How to play the Starbucks Summer Game 2022

Move over Wordle, there’s a new game on the market. Starbucks’ annual Summer Game is back for 2022 and you’re going to want to know what you have to do to have a chance of getting your hands on these prizes.

To play, you’ll need to be a Starbucks Rewards Member. If you’re not a member of the company’s rewards programme, you can sign up here. You must be aged 18 or over.

Next, head to to get started, and sign in. The first time you register for the game you’ll get a free play, and you won’t need to make a purchase.

However, to earn more gameplays you have to make a transaction at a Starbucks store by scanning the app or go to the alternative gameplay link and fill out the form.

You can also bag bonus gameplay by purchasing a drink featuring a dairy-alternative milk, earn 25 to 50 stars on your rewards account, order ahead on the Starbucks app, or load your Starbucks card.

Once you’ve successfully played the game you’ll get an instant win prize – such as a gift card – or a unique game piece that goes towards winning the grand prize.

Please note you’re limited to playing the game twice per day.

If you win an instant prize, you can bag between five and 300 bonus stars, which can be redeemed on the Starbucks app. Likewise, you might be able to earn a Starbucks gift card, valued between $5 and $100.

If you’re able to collect four unique game pieces, you’re in for a chance of winning a 2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge Car. Only four players will have a chance of grabbing the grand prize, and will have to be licensed drivers.
