    this is copied over from what I literally just entered:

    [top]Congratulations! You WON!

    [top](pending verification)
    No really, we’re not kidding.



    • You are a WINNER of a PlayStation®Vita 3G/Wi-Fi system with:
    • Little Deviants™ Game Card
    • 4GB PS Vita Memory Card

    but I don't know what they need to verify.....and I haven't received anything else in my email......anyone else have any luck?? I've never won a contest in my life....so obviously I feel like it's shady (but it's directly from Taco Bell's website) and the first time I entered a code it said, "sorry, next time...blah blah..and this time, (only my 2nd entry) I get that message.........help! I want it!

    So, it's not saying something about "Click here to verify" or anything about putting personal details. Have you checked if the e-mail you got look legit? I should try and enter as well. Don't really want to spend money on this console yet so might as well get it for free, lol

    Satiety, it wasn't an Email - after the "congrats, you won" notice, I had to fill out my personal details (email, name address, etc) this is directly from the Taco Bell sites 'Official Rules" that I clicked on - If i'm reading it correctly it sounds like I/we should be getting something in the US mail that way they can verify our mailing address? I'm gonna keep my eyes on my mailbox (obv) and i'll post back if I hear/see/receive anything!

    1. INSTANT WIN PRIZE CLAIMS: Online: Each potential winner will be notified instantly and will be redirected required to complete an online claim form by providing his or her name, date of birth, email address and mailing address. If a potential winner navigates away from the Prize claim form page for any reason before submitting the completed form, he/she will not be able to return to the Prize claim form and the prize will be forfeited and included in the pool of prizes for the Second Chance Drawing (see below). SMS: Each potential winner who receives a prize winning message on their cell phone will be asked to reply with a valid email address so that an address verification message may be sent. All Prizes must be claimed by March 29, 2012 or the prize will be forfeited and included in the pool of prizes for the Second Chance Drawing (see below). No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the unlikely event that winning messages are distributed in numbers greater than the number stated in these rules for such prize level, that stated number of winners will be selected in a random drawing from among all verified prize claims received.

    Any updates from you winners?

    Also, what are good strategies? For example, if I hold onto my code and enter it at like 6am EST thinking that nobody else is playing, would that help?

    I've played three times and each time it instantly tells me I lost. How exactly does this work? Is it the first person in each 15 minute cycle? If so, they probably don't tell you when the cycle begins...but it's obviously not "okay, 402 people entered in the past 15 minutes, so we draw a number out of a hat and give it to this guy".

    Maybe it's a "the 17th person to enter during this 15 minute cycle wins"?

You should expect you PS Vita™ in one of these shipments. You should receive a notification letter, as these will sent via First Class Mail to the prize winners. Unfortunately, I have provided you with the extent of the information that we have here about the promotion. If you would like more details, confirmation, etc; you will need to contact Taco Bell, and they will be able to provide further details.

    Hello! I am aware of your current promotion that Sony has with Taco Bell for the "win the PS Vita!" Well, on Monday I entered a code via the instructions (this is after receiveing roughly 3 or 4 'error code' messages)...and finally, it accepts my code and I get the "Congrats, you are a winner and it says, and I quote, (seriously, we aren't kidding, pending verification). It then prompted me to fill outmy name, email, address, date of birth, etc...and, now i'm just wondering what exactly I have to do....there was nothing further after that communication. I haven't received an email, so I don't know what it is that I need to do. I still have the code that I used to enter the contest......I honestly just want to be sure that I did, in fact, win one of these systems! Since then, I have entered 2 more codes and i've gotten the instantly "sorry, not a winner" message....so, I know that that's not the issue....any help would be appreciated. Thank you!!

    Nope, I called T. Bell on the day that I won and they basically said they had limited info and gave me even less information than Sony - they said i should 'watch my email' but, I haven't gotten anything. I'm going to keep an eye on my mail, and it sounds like I should be getting something in the next day or so......

    Well, good luck, and make sure to check your spam filter!

    The rules say you can write a letter to Taco Bell and request a list of all the winners. I'm considering doing that is they say they've given over 700 away so far.

    I am currently 0 for 4 though

    Can you enter the same code more than once? I've only entered one through my cell phone as a text. Never told me that I won. Never told me that I lost either though. It asked me if I was 18. I said yes. And then the next message I got just said "You already entered for today. Please try again tomorrow.".

    I was fortunate enough to stop by my mom and dads for lunch when I noticed the box in the garbage. I looked at it and thought it would be cool to have one. I text in the number and it said I won. They asked for my email, I sent it, they said they got it and to check my inbox. No email from them. I have not had the opportunity to enter in my house address or whatever other information they need. I called up taco bell and they said that it will take a few days for the email to process so just wait for that. I also asked if they had other calls about this issue and she told me that yes, other people that have txt and won have not received the email. I told her that's promising...i think. I entered the code Wednesday around noon, called TB 8 o'clock that evening. Going on 2 days now, and ready to punch a taco.

    HAHA punch a taco.

    On a side note, TB says they've given away over 700 units. Since they've been running the contest for 8 days, 8 days x 24 hours x 4 units per hour = 768 units.

    Well, unless that's a lie too (I'm sure it's not), they're doing what they set out to do...just making it confusing to claim your prize, it seems.

    Got the same email at 2. Called and told my mom and she's mad at me because she threw it away and I punched the number in and one. Happy to see this message is out. I'm now ready to eat a taco.
