It appears this doesn’t start until 1-6-12
Another Joy of Reading sweepstakes, I couldn’t win a prize on the last one. Don’t know about entering this one, these Nestle sweeps are bad luck for me.

Has anyone been able to get this one to work? Keeps telling me that the promotion hasnt started!?
It says you can enter once daily online. But it does not say how many times you can enter by mail. Is it the same, once daily?
Mary Taylor says
I am getting the message it doesn’t start until 1/6. Ahh it’s 1/9 and still nothing showing where to enter.

corinne gonz says
so i guess no one is getting this to work – correct? i have tried but never get anywhere and don’t even know who to ask about it.
desiree renee says
its working now!
The free code request form (http://rif.celebrationcorner.com/home.aspx/freecode) is not working as of Feb 3rd– at least for me it’s not. I’ve tried on 3 different computers and also on different browsers. Emailed Nestle website as the email address they normally send out free codes with cannot receive emails.
The rules for this new RIF sweeps does not mention being able to get free codes online, only by mail-in. Wonder if they finally realized the old, online free code request was still available and tried to disable it or if it’s just a server maintenance issue.
I got a reply to my email to Nestle, they have disabled the online free code request page for the 2012 RIF sweeps. You can only request free codes via mail for this year’s sweeps. Oh well, some of us got a few weeks of free entries in before they disabled the online form.
“Thank you for contacting Nestlé®. … We apologize for the inconvenience, however for the 2012 Nestlé Share the Joy of Reading Promotion; free codes are not available by email…”
Thanks for looking into this, John! I thought it was just my computer. Oh well!
I have typed in my code and have received the response of, you must type in a valid code.
I have typed in numerous codes and every time i receive an error message that says i must type in a valid code…. UGH!!!!
Sadly, I can’t even locate a place to enter the code.
I have been trying to enter the code i got and nothing! it keeps telling me enter a valid code! but i did!! i ate those nestle crunch bars and it’s the codes i got in it but it wont accept !!! 🙁 sucks i think i will just trash my trash lol
CAN NOT PUT MY PHONE NUMBER ON THE ENTERY FORM

I can’t put my phone number
I really think it is a scam to get your phone number and get unwanted phone calls.
