Rolly Button Program returns

Jen redeemed her Rolly Buttons for
back issues for her husband.
We're excited about bringing back the Rolly Button Program (this link takes you to the complete program details, how to earn charts, and prize redemption charts).

In a "halfshell" this is what it's all about:
  1. Do stuff around the store or online and earn Rolly Buttons
  2. Save them up until you have enough for the prize you want
  3. Redeem them for the prize
Some things have changed.

For example, now Rolly Buttons may only be earned once per day. So if you Snap a comic book review, you earn 1 Rolly Button, and then have to wait until the next day to earn more.

Rolly Buttons redeemed for free back issues!
Also, you may only earn up to 3 buttons per week -- EXCEPT for the one exception: you earn 4 Rolly Buttons for writing a pre-approved blog post (we have some submission guidelines). For writing a blog post, you'll receive the buttons the week following when your post hits the blog, and you won't be eligible for any more buttons that week.

Got Rolly Buttons? Spend 'em.
Email ronnie @ empirescomics.com to discuss a post you might like to write.

Prize levels are lower. Our top prize level used to be 50. Now it's 39.

There are new prizes. We'll be adding more as we think of them. Suggestions are welcome. What would you like to earn?

Give the program a try. It's really easy. We also thought carefully about what we thought would be cool to have you share...

We've tried to design it so that the things you post are ultra-annoying to your friends on social media. For example, you could post a picture of your favorite painting from Empire's Art Gallery.

A second thing we wanted to accomplish is to promote the love of comics, comic book art, and comic book reading. Thus, the comic book review option or the post sharing your favorite pick of the week. Comics are cool and we think everyone should give them a try -- whether they buy them from us or from some other Sacramento shop.

We hope you enjoy the revamped Rolly Button Program and we look forward to hearing your feedback.
