New Frito-Lay Promo! [CLOSED]

#201 Posted: 12:50:04 25/10/2013
I went back the other day to check on the code that I got before. Checked through 3 boxes of the bags. All codes the same. Nothing is preventing a person from buying a single bag and using the same code each day. There is nothing preventing someone from going to the store, writing the code down and entering without a purchase. Given the unknowns surrounding this contest at this point I decided to send out a bunch of post cards as well. Don't know if that will better my chances but it isn't expensive to do and considering how the distribution problems we had with the Fright Rider bags I wanted to do whatever I could in hopes of winning. Who knows? Maybe I will get the same code for every post card I sent in?

One thing that might work in the favor of us DarkSpyro fans is the fact that these bags have been put out early in some places.

Many casual fans might buy and eat the chips before Nov 3 and forget about all of this by the time the contest starts!

I'm putting it together now.

Since people are finding only one code out there, the first person to use it wins the figure, and if others use the same code, they loose. There's probably no "used" codes mentioned on the website.

Lets hope thats not it Matteomax....that would mean that only 50 to 100....maybe a little more, for all of the US? smilie Yikes!
Im thinking the.... "one prize awarded for every 15 minutes" ...is each code only works every 15 minutes. Once its won...will have to wait 15 minutes before it will win again.

On the bag it says "limit one play per game code. "
So I don't understand how the same code could be on all bags.

Im thinking they forgot to rewright that part...because the paragraph looks just like the other one on the older bags(Fright Rider, Sidekicks...ect.). I think they copyed and pasted a bit to much...lol...or we can hope they did.

By the way...i found some bags in my local Krogers today. And yes the codes where all the same....and yes they are different from the one TheGooch posted.

Well for those who are noticing the asterik after the word "exculsive" and seeing the date, I noticed on my Fright Rider bag that it also has the same thing where the word "exclusive" is. That one says it's exclusive until 11/16. May not mean these things will see retail sale, just that they are exclusive until the contest ends and then they don't have any to give. Hoping I'm wrong though, but that's the way I'm seeing it.

I have a feeling this is one per area. There are over 17,000 towns in the US, and some have no common stores (Walmart, Target, supermarkets, etc), so one or two winners per town = over 5,000.

I'm not sure that this is correct, though. If they pulled this off, this is a very cheap move.

The bags finally hit the Watertown, NY WalMart. Got Three bags (there was four left when I had a chance to grab them from the shelf). Two bags have a matching code, but the third has a different one.

Didn't know the codes were duped so heavily...probably a good idea on Frito-Lay's part as many people won't even try the codes (possibly a majority).

I've also noticed the site for redeeming these codes went down as of recent (couple days now according to post on Frito-Lay's facebook wall)...A real bummer indeed.

Where are you guys finding the codes on the bags? I checked all over several bags at my local Walmart today and didn't find a code. Is it the string of numbers/letters to the right of the stamped date on the bag? If so, half the digits were blurred and misaligned on the bags. There was no sticker with a code as others have pointed out.

I highly doubt this winners per town theory. Collectors widely vary per area and they would never distribute winnings like that. There are plenty of Walmarts and Targets across the country in areas which probably have little to no collector base. Heck...while on vacation this past summer, I stopped by a Walmart in Ketchikan, Alaska where it seemed many of the Skylanders on the pegs hadn't been touched in a while and they still had plenty of the glow in the dark figures which haven't been seen on pegs in my area (central NJ) in a long time. If it was region-based winning, by all means I'd be trying to get a bag/code from Alaska.

Upper left corner of the bag if you are looking at it. There is a picture on the back of the bag showing you where to look.

^It verys location from bag to bag. Some are in the upper left corner, some are in a white box, some are on a sticker. Mine is in the middle...just above the snakes head, right under the "Use By: DEC 17" date. Its 11 digits, mines 2nd an 3rd are letters.

Found two bags but neither one had a code. I guess someone peeled the stickers off. Of course, I only realized it AFTER I had already bought them. UGH. Such a poorly conceived promotion this time around.

Just got off the phone with customer service to complain about there not being a code and I was told that the code that needs to be used is the "manufacturer's code" which is printed after the expiration date. It's an 11 digit code but I can't confirm that this is true since the website isn't up yet. Both codes are different on my bags by 1 digit but likely because they're from the same lot. Guess I'll try after the 3rd.

Can I ask all of you a question? I hope I am not coming off condescending because I am truly not trying to be.....but why are some of you still trying to actively search for the bags of chips with for this promotion? All the codes are printed on the outside of the bags so there is no need for you to purchase any of them. Your odds of winning aren't enhanced if you do make a purchase. We have all the information we need to send in free code requests directly to Frito-Lay. The only work that really needs to be done here is to fill out some index cards, send away for the codes and then probably call customer service at or around the time the promotion is live to get your codes (since email hasn't been a very reliable means of obtaining them at this point). Post cards even work, I know this because that is what I used for the Fright Rider promo. I bought 15 postage paid post cards for something like $5.50, I filled them out and sent them away. That costs less that one bag of chips, most likely saves money on gas and we are all healthier because of it. I guess I understand it from a collectors point of view if someone wants to keep an empty sack but I just don't get why anyone else is interested in searching out the bags.

I can't answer for anyone else but for me I was already at the grocery store this morning before work. I checked to see if the bags were there (like I do anytime I'm at the store) and there happened to be 2. We use the chips for lunches/snacks for my girls so it's something we typically buy anyway so spending $6 a bag isn't really that big of a deal. *shrugs*

I actually already have 3x5 cards filled out as well and will be mailing them off today to get some additional codes to give away.

According to the description on the back of the bag, you only need to enter the code. If something else was required, they would have listed it, I would think.

Well done, portalflip, well done. However, the shades go on BEFORE the pun.

I think I'm going to see how this one sorts out a bit even if I do find the bags. When the system comes up, a TON of people will be entering codes right away, particularly since I'm good on chips for a bit. It sounds like the codes are very inconsistent in how they are being distributed. They definitely have some weirdness happening.

I was at my local Walmart and Wegmans today and saw 10-15 Quickdraw bags at each store. (I'm sure they were Quickdraw bags)
Oddly NONE had a single sticker on them. Did a scalper hit my area or are they not being put on bags anymore?
All bags still had the info on them that tells you to check the corner of the outside of the bag for the code.

I bought my bag about 2 weeks ago and luckily it still had a sticker on it because I didn't know to check for it until I got home and read the instructions on the bag.
Since then I have thrown my bag out, its not going to ask me like for a bar-code now is it? because if so I'm screwed.

Attention Frito-Lay shoppers: If you aren't finding the codes on a white printed box on the outside of the bag look around for the black print on the bag that shows the use by date. After the date (mine says USE BY Dec 17) there will be an 11 digit alpha numeric code directly after. That my friends is your missing code. I noticed that all the bags of chips I found tonight had the same code but different from the one I posted on here that I found earlier this month. Be careful if you plan on actually purchasing the bags, some of the printed codes where highly smudged to the point where you couldn't even decipher the last 4 or 5 digits of the code. A friendly warning to my fellow Portal Masters, grab your sacks with caution!
