It might just be the right time to take that Starbucks addiction of yours to the next level.
If you still regularly gripe about the coffee chain's new rewards program, now might finally be the right time to change all of that for good. If you're one of seven lucky people in the U.S. and Canada, you might just win free Starbucks for life.
Starting August 2, anyone who uses the Starbucks Rewards program (and you really should use it if you're a semi-regular Starbucks customer, as it costs you nothing but earns you the occasional free drink) will score one free game piece when they purchase anything at a store using their Starbucks registered card or mobile app. You can enter twice per day, and if either of those purchases are for more than $10, you'll get an extra game piece. This is what the board looks like:
Here are all the prizes you can win:
- Five U.S. customers and two Canadian ones will luck out with Starbucks for Life, the grand prize.
- 25 U.S. customers and five Canadian ones will win Starbucks for a Year.
- 125 lucky ducks in the U.S. and 25 in Canada get Starbucks for a Week.
- You can also win instant Bonus Stars -- depending on your prize, you might get 125, 25, 10 or five Stars added to your account. Gold Members get a free food or drink item after every 125 stars that they earn.
We don't mean to crush your dreams -- free Starbucks is free Starbucks -- but, according to Delish, "for life" in Starbucks-speak means only 30 years. Apparently they are expecting the winners to overdo it on their daily Trenta Frappuccino? We have no idea what the logic is here.
Also, you can only get one free drink or food item each day, so if you're one of the lucky ones, make sure you choose wisely!
