Starbucks ran a contest last year where 14 people won free coffee for life. Sort of. "Life" really meant you get one drink or food item per day for 30 years.

It's still a great deal, but it's not quite as glorious as unlimited coffee every day until you die.

They just launched the contest again this year. You need to be a Starbucks Rewards member, which is free. Every time you buy something at Starbucks between now and January 11th, you get an entry in the contest. Then five people will get free coffee for "life."
