Post card postage is less than a forever stamp. Last I checked they were 33 cents each, but they could have increased.

You can also mail in up to 33 times for codes. Postcards and postage will likely be less than the $5 boxes and will be easier on one's terlet.

 

I'm figuring it out now.  A book of 20 stamps is $9 and can get a pack of 25 postcards from amazon for $5 so thats about $15 for 20 entries.  Now my question would be can you send them all at once or do they have to arrive once a day.  And if you got all the codes at once do you go all in on one day or spread them out.

Mass-mailing postcards to Taco Bell to try and win a PS4... I think this is one of those things you need to describe to yourself out-loud for clarity.

 

Better than mass-buying taco bell to try and win a PS4. Yuck.

Oh dang I didn't know there was a different stamp for postcards! I just checked and you're correct they're at $0.33. Also I just got back from wallyworld and all they had were the 4.25 x 5.5 postcards. Can we alter the postcards to fit the correct dimensions? Or does anyone know where they sell the correct size?

I ended up going to Joanns and getting some cardstock on sale at 3 sheets for $.99. I figure if I'm going to take the time to hand address all of these I can spend five minutes cutting them out.

This contest is being run by a different sweepstakes house with more experience.  I wouldn't mess around much with this one.

This is a little embarrassing but how do I but this on one line; "Taco Bell and PlayStation Play The Future First Instant Win Game Code Request" ? I've never done anything like this and this will also be my first time sending a postcard anywhere lol. My hand writing is awful so I tend to write large letters. No way am I going to fit that on one line. D:

I'm curious how long the wait will be to get codes back for those mailing requests in. What if they don't start mailing them out for a few weeks? That's the main reason I'm holding off on buying any stamps.

For these post-cards you won't be able to use envelopes. In the rules regarding sending the post cards it has "Requests sent in an envelope will not be accepted." 

 

That being said, I'm not sure I'm entirely comfortable sending out post cards that have my personal information all over them. This is tempting though to give a shot for ~$10 or so for 20 codes..

Ah, sorry.  Didn't read that close.  Yeah, it's tempting.  I'll probably send in the max.

so has anyone found these 3" 1/2 by 5" post cards yet? And I looked up the dimensions for the $0.33 post card stamp rate " Maximum size: 6 inches long by 4-1/4 inches high by .016 inch thick".

Bought a box and didn't win, bought 13 postcards from USPS. They were 3 "1/2 X 5" 1/2. I hope they accept these.

I went to dollar tree no such luck they didn't have any.. Anyone else have any suggestions I'm assuming we will have to cut any down to size. Or use cardstock

Where does one even get 3.5" x 5" postcards?  Thats a weird size.  Surely they're not gonna be size nazis even though thats what they specified.

 

Edit: It turns out THANK YOU cards are often 3.5" x 5".  Dollar General may have them at 8 for $1.  I may do that if I dont turn up an attractive deal at office depot or walmart b&m.

 

Edit 2: DG cards are actually 4 x 5, but I can fix that.

Got two of those $5 boxes  for my wife and I. The food was tasteless and offered little resistance to being eaten. I haven't been to a taco bell in a long time and it's about as not bad or not good as i remember.

 

I used one code and didn't win.

 

Taco bell won, i guess.

Little resistance to being eaten is the hallmark of American fastfood.  It should be the god damned slogan.

I don't care what others do with their time, so I don't see the problem.
