    Did anyone get this to work? The website kept shuting down. Then when it opened it would not accept the verification code. Dockers is getting a huge negative on their facebook page. I hope it worked for someone.

    According to http://www.hubdub.com/m27364/How_many_people_will_watch_Superbowl_XLIII , 98.7 million people watched the Super Bowl last year. Even if only half of those people went to the website and signed up, and even if Dockers could make a pair of pants for $5 base cost, that would be over $246 million dollars worth of pants.

    As it is, the official rules say they're giving away certificates for 2,990 pair which is the retail equivalent of $89,700. I think that's more than generous for a one-time ad promotion.

    Yeah, and I remember THAT was a nightmare last year too. It was in the news that people were being obnoxiously crazy. I'm pretty sure Denny's extended the hours, at least the local ones that made the news here. We won't be anywhere near a Denny's on that day!

    How could you miss it? They must have spent a fortune on Superbowl ads.

    My feelings exactly.

    I remember the news reports from last year too. They interviewed folks who were fuming because they weren't being served in a timely manner. Umm, did the line that stretched all the way down the block not give you a clue as to what your wait time was likely to be?

    I do remember reading an article that said the actual cost of the breakfast is so low, that if even a small percentage of folks who took advantage of the free breakfast eal ordered coffee and/or juice, Denny's would likely break even after paying for the ads.

    I might not be remembering correctly, but I don't think they had as many spots last year as they did this year. They must have felt the promo was successful for them to run it again this year.


    I understand the Dockers website had major problems almost immediately when their ad aired. I had no problem signing up, but we had the game on a delay. If it's a random giveaway I guess I have as good a chance as anyone, if the giveaway is by time of entry I'm sure I'm tough out of luck.

    I agree that this is true. And it is very generous of them. However, the commercial did not imply that it was a chance for free pants. At least I didn't get that idea.

    If I remember correctly, they're also bringing back the free Grand Slam meal for your birthday. I think I'll wait til then.

    Dockers worked for me. I tried a couple of different e-mail addresses. Didn't win any. :sad1:
