The rules say "Request for free Game Piece must be postmarked by 11/15/2010 and received by 11/30/2010" but this posting states an end date of 4/2. Is this correct?
Wendy (Sweetie) says
Sorry about that. I have fixed the post now with the correct dates.
Why is this considered winnable? Regardless of entry method, the odds of winning won't be greater than 1:5,259 and there doesn't seem to be a second chance drawing.
Thanks, I mailed off my SASE's this morning.
I saw that Wal-Mart Supercenter has some Banquet dinners for a little over $1. None that I saw had the specially marked packaging but maybe when they get new stock in. Might be an idea for those looking for a product for a little more than sending for a free game piece.
Ive eaten three meals so far with no wins however if you eat the macaroni theere was a small pamphlet with 4 coupons plus two more on the box .Which I thought was great .
I bought two meals with no wins.
I sent off my SASEs a few weeks ago and still haven't received my game pieces. Is anyone else still waiting for their game pieces?
I'm still waiting also
still waiting Im thinking because I didn't send an actual peice of paper along with my SASE saying game peice request on it I wont get one 🙁
Has anyone received their game pieces yet? I sent for mine over a month ago and still haven’t received them. I don’t know anything about mail in sweeps, but I expected to receive them by now…
I haven’t recd mine either. Sent about a month ago too.
I sent in one request awhile ago, and just received my game piece on Saturday (in the mail). It came in a yellow envelope and it was an actual box w’out the meal of-course. LOL – I was like WHAT IS THIS BOX but then I remembered the contest. I don’t know why they ask for a SASE when they didn’t even use it in the end. Oh well – at least they sent a box. No winner here. Will keep trying though ;).
I got the same thing as you Renee. Funny, I wonder what they’re doing with all the SASE? lol.

I LOVE YOUR CONTEST LOVE LOVE IT! JULIE COOLEY
Stop sending out your SASE. I just received a notice saying they are all out and they sent me a coupon for one free Banquet meal as a thank you.
I sent in for three game pieces and last week they sent me three coupons for free banquet items because they ran out of game pieces. So that was a good enough win for me! (3 Free Product Coupons)
