Isn't this a really awesome way to get fired? Because I talked about my job once in my personal blog. And then I didn't have that job any more.

He's promoting a public contest. It's not like he's giving away the codes or saying Gamestop sucks.

EDIT

After messing around with it, my friend and I have determined that any random combo of numbers and letters will give you a message saying your code has been entered successfully and that you'll be contacted. Also, it does not accept duplicates as we both tried each others codes and it said they'd already been entered.

You'd think they would've just entered those 25 codes and made those the only valid combination of numbers and letters. Has me less optimistic that the code I entered is actually correct since as I said, it's very hard to read.

I actually went back but now the code is missing from the spot I found it. I don't know if they've updated the picture to remove found codes?

In the rules it says "There is a limit of a total of one (1) Eligible Entry per person."

Does that mean if you win a T-shirt now you can't win the bigger prizes later?

There are no bigger prizes.

Also, they note in the official rules that they will attempt to contact winners over the telephone. Yuck. Id prefer to not talk to them... just respond to an email

Had me a little worried there. I had my brother try putting in jibberish on his computer and it said he won. I had him retry the code I won with and it says it was already taken. GameStop's probably got quite a few people expecting free shirts.



EDIT: Ah, crap.

I just put in "BORT" and "QUE" as random codes I made up and it said I won. I tried them both again and it says they were taken. No clue if I actually won now.



EDIT 2:

Okay, let's try and figure this out. The word that I found, or think I found, isn't typed out like a few of the codes or obvious like others. It looks like it could be part of the landscape, but it spells out an actual word, all the letters are about the same size, and it isn't at any odd angle.

Anyone else find codes like that? Where's GameStopTom?

EDIT 3:

Well, Fuck me. I found the original image and of course with my luck, I managed to spot the one freaking tiny little natural formation that just happens to look like it spells out "SOFT". Figures.

Bet the guy that picked up Fixit off that orange water tower or whatever it is won't be getting a t-shirt either.

That's what I said. You can enter any random combo of numbers and letters and it will say you've won. You cant enter duplicates though as it will say congrats or whatever, but that the code's already been used. It's seriously like the most backwards setup for a contest like this that I've ever seen.

Why they didn't just update their database daily with the 25 codes that could be entered is beyond me. It not only would've been easier for them in that they don't have to wade through countless entries of bullshit codes, but it would've been easier for the contestants as well as we'd actually know if we'd legitimately won something or not.

Remember that announcement I promised? I was just cleared to make it, but let me answer some of your questions first...

Hey Tom how long does it take to receive the confirmation email?


If you haven't received a confirmation email, send an email to help@gamestop.com and we'll get it all straightened out.

In the rules it says "There is a limit of a total of one (1) Eligible Entry per person."

Does that mean if you win a T-shirt now you can't win the bigger prizes later?


The T-Shirt contest is seperate from our bigger prizes, so you can still enter for our bigger prizes.

Speaking of which, that brings me to a clever segue to our big announcement --

GameStop is bringing back Surprize Attack! Check out the exclusive announcement trailer on the Classified tab on GameStop’s Facebook page. This tab will be a source of advanced intel throughout the sweepstakes, including info about prizes before they’re officially released, so stay tuned.

Starting tomorrow, you can use your GameStop pre-order code to play.

(NOTE: Thursday September 30th is the last day to redeem your pre-order code for the exclusive flight Suit avatar, so if you haven’t already, better get on it!)

Yes, using the code you got when pre-ordering that you used to get the avatar.
