Yeah I know it’s not exactly tech news, but I don’t know many people in the tech field that don’t drink coffee, coffee and tech kind of go hand in hand I think. Starbucks is giving away 14 Ultimate Starbucks Cards which are 10k gold Starbucks cards that give the owner Starbucks for life, or one free beverage or food item everyday for 30 years.. My questions is though, what happens if Starbucks closes within the next 30 years? Next question is what happens is someone young wins and lives more than another 30 years? It’s not really Starbucks for Life is it then? Eh whatever, 30 years is enough I think..
With the holiday shopping season in full swing, Starbucks is offering customers the chance to gift themselves the ultimate prize – Starbucks for Life.
From now through Jan. 5, 2015, customers who pay using a Starbucks Card (registration not required) or their Starbucks® mobile app, can enter the Starbucks® It’s a Wonderful Card Ultimate Giveaway* for a chance to win one of 482,000 instant prizes, and 10 customers in the U.S. will win the ultimate prize of Starbucks for Life, which is one free food or beverage item from participating stores every day for the next 30 years.
“Starbucks for Life is truly the ultimate gift of the season, and we are thrilled to make that a reality for a special group of Starbucks customers. And, the prizes will keep coming throughout the holiday season with more than 482,000 instant winners,” said Sharon Rothstein, Starbucks global chief marketing officer.
By swiping a Starbucks Card or paying with a mobile device, customers will receive a receipt with a unique sweepstakes code that can be entered online at starbucks.com/play for a chance to win instant prizes, including free holiday beverages and treats, or the grand prize, the Ultimate Starbucks Card, which provides the winners with Starbucks for Life, an estimated value of $54,000 U.S.
With only 14 made, the Ultimate Starbucks Card not only provides customers Starbucks for Life, but also a piece of Starbucks history.
