Today Frito-Lay finally announced the Grand Prize winner of the Name the Skylander contest they held earlier this year. That winner is High Five.
We also found out today that Frito-Lay is starting up another “instant-win” giveaway soon.
The prize? You guessed it: High Five.
This High Five giveaway is being run EXACTLY like the Fire Bone Hot Dog giveaway. There are two ways to enter:
3. TWO (2) WAYS TO PLAY:
(a) Mobile Phone/Tablet: During the Game Period, purchase any specially-marked Frito-Lay Classic Mix or Flavor Mix variety pack (while supplies last). Use your smart phone or other web-enabled device with data plan to download the free Blippar application (“App”) from the Apple App Store (IOS Download: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/blippar/id410604563?mt=8) or the Google Play Store (Android Download: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.blippar.ar.android&hl=en). Once the App has been downloaded on your smart phone or other web-enabled device, launch the App. Scan the back of the bag with Blippar's in-app scanner and then follow the App instructions to input your first name, last name, date of birth, email address, and zip code. If your mobile phone or tablet screen displays a winning prize message, you are a winner of a prize (subject to verification). The message will also provide next steps to claim your prize. If your mobile phone or tablet screen displays a non-winning prize message, you are not a winner of a prize. Message and data rates may apply.
(b) Call Toll-Free: To play without making a purchase, call toll-free 1-866-861-4528 and follow the automated instructions to play for a chance to win a prize (also a “Play”). Callers will be required to provide their phone number, including their area code, and date of birth (as two digits for month, two digits for day, and four digits for year) to verify eligibility. If you are a winner of a prize, you will hear a voice message indicating that you have won (subject to verification). The message will also provide next steps to claim your prize. If you are not a winner of a prize, you will hear a voice message indicating that you did not win a prize.
The only major difference is that this giveaway will run for much longer than the Fire Bone Hot Dog giveaway. It starts on October 13, 2014 and ends on December 31, 2014.
They are still giving away one prize for every 15 minutes of the contest so there will be significantly more prizes that in the Fire Bone Hot Dog giveaway.
4. PRIZE DETAILS/ODDS: Prizes (7,680; one  awarded for every fifteen  minutes of the Game Period): One (1) Skylanders® High Five character. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): $9.99 each. Winners must accept prize as stated by Sponsor or prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate potential winner. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Plays received and the time in which they are received. Total ARV of all prizes is $76,723.20. Limit four (4) Skylanders® High Five character prizes per person/household.
While it's always nice to win a free Skylander, I don't think you'll have to worry too much if you don't win. High Five should be available in stores sometime in 2015 (after the conclusion of the Frito-Lay giveaway).

While we're talking about giveaways, I'd like to take a moment to remind you that there is a SCL Giveaway going on right now. Check out this article for more information and to find out how to enter.
