Merry Biscuits Grotto promotion

Are you feeling festive yet? Well this Christmas promotion from McVitie’s and Jacob’s should get you in the mood! There are thousands of prizes to be won, plus a grand prize of a family trip to Lapland.

You’ll need to buy a ‘Merry Biscuits’ product and enter your code at – you’ll find out instantly if you’ve won a Family Day Out voucher, and every entry will also go into the grand prize draw for the Lapland holiday in March!

Merry Biscuits Grotto

How to enter

  • Buy a promotional product featuring the Christmas flash: McVitie’s Victoria & Family Circle biscuits, Jacob’s Biscuits for Cheese, and the Christmas tubs of Festive Bites, Mini Cheddars, Twiglets, Cheeselets and Cracker Crisps – they mainly seem to be on the seasonal aisle of larger supermarkets at the moment
  • Find your promotion code – this is a 4 digit number followed by a time (see below)
  • Go to
  • Enter your code, plus your name, email and date of birth
  • You’ll find out instantly if you’ve won a Family Day Out voucher!

Watch my YouTube guide to entering…

You can enter only once per email address per day and a maximum of ten times per email address during the whole promotional period!

Winners will be asked to cut out the code from the winning pack and post to a Freepost address, along with the accompanying till receipt in order to claim their prize (apart from the larger plastic tubs of Jacob’s biscuits, where you’ll need to take a photo of the code). This is because the codes are NOT unique – they can be duplicated on different packs, so can be entered multiple times. If a winner has entered the same code multiple times, they may be asked to post off all their codes and receipts to prove they bought several packs, so keep hold of everything!

The instant win promotion ends on 31st January 2018, and the Lapland prize draw closes on 31st March 2018.

The prizes

  • Grand prize – A family holiday to Lapland (2 adults and 2 children up to 12) including economy flights from London, 5-7 nights in 4-5 star accommodation, breakfast and dinner, transfers, activities, spending money and taxes
  • 1,000 Family Activity Vouchers – choice of a day out from a wide selection of options including entry to animal parks, pottery painting, paintballing, crazy golf, city tours and many more (winners in ROI will receive €40 worth of Great Days Out vouchers)

The promotion is open to residents of the UK, IOM or the Channel Islands, aged 18 or older. Northern Ireland residents can enter via a ‘No Purchase Necessary’ route (see FAQs). Full promotion T&Cs are here and any questions can be emailed to

My tips

The products are hard to find at the moment (try Tesco Extra), so stock up and enter in the next couple of months rather than waiting until closer to Christmas when lots of people will be buying them!

This is a 24 hour winning moments promotion – so the first entry after a randomly chosen ‘winning moment’ will win a Family Day Out voucher. There will be approximately 6 winning moments each day – so you may do better entering overnight or early hours of the morning!

Good luck – hope this comp gets you in the mood for Christmas!
