6th Birthday Events UPDATE

Hello from a swelteringly hot London!

I hope you’re all getting excited about July and all the 6th Birthday events. There are 80 on the calendar to choose from! It’s not too late to get your events on there, it’s quite late for artwork though, our designers’ diaries are full to bursting and we can only accommodate pretty simple requests for July at this stage I’m afraid.

Trish has recently finished the badges for attending and hosting, they are SUPER! Here is a sneak preview for you. There are 4 host badges up for grabs, the Super Scott, Super Matt, Super Trish and Super Dylan. I’m on the Attendee Badge and there is an icon featuring Super Rob for everyone who goes to a Birthday event and captures the Event Indicator Pin.

Don’t forget that Dan the Man will be giving freebies to all attendees when they capture the event badge if the host has opted for that $20 extra and there will be surprises thrown in for all Birthday events as per usual, don’t miss out, plan your event today!

Stay safe and Munzee On!

The first of three badges is for beginners of the Elemental Arts and you can earn it by capturing 100 Elementals of any kind. All of the Elemental Munzee badges are retroactive, but they will remain hidden until you unlock the requirements for the next badge. The badges will go live at 00:01 MHQ on Thursday June 15th.

World Turtle Day Specials!

To celebrate World Turtle Day on May 23rd, we’re excited to announce new turtle specials will be crawling to the map! These shell-shocking specials go live May 19th at 00:01 MHQ and will stay until May 28th at 23:59 MHQ.

These 1200 turtle specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped, and you can cap them on your own munzees! You’ll earn 23 points for capping a turtle and the owner of the munzee will earn 17 points for CapOn.

You’ll also earn this totally tubular tortoise badge for capping one of these specials.

We have also released a new version of the Specials Map which allows you to filter what specials you can see so be sure to check it out before chasing after these turtles!

World Turtle Day was started in 2000 by the American Tortoise Rescue to raise awareness and respect for turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive. In connection with our Safar-Zee charity special Munzee encourages our players to show respect for wildlife of all sorts.

Thank you for your support and good luck! Munzee on!

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!

MHQ is MH-NEW!

Remember to RSVP to our MHNew Open House event this Friday on the Munzee Event Calendar. Those in attendance will get an awesome new badge for the Open House as well as a few new badges for visiting MHQ!

We’re also going to start a monthly Open House program as well! On the second Friday of each month we will have an Open House Munzee event from 2-5 PM. This will be a great time to check out the new offices, chat with MHQ staff and more. Keep an eye on the calendar for future dates as well!

We understand everyone can’t make it to Texas though, so be on the lookout for a new social media campaign soon! We’ll be interviewing team members about their new offices so you can get a first hand account of what our interior design skills look like.

Ahead of Friday’s Open House, we wanted to showcase a few MHQ team members hanging in our new offices. We’ve still got some space to fill, but we’ve been having a pretty good time breaking it in. We promise that in between wiffle ball games and scooter rides we actually do get stuff done!

We’re super excited to see new and old friends on Friday and thank you all for your well wishes with the move! Munzee on!

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!

Prize Wheel Badges are Here!

Prize Wheel Munzees have always given a bit extra, including ZeeCred more recently, but now, they’ve got another prize for you!

We’re happy to announce a new line of badges for capturing Prize Wheel Munzees!

These badges show off some of the prizes you might get playing carnival games, but like the Jewel Collector badges, you’ll only be able to unlock one at a time. The first badge in the line is “Balloon Darts Beach Ball” badge for capturing 1 Prize Wheel Munzee.

After earning the first badge in the set, the requirements for the next will appear. These badges will start awarding tomorrow, March 9th, at 00:01 MHQ time and WILL be retroactive.

Introducing the Bellhop Nomad!

While you’ve all been busy capturing the treacherous Jewel Thief on precious stones all month, a new stealthy fella is roaming the halls of Hotels and Motels worldwide. He claims he’s just here to help you with your bags though, so be sure to leave a tip for the new Bellhop Nomad Munzee!

10 Bellhop Nomads are now bouncing on Motel and Hotel Munzees every 12 hours or until captured. Note that the Bellhop only bounces to physical Destination Munzees though, so it will not fall on Virtual Resort Munzees.

These nomads will count toward the new Nomad Badges that were recently released as well.

Points:
Capture – 100
CapOn (for host) – 20

Since capping a Motel/Hotel usually means multiple caps and also a deploy if there are rooms left, we figured we’d go ahead and answer a few questions that might pop up:

1) What happens if I cap a Bellhop Nomad on an already capped Motel/Hotel?
You will get the points for the Bellhop Nomad, but you won’t get caps for the rooms again.

2) What happens if I cap a Bellhop Nomad on a not yet capped Motel/Hotel?
You’ll cap the Motel/Hotel as a nomad and additionally cap the rooms like you would have normally.

3) What if there are rooms available?
You’ll deploy a room like normal, as long as you do not already have a room since this would be case 1.

ScatterED Munzee Badge Line

With the release of the Scatter Munzee Badges a few weeks ago, of course the SCATTERED weren’t too far behind! This new line of badges is for capturing the ever exploding munzees that are sent out after initially capturing a Scatter Munzee.

Similar to the mad Scatter badges, the Scattered badges depict just how overwhelming it can be when more than a few get loose.

Please note that these badges are only for the official Scattered Munzees, so Fire, Ice and other specials that include munzees that scatter will not count. These badges are retroactive though, so all the hard work you’ve put into capping Scattered Munzees has paid off!
