Verizon is currently giving out rewards to its customers as part of its ‘#Minute50’ campaign that’s running up until Super Bowl 50.

The national campaign, which kicked off on Jan. 24 and will end on Feb. 7, sees the phone carrier rewarding Verizon customers every time the clock hits 6:50, 7:50, 8:50, etc.

Prizes include everything from Super Bowl 50 and 51 tickets to TVs, free data and NFL merchandise, according to the company – which will have handed out 336 rewards total once the campaign ends.

To enter, customers can text ‘Minute 50’ to the number ‘502016’ or can enter online at the campaign’s website.

Earlier this week, Verizon found itself in hot water with San Francisco, home of this year’s Super Bowl, for putting a massive advertisement on the side of a building that the city’s planning code deemed illegal.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, city attorney Dennis Herrara said that the commercial sign was “illegal and a public nuisance.” Visa was also ordered to remove a large building ad.

A spokeswoman for Verizon told the San Francisco Chronicle that the dispute was “the result of a misunderstanding between the city and the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee” and said that the company plans on taking down the giant ad.
