My first code I tried to redeem at 3:10, but then the damn "Text back YES to accept rule s" shit pops up and I had to accept. Oce all that was said and done, my entry was at 3:11 and was a no go. My 2nd one in going to try tonight at 11:00 on the nose to get on my wife's phone.

The mobile app or online ordering is really helpful in that you can easily make substitutions, like swapping hard taco for soft taco, or swapping those garbage cinnamon twists for chips and guac or chips and something else.

I redeemed my code at 3:40am CST and no go.

No go at 3:20am CST.

 

Are people logging in, presetting their code and wait for the clock to hit a certain time to hit enter?

Thats exactly what I am doing, using the browser and awaiting the exact 10 minute time.  I have had two losses, 1:20 AM EST and 7:50 AM EST . I may try that a few more days then go back to the random minutes.

There is, but that only starts halfway through the contest (just like last year).

Bought four boxes and lost all attempts this morning. Feeling very bummed out and probably won't play much more now that the odds are lower and lower each day.

My stomach lol,so I have given in to telling the cashier I literally just want the box no food. But I know for a fact now that you can enter via text and online within the same 24hr period. 4:00 am loss, 4:14 am loss, 7:00 am loss, 7:16 am loss . All Eastern time. 0/6 trying to decide at what point I just wait for a good deal over the holidays on a white xbox one x. I am filling out the survey every time I go though so maybe I'll win that lol.

they gave you the wrong box, the box with the code has an xbox one x on it. I've had trouble more so than other years with them go long the wrong box or putting the food in a bag.

Always get your box inside.  While you are there, glance in the trashcans.  If you see a box, eat your box there, then throw it out and WOOPS YOU FORGOT TO TEAR YOUR CODE OFF and grab the other box.

 

I've gotten 3 free codes using this entirely not too good for you strategy.

So I started reading that now the algorithm is completely random, but at the same time, there is still a gateway. Meaning that the first person to enter a code at the minute in question wins. So keep entering codes, but only at the minute change. A group of people on xbox one/taco bell reddit have started a spreadsheet and people have been giving their entry information.

Also, congrats man on the win! I'm so effing jealous! I want one of these systems so damn bad that I'm staying up at night trying to figure out how to win!

How do we know the times are seeded only at minute changes and not anywhere throughout the 60 second timespan of that minute?

We don't yet, but it sounds more logical to do it that way.

No one’s winning from this? Lots of CAGers have won in previous Taco Bell promos. Hmm maybe they made it harder this time around.

I tried today at around 12:40pm EST and didn't win. I'm just glad I managed to actually get a box with an active code on it LOL

So how long does it normally take to get codes from sending in postcards? I’ll be sending off a bunch tomorrow, but now I’m worried about the timeframe!

Lots of people on ResetEra are winning.

I'm a little bummed. I got sick for 2 weeks from eating and I don't feel like I made any progress on my information gathering for winning. I am going to have to throw in the towel on this one. I will be trying like a mad man with anyone that has a cell phone to try and win once the free entry comes out on Nov. 12.

 

I did break down and buy one yesterday. I found a great bundle deal and went ahead and pulled the trigger.

Well crap... Was wanting to get my codes before the free online code started up, but it’s not looking good if your case is anything to go by.
