Because, the holidays are always stressful, even in the best of years. Period. The best way to bestow some super fun holiday cheer upon, well,  you this year? By playing Starbucks For Life, the game that could keep on giving you a lifetime supply of Starbucks, as well as a whole bunch of other oh-so-appealing prizes.

If you’re already a player, feel free to skip to the prize section below (there are SO many amazing scores this year—the chance to win over 2.5 million prizes, to be exact). If you’re a newbie, you need to get in on the game, stat. First, join Starbucks Rewards by downloading the Starbucks app. Every time you order using the app or scan your app to pay, you’ll collect stars, which can be redeemed for rewards—like free food, drinks, and more. Once you’re a Starbucks Rewards Member, each purchase at Starbucks (up to 2 per day) wins you a play in the Starbucks For Life game, as does completing weekly challenges in the game. Simply tap the Snow Globe when you log into the game at the link above, so it shakes and you’ll either get an Instant Win or a game piece (hello, Betty the Yeti or Gingerbread the Gingerbread Man!) to collect toward a prize. Three game pieces in the same row give you the chance to win some swoon-worthy swag including:
