Not sure I'd call this a contest; it's more like a lottery because there's a good chance nobody will win.
Official rules state that 10 winning PINs were printed inside some 1 million specially marked boxes. If nobody claims those winning PINs, no prizes will be awarded, because there is no draw. Angry Face

I've looked for these specially marked cereal boxes and have had no luck so far. Anyone seen any of them at any locations?

It started back in October, so it's likely there's probably not many left on store shelves now. :(

I haven’t seen any in specially marked cereal boxes in months.

When I did locate some early in the contest (in the west) the stores were Walmart and RCSS.

If you look at the first post it was posted in November. It just recently got bumped by somebody replying to the thread.

I absolutely loathe this type of contest structure, and I regularly complain to organizers that use it.
Wishing everyone a lucky 2020!
