Can I enter more than once?

You sure can! However it is one (1) entry per person, per day, per qualifying purchase in accordance with entry requirements.

What is a ‘Qualifying Purchase’?

A ‘Qualifying Purchase’ is when you purchase any 2 M&M’S® products ranging in size from 35g to 640g in a single transaction from any Big W retail outlet in Australia or online during the Promotional Period between 02/07/2018 and 05/08/2018.

Can I go to any Big W store to purchase the participating products?

You sure can! All Big W stores are participating in this promotion. Other retailers are not part of this promotion though so make sure you only purchase from Big W to enter.

Do I need to keep my receipt after I have entered?

Yes. Entrants must retain a copy of their Big W purchase receipt(s) as proof of purchase. In some instances, we may need you to email or mail us your receipt to validate your entry.

What do I win?

There will be two hundred (200) winners in each Weekly Draw. The first seventy (70) valid entries drawn in each Weekly Draw will each win the board game Scattergories® (RRP $32.99 each). The next sixty five (65) valid entries drawn in each Weekly Draw will each win the board game Cranium® (RRP $39.99 each). The next sixty five (65) valid entries drawn in each Weekly Draw will each win the board game Speak Out™ (RRP $32.99 each).

Can I choose which board game I win?

Unfortunately not. The prizes are predetermined.

How do I receive my prize?

All prizes will be sent out to the address included in your entry. All winners will be emailed notifying them that they have won, and when they can expect their prize in the post.

Can I exchange my prize for cash?

No. The Weekly Prize is non-refundable or transferable, exchangeable and cannot be taken as cash. But hey, if you don’t want it – gift it to a friend!

Can I use the same receipt to enter multiple times?

No, you will need a new qualifying purchase for each entry. However, if you have multiple qualifying purchases on the same receipt, then you will need to enter on consecutive days for each of these qualifying purchases as the promotion allows only one (1) entry per person, per day, per qualifying purchase in accordance with entry requirements.

Can I enter if I am under the age of 18?

Sure can – entry is open to Australian residents, aged 13 years and over. Entrants under 18 years old must have parental/legal guardian approval to enter and further, the parent/legal guardian of the entrant must read and consent to all terms and conditions. Parents/legal guardians may be required by the Promoter to enter into a further agreement as evidence of consent to this promotion.

Can I win more than once?

Unfortunately not – Eligible Entrants may win a limit of one (1) Prize in the Competition, excluding SA residents.

What would make my entry invalid?

There are a few things that could invalidate your entry:

  • Incomplete or indecipherable entries
  • You are not an Australian resident and/or under the age of 13 years
  • Incorrect barcode number
  • Receipt number from a non-participating retail outlet
  • Failure to produce the proof of purchase for all entries when requested may result in invalidation of ALL of an entrant’s entries and forfeiture of any right to a prize.
  • The use of any automated entry software or any other mechanical or electronic means that allows an entrant to automatically enter repeatedly is prohibited and will render all entries submitted by that entrant invalid
  • Entering using multiple email addresses for the one person
  • Anything we deem as cheating or would give you an unfair advantage over someone who enters in accordance with the T&C’s.

When does this competition end?

5pm on 05/08/2018

I have already eaten my M&M'S® products and disposed of the packaging so I can't enter in the barcode numbers - what do I do?
