#PaniniWildCard Promo Preparing for NFL Conference Championship Weekend

January 18, 2013


The first two weekends of Panini America’s wildly popular (pun intended) #PaniniWildCard promotion have been nothing short of a social-media, Twitter-frenzy free-for-all. That promises to continue this weekend as we honor the NFC and AFC Conference Championship Games. But this time, we’re switching things up just a bit.

We want you to visit your local hobby shop or mass retail outlet anytime between now and kickoff on Sunday, buy a box of Panini America product, open it at that location and Tweet us a pic — using the #PaniniWildCard hash tag — of you doing just that. We’ll start awarding boxes as prizes during the first quarter of the NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons and continue awarding at least one box per quarter through the end of the AFC Championship Game between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots.

Oh, and since we know not everyone has a hobby shop or card-carrying retail outlet near them, we’re also going to randomly reward boxes to four customers who make a purchase this weekend at using the WildCard promo code.

And here’s one more thing while we’re on the topic: If the #PaniniWildCard hash tag trends (for the third consecutive weekend) at any point during Sunday’s conference championship games, we’re going to randomly award boxes to four lucky followers.

So that’s the plan for this weekend. Got all that? We look forward to another fun-filled few days with the greatest collectors on the planet — and be sure to follow us on a Twitter so you don’t miss a thing.

    What about for people who don’t have cell phones that can do internet? Would a picture taken with a normal camera and then tweeted at home count?

    Guys I live 50 miles from the nearest retail and the nearest hobby is further than that…I don’t think this is very fair. Everybody should be able to participate in this..and I doubt I’m the only one in this boat. Any other way to get in this? Thanks

    What is the minimum purchase that would work under the ” at using the WildCard promo code” component?
    Also, would buying a box @ WalMart count as long as its Panini?

    • January 18, 2013 7:59 pm

      Yes, a box from Walmart would count — just remember to take the picture of you opening at Walmart.

    Thanks for responding it’s buying something at the website using the promo code and if #PaniniWildCard trends again..and PaniniWildCard is the promo code correct? Sorry I honestly always read the whole thing before skipping down..Not sure what happened there. My bad

      No problem at all, man. There was a lot to digest in that post. Those are two separate contests for those who don’t have a shop or retailer in their area:

      1) Buy any NFL product on using the WildCard promo code and you’re eligible to win one of four boxes of cards (winners will be selected at random on Monday)
      2) If we can get the #PaniniWildCard hash tag to trend again this weekend, we’ll give away another box to four of our followers

      Make sense?

        Can we post a pic of us with are cards on the blog?

      • January 19, 2013 7:52 am

        As long as it’s taken in your shop or retail outlet opening packs, sure.

  8. January 19, 2013 11:30 am

    Seriously, you guys go above and beyond for us Panini fanatics. No card shop near me but I do have a few hundred Walmarts and Targets in a 50 mile radius. lol

    Question…when you say box of Panini product, are blasters figured into this. Only boxes at Walmart and Target that aren’t opened. My nephew wants to try and win, he was SUPER jealous of my win last weekend. lol

    Ok, I was reading the rules on this and I think I may have messed up. 😦
    It says that I had to open the packs even at the store….I did not do that. The card store I bought them from was about 95% comics/Magic(the card game), etc…and they were having a huge Magic competition inside the store and was 100 degrees and smelled like b.o. I could barely walk in, let alone buy my cards and open them.
    So, my question is: will you allow it if I took a picture of me BUYING them at the store and opening them at home?

    I was at my local card shop all day but unfortunately I didnt have the extra money to buy anything. I am lucky to be able to shop at Fox Sports Cards though.
