TWIPerks for Those that Support TWIP!

Hello! My name is Jeff and I am editor and creator of This Week in Pinball. First off, thank you so much for reading TWIP and for all the support from the pinball community!

What are TWIPerks?  It is a corny combination of TWIP and Perks.  TWIP Perks.  TWIPerks.  My wife suggested shortening it to TWERKS 🙂

They are available to monthly supporters of TWIP, and come in five tiers that provide:

  • Automatic Entry into Monthly Giveaways
  • Free TWIP Swag
  • Exclusive Access

Visit the TWIPerks page here for details!

TWIPerks were introduced last month because I am trying to get more monthly support/subscribers to keep this site sustainable long term.  You will also be automatically included in the TWIPerks benefits if you support TWIP via PayPal.

I am humbly asking for you to consider supporting TWIP to help us keep the site running.

$5 a month would be a huge help to This Week in Pinball!

Thank you for your consideration!



Two ways to enter

1.    Consider making a monthly donation via the PayPal button below or Patreon, which you can find here.  You’ll automatically be entered each month you make a donation, and also get additional TWIPerks based on your giving level.  Your contribution will help support this website.

 

2.    Donate nothing, and send an email to thisweekinpinball@gmail.com to let us know you want to be entered, and include your name, address (including city and state), and email address, and you’ll be entered for that month.  You’ll just have to send the email every month to be included.

Please Note

Here is the bad news.  Unfortunately, we had to limit the giveaways to the United States, and also need to exclude New York, Florida, Rhode Island, and Puerto Rico.  Including those states or other countries was prohibitively expensive and complicated.  We’re disappointed too.  Sorry!!  But you can get all the other TWIPerks anywhere in the world!


The Giveaways

We are going to do a batch of giveaways every month.  Below under the “August Giveaways” are all the giveaways for August (that is pretty straightforward, right?).  Before we get to the August Giveaways, I want to give a teaser for some of the huge giveaways we will have down the road.

These next generation pinball rings are made from specially formulated silicone that provides a durable, easy to clean, vibrant replacement for standard pinball rubber. Our Competition rings are resistant to UV light and less susceptible to drying and cracking, giving them a much longer lifespan than traditional rubber.

All sizes and colors of Competition Rings are engineered to provide the classic feel of red flipper rubber (Shore A45), allowing you to change colors without compromising game play.

Make your machine look and play its best with Titan Competition Rings!
