Have you always dreamed of free Starbucks? Well, you could be in luck. As part of its 2018 holiday promotion, the mega coffee chain is giving customers the opportunity to win free Starbucks for life, as well as other prizes.

With the promotion, you can win one of the following 10 prizes: Starbucks for Life; Starbucks for a Year; Starbucks for Six Months; Starbucks for Three Months; Starbucks for a Month; 1,000 Bonus Stars; 500 Bonus Stars; 250 Bonus Stars; 125 Bonus Stars; and Starbucks for Life Coffee Collection.

The goal of the game is to get three game pieces of the same kind. In addition, you can win instant prizes. You can get game plays one of two ways: by making a purchase using a digital Starbucks card (one game play) or by submitting an entry form at

To play, head to, sign in to your Starbucks Rewards account and hit Let’s Begin. Follow the onscreen instructions to play the game and collect matching game pieces in order to win prizes. On your first sign in, you’ll get one free play. I got one game piece in the Starbucks for Life category, meaning I need just two more in order to be drinking Pike Place roast until the day I die.

The game runs until Dec. 31, 2018, at 11:59pm PT. The terms state that instant win prizes include: a coupon for 50% off any breakfast sandwich or sous vide egg bites (25,000); free brewed coffee (40,000); free bakery item (45,000); BOGO on any Grande or larger holiday beverage (45,000); 50% off any Grande or larger espresso after 2pm local time (40,000); coupon for a bakery item for $1 with the purchase of an espresso (25,000); 50 bonus Stars (100,000); and 10 bonus stars (1,289,475).

If you’re a frequent Starbucks goer, this promotion could definitely be worth playing. Or, even if you’re not a big fan, it could be worth playing in the chance you become a lifelong Starbucks goer.
