Updated: Nestlé Android Kit Kat promotion now open – but not accepting entries.

Android Kit Kat
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?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Last 3 times I entered it had an “error”. Try again and the code has already been used. WTF?

Also they are no longer $1 🙁

Mine are also getting errors as of the day before yesterday. I sent an email but it didn’t sound like anyone else has reported it. Don’t know if it is even registering the entries. If you are still getting errors, please click the contact link at the bottom of the page so that they see this is a wider issue than just me 😉

Got another email from them. They are looking into it. They also sent me a list of all the codes that I entered and noted if I had won anything with them. All none except the $5 I won on the first one.

Member

Got the same email saying that they are looking into the issue. But i didn’t have to load them with my details, they just pulled up my code to tell me the bad news!!.. not so hard to find with just one code in the system : )
Popped back to the city Woolies to maybe grab another, the box was empty, competition is doing its thing!
No wonder there was a zero cash partnership between Nestle and Google. Nestle must be loving it!

I contacted them and they basically asked me every question on the ‘enter contest page’. I later got an email notifying me that I was not a winner. Thanks. No idea if the problem is resolved or if it will happen again. I’m taking a break and not having any kit kats for awhile.

Member

well considering the kit kat android was recently announced and to concide with that they decide to do a promotion so i really doubt google is gonna give ppl the old nexus 7 because its just pointless

Member

I can confirm they are the 2013 model. Mine just arrived from Nestle 🙂

How much per each?

Phew, so it wasn’t that Kit Kt and AusPost had teamed up and were blocking entries from rooted devices based on their postcode!!

Might be worth waiting a few days til the frenzy of people entering codes has calmed down a bit.

“There will be a total of 26,000 minutes randomly identified between the Promotion start time and date and close time and date. The first valid entry received after one of those minutes has passed will win a prize.”

They are working now!

Clearly its not working properly, because it claims that I didn’t win! Surely something must have gone wrong 😉

It’s unlikely but what if the 9th of December isn’t an arbitrary date but the Australian release date of the Nexus 5. Soon long to wait. (then again waiting until the 14th feels a long way away atm)

9th December is a bit close to Xmas for an initial release date. However, they might stagger the international release like they did for the 2013 Nexus 7.

After the debacle of the Nexus 4, I expect the Nexus 5 to be somewhat delayed release in Aus. I just hope it’s compatible with the LTE here.

I get same error.

@KitKat twitter is directing people to facebook.com/kitkatau for help

It seems even better than that – the field itself *requires* a four digit postcode – see here: http://i.imgur.com/Mb2jcDh.png

For what it’s worth, didn’t work for me either.
