Honestly, this wasn't on purpose. I was just screwing around with code.

The last one was invalid, so I figured that it was the last 3 digits (Which were horribly printed; 5 looked like 8, 9 looked like 7.).

Requesting the codes by mail may not be the answer ether. I received my codes in my email on Friday and just tried using one.

I had 6 "code has been used" before I the 7th code was accepted, but it was not a winner. So they are not only hacking the ones on the bags but also the ones we receive by email.

I wonder if they keep track of who they issue the codes to and can track a code to see who is stealing the codes?

Then you have the guy on eBay that at 9:00 this morning has 8 buy it now, 1 in an auction, and codes for sale to.

Humm...

this from the guy who cheated the system to win one



From the guy who is annoyed at wasting $15 for nothing. I don't even eat the chips.



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?


That is just how Matteomax rolls. I don't care how old a person on this forum is, if they are being ridiculous they need to be called out. I don't care whether they are a mod or not, if they are living by their own rules then it shouldn't be so shocking for people to be upset about it. If the maturity level and/or moral character of a mod comes into question, again regardless of age, then perhaps gnorcing a mod would be a solution? I for one am so happy Matteomax was able to get one of the figures this morning. Perhaps the ones of us that cry and complain the most are the same people that deserve whatever they want in life too? Interesting how things work out isn't it?

eonism....

#459 Posted: 20:38:25 03/11/2013
To Summarize:

The codes on the outsides of the bags are actually just "lot" codes. If you have a Fright Rider bag (or even a sidekicks bag) still floating around that has a sticker for the "Best By" date on it, check it out - it'll have a similar code). Plus, the codes are on the outsides of the bags, where any joe schmoe can write them down and use them.

The "Lot Codes" are in groups, based off of factory production. This is why you'll see a bunch of bags in the same area with the same code, but won't always see the same code in the same exact location.

Apparently, the contest is set up to only allow each code to be used once. Since multiple bags have the same code on them, this causes issues with folks trying to use their code (or, if they bought multiple bags at once, they may only have an individual code).

Individuals are supposed to only enter the contest ONCE per day - regardless of how many codes they have. This is easily circumvented, as the only way the site locks folks out is by e-mail address... and who doesn't have a few dozen throw-away e-mail addresses?

This is all doubly compounded by the fact that you don't even need a code. You can apparently call customer service with a code you've obtained off someone else's post. Also, you can apparently "tweak" a real code by changing a digit or two to grant you a bunch of codes. This is because the "lot" codes are printed on stickers in order.

Add into all this, anyone can pull up the screen that says "You're a winner!" by going straight to this address: http://www.fritolayholiday.com/winner
You can't enter your information to actually win, but, apparently, folks are doing this, taking screenshots (of this and the error message that follows), calling customer service, throwing a fit and getting customer service to take their information and telling them that they'll enter their info into the winner's database.

Does this pretty much sum everything up?

I am hoping that I will be able to win off of the replacement codes that i requested, and they said would be emailed to me. If I do win one I will happily give away the rest of the codes I receive to help someone else out. This is absolutely the worst start a promo has ever gotten, it has made for a very bitter (including myself) forum and topic. I hope this all works out and we are able to finish our collections as a big toy obsessed family again. Congrats to all who won today, no matter the method, and I hope to join your ranks soon

I bought more bags today... And how dare you accuse me of being greedy trying to win my 1, when some people are trying to win as many as they can. This is one of the biggest jerk posts I have read all day.

That was a real crap thing to say. Regardless of whether he bought the bags or not, people can mail in for "free" codes and can request as many of them as they want.

So in the span of three hours you went out and bought 9 more bags of chips? Unlikely. This thread has people openly admitting to stealing and advocating theft. It is far more likely that you're one of them, than you decided to run out and purchase 11 more bags of chips (when you initially bought only two), all in the span of a few hours from your last post. Yes. I can count.

If you would upload a link to ya photo of your receipt I'd be happy to apologize repeatedly and grovel for your forgiveness every day for a month. Until then, if you're stealing codes from the unused pool, please stop.

The codes are based off the website. No code is actually a winning code. I'll post when the website starts hitting winners. If anyone else wins please post when you do bc its strictly up to the website the code means nothing. I just talked to them on the phone.

#487 Posted: 23:53:11 03/11/2013
outta curiosity does anyone else notice the guys ask for the same info you enter in wto redeem a code? like youre phone number, name and zip code? maybe they use that to double check and make sure you arent jerking them around. i read through the rules earlier so maybe they attach those to make sure that the codes they give out are going to the people who called in and asked for them
im not accusing anyone im just stating maybe thats their mentality. that way their like this person has this code so if someone else tyoes it then we say its used or something. since the rules state that they arent to be traded and such

Not that I personally care, but... Let me get this straight - after how poorly the contest is running and all the people getting messages about codes having already been used, you rushed out today and bought over $70 worth of chips (and impressively managed to find 11 bags, all with unique codes)...

All while we haven't sniffed any of the bags here in Southeastern Michigan. Unfortunately, being a man of morals, I need to find the bags in order to input a code. I have never sent in for codes before. If someone wants to PM me with the most efficient way to ask for a lot of codes I would appreciate it. I am thinking it might take a lot of codes to win this one.

Are variants needed to complete the console version or only the 3DS version? What can Quickdraw access that the regular RS cannot? (I haven't played yet - I'm waiting for my PS4!)
