For many Americans, Starbucks isn’t just a coffee shop. It’s a way of life. Sure, it’s easy to put on a pot of coffee in the morning, but who wants plain old Folgers coffee when you could start your day with a Caramel Macchiato or Double Double Fudge Bar Frappuccino. With so many delicious coffee drinks to choose from, it’s no wonder millions of Americans choose Starbucks for their daily coffee fix.

If Starbucks is your way of life, we're not judging. It's ours, too. We're already subscribed to our Starbucks emails, so we're always up-to-date with awesome tips (like free Starbucks). What are you waiting for? Subscribe here.

A daily trip to Starbucks can be pricey, though. It’s not hard to plop down $5 on just one coffee. What if you never had to pay for your coffee ever again? Wouldn’t it be nice to have free Starbucks for life? The good news is that now you can. The popular coffee chain is currently running its “Starbucks for Life” program. This program has gone on for the past two years, but only during the holiday season. This year, you don’t have to wait until Christmas to try your luck. You can play Starbucks for Life: Summer Edition now and possibly make your dream a reality!

Can you order five espressos a day for the next 70 years? Not exactly. As with every contest and sweepstakes, there are rules and restrictions. Starbucks for Life is awarded as a daily credit for one free food or beverage item for 30 years. So if you’re only 18 years old, then 30 years isn’t likely going to be the rest of your life. Starbucks Evenings foods and beverage items are excluded from the program. Also, each credit expires in 24 hours, so either use it or lose it. But still, 30 years of free Starbucks is an awesome prize! The retail value of this prize is estimated at $54,275. You could get a nice car for that amount of money!

Even if you only win one year of free Starbucks, the approximate retail value is $1,642.50. A month’s worth of free Starbucks come with a value of $139.50. A week’s worth of coffee is valued at $31.50. Wow, is that really how much your coffee addiction is costing you? This goes to show that you could probably save a bunch of money if you kicked your Starbucks habit altogether, but we won’t go there.

If you’re a frequent Starbucks customer, you’ll want to take advantage of this special promotion. If you win, you’ll receive your credits around November 1, 2016. Click here to view the official rules.
