So far out of the retailers Wal-mart is offering US fans the chance to win a trip to the US premiere, a trip to Australia(We love our Aussie fans, but we have no idea why Australia or what Australia has to do with Twilight), or a Bella’s Bracelet. After you pre-order your DVD you are emailed a special code within 72 hours. You then visit this site breakingdawnpremieresweepstakes, enter your code, and you are entered in the sweepstakes for the possible chance of winning the above prizes.
Now if you read the fine print on Walmart’s main site, you can discover that you don’t have to purchase anything to enter. (Thumbs up to US sweepstakes laws!)
After some clicking around the official rules(bottom of page scroll down), here is what we discovered: “D. FREE CODE REQUEST: To request a free Code via email, send an email during the Entry Period to firstname.lastname@example.org (“Code Request”). Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, damaged, misdirected, illegible, or human error that may occur in the receipt or processing of such requests. Receipt of Code Requests will not be confirmed.” It’s ONE CODE (Either free or via preorder) per person. So don’t try to enter it a million times because they will void your entries! They further state:
A. Any attempt by any Entrant or any other person to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, and logins or using any other methods will void that person’s Entries, and such person may be disqualified by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Automated means of entry and Entries by any means which subvert the entry process are prohibited, and all such Entries will be void.
B. There is a limit of one (1) Entry per person and per email address during the Entry Period.
We also discovered that when we were reading the official rules, they mention Target. So, it’s possible that Target may also be promoting this contest or something similar at some point.
EDITED: We sent an email to summit regarding the email for the free code not working. As soon as we have more info we’ll let you know. Not sure if the error is on their end, a third-party vendor, or Wal-marts.
Edit 2: Just heard back from our usual Summit contact. It’s not their area, but they have forwarded our info regarding the problem to the guys in their home entertainment division who are involved in this area and they are looking into this right now.
Edit 3: The Summit guys worked on the problem yesterday and it is now supposedly fixed. I tried to send away for the code and so far the email has gone through (yesterday’s attempt bounced back almost immediately). So now. I’m just waiting for the code itself. Since the purchase interface for the code says it could take up to 72 hours, I’ll report back if I have my code by then.
Edit 4: I received my code via email roughly an hour after applying, well within the 72 hour time cited on their website.
