It has been almost half a decade since I left the Green Siren HQ but for me; Starbucks Coffee, wherever I may be in the world, will always be my 3rd place. Take for example two Fridays ago, I was feeling quite sad as Paul was still in Manila and I was unfortunately on my own and down with a bad case of cough and colds. I really didn't want to bother my friends who obviously were busy with their own lives so it was indeed a very lonely week for me. On my 6th day alone, I couldn't take it anymore and found comfort in our nearby Starbucks store as I people-watched while enjoying my Mango Passion Frappuccino. Somehow, after finishing my drink and spending a good amount of time in there, I went home feeling a teeny-weeny bit happier.
I have my own Starbucks card here in Singapore and I also got one during my short visit home a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, there are only two generic-looking designs available for the Philippine version but knowing the creativity of our PH team, I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing more festive card designs soon.
Now, let us take a closer look at the card:
As soon as you enjoy your welcome drink, you can now watch out for all the other treats Starbucks has in store for you such as:
- your very own birthday treat with a complimentary slice of cake
- Coffee Stars which will entitle you to more rewards such as another Grande sized beverage, a free 250g Starbucks whole bean or a 12-pack Starbucks VIA Ready Brew.
I love how the Starbucks card has no expiry date provided you use it within 3 years. The only drawback is that the cards can't be used across the different markets in the region thus the growing collection of Starbucks cards in my wallet.
This is perfect for those who frequents Starbucks Coffee as not only will you get your daily cup of coffee, you get to earn points and claim your complimentary cup soon too! I also think this makes a great gift, agree? Head out now and get your own Starbucks Card!
