Platinum Badge Questions; Post them here.

Postby broken-and-lonely » Thu Jul 24, 2008 7:42 pm

I figured making a generic platinum badge post would be faster for the mods. Anyway, I do actually have a question too. Last year I bought a platinum badge and I never got a giftbag or w/e only a shirt. Were there any gift bags even?

P.S. I dont know how this got posted in 2007 memories when I clicked the post a new topic thing in registration.... Can someone move this? O.o

The t-shirt voucher was in the gift bags. The gift bags looked just like the regular bags, but had a few extra items in it. The three vouchers were the big ticket items, but the was also some designer soaps that had been provided by one of the companies that sent us stuff. (i think it was some liquid soaps but i don't remember exactly) i know that a small number of platinum members didn't get the soaps as there weren't enough. but if you got the vouchers and a bag with the program guide and such in it, then you did get the bag. (I know we ran out of physical bags sometime satuerday, man there were alot of people last year)

So what exactly is special about the gift bags for Platinum except for the shirt?

I don't usually don't go to any of the stuff like the Masquerade for the seating to come in handy, nor do I care that much about the whole special access stuff (Not that it wouldn't be nice, but it's not essential to me), but I do care about the shirt, tourney, and Maid Cafe, which by my math without a Platinum that would cost $75 with a regular registration, so I'm kind of on the fence about a Platinum and I'm wondering what the extra stuff in the bag is to decide whether it's worth it for me to go Platinum :| .

Thanks :wink: .

What ends up in the gift bags varies from year to year. It mostly depends on what swag we have access to. (this is why we don't say what it is, we won't know until almost con time.)
