Congratulations again to @pacejunkie for winning last month’s draw for an Oakland Coffee prize! Because I didn’t have time to find something unique this month, I’ll be giving away an $80 gift card of the winner’s choice from the Official Green Day store, Oakland Coffee, Hot Topic, etc.
On the first of April, there will be a draw among active users from the previous month with the winner getting to choose where they would like to spend their $80. Choose one item or multiple items from the same store that add up to $80, your choice. Good luck!
January winner: OperationSmily - Nimrod XXV Vinyl Box Set
February winner: pacejunkie - Oakland Coffee gift card
What is considered an active user? - Using the forum each week during the month. Racking up activity points on a couple of days and then making no contribution for the other 95% of the month is not considered active.
How do I get activity points? - Activity points are rewarded for reading posts, liking comments, and of course making posts and making comments.
How do I see how I’m doing? - You can see how you are doing on the leaderboard .
Can I increase my chances to win? - The top 10 users on the leaderboard at the end of the month will receive two contest entries while all other active users will receive one entry.
If you have any other questions feel free to ask below. Good luck!
I know MerchBar is an official site, but I’ve had some pretty bad experiences in the past when ordering vinyl from them! I once ordered a copy of Electra Heart by MARINA (which at this point was out of press for a while so I was stoked to find it) and it was cancelled a couple days later with zero email or notification otherwise. When I contacted them about it, they basically told me to get bent lol
Did you ever get Electra Heart? I used to work for Neon Gold and had a few extra copies when I left. I honestly can’t remember if they made the cross-country move I did a couple years ago, but I can look for you! I don’t want to get your hopes up just in case they didn’t but I’m happy to check when I can get to my stuff!
I did end up getting it! I think I was able to snag a copy on Amazon from a quick restock? I also found the Platinum Blonde edition from B&N a while after that so all is well, but I won’t be using MerchBar again
