I am calling Frito-Lay right now hoping I get two codes due to my two codes are already used. The Wait Music is HORRID! So Loud and distorted!



Heh, I agree. I sat on there for about 10 minutes..

This is a long contest... when everyone gets their replacement codes it may make sense to give it a week or so for the initial rush to die down, as there seem to be way more losers than winners right now.

Just got off the phone with a rep, she told me that there has been "major" problems with this promotion already. Gave me two replacement codes for the ones that had shown up "already used". I bet all the workers there in the call center are going to wish they called into work sick today. What a nightmare!

In the experience with the Fright Rider promotion, the longer we waited, the more people were entering. I am guessing that we are experiencing more people are ready to enter the code. The more we wait, the harder it will be!

Oh, and I did receive replacement codes and the first one was a winner!

All 6 codes from the bags I purchased were already used. I have chips galore in my house but can't even play the game yet. Rather disappointing.
Thus the odds that the code you find on a bag in a store is still useable = very slim.

I joked with the guy about this. You could tell that he was already fed up. At least I got him to laugh a bit. He did seem as though he wanted me to just keep asking questions since I was in such a good mood!

With Fright Rider the bags finally started showing up at TRU closer to the end, plus everyone finally started getting their codes that they had mailed away for, making it harder to win towards the end. Here everyone and their mom already has a batch of codes and is trying to enter them, so after a lot of people burn through those, it might be easier. just my .02

I definitely think holding off for a few days before trying again is a good idea. People really jumped on this as soon as it went live this morning. Many people are calling the service number right now based on the longer hold times (and probably due to a smaller staff on Sundays). I had no problem getting replacement codes for the ones that came up already used. I think in these harsh times Master Eon would want us to show patience. So before calling and unloading on the CSR who is only trying to do their job I ask that you think to yourself "W.W.E.D." (What Would Eon Do)?

How can you say this? After all the horrible things that Koas and his minions have done over the years, Eon has always kept his sense of levity and empathy. He is a shining example for all of us to look upon inside and outside of our portal master lives.

Im definately going the 3x5 route, buying the chips is a waste of money for a game you may or may not win. And now seeing they were dumb enough to put the codes on the outside of the bag where anyone can steal the code I dont see why anyone would buy the chips.

Reading a ton of complains which are justified, but as anyone other than Matteomax and myself won? I just read the rules, and each household can win 4 maximum. However, you need to allow 24hrs between wins.

I was able to use one of the new codes and won. I had to trade them for new ones that I received in a call.

Even after trying previously in the same day? Did you use different validation info to proceed?

Even worse than Flocked Stump Smash. I remember someone posting that they received 12 of him.

Actually, I'd say that Stump Smash was the best, and the Spyro's Adventure Sidekicks were the worst.

This glow rattle is the worst. For so many reasons

All my replacements lost in separate 15 minute increments.

Frito-Lay, just give GameStop the rest and be done with it. This is the worst promotion ever.

"Hey, let's give away a variant that is required for 100% completion in game!"
"How many, George?"
"Well, uh...a little over 5,000 should cover the fanbase!"

yet you blasted everyone else for wanting to share codes and help each other out. Little bit of the pot calling the kettle black, or is it only cheating if it does not serve your purposes?

If they really wanted to do a promo, they could have EASILY done something as simple as "send in 4 UPC codes" or something, just like the Sidekicks promo required you to do. That way, they don't have to worry about connection problems or any errors on their side as its only one item, and only one thing to verify.
