Airfix compo...Who fancies some Hot Dogs???
« on: January 21, 2014, 04:13:05 am »
Hi there guys, do.nt know if anyone has seen this, but the company 'Ye Old Oak', who do processed Hot Dog sausages, among other things, have hooked up with Airfix to do a competition.

Under the label of their cans with the competion markings on them, is a code that you put into their website to win free starter kits, AND the chance to win free membership of the Airfix Club!

The cans are generally only around 0.64 - I put in the code from the first can we bought, and yesterday, Airfix sent me THREE starter kits!!  :blink: :cheers: :bow:

Worth a punt, eh?

Not a fan of hot dogs either. Dunno' if i'd even give them to my dogs! ;D
Made with 'mechanically recovered' meat!
Just give me a horse steak, at least i'd know what i'm eating!
But, can see lots of labels being peeled off in store. ;)

Don't these competitions have to have a 'no purchase required' option.  Worth a scout about the website...

There IS a no-purchase option, but you've got to be on Facebook. From the website:


Quote
The Promotion

2.The promotion consists of a specific website www.yeoldeoak.co.uk/airfix and a facebook page www.facebook.com/yeoldeaokhotdogchallenge

3.The website promotion period runs from 21st September 2013 31st March 2014, although Ye Olde Oak reserves the right to end this promotion early in which case, it will be announced on the website.

4.The facebook promotion requires no purchase and this will operate for 20 weeks from 21st September 2013, although Ye Olde Oak also reserves the right to end this promotion early in which case, it will be announced on the facebook page.

5.The website promotion is an instant win. The facebook promotion is a weekly prize draw.

Got two cans today, opened one, didn't win. The stir-fry was nice though.... :thumbsup:

LOVE hot dogs! Best enjoyed at a campfire, or at the Rogers Centre while watching the Jays destroy the Yankees. Both, of course, with beer.  :cheers:

Hot dogs in a can?  :blink:

Or a jar, but the jars in Sainsbury's didn't have the promo label.

Not sure if they're available in the UK anymore, haven't seen any Pillsbury products in a loooong time. Wrapping the dogs sounds like a great idea! Used to get the donuts in a can when I was a kid.
