Posted by tamar.riley | 27 November
Hasbro have tied up with Pizza Hut UK for a Christmas promotion across their Party Game range, which includes top sellers Taboo, Cranium, Trivial Pursuit and Scattergories. The promotion, through TLC Marketing UK and headlined Party Games Night, entitles each game purchaser to a free, large pizza from Pizza Hut.
Martin Rowe, Brand Manager at Hasbro says ‘We’re proud to announce this promotion encouraging Hasbro customers to gather their friends and family around the table in the run up to Christmas, to create the ultimate Party Games Night.’
Jack Trodd, Business Development Manager at TLC UK says ‘Connecting the sociability of playing a board game with a takeaway pizza at the point of sale is a great way to introduce some emotion into a purchase decision. And the fact that every single pack gets the Reward is another powerful nudge.’
Customers will find a unique code in pack, redeemable at www.partygamesnight.com.
Multiple retailers are participating in the promotion including Toys R Us, ASDA Argos, Tesco, WH Smiths, Toymaster and other independent retailers. They will display promotional merchandising units within stores across the coming weeks and the campaign will run up until 31st December 2014.
