Here’s one for the Jewel/Albertsons/Safeway folks: Jewel just emailed saying that Monopoly is back, and that they’re going to be giving out a million bonus Box Tops tickets worth ten Box Tops each. The ad new starting Wednesday 2/8 also promises over 100 million additional prizes this year.
(I am hoping that by these additional prizes they don’t mean things like “low value store coupons for things you don’t really want to buy” and “two free game tickets” in addition to the bonus Box Tops listed in the email, but…) Yeah, you can tell it’s not necessarily my favorite promo — but who is excited this year to see it back? Tell us about it. 🙂
I’m assuming that the Monopoly game has to be working for them, or they wouldn’t keep running the same promo every year! Just for fun, here’s a little article about the odds of winning the million dollar grand prize during last year’s Monopoly promotion.
