Almost three years ago, we started the PinPoints program to give players a way to earn game pieces through gameplay and purchases. Although we’ve enjoyed this opportunity to reward players, certain limitations by third party developers have forced us to shut down the program. Because of this PinPoints will no longer be redeemable after 15:00 MHQ on March 31st.
If you have PinPoints you can read more about these changes below, but we do want to highlight a number of reward opportunities we’ve added over the last three years for the Munzee community:
We launched our In-App Store, which allows players to purchase items using Zeds, an in-app currency which are often given as rewards for various gameplay achievements.
By rebooting our ZeeOps program, players can earn daily rewards for completing missions, as well as different credits that can be used in the Redeem Store.
For special occasions, limited-time credits like the Sham Rocks are earnable via gameplay and can be redeemed for unique seasonal game pieces.
Key areas of the game have been revamped such as the NEW Daily Activity Tracker, and Clan Wars, where players are able to earn rewards through gameplay as well.
Ultimately as our team has developed better ways to deliver rewards, it has become unrealistic to rely on third party providers for these tools. We appreciate all of those that have embraced the PinPoints program so we want to be sure that you can make the most of those points while you have them.
We do not anticipate offering PinPoints as part of a loyalty program in the future, so you will need to redeem your PinPoints before the removal date. Please note that we do not have PinPoints stored in the Munzee databases. PinPoints are held by a third-party provider through our Shopify store, so we won’t be able to bring those points back.
We hope you enjoy spending your leftover PinPoints, and stay tuned for more exciting ways to earn rewards in the future!
Ready for some fun updates?! Today we’re happy to announce Western Zodiac point updates, as well as brand new Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzee credits!
As Clan WarsBattle #78 commenced on September 3 at 00:01 MHQ time, the point values for Western Zodiac Munzees all made a permanent change. Like the Chinese Zodiac Munzees, the Western Zodiacs are now all worth 20 points for Deploy, Capture, and CapOn. Their permanent point change is now as follows:
Keep in mind that these values will double based on the Zodiac’s specified monthly timeframe. For example, it’s currently Virgo season (August 23- September 22), so all Virgo Western Zodiac Munzee’s will now be worth 40 points during this timeframe. For players focused on earning Zodiac points for Clan Wars, the remainder of the month will see double points action on Libra (September 23- October 22).
In addition to the Western Zodiac point updates, the Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzees will now be available as credits for the first time! Since there are multiple “active” Chinese Zodiacs at any time, the credit will randomly convert to one of the active types when it is used. Remember that the Chinese Zodiac Munzees are worth double points based on the Zodiac’s specified day of the week. If you need help converting a munzee using credits, be sure to check out our Help Guide article!
For the time being, these credits have been launched in the PinPoints store. Yesterday we gave players a heads up that PinPoints store items would be shifting, so you can now find these brand new credits available for PinPoints purchase! For a full selection of the current PinPoints store items, you can check out the PinPoints catalogue. Keep in mind that these products change on a rotating basis, so if you see something you like, don’t hesitate to use your points!
Whether or not you engage in Clan Wars, we hope these updates will add more fun to the game!

Hmm, can you think of any scavenger hunt games that you enjoy playing?

Today we are very happy to announce that PinPoints are officially ready to be used for the first time! That’s right, all of your patience has paid off! The PinPoints that many of you have acquired through April Clan Wars, ZEEster Egg specials, Pimedus caps, and the current May Clan Wars can now be used for rewards in the Freeze Tag Online Store! As of the publication of this post, the BETA version of our PinPoints system is officially LIVE!
We’re so excited to share PinPoints with players, but since this is our first wide test of the system, please bear with us as everyone joins! Kindly keep in mind that there might be a slight delay in your points showing up immediately due to the influx of people creating accounts today. Fortunately this is only a temporary issue that will not affect future PinPoints delivery as they are earned.
For a basic breakdown of the PinPoints Loyalty Program, check out this video!
Before we reveal the remaining details of this exciting new program, we would like to thank all players for their patience throughout the PinPoints process. We understand that earning points without knowing the full nature of their value provided ample room for frustration. Hopefully the fact that many of you have already acquired PinPoints ready for use will justified this temporary inconvenience. We are constantly working to update Munzee and introduce positive new aspects to the gameplay experience to make it as fun and exciting as possible for our wonderful player community!
All About PinPoints
For those of you unaware, PinPoints are the credits players can earn as part of our brand new PinPoints Loyalty Program. They are also the new “store credit” that many players earned through April Clan Wars. PinPoints can currently be earned through Freeze Tag Online Store purchases, Clan War achievements, and certain munzee captures! We have plans to introduce additional ways to earn PinPoints in the near future.
PinPoints are redeemable for REAL products in the Freeze Tag Online Store! Eager to get started using them? We put together a comprehensive PinPoints Help Guide article to break down the process! The initial setup process involves a few steps, but once you set it up, it’s easy from there on out. Check out the Help Guide and this video to get your PinPoints account set up today!
We had the best of intentions of launching this program in April. Due to unforeseen delays, we have chosen to make some retroactive purchases count toward PinPoints. All purchases made in the Freeze Tag Online Store within the 3 days prior to setting up your accountwill earn retroactive PinPoints. The sooner you setup and link your account, the more possible PinPoints you can earn. However, please keep in mind that there might be an initial delay in these points showing up. Remember, any delay is temporary and simply due to an initial system overload.
Since this is a BETA launch, we’d like to ask for a bit of extra patience. Though it should take as little as a few minutes for your PinPoints to update, we kindly ask that for the time being you wait 24 hours before contacting firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns regarding PinPoints earned. This will allow for any system overloads to be sorted out on their own so that the support inbox will not be flooded and player concerns can be handled in a timely manner. We thank you for your patience and understanding for any initial slowdown the launch might present!
We’re sure you’re wondering, just what can I buy with my PinPoints?! Ready to check out the awesome rewards? You can visit munzee.com/pinpointsrewards to see what is currently in rotation in the PinPoints store. Here you can also see what limits (if any!) there are on particular items. We will be updating the store on a semi-regular basis to remove certain items and add others, in order to provide exclusive shopping offers. The actual store pricing and availability is the final authority for all things as it may be updated quicker than the catalogue page.
Amongst many other reward options, players are able to redeem their PinPoints for Clan Weapon and ZeeCret Weapon munzees for the first time ever! Previously these items could only be earned through Clan Battles and ZeeOps Missions, respectively, so we are excited to offer more opportunity to acquire them through hard work! We know this will offer additional types on the map for capping fun around the world.
Another noteworthy feature of our PinPoints store is players may now earn an additional FIVE (5) of each Munzee Magnet type per month. This is on top of the normal 10 per 10 days limit! We hope this creates more opportunity for fun gameplay so that players can be rewarded for their noteworthy feats.
Think you can handle a little more exciting news? Perhaps you’ve noticed some new items in the store! They include a brand new Blast Capture 10-pack and Virtual Munzee 5-pack, which will now be available for PinPoints purchase! In addition, we will be launching a new item in the store as of the publication of this blog! You will now be able to purchase a Sapphire Munzee 5-pack! In other words, you can redeem your PinPoints for any of these three items or purchase them from the Freeze Tag Online Store and earn PinPoints for your purchases!
In addition to the PinPoints Help Guide, we encourage all players to check out the PinPoints FAQ and the PinPoints Terms and Conditions for complete information about the PinPoints Loyalty Program. The FAQ page will continue to be updated as more questions come in, so be sure to check back regularly. Once again, we are so grateful for the continual player patience. We can’t wait to see players picking up prizes of their choice with their hard-earned PinPoints!
Stay tuned for more exciting PinPoints updates and the inclusion of new PinPoints store items. This is just the BETA launch of our PinPoints program, and we are so excited to share future updates! The future has many wonderful things in the works for Munzee and its players!
