SEATTLE, WA -- The next time  you head to get your Starbucks fix, be wary you're not sucking up that java goodness from one of the company's stainless steel straws. Starbucks is recalling about 2.5 million of those straws after reports of them causing cuts to people's mouths!

But - you know what could make that feel better? Free stuff! Like a lifetime of free Starbucks drinks! Yeah, on Tuesday the company rolled out their "Starbucks for Life" sweepstakes.

In short, when you buy something with your Starbucks app on your phone, you get a game piece. If you collect enough of the same kind of game pieces - you win a prize.

Seven people will win the grand prize -- which is Starbucks for life! If you're not one of the lucky seven, you could still win free drinks for a year, a month, a week, or you can get stars (which can be used to buy a drink).

So go get that iced venti caramel macchiato and try to win their version of the golden ticket! Just... don't do it with a metal straw.
