They're upping the ante

Who ever said three's a crowd?

Each time you donate platelets from August 1 - October 31, 2008, we will scratch off one of 3 boxes on the postcard you receive in the mail to reveal a special gift. (Even if you don't receive a postcard, you will still receive a bonus gift for each platelet donation).

PLUS...

Make 3 platelet donations from Aug. 1 - Oct. 31, 2008 and get 500 Platelet Advantage bonus points. Make 4 platelet donations and get 750 extra points. All donations made between Aug. 28 - Sept. 8, 2008 will receive an extra 50 bonus points.

To schedule an appointment visit us at: www.plateletadvantage.com

Or, call the Platelet Concierge Desk at: 1-866-PL8LETS (758-5387)

If you cannot donate but still wish to participate in bringing life-saving products to those in need, please consider volunteering at your local blood drive. For general inquiries, or for additional information about volunteering, please call 1-800-933-2566.

So... you get three scratch off areas. And you get one of the items underneath if you show up with a card, they'll scratch off an area and give you the corresponding gift. However! You are specifically and especially incited to give platelets four times. That fourth time, you get whatever a bohunk off the street who didn't receive a postcard gets. Do you think it's going to be lesser? It seems to me that if the suckiness of the gifts varies, the odds that I'll get a more sucky more would be increased by my showing up with a card. And that if I had no card, I'd be in a better position to argue for whichever of the available gifts (I predict AMC movie passes) I prefer.

I'll try that and report back.

So, did you follow through and donate at least times to find out what is beneath the mysterious gold foil boxes?

I did follow through, and discarded my card when it arrived. I've been twice since then and so far , no one's mentioned a gift.
