Here's how you get Thumbuddies for your collection

You collect Thumbuddy e-trading cards by finding claim codes in the print magazine or anywhere on the website. Claim codes look like this: grntb107

Each Thumbuddy code can only be redeemed a limited number of times or can expire at a certain date.
