The Glowden Cupspedition
As of September 30th, 2018 the inaugural Cupspedition has ended.
Over the course of the last 12 months, we dropped cups (unbreakable ones, of course) in 14 cities and 7 states and shared the stories on Instagram. We had a total of 12 cups found and there are still 4 missing!
Congratulations to our overall Grand Prize Getaway winner, Laura T! She found her Glowden Cup in Austin, Texas. She generously donated her $100 winnings to Austin Wildlife Rescue. We thought that was amazing and have decided to match her donation to the organization, along with the prize money never claimed with those 4 missing cups, by donating a full case of custom pints to Austin Wildlife Rescue.
Thank you to all that participated and followed us on this journey. We have a lot of fun surprises in store for our Sili-fans in the coming months, please stay tuned!
Gather your treasure hunting gear
Silipint is excited to announce our inaugural Cupspedition Treasure Hunt! We aim to motivate all good-time seekers to find time in their busy lives for exploration. It’s an adventure, so ignite your inner child, call up your BFF, and get excited to find hidden treasure, in this case, a cup. Each cup wins you cash and is an entry toward an expense-paid trip for two!
In short, the Cupspedition is a treasure hunt for our “Glowden Silipints”. As our Cupster Crew travels around to different cities and events we will be “dropping cups” at selected businesses and points-of-interest in hidden spots. Don’t worry, when we drop cups, they don’t break!
What’s in the Cup?
Inside of each of the Glowden Cups will be a golden ticket, each ticket is a cash prize voucher for $100! These cups are ridiculously hard to miss. Just be on the lookout for bright yellow (like neon highlighter, kissed-by-the-sun yellow) glow-in-the-dark Silipints.
How To Stay Updated
This treasure hunt includes anywhere and everywhere you go. We realize that’s a broad map, so the best way to begin your hunt is to first have the tools: Follow @Silipint on Instagram and watch for clues on our Instagram stories as to where we hide them so you can be the first to find them!
If You Find a Glowden Cup
If you find one of the Glowden Cups, follow the directions on the golden ticket inside to claim your cash prize as well as be entered into the Grand Prize Getaway to Bend, Oregon during the 2018-2019 ski season. This trip for two includes flight and hotel accommodations, as well as two chairlift passes to Mt. Bachelor.
Don’t worry, if you don’t find a Glowden Cup you can still be entered to win the Grand Prize Getaway just by getting into the spirit of Cupspeditioning! (that’s now a word)
- Take a selfie with your own Silipint and note where you’re at, what you’re up to and who you’re fun-having with (if anyone!).
- Post it to Instagram or Facebook
- Tag @Silipint and use #cupspedition.
That’s it! You’ll then be in the running for the trip for two to Bend, Oregon during the 2018-2019 ski season.
Please note: By posting with #cupspedition, you’re granting Silipint permission to repost any really super cool and fun ones on our other social channels and marketing stuff to help us spread the word.
Finally – once you’ve gotten yourself in the running, either by participating in the treasure hunt or posting some awesome photos with #cupspedition, our panel of judges here at Silipint will choose the photo with the best engagement and name one very lucky winner on October 5, 2018. The cooler the photo, the better the engagement, and the more points you get – so get creative!
Happy navigating & good luck!
