2020/08/28 Vachon Bakery Not A Takis Contest , purch or NPE

Prize : A total of seventy-eight (78) Daily Prizes (the "Prize”) are available to be won throughout the Contest Period. Prize consists of an ‘ALL-IN-ONE Virtual Reality System’, inclusive of a Oculus Go headset, controller, USB cable, AA battery and frame-friendly spacer (approximate retail value of $199 CDN). The daily prize Draw Period starts June 13, 2020 and end on August 29, 2020.

A random draw (the “Prize Draw”) will be held in Whitby, ON around 10:00 AM ET each day from June 13, 2020 to August 29, 2020 (“the Draw Dates”) for entries pooled throughout the Contest Period.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. To enter without purchase, a Registered Participant must first make a No Purchase Entry Request ("NPE Request") by visiting www.notatakiscontest.ca/no-purchase-entry during the Contest Period and clicking the appropriate button to request a one-time use No Purchase Entry (NPE) PIN.

Once the No Purchase Entry Request has been submitted, the unique NPE PIN will be displayed onscreen and delivered by email to the email address used to register, along with instructions for completing the NPE Request. NPE PINs are only valid for one (1) NPE Request.
You must then submit a unique handwritten original (not photocopied) 200-word (minimum) essay on, "What is your favourite Takis® product and why?” (an “Essay”) and reference your unique NPE PIN on a single piece of paper, in a self-addressed envelope to: Not A Takis Contest PO Box 174 Whitby, ON L1N 5S1 (the “Contest Address”).

Each No Purchase Entry Request must contain an original Essay, a valid NPE PIN and must be enclosed in a separate envelope bearing sufficient postage in order to qualify for one (1) Entry into the Contest (each a “No Purchase Entry”). Each Essay can be used only once and will result in one (1) Ballot. Once a No Purchase Entry Request is received and reviewed for compliance, per above, by the Contest Administrator, an entry confirmation email will be delivered confirming the Entry status. A limit of one (1) NPE Request can be made per day during the Contest Period. No Purchase Entries must be received by August 28, 2020.

Hard to find Vachon product anymore since most food stores have their own bakeries. Thanks though...

Who carries these? Bought another Vachon product but that does not qualify. The 200 word NPE is BS when almost every other contest is 50. Guess they lost a lot of money to Frito Lay and want to recoup it. Have not found this product yet anyway...

They are actually a corn chip type product. I bought mine at Zehrs (Loblaws brand) They were in the Mexican food section.

Found out some info on the device:

Don't like all the Facebook stuff and privacy may be an issue but I can always give the device away as a gift if I don't like it...

Found out you can side load a bunch of interesting apks to this thing. Also apps like Plex work on it. Might keep it at that if I can win one...

Probably why the sponsor was able to get so many of them...last of the stock. Would go well with my PSVR which hardly ever gets used. Waiting to see what new VR products get released in the next year or so...

Apparently, there is a premium on these now that they are discontinued. You could sell it for more than the MSRP:

For those who have won one, might get the carrying case for it as it's on for 50% off at Best Buy:
