Starbucks is giving away a lifetime of free drinks to 10 gift card users

If you know someone who appreciates the gift of coffee (or are just buying a present for yourself), you might just stumble onto a gift that keeps on giving at Starbucks this holiday season. That's because the caffeine giant is giving awaya lifetime of free drinks to 10 lucky gift card holders -- more than enough to put Philip J. Fry in a state of hyperspeed.

The promotion is available to anyone who uses a Starbucks Card to pay for their drink at any store in North America, as well as people who pay using their mobile device (they accept phone payments now!). Unfortunately, according to their press release, a "lifetime" is 30 years' worth of beverages, but who are we to look a gift card horse in the mouth?

The promotion is going on from December 2nd to December 25th. Stockpile those stocking stuffers, people!
