I am discouraged. 7500 points for a jersey? That's an average of 92 points per game!
If you have seasons tickets and go to every game:
Season ticket bonus = 300
41 ticket scans X 75 points = 3,075
15 NBC games (Radio only) @ 5points = 75 points
67 Root games (Pregame, postgame and Radio @ 15 points = 1005
27 weeks of Pens News/Videos @ 10 points = 270
Coors Light nights 2x @50 = 100

That's 4825 points.
Augment that with:

41 concessions x 15 = 615
7 Merchandise purchases @ 15 = 105
6 months of 20 bottle caps @10 points = 1200

6,745 at the end of the regular season IF you achieve EVERY point possible. That would require the Pens make it to the Eastern Conference Finals to achieve the jersey, with you earning maximal points/game and fulfilling every bonus point possibility. Seems too high.

Right? Instead of 41 concession purchases of $5.50 for peanuts I could use the $225 to buy a jersey.

You need more than 7 merchandise purchases to reach your goal.
And to drink a whole lot of pop.

How long is the TV keyword good for? After puck drop? End of game?

TV word is good until puck drop.
This is worse than last year, IIRC.

Huh.... keep getting a 503 network error when trying to enter points....
Difficulty entering keywords this year and the high requirements for points makes the whole points thing seem to be more trouble than it's worth..... sad....

UPDATE: Finally got in, missed getting pregame points....sheesh... come on guys....you can do better...

It would be nice if you could get items shipped either for a fee or for more points. We all know the Pens have a lot of out of town fans that support the team and spend money on all kinds of Pens related stuff. Personally I only back once a year and that's usually at the beginning of the season so I can have a combined Pens / Steelers weekend. So far in 3 years the only thing I've been able to get was a Malkin picture and I barely had enough point for that when I got back to town. At the end of the year I usually just drop all of my points on drawings.....of which I no exactly zero people who have ever won.

I emailed and asked they credit my account the points for the words. Why not? I’m not terribly interested in the game at this point. :)

I believe the merchandise max is 7. Otherwise I could buy the same $11 item 41 times and return it at the next game.
