Wow. That is frustrating. Oh! If anyone got a Family Dollar around, I found bags there. Wasn't even looking for them. I'm sticking to my one bag and freeby code... I wonder how many times ive typed that dumb code!

I think that it is abundantly clear with this promotion and with the Fright Rider promotion (speaking only regarding these two as they are the ones that I have experience with mailing postcards in for free codes) that Frito-Lay does everything that they can to stall the process. Perhaps it is their way of giving the "paying" customers a better chance at getting the figures. I can't say that I don't blame Frito for doing this but at the same time it is kinda deceitful. Sure it doesn't say in the terms and conditions of the promotion when you will get your codes if you mail in for free ones, at the same time I don't think that people who mailed in for codes should be expected to wait until a few days before the promotion end date to get them either.

Wouldn't that be illegal of them, considering the terms state that a purchase will not garuntee you better odds at winning (or something along those lines)? Sure you can say that everyone may have the same odds no matter how many play at one time, but I'd figure the more people playing the lower the odds of winning if they wait to the last days to pass out all those codes.

Not really illegal, but they CAN make you jump through more hoops to get free emtries. Mail in a card on this exact size index card and wait for it to come back. Publishers Clearing House has this down to a science, if you buy a magazine then BAM you are entered - if you don't, you have to use this stamp in this location and this other one in this spot facing this direction and mail it to this other address, and so on. If they send you the code late you still have the same chance as someone buying a bag - at that point in time. XXXX number of prizes, one win per fifteen minutes - all they have to do is make sure you can only participate in the last few sets of fifteen minutes.

Now, realistically, I doubt they are doing that, it simply isn't worth the effort, even people that don't buy the bags are taking part in their advertising, which is the whole point of the contest. What is more likely is they simply collect them and send them out all at once (or in batches) - you wouldn't do that one at a time, or have a guy sending them out as they came in. Gather them up, do the data entry at one time and send them in a batch.

I get what you are saying about this but it seems awful fishy to me that I mailed my postcard requests soon after the Fright Rider promotion started and I didn't actually get my codes emailed to me until a couple of days ago. I called a week and a half after I mailed for my codes and was given them over the phone. There have been many people on this forum that share the same experience. I think that people also have to understand though that this Rattle Shake promotion seems to be much more heavily distributed than the Fright Rider one. The Rattle Shake bags have been found throughout Walmart stores while it wasn't until recent that the Fright Rider bags have been found at National chains like TRU.

I am not sure if they necessarily printed more of the Quickdraw Rattle Shake bags than the Fright Rider bags. Maybe the Rattle Shake bags were just distributed more quickly around the country. I do agree that it seems that the Rattle Shake bags are more evenly distributed around the country. I only found the Fright Rider bags at Kroger and recently at Toys R Us. I never found any of them at Walmart or Target. In fact, my Kroger keeps getting more and more of the Fright Rider bags in. They have at least 50 still in stock and they were decently stocked throughout the entire promotion. If you didn't have a Kroger around or one of its affiliates, it was much more difficult to find success with the Fright Rider promotion, especially at the beginning of the promotion. It seems that the Quickdraw bags can be found pretty much everywhere around the country and at different chains. I guess we will learn if these bags are going to be readily available throughout the entire promotion or if they will run out part way through.

The only thing good that can come out of this crap with Frito-Lay recently is if Activision stops partnering with Frito-Lay.
Their contests are silly and annoying, and they really don't fit in with the franchise in my opinion.

I'd much rather see Activision partner with an entity that can actually conduct a contest/sweepstakes without screwing it up (how hard can it really be?), or just do away with partnerships with food companies.

Honestly, I'd much rather they have promotions like last year's Hothead one. Have a figure you can buy in stores, but you can also enter to win one. It accomplishes the purpose of being a promotion, but also doesn't have everyone scrambling poisoning the well trying to get otherwise un-gettable stuff.

I like this idea a lot. The way the did the Sidekicks promotion wasn't bad either although I remember always seen opened bags with cut off UPS codes during the original Sidekick promo. >.<

I have tried 9 times a day since this started and all hours of the day and nite. All I get is the dreaded sorry you are a loser try again tomorrow. Oh well I will keep playing until this ends. I won 4 Halloween Fright Rides though. I wish all of us non winners good luck I only want to win just one! Why could this be like side kicks prom here is five dollars just sell me the dang toy. I would have mailed in 2 upc codes and a MO for $5.00 to Frito Lays to do so. From what I have seen figure wise at my TRU I don't think we are going to have any shortages of finding Swap Force Figures they had dozens of all most each figure. Good luck all tried of my codes not doing a dang bit of good winner ever 15 minutes ok seems like loser ever 15 minutes for me.

Won't happen if it is handled like the Fright Rider promo. End date for Rattle Shake is 12/31 and they will probably all ship out around that time. Has anybody found it easier to win now that the contest has had time to die down a little?

Wishful thinking, I think. I'm happy SOMEONE was able to win. I struck out of that promotion. $40-$50 is reasonable I think---although some have gone as cheap as $35.

It may not be every winner but I've received them for my past 2 wins and others in this thread have as well. It is not necessary to receive the email if you're a winner but if they decide to send you one you'll want to make sure you're using a valid email address so you know to verify your win.

Did you win early on? I think that is one of the common links, most that got an email won in the first couple days before they sorted out the re-usable code. Also it might have something to do with your address, is it on a new street and not listed as valid on GoogleMaps/MapQuest? Is there something unusual, the win form only has one line for address, did you have to put in an apartment number/suite or something? Or is it a PO Box? There are lots of reasons they may need to verify short of someone not submitting an address.

I agree with you though, use a valid email, because they could always have a mess up and need to confirm it.

I won once early on and didn't receive a verification email. I also didn't receive any from the Fright Rider contest. I'm hoping that this is an added precaution by Frito-Lay since this contest is so easily exploited. We're of the same mindset on people needing to be mindful of their entries. smilie

I don't know why this is such an issue for people here. Here is the email. Do you still think I'm lying about having to verify my win and posting about it here in order to make sure that others are on the look out in case they need to do the same?

[User Posted Image]

And they're not going to extend the contest. The emails are being generated as the win is recorded. And what happens if someone doesn't respond? Check out section 7 of the contest rules.

Quote:
Unclaimed prizes will not be awarded.


No one here is trying to scare anyone but this unfounded skepticism needs to go away.

Edit: The bottom line here is that these emails are real. When you enter use a real email address and watch your email just in case you are flagged and need to verify your win.

They wont send emails because I guarantee half the winners used a fake email and they are not going to extend the contest until they find 3 thousand real ppl/emails. I won 4....2 with real emails and have not been sent a thing! I would really like to see a screen shot of this so called email!



I don't know why this is such an issue for people here. Here is the email. Do you still think I'm lying about having to verify my win and posting about it here in order to make sure that others are on the look out in case they need to do the same?

And they're not going to extend the contest. The emails are being generated as the win is recorded. And what happens if someone doesn't respond? Check out section 7 of the contest rules.

O Crap! Well this is unfortunate. Guess I might only get 2 of my 4!

I think it is perfectly justifiable to question the email as this has not been something done by them in the past (as far as I know). While I agree that in most cases people do tend to jump on the "pictures or it didn't happen" mindset when news and rumors come up. I think asking for more information on something that historically hasn't happened before from somebody who appears to be in the know shouldn't be viewed so negatively. Bottom line is I think many people on here appreciate the extra step you took to provide us more solid proof of this occurring, I know that I do.
