It’s that time of year when we celebrate good cheers along with the holiday season. Friends and loved ones gather together as Philippines celebrate the longest Christmas season.
Malls in particular are filled with busy shoppers completing their list of Christmas gifts and as Christmas day draws near, the feeling of goodness only grows stronger too. ‘Giving good’ becomes a habit, as more people exchange smiles and conversations, and join in the season’s heart-warming traditions.
“The holiday season is a time for coming together and sharing goodwill. In our stores, we encourage these simple acts of kindness, in recognition of those who spend their time with us and those who embody generosity during this season,” said Keith Cole, Starbucks Philippines head of marketing.
With the cheers of Christmas spirit and the habit of ‘giving good’, Starbucks will start sending cheers with its biggest present to coffee lovers: A year’s worth of coffee for lucky customers bringing home the Starbucks 2018 Planner.
Up the Ante of Christmas with Starbucks
Starbucks enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that there will be twenty (20) winners to bring home a year’s worth of Starbucks Grande handcrafted beverages and twenty (20) more will receive a month’s worth of Grande handcrafted beverages of their choice.
Exciting prizes are up for grabs for holders of the special edition Starbucks Kape Vinta Card, exclusively released with the Starbucks 2018 Planners.
