Still missing one token. Shame that the stuff I bought back in November resulted in nothing but duplicate entries.
In my experience, This Baddig/Old Wisconsin Sweepstakes is one of the shadier contests running. Most contests are straightforward and not complicated because not everyone can read the thousand words of fine print
First, you find out you need ten tokens to get one single entry to 50K contest. Alright, but as you read further you need 5 tokens you buy from the store. Sure, you can get random (store bought) tokens for free by sending in a request by envelope, and you must also include a self-addressed stamped envelope to send back. Of course you need to send in AT LEAST 5 to still get a free entry. One entry to a lottery drawing!!!
So, like any idiot I run to the store to find the product they have listed on the website that is supposed to have the Token Pieces.
Here is the list of product that is supposed to carry the codes: Buddig Original
2 oz Pouch; 16 oz Pouch; 7 oz Tub; 9 oz Tub; Large-size Variety Pack
4 oz Pouch; 12 oz Pouch; 1 lb Tub
4 oz Snack Bites; 6 oz Snack Bites; 8 oz Snack Bites; 6 oz Snack Slices; 6 oz Snack Sticks; 8 oz Snack Sticks; 9 oz Summer Sausage
Now I see the store nearest me has a TON of 2 oz pouches of Buddig product, but ZERO contest stickers. The only stickers are on the most expensive product in the store, the 9 oz tub. So, what the hell, I waste money on 5 products figure will give it a whirl since I am in the store anyway (even though I am feeling cheated since stickers were not on the product listed on their own website). At least I like turkey sandwiches.
When I get home I discover a finer point of the contest, that buying 5 products doesn't mean anything. The tokens on even the bought products is randomly distributed. One of my tokens is duplicated. Now that is irritating.
So continuing my idiot ways, I run down to the store to buy two more of the 9 oz tubs and figure I should at least get my (1) measly 50K entry. Nope, duplicates again.
Then of course it hits me, these guys are preying on those who will run to the store and buy product to get into the contest, yet after buying more and more many people never get in. A great marketing bonanza, as I am sure they have had sales pick up swiftly just due to this promotion. Likely much more than the 50K they are shelling out, and the additional $61K in Instant Prizes.
One thing you are sure to win, one of their worthless Store Coupons that are buy 4 get one free, buy 3 get one free, buy 2 get one free.
I bought other peoples deli products prior to this contest, and learned of Buddig from the sweepstakes, but you can be sure I will never buy another of their products again. Good Job marketing idiots at Buddig....
