DEAD: Free Google Play $5 Credit with Kit Kat Purchase (slight YMMV)
Deal DetailsLast Edited by ShengD October 12, 2013 at 10:57 PM
Many of you may know that Google and Hershey's are running a promotion involving specially-marked Android KitKat bars (see attached image). By redeeming the code inside, prizes include $5 Google Play store credits, Nexus tablets, and more.
But what you probably don't know is that you WILL win a $5 Google Play credit on your first redemption! While these Android KitKat bars are still somewhat difficult to find, I know 6 people including myself and my spouse who found them, and we each won a $5 Google Play credit on our first redemption. Needless to say, this is not random. A few of us have also won additional $5 Google Play credits, but after several more attempts.
So if you happen upon an Android KitKat at your local market, make sure to pick up one ($0.69 at my local Target) and redeem for the $5 credit. You will likely be able to do this for additional Google accounts, if you have any. Good luck!
Update: Link to Redemption Page
Update 2: Some users are reporting winning the 2nd prize (a bag of KitKat minis) instead of the $5 credit.
Winning promotional credit will be redeemable for 30 days after the offer ends.
Promotional credits will be valid to spend on Google Play for 12 months after the date of redemption.
It's DEAD DEAD as of 10:30AM 10/11/13; Don't waste your time trying to hunt down the kitkat and trying over and over again just to win a couple dollars on Google Play. The odds of winning were less then 20% If you really want to try your luck at winning a tablet, your better off playing some slots lol xD

Quote :whats your technique for doing them all in a row... I can decide if I want to just do a few per day or knock them all out in a row...
I did them in three different sittings but as many as 20 in a row. Every code must have a new account created. Email must be different every time so lets say your email is firstname.lastname@example.org you can add a +01 making it email@example.com all the way to firstname.lastname@example.org all emails will come to your gmail account. Every code you have to register a new account. The address needs to be different every time. I just made them up. The zip codes need to different every time as well made them up too but make sure they have the right first 2 digits for the area. Last phone numbers need to be different. After you get the winner announcement you can click on a edit button in the top left and then enter a real address if you win a tablet.
So I open up a Google incognito window and then after it says winner I collect my credit and then use the log out button at the top left which then takes me back to the landing page and rinse and repeat. No need for new windows different browsers or changing ip's as some have said just make sure you create a new account each time randomizing the things i said above. I would get them entered sooner rather than later. I would image soon the codes will be used up or someone will catch on to what we are doing Wink

Looks like they did try to use my original (completely random/crazy) contact information. I received this email asking for corrected information, and now expect that I will end up getting the Nexus 7 2013

It took them almost a month, but I got a notification from UPS My Choice that I have an incoming package from:
NORWOOD YOUNG AMERICA, MN, US
With a Departure Scan from Glencoe, MN, United States 12/12/2013
I did not receive any sort of email notification that the Nexus was on it's way. Glad it's finally getting here, just in time for it to be a Christmas gift
It's worth noting that I was able to redirect the shipment to my work address using UPS My Choice. That way no chance of a missed delivery.
