Nice.

I'm a huge fan of Caribou, even though they changed their cooler formula. I try to go one a week at least. There're quite a few in the DC region.

Do you work in the coffeehouse, or for Caribou corporate?

Thanks for the word.

Had some Caribou Coffee when I was in Chicago last week. Good and tasty stuff. Can't remember where I put my little iTunes/caribou thingy I got with my purchase.

impossible to win

I have tried about 30 times and never won. Then today I had nothing to do in class for a couple minutes so I went on the site, I only had time to try twice and i won both times. 10 free tunes and 1 free coffee. So I guess it's all about timing.

This game is BS. Three times i've had the bean heading towards the cup, only for it to hit some invisible peg and bounce off.

I'm glad to hear ANYONE has won, but this game is really ticking me off. :mad:

I've been playing over a week and have come close nearly every time only to see that stupid bean change directions and miss.

Grrrrr! :mad:

Maybe I was just so used to winning more than half the time on Pepsi's past iTMS promos that it eeks me out to no end that I'm 0/9...

Maybe their system knows I don't have one of their coffee shops anywhere near me...?

Well - there is no Caribou coffee round here - but I still did win - but I am 0 for 10 after that initial win...

I hate this sort of contest. I have to give all sorts of personal information just to see if I won a free song. Not worth it to me. But since I got a code, I thought I'd just share it here for anyone who's less stingy with personal information:

It may be invalid now -- I entered the code and a fake email, but that just took me to a new screen asking for all sorts of additional info.

I've played at least 20ish times now and not once did I ever see that stupid bean come close. This morning I watched it slowly slide along an invisible horizontal line until it cleared any area close to falling in the cup. This seems more like one of those un-winnable (is that even a word?) carnival games, except some of you are actually winning something... Yes, this is me being jealous... :mad: :p

Holy Schnutz!!! You guys are never going to believe what happened to me tonight.

I was surfing the web and remembered to enter into the promotion again today. So i did the thing and the bean went into the cup. I though "yay I won something."

And then all of a sudden this screen came up that said "yada yada yada you have won 200 itunes downloads"

And I was like [ELLEN FEISS]...uuuuh?[/ELLEN FEISS]

And then I checked my email and realised that this was real and that I won 200 itunes downloads!!!

I now have more itunes than I know what to do with so I'm selling this over here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=189171) if anyones interested.

So yea moral of the story....this is a good ****** game! Play it!

I don't think it matters where you drop the bean from. I think it's preselected whether you're a winner or not. You just need to play at the right time.

I hate the invisible pegs !!!
Seriously, I know it's predetermined before I drop the bean, but still, enough with the invisible pegs. I've played maybe 20 times and so far, rien. But, I've got 3 addresses going, so hopefully my time will come.

And killuminati, congrats!

I've won two drinks, but the closest Caribou Coffee shop isn't anywhere near me. Gaaahhh...

Played about a dozen times, haven't won once. I was trying it with a teacher when there was nothing to do and he also said he hasn't won in around a half dozen or so times.

I just won today for the first time in about 20 tries, but I live in France and thus am kind of far from my nearest Caribou coffee. Anyone know if I can give my code to someone closer?

Edit: just got the email telling me a gift certificate will be mailed to me, no code to share.

Just won for the first time (I play the free one every day.) Won a free drink... 'course I don't ever goto Caribou...

Anyway, I thought I'd mention that I knew I was going to win before I played because when I clicked "Go" it had to load the flash applet and it usually just pulls it from my cache.

The promotion ended 10 minutes ago. I played every day for 52 straight days and won zilch. As a result, I have no plans to ever visit a Caribou Coffee shop.

Blppppppppppppppph!

How'd you manage to do that considering the contest was from March 1 to April 7?

How'd you manage to do that considering the contest was from March 1 to April 7?Oops, I thought it started mid-February. So it was more like 38 days. But that doesn't improve my opinion of Caribou. In fact, I'll blame them for my misremembering the starting date because it seems like 52 days that they've been wasting my time.

That had to be the most annoying contest ever, or I'm just annoyed because my Pepsi win/loss percentage was about 50% or better. :p

Of course, I came back every morning for another game of invisible pegs. I did win a whole one coffee...for a coffee shop that isn't anywhere near me. :(
