    Any body here had a go at this KitKash thing that KitKat are doing?

    It’d totally passed me by until I discovered my brother, his mate and both dads have bought over £2,000 worth of Kit Kats over the past 2 months and have won over £6,000 of prizes!

    Only problem is they now have about 20,000, yes 20,000 KitKats between them. :jawdrop: They’ve managed to sell some onto little local shops and a camp site but that’s still a whole load of KitKats!

    I thinnk the bidding system is a bit ropey but in one 30 minute auction a brand nre Pugeot 307 went for 30 quids worth of KitKats.

    So what do you do, bid with kit-kat wrappers?

    Yeah, basically inside kitkat wrappers, you get a code which when entered into the website gives you points in your account - you obviously get more for the wrapper of a big multipack than that of a kitkat chunky.

    You can then use those points to bid on the auctions...

    Do you know approx how many points you'd get for certain products?

    I don't know tbh. I do know that towards the begining of the offer my brother had a 26" Phillips LCD TV that retails for about £800 for £75 worth of KitKats.

    I think it's getting pretty hard to win stuff now as there's no proxy bidding and you have to sit there hammering the bid button.

    My brother was into that as well which is why he was so fast of the mark with this.

    You wouldn't believe how much I laughed when I found out my dad went round all the on one Saturday morning and bought £250 worth of KitKats!

    Could do but even most cash and carrys can't compete with the prices that the Tescos and Asdas of this world can sell at due to the volumes they buy in.

    He's had a 42" plasma as well. Think that set them back about £400 though...

    I'd get too peed off entering all those codes before I reached £400 worth!
