Good Morning America

Post by dianep2 » Fri Apr 22, 2016 8:58 am

Hey there Cracker Jack Friends,

Did any of you watch "Good Morning America" today? I just caught the tail end of a story they were doing. I believe they were talking about Cracker Jack and their new "blip" promotion. Just wondered if anyone else saw it.

I did not see it Di, but I will keep an eye out for it and post the video if I find it.

Until then, here's a video by Blippar about the new prizes.

It probably has something to do with the tweet GMA made earlier today...

Say what!? Cracker Jack will no longer have a physical prize inside. It's all going digital. SIGH.

Personally I think it just lazy reporting. Obviously there are prizes in the box (stickers), the digital stuff is just a bonus. Sadly, I don't think anyone reports the news anymore.

The Today show also talked about the new prizes. They said "Cracker Jack is getting rid of the prize, instead you're going to find stickers containing digital codes. Those codes will lead you to baseball inspired games that you can play on your phone."

I'd hate to tell them, but the prize have been stickers for years. So nothing has changed, except they've added phone games to the stickers.

The entire Today Show video talking about it can be seen here --> http://www.today.com/food/cracker-jack- ... des-t87811
