Win up to £5,000 in the One Stop Christmas game!
Eddy the elf and his friends are hiding in One Stop stores again this Christmas! Find them using the Eddy’s Christmas Heroes app before 29 December 2020, and you could win £5,000 cash, £1,000 cash or thousands of chocolate treats.
A promotion where you have to go in store during a lockdown isn’t the best idea – but having said that, entry numbers will be low as a result. So if you do live near a One Stop, it’s worth popping in for your essentials. My local One Stop is a Post Office too, so I’m in there regularly!
Update on December 6th: the app has now been changed so we can all play at home instead of at the shops!
- 8 x £1,000 (one prize given away in a prize draw every week until 30 December – except for the week of 16 – 22 December when there will be 5 extra £1,000 prizes!)
- 1 x £5,000 main prize (given away in a grand prize draw from all entries)
Instant win prizes
- 2,000 x Maltesers Reindeer
- 500 x 240g box of Celebrations
How to play the One Stop Christmas game
- Download Eddy’s Christmas Heroes for your Apple or Android device
- Register your name and email address on the app, and complete the verification process via email
- Create a strong password to log in (if it’s not strong enough, it will be rejected!)
- Allow the app access to your location
- (updated with instructions for play at home version 6.12.2020) Tap Find an Elf, then move your phone around until you spot an elf on the screen. This doesn’t work on some phones – so tap the screen anyway even if you don’t see any elf! Eventually you should get a message to say you’ve found an elf.
Play in store version
- Go to your nearest One Stop store (check the store finder here) and look for the markers in store. See example of the small shelf signs below – there should also be a large display in store!
- When you find a marker, open the app and tap ‘In Store’. Scan the elf silhouette then move your phone around, and wait for a virtual elf to appear on the screen.
- Tap the elf! If it’s a hero elf, you will win an instant prize of either a Malteser Reindeer or box of Celebrations – tap Got It and a barcode will display on screen for you to claim your prize
- If you find the weekly elf you’ll get an entry into the £1,000 prize draw
- Check the Rewards/Prizes tab to see your prizes – barcodes will be accessible until 30 December 2020
- Play as often as you like
To redeem an instant win prize, the checkout staff should scan the Reindeer or Celebrations, and then scan the barcode from your screen (if this doesn’t work, they can type it in as if it was a product code). It’s fine to win and claim both instant chocolate prizes on the same day.
The weekly draws end on a Tuesday, with the final closing date 29 December 2020, and cash prize draw winners will be contacted by email.
