kelster200460 - 8-11-2008 @ 06:43 AM

They are $13.40 for a 6 pack here on the Gold Coast. So it's cheaper for me to go to 1st Choice

kelster200460 - 8-11-2008 @ 06:46 AM

luckyeleven - 14-11-2008 @ 06:56 AM

I have just brought 4 packs and nothing.

Luck is not coming my way at all lately.

I think I need to go and start drinking the strongbows, and getting pissed, so I don't have to think about what I just spent.

wenwin - 19-11-2008 @ 05:36 AM

Two sets of speakers arrived today - one will be in prize exchange.

LisaBart - 30-11-2008 @ 04:02 AM

Scored a bag last night.

Miacod - 12-12-2008 @ 12:07 AM

Why can't they send me doubles of trips or TV's or cash??

Ha ha ha

banana - 12-12-2008 @ 04:40 AM

I've received doubles of what I've won too, not sure what's going on.

LisaBart - 16-12-2008 @ 01:38 PM

I also received a second set.

clover - 16-12-2008 @ 10:28 PM

sheesh, I can't even win anything

kelster200460 - 17-12-2008 @ 05:46 AM

Just had this email from the Strongbow guys, about double up prizes being sent out:

Well done on winning a prize.

Consumers who have received multiple prizes will be contacted shortly to organise return of their additional prize.

Remember to hold onto your proof of purchase.

debrastasia35 - 18-12-2008 @ 12:41 AM

They want the prize back ???????????? pffffffffffffffftttttttttttt

Wish they would call me about my audi......:P

wenwin - 19-12-2008 @ 02:00 AM

Have just received a sms message asking me to return a bbq tool set. Had to ask my neighbour for it back. Not happy. I also do not have the wrapping so will be posting back in a used postage bag.

banana - 19-12-2008 @ 02:02 AM

Well I haven't still got the wrapping so how can I return to sender, I really think they've got buckleys of getting everything back.

pompom - 19-12-2008 @ 02:42 AM

I got an email and an sms from them - But I haven't received a second one!

kelster200460 - 19-12-2008 @ 02:46 AM

If the outside packaging is removed or damaged, please address the package to Reply Paid 1140, Brookvale NSW 2100 by 23/12. This is a free postage service.

moonwolf - 19-12-2008 @ 04:53 AM

I also got an email stating that I am to send back a duplicate prize!

WTF?????? I never recieved a duplicate prize. I only received the one prize I was notified of in the instant win online.....

Gawd I hate promoters who can't run a comp properly :mad:

Pattyfield - 19-12-2008 @ 10:02 AM

I received a 2nd prize today of some speakers. I might keep them wrapped up for when I receive the email to send them back :(

LisaBart - 19-12-2008 @ 01:51 PM

I got second prize too..but no email yet. Hope they send me 2 audis

kaspa - 21-12-2008 @ 12:25 PM

8 entries and no instant wins- hop they are saving the Audi for me:cool:

clover - 21-12-2008 @ 09:15 PM

kaspa, I thought the Audi was also instant win

ReallyAddicted - 21-12-2008 @ 10:31 PM

Yep, looks like the audis are major instant wins. One for October/November, one for December and one for January :)

Good Luck!

LisaBart - 21-12-2008 @ 10:44 PM

So they release the major wins one a month?.....haven't heard of anyone getting one yet so fingers crossed its a second chance draw.
Think I have enough to open a bottlo so might not buy any more.

clover - 21-12-2008 @ 11:06 PM

don't like the instant wins. would rather just the small prizes that way with major from a final drawer. I've only bought a couple of packs and I think I'm done with this one

Dark Enigma - 28-12-2008 @ 04:22 AM

Hubby comes home with the Strongbows box yesterday all proud. "I found one with a competition on it" he boasts. "Where's the receipt?" I say. "Oh, I didn't get one - do you need it?" he says.

*sighs* Looks like I still need to train him some more. ;)

kelster200460 - 28-12-2008 @ 07:25 AM

I hear you mate.
Maybe Andrew could run a Lottoers spouse/partners workshop on what to do when you see a comp, etc :)

kelster200460 - 28-12-2008 @ 07:25 AM

I understand... maybe Andrew could set up a Lottoers spouse workshop, tips to remember what to do when they see a comp etc :)

kelster200460 - 28-12-2008 @ 07:27 AM

You been on the strongbow Kelster???? Hic !!;)

kelster200460 - 28-12-2008 @ 08:33 AM

I wish :)

Carolanne37 - 29-12-2008 @ 11:52 PM

I received 2 speaker sets, I have not had a letter or email to send one back, I have given them both away & anyway I would not send them back, as both had letters saying congratulatons your a winner & the letters had different dates on them. I cannot see how they could make you sent prize back :P

compson - 30-12-2008 @ 05:20 AM

I think they came via registered post so there would be a record of someone signing for them and I think the reference number on your letters (even with different dates) would be the same.

Bimberoony - 30-12-2008 @ 06:43 AM

mine didnt come registered mail,, just left at the front door

roses2905 - 2-1-2009 @ 06:59 AM

Sigh, 5 entires and nuffin. Ah well, mum is over from WA till the end of the month, Im sure she will provide more entries for me, lol

kaspa - 19-1-2009 @ 08:06 AM

12 entries and nothing at least I can drink the stuff and have a good excuse for buying more

Bigam - 19-1-2009 @ 12:03 PM

kaspa - how do you manage to turn the computer on after drinking all of that!

LisaBart - 6-2-2009 @ 10:40 PM

I'd like to announce.............

Nahh didnt win, have emailed them to see if the Audis have been won though but some results will be in pn's on the 11th, this Wednseday.

LisaBart - 7-2-2009 @ 01:26 AM

Hi Lisa,

We received your issue alert below.

The promotion was an Ďinstant winí promotion where the date and time of valid entries determined whether you were a winner.

Yes Ė the Audiís have been won and will be published on Feb 11 in The Australian.

We are still trying to contact some winners so there may be minor prizes in the second chance draw.

:(:(:(:(:(:(:( wonder who is driving my Audi:(:(:(:(:(:(

griffin - 7-2-2009 @ 05:22 AM

Yep poor us Lisa, I've been home & no one's tried to ring me so someone's got my car too (as usual) :(
