Have you seen this latest fun, interactive, online game for Telus created by Launchfire? Here it is - a super, simple, and interactive game that engages consumers! Each month between March and November 2009 Telus are giving away nine $1,000 Staples’ gift certificates - topped off by a single grand prize of a $20,000 Staples’ gift certificate in November. Have some fun by going to http://playthegame.telus.com/ where simple brainage-type games are scattered between subtle user focused ads matching players’ login profiles. This online game cleverly delivers advertising messages with accuracy while also building an email database of users.
