  • Hopefully the woolies stock up again here in whoop whoop!

    • What temp website you use?

        I used all real email accounts I generated for last event. I have about 30. gmx, Outlook, Gmail, aol, Freenet, Mail.Com etc.

    • Any tips on how you got yours to work? - The codes during checkout

      • No idea. Sorry. Maybe just luck?

        • It didn't occur to me to try a different barcode. I got one to work at one store. Time to go out tomorrow for free grill'd burger and get chips as well.

  • Are the codes actually working ???

    Are they locking up barcodes to certain post codes?? I just put random post codes normally

    • -2

      7 of 8 worked for me.

      • Did you put different post codes? at websites for each one? i put random numbers on website, e.g. some sydney, some melbourne, some adelaide, some canberra etc all random

        • +1

          It shouldn't matter. It worked using random post codes last promo

          • @NoiceMemes: last promo also didnt give error
            coupon not found. please put the item aside. etc…

  • I haven't been able to get any despite getting up at 5.30am for work each day (which is why I can't stay up until midnight :') ) - does any one have a spare code they won't use at all?

    • -2

      I'll dm you a code, but you have to turn on your dms

  • Missed out again here too 😢. A spare code would be much appreciated if anyone has one they don’t need 🙏

    • -3

      Will dm you a code

      • Thanks so much 🙏🙏🙏

    anyone actually manage to redeem this in store yet? last promo had no issues

  • +2

    Barcode didn't work at woolies Mascot. Said "coupon not found". Tried at different registers.

  • +2

    So many bags of chips at Woolworths Burwood brickworks but barcode doesn't work.

    • Same here in ACT. Heaps of stock but coupon didn’t work. Lame

  • Do you have to scan the barcode on the chips first then this to offset it? The email says you just scan the barcode in the email but that didn’t work according to people.

    • -1

      Scan chips first, then the barcode in the email.
      Barcodes aren't working….who wants to spam mccains.

  • +3

    It only works on Pub Style Extra Crispy, but not Pub Style Fries right?

  • I got bar code not accepted last time at self check out .. then I went to the normal assisted checkout and it worked. Not sure why ….

  • Anyone got their barcode accepted, maybe you can list which store did you claim yours? Cheers

    • +2

      South Melbourne. Self-checkout.

  • +11

    I tried it at my local Woolies and it didn't work, register lady looked at me like my username…damn, sold my dignity over a $3.5 item

    • You are getting the wrong ones. The barcode freebie is for the $4.50 pub style extra crispy chips.

      • I tried scanning the code first then the product, still shows invalid coupon

        • I tried scanning the code first then the product

          So you got it working scan the chip first ?

          • @superforever: no, it doesn't. neither worked (code first the product, product first then code)

  • +1

    Working at self service check out with camera at Marrickville, Sydney. I took the last one so I assumed it would work.

      • +8

        Greed

  • Went to my local WW today. Fridge was full of the Pub Style variety, none are Pub Style Extra Crispy :(

  • +6

    Couldn't redeem my code. Looks like many others are the same.

    Code doesn't work in store. Useless.

  • wonder why some hit and some miss?

  • +1

    2 out of 2, not working for me, self checkout.. coupon not found message

  • +8

    Wouldn't be bother trying anymore, it was kind of embarrassing holding up the checkout line, and everyone just looking at you trying to claim a bag of chips and it wasn't working.

    • Same to me in wws Rhodes centre. Really embarrassing so I give up.

  • +1

    Surprised no one has mentioned this on McCain’s socials (IG/FB)

  • Despite the fact people complaining about codes not working in store, 2000 vouchers are already gone for today. Whoosh!

    • not gone .. it's the fact this whole process is messed up … as of just recently 464 taken … {"limit_exceeded":false,"limit":2000,"count":464,"count_custom":8466,"limit_custom":20000}

      "Sorry, we couldn't validate your email. [ER03]" is the NEW standard, lol

    • No they are not… you are not on the right time schedule mate…

      • Yes. My clock was 3 minutes early.

        • You can't refresh your tab saying "All have been claimed" it will refresh the out of stock page. You have to reclick the link in the post or bookmark it.

  • just claimed it

    • +1

      This is only the beginning of your journey..

      • hopefully it'll be a smooth journey claiming (but I'm not hopeful given the comments lmao)

        • +3

          if i were a betting man, I would be hitting up Betfair right now to take $1.12 that you will fail

    • +1

      just claimed it

      Woolies still open? 😁

  • +1

    I have an idea, I reckon that the codes that do work have a distinct pattern that for some reason allows them to work while others don't.

    If you have already redeemed a code and it's been successful, could you please comment below its number sequence? I'd like to analysis this data!

    • I had 1 that worked that was 201xxxxx
      and another that worked that was 200xxxxx
      but also others with 200xxxxx and 201xxxxx that didn't work.
      Used a self-checkout

      • That's a shame, maybe 20% of codes work while the rest are glitched. I might try tomorrow at my local woolies and see which codes work

  • +2

    Tried 2 codes today. No luck. Promo fail.

  • +1

    Tried at Woolworths Marsfield. Didn't work.

  • +2

    Code didn’t work, but staff great, did an override and gave it to me free anyways.

  • +5

    How can the code not work? If this is the case the promo is not legal, and may come under false advertising or illegal promotions, and attract the attention of the ACCC.

  • +1

    The code didn't work at Woolies… Staff just said to call some number..

  • +3

    Code didn't work at self-checkout, but the attendant overrode it for me.
    Messaged them on facebook, will see what they respond with.

    • +3

      Looks like McCain is finally responding to FB message. Asking details about the failed transaction, where and the barcode.
      Lets see where this goes.

  • -1

    I have two from 22Oct and two from 24Oct, claimed two bags today.

    One from 22Oct didn't work, so may be nothing to do with the database needs time to update.

    The two that worked the code are 983807 200xxxxx, the one that didn't work is 983807 201xxxxx.

    In that case seem to me code with 200xxxxx is OK but 201xxxxx not good.

    Please check your code to see if that is the case.

    • I had 1 that worked that was 201xxxxx
      and another that worked that was 200xxxxx
      but also others with 200xxxxx and 201xxxxx that didn't work.
      Used a self-checkout

      • In that case no idea bad system

        • Dang that sucks, will try tomorrow myself. But with those last 5 digits for the ones that did work, did they have anything in common or just totally random numbers (besides the very last digit being 0 since that's also common between every code)?

  • +2

    1/3 worked for me, I got them a few days ago so I don't think it's a database update thing.

  • Grabbed two codes last night (one for me, one for the missus), and the checkout person at Woolworths had no problems scanning them both through today.

    • Seperate transactions at assisted? Might give it a go.

  • +2

    Bloody shit.. Didn't work with any code

  • None of the codes I got worked. Woolies team refunded the cost of it though. Codes from ~3am AEDT 23/10

  • +2

    Top Ryde Woolworths didn't work, spoke with the store manager. He was very nice unfortunately nothing he can do about it. :(

  • +2

    I had the same issue as everyone else. 'Coupon Not Found' when I tried to scan. Was told tough luck at Woolies. I then messaged McCain via Facebook and they first said to verify I was only trying to redeem for the Extra Crispy and that I was in a Woolworths store. I directed them to this forum to let them know that it wasn't just me! Will be interesting to see how they respond to all of this. I know it's only a free bag of chips but when promotions are implemented poorly then it doesn't make them look good.

  • +3

    Mine didn't work either. Was trying to self-checkout for 5 minutes, and it just wouldn't work. Even the person at the checkout couldn't help me. Pretty annoying, ended up paying for the chips.

  • +2

    I am sorry but I have to neg this post.
    -Issues arose which were not rectified in a satisfactory or timely manner.

    (Contacted McCain and Woolworths- Both have not resolved the issue). I will gladly revoke the neg if the issue is sorted.

    Hi Everyone:

    I have received a response from McCain. "We are working on the issue & we’ll come back to you as soon as the issue is fixed"

      Thank you for your head-up!

      Hi iNeed2Pee,

      Can I ask you whether you heard from McCain?

      • +1

        Nope nothing yet!

        • Thanks!

  • +1

    This voucher did not work at Woolies and I could not get the chips

  • Maybe the codes are unique but sequential, and someone has generated a few extra barcodes (using a simple barcode generator), and has already redeemed them. Therefore when we go to redeem them instore, they are coming up invalid (already used)?

    • +1

      Lol. They're just bags of chips..

    • +2

      Unlikely, it's more Woolworths' POS POS system hasn't been loaded with the coupons.

      No WikiLeaks conspiracy going on

      • Barcodes won't work but try bag an item that's one gram out BAM you're not progressing anywhere buddy!
