Chuck E. Cheese’s Valentine’s Pinterest Contest #FlatChuckE

UPDATE: Winners have been announced here.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and I am so happy to be able to tell you about this ah-MAZING Pinterest Contest that is being sponsored by Chuck E. Cheese’s! If you haven’t been to Chuck E. Cheese’s yet, why not? Chuck E. Cheese’s is a great all-year round place to let the kids (and the kids at heart!) burn off some steam. If you are having the same unconscionably cold temps that we are having in NYC, then Chuck E. Cheese’s is a warm fun place to escape with arcade games and even to have a bite to eat.

How Pin-tastic!

Do you have a Pinterest account? If not, again I say why not? First things first you will need to sign up for a Pinterest account to enter this fantastic contest. But hold on, before you go you probably want to know what you can win.

Five people will win a month’s worth of Family trips to Chuck E. Cheese’s!

It’s really easy to be in to win, so read on and then get to pinning! Contest opens January 31 at 10AM EST and closes on February 12th at 11:59 PM EST.


I'm entering the Dinner with Chuck E. Pinterest Contest! #FlatChuckE

Pin this! Hover over the image in the upper right hand corner!

  1. Follow @ChuckECheese  and @Ghada on Pinterest.
  2. Create a board and title it “Dinner with Chuck E.
  3. Pin the Official Announcement graphic above to your board and tag it #FlatChuckE (by writing #FlatChuckE  in the comments box, you are tagging it).
  4. Pin the downloadable Flat Chuck E. from the Chuck E. Cheese’s website and tag it with #FlatChuckE
  5. Ok, this is where it gets really fun! Print out your Flat Chuck E., dress him up with colored crayons (tinsel, and feathers optional) and then take him for a spin on the town. We’re interested in seeing where you take your Flat Chuck E. Will it be to a playground, a restaurant, a friend’s house? Wherever you go with Flat Chuck E., take a picture then upload it to your board using the “Add” button from within your board. Choose “Upload a Pin” then browse to your picture of Flat Chuck E. out on the town and upload it. You have to tag this one #FlatChuckE as well.  You can upload more than one picture, but you only need one uploaded picture to be in to win. Don’t forget to tag it with #FlatChuckE
  6. You’re done! BUT to be officially entered you MUST link to your board in the comments from this Official Announcement Pin.

Got it? Make sure you’ve pinned the 3 images mentioned in steps 3, 4 and 5 and comment on Pinterest with a link to your pin, it’s that easy. Need inspiration for your board, then check out my example board. Don’t worry, even though I’d like to enter I can’t :)

Good Luck and see you back here on February 15 for the winners announcement.

    why is it that everything has to be done on-line….we can’t afford to go to Chucky Cheese’s more than once a year and we can’t afford to have a computer with internet! We have to go to the library or a friends house to access it….when will there be a contest where “middle-income/low-income regular joe” can have the chance to win, let alone, enter.

    • Confused
      January 31, 2013 | 8:17 am

      Seriously.. you can’t afford to go to Chuck E Cheese more than once a year? Last time I brought my family of 4 to Chuck E Cheese it cost less than $40. I’m sorry but I think your comment and gripe about this contest is a little pathetic. If you can’t afford to spend $40 occasionally on your family, perhaps you really shouldn’t have kids in the first place. The middle-income average Joe as you called it.. can afford Chuck E Cheese. Apparently you are living some kind of homeless person lifestyle.

        Wow what is your beef? I’m not the original poster, but seriously, you’ve got issues. When I had kids my financial situation was a lot better than it is today with the recession and economic turmoil. Anyway, who are you to judge whether someone should have kids or not? Who are you to judge someone’s worthiness based on their extra cash?

        January 31, 2013 | 8:51 am

        How dare you down play someone’s financial situation? Just because you are fortunate enough, that doesn’t mean everyone else is. If you claim to be as financially well off as you make it seem, then why were you entering this contest?

      • Wow
        January 31, 2013 | 2:29 pm

        Who are you to judge anyone???
        $40 that is funny. My family of 4 when there and dropped almost a $150 on tockets and pizza. I also had coupons to go.. Why dont you think before you say something like that. Open mouth and their goes your foot right in it. Maybe you dont know what is going on under their roof. Okay. Like god for bid something is wrong with one of her children. Or lost one of their jobs. Dont be so quick to judge someone you dont know..

        You have obviously never been there! Being a “middle income family” is just like being poor; it is hard! I am a middle income single mom and I haven’t been to Chuck E Cheese in years! We are lucky to have a car and insurance and a roof over our heads, cuz after the necessities, I have only gas money left! We go to a food bank and get our Internet at a discount from Comcast!

        confused- I am going to cut you a break. I can’t assume I know your situation or what kind of day you are having but I certainly hope it’s just a bad day. I personally feel that it is far worst to be a mean spririted, cold hearted mother than a poor one. I hope you consider that when you look at your children. Maybe you shouldn’t have had any kids in the first place. Kelly-I have been there and I hope your situation changes soon.

    Hey Kelly, we don’t have computer, tv, but we have smart phone. I’m going to draw #FlatChuckE and take a pic with our phone and upload. The librarians are pretty cool with us coz they see us all the time and it costs us $0.10 to print a page. Anyway, when we go to chuck e cheese there are coupons for free tokens. Like 4 per child and there are these tunnel tubes that are fun for the kids to go through. My son really loves chuck e cheese and saves his allowance to go. I totally understand how you feel, but chuck e is fun even without tokens:)

    SO if it not available to us here in Canada then why send us this information? I mean I signed up for this in Canada and I gave my Canadian address. You need to take a little more time and send these contests to the people in the right country.
