The Edy’s brand has announced they will be partnering with FarmVille through the summer in a new promotion for players (and Edy’s lovers, of course).
Beginning on June 1, players can enter codes they may find on specially marked packages of Edy’s and Dreyer’s Fruit Bars. What’s so great about these codes? A chance at free Farm Cash.
The participating products
Here’s what you should be on the lookout for at your local store:
- Fruit Bars Strawberry 6 pack
- Fruit Bars Lime 6 pack
- Fruit Bars Coconut 6 pack
- Fruit Bars Variety 6 pack
Purchasing a product with a code does not guarantee you will win Farm Cash. You’ll enter the code on the special website set up for it at www.edys.com/farmvillecash. If you’re a winner, the Farm Cash will be awarded via a physical game card.
Players can enter up to three codes per day, and there’s no limit on the number of times they can win a Farm Cash prize. Remember, not every code will be a winner.
Need a code? Get free ones!
If you can’t find Edy’s or Dreyer’s products near you, don’t worry. You can still play up to three times a day with FREE CODES. In order to get your free codes, just go to edys.com/farmvillecash and click the “Get Code” button. A code will automatically be generated for you. From there, all you’ll need to do is enter your email address and name. If you’re a winner, you will know instantly. This is the alternate, no purchase necessary method of entering, and we think it’s pretty awesome that you can do it three times a day.
How much can I win?
A total of 500,000 Farm Cash will be given away to players who enter the special codes. Most winners will win 50 Farm Cash, but the possibilities also include 100, 500 and 1000 Farm Cash as well. This sounds like an excellent offer, especially considering you get to enjoy the ice cold snack you’ve just purchased as well! 50 players will win 1000 Farm Cash, 250 players will win 500 Farm Cash, 1500 players will win 100 Farm Cash, and 3500 players will win 50 Farm Cash.
This giveaway will be open to US residents 18 and older from June 1, 2011 through October 31, 2011.
Edy’s and Dreyer’s: What’s the difference?
If you’re in the western states and Texas, you’ll find Dreyer’s branded products. If you’re on the east or in the midwest, you’ll be looking for Edy’s products. Same product, different name. Both products are manufactured the same way and have the same great taste.
Both the Edy’s Fruit Bars and Dreyer’s Fruit Bars Facebook pages already have a FarmVille Farm Cash Giveaway tab set up, so be sure to go give them a like.
If you’re not sure where to buy Edy’s or Dreyer’s Fruit Bars, you can use this handy online tool to search by location AND flavor (and there’s a lot of flavors to choose from).
Heading to FarmVille
Another cool part of this promotion involved Edy’s/Dreyer’s sending real FarmVille players to participate in planting on an actual orchard in FarmVille, VA. The folks at Edy’s were kind enough to send us this quote from a player who gets to take part in this real-life planting project:
“Being from Los Angeles, I thought the only way I’d get to plant an orchard was on my beautiful virtual farm! But now, thanks to Dreyer’s/Edy’s Fruit Bars and Zynga, I am getting ready to dig in and plant fruit trees in the real town of Farmville,” –Sharyn Martinez
This real-life FarmVille trip is brought to us by the Communities Take Root project, and it’s definitely worth checking out this cause. You can vote for communities in your area to help them get their own orchard too!
Some lucky players have already found codes on packages. If you’re one of them, remember you can’t use them until June 1. Hang on to them! We’ll be redeeming the codes when it’s time at www.edys.com/farmvillecash.
