MINI Motoring app by MINI Financial Services

MINI Motoring app

MINI Financial Services has released an app called “MINI Motoring”.  It is available for both Android and Apple devices.  From MINI USA News:

The all-new “MINI MOTORING” mobile app provides the ability for users to discover the best roads in more than 50 countries, as well as rank, comment and share those roads via Facebook, email or other GPS devices. MINI Financial Services’ customers enjoying the app also gain exclusive access to “gamified” features, including receiving rewards by completing certain actions in the app or by utilizing various financial account services.

After a simple login, MINI Financial Services customers can start earning points through usage (e.g. posting new roads, commenting on other roads) or by signing up for electronic invoicing or paperless statements. The more points received, the more rewards can be unlocked. Currently, the rewards are quality MINI images which can be used as backgrounds on phones, desktop images or to share with friends. Plans for future rewards include winning promotional items or other MINI-centric prizes.

Previously we featured the John Cooper Works card game, a JCW accessories “brochure” in the form of a deck of playing cards.

Today we have another playing card deck “brochure”: the Fussgängerzonen Stars MINI Collection cards from Germany.  The “Super Quartett” card game is also the MINI Collection 2004 catalog.

The 33 card deck (32 playing cards plus one instruction card) came in a clear plastic case.  One the back of each card is the slogan “IT’S NOT A CAR.”.  The front features a different item from the MINI Collection.  The object of the game is to collect sets of four cards A1-A4 through H1-H4.

LET’S SCORE SOME GOOD KARMA. Let’s reward ourselves for avoiding pedestrians. Let’s rack up points on the way to the office, the movies and the dentist. Let’s add it all up to prove we’re the best at doing good. Let’s try not to rub it in. LET’S MOTOR.

Players get points while motoring around and accomplishing tasks such as waving (5 points), getting a trucker to honk (15 points), motoring naked (40 points), and giving someone a jump (100 points).
