Starbucks For Life

There’s a summer edition of Starbucks For Life going on right now.  Every time you pay with your registered Starbucks card you earn a play.  The plays give you a different token every time and you need 3 tokens for each of the prizes: Starbucks for a week, Starbucks for a month, Starbucks for a year, and Starbucks for life.  I keep getting a lot of repeats.

You have to wonder if it’s really true that a purchase doesn’t increase your chances of winning.  It’s somewhat difficult to get a free game play.  And you can only get one a day.  Furthermore, if you already got a game play by buying something you can’t get an additional free one.  So buying stuff at Starbucks is the easiest, most effective way to get game plays.  I would guess that all the winners in previous installments of the game all bought a lot of stuff at Starbucks.

Remember, you need 3 tokens to win each prize.  And one of the tokens is a rare piece.  So you have to wonder if in previous installments of the game people who didn’t have the other 2 tokens earned the rare piece.  That would mean that nobody won that prize.
