CoN Final Fantasy XV Soda Giveaway Starts Now

Energizing ElixirHappy new year, CoN readers! I posted a while back on our CoN social media accounts about the Final Fantasy XV soda collaboration with Jones Soda, exclusive in the US to Target stores. I posted, naturally, because I went out and bought a few (and drank some, they're quite good). The soda is bright orange and orange cream flavored, and it's no longer for sale on store shelves. But, as luck would have it, I've got several extras just hanging out in my office as I type.

Sealed bottles of Wiz's Energizing Elixir are selling on eBay right now for anywhere from $10 to $20 a bottle, and CoN is giving you the chance to win one for free. All you have to do is post at the forums between now and 23:59:59 UTC (or 6:59:59pm EST) on January 15. You can post in this thread to say "ooh, free stuff!," or talk about current events in General Topics, ask a question about Final Fantasy IX, you name it. If you make a post between now and then and don't get yourself warned or banned in the meantime, you're in the running.

We'll give away one bottle for every 25 users who post between now and then, up to four. One bottle for up to 25, two bottles for up to 50, and so on. Winners will be selected at random, with no priority given to number of posts, and messaged via the forums to claim their prizes by the end of January. Unclaimed prizes will sit on my shelf until I feel like doing something with them. Current CoN staff are ineligible to win, but our posts count toward the overall user count. Bottles will be shipped for free within the United States - international winners will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

Time to get to posting, and to start out the new year with a new prize courtesy CoN!

Tonepoet Geeze, at $10-20 for a mere can of soda, you would think somebody would have the last batch of sealed cans with the Cool Spot hanging off of it or something. You know the 7-up mascot during the late eighties and early nineties, who had his own spiffy series of video games including the eponymous Cool Spot for the Sega Genesis. That was a rather neat game.

Heck, even insofar as Final Fantasy related drinks go this is a little underwhelming. I should have invested in those neat cobalt blue Potion energy drinks back in 2006. I'd be a bazillionaire! Oh well, you live and learn I suppose...

It's a spiffy contest regardless though. Unfortunately, I'll have to forfeit any interest in a prize despite the fact that this post probably qualifies me for one, since I would rather not give out my exact physical location, even to our trustworthy moderators. Also, was there ever a time when we had like, fifty people posting on these forums all at once? I know we've had many posters, but I don't seem to recollect that.

Anyway, good luck to those of you who want the first bottle.

Stiltzkin Ooooh, free stuff! Cool idea, Rangers. So, when you say case-by-case basis for international mean you'll send me a whole case of the stuff, right... ?

Yeah, I didn't actually check the math on that before setting this up, largely because I was several weeks behind on actually doing it. We have had enough unique posters many, many times, but you're partially right because it has been a while since we hit the 100 mark. However, that's no excuse to not get involved, and maybe if I'm sad about the final results I'll address it later. smile.gif

Stiltz, I mainly mean that if a winner comes from a country where it will cost me an ungodly sum to get it shipped over, then I might have to split shipping costs with a winner or something like that. Kind of playing it by ear because obviously I don't want to go that route!

Galsic Oh my, I didn't even know this was goin' on until after I fired off five other posts, today. That said, I'm not sure what I would do with such a prize. I definitely wouldn't drink it; I find fruit flavored sodas god-awful. Gotta appreciate the thought, though!

Cefca I assume this thing will heal my HP and MP to max, right?

Rangers51 Ooh, we're sooooooo close to getting to the first threshold. So, I'm going to extend this a little further - let's go ahead and do it to the end of the month, eh? Same clock time on January 31. smile.gif
