another ripoff soda pop contest


Dr. Pepper Armchair quarterback challenge states you could win up to $1 Million plus 1 of 100 Jeep Wranglers. However to enter, you have to hand print your name, address, phone # and age on a 3″x5″ card and mail it!

MAIL IT? ppph, yeah right. Looks like Dr. Pepper doesn’t a large number of people to enter.

it discourages people from entering multiple times.

Once in my life I decided I was going to win a mail-in contest. I had it all figured out. I would send 100 entries [this was a hundred years ago when stamps were a dime”> mailed from different locations on different days so that all of my entries wouldn’t arrive at the same time and end up together in a clump at the bottom of just one of the drawing bins. It actually worked and I won $5,000 in college tuition.

YES.. And I love how they say that the winning code for the jeep wrangler will also be posted on their website, but instead you get all the info on the spiderman crap. Good grief!!!!

I have looked on the drpepper.com homepage and there is no winning number posted, and no way to contact them. This is a ripoff!!!!!!

There were two variations of this contest that existed in different parts of the country.

The winning codes are:

KNC9724 (Jeep Wrangler; under-the-cap)

XTJ4272 (Dodge Durango; behind-the-label)

(These were obtained from the DrPepper.com website, December 10, 2002 at 1:40 AM, after ~15 minutes of poking around.)

35-year dp drinker totally disappointed. contest appear to be phony. spent 30-min trying to see if code was a winner with no success. why can’t you just keep it simple, & let consumers know from product packaging if they have won. appears you only want consumers to go to web site for everything else except what they are trying to see. looks like all your negative comments are from 2002. i’m sure you won’t post this one. no more dp for me.
