Winning the Google Nexus 7 with KitKat contest, a dream come true

You may remember my post, where Google and Nestle has launched a contest on 27th September, 2013.  Nestle in association with the Google was giving out free Google Nexus 7 on the hour every hour to Indian participants for promoting Googles launch of Android 4.4 KitKat.
Winning the Google Nexus 7 with KitKat contest, a dream come true

Well, I had to buy the Nestle's KitKat for making the blog post regarding the contest with a step by step tutorial and surprise surprise, I won a Google Nexus 7 on 17th October 2013 with the Nestle's KIT KAT I bought.  I will get delivery of my prized Google Nexus 7 after 15th November, 2013 when the contest closes.

My congratulations to those of other 640 lucky contestants who have won the Google Nexus 7 as of today.  For the others I would like to bring to notice some salient requirements of the contest which the Google KitKat Terms and Conditions page doesnt mention.  

First of all once you send a message containing the code to KitKat, you will receive a message stating that 
Thank you for participating in the KIT KAT program. Winners will be contacted shortly.  Kindly regain the wrapper.  Visit www.android.com/kitkat for T&C

This message will be received by all of those who participate in the contest.  The key is the second message which is received within 10 to 15 minutes of the first one.  If you receive the second message which is as below, provided your documents are in order, Congratulations, you have won a Google Nexus 7.
Thanks for your participation in the Kit Kat Program.  You shall be contacted within 24 hours by our representative. Kindly retain the wrapper.  Visit www.android.com/kitkat for T&C.
Once you get this message stay close to your mobile phone, dont make unnecessary calls and wait for the Kit Kat representative to contact you. First and foremost she will ask for the wrapper code. Then she will proceed take down all your details and ask you your email id.  Kindly spell out the email id to her and make her repeat this email id.  Once she says Congratulations you have won the Google Nexus 7, your name will be listed on the KitKat contest page.

Wait for the second call this time from Delhi.  The caller, usually a male will confirm whatever you said to the first representative. Once it is confirmed, they will send a email to your email address containing a Blank No Dues Certificate and a Form 60 (in case you dont have a PAN card).  You are to fill this out, enclose the NDC, Form 60, photocopy of your address proof, PAN (all self attested) and the wrapper (staple it on a blank paper) and send it to the following address :
Ms. Subarna Nandy
GroupM Media India Private Limited
1st Floor, Building No. 9A
DLF Cyber City, Phase – III
Gurgaon – 122 002
Haryana

You should send the documents within 7 days from the date of second call by courier or registered post.  I sent it across through Bluedart, as Bluedart is fast and has a good tracking service.  

Reading my post, many of my friends and colleagues participated in the contest and as of today 3 of us have won including me.  If you are still interested, there are around 320 Google Nexus 7 left still to be won and the last date is 15th November 2013.  Head over to the post here for details.  
If you have any query regarding the procedure kindly leave your question in the comments box and I will answer to it.  

The contest has closed today and there are lots of happy faces for winning a new Google Nexus 7 2013 while some are heart broken.  A reader of the Blog has made a special names cloud of the Winners names which I take the pleasure of putting up on my blog.
Winning the Google Nexus 7 with KitKat contest, a dream come true

A special thanks to my reader Manu Prasanna Kumar who not only won a Google Nexus 7 2013 but also helped a lot of contestants with timely answers.  I will make a separate post regarding the despatch of the Google Nexus 7 2013 by Nestle in due course :)

    1. Hey Anon it all depend on luck I guess :) In my opinion you should send one entry every hour and hope to get lucky as Google chooses random winners from lots per hour. Multiple entries dont make sense to me but many have won that way too (o) Best of luck (c)

  9. Hi first of all congrats to you. I have too won a nexus 7 and my question is that can I change y namewhich I gave it to the first representative. .??? Actually I go to office from morning 7 to night 10 and it is necessary to be at home whose name we've given and I am probably not at home. So I want to change my name to my mom's name as she would be at home. . Please reply me thanks. ,

You should get the send call tomorrow i.e. on 6th itself and send all the documents mentioned above by tomorrow evening to Subarna Nandy :)

  11. Hi Vijay Prabhu, I too got selected for the Kitkat Nexus 7 Prize today. I got the first call as of now. The lady asked details like name,address,age and whether the phone number is registered on my name? She told that another call will be made within 48 hrs. I am delighted and waiting for my first android device!
    What are other formalities and docs to be sent? Please advise.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Congrats Manu :) You will receive a call by tomorrow afternoon. After that follow the instructions I have posted. The second caller will tell you what documents you have to send. I guess PAN card and Passport/Aadhar Card/Voter ID would do the trick. They will also send you a No Dues Certificate in your mail. You have to fill it out and sign across on a Rs.1.00 revenue stamp and take a witness signature. Send the dox across through Blue Dart and you are done :) (c)

  12. Congrats Vijay Prabhu and everyone who won the prized Nexus 7 tab (hopefully it should be the latest 2013 version). If it is, that will be a BIG jackpot. Now waiting for 2nd call and formalities.Send more smses and enjoy frozen kitkats!

  13. Congrats Vijay and Manu for the win... I also just sent an sms at 6:27 pm .. If the draw is done hourly I guess the winners will be announced around 7pm and not just after 10-15mins.

    3. Thank You Mohsin :) I have been trying to send only one sms in an hour bracket and trying with different mobile numbers randomly without any specific logic ! Actually I still haven't assimilated that I have been lucky. After all this is an absolute first for me. I tried to send at least 3 per day. You may try sending at the last 5 minutes of an hour bracket also ! :d and also during afternoon time :d. Finally its all luck I guess but don't lose belief;thats important :)

  14. Hi ! I too want to be a nexus winner. I am participating in the contest since 27th October and i am impatiently waiting for the time to come. Pls suggest how random should i send sms to get a high probability of winning?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well Sonia first of best of luck for your endeavour :) It all depends on luck but you should try sending one every hour. This is just a guess (c)

      Delete
    2. Just one per hour is a good method, as also said by Vijay Prabhu. The draw logic,i guess considers the location, time of day, mobile operator, big cities like mumbai etc. So try with one per hour and random usage of different mobile numbers! :) Best of Luck & Logic !!

      Delete
    3. Multiple sms per hour from same number is not a good idea,i guess, because google would club the smses from same mobile number (in an hour) as single entry to give fair chance to everybody !

  15. Hey dude !! Congrats on winning the Nexus 7 :) i have been trying to win since Sep 27 and have entered the contest more than 20 times but have won none :( :(

    1. Hi Prasanna :) thanks for the compliments. Regarding your query neither I nor anybody from my acquaintance received any questions from KITKAT which are supposed to answered. Neither have any of the commentators above brought anything like this to notice. Do you stay in India because there is a separate KITKAT contest going on for other countries :P

  16. Hi Vijay, i am from chennai. There are separate Terms and Conditions for Tamil Nadu

    SMS Route:
    (i) As a first step, Participants are required to SMS the unique code printed inside of the KITKAT wrapper to 0 98802 98802 from any mobile phone before or during the Program Period. After such SMS is sent the following shall apply:
    (a) The Participant shall receive a question through a SMS which shall be sent by the Agency to the Participant’s mobile number.
    (b) If the Participant answers the question correctly, his/her entry shall be eligible to be considered for winner selection. Details on how this will happen are described under "Winner Selection".
    (c) However if the Participant answers the question incorrectly, his/her entry shall be disqualified and shall not be considered for winner selection.

    Hope am answering the question correctly !! I have bought a kitkat today too in hope of winning a Nexus 7 !! Hope i win atleast today :) Pray for me guys

  17. I sent one code at 10:03 am today also but still no luck.. Can all the winners here share me the exact time when the winning sms was sent, which carrier, prepaid or postpaid and which kitkat was used (4F,2F or Kitkat Dark) ?? I know i am assuming too much but hope it works. I sent the sms through my vodafone postpaid no. and used a Kitkat 4F.

    Looks like I have to get a full kit kat box today to win this 1 :P

    1. It's better not to plan too much in sending sms. You may Try this: Just send very randomly without thinking too much, infact don't think about the prized Nexus :) It should be like you are getting up in a random morning and get hands on your phone and simply send among one of the wrapper codes; I feel this method has some chances in probability.Best of Luck :)

    1. Hi... I read all the Terms and conditions very carefully on the kitkat site and here also. It clearly says that only 2 prizes will be awarded to all entries between 7pm to 10am and the winners will be declared at 10am. So basically instead of 2 winners each hour it will be 2 winners in 15 hours and in rest 9 hours (10am to 7pm) there will be 18 winners... So if u r a very lucky person you can try at night also :)

    Hi Jerry, According to the Terms and Conditions, the winners are selected via a draw through a random, scientific basis that is conducted each hour from amongst all valid entries received via SMS between 7pm of the previous day till 10 am of the next day during the Program Period.

    Also, as a process the eligible winner names are uploaded basis establishing contact with them. We do face delay in establishing the contact and hence only those names are updated on the winner section of www.android.com/kitkat wherein the contact has been made. Do visit our program website http://www.android.com/kitkat for terms and conditions. We thank you for the interest shown in our brand related activities and assuring you of our best attention at all times.

    Hi Praveen, We'd like to bring to your notice that the winners are selected via a draw through a random, scientific basis that is conducted each hour from amongst all valid entries received via SMS between 7pm of the previous day till 10 am of the next day during the Program Period.


    Pls Vijay explain the draw procedure?

    1. Hey Anon somebody above has already explained it :D But I will explain it once more. From 10.00 am to 7.00 pm the draw takes place every hour on the hour. From 7.00 pm to 10.00 am (during the evening through nite) only 2 winners are chosen. Hope that clears your doubt. The best bet is to send SMS during day time but now with less days left and many people becoming aware of this contest, the competition is sure stiff. May the luck be with you guys :)

      "(vi) The completed Participation Package needs to be sent by registered post with Acknowledgement Due or through courier to the address mentioned below so as to reach within 7 (seven) days of the call made by Agency:"
      Which means that only Registered Post AD and Courier should be used to send the participation package. Now that you have already done it hope for the best :P

    1. Hi Rathin first let me congratulate you :) The second call may come today :P You have to affix Rs.1.00 revenue stamp on the NDC. You can send dox by any courier but try to send it by Bluedart as you can track the shipment.
      Hope this helps, comment any further requirements (c)

  43. Hey Vijay Prabhu,

    Thanks for ur reply. Got the call around 1hr back. He told me to get the xerox for v.id & pan card. I asked about the stamp. He said any amount of Rs.5 or Rs.10 stamp will do. pls tell me the Rs. amount in stamp does really matter? I have both stamp of Rs.1 & Rs.5; which one to put?

    Do I need to cross sign over the stamp?

    I m submitting V.Id card, pan card, the Wrap, the NDC etc. pls suggest wher to sign and all...

    The address in RO has to be the same as V.Id?

    sorry if i bother u by asking too much...

    1. Hi Rathin yep no bother to me :d You have to affix Rs.1.00 revenue stamp which you will get in any Post Office. You have to sign across the revenue stamp. Yes the address in R/o should be same as the id proof you submit. I suggest you add aaddhar card/driving license in addition to the Voter ID. Also remember to self attest them. Regarding NDC you can refer the replies above :)

    2. Hi Manu :) First of all thanks for helping out the other people including me :-)
      About the confirmation dont worry, If your dox have reached Ms.Subarna Nandy, you will get your and I will get my Google Nexus 7 as promised by Google and Nestle (o)

      A request to you Manu, Kindly answer the queries of commentators because I am a bit busy and may not be available on time to solve their problems. You know how fidgety we become when we receive the first call, the same is the case with other. So if you have time kindly take a moment to answer any queries that are posted here (if you dont mind that is) ;)

  49. Hi Vijay , I am also a winner of the Kitkat contest but unfortunately they say they have not received my documents not sure what should I do about it now, as per the courier guys they have received my documents on 17th October and they sent me a email yesterday mentioning they have not received , shall I send again but I dont have the wrapper anymore it is sent to them, Would appreciate if you would let me know once you receive your tab, Thanks and Congratulations to you

    1. Hi Mayur first of congrats :) regarding your query, you email them back on the same address stating your problem and send the remaining dox again sans the wrapper. And wish for mighty luck :P

      Delete
    2. Vijay, there's slight confusion here. Do they or do they not give any intimation about receipt of DOX?, as some winners have reported that the agency contacted them about non-receipt of dox??

      The agency company is having different offices on different floors. When I called up to confirm their contact number, the guy on some other floor did not have any clue about what I am talking (kitkat competition). It would be helpful if we get a direct contact number for enquiries.

  50. Dear Vijayji,
    Will I be getting any intimation from Nestle after they have received the participation package that I have sent.

    Replies
    1. Hi Sidhant congrats :) No they dont send a intimation so I have posted that you send it by bluedart because you get proof of delivery with their nice tracking service. Anyways the dox are a technical formality any organiser has to fulfil to save their backs from possible problems :P
      And wish you and me and all others get our Nexus soon (f)

      Delete
  51. steps to follow if documents not received by Ms Subarna Nandy (Kitkat - Nexus 7)--
    1. Call 0124 4519300 and ask the operator to forward call to Ms subarna Nandy and ask her directly all your queries.
    2. Again mail your all documents(self attested pan card,address proof, NDC form + photocopy of wrapper if available and also put a letter mentioning your reason of not having original wrapper)
    3. If you have by mistakenly speed posted the document - don't worry they will consider it too. If a call comes to you stating that your documents are not received tell them that you have by mistakenly speed posted them and send the documents again (Don't use speed post this tie :p)

  52. They call in case they don't get your documents. If call doesn't come this is itself a confirmation guys. conhrats to all the nexus 7 winners.

    ReplyDelete
  53. To all winners and blog readers, if you have send the dox by Courier (Bluedart preferred) or Registered Post AD of India Post you need not worry about confirmation. If you have sent it through Speed Post you can send the documents against along with the wrapper photocopy (if available) by Courier (remember courier this time) if Nestle emails you the request or calls you back.

    If you do not receive the call, It can be assumed that your dox have been received so you get the Google Nexus 7 (which I hope will be 16GB version) x-)

    1. I believe if our DOX are received at agency office then we won't be called and hopefully we would get Nexus 7 in time. If you see this blog and facebook kitkat page, winners are reporting calls received by them only when there is non-receipt of DOX.

    1. Hi Anon, :) The 2nd SMS stating that you will be contacted in 24 hours comes almost within fifteen minutes after that the call comes where the Rep confirms your name and address :P
      The website may not have been updated due to various reasons, one of them is non confirmation of winners with second call. May of us live in remote places where there is network problem.
      If you read the comments above you will understand how it is :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The contest is very much live! The delay in updating on website is that they are listing only "eligible winners" i.e they will call back after the sms and confirm details and then only they would update on the site. Calling all 20 winners per day (possibly after many trials) would take time.That's it. :)

  68. its not lyk tht. i think u have more chance of winning in 10rs kitkat pack

  69. Vijay is this contest fake or something. lyk why would google go for such a loss.
    because each nexus 7 2013 cost around 16,000, so giving away 1000's of them wud incur a loss of 1.6 crore. i know they are making money from kitkat packs bt it is not as much as 1.6 crore. Right?? So how does this all work

    1. This contest is not Fake. There are big names involved - Google and Nestle Kitkat ! So be assured, its genuine and almost 700 eligible winners are going to get a Nexus 7! :-d

    2. Even if we assume there are total 5 million promo kitkats in India X Rs.10 = 50 Million Rs. (5 crore Rs) + SMS charges (5 crore Rs) = = Rs.10 crore. Now Nexus giveaway would cost them about (790 X Rs.15000)=1.18 crore Rs. So who's gaining?

    I am also a winner of Google Nexus 7. I received the call on 30Oct, sent the docs on 31 Oct, and it reached Gurgaon on 2 Nov (checked through tracking). But I had sent the docs through speed post (bcoz I had asked the person who informed me if we cud send through speed post, and he said yes). I haven't yet recieved any confirmation.

  84. on the fb page, kitkat saying that they will start shipping after 15/11/13 and it will reach by 4 to 6 weeks. which means nearly 1 & half months from tomorrow...

    and dont forget after receiving d dox, their audit team will verify. so doesnt mean sending dox u r entitled to get d nexus 7.

    they have some drama about dox receiving as experienced by few users.

    lets pray for best so that every one who won, should get their tablet without any trouble, including me...
