Starbucks For Life is exactly what it sounds like — an online sweepstakes that gives out two grand prizes, which indeed give out free Starbucks for life (well, 30 years). But this promotion is bigger than just the two “golden tickets” they give out every year — plenty of Starbucks fans get freebies, Starbucks Stars, and other goodies during this wintertime event that went live on Nov. 28, 2023.

First things first — you’re going to want to sign up for the Starbucks Rewards program. It’s totally free, and long after the Starbucks For Life promo is over, you’ll be able to use it to get free Starbucks.

OK, are you ready to play? Get out your smartphone, tablet, or laptop, and get ready to play games and get some free Starbucks (maybe even for life!).

There are multiple ways to play and win Starbucks For Life. First, visit the Starbucks for Life website and sign in with your Starbucks account. From there, you get one daily entry and a chance to win any of the potential prizes.

You can earn additional entries into the sweepstakes by playing a special game, or by completing daily challenges and activities. These range from adding a specific amount of money to your Starbucks account to placing a Starbucks order during a specific timeframe. Completing these challenges gave you additional entries into the sweepstakes and more chances to win!

But you don’t even have to buy anything to play. At the website navigate to the “Alternative Method of Entry” section at the bottom of the site and follow the directions.

This year, every Monday during the promotion you can earn up to four entries by making two purchase transactions, or up to two free requests (earn 2 game plays per request), or a combination of a purchase and a free entry method for up to a total of four plays.

Good luck!
