McDonald’s and Coca-Cola BFF Timeout App, a Cool Way to Get Most Out of LifeFriday, May 30, 2014
When I first tried the newest app in town, the McDonald’s and Coca-Cola BFF Timeout App I was like, Wow! I had the best moments of my life with my friends. Imagine an hour of not touching our gadgets and just had each other’s exciting sharing of stories and talking almost everything about our lives to catch up on what’s going on with each and every one of us straight from their mouth was something fulfilling. Yeah, I am more sentimental like that, I’d rather hear it from them than saw and read it from their social media accounts. Why? Well, you can feel their emotion – whether it is excited, sad, happy or just plainly exaggerating things. Plus, the facial expressions and gestures once they started to tell story are the best moments that stays in your mind for the longer period of time. It is full of life!
Now, we can enjoy uninterrupted minutes of real-world connections with the McDonald’s and Coca-Cola BFF Timeout App! With the recent launch of the #BetterTogether campaign, McDonald’s and Coca-Cola took a stand and asked people to stay offline a little longer to celebrate real-world connections. Encouraging its customers to spend time with one another over a McDonald’s meal and a Coca-Cola drink, the two iconic brands introduced the BFF Bundles, meals best shared with friends, enabling them to experience moments of genuine connection anytime, anywhere.
In order to amplify and sustain the #BetterTogether campaign’s big idea of inspiring people to enrich their friendships by being physically together, McDonald’s and Coca-Cola have developed a new mobile app that will make bonding time even more exciting—the BFF Timeout App.
A fun new way to bring friends closer together, the BFF Timeout App is a gaming app which challenges players to go on a “digital timeout” with friends—to celebrate real-world connections without digital interruptions, such as checking their mobile phones. Customers just have to download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store on their iOS or Android phones, log in with their Facebook accounts or play as a guest, invite friends to play, and spend minutes, or even hours, gadget-free. Hooray for that! The longer time you spend with your friends, the more happy moments created.
The game is very simple yet offers a fun challenge to those who find themselves often glued to their smartphones and handheld gadgets, as one can earn badges for more minutes played. The longer you and your friends go on a timeout, the better the reward! Better watch the video below on how to use the Timeout app.
And here’s the exciting part, more than being able to play a game with the gang, friends also have the chance to take their timeout to a fun destination! Until July 19, 2014, every purchase of a BFF Burger or Chicken Bundle for three or four comes with a coupon. Each coupon contains a code, which must be entered in the app to qualify for a chance to win a free trip for four! Prizes include a trip to Boracay on the first raffle draw, Coron, Palawan on the second, Singapore on the third and Osaka, Japan on the final draw. Oh my, Japan please!
