We've said it once, twice, a million times, and it neither gets old, nor ever less true: New Yorkers and coffee are married to each other, for good and forever, for better or worse. 

It's science. It's a fact. It's an unshakeable truth, something that rarely comes with surprise. 

Today might change that for you, though.Are you sitting down? You might want to.

Starbucks is offering a lifetime supply of free drinks to a lucky 7 winners of their sweepstakes.

According to this press release, starting August 2nd (yesterday), Starbucks Rewards members can play a limited summer edition of the “Starbucks for Life” sweepstakes. 

By buying stuff at Starbucks, you can earn up to two plays of their game per day, but you have to have a Starbucks card. So if you haven’t gotten one yet, now might be the time.

You can then redeem those games here if you're in the U.S. and here (if you're in Canada) for participation in the sweepstakes and a chance to win your lifetime supply of caffeinated delight.


The sweepstakes offers more than just a lifetime supply of drinks though, so don’t fret if you don’t win that one. The complete list of prizes are:

-7 customers (five in the U.S. and two in Canada) will win the grand prize of Starbucks for Life

-30 customers (25 in the U.S. and 5 in Canada) will win Starbucks for a Year

-150 customers (125 in the U.S. and 25 in Canada) will win Starbucks for a Month

-550 customers (500 in the U.S. and 50 in Canada) will win Starbucks for a Week

Aside from these prizes, instant-win Bonus Stars in increments of 125, 25, 10, and 5 Stars will be awarded to Starbuck’s loyal customers. 

We've had our own gripes with Starbucks' loyalty program in the past. It's been shoddy to say the least, but maybe this might fix all that is wrong in this over-caffeinated world? Who knows?! 

So two things: if you don’t have a Starbucks card, go get one today, and if you do, start playing.
