Happy summer and good cold brew season to those who observe! You did it — you made it to the best time of the year. And, as is tradition, your fave coffee company is kicking it off with the all-new Starbucks® Summer Game: Road to Paradise. Only this time it’s arriving earlier than ever, running from May 16 through June 17.

For the uninitiated, the Starbucks Summer Game is a chance for the iconic coffeehouse to give their fans a little extra love in the form of prizes (5 million different prizes to be exact), including thousands in gift cards, Bonus Stars, and (for the first time ever in Starbucks Game history) four new Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric Compact SUVs. Love that for us!

Here’s how you can get in on all that sweet, sweet prize action: First, become a Starbucks® Rewards member, if you’re not already. It doesn’t cost a thing, and it’s super easy to sign up via the Starbucks website. You can even earn free drinks and look forward to a treat on your birthday!

All signed up? Cool! Next, grab your morning cold brew or favorite Starbucks Refresher® beverage from a participating store in the U.S. When you purchase your bevvie using a Starbucks Card, a linked payment method, or by scanning the Starbucks app, you earn a chance to spin the gameshow wheel-esque Starbucks Summer Game sun — up to twice per day.

In the game this year you can break up your day by giving the sunny wheel a spin to win game pieces, one of four post cards you can collect for a chance to win a new Volvo XC40 Recharge, or an instant win, like a free drink.

On top of that, the Starbucks Summer Game features very on-brand challenges (like ordering ahead in the app with Mobile order and Pay) which you can complete to earn extra plays and game boosters. You can also check out the oh-so-addicting puzzle game and try to beat your highest score. Let’s just say: Good luck to your deadlines.

Tl;dr: The whole Starbucks Summer Game: Road to Paradise is super simple and fun, which is the best combination of traits. And bonus, you could win a new Volvo XC40 Recharge in the process. Don’t forget, the game ends June 17, so get sippin’ and spinnin’ while you can!
