First look: Coffee Bean's 2017 planner

MANILA, Philippines – It's that time of the year again! With the new year coming up, it's time to start collecting stamps and stickers to get your fresh, new 2017 planner. (SNEAK PEEK: 2017 planners and diaries!)

Among the planners you can get in exchange for buying drinks this year is the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) 2017 Giving Journal.

The 2017 Giving Journal comes in 4 colors – rose, purple, gray, and turquoise – and its hardcover is embossed with a different symbol, along with the journal's title.

Inside, there are coupons for food and drinks at CBTL, weekly views and notes in one spread, and a quote for every week.

Each Giving Journal redeemed will also help the scholars of the Real LIFE Foundation, which provides educational assistance for the poor.

Customers who want a copy of the 2017 Giving Journal have to collect 12 stamps, with each stamp representing a corresponding drink.

However, buying CBTL's Single Serve Beverage System, their coffee maker, gets you a planner without having to collect any stamps. On the other hand, buying a box of the capsules for the Single Serve Beverage System gets you two stamps.

Stamps for the 2017 Giving Journal can be redeemed at any CBTL store starting October 22.

If you're not sure about getting CBTL's planner, we had a look at a few other 2017 planners too. Watch our review below!
