is this the STQ you are all referring too from earlier in thread that is the correct question asked to win?

STQ is to be answered in order given (no BEDMAS)
10 x 2 / 5 + 16 - 2 = 18

Can't recall but Mac's fulfillment outfit uses Fedex, a company I've grown to dislike after 2 of my parcels arrived damaged. With Purolator, no problems...
Ah, ok. I read this post yesterday and I saw a few FedEx Express vans (Federal Express Express, what?) around my area later. Needless to say, I got excited for nothing lol.

Around how long would you say it took to get your prize package (from the time you were a confirmed winner to the time you received it)? I'd like a better idea of when to expect it, other than 4-10 weeks. Thanks in advance =)

I won the last two times this contest was on. They ship with Purolator if I recall. Took about 1.5-2 weeks to arrive after confirming my info. Keep in mind I’m in Alberta and I won late into both contests. It’s possible they don’t have the prize stocked yet and they also have to ship out a lot of winners prior to the x launch so it might take more time.

^ I kinda figured that they would start shipping as soon as they possibly could, meaning after the X officially launched. I didn't consider that they may not even have them stocked yet (I figured they might have received them somewhat early). You're right, though...if there are priorities with shipping, it'd be people who won before the X launch who would get top priority. I got the confirmation email the day before the X launched, so I'm hoping I'll only have to wait 4 weeks tops, though 1.5-2 weeks would certainly be awesome.

Anyways, thanks for answering! And in any case, I'll be sure to let everyone here know when my shipment comes. Hopefully, some of the other winners do the same.

For those wondering how soon it will get shipped to you, I won this contest in 2013 on November 11th the Xbox one release date was November 22nd and received my Xbox on December 12th so nearly 3 weeks after launch day.
I’d guess there’s a good chance anyone who has won already will get it before Christmas Christmas Tree

It seems odd that no one has received a unit yet though the contest is now a month gone and the units (or some of them at least) were supposed to be received by the fulfillment house prior to Nov. 7th which was the release date of the X. But that was only a couple days ago, so it could be a couple weeks or so until anyone who has won up to now receives one. Will have to keep scanning the various forums to see if anyone receives one. I'd imagine it to be a bit of a nightmare handling this many large prizes. As well, they probably send them out in a bunch to save on bulk shipping costs. Can you imagine the US one though where it's a prize every 60 seconds!? Crazy...

I imagine it won't be too long before we start seeing posts (on here or on other forums) from people who have received their prizes. I'd give it another week or two.

I think the 2013 contest came with a copy of Forza 5. I'm curious if that was on disc or if that was a code printed on a card. I want to know because the XB1X prizes come with Forza 7, but I already have a digital copy of it. Ideally, I'd like to get a disc copy that I can sell or trade in.

They came with a disc copy of the game.

I believe I was the first to report a win here (October 19th) so I hope to be getting something this week or next week. I will let everyone know when it arrives.

Same here, I won fairly early as well, right after cofh posted. (I was actually reading that post when my call came in.) I'll post with pics when I receive my prize. :)
I <3 Pepsi!!

Just got a call and answered the question correctly - how long before the release email shows up for other winners? Been about 30 minutes and haven't received it yet....
