From YPPedia

Yeti Box Promotion

During the Yeti Box Promotion, players will receive a "mystery box" gift with purchases of $9.99 or more made between 3:00 PM PST December 23rd, 2013 and 3:00 PM PST January 3rd, 2014. This promotion is open to players using whichever payment method they prefer (including credit card, Paypal, and PayByCash, and checks and money orders). Purchases of either doubloons or subscription during the promotion period are eligible. You can be certain that your purchase qualifies if an image of a Yeti Box shows up next to your chosen package on the subscription or doubloon billing page when you go to make your purchase.

Your mystery gift will be redeemable on any one pirate associated with your account. If you made your qualifying purchase while logged in to the game, you may need to log out and back on again for it to appear. Available mystery gift items include...

  • Yeti Pets
  • Ice Blue Chromas
  • Yeti Dolls
  • Holiday Favors
  • Winter Trinkets

About Yeti Pets

Yetis are a new type of pet available in a variety of color combinations. Yeti pets that are won in the Yeti Box will have their skin and fur colors randomly selected from the following lists of possibilities:

  • Yeti Skin Colors: White, Pale Silver, Silver, Cream, Grey, Light Blue, Blue, Peach, Rose, Pink
  • Yeti Fur Colors: White, Pale Silver, Silver, Cream, Grey, Light Blue

About Ice Blue

Ice Blue is a special seasonal item color that will not be available for general sale from in-game shoppes. It is available in this promotion as the color of all the trinket prizes.

About Chromas

Chromas are items that are carried in the Miscellaneous section of your Booty panel. They can be used to permanently change the primary or secondary color of any existing piece of clothing, except the Savvy Hat and any clothing item that lacks color options.

About Holiday Favors

A "Holiday Favor" gift is a one-time use Miscellaneous, in-game item that will grant your pirate Pieces of Eight when opened (similar to a Piggy bank). Most Holiday Favors will contain between 400 and 4000 Pieces of Eight each, with a small chance of a payout of 100,000 Pieces of Eight.
