Any winners yet for the DewXP Giveaway?

Just wondering if anyone was notified yet for the sweepstakes that Pepsi/Frito Lay was doing. I Know they did the drawings on the 7th, so it cant be much longer before winners are notified. I actually reached my limit of 750 codes and put them all into the Halo Xbox....hope I win.

have not heard any sweepstakes results myself. haha...i hope you didn't actually drink all that mountain dew and eat all those doritos yourself (you probably wouldn't be alive to post your message otherwise) . i'm still annoyed that i wasted a majority of my double xp on war games (i read the fine print, and it said was only valid for war games) instead of spartan ops. could've been much higher on my sr rank .

Holy shit I did way too much Doritos and Dew to get my measly 116 entries for the xbox. Fuck if there are so much as like 4 of you with nearly 7 times me then I'm fucked

I never redeemed a single XP code...so I know I won't be winning anything.

Best of luck to those that entered, hope you guys get something out of it.

Curious though, how do people manage to get their hands on so many codes?! Do you have to mug a random person that's topping off a Mountain Dew, and take the cap? Did you dig around in trash cans, looking for codes on Doritos bags? Seems like a lot of effort.

1 code = 6 tokens. I redeemed about 6 codes and used them in Spartan Ops (best bang for your buck IMO). Over the course of a few months, it wasn't a whole lot of chips.

I maxed out my points legit. 94% Mountain Dew Game Fuel, 4% doritos, and the remaining 2% from a couple guys at work that would give me their caps if they happened to remember. Hope I win. Fingers crossed on that Canvas Art. Supposedly it's worth some moolah and it would be a fine piece in my collection.

The Virgin Infinity Challenge was ruined by cheaters, glitchers, boosters and modders from the very beginning.

That seems about right since people that mod and hack to get to the top of a tournament probably are virgins.

Is the punch line that most of them are under 17 years old?

I was emailed about the Infinity Challenge (99th incase anyone was wondering) on the 7th and was told the prize would take 4-6 weeks to deliver. Don't know what I'm going to do with a warthog toy, maybe I'll donate it to charity during the holidays or something.

Thats cool you won a prize from the Infinity Challenge but I'm still wondering if anyone has heard if there were any winners for the Mountain Dew/Doritos sweepstakes. The suspense is killing me lol. Oh and if you want to donate that Warthog, Id be glad to take it off your hands. =^_^=

Yea Im beginning to believe this was a rigged sweepstakes. I had all 750 entries on the Halo Xbox and still haven't gotten any news about the drawings. Ive been searching online and really no one has any info on this yet. I'm about to call Pepsi Co and see if they know.

I have to wonder how one gets 750 entries if you were only allowed 200 Double XP points. Especially since each code was only worth 1 entry whereas it was worth 3 or more Double XP matches. At most, you couldn't have more than... roughly 63 entries, correct? Unless I'm missing something here...

You could only credit 200 matches to your account total. You can still enter codes in, you just cant give your profile any more than 200 matches worth of 2xP. Meaning you could enter up to 750 freaking codes if you so like

I know the ARV is $325, but what can I expect to get on ebay for this, should I choose to sell it? (supposing that its different from the ARV)

Aww! D: That's precisely the thing I was trying to win. Lucky bastard! I idolize you.

I've seen those on eBay on and off and their price generally varies from $300 to $500. If you're big into the whole game convention scene, you could try to get it signed by 343 and it would really boost the value, though I don't know how anybody could sell something so beautiful...

Ive been trying to find this on Ebay with no success. What search parameters/terms did you use exactly?

And it's a fine piece of art, to be sure. I'm considering selling it because artwork is not something that I collect, and I could use the extra cash for college books.

Like I said, it's on and off. There may not be any listed right now. I just did a search for Halo Canvas and fussed around with the search parameters a little. Ended up coming across a couple of the one you have amongst others.

Would you be so kind as to tell me how you were notified of your winnings. I'd greatly appreciate it.
