I sent for codes as soon as I saw this posted and I still haven't received anything back.
Me neither. Frown

I buy their products all the time but right now I'm on a diet so I don't want to bunch of chips sitting around.

If they give out a prize every hour, but it's also instant win, does that mean we would be better off submitting codes at the beginning of the hour? By 1:59, the odds of someone already having won that hour timeslot is far greater, so you're probably wasting a code and would be better off trying at 2:01.

Similarly, wouldn't I be better off submitting the code at 4am (or some other less-busy hour) so I have less competition?

Or am I not seeing something here?

I believe its whoever plays at the randomly selected winning time or who plays first after the selected time has passed.

So if the winning time was 9:47 and you played at 9:46 you wouldn't win,but say no one played at 9:47 and then you were the next one to play at 9:48 then you would win.

Also I do think if you played at a later time where not many people would be playing you would have a better chance of winning,but you gotta remember time zones. It might be 4 am where you live but on the other side of the country its only midnight.

Years ago i won the original Wii from the same type of game only it was through Wendy's.Could play 5 times a day for free and i played for a few days before finally winning.

The win times should be completely random, so play 1:59 should be no different than 2:01. As mentioned above, playing in the wee hours is always going to be your best bet. That said, I personally shy away from right before or right after the hour. Just seems like somebody would have already won by 1:59, or the time hasn't went active at 2:01. But by definition it is all purely random and theoretically equal.

And I think initially there was a very low buzz around this contest. There's little to no advertising and it's not like everybody buys those variety packs to see this is going on. I couldn't even find this thread a couple weeks ago. I won on my 2nd try at like 830AM EST probably 10 days ago. Only reason I had codes was we bought snacks for a couple t ball games and noticed the promo.

Buying a 3rd will get you 3 entries and all the subsequent ones after that. Good luck.

I received a couple as well. Do you think they need to be hand written? I printed the first batch because my hand writing isn't good.

I don't see where it lists the it needs to be handwritten & if it worked before, it should work again. 👍

Congrats to the winners! And good luck to everyone who's playing!

Gotta question. How many times did you play before you won? Did you spread your plays out?

Been trying recently. Really want to win this for our kids, 5 & 3. Thanks!

I sent in for codes - I've been to a few stores, and they just don't have the specially marked bags where I live. Of course, they still have plenty of Guardians of the Galaxy bags, from the last promo...
