This is in continuation to my Winning the Google Nexus 7 with KitKat contest a dream come true article which was very much appreciated by the readers and well as participants in the contest. I am writing this post to clear many a doubts which have come up in the minds of all the participants of the Nestle KitKat Contest. This post became necessary on two counts.
One of the reasons was the extension of the contest by Nestle. The Nestle today extended the contest upto 22nd November 2013. And in this five days it will be giving out 100 Google Nexus 7 2013. The reasons for this extension has not been given by Nestle but it can be safely assumed that these 140 Google Nexus 7 2013 tablets (100 + 40 are part of the original 1000 tablets but due to some reason the contestants/participants may not have been confirmed and/or they would not have sent the required documents to Google. Another reason may be that the Nestle couldnt verify the authenticity of such documents.
But do remember that Nestle/its agency GroupM made a call to each of the contestants whose documents had not reached Ms.Subarna Nandy. Some of the contestants have sent the documents through SpeedPost, the caller from GroupM had requested these winners to resend the documents alongwith a photocopy of the Nestle KITKAT wrapper, if available.
It is safe to assume that if you have not received such a call asking you to resend the documents from GroupM means that your documents are in order and Nestle will deliver the Google Nexus 2013.
The Google Nexus 2013 delivery schedule. The Nestle today began sending SMSes to the winners informing them thus :
This is to inform you that we have received your documents and they are upto mark..your gift will reach your doorstep after 15th november within 6-8 weeks..for queries you may contact 09555290764
I received this message today at 10.00 am in the morning. Further I also received a email from Nestle stating that the delivery will take place within next 6 to 8 weeks.
In this regard I would assume that the delivery process has been initiated by Nestle and we should our Google Nexus 2013 within the end of November. Those staying in remote areas may get it by mid December.
Another of the most asked question on the previous post was that which Google Nexus 2013 will Nestle give. In my opinion Nestle will give out the latest Google Nexus 7 2013 16GB. My belief comes from this image posted on the contest page.
In this image from Kitkats contest page, it is clear that the winners will be given a ALL NEW NEXUS 7 TABLET and you will be among the first 1000 to get it.
Others may have different opinions but I am going to stick with this one. I also think that the 6-8 weeks given by Nestle is a generalised maximum period so that anxiety does not set in among winners. Those staying in cities and Metros will get it earlier than those staying in remote places.
I would also like to thank my reader Manu Prasanna Kumar who went out of the way to answer the queries of readers. I would also like to thank a certain Anonymous visitor who sadly wants to remain anon, who time and again gave valuable comments on the readers queries. I hope both of you will continue helping out the readers as well as me.
Hope you get your GOOGLE NEXUS 7 2013 soon and believe me it is the most wonderful tablet I have laid my hands on!!!
For those who have not won, you can still try your luck for next four days. Remember there is no fixed strategy as such, just plain luck.
KITKAT contest will close today :)
