Introducing the Virtual Swap!
Below you can read the original blog post while MVMs were still a thing. The process is still the same but only virtuals exist now. You can purchase them in the store and they include a free color credit here.
Read on for old information but still the same process…
Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can!
We’re excited to announce that you can now easily swap out many virtual munzees!
Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs. By using the Virt Swap tool, you can instantly archive your old virtual type munzee and deploy the new one in the exact same spot. No waiting periods and no losing your spot! This also opens up the opportunity for players to re-capture high density areas, if new virtuals are deployed.
With the Virt Swap tool almost any virtual type can be replaced by almost any virtual type.**
For example, you can swap an old green virtual for a new virtual sapphire in the exact same location. You could also swap an old yellow mystery virtual for a new MVM and add a yellow color credit. It’s good as new and ready for people to come and cap it! Imagine the cap on points you will receive with the strategically placed MVM versus the old virtual points.
Please note that when you swap out an old virtual you must use a new munzee that has not been previously deployed. Since you’re swapping out for a totally new munzee the points for the old virt captures will not change.
To celebrate the release of this new tool MVMs are on sale for $4 and for every MVM purchased you’ll get a free color credit as well. Go to the Munzee Online Store and stock up now!
To swap out a virtual just do the following:
- Go to your online Munzee profile.
- Go to your undeployed munzees and copy the number code from the replacement virtual item URL.
- Go to your deployed munzees and choose the virtual you want to replace.
- Click “Edit Details,” scroll down and paste the new number code in the specified area.
