Your funny! I keep looking at that pin too. How about the tattoos? It was a lot of work to get my 3350 points. I want a hoodie or at least something half decent for my effort. I suppose I can get a $25 gift certificate but I probably spent about $2000 in game tickets and I don't know how much in overpriced food at the Consol to accumulate my points. It doesn't seem to be worth doing anymore.

I'm gonna spend all my points on 8x10 prints, and wall paper my room.

Yeah. You have to buy something with your points by the end of June. And then redeem that gift by the end of August.

I spent all year getting points. Drive to Pittsburgh for an hour. Pay for parking. All they have left in my hoodie is small and medium. I am a 3x. I don't even know any people that are small or medium. I probably won't do this again next year.

Waste of time other than a couple big macs and 6 packs of pop

Meh, I'm just going to let my points expire. Nothing I want.

It would be nice if they let you get items mailed either for points or even if you paid for postage. Living far out of town I really didn't get anything I could use. Even the Big Mac and pop can't be redeemed where I live so I gave them to a friend in PIT. I'll probably go for the drawings with my 1200 points.

Well paying for parking was just silly. If you checked the store page online you would have seen the green curb on Mario Lemieux Blvd is free parking specifically for shopping at the store. As for not having your size, couldn't a phone call have sufficed? It's not like XXXL clothes are common.

Do I actually have to be there to redeem my code for the free shirt? Could I just give it to my girlfriend to redeem it? I wasn't sure of the rules.

The Caps version of Pens Points is much more user friendly. Point "costs" are much more realistic and easier to redeem.

Having to watch EVERY pre-game, and EVERY post-game, and doing the points for both... gets you a whole 810 points. Only 2/3's of what you need for the crappy t-shirt, not even a player number shirt... 810 points is only 45% of what you need for that shirt. EVERY pre-games and EVERY post game! You can't even get a pin and a print for 810...

The $25 gift cards are 1800 points. It would take you two and a quarter seasons worth of pre and post games to "earn" a $25 gift card... TWO AND A QUARTER SEASONS WORTH!

Pens points is geared more towards people who go to lots of games as far as getting rewards, and I get that. If you are a season ticket holder and you scan every ticket you would be at what 2000 points or so?, factor in if you buy a drink while at the game, another 10 points(420 points over the course of a season). Factor in pre/post game codes and if you get pens predictor right every once in a while you could rack up points.

I always looked at is a mindless diversion. I got a shirt last year, and a tshirt this year. I knew I would never get much higher without going to a ton of games.

Its meant as a reward to the people who spend the most $$$$ on the team, not to people who only type in pre/post game codes... I don't think people quite understand that.

I understand... it just seems like it could be... friendlier to the average joe.

Every game (50) plus the STH bonus (300) is 2400. Not enough to get the hoodie, going to every game. You can get a $25 gift card and a pin...

Well thats where getting 10 points for buying a drink comes in handy, or the pre/post game codes which most people could get easily on their smartphone before and after the game. Factor in you get Pens predictor right say 10 times out of 82 games, and thats another 250 points. It slowly starts to add up, but I get what you are saying. Would be nice to have some other more easily attainable stuff.

2 minor corrections, and this might make your stats better or slightly worse.

Not all games have a pre and post game code. Once the game goes on NBC, it's only the radio code. Since there also is a radio code, you could potentially get 15 pts pet game vs 10.

I usually "cheated" and checked twitter or even the LGP thread. Even the post game codes were somewhat of a guessing game if you knew the common words that they repeated.

They added Pens year books for 1000 points and pens fashion tees in med large and Xl for 1800 points. The jersey raffles end June 1st. Don't feel like going to pick up a shirt during off season so I may put 20 tickets on all 3 jerseys to drain most of my points
Funny side note. The USA jersey is signed by granato. By lama. Orpik. And Martin. They took shero off the list lol

Second Chance Pens Points.

I will try to bring some of the comments to our brainstorming session for next season.

In the meantime, I will award 5 second chance prizes from my stash.

Just reply in this thread your favorite DPSG brand / flavor and why. I will pick 5 winners. I have some pretty cool and pretty meh prizes I will send out.

I'll play.

I like Dr. Pepper. Was my favorite drink as a kid. Always has that bite to it. One of the first things I grab on a cheat day.

I like the Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper because it is the only soda that I drink now. If one of the prizes is a lifetime supply of Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper...sign me up. If not, I'll take some gold bars that you promised me. :wink: :lol: :fist:

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I've searched and searched. Is there any way at all to redeem prizes without going to Pittsburgh. I'm a huge pens fan in Kentucky but have no way of getting to Pittsburgh by August or whenever it ends.

I've managed to collect 2035 points without attending a game (I did go to a cbj game). I did very well on predictors!

Please let me know of any way..
