    won movie tickets. yippee

  3. Anyone else having trouble getting a free code when clicking on CLICK HERE TYO GET FREE CODE……nothing happens and no code is ever emailed.

  4. Free Code link not working today

    • Same here. I tried Firefox and IE – can’t get a free code on either browser. Will keep trying though :)! Thanks Sweetie for posting such an awesome giveaway!

  5. I have been having the same problem, free code not working

  6. Jamie Herda says

    See above: free codes don’t start until Tuesday April 12th.

    • Blaire Ruch says

      i got a free code today. i think april 12th is when you can start requesting weekly bonus codes by mail or mobile device.

  7. Lisa Dion says

    If you go to the Butterfinger facebook page people are posting codes on the wall. I just tried a random one that was posted and it let me play without any problems.

  8. Thanks for the FB page suggestion.

  9. Valerie Lemoine says

    I look at the FB page but I can’t seem to find the free code. All I found is more people mentioning the broken free code link.

  10. Here’s a juicy tip for this sweeps everyone:

    Buy a Butterfinger bar, get the code from the wrapper. Enter it in. The next day, use the same code. It works!

    For a $40,000 prize, I think buying one bar is worth it.

    I could never get the “Get Free Code” option to work for me.

    Good luck!

  11. Woo Hoo! I won movie tickets :)! If we won movie tickets, can we still enter for the Grand Prize? I checked the rules, but couldn’t find anything?

  12. Finally! The free code link worked but I was not a winner.:(

  14. both Facebook pages state they “are not available”…”the webpage might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.” Do you know what’s happening?
