I missed the Lockerz redemption again. I have waited for the redemption site to open after their announcement that the General Redemption will happen anytime soon (today). So I have conditioned myself and even opened two browsers for Lockerz Facebook page and Lockerz official site. I kept on refreshing both just to check if the redemption will be announced.
An hour ago, I had to go to another workstation to attend to an important request. When I get back to my station, the redemption site had been opened for 30 minutes! When I logged in to the redemption site, here's what I have found.
Everything has been freshed-out and the only available item for redemption is that iMac computer (I don't have enough points for the item!) I checked the Paypal category instead (hoping I could exchange my points to some Paypal funds). Maybe I could wish -
I have been a member since October 2009 and I haven't gotten the chance to redeem any of the items from Lockerz.
Okay, you may be wondering what is Lockerz and why I am soo frustrated.. You may refer to the Q&A below:
What is Lockerz?
Lockerz is an invitation-only worldwide community where members can find entertainment, shopping and a full social network all on one website. Members are rewarded for almost everything they do on the site—whether it’s buying a new brand, watching a video, playing a game, answering a daily question or even just logging in. At launch, Lockerz will have more than 15 ways for members to earn PTZ.
What types of products can be purchased at Lockerz?
We’ve partnered with thousands of the best brands and stores. Starting in early 2010, we’ll offer you the latest and greatest in every category — electronics, designer gear, stylish accessories, sports equipment, and more. Members will soon be able to purchase digital assets such as music, videos, art, and decals.
What can you do with PTZ on Lockerz?
PTZ can be used only on www.lockerz.com right now for free prizes in PTZ Place™, for entering amazing sweepstakes as many times as you want in the same contest, and for charity donations. After launch, PTZ may be used for discounts on items for sale, free shipping, VIP experiences across the globe as well as free prizes and charity donations in PTZ Place.
What does “More Soon” mean?
We are working to get you more products in PTZ Place because the overwhelming early response to Lockerz blew right through our inventory. We will re–stock PTZ Place on a periodic basis.
When is the next “restock” happening?
Due to huge traffic issues, we are no longer pre–announcing re–stock dates. Stay tuned to the hallway for news about the redemption.
Does Lockerz ship internationally?
Yes. Keep in mind that you will be responsible for any incoming taxes or duties into your country if your country does not deem a free prize as a gift. Check out this link to better understand what duties and taxes you might have to pay:http://fedex.com/us/international/irc/profiles/?link=2. We are working to find distribution partners to help us reduce any taxes, duties, or other governmental fees you may owe for incoming shipments
When will I get my shipment (i.e., Redeemed PTZ Place prize, Purchased Order)?
From the time we confirm member eligibility or other qualification, product availability, and other information regarding such goods, please allow two weeks for delivery in the U.S., 14–21 days outside of the U.S.
How many accounts can I have?
Members are entitled to one account per person. Each eligible person within a household can have their own account.
How will Lockerz make money?
Starting in early 2010, you will be able to purchase products at Lockerz. But don’t worry; PTZ Place will still be around, with even more prizes and experiences. Members will be able to earn PTZ when they buy, watch, play, share, invite friends, or simply show up on Lockerz. PTZ will be redeemable for both products and experiences.
When will Lockerz launch?
Lockerz is launching in stages. PTZ Place, Lockerz’ Prize Redemption Center, is now live. Other components will be launched soon. The complete site will be launched in early 2010.
If not for the free shirt that I have received last month, I would think that Lockerz is a scam. I got the shirt for being a Z-lister (I was able to refer 20 friends). Too bad for those who registered late, Lockerz no longer give out free Z-lister shirt. Or maybe you can find the shirt in Ebay or in the Lockerz store.
Anyway, for those who would want to be invited to Lockerz, please send me a note and your email address.
Update from Lockerz! There would be another redemption tom as the required points posted today were too high.
I am not losing hope. I could get that iTouch or iPad, soon..
