Starbucks lovers have a big reason to rejoice this holiday season: the opportunity to win a free drink every day for 30 years.

The 'Starbucks for Life' sweepstakes runs through Jan. 16 and anyone who has a Starbucks Reward card in participating locations can enter to win. Five US customers will win the grand prize of Starbucks for Life, 25 will win Starbucks for a year, 125 will win Starbucks for a month and 500 will win Starbucks for a week.

Eligible Starbucks Rewards™ members can earn game plays when they make a purchase* using either their registered Starbucks card or the Starbucks® app in participating stores.

Members can redeem their game plays and collect digital game pieces by logging on to www.starbucksforlife.com . Starbucks Rewards™ members may earn up to two game plays per day by making an eligible purchase transaction with a registered Starbuck card or app.

This is the third year for the Starbucks contest and some new additions include competing in challenges found within the game to earn extra game plays. Examples of challenges include “Jump the Line,” which rewards customers for making a purchase via mobile order, and “Hot Streak,” which provides three extra plays if a purchase is made five days in a row.

Also new this year is the ability to trade three duplicate game pieces for one new game play.
