Pens Points 2013-14 season

Postby CERV96 on Tue Sep 03, 2013 8:16 am

I decided to take the leap of faith and start the new thread. Same thing that goes from last year.

New stuff:
-RC Cola will be giving out 10 points for every 20 ounce purchases
-you will now be able to bank points for bigger purchases instead of having to unlock one thing at a time. You can just save your points for a designated section of the store.

So, did they make it harder to get points? I'd assume that they made some adjustments.

They may inflate the numbers of points to buy things and keep the current point system 25 for attending and stuff.

Right now it's showing 20 points per home game and 0 per away, which I'm sure will change. It's also showing all the same rewards as last year at the same point values, though that may change too.

New PensPoints App released.

Now you have to scan the ticket (not IceTime); so that will make it harder to win without being at the game. There's always a rewards store so you have to use points to get the prize you want (they don't keep accumulating). Looks like they're cracking down on security a bit, so we'll have to up our game.

My thread for last year's Pens Points yielded many free goodies for everyone, so you have a lot to live up to!

They have definitely tried to cut out some of the loopholes, but I like the rewards system much better now.

I have a tough time complaining about whatever they do with this. It's all a bonus as far as I'm concerned. Only minor quibble I had was not being able to use the pop certs at Consol.

It's awesome they do this but non season ticket holders can't get many points especially with the ticket scanning change. Also can't get nearly as much stuff when you lose your points when redeeming unlike last year


Ultimately this is a smart way for pens to collect data from fans and allow advertisers another way to reach us

Yes, they have definitely trimmed down on the sharing abilities. I cleaned house last year, got everything including the Jersey. I do attend a LOT of games, but definitely not every game. It is going to be tough to rake in anywhere near that many things this year...

There was no doubt that they would change things after last year. You have to realize that they are offering more chances (games) to get points, but you can't get everything on the list. Plus if you look on the app, there are only limited numbers of each reward.

I definitely had a feeling they would change it. Last year was sort of like a pilot program. Since it is free and the prizes are just a bonus for following a team I enjoy anyhow I am fine with whatever changes they make, I don't want to seem like I am complaining.

Does anyone else's app crash like five seconds after you start it? I'm on iPhone 4s (and iPad). I upgraded and now it crashes. I'm sure they'll get complaints and fix it, but just wanted to know if it was happening to others.

The other thing I noticed is the store says X Remaining over prizes. So, it looks like they are only giving away X amt of items, as well.

The season tickets and half season ticket holders should get the bulk of the upper prizes.

I can't say I like some of the changes, but since I won everything including the Jersey last year. I guess I don't need to be greedy.

New permission on Android to Retrieve running apps. Perhaps to crack down on GPS location spoofing.

It wouldn't matter, as far as the tickets. I do believe that each tickets is an unique barcode.

it would have more to do with the tgi friday's codes and miller lite night, etc.

that being said, there are definitely still ways to get around that check on android when rooted.

Tickets must be scanned in at Consol to be active for the points.
