#551 Posted: 21:49:42 04/11/2013
So I keep getting "Invalid captcha" the first time, EVERY SINGLE TIME I enter even though it is correct. Then, it will refresh, give me the new one, and its fine. I still lose, but it happens every time on the first attempt. Anyone else having this problem?

I already had all of them. smilie Thank you GaiaOnline for making me need a different email for each account.

I've lost 6 times so far. I'm gonna wait to try the others later. Logically if this is only in US, there should be certain times that people aren't playing.

This promo is stupid. I hate it so much but want a Quickdraw so bad.

Okay. I had to post because this is the most ridiculous instant win game Frito Lay has ever done. Just ONCE.... I say ONCE. What times have people been winning at? What I can't figure out is how the computer chosen time has changed for this game. Fright rider was easy because it was just the first person to enter a code at each interval. This one seems odd. Almost as bad of odds as the PS4 instant win game that I can't stop myself from losing over and over again!

LOL at least with the ps4 one you know 100% that if you don't win you can just buy 1 later...

at this point I would love to just give them $30 and use the time I spend on this promo to live my life.

There is no way FR was the first person at each interval. Everyone who entered the first however long, all won.

What I meant was the first person to enter a code during each 15min interval won. It didn't seem to be a "computer chosen time" like it is this time. So I entered a code at 4:30am and won. Same night, my brother entered his code at 4:45am and won. done.

You are the reason we can't have nice things. I can't believe that you think this is acceptable. As the holiday approaches take some time to consider that theft, lying, manipulation and greed (all to get a toy) are not worth the cost to your self and to the rest of the fans that aren't so mercenary and sociopathic.



Could I point out that several people whom have called customer service were told by the reps that they can enter using as many email accounts as they have everyday? They've been telling everybody this, and that everybody in your house can win on the same day, but the max household limit is still 4. The reps basically opened the contest up to be a free-for-all after all of the complaints and fails. I don't think anyone should judge in this horrible contest situation. Especially since the rules state once per email address as well, and the reps are confirming it. It's not like they're taking anything away from other potential winners. They can still only win a max of 4 total for the whole contest.

Yes. The promo is a mess. That said, they have literally lied and stolen to try to win a toy. That was before the promo opened to reuse codes. A bad promo doesn't justify that. If that person is 11 years old, it might be excusable, but I'm pretty sure that they're old enough to know better. Just because this is the internet doesn't mean that we should all embrace this and nod our heads.

How have they lied and stolen? The promo also opened the codes almost 24 hours ago, so there wasn't all that much time where they had any advantage, and obviously they haven't won either. For example, I called customer service on Sunday afternoon to let them know my codes didn't work on my chips and before I finished my sentence the guy put me on hold, and before he came back I had an email with a dozen unique codes in my inbox. He didn't say much. I think they were overwhelmed and just trying to get codes to people as fast as possible. If they got their codes in a similar manner, which I believe is what happened with almost everybody in this mess, it's not lying or stealing. It's a bad promotion trying to re-open the contest as fast as possible, with overwhelmed reps whom probably wish they'd been home sick that day and didn't want to even hear the stories of the callers anymore at that point.

If you read earlier in the thread, Darkrai was stealing codes out of the general code pool, before Frito Lay changed the program. Darkrai also lied about it. Compound that with Darkrai's greed and manipulation of the system, and violating the official terms of the contest. When you add all this together, you end up with terrible behavior; Hence me calling them out on it.

I'd just leave everything to karma and stay out of it. It's none of my business and I don't really know what they've done/didn't do. Karma always seems to come around in its own way. smilie I've seen it many times around me. Like how jerks keep parking in the designated handicap space in my building because they think it's private residential property so "no big deal" and I have to watch the woman who needs it hobbling around but she doesn't complain. Then I come out the next morning and there's a big fat ticket on their windshield. Made my day. LOL! Or how I have to put up with listening to cheaters brag in my college courses, but then get a big smile when they end up on the bottom of the class anyways. With patience I'm sure I'll win my figure at some point, so who cares what they do.

You gotta chill out and stop taking your frustration out on other forum members and accusing them of things! Face reality and accept that ALL instant win contests are like this with hundreds to thousands of people trying to win with multiple email addresses daily. I can bet than over 99% of entries in this contest will NOT be tied to an accompanying chip purchase or a single mail away for a code, so you have no grounds for accusations on lying and stealing. Face it...the internet isn't always fair. Go and read that "Frustrating Amazon sale" thread for another dose of reality about how things work online.

With regards to stealing, this is a "no purchase necessary" contest and it states in the rules that making a purchase does not increase your odds of winning.

Honestly, if anyone deserves people's frustration over this poorly designed promotion, it would be FritoLay. If I was inclined to express my frustration somewhere, that is probably where I would start.

It won't matter, since they don't actually use it to e-mail you. As long as you entered your mailing address correctly, you'll get your figure. Likely the e-mail address, birth date information, etc, are used for marketing purposes.

I have no clue how people are winning this thing so easily. I must have played dozens of times after they opened up the codes and still nothing... not even at 4am on a tuesday! I give up. It seems like this time the computer really is generating random win times instead of the first person to enter a code in each 15min period like with fright rider.
BahamutBreaker Yellow Sparx Gems: 1191
#593 Posted: 12:39:10 05/11/2013
If you look at the contest particulars, this contest has a computer-generated random time of day selected within each 15-minute window. The first person to enter a valid code AFTER that randomly-selected time is the winner for that 15-minute window.
So, yes, if you believe you're increasing your chances for winning by entering your code exactly at 15, 30, or 45 minutes past the hour, you're incorrect.

So I re-tried the code I won with yesterday, and it said "Sorry you didn't win this time"....shouldn't it have given the code already used error!? I'm guessing Frito Lay reset all the codes, otherwise it woulda said used.


I received a new code for the one that I bought way back on 10/13, and won yesterday sometime after 4AM EST (I am an earlybird). First try! Kinda makes up for winning PFR on the 8th or 9th try (can't rem exactly which try won).

three different codes, but I guess I could have tries the same one from the sounds of it

I've been trying this from multiple email addresses and still no luck.

Hopefully those of us that win will back off for a while and let everyone have a chance to get one of these.

The good news is... there should only be around 200 figures given out so far, right? So those of us who are still loosing have a lot more days to try.

^yes they are giving away over 5000 of them

Kinda off topic but who else is hoping that they don't so this kind of promo with jade fire kraken, or springtime triggs, or any of the other unreleased variants.

I agree. Enough with the Frito-Lay promotions. If they're going to do this a lot, I'd prefer to see Activision hook-up with a food company that produces something healthier than chips/crisps. When I buy these bags for these promotions, I usually just end up donating the chips to shelters, and I almost feel badly about it, because I know the food isn't very nutritious at all. I guess it could be worse (like candy, or soda/pop), but still, thumbs down to a prominent game publisher promoting bad stereotypes and bad living habits by teaming up with potato chips.

Anytime, to be honest. One could make the argument that the wee hours of the morning (midnight until 2 AM Pacific?) might yield slightly better odds. I think people need to get some perspective though ... there's no need to panic about getting "shut out" of this promotion, as long as you're trying a couple times per week. There are over 5,000 of these Rattle Shakes that will be awarded in this contest. Since one is awarded per 15 minutes, that's 96 per day ... meaning you have at least 50 days worth of attempts still remaining.
If you're a die-hard strategist but don't want to wake up at 1:00 AM to enter a stupid code into a website, you might consider entering your codes during a time when USA-based internet traffic tends to be less, such as weekday mid-mornings (8:00 - 9:00 AM Pacific), or Friday evenings (6:00 - 8:00 PM Pacific). Picking a "good time" to enter a code guarantees nothing, though. There's still a random element of luck that you can not control.
