After the specially marked Android themed Kit Kat bars began arriving in Woolworths stores last week, the competition run by Nestlé in co-operation with Google is now open.
The competition, which gives you the chance to win a one of a thousand Nexus 7 Tablet 16GB or one of 25 thousand, $5 Google Play vouchers, runs from the 1st of October(today) until 11.59pm Australian Eastern Daylight Saving Time (“AEDST”) on Monday 9 December 2013. To enter you need to purchase one of the specially marked 45g Kit Kat bars you can see pictured above from any participating Woolworths supermarket or Woolworths Petrol. On the inside of the pack you will find an 8-digit code that you enter into the Kit Kat website.
The launch however has not been exactly smooth, I’ve been trying to enter my codes since I woke this morning but it keeps stalling on the post code, it does not seem to want to accept my perfectly legitimate post code – nor a neighbouring one. I’ve had Chris try it out with his details and he has had the same issue, with apparently no 4-digit post codes being accepted.
There’s also some controversy in the US, where the Hershey run competition may have slightly different rules, with some people being advised that no matter how many times they enter, they are only eligible to win one prize. With entrants being advised that there is only ‘one prize per name, address, email and/or household’. Our competition here in Australia is run by Nestlé, it appears from the terms and conditions for the competition are available on the Kit Kat Australia homepage that there is nothing stopping multiple entries.
We’ve contacted Nestle Australia with regards to the competition form not accepting entries. We’ll update with any further details.
UPDATE: Nestlé Australia has advised that the issue has been resolved and the site is now accepting codes. I’ve confirmed this…but haven’t won. Has anyone won anything yet?
How many Kit Kat codes do you have so far?
