I entered this one-time sweeps on September 23.  Today I received the following email from Prize Fulfillment Services:

Now that you've entered, we will send you the exclusive cheat code you need
to Unlock the adidas Underground on or after October 16, 2006. You will be among
the first to receive a code to unlock the adidas Underground. Be sure to use it
when you play NBA 2007 Live.

See you on the court,
Adidas


Be sure to visit http://adidas.com/basketball


Prize Fulfillment Services
adidas@eprizepromotions.com

What does this mean?  Ive read the rules and there is no indication of further steps to complete entry into this sweeps.

Thanks for any insight.

Pat

This is interesting... I have never seen anything like this from ePrize Prize Fullfillment. There are only 6 prizes but nothing in the rules about prize fullfillment prior to the end date.

My feeling is you won. Since the all the prizes are small in value (under $600 in value), no affy is requested by ePrize.

Let's see if anything shows up on your door step soon.

Congrats,

Mr. Sweepy

Mr Sweepy, Thanks.

Whats wierd is the sweeps doesnt end until October 31, and the rules state:

Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or around November 1, 2006.

 

We shall see.

I got that same message but I didn't save the e-mail.  I thought it was odd for a one-time sweep.  We'll see!

There is something else to think about...  I see this maybe once a year and a sponsor or adminstrator will forget to put all of the prizes in a sweepstakes rules.  This is a possibility. Normally ePrize doesn't run many sweeps with only a few prizes. They might be adding some more prizes but didn't say what.

For both of you to receive the same message is strange but in a good way I think.

Let me know how this turns out.

Mr. Sweepy

If you are into video games a cheat code unlock additional games or playing areas within the game or gives you an advantage such as bonus points or special tools or unlimited "lifes"  etc all  for your increase gaming pleasures.

So you will still have to purchase the video game that they are "hyping" and the system (x-box, playstation, game-cube)

Cheat codes are found quickly on the web once the game is released.

There was a way to opt out on getting this cheat code via e-mail

I am familiar with what a cheat code is.... what baffles me is what place a prize fulfillment has in offering this.
