Anyone who is addicted to this high-end coffee brand knows all too well how much it costs them each week, month or year.
In an effort to thank those customers, or 10 of them in the U.S., Starbucks is offering a chance to win your favorite addiction free for your entire life, which the coffee purveyor values at around $54,000.
Keep in mind that in Starbucks eyes, you’re entire life only lasts 30 years, which is how long you’ll receive one free food or beverage item every day. Younger winners may cry foul, but older customers may revel in not having to pay for coffee in their golden years.
Winners not only get free java, but they also receive the Ultimate Starbucks Card, which is made of 10K hammered gold, will have the winner’s name engraved and has an estimated retail value of $5,000.
Now through January 5, any customers who use their Starbucks gift card or mobile app gets a chance to win every day. That means for people who hit Starbucks twice a day, they’ll double their chances of winning. Once you pay, you’ll get a unique code on your receipt that you enter online at starbucks.com/play. You can only play twice a day, so save the money and skip the third round of caffeine.
The winning doesn’t stop there. You may not be one of the ten lucky winners in the U.S. to score Starbucks for life, but you’ll also have a chance to win one of 482,000 instant prizes.
