Wal-mart Breaking Dawn Sweepstakes And How to Enter Without a Purchase!

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 breakingdawnecode@brandmovers.com (“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.


  1. Christina says:

    I preordered my movie yesterday so I’m waiting for my code.

  2. Can UK fans pre-order??

  3. I tried sending for my free code and I keep getting a failure delivery back so not sure if their link to request a free code is working or not.

    I tried emailing, but got a message saying:

    “Final-recipient: rfc822; breakingdawnecode@brandmovers.net
    Action: failed
    Status: 5.1.1
    Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 511 sorry, no mailbox here by that name (#5.1.1 – chkuser)

    • Angela Graves says:

      nevermind. That was the email I got when I selected :don’t have a code’ on the sweepstakes page. Don’t use that link.

  5. Sarah Atlee Mann says:

    I copied the exact address from the official rules section and I got a failed response too….not sure what’s up?!

  6. Same here. Tried changing the e-mail address and each time got “undeliverable”.

  7. The email for Code Request doens’t work and there is no addition contact information in the official rules, to contact someone to fix the issue. Too good to be true to be able to enter without purchase?

  8. Slightly off topic, but if that’s the cover for the box, I’m not crazy about it. I know its the back of Bella’s wedding dress and all, but I would have liked to seen Edward and Bella in keeping with the other covers.

    Nevertheless, I’m off to order now!

  9. Well, for one thing, there is no E on the end of Dawn…breakingdawnEcode?? I took out the E and haven’t received a delivery failure yet….could it be a typo? I have Code Request in subject and Code Request in email body.

  10. Coldonecullen says:

    Perhaps its a trip to Australia because we are like 17 hours ahead of you guys and we get to see the movies first. I think that Australia is actually the first country to get to view the Twilight Movies each release. I know I have been to all of the Midnight premiers and our release date is always the day before the US.

  11. Update, I DID get a code. I took out the E in the address and simply put “Code Request” (without quotations) in the subject bar and “Code Request” (without quotes) in the body of the email and that was it. I just got a code this morning.

  12. there dvd special edition, in Walmart Argentina? 🙂

  13. JenniferK. says:

    Request for a code for Breaking Dawn competition come from Germany and would be very glad when I have success:)

  14. I put the email address just the way it is and put code request in the subject line and got my code in second.

  15. I sent for a free code (even though I did purchase the movie from wal-mart) and got a code but the code did not work. What do I do now?
