As of today, all participating 7-Eleven stores in the United States and Canada should have BuyEarnPlay items in stock that give you the opportunity to earn some solid Mafia Wars rewards.
Here is how it works:
1. Go to 7-11, look for specially marked products. Each product has a sticker with a code on it.
2. With your code in hand, visit http://www.buyearnplay.com.
3. Sign in with your Facebook account and enter your code, and you get the item. It's actually pretty easy.
When you click Play Now, you will be taken to the in game display of whatever item you earned:
Different in-store items yield different in-game items. Here is how it breaks down:
In-store Item: In-game Item
7-Select Chips: Palermo Prowler (vehicle; 44 attack, 19 defense)
Big-Gulp (make sure to get the Mafia Wars cup): Trio Diva (vehicle; 25 attack, 45 defense)
Mafia Wars Game Card: Combat Helmet (armor; 22 attack, 46 defense)
Slurpee (make sure to get the Mafia Wars cup): Showman (weapon; 46 attack, 27 defense)
Large Coffee: Lone Wolf (weapon; 44 attack, 30 defense)
Chicken Tenders, Pizza Slice, Big Bite, Chicken Wings, Large Pizza, or Breakfast Quesadilla: Sleek Bulletproof Vest (armor; 45 attack, 23 defense)
Go-Go Taquitos, Roller Burritos, Hashbrowns, Potato Wedges: (31 attack, 45 defense)
After turning in your first item, you get access to the Mafia Wars Corner Store Collection:
The items are very easy to get; as the picture states, the Brain Freeze, Behind Bars, Cup of Coffee, Plastic Lighter, and Scratcher all come from jobs, while the Hotdog and Mafi-O's Snack Pack come from fights. They drop very quickly and are very easy to get.
For vaulting the collection, you will receive a 22LR (weapon; 46 attack, 28 defense):
As you can see from the picture above, the real prize is the +50 skill points. To get this reward, you must earn 8 points on the BuyEarnPlay site and complete the collection.
You can buy any of the items listed above and then enter the codes on the BuyEarnPlay website to get your +50 skill points reward.
The "five to eight" codes refers to the fact that all the food items mentioned above will earn you one point (need to buy 8 food items), while buying a Mafia Wars game card will earn you 2 points.
Win a 7-11 Gift Card!
To celebrate this promotion, an advertising agency working with 7-Eleven has given me ten $10 gift cards to give away to readers of the site. You will be able to easily net the 50 skill point reward with $10.
Here are the rules:
- Write in 75 words or less why you deserve a gift card in the comments section of this post. Be creative. There are 10 cards to go around!
- Make sure you include your first name, last initial, and an e-mail address so I can let you know if you won. You should probably break down your e-mail address so that it looks like mafiawarsguide at gmail.com to keep yourself safe from spam-bots.
- All 10 winners will be selected in 72 hours.
- USA entries only. Sorry to my international readers, but the contest isn't open to people outside of the USA and Canada due to legality issues and I'd prefer to stay out of trouble!
