I've always enjoyed the ice blended coffee of The Coffee Bean && Tea Leaf more than Starbucks. Even their food tastes better. I particularly like their Guiltless Chocolate Delight, Chef's Tuna, and Sardine and Garlic Linguine. Since I always dine at their Newport Mall branch, I decided to buy a Swirl Rewards Card loyalty and cash card which allows you to earn points to spend right away, load cash to use for future purchases, as well as enjoy free Wifi in all their branches. It only costs P195 which is a steal since it doesn't have any expiration date.
The good thing about this loyalty card is that you don’t have to build up thousands of points over months or years to get your reward. You can likewise load credit at all The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf stores. Every P100 you spend using cash or credit card earns you 5 points (every 1 point is equivalent to P1).
To track how many points you've earned, register your Swirl Card at http://www.swirlrewards.com.ph/default.aspx.
