    Hey guys, this is my first topic posted on your website, so bear with me.
    How many of you guys play the Mt. Dew Transformers contest.
    I've been playing since day 1, trying to get the Pepsi Prime, and to my surprise found three of them on my doorstep.
    A first for me.
    One to open, one to display, and one for Ebay.:D

    I've been playing for about a week now, entering one code a day,(i don't drink a lot of Pepsi or Dew). I doubt i'll win a Prime, though it won't stop me from trying.

    I was shocked, I didn't recieve an email or anything, just three boxes on my front porch.
    I only entered about twice a day, I usually only get a Diet Mt. Dew when I work the 5:00am shift at the gym, of course I did scrounge alot of caps from co-workers.

    Damn, three? I would be happy just to get the one. Then again, I haven't been playing for that prize very much. I would much rather win that trip to Japan.:D

    Cool. I was thinking that they would send you an email if you won anything, lol. So for all I know, I could have won at least one of them by now.

    Played around 10 times. But I stopped for 3 reasons:

    1. I NEVER win anything
    2. $1.25 for each bottle is a complete rip-off. (WM soda is only 25 cents)
    3. Some people will win 3 of these while others will win 0. I don't roll that way!

    I play all the time.
    I never win.

    So, they just send you the prizes?
    No notification or anything like that?

    Well crap, I thought I was alone in my luck of three.
    On the plus side regarding those who have entered 200+ codes, as of today I've entered only 65.
    Most of those, as I said before I scavanged off of co-workers, not to mentioned some of the buy 1 get 1 caps I turned in.
    I estimate that I've spent about $25-$30 (the one I've got on Ebay's up to $33), but that's still a hell of a lot to spend on pop.

    I entered 7 codes in the first week. 6 for Prime, 1 for the ultimate gaming package. After that, I just started hording them up to drop a bunch in on one day. Last week a lone Pepsi Prime was on my doorstep. Now I think I'll drop my 160+ caps on the ultimate gaming package. Kinda hoping the number of daily entries will drop as the yellow caps are getting harder to find around here.

    Look on the shoulder of any rural highway and you will see free codes-a-plenty just laying around, chucked out of car windows by lazy-ass litter bugs.

    I've spent a few free hours picking them up. Sure, it’s kind of disgusting sometimes, but that's what they made latex gloves and zip-lock bags for!

    If anyone does this, I recommend scouting out an area in the car first and then going back on foot, or on a bike. Constantly pulling off in a car can be dangerous.

    You do realize that truckers pee in bottles and then toss them out? So some of those Dew bottles are NOT full of Mt. Dew. That's why I don't pick them up.
