Starbucks Philippines spreads the joy of early Christmas during their Christmas Grand Launch last October 29 and 30 at the Grand Atrium, Shangri-la Plaza Manila. All My Starbucks Rewards members are invited to join the event and they can enjoy 30% discount on past promotional merchandise, early access to Christmas merchandise and a preview of the 2017 Starbucks Planner.
My wife and I together with our youngest son decided to join this event to have a first-look of our much-awaited 2017 Starbucks Planner. We went there around 4 pm and there are many Starbucks aficionados like me who joined the event. We registered our name and account number at the registration table near the event entrance and we were given the Starbucks Planner Promo Card with one free sticker and the Starbucks Philippines Grand Launch passport to be stamped on every Cheer Station to receive a surprise gift.
Cheer Station 1: Take a Christmas Selfie Challenge
To earn your first stamp, you need to take a selfie with Starbucks Christmas Frappuccino and Starbucks Card. Post on your Facebook, Instagram or Tweeter account with the hashtags #StarbucksChristmasPH and #SipsOfCheer.
Cheer Station 2: Sips of Cheer
Take a sip of Starbucks newest Christmas beverage – Santa Hat Dark Mocha Frappuccino. Decadent dark mocha topped with a base of strawberry whipped cream, strawberry drizzle and a dollop of snowy white whipped cream to create a playful “Santa Hat”.
Cheer Station 3: Flavors of Christmas
It’s time to play! Get at least two (2) matches by flipping the cards and receive a gift from Starbucks. Each player will have three (3) turns only. You’ll get a stamp on your Cheer passport once you completed the activity. I’m not good at games but I still received a magnetic bookmark as a consolation prize.
Cheer Station 4: Celebrate our Beloved Christmas Blend
Christmas Blend showcased Starbucks artistry in roasting with an expert blend of lively Latin American beans and mellow Indonesia coffees. The finishing touch was the addition of rare, spicy Sumatra beans, painstakingly aged for three to five years. The interplay of flavors make it a full-bodied, spicy and rich cup of coffee.
Cheer Sation 5: Crafted by Hand and Heart
Extract your creative juice and show your artistic talent by designing a Starbucks Christmas card for your loved ones.
After completing all five stamps, you now have a chance to pick a special Starbucks prize. You can win Starbucks notebooks, tumblers, notepad, bags, tote bags, and other premium Starbucks items . You even have a chance to win a surpise special prize with your raffle stub.
You can relax while listening to their invited artist if you’re tired from walking around the venue and enjoying all the activities.
My wife and I really enjoyed all the activities that we’ve had at the Starbucks Christmas Grand Launch. Starbucks nailed it in manifesting the Christmas Spirit to all their Aficionados.
