The contest, which began on November 27 and runs through December 31, is open to anyone signed up for its Starbucks Rewards program. Once you're a member, head over to StarbucksforLife.com for all the intricate details of how to enter to win Starbucks for Life (actually, one item per day for 30 years), or other prizes.
It's a little complicated, though, so here are the basics:
When you sign in, you'll get one Game Play. This means either you win an instant prize or you collect a Game Piece. When you make a purchase using your Rewards Card or app, you'll get another Game Play. When you collect three identical Game Pieces, you can win a prize. You can collect two Game Plays a day.
You can earn bonus Game Plays a different way each week. This week, it's by buying your order in advance using Mobile Order & Pay. Next week, you can get three bonus plays by ordering that way three times in a row. And you have to check the rules, because everything else gets more convoluted after that.
In addition to the Starbucks for Life prize, you can also win Starbucks for a month, three months, six months, or a year. You have an even better chance of winning Bonus Stars to use toward free treats.
Because of lawyers, you can get Game Plays without making a purchase, just check the rules for details on how to do it (warning, it seems time-consuming!).
Good luck! And may the Frappuccino odds be ever in your favor.
