Mailed my postcards 3 weeks ago and nothing. No response from support either. Argh this is so frustrating. Bunch of free codes would have been nice!


Same here! Still no emails, and customer support can't really help in the matter.

So I took it upon myself to realize the dream I had about winning the PS4 last night.

 

I went to Taco Bell. Asked them if they had the boxes in stock before ordering a thing. They said yes so I bought 4 boxes. When I get to the window they tell me "there is a little problem". Immediately I knew how this was going because well.. let's just say this is how my life usually works haha.

 

So the girl tells me they won't have any boxes in until next week and that I could come back and buy one then. I told her that "that's why I had asked you before hand if you had them in stock". She told me I could talk to the manager and so I did. He took down my information and said that he would call me when they get more boxes in stock and that he would hold 4 off to the side for me. They all seemed really nice about the situation and I was being completely calm about everything. So hopefully it wasn't a front and they aren't hording codes for themselves while doing heroin in the kitchen and oppressing a small village for their religious beliefs.

You do realize that starting on the 29th, free codes will be available to those without a purchase via an online request?  That may significantly reduce your chances (even more than they are with a nationwide contest).

yea I know. But I figured I'd give it a try or four before the free code goes live. The manager had told me that he was getting more boxes tonight. This was however after the drive thru girl told me next week. But I would hope that the manager knows more than the girl...

I just won at 6:09 AM EDT.

 

My Strategy was that I picked 6:09 AM to use everyday starting yesterday. I figured it would increase my chances by picking a static time. I sent code via text right after my phone switched over to 6:09 AM. This was my 6th try but 2nd using said strategy.

Free code starts October 29?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Well I'd buy a code or two if anyone's selling any before the 29th. I love Taco Bell but I can't really justify spending $6 there.

Man, if I don't get the codes from Postcards I'm going to really figure out a code time to redeem the one code you receive online.

I sent out a handful of a card a few weeks ago and it took two weeks for me to get codes e-mailed to me. BE SURE YOU LIST YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS ON THE CARDS. I didn't do that for like, way too many of them.
