Coffee Bean and Starbucks Planners 2018

Year end is just around the corner, and many of us are likely looking forward to making plans for the new year.  So as we welcome the most wonderful time of the year, we also welcome the “planner promo season” of coffee shops in the country. 🙂 Planner collectors and coffee addicts are surely in the know.

I’m not a fan of coffee shop planners because I depend on my Google Calendar for schedules and reminders.  But since I am a fan of Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf‘s Iced Blended Mocha and Starbucks‘ Christmas special Peppermint Mocha,  I thought that I might as well keep a planner promo card and have it stamped each time I crave for a millennial type of caffeine fix. Yes, I like my caffeine fix cold and sweet. 🙂  The planners are a great Christmas gift idea (either for yourself or for your friends and loved ones).

Coffee Bean’s Holiday Giving Tradition Journal

There are four designs to choose from for CBTL’s journal this year.  Aside from green, blue and grey covers, CBTL offers a journal with a cover that can be customized by artistic owners. I am actually torn between the grey design and the one with a customizable cover.

CBTL’s planner is not called the “Giving Journal” for nothing.  This annual planner promo is tied up to an advocacy to help the Real LIFE Foundation, the direct beneficiary of the Giving Journal.  Every Giving Journal redeemed helps CBTL to send more Real LIFE Foundation scholars to school.

Starbucks Planner 2018

I know not many people enjoy the taste of peppermint + coffee, but I really look forward to this once-a-year holiday peppermint mocha drink of Starbucks every year. 🙂  It’s actually one of the reasons I got a Starbucks Christmas Traditions Promo Card.  As much as I get excited when I start to see Christmas decors at the beginning of BER months,  I feel happy once the coffee shop’s Holiday featured beverages are out. 🙂

Other holiday beverage flavors are Vanilla Nougat Latte and Toffee Nut Crunch Latte.


The 2018 Starbucks planner comes in two designs and sizes to fit user’s preference. It also comes with a desk calendar and a stencil that doubles as a ruler.
