  1. same probs here.. just won the $25 but now sad thinking the email code may never come.. and i didn’t get a screen shot b/c i went to verify info and that doesn’t let you go back… call the number you all listed and man said only supervisor could give me code on phone and there wasn’t one available now.. said to wait 10-15 min for email.. what is the 20% code? anyone know that??

  2. elizabeth a says

    husband still waiting and waiting for his email. he won on 1/13.

  3. LaVonne Terrell says

    I was also told 7-14 days before you receive the email w/the codes & I won on the 18th.

    • Chuck Bell says

      I won a $50 gift card back on the 8th and still haven’t received and email or a gift card in the mail yet.
      It appears Pepsi has had a lot of problems with this promotion. At the beginning if you won it would give you a card number and PIN, but they are in the wrong format for the NFLSHOP.COM site (it wants a 4 digit PIN but Pepsi gave a 6 digit PIN).
      Now if you win it just says you will get an email with your codes (but they never show up).
      I have called both the NFL and Pepsi numbers listed and while both have very nice customer service reps, none of them said they had heard of this problem. That is surprising considering how many people are complaining on websites like this and have also called in.

  4. I just won a 25 dolaar gift card!!

  5. dollar* sorry

  6. I just won a 25.00 gift card. Hope I get email! So excited.

  7. Won a $50.00 NFLShop.com gift card!

  8. Just won the $25.00 NFL gift card! Woohoo:)

  9. Aww now after reading the other comments Im disappointed:( Im wondering if Im going to have the same issue..I clicked out to update my info and it wont let you go back. Hmmm

  10. Christina Oddy says

    I just won a $50 NFL Shop card, using the free entry, hope they got the issues fixed!

  11. elizabeth a says

    has anyone got their codes sent to them yet?

  12. Tammy Mauk says

    I just called and they told me that I have to wait 14 business days to receive the code. I won on Jan 26th. Guess I will wait.

    • my husband won on 1/11 and i called again yesterday. they said the same 14 business days. it’s beyond that now. i read in a blog yesterday that some people got emails last week that pepsi will send out gift cards. never got the email and i thought it was a code that you have to use on nfl.com.

      • Does anyone know if this is indeed the case that we’re getting physical gift cards now? I won on the 20th of January and have yet to receive anything. Everytime I call the number Sweetie posted its the cookie cutter response of “Please wait 14 business days or up to 3 weeks”. On a brighter note – the longer they wait maybe the more things will go on sale so we can get more for our giftcard money. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. I won a $25 gift card during the first two weeks of the contest and haven’t received it yet. I have made MANY calls, sent NUMEROUS emails, etc. and I get the same response–they are “looking into it.” I carelessly did not write down the date I won so they have to “look into it.” You’d think they would have my email address and such as proof. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  14. i called today and gave them my husbands info and they said they will email the code. still waiting. every time you call them you get a different answer. they first said 14 business days, then 3 weeks. i told them he won on 1-11. thats when she took his email address. i am to the point where i don’t think they know what they are doing.

  15. I just called them back. They said that the emails are scheduled to go out. Probably tomorrow. If I don’t get the email, because I am on the list, call back on Monday of next week. I will let you know if I receive it!

  16. Yep Tammy, I called today and basically heard the same. She said everyone should receive their codes by Friday, if not then to give a call on Monday.

  17. i will go for the milder word, they are such fibbers. every time you speak with them it is the same answer. my husband and son are still waiting for their emails. whoever marketed this contest, they didn’t do a very good job. i feel sorry for the people when you call the toll free number, i bet they get a lot of angry people. they shouldn’t have said you will get a email when you won the game, they should have said somewhere in the rules that it will take 6-8 weeks or so. because that is how long my husband and son have waited so far. i guess i just have to be more patient, lol.

  18. I got my email today.

  19. I got an email with my code today

  20. I got an email yesterday saying i won a $100 gift card!!! I didnt even know I had won! There were a few times when the game froze on me, so it must have been one of those times!!

  21. Manda Valenti says

    I won $50 back on 1/23…..hope the email with my gc code comes this week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Just called again…. =( they told me all the codes were issued, and I should have gotten it =(
    They are not sure what they are going to do,……..

  23. Manda Valenti says

    My fiance and I both won $50 codes…..no emails for either of us.

  24. Jamie Herda says

    I called for the 3rd damn time. She verified that I won, but said “just keep looking” in my email for the code…absolutely no idea when it should arrive.

  25. elizabeth a says

    still waitin’ anyone else?
