Premium Munzee Badges!

In May of 2012 we released our Premium Munzee membership program and we’re now excited to offer badges for those that joined the program and further reward those that have stuck with us! The Munzee Premium badges are awarded to players who have deployed Premium Munzees. These unique munzees can only be earned by joining or renewing the Premium Munzee program, and then deploying those premium munzees.

These five badges (one for each year of renewal) are retroactive and you can earn them now! They are not actually earned based on number of years as a premium member, but instead by the number of premium munzees you have deployed. If you have premium credits in your account, NOW is the time to get them deployed!

If you are interested in renewing your Premium account (and earning another premium credit and the other goodies again) you can do so HERE.

Upgrade your existing Munzee account to a Premium Membership and enjoy a unique set of perks! For $30/year you will (currently) receive the following:

  • Premium Munzee – This munzee is only available to Premium members and is worth 10 deployment and capture points.
  • Motel Munzee credit – This munzee is only available to Premium members through the store, you may purchase up to 5 per month.
  • 4 MVM – These munzees can be deployed in places where it is impossible to hide a physical munzee. They are virtual. Deploy in app or via the online map.
  • Social Munzee – Besides being location-less and mobile, the Social Munzee can be branded with your own custom logo (500 pixels x 500 pixels).
  • Expanded user stats – Go behind the scenes with detailed munzee activity stats that you can view and share with other users.
  • First access (usually distributed for free) to many brand new products.
  • App Ad Removal Option under settings in app
  • Advanced Filters
  • Multi User Login in app (3 users)
  • and more!

*We like to keep this fresh so we reserve the right to substitute/add/change/tweak this program with no advance notice. The value will always remain the same, or be higher!

Once purchased you will receive your Premium Munzee as a credit, to be added when you deploy a munzee. Your Motel, MVMs, Social, and expanded stats will be immediately available on your account as well. If you are renewing your premium membership it will add 365 days to the end of your current expiration date.

We appreciate all of our Premium players and especially those who renew each year! If you have never become a premium member, NOW is the time to give it a try!

Munzee on!

Open House Gallery!

Our MH-New Open House was a huge hit! It was great to hang out with some of our players and show off our new office space. Flat Matt made his first appearance, we hosted a not-so-brief Facebook Live videocast and much more! We even had a few surprise guests show up, including our friends from the National Breast Cancer Foundation Donation!

Thank you to everyone that joined us in person as well as those who deployed in the area for all of us to enjoy.

Slide through the gallery (see small arrows in the bottom right corner of image above) to see how well we monkey around!

Munzee on!

Matt’s Been Flattened!

In November 2015 Flat Rob was released and he’s been traveling the world ever since. All that travel can be a bit lonely though, so we’re excited to announce that he now has a similarly two-dimensional friend- Flat Matt!

After three years with Team Munzee we’ve finally put enough pressure on Matt McCann to flatten him! The first Flat Matt has been released as a permanent MHQ special at our Open House today and they’ll go on sale for the public on June 1st. Flat Matts work much like Flat Robs, but there are some differences.

Flat Robs may be activated when Rob is traveling, but Flat Matts are activated based on specific sporting event schedules. Exactly what schedules? Well we can’t spill all of Flat Matt’s secrets! Stay tuned for more gameplay details when Flat Matts go on sale next month.

To celebrate Flat Matt’s global release MHQ is hosting a Munzee Event at the Frisco Roughriders baseball game Thursday June 1st and we’d love for you to join us! Be sure to RSVP on the Munzee Calendar. We’ll have more details about the event in a couple weeks so stay tuned for more info!

Safar-Zee Fundraising Update!

Following our Safar-Zee fundraising efforts we wanted to update you all on where some of the donations are going! We changed up our donation process this time around and instead of donating one lump sum to a single organization we have been making smaller donations to various animal and wildlife organizations worldwide.

In addition to In-Sync Exotics and our pal Mystery, below are some of the organizations members of our staff have chosen to receive donations on behalf of our players.

Thank you again for your awesome support for animals worldwide- we couldn’t do this without you! Munzee on!

 

Wildlife Warriors Worldwide
https://wildlifewarriors.org.au/
Chosen by Rob Vardeman, CZeeO

“Established by Crocodile Hunters Steve and Terri Irwin in 2002, the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors strive to be the most effective wildlife conservation organization in the world through the delivery of outstanding outcome-based programs and projects, inclusive of humanity.”

Animal Angels Sanctuary
www.animalangelstexas.org
Chosen by Cecie Newman, EVP of Operations

“My son and his family couldn’t keep 2 of their dogs. They were heartbroken until they came across this organization that is a 38 acre haven for abused animals and pets that can no longer be taken care of properly. They promise that 100% of every donation goes directly to animal benefit, paying no salaries for Staff or Board of Directors.”

Cat Matchers
http://www.catmatchers.org
Chosen by Teraca Grim – Director of HR and Operations

“I am a huge cat lover. I know all the hard work that Cat Matchers does to help unwanted or lost cats. I have reached out to them and know what nice people they are and how much they need donations. ”

North Texas Rabbit Sanctuary
http://www.ntrs.org/
Chosen by Scott Foster, VP of Technology

“My 6 year old daughter begs my wife and I everyday that she wants a rabbit as a pet. This donation will help explain to the public ( and my daughter ) how to take care of rabbits, what equipment is needed, and what food they need.”

The Beagle Freedom Project
https://bfp.org/
Chosen by Dylan Derryberry, Director of Creative Operations

“Beagle Freedom Project negotiates with laboratories across the world to secure the release of dogs and other animals and give them a chance at a normal home life after everything they have endured for vanity and scientific curiosity. The organization uses the rescues to draw public attention to the plight of animals languishing in labs and to promote cruelty-free lifestyle choices everyone can make.

The beagles act as ambassadors who give faces to animal testing victims and remind the public that these animals are not just furry test-tubes, but dogs no different from their pets. BFP has rescued hundreds of animals, including beagles, mixed-breed hounds, cats, rabbits, ponies, pigs, goats, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats, and even goldfish from laboratories, in cities and countries spanning the globe.”

Sea Turtle, Inc.
http://www.seaturtleinc.org
Chosen by Matt McCann, Director of Media and Player Relations

“Growing up by the ocean, wildlife preservation and restoration was a focal point of my community. Sea Turtle, Inc. was a large part of that. They rescue, rehabilitate, and release injured sea turtles as well as educate the public and assist with conservation efforts. I’m proud to donate to such a great cause that I grew up being able to help first hand..”

Tiggywinkles
http://www.sttiggywinkles.org.uk/
Chosen by Louise Gibson, Events Queen

“Tiggywinkles is a wonderful place, it’s a specialist hospital dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating all species of British wildlife. All casualties brought to the hospital are treated completely free of charge and are released through a controlled programme, back to the wild, when they are fully fit. Every casualty is given a chance and any animal or bird unable to be released back to the wild is maintained at the hospital, in as natural conditions as possible.

Tiggywinkles survives on a solid base of membership and relies on donations from the general public and sponsors to thrive. It receives no state funding of any kind and no financial assistance from conservation groups. Our money would really make a difference. We could adopt Al Pacino the Fox, Susie the Hedgehog and Roxy the Raven to name a few or make a one off donation. I love the story of how and why the hospital was created by Les Stocker and everything he and his family have done to keep the place going. Sadly Les died last year but we can help his legacy live on: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2016/07/19/les-stocker-st-tiggywinkles-founder–obituary/

Tierschutzverein Chemnitz und Umgebung e.V.
http://www.tierschutz-chemnitz.de
Chosen by Daniel Fischer, Backend Developer

“The “Tierschutzverein Chemnitz e.V.” is a non-profit society running the local animal shelter in Chemnitz/Germany. They take care of 800 to 900 animals per year who suffer hardship. Beside hosting and caregiving found or stray animals, they also try to raise awareness about animal protection and acting responsibly towards also pets and wildlife. The society receives municipal subsidization, but is highly dependent on additional donations.”

Adams County SPCA
http://www.adamscountyspca.org
Chosen by Daniel Hammock, Player Support

“Adams county SPCA throws events to help raise funds for the animals. Plus they have a network of helpers who drive long distances to rescue other dogs from shelters and adopt them out through their shelter.”

http://www.texaslittlecuties.org/
Chosen by Donovan Carreno, Mobile App Developer

“We have adopted from them, and we like to support our local shelters..”

Animal Welfare Institute
http://www.awionline.org/
Chosen by Dan Parker, Mobile App Developer

“This organization spends over 90% of donated funds on its programs. It is rare that a charitable organization spends over 90% of donations on what they claim to do because there are administrative costs to running any organization. This high percentage of funds allocated to purpose shows the company’s commitment to their cause. I respect that.”

Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center
http://www.rogerswildlife.org
Chosen by Judy Nguyen, Front End Developer

“I like birds.”

Denton Animal Support Foundation
http://www.dentonasf.com/
Chosen by Delana Adams, Eventzee Customer Service

“This is the organization that helped keep my current fur babies in the shelter for as long as they did (they’re older dogs), so they hold a special place in my heart. Without DASF we might not have found them. This organization helps with the adoption subsidy of older and harder to adopt animals, and helps find homes for animals uprooted from their homes.”

National Wildlife Refuge Association
http://refugeassociation.org/about/donate/
Chosen by Trish Vandehey, Graphic Illustrator

“I grew up in the forests of the Pacific Northwest wandering through nature with friends and family, and my best memories of childhood are all closely related to this. Even now, it plays a strong role in my adult life. When I am not working you will often find me exploring the woods or lakes, taking long hikes and watching wildlife with my children and grandchild. Preserving wildlife and spaces for them to flourish for future generations is paramount. Because of their focus in the conservation of wildlife and habitat in North America I have chosen to donate to the National Wildlife Refuge.”

Lovebugs Rescue

Chosen by Robbie McGuire, WallaBee Director

ZeeOps: May Missions

Simply searching various Destinations won’t be enough to find the hidden Mean Green Gang members though. Prove the area is secured by renting rooms in Destination Munzees of any type.

Introducing the Timeshare Munzee!

Howdy folks! Rockin’ Rob Vardeman has a special opportunity for YOU to be a part of the Royal Zee Travel family. We’re excited to announce the latest in our line of Destination Munzees: The Timeshare Munzee!

The new Timeshare Munzee is the latest in our Destination line of munzees alongside the Motel, Hotel and Virtual Resort. This physical credit item features 5 Rooms so the first 5 players to cap the Timeshare get a room deployed. Here’s the kicker though, Rooms only stay deployed for 30 days!

At the end of 30 days the rented room is archived and a new room is then available for the first player to cap the Timeshare. This new room will be available for any player including the person who just had their room archived, which means after 30 days you can recap to earn another room.

Proximity: A Timeshare must be at least 2000 feet away any other Timeshares and 500 feet away from other Destination Munzees.

Rooms: There are 5 rooms available in the Timeshare. After 30 days a rented room will be archived and a new room will open up.

Deploy: 100 points

Capture: You can earn 25 points and then 10 points per room rented.

CapOn: 10 points per room for the owner and 10 points for the renter of room

Release: The Timeshare will be a MunzPak exclusive for the month of May. Each MunzPak subscriber will receive three (3) Timeshare credits with their May MunzPak. To sign up visit munzpak.com.

NOTE: If you’re not currently a MunzPak subscriber and want to get the Timeshare you need to signup on May 1st to receive the May shipment. If you are interested in April’s MunzPak you can subscribe now to receive this month’s shipment and then change your billing date on May 1st to receive May’s shipment.

We’re also releasing two new lines of totally tubular Timeshare Badges you can earn by deploying and renting rooms.

We’re excited to see where everyone starts deploying their new Timeshares and thank you all once again for helping grow the game in new and unique ways!

Munzee on!

UPDATE: These are being launched in the May PHYSICAL MunzPak only. They are a physical type credit.

Munzee Referral Program Update: Rewards and Badges

Last week, we introduced Referral Leaderboards and Custom Referral Cards as a part of our Referral Program expansion. We told you to be on the look out for more updates, and the time has come! We’re happy to announce Referral Rewards and Referral Badges!

Referral Rewards

Word of mouth has made the biggest impact on growing the game, and you, our loyal players, are the most important part of that. Your hard work and passion for the game is what helps it grow. We want to thank and reward you for doing this.

There are now two ways to earn gift cards to the Munzee Online Store through the Referral Munzee program: Introductions and Referral Points Earned. Once you hit certain milestones for these two categories, respectively, you will be sent a gift card code.

These milestones are as follows:

Introductions

  • 5 Introductions – $5 Gift Code
  • 25 Introductions – $10 Gift Code
  • 100 Introductions – $25 Gift Code
  • 200 Introductions – $50 Gift Code

Referral Points Earned

  • 500 Referral Points Earned – $5 Gift Code
  • 1500 Referral Points Earned – $10 Gift Code
  • 2500 Referral Points Earned – $15 Gift Code
  • 5000 Referral Points Earned – $25 Gift Code

These rewards will be retroactive, so your past hard work in spreading the game will be acknowledged. For example, if you have 58 Introductions and have earned 2704 Referral Points, you will receive $5 and $10 gift codes for Introduction milestones and $5, $10, and $15 codes for Referral Points Earned milestones.

These will begin awarding tomorrow, April 26th at 01:30 MHQ time. If you’ve reached any of the milestones, you will separate receive emails with your respective gift codes.

Referral Badges 

Along with the Referral Rewards come Referral Badges. Like the Rewards, the badges are based on Introductions and Referral Points Earned. These badge lines will have to be unlocked one at a time though, so keep sharing your Munzee Referral Code with new players to earn them all!

The first badge for Introductions is the “Business Cards” badge, which you can earn by having 5 Introductions on your Munzee Referral Code.

Business Cards- 5 Introductions

The first badge for Referral Points Earned is the “Flying Standby” badge for earning 500 Referral Points.

Flying Standby – 500 Referral Points Earned

These badges are also retroactive, and will begin awarding tomorrow, April 25th at 10:00 MHQ time.

Referral Page

If you haven’t checked out the Referral Program page on your profile recently, make sure you do! On this page, you can find your Referral code as well as the players you’ve introduced to the game and the number of Referral Points you’ve earned.

We want to thank you for all of your hard work growing the game. You are the backbone of the game and community. With your help, we can make the game bigger and better than ever before!

Munzee on!
