Yesterday at the movie theatre, I ran across I Am Number Four’s movie poster and of course, the first thing I saw was the QR code.
Without any instructions.
Without any hint of what’s in it for me.
Could the TEXT call-to-action be a clue? A chance to win?
I scanned. Got a white “Web page not available” page.
I texted. Got a “The GuestAssist service requires a valid keyword. Please check the keyword and try again or visit www.qtags.com for support.”
I gave up.
Today, just to see, I revisited the web page. Still nothing. But when I check it on my computer (vs. mobile) I find out the sweepstakes has ended.
This is the problem with codes that lead to time-sensitive information. There comes a point to where it doesn’t work.
I wonder if it worked even when it worked?
I am #fail.
