    I wonder if I can get more than the max entries again, like I did last year...

    Also, MYTH BUSTED! Watch the video.

    You REALLY need to watch today's video:

    MADvent 2013 - 25 days of prizes and free sweets for all entrants!

    We keep it fair here at VeryPC - each draw is completely random as always.

    You can still max your MADvent, but no-one will be able to break the max.

    There'll be another opportunity for bonus entry coming next week.

    Confused?

    Did anyone else find the first part of the video confusing? I did, and it was about me!
    Must be due to my age...

    Talk about rubbing our noses in it! TWICE you won in Stock2ber! (Does that sound a little Yoda-esque?)

    Guess what I've just found in my pigeon hole from Royal Mail...

    "Unfortunately we can't deliver your item because there is a fee to pay"
    "The sender didn't pay the full postage (includes a £1 handing fee)"
    "Payment due: £1.41"

    I wonder what it could be??? :/

    You're right, it is from me, and the postage mistake is entirely my boo-boo. If you haven't already, don't pay the fee as it is not worth it.

    See my earlier response:

Don't pay it please - there are only a small handful of chewy sweets in each envelope, so it is not worth it.

    If you get one of these demands from the post office, or your package has not turned up yet, please do let me know though so I can get some more sent to you with the appropriate postage on this time!

    @VeryPC - Received a £1.41 undeliverable item card today. Wasn't expecting anything from you guys as I've already had my Intel i3 gobstopper, my 'Bring Me The Box' Stocktober2 t-shirt and my Hello Kitty Advent calendar. Unless you have been particularly generous and sent out some chewy, sweetie-type things as well...
