Speaking of Starbucks for Life… What is it and when is it?

Starbucks for Life is a game that where Rewards members can earn game plays by making purchases with a registered Starbucks Card or in the app. Rewards members can also score “free” entry codes daily without making a purchase by following the directions on the official rules page.

The most coveted prize is a daily credit for 30 years of one free Starbucks food or beverage item ($61,242 value!) – WOW!

Hip2Save readers have scored some awesome prizes in the past!😍

I’ve played twice every day and I am at 570 stars! (400-star win plus 170 in smaller instant star wins)


So far I’ve gotten 75 stars, a donation of 5 meals for a charity, and also won one of the Starbucks For Life gift sets, which I think is a tumbler, bag of coffee, tote, and a beanie hat. The first actual prize I’ve won from Starbucks in years of playing their games!


Every year I play this game and it’s always been a few stars here and there. Well this time it was different cause literally on the third day of playing I won a voucher for a free round trip through Alaska Airlines, 60 stars, and 5 meals for feeding America.


This morning I actually won the 400-star category. I am so excited…Thanks Starbucks 😊

By participating, you can earn other prizes too like free Starbucks drinks, airline tickets, Bose Earbuds, Starbucks Bonus Stars, and more! In the past, there were over 2 million instant prizes given away!

The last Starbucks for Life event started on December 1st, 2020 and ended on January 4th, 2021, so that’s when we’re likely to see it happening again. We’ll be sure to post about it right here when it starts!

    Thank you guys. I’ve won 45 stars. I had a little already so now I have 62 stars. I can get a free hot coffee.I’m satisfied with that.I’ve also earned about 7 sweepstakes entries🤞🏾

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome! Enjoy!

  2. atank

    Thank you! I won 195 stars, 1 free meal to feeding America and 9 entries into Starbucks sweepstakes

    • Amy

      how often do you go if you don’t mind me asking?

      • atank

        I played twice a day for free ( how Collin and the team showed us to log in for our free plays) and I never got any plays when I purchased from them

        • JangoFett

          I thought after making a purchase, you are supposed to get one free play?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! You’re welcome!

    I didn’t win anything this go around, but I’ve won stars and free drinks in the past, so I always play 🙂 Congrats to the winners!

    i’ve won a whopping 25 stars so far (oh and 9 sweepstakes entries). The starbucks games have really sucked for me this year. I’ve won 70 stars & a 50% coupon from all the games this year. Not really proving to worth my time, unlike past years.

    • BlueWaterGirl

      The game was plain terrible for lots of people. My husband and I haven’t won even 1 star in the last 3 weeks. 25 stars each.

      • atank

        Yes the last week or two I didnt get anything but doubles

  6. Marni

    This was the worst game ever. I played so often that I had two out of three for every category, and I didn’t win a single thing. A 50% off or BOGO coupon on a random drink that they know I wouldn’t get or 10 stars (which costs the company 10 cents, likely?) would have made it so I this didn’t leave me so disappointed in their brand. So many surveys and 10 cents wasn’t even worth it? This is just bad marketing by them, in my opinion. I go to Starbucks as a treat (and did many times throughout this game period) … and this just makes me like them a little less.

    I won 75 stars total and a free bakery item so I guess I can’t complain too much but I’ve definitely had better luck with past games! Hoping their next one is better 🙂
