Get ready for an infusion of love on the road, just in time for Valentine’s Day! From February 8-14, we’re dropping holiday-themed ‘road goodies’ all over the map as a way for you to pick up something sweet while you’re on your way to wherever you’re going. Valentine’s-themed ‘road goodies’ include Cupid’s Arrows (worth 15 points) and Love Balloons (worth 10 points). Much some ’road goodies’ as a way to amp up your point total in prep for our next version which will feature a scoreboard, allowing you to see how you stack up against others in your local driving community.
For users in the US and Canada, we’ll also be having a ‘Valentine’s Treasure Hunt,’ featuring virtual treasure chests that, when driven over, have the potential to reward users with real-world prizes. Should you be the person to drive over a treasure chest that contains a prize, you’ll receive a pop-up notification, plus an email with more information within the following 24 hours – 48 hours.
Unfortunately, due to the logistical nightmare of fulfilling prizes internationally, this time we have to limit the ‘Valentine’s Treasure Hunt’ to the US and Canada only. We’re actively searching for creative solutions that will allow us to run international promotions.
Have fun out there!
