Mars Win! Win! promotion
Have you spotted the new Mars promo in store yet? The main 2Chances2Win instant win doesn’t start until 10 October 2022, and runs until 18 December 2022, but if you’ve already bought a pack, you can enter early as there’s a £500 prize to be won in a prize draw from all entries received before 9 October.
Instant win prizes
There are 22,050 prizes to be won instantly:
- 50 x £1,000
- 2,000 x Snickers footballs
- 20,000 free packs of Mars, Revels, M&M’s, Minstrels, Maltesers, Twix, Ripple, Snickers, Starburst or Skittles (supplied as a printable coupon)
Football Experience prize draw
Every entry also gets a second chance to win, because it goes into the grand prize draw to win a Football Experience prize for 4 people, including a Wembley Stadium tour, one night’s stay in a 4* hotel (two twin / double rooms), dinner at a London restaurant, return rail travel to and from Wembley, and e-Gift vouchers for 4 Football Shirts.
How to enter the early prize draw
You can enter the early draw between 12 September 2022 and 9 October 2022. The extra £500 early prize isn’t mentioned on the promotional packaging, but because packs are in the shops early, Mars have added it to the online T&Cs. It’s unclear whether you can enter the early draw daily, but you may not consider it worth the effort with just one prize to be won!
How to enter the instant win
Remember you can’t enter until 10 October…
- Buy a flashed ‘Win! Win!’ pack of Mars, Revels, M&Ms, Minstrels, Maltesers, Revels, Twix, Ripple, Snickers, Starburst or Skittles – and keep hold of the packet!
- Go to www.2chances2win.co.uk
- Choose your country and enter your date of birth
- Enter the specified 4 digits of the barcode from your pack
Although it says ‘one entry per person per day’ in T&Cs, the packets actually say ‘one entry per person per household per day’ – I would assume online T&Cs are the most recent. There’s no limit to the number of prizes one person can win.
For this promotion I think it’s absolutely fine to enter daily using the same barcode. If you win one of the £1,000 prizes you will need to send off your promotional pack to a FREEPOST address to validate your win.
Free pack winners will receive an email with a unique link to a downloadable personalised free product coupon which can be redeemed against a pack from the list of products above (up to a maximum value of £1). I’m assuming quite a few shops will refuse these coupons! In previous years I’ve had most success with using Tesco and Co-op self-checkouts, where I ask for assistance and the staff manually take the £1 off my bill.
If you’re too late for the main instant win promotion, entries received between 19 December 2022 and 30 April 2023 go into a late entry prize draw with one prize of £500.
About the winning moments format
There are 22,052 winning moments in total – that’s one every 5 minutes or so for 70 days – and if you’re the first person to enter after one of these random winning moments, you’ll win a prize. This means that you can choose your entry time for the best chance of winning – overnight less people will be taking part, for example you’ll have a higher chance of hitting a winning moment between 1am and 6am. To find out more about the winning moments format, read my blog post What is a winning moment promotion?
2chances2win is open to UK residents aged 18 years and over. Residents of Northern Ireland can enter the promotion without purchasing a pack by sending their name, address and email address to 2chances2win NPN, PO Box 1079, Hemel Hempstead, HP1 1GY between 12 September 2022 and 23 April 2023. They will be sent a code to enter.
