(WFLA) — Yep, you read that right. Starbucks for Life is back for the third year and runs through January 16. WFLA News Channel 8’s Lila Gross has all details on how to get this awesome treat.
If you’re a winner, you’ll get a daily credit for one food or beverage item, every day, for 30 years. But, the credits expire daily and they are not eligible for alcoholic beverages.
Starbucks said the grand prize is worth an estimated $54,000.
How to win:
Collect all the game pieces in a row on a digital game board by making purchases with your registered Starbucks card or mobile app. Then you can redeem plays (collect digital pieces) by logging onto starbucksforlife.com.
Starbucks said, “Members can complete 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.”
You can also potentially win other offers. Starbucks explains the four exclusive offers:
