How the Starbucks for Life Game Works:

Visit www.starbucksforlife.com.

Login to play.  You must be a member of Starbucks Rewards, which is free.

Once logged in, you play the Game by “tapping” the snow globe to reveal Game pieces.

Collect three (3) different Game pieces, and you’ll win the prize associated with those pieces.

Game pieces can also be instant win game pieces – in which case you’ll win the prize shown!

How to Earn Game Plays

There are 3 ways to earn game plays.

Way #1)  Make purchases.
You can make up to two separate Starbucks purchases per day, and each purchase will earn you a Game play.

Way #2)  Request a Free Play.
You can request a free game play here: https://www.starbucksforlife.com/#oamoe.  Fill out a form to request a Game piece, and Starbucks will send it to you via email.

There is a limit of earning 2 plays per day total – either by purchase, free play, or combined.  So for example if you make a purchase to earn one Game play, you can only request one free Game play that day.

Way #3)  Complete Challenges
By completing Challenges, you can earn bonus Game plays.  You can receive up to thirty-five (35) bonus Game plays from Challenges.

Challenges are little tasks to complete, and come in two flavors:

Challenges that are free to do – such as hings like having coffee with a friend, or practice a random act of kindness.  These work on the honor system.

Challenges that require a purchase – such as making a Starbucks purchase three days in a row, or making purchases from two different Starbucks locations, etc.

In either case, by completing the Challenges, you’ll earn bonus entries.

Note: most Challenges are available to do any time, but some special ones are only available on certain days.
