Free Entry Into Walkers Mini Ipod Every 5 Mins Giveaway

42 replies
Found 5th Sep 2005
Walkers are curently running a promotion which is giving away a Mini Ipod (4GB) every 5 Minutes throughout September.

The normal route of entry is via a packet of Walkers crisps and inputting the code onto their website, but due to usual legal reasons they have to run a no purchase necessary route, which usually is via mail, but if you enter your email address on the following website and then text the code which they email you back (normal SMS rates only) you will be entered into the next 5 minute draw.

There is no limit to the amount of entries in each draw and the prize is pretty cool for nothing. Good luck all, let me know if you get a win out of it.

I take it no ones had a win yet, well you got 144 draws each day, so if you send enough texts you gotta be a winner eventually, maybe all thoses free texts on the o2 sims maybe of use.

82220 is classed as a 'premium' sms number - in almost all cases it *WON'T* be included in any free text message bundles.

(Even on easy mobile, it's 11p rather than their normal 5p for text messages.)

thanks for the info jogu, i cant check mine cus its orange contract, but im still gonna keep trying even if it is 10p or so a go.

of course I'm using my easy mobile sim with £10 credit for £5.

You do realise that at 10p per go it'd be cheaper to buy some multipacks of the crisps and enter via the website? ;-)

I got a 24 bag multipack for 2 quid in sainsburies the other way.

Morrisons have 3 x 6 packs for 1.80 currently too iirc.

Though I'm in Scotland. Maybe they charge you cross border lot more

What do you think the best time to enter would be? I'm assuming they run through the night although lokbige mentioned something about 144 chances per day which would mean only 12 hours.
Obviously it would have been silly to enter when the school holidays were on but now the kids have gone back.... :wink:

288, although i was sure i went to school, i now believe i must have missed a few lessons of maths!!

if you view their site they have detailed graphs on the amount of entries per time slot per day, pretty useful for someone that knows what a graph is lol.

i think i was left behind whilst eating the pie charts, mmmmmmmmmmm

I must say that when they're on offer the MultiPacks DO often work out at less than 10p a bag...

Looks like the best time to enter is usually about 5:45am.

weekday mornings are also fairly quiet, but avoid lunchtime and evenings.

I'm keeping my codes until England score a goal and then banging them in while the rest of the country is still jumping up and down

merg. :?

eh? :arrow: :?

That is if England do score a goal, looking at the performance against Wales, it's gonna be a lucky goal again, no doubt. Not meaning to sound negative, but they need to up a gear quickly.

The site says they're all silver ones

Original Poster

Congratulations, glad someone got something out of my post, i havent entered that many times, and not had a win yet, i'll keep trying though. Nice to see my first ever post in here is still top of the list. Great site, great hard working mods/admins, many thanks guys/girls.

I'm still going at this one, no luck thus far, but at least they've made a little effort to ensure the rejection messages are not all the same

The site says they're all silver ones


Great. Just what i'd have picked, given the choice

Thanks for this!

I usually just forget about the "win this!" adverts on packets... I never win anyway! :P

Happy days, I'm a winner

3.26pm draw, Johnnypanic wins using a npn code. Ain't life sweet

Johnnypanic

Congratulations johnnypanic two winners in one three page thread can't be bad :thumbsup:

Just to let you all know I received my prize yesterday and that it was indeed silver. :thumbsup:
Oh, and congrats Johnnypanic

Is it a 4gb or 6gb machine. I suspect 4gb, but just want confirmation. Although I'll know soon enough

Johnnypanic

if you bought a load of multipacks, waited for the website to restart a new draw, and then mass texted all the codes, that might help you

It's a 4gb.

I have 24 bags... 24 codes... nothing to pay to enter. I hope I get one.

P.S. I'll be putting the code in different time slots. No point in competing against myself!

Some people must just be lucky...!!

You entered in the evening AND it was a NPN code AND you managed to get it after 3 goes.

I just entered 8 multi-pack codes in the early hours of the morning and as far as I know I didn't win on any of them.

A QUICK QUESTION:

When you don't win they reply straight away. Do they reply straight away if you do win, or does it take a while? I'm waiting for one to come through.

I tried the NPN option and never got any email from them

Update: Tried again last night, not received any email again... maybe they dont like me :x
