor offer enough space (respectively). :)

  169. I would love to have one of these planners. Walking around carrying one of these will truly make my crazy daily schedule a piece of cake. I can't find any planners as good as Starbuck's. Some are too big while some lack the details I need.

    Having one of these will make me belong to the elite (those who have the money to afford numbers of Starbucks beverages, that is, hehe)

I also recruit the person I know to try them and it was a hit. Lastly, It's because I never had a chance to own one because before I never the stickers. I'm desperately need to have one for this may be the start to keep my plans organize and what better way to start this is from my favorite coffee shop which is STARBUCKS!

    My eldest daughter who's 9 years old just wrote her first entry on her "Up Planner" which she won during an Up event at the Glorietta mall. I was happy seeing her starting to be interested in writing or maintaining a planner. I could see myself in her. It's almost the end of the year, yet it was her first time to write on it. Well, at least, she has her own planner to write on :-)

    (2) I need a 'real' planner...something that won't run out of battery like my pda.

    "Manny “Pambansang Kamao” Pacquiao became the first fighter ever to win world titles in seven boxing divisions after stopping Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico to win the welterweight title, via technical knockout.

    Kenny Bayless, the referee of the match, stopped the fight at 2:04-minute mark of the 12th round declaring Pacquiao the winner in the fight held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada."

I've been wanting to have a starbucks planner ever since but really can't get it coz I go often to Starbucks due to being busy... and I guess I should win that planner coz I'm busy? HAHAHA. I mean, the Starbucks planner isn't really just an ordinary planner and maybe if I'll win your giveaway, I could go to Starbucks most of the time already coz of the coupons. I rarely go to Starbucks due to being a student and sometimes, being a student, allowance won't really allow me to enjoy Starbucks everyday. How's that? HAHA. I wish I could have work already after graduating so that I can be so addicted to Starbucks coz their coffees are the best :)

  200. I think my mama deserves to win the Starbucks planner 2010 because of the following reasons :

    1. She loves to go to every Starbucks store she sees abroad

    2. She waited for a Starbucks shop in Europe to open for her to buy a mug

    3. Last but not the least, look at the link below, since she's sooo into Starbucks, even this one she has to check out.
