Huge 100 Geocoin Giveaway

Recommended Posts

I am giving away 2 geocoins to the next 50 people who request them. There are a few things I ask to keep things fair...

 

  • USA mailing addresses only. Sorry, I cannot afford the international postage.
  • If you have already recieved and/or logged any of these geocoins, please don't request any more. Give someone else a chance.
  • These geocoins are NOT to be sold. Please place and log them into geocaches as soon as possible, or hand them to another geocacher to log and/or place in a cache.
  • Please grab/log them as soon as possible after you receive them.

 

To request a mailer containing two geocoins, please email me at tom@tomslatin.com with your mailing address. I will mail out all requests on a weekly basis, and should have all requests filled rather quickly. Please don't email me asking where your mailer is; I will reply to all emails and let you know that you were part of the 50 people.

 

Post all questions and comments to this thread. I will update this post with the number of mailers available.

Currently there are 46 mailers available.

Do you retain ownership? Or will you let the recipient adopt the coin?

 

I retain all ownership, no adoption and no collecting.

So you aren't giving anything away. Instead you are distributing self promotional advertising which is often called spam.

Rescue557 was kind enough to send 10 to my daughter a few weeks ago and as an afterthought sent me one as well. He has about 50 out at the Moment. He paid for the coins and the postage to give Players of the game the fun of placing a coin somewhere. The placing and moving coins is becoming a rare Thing, so thanks Thomas and please dont knock him for doing it.

Ok, so I guess you don't want any then. No problem. B)

Thank you. (Never mind the fact that I spent close to $2500 US on 250 of them and am giving them away for FREE.)

We will be placing 2 of them. It's been a long time since we have found any in the wild so we are thrilled to be able to give someone a chance of finding one in a cache.

I have sent out several mailers today to those who have requested geocoins. They're going fast, I have 43 remaining.

 

I should probably have some more geocoins made... :laughing:

I still have some mailers left, but they won't last long with 3 to 5 requests being sent out daily. In fact, the post office knows me by name now. Get them before they're all claimed.

ALL DONE. THERE ARE NO MORE TO SEND OUT.

 

Thanks to everyone who requested geocoins, all have been sent out literally nationwide. If you didn't get yours already, there will be a smaller giveaway in 2017 (to be announced). Also, the USPS advised me that two mailings went missing, so approximately 15 geocoins were lost in the process. A report was sent to the USPS to account for the loss and hopefully they will turn up soon.
