No purchase necessary however a redemption code is required
You find the code on your Kinder Chocolate T4, T8, /16 and multipacks. For Kinder Surprise, you find a code inside the T3 pack. A code can be used only once, for more info check the terms of use

I don t see a NPN code request method

Posted by: anonymous on August 31, 2018

I entered 12345 as the redemption code [or whatever it is] and it worked.

Posted by: wilson on August 31, 2018

Contest starts tomorrow

Posted by: Shosh1 on August 31, 2018

Ah, that's why it accepted 12345 and then took me to a bewildering page. Cunning.

Posted by: wilson on August 31, 2018

Hey good try at least Wilson

Posted by: mosquito on August 31, 2018

I also entered 12345 and it worked and said I won some headphones ($2.50) good luck all

Posted by: MaryA on August 31, 2018

I'm a little confused... the rules say you can enter without purchase but the form says all fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory. They don't give a method to request a redemption code...

Posted by: Marcus75 on August 31, 2018

If you click on the blue ! mark beside the Redemption Code space, it shows that you can find a Redemption Code on the Kinder chocolate T4, T8/16 & multi packs for Kindersurprise T3 pack. It also shows that the code can only be used once.

Posted by: Sodacrackers on August 31, 2018

I typed 'none' and it was accepted

Posted by: Platform on September 1, 2018

Wish there was a way to contact them so we can be sure our entry counts...

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 1, 2018

Probably a stupid question, but do you have to enter a child as someone you are "wishing" for. I don't get that part.

Posted by: kadubb on September 1, 2018

I am wondering if it is a contest entry for the trip.

Posted by: Flo on September 1, 2018

Do you enter for one trip each day or can you enter for all each day?

Posted by: abluesgirl on September 1, 2018

Each "wish" tab is a trip... check out the details in the rules, as they vary considerably. Some are 4 nights, some are 9, some give you spending money or resort credits, some give you car rentals or extra excursions. I'm not sure if you can only win what you picked when you enter, that wasn't clear from the rules.

Posted by: sphinx69 on September 1, 2018

I tried entering"none" for the redemption code and it didn't work, but 12345 did. Still, it's a little unsettling to feel like I could be wasting my time with this every day and not qualify. I've sent them an email asking about the NPN option and maybe could they fix the form/rules? Will update if they actually get back to me.

Posted by: sphinx69 on September 1, 2018

Good idea, sphinx69. Thank you.

Posted by: wilson on September 2, 2018

Says I won 1 kinder headphones!

Posted by: Antiquer on September 2, 2018

Neat, Antiquer

Posted by: wilson on September 2, 2018

Thanks Sphinx, I couldn't find an email to contact!

And congrats Antiquer!!

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 2, 2018

Won headphones too!

Posted by: Ash12 on September 2, 2018

Congrats Ash!

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 3, 2018

Congrats on the wins so far:-)
Thanks sphinx69 for reaching out to the company for clarification. Hope they respond. I love the generous prize opportunities for this contest. 3000 prizes! And a chance for a trip Long contest though.
Kadubb, I do enter a child's name as part of my entry/ wish and I give a reason like 'she loves princess stories so visiting a castle would be awesome'.
Also I visited local walmart and a couple of grocery stores this weekend and could not find any specially marked kinder packages (other than older kinder packages for winning a party). Has anyone found a package with a code? I have also been using 12345 to enter.
I have not downloaded the app either. Has anyone else?
Sorry I am full of wonder today.
Good luck everyone!


Posted by: paula3kids on September 3, 2018

Hi everyone!a

very interesting..love all your comments and I must Say I supposedly won headphones too with that number. .. I will read your new posts again tomorrow..thanks.



Posted by: maddmom on September 3, 2018

Oh wow, I just noticed the end date of this contest now. It goes on a real long time

Posted by: mosquito on September 3, 2018

Oh and I received an email from kinder for every wish/ entry so far.
Good luck folks!

Posted by: paula3kids on September 3, 2018

Thanks for all the info

Posted by: mc2016 on September 4, 2018

I called Ferrero/Kinder to point out the contradiction re redemption code. He said you can get the code from other people. I didn't remember to ask ... but if it can only be used once ...

Posted by: Suze on September 4, 2018

@ Suze, what number did you call? I was unable to find a useful one...
Also, I got an email back from the Canadian Ferrero, and the woman said "We regret to inform you that we currently have no promotions going on at this time. Our Kinder Surprise them Back and Kinder Bueno Bucket list contests ended on July 31st, 2018."
So I've emailed her back and am waiting to see if it's the US faction I should be contacting. There's really not much transparency for this one.

Posted by: sphinx69 on September 4, 2018

Sphinx69 That's weird that they would say that because this is definitely a Canadian contest not a US one. Perhaps you could send them back the link to the contest and then see what they say? What email did you use? I will email them as well

Posted by: crobich on September 4, 2018

They have changed it. It no longer asks for UPC or the age of the person you are wishing for.

Nice to see them respond so quickly. Hooray Ferrero

Posted by: kadubb on September 5, 2018

Well done.

Posted by: wilson on September 5, 2018

Thanks all!

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 5, 2018

Update... after being told they didn't have any such contest going, I emailed the lady Again with a link to the contest and received this response " Thank you for your patience. The site has been updated and you should now be able to enter without issue. Please let us know if you have any other concerns. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you.". And I see from the comments that it has, in fact, been fixed. Great news, though I do wonder at the initial response? Ah well.... if it works now then all good.


Posted by: sphinx69 on September 5, 2018

I won earbuds! Cute:-) Thanks for all the updates folks!
But most importantly I just noticed the new form does not have a field on the entry form for town/city! Make sure you type that in somewhere. I typed my town in the same field as the street. You need a correct mailing address as those secondary prizes, like earbuds, will be mailed directly to that address (onus on us to put address in correctly according to rules. ) Good luck!

Posted by: paula3kids on September 6, 2018

I just won a Kinder Surprise speaker. :)

Posted by: amanda p. on September 7, 2018

@paula3kids... I don't think you need to include the city so long as there's a postal code. They are unique to the province, then the local sorting station (hence, the city).

Posted by: sphinx69 on September 7, 2018

Sphinx69, you have more faith in our postal system than others do! :-) Continued good luck!

Posted by: paula3kids on September 7, 2018

It didnt ask me for a redeption code

Posted by: Alysha M on September 8, 2018

It doesn't ask you for a redemption code anymore because they fixed it, Alysha M (likely due to the complaints/questions they've received). No purchase necessary means just that - and they didn't offer an alternative mail-in entry, as companies sometimes do.

Posted by: sphinx69 on September 9, 2018

@paula3kids, no, I really don't. But the postal code is literally all the information anyone needs to deliver your mail, short of the street address. I believe most of the mail is sorted electronically using the postal code anyways, so it's not as though anyone is really looking at it until the local carrier gets a hold of it. I never get mail destined for another city or country, it's almost always one or two streets over (since that's the only mail they have in their bag). People are fallible, but I still get the mail delivered to my door so I can't really complain.

Posted by: sphinx69 on September 9, 2018

is this a 24 hour entry? anyone getting same type of message

Posted by: anonymous on September 12, 2018

24 hr entry?? error message:
The user has exceeded the submission limit for the configured period!

Posted by: anonymous on September 12, 2018

It worked OK for me this morning. I use Google Chrome on a MacBook Pro

Posted by: wilson on September 12, 2018

I just got that same error message as well

Posted by: Tam on September 12, 2018

I got that message earlier today but just entered now and it went through - maybe they changed it to 24hrs.

Posted by: MaryA on September 12, 2018

Won some speakers! But didn't get any confirmation or anything...has anyone who's won received an email or something?

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 13, 2018

I tried submitting today and this is what I got: "The user has exceeded the submission limit for the configured period!"

Anyone else got same?

Posted by: Shosh1 on September 13, 2018

yes I've been getting that for 2 days

Posted by: Francesg on September 13, 2018

I did not get that today

Posted by: Shosh1 on September 14, 2018

I got that message as well!

Posted by: lin13 on September 14, 2018

I got the message "Sorry. On black list." No reason for that to be the case.

Posted by: clutterqueen1 on September 14, 2018

Wonderwhatif, I guess we have to patiently wait for the mail for secondary prizes. It says in rules that it will be mailed to address on your form about 7 weeks from win date. Congrats on the win!

Posted by: paula3kids on September 14, 2018

Regarding blacklist I could not find any limit in the rules but they do reference an entry limit...."A person is ineligible to be declared the winner of any further Prize if he or she (1) has reached the limit for the given Prize type, as set out in this Rule; or (2) resides in a household where all individuals residing in the household, collectively (including the entrant), have reached the applicable Prize limit as described in this Rule"
Interesting but not clear.

Posted by: paula3kids on September 14, 2018

Paula3kids, I haven't won any prize, unless I somehow missed it.

Posted by: clutterqueen1 on September 14, 2018

[Just getting out of the conversation]

Posted by: wilson on September 15, 2018

HAS ANYONE GOTTEN THIS ERROR MESSAGE:
The user has exceeded the submission limit for the configured period!
what does it mean that I entered or tried too many times to enter?

Posted by: anonymous on September 15, 2018

Just received "The user has exceeded the submission limit for the configured period!"
also

Posted by: gardener on September 15, 2018

Thanks Paula3kids!

everybody else, I haven't had any error messages.

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 16, 2018

Just got the submission period error. Last night I did it really late at like 5pm and tonight it's 5am when I'm doing it, maybe it's when you haven't left enough time between entries.

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 18, 2018

Seems to be a new issue now, it says "Skill question field has not been filled out" or something to that extent...but there is no skill question in the form...

Posted by: goshogun on September 21, 2018

6 + 12 (2 x 3) * = what..google doesn't give me an answer

Posted by: Theresa1965 on September 21, 2018

It's 6+12-(2x3)= super easy. You can do it!

Posted by: anonymous on September 21, 2018

Won a pair of headphones!!!!

The answer is 12.

Basic math can be really hard. I have a brain problem and I really struggle even though I know it's simple.

Posted by: wonderwhatif on September 23, 2018

Congrats, wonderwhatif!

Is anyone else getting a message that they've exceeded the maximum entries?

Posted by: Astrid on September 24, 2018

I also won earphones !


Posted by: Angela on September 26, 2018

Yes I have not been able to enter for 3 days

Posted by: Alysha M on September 26, 2018

Posted by: typhoon on September 27, 2018

Posted by: anonymous on September 29, 2018

I have just won my second pair of earbuds. Has anyone actually received theirs yet? I won the first pair about a month ago.

Posted by: jmclou01 on September 29, 2018

Won a set of earbuds :o)

Posted by: willbear on October 1, 2018

Will only let you enter so many times...the last few days it says I have entered the number of times I am allowed.

Posted by: Theresa1965 on October 3, 2018

FYI - I won a set of ear buds when it first started and just received a email to answer the STQ. It seems they are way behind in giving out the prizes....

Posted by: MaryA on October 3, 2018

I just won a secondary price. No indication of it's ear buds or the speaker. How did you know that you won ear buds? Thanks.

Posted by: marmalade on October 3, 2018

Just won headphones

Posted by: Flower on October 4, 2018

might be a 24 hour sometimes lets me enter sometimes not.

Posted by: Jetta on October 7, 2018

The form doesn't always work for me either, but I don't think it's a 24hr contest. Probably just a problem on their end.

Posted by: Astrid on October 10, 2018

won;t take my address..yesterday or today

Posted by: Theresa1965 on October 16, 2018

Same Theresa... might be a bug

Posted by: Marcus75 on October 16, 2018

won't take my address either

Posted by: lizmur on October 18, 2018

Took my address when I omitted the dash.

Posted by: SandiT on October 19, 2018

just verifying: do you all get stq = 12 (ie 6+12-6)?

Posted by: anonymous on October 23, 2018

I haven t been allowed to enter. Keep saying I ve exceeded the allowed entries. ?

Posted by: anonymous on October 29, 2018

Posted by: Jetta on November 12, 2018

I had no notice that it was coming. just appeared in the mail.

Posted by: lnelson8 on November 14, 2018

geesch, hope I don't win another secondary prize cuz 2 is the limit and I'm hoping for the Germany trip ;)
There is a limit of one (1) Grand Prize and one (1) Secondary Prize per person and one (1) Grand Prize and one (1) Secondary Prize per person per household (see Rule 3 below for definition of Grand Prize and Secondary Prizes) and a combined total limit of two (2) Prizes per person. A person is ineligible to be declared the winner of any further Prize if he or she (1) has reached the limit for the given Prize type, as set out in this Rule; or

Posted by: lnelson8 on November 14, 2018

Got this message today: The user has exceeded the submission limit for the configured period!

Posted by: warrior1 on November 15, 2018

all you secondary prize winners (headphones and speaker)...how do you do it? and some people winning multiple times...wow...luck or what?

Posted by: anonymous on November 21, 2018

Anon - Just entering every day when it lets you (think it has to be at least 24 hours between).

It really is just your luck. I've entered multiple daily contests every day for the whole time and won nothing. There's so many ppl entering it's totally random.

Posted by: wonderwhatif on November 21, 2018

thanks wonderwhatif. There's so many prizes for this one...maybe soon.
So people are allowed to win more than once???

Posted by: anonymous on November 22, 2018

Just won a speaker!

Posted by: Astrid on November 23, 2018

@Anon: Yes you can win the smaller prizes more than once. But according to lnelson it seems you cannot win again if you win 2 and are ineligible for the big prize :/

Posted by: wonderwhatif on November 25, 2018

Winning 2 secondary prizes does not make you ineligible for the grand prize. Look at the last line in this paragraph:

There is a limit of one (1) Grand Prize per person (see Rule 3 below for definition of Grand Prize). There is a limit of one (1) Secondary Prize per person per day (see Rules 3 below for definition of Secondary Prizes). A person is ineligible to be declared the winner of any further Prize if he or she has reached the limit for the given Prize type, as set out in this Rule. . For greater certainy, a winner of a Secondary Prize is still eligible to win the Grand Prize.

Posted by: Astrid on November 27, 2018

Well, that's a relief, thanks Astrid. I have a brain condition and it's difficult for me to read large blocks of text, so I often rely on what others say. Thanks for clearing it up!

Posted by: wonderwhatif on November 27, 2018

No problem!

Posted by: Astrid on November 28, 2018

I have finally received the earbuds. Good luck folks!

Posted by: paula3kids on November 29, 2018

Got my earbuds today! Was starting to think I was never going to get them.

Posted by: willbear on November 29, 2018

First time entering and it said I won Kinder Headphones - GG

Posted by: anonymous on December 5, 2018

won the speaker yesterday! (earbuds previously)

Anyone receive in one as of yet from an earlier win?

Posted by: all3y3zonm3 on December 5, 2018

do they send a confirmation email if you win the earphones?

Posted by: givemefreestuff on December 10, 2018

just received my earphones, won on the first couple of days of the contest so it does take a long time.

Posted by: MaryA on December 10, 2018

anyone having an issue with the timing of entry today appears their clock is 4 minutes slow

Posted by: anonymous on December 14, 2018

rec'd a pair of earphones in the mail yesterday. I don't recall getting notified so it was a pleasant surprise

Posted by: Flower on December 21, 2018

Kinder is owned by Ferrero Rocher chocolates, they also own Nutella. Explains the contests which often look very similar. Very generous company. I won a 6,000 childrens playhouse 10 years ago on a Nutella contest, at that time you needed the redemption code from inside a chocolate bar or had to send in a 50 word essay by mail. They made me provide the actual chocolate bar wrapper with the redemption code to receive my prize. Always be aware that with Kinder, Nutella and Ferrero Rocher if they run a contest and the purchase entry needs a code from a product to make sure you have the wrapper to prove your win.


Posted by: Shirley54 on January 6, 2019

I won a pair of earbuds last week & a speaker this evening.
