Philadelphians Get a Chance to Double Up and Earn with City-wide Scavenger Hunt
KDDI Japan customers will use VoLTE service while traveling in the United States

Beginning at noon today, Center City Philadelphia will become the scavenger hunting grounds for those looking to earn a little cold hard cash and learn about Verizon's Double Up & Save promotion

Those in the area with savvy enough Center City scavenging skills will earn themselves $20 from a Verizon street team! That's if they can locate them.

We're not only hooking up those who track down the cash - A $2,500 Double Up & Save donation will be made to the Urban League of Philadelphia. The donation amount is equal to the number of $20 prizes being awarded to scavenger hunt participants.

You can get a jump start on the day's Double Up & Save Scavenger hunt by checking out the hints we've dropped below. Additionally, 95.7 Ben FM’s Marilyn Russell will be helping hunters by tweeting on location.
