What you get: You can win Starbucksprizes including bonus stars toward your Gold Status or even Starbucks for life! Gold Status is achieved by earning 300 stars, typically accumulated through purchases made via the Starbucks Card or App. But this promotional game can shower you with stars or food & drink prizes. Make a purchase or complete a challenge and you'll get a spin, similar to roulette, to obtain a game token. Collect 3 tokens belonging to a set to win the designated prize.
Note: I didn't register for the game until a few days ago, but my previous purchases -- going back to early December, perhaps? -- counted towards the challenges. As long as you paid on your Starbucks Card or App, it will be in your order history and should count towards your spins.
What I get in return: Just spreading the news. I wish I had heard of this promo earlier. I love that Starbucks lets me substitute dairy with coconut milk, but it's not a cheap cup of coffee! Good luck!
What you get: You can win cash by playing the mobile trivia game HQ! Currently available only on iOS, you compete against others in real time by answering trivia questions! Daily at 9pm and weekdays at 3pm (EST), a live host asks 12 multiple-choice questions with 3 possible answers. Get an answer wrong or fail to answer within the time limit (~5 seconds), and you're eliminated! Get all 12 correct and you split the cash pot! Daily prizes are $1,500 typically, but last Sunday they had a $10,000 pot! This is US dollars, folks!
What I get in return: Each friend who installs HQ Trivia and uses my referral code chiofsteel helps me earn an extra life (i.e. a chance to continue if I get an answer wrong). Once you play HQ Trivia, you can get an extra life by referring your friends!
Note: I've only been playing for a couple of days, and some of the trivia is really tough! I can't yet vouch for the cash prize, but do a Google search and you can see how popular this app is. It's a fun 12 minutes, if nothing else!
What I scored: If you're a member of Cineplex's SCENE program, then you know there are a few ways to collect points towards free movie tickets. You earn points when you buy tickets or snacks at the concession. Partnered restaurants such as Swiss Chalet and Milestones will also provide SCENE points with your meal. In a few short weeks, I've earned 447 points and I didn't have to buy anything! As an added bonus, I've been entered multiple times into SCENE's 3-million points giveaway!
How I did it: Download the Carrot app using my bonus code ct6191 and you'll get 200 SCENE points! Answering short multiple-choice quizzes reward you 5 to 30 points. You earn 60 points for enabling step tracking, and 4 points daily for hitting your steps target plus be entered into SCENE's draw for 20,000 points every time you do! See how quickly it adds up?
What I scored: One of the hottest items this year and holiday season is the SNES (aka Super Nintendo) Classic gaming console. They were hard to get at launch and next to impossible during restocks at Best Buy or Amazon. But your boy lucked out big time, and I made sure to get a little cashback on my purchase, thanks to Ebates!
How I did it: Both Amazon.ca and Best Buy Canada have partnered with Ebates. So before you do your online Black Friday shopping from these stores (or hundreds of others), just make sure you start from ebates.ca to earn cashback on your purchase. In my case, I earned $1.00 to my Ebates account with my SNES purchase. I know, it doesn't sound like much, but it adds up quickly!
One of the things I miss most about working in downtown Toronto is the convenience of great food and drink options. Let's face it, eating out is expensive, so I didn't do it often. Food courts and restaurants get so busy, especially in the financial district! But when I didn't pack a lunch, it was great to have the Ritual app because it allowed me to order from my desk and then pick up at checkout when it was ready. I didn't waste any valuable time standing in line during my precious 45-minutes lunch. Read on about my experience. ...continue reading "Refer friends to Ritual to gift $10 & earn $10"
