so weird "Entrants must save shape submitted to be eligible for Grand Prize." So you have to save the cheeto... you cannot eat itFace With Tears Of Joy

Edited to add: How can it be no purchase necessary?

Not sure - I just copied whatever summary of rules were on the page - I assume the full rules should be on now.

So I'm still trying to figure out No Purchase Entry. Rules state "NO PURCHASE ENTRY: To participate without making a purchase, visit the Contest Website, choose any CHEETOS CRUNCHY® snack and follow the online instructions to submit an Entry (as provided above). Standard message and data rates may apply for participants accessing the Contest Website on their mobile device." - still sounds like you have to buy a bag!
No matter how much you push the envelope, it will still be stationery.

I emailed to inquire about the No Purchase Entry, this was the reply. “Thank you for contacting PepsiCo Foods Canada concerning the Cheetos Museum Promotion. Even if you do not purchase the product in order to participate you need to upload a picture in order to enter the contest. To participate without making a purchase, visit the Contest Website at cheetosmuseum.ca , choose any CHEETOS CRUNCHY® snack and follow the online instructions to submit an Entry (as provided above). Standard message and data rates may apply for participants accessing the Contest Website on their mobile device. If you have any additional questions please call us at 1800-376-2257.” Sounds like there is NO - No Purchase Entry to me???

Try taking a picture of the generic cheetos they have on the site and entering? Maybe that's what they meant?

Here's the NPN link https://www.cheetosmuseum.ca/alternate-entry

I guess you save it to your computer then upload it as your pic entry.

I guess you save it to your computer then upload it as your pic entry, and how it satifies the "keep entry Cheeto for verification" rule.
Your guess is as good as mine. I wonder how the "judges" will judge these entries.

My NPN entry was rejected as per rule 6.

I attached a photo of one of their own cheetos, which I uploaded from their site.

Still do not know why it’s rejected, was I suppose to alter the photo to make it my own?
