Too bad they decided to put the codes on the outside of the package. Last time I went to buy a similar item for a contest someone took all the stickers off. Went to three different stores.

Sent two letters and no codes yet!

@pansy Yep same here. I emailed Tuesday and haven't gotten anything back.

Ok so it comes thru the mail

Posted by: tomgirl on May 14, 2019

Just received my code via Canada Post regular mail

Posted by: jmclou01 on May 14, 2019

Yes, I got my code in the mail yesterday too.

Posted by: CatAteMyDogma on May 15, 2019

I got one in the mail today. Entered it. Never saw anything about the instant win part.

Posted by: fossie on May 15, 2019

What a waste of money - can't they just hit reply with the code. I wish I had their money in advertising.

Posted by: Lisa1954 on May 17, 2019

I have a couple codes from products I bought and it comes up 'code invalid' when I enter. Anyone else having this issue?

Posted by: mmcgregor on May 17, 2019

I had the same thing happen with the code I received in the mail. I've emailed to ask for a replacement.

Posted by: sandym on May 18, 2019

Any one get an answer yet about invalid codes from purchased products? Mine aren't working either

Sent many emails and even tell them that I do not receive replies. We'll wait - it's all in the administration of their marketing. POOR.

Posted by: Lisa1954 on May 26, 2019

I m starting to think they will only send one code per person

Posted by: Sande on May 27, 2019

I sent a message to them on Facebook and they sent a reply saying they saw my initial e-mail and are "working on it". In terms of getting more entries, I got 4 in one envelope the first 4 requests I made but since then, nothing even though I have sent a bunch of requests.

Posted by: goshogun on May 28, 2019

I found out why some product codes aren't working. Apparently, there are still TONS of codes out there from previous years in products and these won't work for the current contest. Bit misleading, since they don't show the year their valid for on the front of the packaging so by the time you purchase it, open and check, it's already too late. That sucks.

Posted by: goshogun on May 31, 2019

got this message: Unfortunately, this PIN code is from the 2017 contest, therefore it is not valid for this year s contest. We are sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused!

Posted by: mmcgregor on May 31, 2019

Anyone get any codes lately?

Posted by: slad134 on June 20, 2019

I haven't gotten any lately

Posted by: Deb11 on June 20, 2019

All my requests are coming back as rejected for not following the guidelines but I'm not sure why

Posted by: goshogun on June 21, 2019

me too - I asked in a reply - highlight the rules we must follow since I reveived a code by mail already and I followed the guidelines. Maybe they wants some kind of a review of more than just one or two products.

The link for this contest doesn't work anymore. It should be: http://capromos.3m.com/UncoverTheSecret/index.html

Posted by: kazdot on June 30, 2019

Not sure what they really want - false reviews on products I did not use yet or just reviews on different products without reviews just a few words on how wonderful 3M is. I am not getting any codes either. It would be nice if they just reply with pin codes instead of throwing money by mail. EMAIL is fine.
