Yes, I prefer the packet-top promotion, too: you know you are going to get something, as well as the chocolate; it's for Cineworld, and there is one fairly local to me and you can choose your own film, date and time. The only problem I've had was in using up the free tickets in time, what with all the free previews and being unable to use the tickets at London Cineworlds. But I eat the chocolate anyway; it's not as though I was b*ying it (or more than usual) just for the tickets.

If you have any spares, feel free to pass to me! :p Yeh the time is limited, finished in May didn't it? I only got one set then and used it on Angels & Demons since I missed the screening for it. I didn't know it was just for Cineworld, that's my closest cinema so I'd gladly use it there anyway! Saves me from driving (which I can't do anymore since my car broke down :( ).

You are supposed to have a 1 in 10 chance of winning so i was quite lucky winning the first time I tried .
Will have to resist the temptation to now go out and b*y a lot more Mars chocolate in an attempt to repeat my success.

Well done Bevvy! o/
Do you pick which DVD or do they just send you one?

Re: I won....Barbie tickets

Hi do you think is real? Just checked my emails and found this.

CONGRATULATIONS!! You have won a pair of tickets to the exclusive premiere of Barbie & The Three Musketeers on Sunday 27th September at the Odeon Cinema, Leicester Square, London.

Doors open at 10.00am. Movie starts at 11.00am. Don't forget to wear something pink.

Due to the postal strike, this email will act as your ticket and admits two people to the screening.

As I cannot get to london for this, my question is has anyone else had this before I offer it.

If you entered the comp then I am sure this is true, they will have a guest list with your name on it.
This is how a lot of tickets prizes are distributed, postal strike or not.
