Any fellow canadians out there tried the 'Be first to play' contest ? Well if your a little clever and checked out the contest rules youd notice you can get "No Purchase Nessesary" key codes by filling out a survey (upto 1 key per hour).

Any of you who have tried that? Any that have actually won ?

The most you can do at any time is 24 codes/draw (since your limited to 1 free code per hour, and they expire after 24 hours). Ive tried it a few times, and no luck. With odds of 1/2000 (at night time) and 24 codes, it should be more like 1/200 odds.

Just wondering if anyone else has come across the same, and feels the system is being biased against NPN keys. No reply yet from them (email). So Im looking for other user feedback.

I won October 5th @ 12:00 am, first in Saskatchewan by the way, it was my 44th NPN request. My strategy was to enter after I got a pin. Best odds is if you are in every draw. Dumping works but I know guys that have around 1500 NPN requests and still have no luck. Its just random

Hey I won oct 6 for the 8-9 am slot. I used NPN pins so I do not believe its biased. I won that hour with only 1 pin. Congratulations codeman_6t9 I was only the first in my town not the province, but I still feel special. Hey don't you hate that funky smell in the party in a box? I've been trying to air mine out but it still smells a bit lol.

The party in a box is sitting in my spare bedroom with the empty box of my TV, the window is open and the smell has almost disappered. It was brutual but should hopefully do the trick for carrying it to school a few days before it comes out. The boys want to see it on a 90inch projection screen. Should be a fun afternoon at college.

Good to hear the demon smell can be beaten. I would also love to hook it up to the projectors at school but I doubt they will let me.

most of the guys at rfd have 20+ email accounts.. some are even dumping 1000's of codes per hour..

rfd also dominated the ipod contest exploiting the npn system.

They should have made this contest "purchase necessary", there would be 6 entries per draw.

Nope. Its hidden in the rules and regulations about half way down the page where it says No Purchase Nessecary. Theres a spot right there that says This Link its underlined. Its quite obvious that they buried that part pretty well but its definetly there.
