I'm sooooo confused by how this contest works. I can enter daily, but I need a new code each day, and it's one play per day per person?

So I went to Taco Bell since I don't punish my body enough and got the big box. Didn't get a PS4 box. I politely asked if they were doing the promotion and the cashier stared blankly at me. "What promotion?" I responded by saying "that one" and pinging the the 3'x4' banner 8 inches from his head. He said he didn't know anything about it but I shouldn't bother. It's a one in a million chance that I'd win anything anyway.

So... I'm heading to staples to buy postcards after work today and will get some stamps while I'm at it. Anyone else have an experience similar with their local T-Bell?

You should request a refund. I absolutely wouldn't pay for the food if they didn't give you the box.

Lol. Not only did he not know anything about it, but he specifically told you not to bother because you won't win? That's the whole point. Give people an almost nil chance to win something, sales triple, huge profit.

Went to a taco bell/kfc and asked if they had the ps4 boxes. The guy had no idea what I was talking about and just rang me up a $6 box. Didn't get the code and when I asked again afterwards the guy tells me they didn't get them yet.

 

Anyways I do know someone who won a ps4 the last time. Not sure how the mail in will work if they email you the codes, I would think it would take maybe a week to get it after mailing it in.

I think I will just try entering early morning, might have better chances then trying when people are actively eating and entering their codes at the same time.

I'm no Taco Bell snob, but the Big Box meal I bought tonight to get the code was vile. That Queserito thing was awful - I lasted two bites. If they offered a big box with a grilled stuffed steak soft taco and two normal tacos instead of that Doritos loco crap, I'd go back - instead I'll stick to the postcard method. Even worse, despite the huge stack of the specially marked boxes with the code on them just sitting there, they gave me my meal in a normal box. I had to convince them to just hand me a box with the code on it.

At a few local taco bells during the last time they did this promotion, some of the employees would steal them to use and/or sell online, and we had to go out of the way to get codes.  Took forever to get a straight answer as to what was going on.

I did a lot of mail in codes last year. They took forever to get back. It seemed to be that way for a lot of people too. So don't bother sending if it's like 2 weeks before the online AMOE (do send now though).

You can customize your box. It's really easy to do on the app. I made my queserito steak with no chipotle sauce and my taco soft and my doritos loco a spicy one.

If they would of won with the stolen codes, wouldn't they need to show proof with a receipt that they actually won? So dumb.

Wait...we're supposed to keep te receipt?

Anyways last time I bought one of these boxes they just handed meI food on a tray. They said they don't hand out the boxes if it's for here so I had to ask for it separately and the dude looked at the lady behind him who gave him a nod so he reluctantly handed me one. It seems like the employees are really stingy about giving away boxes.

No, you don't need a receipt to claim, but I would keep the code off the box if you use one just in case (even though it's really not necessary either). You can mail in for codes, so they wouldn't expect every win to have a receipt anyway.

That is fucking awful. I am about to go get some Taco Bell since I am between classes and I am for sure going to get the PS4 box if I buy one.

Well I would keep the receipt in case if it was ever questioned.

I got a box and it will probably be my last one. I am still hungry after finishing the box and the food was meh. I'll probably wait for the free online codes later since I am not really a fast food person.

Once the online code hits, your chances of winning go down 1000000% since everyone and their mothers will be entering that code.

Probably a dumb question, but can you use the same code once a day or do you have to keep buying the boxes for more codes?

Guys, last year when they had this going on I went and bought some post card stamps from the post office. They were 34 cents each. I have some left over that I was going to use but I just found out the price went up to 35 cents now. Does that mean I can't use these stamps anymore?

That means you'll need to buy 1 cent stamps to go along with your 34 cent stamps, unless they were forever stamps.

Won this morning :)

Went to Taco Bell last night 5 till 11 and the employees acted like they didn't know what I was talking about, but never turned me away either. I showed them the contest on my phone and they had to talk to their manager. They said it didn't start until Midnight and I explained that was Midnight Eastern, so I got my box last night.

My wife gets up at 5 on Tuesdays and Thursdays for running club, so I had her enter it and we won!

Sorry for the boring story, but I'm happy this worked since I did the exact same thing last year and it didn't work. I did end up winning a ps4 from Taco Bell last year later in the contest when I randomly woke up at 5 on a Saturday.

Now I need to figure out what to do with a second ps4. I probably have 3 friends and a niece and nephew who'd want one. Thinking of seeing if anybody wants to buy it for $200.


Congrats, my fellow CAG! Any chance you could tell us what time you entered your code? :)
