If you have joined it's worth logging on today for a 200 point survey.

Wish I'd taken more notice of this now, it looks like it was a good little earner -does not seem to be any weekly games :confused:

But I did the survey and now have 800 spud points - I am living the dream :D

There is a link to the games on the page after you log in - top centre of the page. You'll soon hit 1000 spud points and be living the dream for real.

I have just ordered a ?20 Amazon voucher from this promotion. It has taken quite a long time for me to reach this amount as I am very irregular in logging into the McCain website. I go there mostly for the MOCs.

Thanks Markat for posting about the survey.

You need to register and earn points at the McCain website. They have spud shillings for joining, doing survey, playing games, posting on FB etc.

i have joined and done a couple of surveys, i thought you got points for buying chips etc

why did you have to enter something on the phone then heather??

markat
27th May 2011, 14:24
To redeem a voucher they text you a code hence the need to enter a mobile number.

I now have over a thousand :clap2: but I think I am going to try and get two thousand and go for the ?20 Marks voucher as being the most usefull.

Just hope the scheme keeps going long enough :D

I was thinking of getting a ?10 Bella Italia voucher - love the cheesy garlicy breadsticks and the huge ice cream dessert and together these come to just over ?10. But we went a few days ago and the menu has changed and no more cheesy garlicy bread sticks :eek:

I have had an invite to do the 200 point survey three times but it only seems to register the points from the 1st time I did it :mad:

Me too - but I have just found out they give 50 points to "refer a friend" and 20 to upload a photo of somewhere you'be been so that will help! I am aiming for a ?20 voucher too. They do seem to have lots of problems with points not being added though. I also noticed a new Whack the Pinata game last week if you have not done that one!

I found the place to add photos but it wont let me upload one - I can send them any number of Norway photos!

But where is the "refer a friend" section?

Pinata game is another annoying one, make sure you ahave the sound turned down.

There is also a monthly competion with 10 points and needless to say mine have not gone straight on :(

Yes I reckon its going to be 20 weeks before I get to 2 thousand :D

I don't know where the refer a friend section is but I saw it listed in the "ways to earn spud shillings". I will let you know when I find out. It let me add a photo and the points for that went on but I don't think the competition ones did for me either.

This is from McCain:

The FAQ?s are a bit confusing and we?re looking at changing the wording as you can?t recommend a friend to our site. However, what you can do is share material on our site with your friends. You do this by clicking on the share icon when you see it. So for example, you may see a recipe you like on our site and choose to share that with a friend ? this will earn you 50 spud shillings.

Just printed a receipe and my balance went up by 50 points !
They really don't seem to know what they are doing do they, when I ordered a ?10 voucher 3 x ?10 turned up.

teatowell
16th August 2011, 19:24
This site is a nightmare for me - if I play the games I only get points for the pirst one I play, even if I do all of them, and for me opening and closing isn't enough either.

Just tried the print recipe thing - got 10 points but again only for the first one I did.

Complained to McCain a couple of weeks ago about points not being added on and they gave me 10 saying that was all I had missed!

Can't ever see me getting enough points for a voucher at this rate.

Great tip. I didnt even do the actual printing bit, forgot to put paper in but still got 10 points. Up to 1600 now :clap2:

400 to go so thats 30 per week doing the games - 10 weeks. just have to find another 100 points from somewhere

Still struggling to get the photo uploaded so I send a message and I got this reply back within the hour.

Needless to say I still cant get it uploaded, I click in the right place and everything just freezes so I am going to let her know again.

The ladies contact details are at the bottom if anyone else has a query.

The odd thing is if it freezes on me I just shut everything down and then reload, always having to do this and oddly my points jumped to 1750 - 150 points up :eek: No idea why - I have clicked on the facebook logo and also tweeted so maybe something worked there :der:

"Thanks for your email. I?m sorry to hear you?re having trouble uploading a photo on our site.
I?ve just tried to doing the same and it won?t work if you click on the image ?upload your photo?. However, if you click to the right of it (see attached file ? where yellow arrow is) it will open a ?choose file? dialogue box.

I?m going to let our agency know who look after the site so they can fix this problem.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

If you have any further problems please let me know.
Kind regards

They really don't seem to know what they are doing do they, when I ordered a ?10 voucher 3 x ?10 turned up.

Well, I ordered 2 vouchers for ?10 each and what I received was just one for ?10. When I queried that, McCains responded that the account balance should have been 1xxx instead of 2xxx. I was extremely unhappy as I hadn't bothered to keep a printout of the redemption screen. So, anyone redeeming vouchers, please do a screen-capture so that you can have valid proof to present in case such a scenario arises.

I have no idea what happened but I was messing around so much on the Mccains website last week, trying different things out, playing the games and downloading receipes etc. So I had it on my "to do" list this week along with the usual and never ending code entry things - Ocean Spray, This water, Nestle go free codes, coke codes, Appletiser codes etc etc

So I logged into Mccains finally and my total had leapt up to over two thousand so I have claimed my Marks voucher :clap2:

Dont know how long it takes to come but it is going to be very useful for a dine in weekend when it does!

So it might be worth checking your poitns this week

As usual I cant rep Mark

I've got 2 lots pending and ordered a couple of weeks back

mhoc
3rd September 2011, 09:05
NO mine was stuck, when I did the games ntohing seemed to happen so I emailed them and they said it has to be the full seven days before you can do the games again. She also said you can only get the receipes once.

But its worth retweeting becuase it does look like you do get extra points for this. I do all of the usual and then log out and log back in to see what has happened.

So you have 2 accounts - do you use 2 computers and 2 different email addresses?

Thank you for confirming its been driving me nuts . I thought I must have it wrong as the text with the pin doesnt arrive. Maybe its my PC. I'll try at work tommorrow . Oh , and my balance has jumped from 300 to 960 ::clap2:

Edit ,as I now know the number was being entered correctly I have tried ordering a different voucher instead and it has worked. It wouldnt work on the ?5 Topshop so I have ordered the ?5 Miss Selfridge instead. Also like mhoc my account had been stuck - at 250 points for weeks no matter what i did. So I opened a new account in my daughters name (hence the Miss Selfridge voucher) and a few days later it jumped to 960.

Six days, but maybe they have to post your marks voucher, whereas amazon was emailed.

I'm still waiting for my vouchers, does say 28 days on website, but I must be getting near to the 28 days now.

Edit: Just looked back on this thread and ordered on 16th then again on 24th August

How did you manage to collect at least 1000 spud shillings in 8 days?
Wow! I am a slow coach in this collection. I have managed only 2 redemptions over a period of 1 year.

Yes mine has had another big leap today, didnt do much last week. I think I am going to hang on for another ?20 Marks voucher but there again it would be very useful to have ?20 of Premier Inn vouchers ....

Have you received your vouchers in post yet Mhoc???

No, not here yet but I've sent them an email now. Another reason for dithering - at least when a Marks voucher gets here I can use it anytime.

But I would need Premier Inn vouchers to be here before the start of November and if they were delayed I am not sure wether I'd use them. It would be very neat though if I did get premier Inn vouchers as we have a stay booked for the night before we go away.

Last year I put a deposit down (about half the value) for a holiday using the last of my Tesco deals - the ones swapped over just before it went to 3 x value. Then from the start of this year to August I saved all the odd bits of unexpected money - free shopping from DTD, JTD and APG vouchers, MOCs, conditional spends, winning cheques, other odd gift cards, Quidco, Ebay and Amazon etc and this came to over ?2 thousand :clap2: So that covered our expenses from the holiday in May and last week I sent off the final cheque for the November holiday balance. Ok, I dont really count it as a free holiday, took a lot of work and accounting but even so quite an achivement.

So an almost free Premier Inn stay the night before we set off with a Bella Italia meal mostly paid for with deals would be a neat finish :clap2:

Well done on your saving, mhoc!

I've just received my first ?20 Amazon voucher. Don't know why the points keep going up, but I'm happy to have them. The Amazon voucher will be added to the Christmas stash of vouchers and cash, amassed in similar ways to mhoc's holiday fund.

I get 2 different points-total whenever I login to my McCain Spud shillings account. I had bookmarked the earlier http://www.mccainitsallgood.co.uk site and when I login through that I get an inflated total whereas through the current link I get a vastly reduced total.

Is there anyone who is facing the same problem? I want to redeem through the first link. Will they honour that redemption?

Thanks for your kind replies.

I have been waiting for a voucher since 9th September. I have e-mailed several times since the 28 days were over and received numerous apologies. I then received an e-mail saying that they have been assured that my voucher will be with me by 28th October. On the 4th November I e-mailed again saying that the 28th October had gone and still no voucher. On 6th November I received an appology saying they are aware there are delays and that it has not been overlooked and could I please allow 28 days for them to send it. So even if I get it in 28 days that will be 3 months since ordering. Not good:(

I log on via Safari and it is much quicker than IE8. I started off with a zero total and got up to 85 - is this the max you can get in a week?

At this rate the next Marks voucher will be a long time coming :D

No :confused: But in theory I could set up another account and always access this on the laptop (not sure if this would have a different IP address?) How much of an idiot am I just having one account :D Just worried that they would pick up on more than one aqccount at the same address.

I think I am having a brain dead day ....

Yes I logged on again and it was the pinata game I missed so that brought me up to 90.

But then I had another play around, downlaoded a receipe, tweeted again and then I went to download a video on the Mccains family room "days out" section - I did a picture of one of our cats. I think it might have been the last activity that did it but I am now up to 110 spud shillings :clap2:

can i ask how many accounts every one has please (pm me if you want)
i have one for me and one for mum , so 2 different addys to send vouchers to, but only 1 computer and 1 mobile
(just using 2 different email addresses)
i don't want to get banned!

This is what worries me as well. So far just one account but in theory I could use 2 other addresses. I could in theory log onto the site via a variety of computers and laptops.

OH was very impressed with the weekends shop at Marks using my Mccains ?20 voucher which came very quickly and a red ?5 Marks conditional spend so I got the shop down to ?12, very impressive getting a ?20 Marks voucher every five months for the sake of 15 minites playing the games and downloading receipes each week

I cant get the points for printing the recipe. Do you have to print a different one each week?

I think so, some weeks I get no points until I try and find a new recipe - worth trying a couple if the first one does not give 10 points.

Does anyone know which day of the week you can play the games again? I thought I played on Sunday and I thought Monday was the new week but I have tried today and no points are being added when I play a game or tweet.

i am thinking of getting premier inn vouchers with my macain rewards
can anyone tell me please
can you use more than one at a time? premier inn rooms are usually ?29 i think, i have asked before but i;m still not sure, when you book a room how does this work please , i am thinking that i would take the vouchers with me when i stay and pay then? (do you not pay on credit card when you book a room?)
or have the vouchers also got an online code?
i don't want to get them if i can only use one at a time you see, i was thinking of using them in 3's so the room would be free (well cash free)

Markat is best person to answer this but I'm sure you pay with the vouchers when you vacate room...

thank you sandi, the idea has been scrapped and i'll stick to travelodge and try and get the ones i want in the sale
i had the idea that they were all ?29 for a room (i must have misunderstood lenny henry lol!) they are quite a lot dearer
the only time i'v got vouchers i'v opted for halfords (which are actually the same as they are leisure vouchers) and i'v saved them for oil etc for the car
i'm going to go for m and s now

You hand over your leisure vouchers on arrival and they recalculate your bill. Used a lot on my last mini break. Worked just fine but receptionist did not know how to process them but she let us into our room until she got it sorted.

You can use leisure vouchers for hotel hippo too.

Just book and pay online and then post off your vouchers to hotel hippo and they will refund back to your card. ( Not sure whether you can get cashback too - mine has tracked, but not confirmed yet.)

McCain's have changed some of the points I think.

You get 20 points for printing a recipe and you only get 25 points for tweeting now. The games still give you 5 points each though.

Has anyone else found any new points recently?

Been wondering why I got fewer points last week and this week. Mystery solved! Thanks, houseofcash.

Haven't seen any new points, but there's some kind of McCain's game or comp on Facebook where you can win money.
