Win a Mini with Cadbury Mini Eggs!

I know, I know. The Christmas decorations are still up, and I’m already telling you about Easter promotions. But this is definitely one you don’t want to miss – the chance to win a brand new car in this easy Mini Eggs text prize draw at the Co-op. This is the third time Cadbury have launched this promotion on Boxing Day – maybe 2022 will be your lucky year!

The Prize

One winner will receive a Mini Cooper car, worth up to £18,000!

How to enter

  • Pop into your local Co-op store and buy a pack of Cadbury Mini Eggs. The prize draw is not advertised on the packets but you may see the promotional stand in store.
  • Text MINI plus the last 4 digits of the barcode plus your name and postcode to 85077* (cost is your standard network rate, usually about 15p) – the barcode is not unique, and will be the same on every same-size packet of Mini Eggs regardless of where you buy them
  • Keep your receipt safe – you’ll need it if you win!
  • You can enter once per day – T&Cs don’t mention needing a new receipt for each entry so I would suggest buying just one bag and making multiple entries is OK, but keep an eye on your phone bill!

*as well as 85077, you can also text your entry to 87066, or 85199. The reason promoters sometimes do this is to see how successful the different advertising methods are! They usually relate to an in store cardboard display, an on-screen advert on the tills and an ad in the Co-op magazine.

Closing date isn’t until the 17 April 2022, the prize draw is open to UK residents aged 18+ with a full driving licence, and there’s a no purchase necessary route for NI residents.

    The text worked for me. I have to make sure my network settings allow these types of messages though.
    Just one snag – the assistant in the Co-op didn’t give me my receipt, so I’ll have to buy another bag of mini eggs…

    It worked fine for me. Text MINI and add the last 4 digits of the barcode onto the word. I had confirmation it was entered.

    I would suggest not wasting your time on the Cadbury’s mini egg one – it just appears to be a scam. The text number doesn’t work and none of the published help line numbers online get answered either. Shameful behaviour by Cadbury’s frankly. Complete waste of customers’ time and money.

      What network are you on Sarah? Some networks don’t allow text messages to any shortcode numbers, including Plusnet, Lycamobile and Lebara. On other networks, there may be a restriction in place that doesn’t allow you to text certain shortcodes. I can assure you it’s not a scam.
