Thx for this.........just received the DSE email, and downloaded the entry form. Will take it into my local DSE in a couple of days.

happyaussie - 9-2-2009 @ 09:23 AM

Many thanks, I need a new computter:)

bluepurplemoon - 9-2-2009 @ 09:37 AM

Last week i went to hand in my coupon & ask the girl where the entry barrell was, she just said "i"ll take that" and held onto it. Hope it went somewhere other than the bin!

munchkin - 9-2-2009 @ 10:47 AM

I dropped into my local dse this arvo and asked where the entry box was and the staff person pointed to a box on the bottom shelf of a display for Logitech. If she hadn't pointed it out to me I wouldn't have seen it.

Not a very big box. About 30cm square. From what I could see through the little slit to put entry in, there wasn't many entries in there.

Thanks for posting the comp mettie :):):)

Hellbiddy - 10-2-2009 @ 01:11 AM

Same here munchin the box is very small with nothing at all about being for a competition, don't think there were any entries in the box:D

Good luck everyone:)

kemistry - 15-3-2009 @ 12:57 AM

Has any lottos member won one??
I have just been speaking to friends who have won one but didn't put an entry in! They did however make a couple of purchases at the store so obviously someone has 'slipped' an entry in for them without their knowledge??? Got to wonder don't you?
