Follow these simple instructions to get started:

1) Download the Fetch Rewards App to your phone from the App Store

2) Register

3) Use referral code 85UQ9 (enter on screen after birthday when registering) to earn BONUS Points when your first eligible receipt is scanned.

4) Start scanning receipts from your phone to the app (super easy instructions on the app). 

5) Share your referral code for even more points.

6) Enjoy your gift cards!

      Cruise for Free* with UR Comped

      If you're a casino gaming enthusiast and you're not partnering with URComped, you're missing out on fabulous offers for "free" cruises. First let me say, as any casino player will tell you, the level of comps in any land or sea casino is determined by the amount of one's play, therefore, "free" is not exactly free, but if you're going to gamble for entertainment anyway, don't you want to receive all the perks that are available, including a cruise for you and a guest? URComped helps maximize a player's comps and gives gaming enthusiasts an opportunity to sail on a variety of cruise lines for free* or at deeply-discounted rates. The company was the brainchild of Craig Shacklett, a former Casino Host on a popular cruise line, who noticed there were guests in the casino who had spent full price on their cruise fare and were gambling as much or more than the guests who received a comped stateroom on the same sailing. Craig soon realized these VIP-level guests would likely be willing to try several different cruise lines if there was a way to offer them a comped stateroom on their initial voyage. Similarly, the cruise lines would benefit with an increase in new customers who liked to gamble. Genius!

      URComped Founder, Craig Shacklett

      Players simply upload their best recent offer from a cruise line or land-based casino to the URComped website, and answer a few questions about their gaming background and loyalty levels. Once the information is verified, offers will start rolling in via email, this could take anywhere from a few moments to a few days. Initial offers could be anything from a deeply discounted stateroom to a fully comped cabin or suite. Nearly every offer uploaded qualifies for, at minimum, 30% off an MSC sailing or a complimentary 2-Day Cruise on Paradise Cruise Line. Of course, the more lucrative the offer that is uploaded is, the higher the value of the offers for the initial cruise will be. I uploaded an offer I received for a complimentary 7-Day Balcony Stateroom and within minutes received offers for a complimentary Interior Cabin for myself and a guest on 4 cruise lines with up to 9-day itinerary options on numerous sailings.

      URComped partners with many other cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Celebrity, and Holland America. *Port charges and taxes are additional on every line with the exception of MSC which includes all taxes and fees. The company also partners with land-based casinos, however, their focus right now is primarily on cruises. 

      Courtesy: Royal Caribbean

      Craig, along with co-founder Cale Sherry, and the entire UR Comped team are passionate about helping their clients maximize their loyalty benefits and they often share tips on doing so in their weekly Facebook Live videos. Business is booming at URComped thanks, in part, to happy clients spreading the word about the company, and as evident in Craig's videos, he couldn't be more grateful. URComped's service is completely complimentary {the company earns a commission from the cruise line based on a client's play on each sailing booked through them} and you have nothing to lose by uploading an offer to their website.

      Jarlsberg Sizzling Summer Burger Contest

      Jarlsberg® Cheese famous around the world for its nutty, mild and sweet flavor just launched a global recipe contest starring two best friends ~ burgers and cheese.  Cheese fans and all foodies can enter the Jarlsberg Sizzling Summer Burger contest from now until August 27, 2018. Entrants will have the chance to win exclusive Jarlsberg® Grill Kits every week and the grand prize is a Big Green Egg Grill, so that winners can re-create their favorite Jarlsberg® burgers, just in time for Labor Day weekend!

      Get inspired with Celebrity Chef George Duran's four distinctly different Jarlsberg® burger recipes, including one vegetarian burger and one burger with grilled pineapple slices in place of burger buns.

      Jarlsberg® Fondue Burger

      Each of Chef Duran’s four burger recipes offer a summer story and their own film: The Marvelous Meltdown, pictured above, features a Jarlsberg®Fondue Burger ~

      Burger Recipe (makes 4):
      1 tbsp. panko-style breadcrumbs
      1 tbsp. heavy cream
      1 1/2 lb minced beef
      2 garlic cloves, minced
      1 tbsp. salt
      1/4 tbsp. black pepper
      4 sesame burger buns
      Chopped scallions
      Red pepper flakes (optional)

      For the Jarlsberg® Fondue Sauce:
      2 tbsp. butter
      2 tbsp flour
      1 C. of whole milk
      1 1/2 C. of grated Jarlsberg® cheese

      1. In a small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and heavy cream until absorbed ( about 3 – 4 minutes).
      2. In a large bowl, mix the beef with the garlic and breadcrumb mixture until combined. Season with salt and pepper and form 4 large burgers. Make a large indentation in the middle of each burger and preheat your grill.
      3. In the meantime, make the Jarlsberg® cheese fondue sauce by melting the butter in a small saucepan and whisking in the flour. Whisk over a medium heat until browned. Slowly whisk in the milk and allow to thicken (about 3 – 4 minutes). Add the grated Jarlsberg® and whisk until smooth. Set some cheese aside.
      4. Grill each burger as desired, spread butter inside the buns and toast lightly. Arrange lettuce on the bottom half of the bun, followed by the burger. Then pour fondue sauce on top of the burger. Add the other half of the bun and pour more fondue sauce over the top.
      5. Garnish with scallions and red pepper flakes.
