That's actually a rather interesting promotion. Quite involved that Noble Team process is. The prizes seem pretty nice too.

It's really too bad since I can't stand Mountain Dew OR Doritos, the worst junk food in the modern world. It's also too bad that the NPN requires you to send in a SASE, since it's hardly no-purchase when you have to use a stamp and wait a number of weeks for a single code.

Still can't find any of the specially-marked Mountain Dew bottles and I really can't stand Doritos. At. All. The Doritos 3D that they had years back were pretty good, why did they have to get rid of those!

I got an email today and a free code. So i have a code balance of 1. But when i try to assign 1 credit to one of the time slots, and hit assign codes, it doesnt do anything. What am i doing wrong?

Was reading up on the contest and over at another site they mention that the fountain cup codes are reusable. Wondering if we'll get the same participation we did with the subway thread? I can't seem to find the bottles/chips/cups with codes anywhere in my area yet though

Here's a heads up:

If you have Xbox Live, log onto the email you have it on, check your Xbox Live emails, and one of them will have one code you can use.

They don't send me emails even though I opted in. This is the one company I can't get spam from.

Just checked and it was in their weekly newsletter (which I never read). So now I have 1 code, thanks Pretzle :applause:

So this is really really screwed up, but the doritos code i used...was on the outside of the bag. You could totally hit up 7-11 with your cell phone camera.

I'm still waiting for my local stores to start getting product in with the codes on them. We have some of the single serve doritos bags with codes on them , but none of the full size bags , and no mountain dew at all. Still , once the codes are available it shouldn't be too hard for me to get codes , since dew is one of my favorite sodas and doritos are some of my favorite chips.

Rules Verification : It says one account per person , but what about per household? I've formed a (noble) team at work with some friends , but talked to my brothers about opening up a lone wolf account so that we have access to a slighter bigger pool of prizes. Would this be a problem?

I'm hoping to max out at 750 entries. I'm going Lone Wolf hunting down that 4GB Console to replace my old model.

Look out for my Halo Reach Beanie Hat giveaway guys ;D

Wow maybe I should have reconsidered that team option instead of going lone wolf.

By the way how many codes do you have?

Me, I am sitting on about 350.

Not really if you go to a few Wal-Marts and stand for hours with a notebook writing all the codes off the doritos bags.

I haven't been notified if I'm a winner yet. I'll be upset if I didn't win with those 750 points.
