Get Glue: Part 1 – The HysteriaApril 22, 2012 No Comments
A week ago I noticed my friend on Facebook had sent off for her “real stickers” from getglue.com. Like any red-blooded American who loves sticking stuff to other stuff, my first reaction was “OMG STICKERS!!!” Sometime after my sticker-fueled hysteria calmed, my brain said hey, there has to be a catch, there’s always a catch.
So I visit this sticker-promising website and find out… they’re free? GREAT ODIN’S BEARD! FREE STICKERS?!!! As you can probably judge from my level of capitalized enthusiasm, this was all it took for me to find out how to get my free stickers.
To my delight, I find out that all I have to do to receive my stickers is to “check in” or “like” movies, television shows and books that I already enjoy – basically I get to talk about myself and I get rewarded in stickers. What self-enthused human being wouldn’t love this system?
There are hundreds of shows, movies, books and more that offer circular stickers for interacting in various ways. Some stickers are as easy to unlock as just “liking” or “checking in” to the item once. Other, more popular stickers, such as The Big Bang Theory’s “Bazinga” sticker requires you to check into the show 100 times and only counts one check in per day.
Once you land 20 stickers, you are eligible to send off for your stickers. You get 20 mailed to you at a time in the order that you unlock them – the only catch being that you can only request stickers once every 30 days. The site also says that it can take anywhere from four to eight weeks to receive your stickers, there is no way of tracking the mailed stickers, and if they are lost… Oh well. This can truly put a damper on the excitement, but pack your patience – it’s free!
Obviously some of you are still suspicious as to how this wonderful site can continue to offer to send free stickers to millions of followers and counting without charging them a red cent. Tune in next week and I will reveal to you the master plan lurking behind this site and what it means to the future of social media advertising.
As a goodie this week, I will include a cheat link to a website that tells you exactly how to unlock every sticker by category… have fun!
And don’t forget to tell us about it!
