Beijing Starbucks Tumblers!

Starbucks in Beijing is almost in every corner like in Manila. They are usually overpriced but still steaming with people. I have two cousins who collect Starbucks 4 bj tumblers items as a hobby. One of them collects city mugs while the other collects tumblers. They told me to keep them informed of any new mugs or tumblers or if I visit another city, to buy one if there’s a Starbucks there.

So.. how much does a Starbucks tumbler cost? RMB 95 or US$13.50 or Php617.50. Crazy right? But we each have our own fetishes. My cousin who collects tumblers has more than 40 of it already and she’s always checking the internet for new ones. So when I informed her that there are 6 new tumblers in Beijing, she asked me to buy 5 of them.

What makes them special you say? Who knows! All I know is they’re a very expensive collection.

  1. hahaha.. sure sure! i’ll send you an email with the price.. you just missed my friends who went home last week.

  2. I collect them too. I’m on a business trip in Shanghai and found out that buying tumblers here in China does not entitle you for a free drink unlike in other countries. Is this true?

  3. it depends on which location. I had a friend of mine buy tumblers in hangzhou and they gave her a free drink coupon valid only in Jiangsu and Shanghai province. I bought one in Xian as well and they gave me a coupon too. In Beijing, they don’t give any coupons. I was only able to get one last year coz I bought their 2008 planner
