Charge Up & Play 2016! Plug-in Community Rewards & Prizes!

[ Edited ]

Charge-Up-Banner-Large.jpg

It’s officially October so that means it’s time to CHARGE UP & PLAY!

 

Those of you who are ‘Old School’ around Plug-in know what’s to come … for our newer members who have joined us within the past year, things are about to get a whole lot more exciting around here!

 

Let’s get down to business.

 

Welcome to our 4th annual CHARGE UP & PLAY CONTEST 

 

Charge Up & Play requires you, and by you I mean the entire Community, to work together to unlock the shiny prizes we have in store. The more points you collectively earn, the bigger the prizes and High Fives get! 

 

 

This year there are MORE chances to WIN, new point totals, and BIGGER Wildcard challenges to participate in!

 

Starting today, Monday, October 3rd until Friday, November 4th, 2016, any and all new threads started, replies posted, kudos and accepted solutions given will earn the Community points. A new Wild Card Challenge will also be introduced at each level and this is your chance to get those big ticket bonus points. We’re also introducing a new challenge this year: the ‘Create A Video’ challenge. By creating a Best Buy product review video, a help/Did You Know video on a popular discussion topic or video game level walkthrough video you can earn additional points and qualify for an additional prize!

 

Each action taken, results in one entry to a maximum of ten entries per person per day, so aim big and get your name in that trophy cup over and over and then over and over again 

 

Once a level is reached, prizes are unlocked! There will be a Community prize for all to share and also a Best Buy gift card waiting for a lucky someone. The gift card will be raffled among all members who contributed towards reaching the specific level. 

 

Alright, so that brings us to the final piece! Points, threshold levels and prizes, check out the handy dandy chart below and point breakdown per action:

Participate in a wildcard challenge (15 points)

All those points will add up in a big way, every little bit counts. I will be keeping track of the progress and updating you regularly so you know where we’re at and just how hard you'll need to work to unlock that next level.

What is the requirement for the MVP or is that just to be determined later

Re: Charge Up & Play 2016! Plug-in Community Rewards

Hey @Drax86,

 

Sorry for taking so long to reply to your question. 

 

The Plug-in MVP will be drawn for all entrants who participate during Charge Up & Play. We are keeping score of everyone's participation and for each point they acculmulate during Charge Up & Play they'll receive a ballot for the MVP prize at the end. 

 

For example: 

JoeSmith particpates in 3 Wildcard challenges (30 points), makes 1 video (50 points), marks 3 solutions (9 points) and replies to 2 posts (10 points) ... he has 99 ballots in the draw.

Been debating between the Ring doorbell or maybe the ecobee thermostat
