    so if you dont have a white name then no deal for you. i guess this offsets those free afl ticket for foreign passport holder deal.

      And if they picked a bunch of uncommon names, everyone would complain that they just did that so they don't have to give away any drinks.

        mohammed is the most common name why it's not on the list?

        Also for the people com[plaining its discrimination, what about the free AFL tickets for foreing pastports only? that is more discriminitory for people born here because there is a higher chance of some ethnic people having white names then aussie born aussies having a foreign passport.

        plus the value of a AFL ticket is more then a boost juice… or even 2 boost juice.

          Mohammed is the most common name in Aus? Don't think so.
          Regardless why would they use the most common name?

          @chipstss:
          As a teacher, I have seen a lot of 'Mohammad's followed by Ahmeds and 'Abdul's.

          It's the Middle-East's 'John' or 'Michael'.

          But, it's not the most popular name in AUS.

        •  

          Would it be more popular than 'Gisele'?

        Yes. Whoever is in charge of marketing and promotions needs to be sacked. This offer creates more bad will than good. Didn't they use to use birthdays? As in if your birthday is blah date you get a free drink. But also possible to give free drinks to people on their birthday. Lots of good ways to do it. This isn't one of them.

        •  

          They still do use birthdays. It's the only time I ever get a boost.

      Hey Suicine, actually they sometimes have Asian names on the list. So perhaps now you can divert your attention to a concern that is not factually erroneous.

      •  

        Well they need all demografic names too my sugested list would be

        1) Wang, Ching, Ping

        2) Shaniqua, Jamal, Moniqua

        3) mohammed, abdullah, Itesh

      "… so if you dont have a white name then no deal for you."

      Your post is not logical sui, because only one of those names means "white". If your name was Andrew or Emma, you'd be good to go. Let's keep it real, aye?

      "… so if you dont have a white name then no deal for you."

      How are these "white names" suiza? That famous basketballer, Andrew Harrison, he's black. And any kid will tell you that Emma, of "Wiggles" fame, is yellow. Please do a bit of research, prior to posting.

      Geez man.

    •  

      I think you mean 'Anglo'. There is no such thing as a 'white name'.

      The opposite would be true for name-based promotions in foreign countries, obviously.

      • +2 votes

        "There is no such thing as a 'white name'."

        I maintain that "Bianca" is a white name… and what about that famous chic, who hung out with all the dwarfs? Now you cannae get much whiter than her name. Even "Virginia" has sort of "white connotations", though it's not strictly a "white name" I guess. Then there's "Purity" (i.e. of hue)… sort of implies whiteness. "Daisy"; the statement "Daisies are white" is a true statement, and the same applies to "misty"; mist is white, therefore something (or indeed, someone) that is "misty" would be presumed to be white. Even "Crystal"… usually white. Lastly, there was this bird I hung out with at uni and we all used to call her "Roxy", because she was an obsessive peROXIde blonde. But I suppose that one's a bit of a stretch.
        Still though, there's heaps of white names.

      •  

        There is no such thing as a 'white name'.

        well Bianca literally means white. So it truly is a white name.

        •  

          You truly didn't 'get' that I pointed that out a few times above h-dog? Sheesh…

    •  

      I know plenty of non white peeps with white names where I'm white and unless they allow shortened versions of names I'm unlikely to get a free drink anytime soon

    To all the people complaining- this is why we can't have nice things.

    Instead of some people getting a FREE Boost, you'll make a big deal out of this and companies will eventually choose not to run promos like this at all so nobody will get it.

    Think of it like a lottery- a small number of people win out of pure luck of the draw. It's not life being unfair or a mass conspiracy. It's a Boost Juice FFS!

    • -3 votes

      Yes it is a nice for some people to get free boost but why cant they be more considerate about it.

      Why cant they do something like birth date instead?

      Surely a lot less discriminating and wont just be mostly targeting a particular race in a multicultural Country.

      • +6 votes

        you do realise that you get a free boost on your birthday if you have a member card and its also for free. So, I believe that it's nice of them to try and add other non-white names into it.

        • +2 votes

          "… you get a free boost on your birthday"

          Well that is severely unfair for those born on February 29th. I'm going to lodge a complaint of discrimination with the equal opportunity council, to have this outrageously inequitable distribution of free juice halted immediately.
          Someone needs to dare to tackle the big issues.

      Just tell them that the entire first two words of your name are silent, and that the last word is pronounced "PAGE". If your name is PAGE surely you'll GET A TURN.

  • MOD — Boost Juice has requested "confidential information" to be removed, which I presume would be the "name of the day" list OP has obtained. It is now removed from the most recent revision on the post content. Please note

    • Do not post the names here until the list has been announced through Boost Juice's official channels.
    • Comments & posts releasing the names will be removed.
    • This post stays published for discussion of this event.
    • If things go out of hand here, we'll be closing comments and unpublish this post.

      I wonder if they would change the names now? Will be interesting.

        suicine94 (mainly just so that she'll stf up)
        Wang (for the panda's sake)
        Rumplestiltskin (I'm just being selfish here; but someone has to fight for… me [sniff])

    Sounds OK deal - see it's bad if your name is like uncommon or unusual. Reckon its intended to produce more visitors without publishing names. But I agree, no point publishing deal if we can't see names. Not really a freebie if it requires correct names… Kinda a Gray line.

    EDIT: How is this a game (name of promo)? Its more like "if your parents named you correctly for a free drink."

      ah that's it. neg.
      3 reasons, one the above,
      two, most votes are simply from users being impressed that this "deal" was posted earlier than Boost intended.
      and three, like The Land of Smeg said below this isn't a deal, more of a competition or lottery.

    •  

      Exactly, Boost Juice really are a bunch of tight arseholes. They never make any real deals and even if you do end up qualifying in one of their shitty contests they still don't pay up properly. I don't see the reason for their tightness, as at the end of the day their products are high-markup items - the cost price of fruit is very low and they sell it for very high, so I find it hard to believe that it would be so difficult to run a genuine promotion to get feet in the door than to resort to these gimmicks/scams.
