When it seems like everyone is finding a way to escape the blazing summer heat this past few week, Starbucks has prepared some instant fun adventures with the new summer-inspired Starbucks Cards. These new cards’ mission is to help you enjoy the moment with faster and rewarding transactions with the global coffee brand. Now with an online reloading feature, your Starbucks Card serves as a stored-value, rewards and loyalty card all rolled into one. Make sure to bring them along whether you’re going out of town or just hanging around the city.
Just a glimpse to these new cards will rise up one’s summer vibe due to the summer scene presented on each of them. Featuring three new designs, this year’s Starbucks summer cards will be a surefire among the coffee-lovers especially the card-collectors.
Starbucks Summer Beach Card
Inspired by the fun time basking by the beach, the Starbucks Summer Beach Card brings you to that moment when you pulled off your swimwear and matched it with cool flip-flops, then hit the beach with your squad and had the best laugh like there’s no tomorrow.
Starbucks Wave Mini Card
Catch and pocket the perfect wave like a pro with the Wave Mini Card. The image of the perfect wave displayed on this card invites you to an exhilarating and adrenaline-pumping adventure.
Starbucks Frappuccino® Card
Starbucks introduces a unique card that not only comes on a fun-size, it’s a die cut card that allows you to take your favorite refreshing drink anytime, anywhere. Hang it on your key holder and you’ll have the best companion that never had.
Starbucks Summer Beach card, Wave Mini Card and the Frappuccino® Card can be activated with ₱300, ₱500 and ₱1000, respectively starting April 19, 2016, in your favorite Starbucks store.
“The Starbucks Card provides a convenient payment method, especially now with our new online reloading feature where customers can reload their cards anytime, anywhere,” said Keith Cole, head of marketing at Rustan Coffee Corporation.
Online reloading feature is way easier than coping with the summer’s heat! Users just have to log into their Starbucks accounts and reload their cards using a Visa or MasterCard credit card or a debit card issued in the Philippines.
