Who Will Win the Super Bowl Coke Chase? Vote and Win!

It’s officially Carnival time here in New Orleans, but the craziness just got crazier with the addition of Super Bowl XLVII to be held Sunday, February 3rd in our own Superdome.  While native New Orleanians are sad that our Saints won’t be marching in this year, we have certainly rolled out the red carpet to welcome fans of the NFL (with the exception of Roger Goodell, of course).

If you can’t be in the Superdome this year to watch the big game, you can enjoy the entertainment from the comfort of your own home.  And by entertainment, I mean the infamous Super Bowl commercials.  If the Saints aren’t on the field, I am disinterested in the game but I am always amazed at the creativity of the commercials as brands face off to have the most popular spot.

This year, The Coca-Cola Company will debut a 60-second commercial entitled “Mirage” during the Big Game.  Actually, it’s more than just a commercial, it’s interactive!  During the first quarter of the game, the first (of two) parts will air setting the scene and introducing three factions of characters – a band of Cowboys, a gang of “Badlanders” and a pack of Vegas-style Showgirls – as they chase after an elusive bottle of Coca-Cola.  You can actually get a sneak peek below!

So, who wins the race?  That part is totally up to you, the viewer.  Log on to CokeChase.com to vote for your favorite faction and slow down their fictional foes by initiating fun acts of sabotage.  After watching the initial part of the commercial, I decided to root for the Showgirls.  I mean, pink plus sparkles?  It’s a no brainer for this dance mom.  Once I voted, I was able to see that my group is actually in the lead, with the cowboys close behind.  In order to slow down the cowboys (it’s all about strategy), I chose to sabotage them!  I was treated to a funny video showing the cowboys being slowed down for 13 seconds while playing a game of “Double Dutch” in the desert.

At the end of the game, the fans’ actions will determine how the storyline plays out and which one of three 30-second payoff ads will air following the final whistle of the Big Game – a first for The Coca-Cola Company.  Coca-Cola’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter platforms will play a major role in delivering real-time updates on the factions’ progress, and additional Coke Chase and character content will appear on Tumblr and Instagram.

So, how can you influence the outcome?  From now till February 3rd, head to CokeChase.com to rock the vote and sabotage the other rival groups while you’re there.  Get your friends in on the action by sharing on your social networks using hashtags #CokeShowgirls, #CokeCowboys or #CokeBadlanders.  On game-day, show support for your group by tweeting @CocaCola with your favorite group’s hashtag and you will receive responses from the team including a link to sabotage other groups and put your team further ahead.  At the end of the game, the group with the most points tabulated by Coke Representatives will have their 30 second spot aired!  After the winning 30-second spot hits the airwaves, people who Like or Follow the Coke Chase will be rewarded with additional content, including the alternate 30-second endings so they can see how the desert-based chase could have concluded if another group had reached the bottles of Coke first.

To celebrate this fun initiative by The Coca-Cola Company, I have a prize pack to give away to one of my readers worth $100.  Enter below!

Domino’s: More than Pizza! {$20 Gift Card Giveaway}

When you think of the Domino’s brand, invariably the word “pizza” comes to mind, right?  As a child, I always loved Domino’s Pizza night in our house and I have carried over the tradition to my home.  My daughters are huge fan of the newly reinvented pizza and the delicious breadsticks.  But if you have a craving for sweet, spicy and tangy chicken wings and boneless chicken, do you pick up the phone and dial Domino’s?  For me, I didn’t even realize that chicken was on the menu, so I was thrilled to give it a try.

When reinventing Domino’s chicken (did you know it was on the menu since 2002?), the test kitchen chefs listened to customer feedback and worked hard to create a delicious product.  From the press release:

“The new, tastier chicken wings are available in hot, BBQ and new Sweet Mango Habanero – while the new boneless chicken gives customers more choice on how to customize to their specific tastes. In addition to the new boneless chicken, made with 100 percent whole white breast meat lightly breaded with savory herbs, a selection of dipping sauces will provide multiple options. These are sure to please those who either want to spice things up with Sweet Mango Habanero or Kickers Hot sauces, or go with more traditional dipping options like BBQ sauce or Ranch.”

Reading the descriptions made our mouths water, so my family was so excited when two orders of wings (BBQ and Plain) and one order of boneless chicken arrived at our doorstep along with a plethora of dipping sauces.  We immediately dived in because they smelled delicious.  The chicken was wrapped in foil to lock in the heat which worked perfectly because the chicken arrived hot (no reheating necessary).  My daughters (ages 3 and 6), who are World’s biggest fans of chicken nuggets, picked the boneless chicken with BBQ sauce.  Before I could blink, they were asking for more! The breading was very good (not too soft, not too crispy) and the BBQ sauce was spiced perfectly for my taste.

My husband is the chicken wing connoisseur in the house, so he was the first to try the BBQ wings.  He described them as “well sauced with good flavor!”  I was brave and tasted the extra spicy “Sweet Mango and Habanero Sauce.”  I actually really liked , but wasn’t able to use much of it!

The new wings and boneless chicken from Domino’s makes us rethink the entire brand.  We will now grab for the Domino’s menu for more things than just pizza!  What a great idea for a fuss-free March Madness party!  We would definitely order chicken wings and boneless chicken from Domino’s again.

GIVEAWAY

Is your mouth watering yet?  One lucky reader will receive a $20 gift card to Domino’s!

How to Enter:

1. Check out the sauces available for the chicken wing and let me know which one you can’t wait to try!

Dominos Aubidle Tracker: $20 Gift Card Giveaway

When we get home from work and realize that we forgot to plan dinner, we often reach for the phone and dial up Dominos.  Try as I might, it is hard to distract my two little ones from their hungry tummies.  This often leads to me wondering how long it’s been since I made the order and frantic pacing by the front door.  Now, Dominos has come up with a great (and fun!) way to track the status of your pizza online!  From the press release:

“Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, has given its revolutionary Pizza Tracker™ tool an auditory upgrade! Beginning today, customers who order online from Domino’s will not only see – but hear their order being made, thanks to the introduction of Talking Tracker.

After an order is placed, either by phone or online at www.dominos.com, customers who utilize Pizza TrackerTM will now be able to choose from six themes – each one giving the interface a distinct look and voice. Depending on the theme, Talking Tracker might sing, cheer or even sweet talk customers the status of their order from the moment it’s prepared to the second it’s out the door or ready for pickup.

Talking Tracker is also compatible with Surf With Tracker, brand new feature that allows consumers to browse the web without losing track of their order.

“We’re continuing to add to the convenience of Domino’s online ordering and Pizza TrackerTM, now allowing customers to leave their computers and still know where their pizza is in the ordering process – as long as their speakers are turned up!” said Chris Brandon, Domino’s Pizza spokesperson. “Adding these elements is our way of making sure we are creating the most innovative ordering experience possible.”

Be a Taste Bud Bounty Hunter: $20 Dominos Gift Card Giveaway!

I would love to say that I am an amazing cook and that when asked, my daughters would exclaim that their favorite dinner is one that I lovingly made in my kitchen.  But to be honest, if you ask my girls to tell you their favorite meal, I would bet my life that the answer would be PIZZA (with chicken nuggets coming in a close second!)!  So you can guess that we have tried just about every pizza joint within a reasonable distance from my home, including frequent visits to our local Domino’s.  Have you tried the New & Improved Domino’s pizza recipe?

If you’ve tried it but know some friends who haven’t, you should definitely check out the Taste Bud Bounty Hunter game in order to capture the pizza “holdouts” and win FREE PIZZA for an entire YEAR!  Here’s how it works (from the press release):

Dominos_NI_CheesePull_5x7_jpg“Domino’s is placing a “bounty” on taste buds that have yet to try its Inspired New Pizza – the payment being free food, of course! Domino’s Taste Bud Bounty, which recently launched online at PizzaHoldouts.com, encourages customers to turn in their pizza holdout friends in exchange for delicious rewards.

The Taste Bud Bounty Hunter who successfully convinces the most pizza holdouts to try out the new recipe will win FREE pizza for a year in the form of $20 gift cards – 52, to be exact.  Both the hunters and the hunted will receive incentives via e-mail for participating in the Taste Bud Bounty, which utilizes Facebook to further engage consumers.  Participants can easily upload their profile photo from Facebook onto the Domino’s Most Wanted Taste Bud Wall or the Top Bounty Hunter Wall. They can then have their progress updated, and be followed by friends.

To start the search, consumers can go to PizzaHoldouts.com. Domino’s will reward each Bounty Hunter’s first submission with a coupon for a FREE order of Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes with an online delivery order of $10 or more. Each submitted pizza holdout will receive a coupon to buy one pizza and get a second pizza of equal or lesser value FREE (minimum delivery amount applies, only valid online).

Hunters who successfully “capture”  10 friends – convincing them to order Domino’s new pizza – will receive a coupon for one FREE large 1-topping pizza (with online order only, tax and delivery charge may apply). Customers are encouraged to capture as many pizza holdouts as possible before the contest ends June 27.”

Uhhh…..excuse me….did someone say Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes?  Where do I sign up?  I have to go start my list of people to “hunt!”
