Can't see where I hit submit...?

Posted by: sj7 on October 12, 2017

This should be odd - you can enter unlimited times

Posted by: Shosh1 on October 12, 2017

You can only enter 10 times without a pin. 1) register first, 2) find the little man icon.

Posted by: anonymous on October 12, 2017

10 times per day without purchase

Posted by: Parallel on October 12, 2017

Yes when I go to register for the contest, there is no place to submit entry.

Posted by: oddbod on October 12, 2017

Check all the boxes on the form and then it will let you scroll down all the way and then just uncheck the last two and you are good to go

Posted by: abluesgirl on October 12, 2017

To access the game you have to re-login every time too (which is very poor usability design).

Posted by: anonymous on October 12, 2017

Oddbod. I had the same problem. I figured out if I went to the right edge of the form ( not the screen) , pressed and scrolled down, I could move the form down to the submit button.

Posted by: Dinny on October 12, 2017

I did all 10 entries at once, no need to resign in for me.

I was on my iPad

Posted by: anonymous on October 12, 2017


Posted by: anonymous on October 12, 2017

I tried this in Edge, Chrome and IE but I cannot find a submit button anywhere. I tried ticking all the boxes but that didn't do anything.

Posted by: seb777 on October 12, 2017

I see a submit button (on the registration form) in Safari, FF and Chrome. Not sure why you're not.

Posted by: AJJ on October 12, 2017

For those who don't get to the submit button, there is a thin red line on the right on the entry form, not quite at the edge. Scroll down that red line! The form will move down then.

Posted by: Dinny on October 12, 2017

My issue is assigning ballots, I enter the number next to the prize, but the tally still shows 0 and Submit won t work. I m on an iPad so can t tab to refresh the number. Any ideas?

Posted by: CLG on October 12, 2017

Nvm-I figured it out

Posted by: CLG on October 12, 2017

this is a five and a half month, contest.

just know what you are getting into.

Posted by: typhoon on October 12, 2017

thphoon, That is the issue!. Forms worked great for me but this is time consuming and there are 170 days to go!

Posted by: kewlshopper on October 12, 2017

everything worked smoothly for me

Posted by: Parallel on October 12, 2017

I don't get this game at all. I hovered over every spot of the screen but didn't see anything but still got a ballot.

Posted by: lemmiwinks on October 12, 2017

Have to hit the submit button several times before it will go through...very time consuming contest...I think I'll be passing on this one. Good luck to all that enter.

Posted by: SUZIEQ on October 12, 2017

Hi Lemmiwinks
You get a maximum of 5 ballots if you find Guissepe within a few seconds and then only 4 etc as the timer counts down....they give you 1 ballot even if you didn't find him though and as they say, it only takes one ticket to win :-)

Posted by: Christian12 on October 12, 2017

Looks as if their have been complaints. Easier to log in today and first page was a survey on the contest. If you say that you have played before it then ask you about the complexity of the contest. Yesterday I had to try three different browsers before I could access the entry form.

Posted by: GL on October 13, 2017

Hopefully this year I can win at least a coupon. Their last contest I entered daily and didn't win even a coupon though a lot of other CG people did.

Posted by: anonymous on October 13, 2017

Awesome thanks Dinny! It worked. I had no idea there was a scrolling bar to the right of Guiseppe.

Posted by: oddbod on October 13, 2017

Great they have a npn entry option that doesn't involve an essay and stamps.

Posted by: muckymoo on October 13, 2017

Day 2 Oct 13. first attempt today ,I found him clicked submit, progressed to allocate ballot ;put 4 in box ; displays you forgot to allocate ballots. Unable to proceed beyond this

Posted by: winns229 on October 13, 2017

Finding 10 Giuseppes everyday until March is a lot of Giuseppes lol

Posted by: senns7 on October 13, 2017

This contest made me buy their pizza today LOL! Safeway (Calgary) all their pizzas for $3.99! Great deal.

Posted by: anonymous on October 13, 2017

Ok so I'm getting pretty fast at this now but is there a way you don't have to assign your ballots after every time you find Giuseppe? Thats what's really slowing me down. I timed myself it took 2minutes for 10 entries. I think without selecting ballots every time it could cut down even more.

Posted by: lemmiwinks on October 14, 2017

i haven't found a way around assigning the ballots after each game either.. it is kind of annoying!

Posted by: eriness on October 14, 2017

must have a valid drivers license, in order to win the van.

Posted by: anonymous on October 14, 2017

Contest sponsors need to realize that no matter how fun or innovative their contest is, no one wants to play the same thing for 6 months every day. You could have the most fun game in the world but it still gets annoying after a while lol.

Posted by: lemmiwinks on October 15, 2017

Very weird. I don't have to assign ballots everytime it keeps track of them for me even until the next day. The thing I hate is having to log in every time to play again.

Posted by: crobich on October 15, 2017

No submit button, please fix !!!!

Posted by: Ruth Dunlop on October 15, 2017

I got 6 ballots on one play today

Won a free pizza from them

Posted by: Parallel on October 18, 2017

I'm wondering if "my hubby can enter daily like. Me with his email

Posted by: anonymous on October 18, 2017

There is a total of 10 times to find Guiseppe each day. It took me all of 5 minutes to get those 10 games. I may not find him in time each time to gain 5 points, but I did at least only get one - 1 point win. I guess by the time this is over by each day I could reach 50 points per day. If everyone gives up on this contest the odds of winning become greater in my favor. - Anyone who wants to quit it's okay by me! Who's with me?

Posted by: GRANNYHIN on October 19, 2017

I won a free pizza. I'm very surprised more people are putting ballots in for the X-Box than for Free Pizza for a Year because there are 10 draws for the pizza and only 5 for the X-Box, plus the pizza prize is worth more dollarwise. Are there that many people who don't like pizza? and that many contest players who play X-Box? I'm playing the odds and throwing 90% of my ballots in for the pizza.

Posted by: Dinny on October 19, 2017

Dinny...very strategic, but don't give away all the secrets. Kidding, but you raise a good point. However, it only takes a lucky 1 ballot to win the van or $$.
Grannyhin that is hilarious. Good one about letting people drop out of this one. I agree, hopefully more people quit and chances get better for us.
Wow though, how lazy can you be to complain about going through a few screens, especially to win a free prize...jeez seriously it's not that big a deal. But if that really causes you grief, yes please bypass this contest.
Wonder what you you would consider reasonable...just one thing like email and that's it right.
Relax, I'm just teasing you all who complain. The contests that frustrate me sometimes are the ones that run for 6 to 12 months!!! But I have been seeing fewer of these lately. Maybe the sponsors are eceiving feedback that we don't it.
Keep having fun, and get that Giuseppe!!

Posted by: RobO on October 20, 2017

I'm into this one! LOL In fact I am keeping track how many entries I have. I have 233 anyone else so obsessive?. I am putting most of mine into the cash, some into the pizza as well

Posted by: seadpg on October 21, 2017

Seadog that you. Haven't seen you on these comment boards for a while...much like Parallel who I think won millions on the Lotto Max haha.
I'm at 112 ballots way behind you. Must've missed some days. But one of those 112 is the "lucky" one!!
Funny how no one (well proportionally) wants the Roku. I get it, why would you want something when no one watches TV anymore.

Posted by: RobO on October 21, 2017

I won a coupon for a free pizza.

Posted by: anonymous on October 22, 2017

What kind of pizza to you win for the Free Pizza for a Year?

Posted by: anonymous on October 22, 2017

I didn't realise there is 12 prizes PER DAY for a free pizza. That's awesome!! There should be lots of us getting these. And coming up to the first draw for Free Pizza for a Year on Oct 25. Here's hoping.

Posted by: RobO on October 22, 2017 say the least.... Can't enter!!!!

Posted by: Mai Ferguson on October 25, 2017

ggrrrrrr second time it says 7 ballots when I find him but only gives me 6 :(

Posted by: katrinabadina on October 27, 2017

5 is the highest I've ever seen

Posted by: seadog on October 27, 2017

Hurray! I won a coupon for a free pizza :)

Posted by: CreamyGoodness on October 28, 2017

FYI - if you can't find Giuseppe and the clock is ticking down (losing ballots) you can refresh the page and it starts all over at 30 seconds, you can keep doing this until you get him without ending your turn.

Posted by: PuttyTatters on October 28, 2017

My sister won the Free Pizza For A Year! She'll be getting 52 coupons for 52 free pizzas. Expiry date will be June 30, 2019. (She'll give me some of them.) No worries... there are 9 more draws for that prize.

Posted by: Dinny on October 29, 2017

I get 6 ballots when I use my tablet... 5 when I use my laptop. Strange.

Posted by: Dinny on October 31, 2017

PuttyTaters thanks for that hint, wouldn't have found him otherwise

Posted by: GG on November 1, 2017

thats really strange i max out on 5 on either

Posted by: seadog on November 1, 2017

I get one extra entry for a twitter post and one extra for Facebook but the rest of the days entry s are a max of 5.

Posted by: GL on November 1, 2017

How many ballots does everyone have? This is one long contest!

I enter Me on MY DESKTOP =890 and hubby on my ipad=520

Posted by: seadog on November 4, 2017

Curious..How does an Instant win happen? Is there a pop-up when you find Giuseppe?

Posted by: wandajeanp on November 5, 2017

I never get an entry for a Facebook share!

Posted by: Sande on November 5, 2017

I received an e-mail when I won my free pizza

Thank You :)

and Congrats :)

Posted by: wandajeanp on November 7, 2017

Where is the pin on the box/in the box? I can't find it. The UPC or part of it comes back as invalid.

Posted by: Dinny on November 7, 2017

i didn't buy the pizza because it didn't advertise the pin or contest

Posted by: seadog on November 8, 2017

I too am having trouble locating the pin on my pizzas. Help!

Posted by: Syntifik on November 8, 2017

The pin is on the inside of the box in the middle of a side VERY faint. you have to take the box apart to find it

Posted by: dauliffe on November 9, 2017

does the front of the box indicate a pin included at all?

Posted by: seadog on November 9, 2017

Thank you!! Found it. Very faint.

Posted by: Syntifik on November 9, 2017

Only the boxes with the contest shown on the front have a pin #

Posted by: dauliffe on November 10, 2017

Instant wins are only on the codes found inside the boxes, the games just give you entries into the draws

Posted by: Shirley54 on November 14, 2017

I have like 5 ballots lol -I should give up now

Posted by: alphin on November 15, 2017

I bought 2 pizzas and no pin inside. I see no pizzas in the store with the contest showing on the box. Disappointed

Posted by: anonymous on November 19, 2017

the pizzas to be in the contest must have the contest sticker on the front of the box. so far we have only been able to find the rising crust Canadiana style pizza with the contest at any of the stores in my area in Central Ontario. The other product we found the sticker on was the mini pizzas in a box and the panini product which is the one advertised that you get if you enter 4 pins, they will mail you a coupon for that. The costs of the pizzas at various stores really amazed me. Our loblaws store they were almost 7 dollars, higher again at our Metro. Walmart had the lowest prices of any of them and as well they only had the marked Canadiana style contest pizza. I think as this is a new contest the stores are not putting out new marked pizzas until they sell their old stock.

Posted by: Shirley54 on November 20, 2017

Not able to enter this evening: "502 Bad Gateway nginx". Ah...well. Hopefully it will be resolved tomorrow.

Posted by: Sue A. on November 23, 2017

I am getting the same problem :(

Posted by: eriness on November 23, 2017

I think it's time for Guiseppe and me to go our separate ways...

Posted by: luckbealady on November 24, 2017

every couple of weeks they do the pizza giveaways and the media streamer.about the same from now til end of contest. the xbox is one a month giveaway during this time and the cash is a one time giveaway in January and the Van is end of February..

Posted by: Shirley54 on November 25, 2017

Is it me or does Giuseppe not seem very politically correct?

Posted by: anonymous on November 28, 2017

Has anyone ever won without a UPC? I'm up to 1200 entries without one so just wondering if it's worth it to keep trying.

Posted by: AnnieR on November 29, 2017

I havent won an instant win and dont see many here claiming they got one of the many free pizzas but the other draws are every few weeks so those wont be reported very often. Often when there is a marked product pin code we have tons of non contesting people entering at home that would never enter a contest online so we have tons of competition for these types of contests. Very hard to win on those pop cases contests, hundreds of thousands enter these pin code product contests on a regular basis. Just hope for the car lol.

Posted by: Shirley54 on November 29, 2017

Thanks for that Shirley54

Posted by: AnnieR on November 30, 2017

the better I get at finding him, the smaller his head seems to get ;-)

Posted by: powderpuff66 on December 3, 2017

Hi everyone
Does anyone have a pin
Thanks a bunch

Posted by: calias96 on December 7, 2017

the pins are unique. they are printed on the inside of specially marked contest pizza boxes. You have to buy a pizza or the mini pizzas that have the square contest sticker on the corner of the box and cut it open carefully. it is a number alphabet combination that can only be used once.

Posted by: Shirley54 on December 8, 2017

I havent seen a single specially-marked contest pizza box anywhere in Winnipeg, and I've been to many different grocery stores. Weird!

Posted by: Dinny on December 8, 2017

for 3 weeks now in Central Ontario I can only find the marked panini boxes, the rising crust canadiana and one other flavour, cant remember what it was. eaten and gone lol. This is what happens quite often in contesting and it backfires on the company. they run these contests to get their product moving but then none of us buy the product because we are waiting for the marked boxes. Those are sitting in a giant warehouse somewhere awaiting an order from Loblaws or walmart etc.

Posted by: Shirley54 on December 9, 2017

i have around 2000 entries for this contest. I was just wondering if the entries are just part of the game and perhaps just the first entry is the one that gets put in for the contest win. What do you think, contesters?

Posted by: anonymous on December 17, 2017

For some reason, the comment i posted above, says anonymous posted it but in fact, i posted it...thanks

Posted by: Antiquer on December 17, 2017

I hope the entries count otherwise I am wasting time everyday playing this game. I am around 1800 entries

Posted by: GG on December 17, 2017

If you read the rules it says that each point counts as an individual entry for the prize you entered for. Apart from the car and the $10,000 the other items have draws throughout the contest. If you win one of these your points accumulated throughout the contest period are eliminated for that particular prize but all other entries carry on. At present I have 3,111 accumulated in 4 of the five catagories but does not mean much as I am sure others have the same or more.

Posted by: GL on December 17, 2017

thank you for your comment GL

Posted by: Antiquer on December 18, 2017

I just hope there isn't a computer gliche that wipes out our entries.

Posted by: seadog on December 18, 2017

my thoughts exactly seadog

Posted by: GG on December 19, 2017

o o having trouble loading

Posted by: seadog on December 19, 2017

Using unique pins gives you 50 entries per pin. I've had a few. One said I won a panini and I figured they would email me the coupon but never got anything. I've been trying to win an Xbox One for over a year and have been putting my entries towards with with secondary prices of the cash and the van. I just figured everyone would be shooting for the cash and van and thought i'd have a better chance at the xbox. Maybe everyone else was thinking the same thing?

Posted by: Xakhaz on December 21, 2017

i never got my panini coupon either.

Posted by: Shirley54 on December 21, 2017

I've spent more time looking for guiseppe than I did my last husband lol

Ha! Very good Shirley54

Posted by: CateAteMyDogma on December 22, 2017

This contest is tedious: expiry is too long and 10 entries each time is too much! cant wait for it to be over! ugh $%@#$%$%!!!

Posted by: brianamb on December 30, 2017

Issue today- clicked on find Guiseppe- and the game didn't come up- just a blank red scree- so I went out and tried again and got the same! UGH! Does that mean I won't be able to enter anymore? Thanks guys!

Posted by: anne w on January 4, 2018

same happened to me today. red screen

Posted by: lizmur on January 5, 2018

Haven't had the red screen, this game was fun at first but is now feeling a bit task-like. 4,000 ballots, so far. I'm trying to mix them all up but I am so, so tired of hunting down this little man, hahaha

What's everyone's ballot count! I like that they took away the view of the amount of ballots in each draw - simply because the loss of the page is a time saver. Phew!

Hoping someone from CG gets the vehicle!!

Posted by: syntifik on January 10, 2018

I came late to the party, only have about 2,000. My strategy (if you can call it that) is that if I get five points, I allot them to the car. If I get fewer than five, they go to the cash. I don't bother with any of the others. That would be sweet if one of us won!!

Posted by: powderpuff66 on January 10, 2018

powderpuff66 that is exactly what I do as well, I am at around 2600 I didn't see the contest right away

3800 ballots so far for me..

4515 ballots so far- I'm dumping them all on the van.

Posted by: anne w on January 14, 2018

anyone else getting invalid pin codes? Twice I ve entered codes and it says it s invalid. My first email to them they said it didn t work for them either and sent me a new one but I haven t heard back on the second.

Posted by: Hashtagwinner on January 14, 2018

trying to figure out the draw dates...
cash Jan 31, van Feb 21??
yet contest ends March 31? any thoughts?

Posted by: seadog on January 25, 2018

Wouldn't it be GREAT if this contest ended a month early ? That's my thoughts :)

Posted by: SandyC on January 27, 2018

According to the chart on the rules page the $10,000 cash prize will be drawn on January 31st and the Dodge Caravan February 31st. X box monthly draw until March 7th and final draws for the Pizza for a year and Roku is March 31st. Also 12 pizzas daily until March 31

Posted by: GL on January 27, 2018

for people with pin code problems try to redo the ones that could be a G or a 6 or an 0 or a O or a Q. sometimes the ink is so faint or crinkled that you think you are putting i the proper one but it is too close to tell. same with number 1 and small l.

Posted by: Shirley54 on January 28, 2018

Draw for the Dodge Caravan is February 21st. But as GL was saying, all of the prizes have different draw dates, and those prizes where there are multiples are drawn on various dates throughout the contest period.

Posted by: shannonm on January 28, 2018

so I am guessing there is no point to put any ballots towards the 10k after January 31? Is that what you think??

Posted by: seadog on January 28, 2018

there is only one draw for the money and it is end of this month. and only one draw for the vehicle end of feb. so dont waste ballots for those prizes after the deadline is over.

Posted by: Shirley54 on January 28, 2018

I'm at 5027 and I can say that... The Thrill is Gone.

Posted by: CatAteMyDogma on January 30, 2018

I had a pin that didn't work today, had to send them pictures of the pin as well as the box that the pizza came in. She emailed me a new pin this afternoon.

Posted by: GG on January 30, 2018

Dr. oetker just announced this morning that they are closing their production facility in new brunswick and laying off 180 people due to the economic times and trying to be viable in the very competitive frozen pizza market. they are going to be making the pizzas in Ontario after May.

Posted by: Shirley54 on January 31, 2018

OMG!!! I won the $10,000
this is by far my biggest win! I'm freaking out! wish i didn't have debt.. i know the responsible thing i SHOULD do... but.. i mean i kinda have to take my family on our first ever trip don't I? maybe half goes to debt and half on a trip.. i know i should wait till the declaration form is accepted before i truly freak out but... WOO HOO!!

Posted by: meliahikes on January 31, 2018

yay to you!!

Posted by: seadog on January 31, 2018

this is so awesome, i am precariously living thru you as if I won! Please give every detail. Did they email or phone? Let us know as the process goes how it all ends up in your deserving hands. Have fun with it!!

how many ballots did you have in there?

Oh man I love you here when someone on this site wins! That's so cool meliahikes!

Posted by: CatAteMyDogma on January 31, 2018

thanks everyone~ i know i get so excited when contestgirl people win the big prize too..
they emailed me and i've sent the declaration form back.. now the horrifying 3 week wait lol. i think i'm going to put $7k on debt and $3 towards a trip... i've ALWAYS wanted to go to Cuba.. i'm a landscaper and the entire country is organic so i'm very interested in the gardens, and my husband is a mechanic who would love to walk through a town with cool old cars everywhere.. we'll presumably have to save up to take all 4 of us on a trip but 3k is a nice strt, and 7k less of debt is obviously a big help too! i don't even want to say how many ballots i had... 300 on the cash and 700 on the van.. i gave up on this contest a week ago because i figured i was so far behind everyone. only takes one ballot to win i guess!

Posted by: meliahikes on January 31, 2018

Congratulations melia! I had 5,000+ ballots for the cash so you are right, it only takes one ballot to win! The trip to Cuba sounds wonderful, and so happy someone from CG won! Congrats and enjoy :)

Posted by: Syntifik on January 31, 2018

oh isnt this a wonderful contestgirl win and thanks so much for sharing and what you will do you think with the cash.! gives me goosebumps lol. hopefully someone here will win the Van too

Huge congrats!!!

Wonderful to hear that you had this fantastic win. Did you subscribe to their newsletter meliahikes?

Posted by: Jetta on February 2, 2018

nice win!
I wondered where the $10000 went, thought the site went funny on me!
now for the Van!

Posted by: anon on February 2, 2018

What a wonderful win meliahikes I'm so thrilled for you!

Posted by: kim k on February 2, 2018

i didn't subscribe to their newsletter.. i never do unless it's mandatory.. and then i try to unsubscribe fairly soon after the contest ends. i found this contest to be horrible, so i only entered once or twice a week... i had less than 1000 entries altogether. all my big wins i usually never missed a day but this one... too much work! good luck ti everyone with the minivan

Posted by: meliahikes on February 2, 2018

Big congratulations meliahikes on your fantastic win of $10,000! Just a note, we go to Cuba quite often and as far as cost it is one of the most reasonable priced places to vacation with beautiful beaches and yes, your husband would love all the old cars!

Posted by: lin13 on February 2, 2018

Congrats meliahikes!!! So happy to hear your planning a trip for your family as part of your win, I was able to take my family to Hawaii years ago after a great win, that trip created memories for my husband & kids that will never be forgotten, it was SO amazing. If you choose to create some memories, you won't regret it. Thats what I love about winning contests, its the opportunity to really enjoy something great with no guilt about how to pay for it. Enjoy!

Posted by: sharonmci on February 2, 2018

Congrats meliahikes. That is so fabulous you won all that money. Have a great holiday with your family.

Posted by: dgp on February 2, 2018

Congrats meliahikes on an EPIC win! Glad you are going to take some to enjoy and make memories. Life is short and there is always debt.

Posted by: jking on February 2, 2018

Congrats meliahikes, you give us all hope. I am seeing some strange things happening on this site. My entries for the van, went from over 3000, to 950. The grand total was over 4000. All other prizes had a few entries each, then on my last time around they all went to 0, anyone else having trouble. Keep playing meliahikes, maybe this is your year.

Posted by: PATZ on February 2, 2018

Conrats meliahikes! Enjoy your holiday. Well done!

Posted by: jane1 on February 2, 2018

Sorry, I mean congrats!

Posted by: jane1 on February 2, 2018

Congrats on the win meliahikes. So happy you will get to make some wonderful memories on a trip too. Also happy one of our fellow contestors won. It always feels like a big win like this was won by a fellow friend. Happy for you.

Best of luck all for the Dodge.

What province are you in Meliahikes?

Posted by: Seadog on February 2, 2018

awesome win meliahikes!! and wildthing58 "a couple of $10,000 wins" and miali1 for $10,000 holy smokes wow. luck be a wonderful thing.
meliahikes, just remember to keep some aside for 2 things:
1) Lotsa Giuseppe pizzas hahaha...even splurge for the rising crust
2) pot me gonna boom
3) or sell the prize and get $10,000 for it haha
enjoy the trip, and yes Cuba is THE most affordable island. They're 4* is a 3* elsewhere, 3* is a 2*, etc. Don't go with huge expectations, and you will be very happy (ex lots of people complain about the food). But the absolute most beautiful white sand beaches though, and lots of rum rum rum and the friendliest people. You just can't go wrong with a week all-inclusive for probably $800 tax in if you're flexible with dates.

Shucks you're (or is it your you toolbox) right it's "their"'s late, long day working terribly terribly sorry on that one.
BTW, wasn't dissing Cuba, it would be awesome. Been 3 times, gonna (go ahead correct that one) go again. Relax, go back your hole. I think you read too much into my post..was just passing on some pointer to her for her trip.

Posted by: SandiT on February 3, 2018

Thrilled for you meliahikes!!! I think you're quite right to use part of your winings to do something special with your family. Have fun!

Posted by: Sue A. on February 3, 2018

meliahikes, congratulation! And thank you for your inspiration! Enjoy your trip!
Continued good luck wishes to everyone!

Posted by: paula3kids on February 4, 2018

Congratulation meliahikes. You should also buy a lottery ticket with your luck. It seem you were chosen from over 6 million other ballots. Final count was 6,046,070 ballots for cash draw. The van is now at over 20 million.

Posted by: anonymous on February 4, 2018

anonymous, how do you know the total ballot count?? Where can we see that on the site?

Posted by: anonymous on February 4, 2018

Congratulations to you meliahikes !! It does take only that one entry to win, I personally won a few years ago 4K, with Nivea contest! So everyone just keep trying, one day it will happen for you, Good Luck!!!

Posted by: Lou on February 4, 2018

The Caravan ballots went up 20 million overnight Saturday.
Login and go to

Posted by: anonymous on February 5, 2018

thanks Lou for the encouragement!

Posted by: seadog on February 5, 2018

anonymous, your link ( does not work to see a "leaderboard". And I don't think going up 20 million is reasonable??

Posted by: anonymous on February 5, 2018

After they were questioned about it they took the leaderboard page down.

Posted by: anonymous on February 6, 2018

If you search for the find Giuseppe leaderboard you will find that the leaderboard stopped working towards the end of 2017. All you get if you go to the link is a 404 error. If you are seeing it it is probably an old catch that has not been deleted.

Posted by: GL on February 6, 2018

Yes you get a 404 error now, it was up yesterday before they were advised of the ballot change. The numbers were updating in 2018. Overnight Friday it jumped from 6 million for the van to 26 million.

Posted by: anonymous on February 6, 2018

Has anyone won a pizza lately? They are supposedly giving away 12 per day.

Posted by: Dinny on February 11, 2018

Get your cashola yet Meliahikes

Posted by: Seadog on February 12, 2018

cheque is getting cut on thursday then it gets courriered to me.. so still a week to wait. buti've got time :)

Posted by: meliahikes on February 13, 2018

So exciting meliahikes!!

Posted by: Syntifik on February 13, 2018

Despite the hope that meliahikes' win gives us all, my favourite time of the day is when it says that I have reached my daily limit on this one, lol.

Posted by: kimbilly on February 13, 2018

I thought all the prizes were drawn at the end, I would have assigned my ballots differently

Posted by: sarak on February 14, 2018

Oops, an error occurred! ??

Posted by: nancerelli on February 15, 2018

just doing some "for instance" thinking...if there are 26 million entries for the van and the average number of entries an individual has is 5,000 then that is 5200 individuals...1 in 5200 sounds more hopeful than 1 in 26 million :-)

Posted by: Christian12 on February 18, 2018

I, too, thought all the drawings were at the end of March. It's all listed in the rules & regs, so I should have read them more carefully. Got my fingers crossed for the van!! February 21st is soon!!

Posted by: ronnieg on February 18, 2018

Christian12 I don't think there is an average number of entries, there must be so many entrants who have no where near that number of entries...I wish I'd had time to enter this one daily but I didn't and therefore have very few entries, then there are all the people who came to contest late etc. Good luck to everyone, it would be awesome to win!

Posted by: luv2win on February 18, 2018

Hi luv2win, you are right that 5000 may not be the actual average number of entries that everyone has but I was just playing with the numbers to show that the odds are somewhat better than 1 in 26 million :-)
I was figuring 50 entries a day but I couldn't recall when the contest actually started and of course the extra entries for codes in the packages.

Posted by: Christian12 on February 19, 2018

I am over 5000 for myself and I didn't enter for 2 weeks after Christmas

Posted by: Darlowe on February 19, 2018

I have a few hundred although I started entering on day one, I only enter here and there as times allows and likely never the full number allowed per day again for that very reason so for myself, Christian12 the odds totally suck but glad they are better than 1 in 26 million for many others :) Good luck everyone!

Posted by: luv2win on February 19, 2018

Yes good luck to everyone for sure!
This has been a long contest as I recall from the rules it began Oct 1 with the van being drawn Feb 21 makes for about 140 days of entries.

Posted by: Christian12 on February 19, 2018

you also have to divide the total number by the number of people entering. Last time I checked the statistics on committed almost daily contesters the numbers in canada were under 10,000 people who do this and about 100,000 in the States. Not a lot of people actually do this day in and day out on a regular basis. You have as well the people who see the pizza box or pop box with a contest on it and enter it but would never do this if they had not seen the advertisement and had it in their hands. So your odds on this kind of a contest are the same pretty much as the odds on a contest that you enter once a day.

Posted by: Shirley54 on February 20, 2018

I am done with Giuseppe once the van is drawn.

Posted by: GG on February 20, 2018

Good luck

Posted by: Flo on February 20, 2018

Thanks Shirley54 for the info. I have always wondered how many of us there were. It's a great hobby, it's free and sometimes we win :) I recently won the Bring Home the Bread Contest from Co-op, $5,000.00 Gift card. That's my biggest win in all the years I've been entering. I was Over the Moon. Good Luck Everyone !!! It can happen :)

Posted by: SandyC on February 21, 2018

That is fabulous SandyC

Posted by: GG on February 21, 2018

I too am bidding my farewell once the van is drawn, the little pizza man and I must part our ways and move on.
It was fun in the beginning, but soon it was the same old routine, nothing changed. Day in and day out, dinner at home, the deli, grocery shopping, dinner at the same restaurant, never any change! He promised us a better life, we will see if he pulls through :p

Good luck everyone! And wonderful win, SandyC! Hearing these stories keep us involved in this wonderful community and help us hang onto hope when we feel it slipping! Haha. Happy for you!

Posted by: Syntifik on February 21, 2018

Congratulations SandyC on your fabulous win!

Posted by: lin13 on February 22, 2018

I am also not entering any more..fed up with this very long contest! sayonara and good luck to whoever wins the van!!! Sandy, congrats!!!

Posted by: Shosh1 on February 22, 2018

Congrats Sandy C! Such nice encouragement.

Posted by: SandiT on February 22, 2018

van is gone now, not me, big sigh lol. good luck everyone with the media player, the xbox and teh pizza for a year.

Posted by: Shirley54 on February 22, 2018

Hmmm my thousands of entries on the van disappeared part way through my game tonight. I now have 41 entries for the van.
Anyone else have that problem?

Posted by: anonymous on February 22, 2018

Anonymous: The contest for the van ended at 10 am on the 21 Feb.
Only 3 items left in the contest

Posted by: GL on February 23, 2018

anonymouus yes I had that problem. It happened right after the cash payout. I went from nearly 3000, to about 900. It did keep adding on after. The strange thing really was the grand total at the bottom, it did not add up anymore.

Posted by: PATZ on February 23, 2018

Grand total is all the entries that you have for all prizes

Posted by: GL on February 23, 2018

Van's gone. I'm out!! grrr.

Posted by: lnelson8 on February 23, 2018

Ryan D. from ON won the Van, nice win ya lucky dog.

Posted by: Douchetee on February 24, 2018

I guess he isn't part of our contestgirl community, very nice win.

Posted by: GG on February 24, 2018

could be a son or hubby of someone we know here GG, lots of people wont report a win this big in case they get "outed" to sponsors because they possibly entered for family members and would do so in future big contest giveaways. Unfortunately there are people that research big wins, stalk and try to figure out who is related to who in contesting and think it is their place in life to make these winners miserable. I have seen 2 facebook sites set up for people to put their heads together to figure out who is related to who and how to hassle or report them.

Posted by: anonymous on February 24, 2018

The next and final draw for the xbox is March 7, then there is also a March 7 draw for the social media player and pizza for a year as well and then the end of march is the final draw for the social media player and the pizza for a year.

Posted by: Shirley54 on February 24, 2018

Hope Ryan really enjoys his new van because I really could have used it! Want to visit family down east this summer and with a big dog, flying is not an option.

My 21 yr old car is gasping for life (wrecker bound) and the 14 yr old truck will likely struggle through the mountains. Plus, big dog means cramped quarters :-)

Oh well, guess I'll have to pin my hopes on the Home Hardware Corolla contest now and say "Ciao" to Giuseppe and this contest! May they both "Rest in Pizza"!

Posted by: anonymous on February 24, 2018

Congrats Ryan D whosoever you is

Posted by: seadog on February 24, 2018

I don't have a car at all! Hahaha.

One day....

I am considering ending my relationship with the little man Giuseppe. Im having my lawyer draw up the papers as we speak. Don;t think I can even go another 2 weeks.

Posted by: seadog on March 11, 2018

me 2. That little man has been living rent free in my home for 4 months now. hasnt paid me a dime of rent and I keep buying him pizza! You would think after 4 months he would at least bring me a pizza.

Posted by: Shirley54 on March 11, 2018

@anon haha. On some days perhaps, both have pros and cons (I have had one - it's been about ten years).

Biking in the rain for instance - sucks. :p

Posted by: Syntifik on March 11, 2018

seadog and shirley54, lol. I am considering getting a restraining order-he's everywhere I go-the deli, the grocery store, out to eat, even in my dining room. He's a creepy little stalker, and the end of the month can't come fast enough!

Posted by: kimbilly on March 13, 2018

it would be interesting to know where the winners were drawn from (the in-store stickers attached to product, or the on-line game play ballots earned). I bet ALL were from the purchased product entry method. Oh well, their right to distribute how they see fit.

Posted by: anonymous on March 13, 2018

I purchased about 8 instore products and applied them to money, van, and xbox. and I won pizza for a year with about 1100 entries

LOL re restraining order Kimbilly. Congrats Darlowe

Posted by: luv2win on March 14, 2018

i didn't use a single purchased entry and i won the 10k. only online entries.

Posted by: meliahikes on March 15, 2018

What a colossal waste of time.

Posted by: Jack on March 15, 2018

I love that you won without purchase @Meliahikes as that is often how I enter. I don't usually change my shopping habits for contest entry...well sometimes but not often.

Posted by: luv2win on March 15, 2018

Agree, luv2win, about meliahikes win-so often the stores don't carry the "specially marked" merchandise until after the contest is over anyways.

Posted by: kimbilly on March 15, 2018

I bought pizzas won nothing lol. I do as a rabid contester purchase pin entry on marked products to get entries in. I never ever do snail mail requests. I have won so much stuff and so many trips in the past 12 years that personally I have no problem buying a few products every week for those pin codes. And I rarely win from buying pin codes, it seems to be my personal curse. Those pop cases that have contests, always massive trips with meet and great rock stars, I win the music downloads, never those trips.What I absolutely hate is the marked contest products that the contest has already expired for. I bought cheese recently and the trip on it was already drawn a month ago. One prize, it was gone already. I think that companies that do these type of promotions should have secondary prizes that go on for a year or so after the main prize is gone so at least those purchases count for something.

Posted by: Shirley54 on March 15, 2018

oh it would seem I have generated some discussion, too bad I got booted from here you know who.
Thanks for the response (letting us know about purchase vs no-purchase entry) Darlowe and meliahikes.
Hey meliahikes, what ya gonna do with the big win...invest (boring) or spending spree!!
