    2. either swiping their Onecard or entering their Onecard details at the time of purchase.

Entries will not be accepted on a retrospective basis after the time of purchase.

Entrants will receive one (1) entry in the Draw for the chance to win the Major Prize (defined below) for each purchase of Participating Products in a separate transaction. There is a limit of one (1) entry per transaction.

The Promoter and Prize Provider reserve the right, at their discretion, to remove or to introduce further Participating Products in the CADBURY Easter range during the Promotional Period. 



The winner will be determined by a draw as follows: 

One (1) prize winner will be determined by a random electronic draw from all valid entries received in the promotion, on 01/03/2021. The draw will be conducted by the Promoter. 

  • The winner will be notified by telephone and/or email using the details listed on the Onecard database. If the Promoter is unable to reach the winner by telephone or email, the Promoter will send the winner a letter notifying them. It is up to entrants to ensure that their relevant details on the Onecard database are correct. Details can be updated via the website or by phoning the Countdown Customer Care team on 0800 40 40 40.
  • In the event the winner cannot be contacted, (that is, cannot be reached by telephone and/or does not respond to email) within three (3) business days of the prize draw, we will send the winner a letter giving a further two (2) weeks from the date of the letter to get in touch with us. If we still do not get a response following our letter, a winner will be redrawn on the same terms as the original draw.

The winner will have their details published on the Countdown website for two (2) weeks following the draw date, and may also be advertised on the Promoter’s and/or Prize Provider’s social media accounts. By accepting a prize, the winner consents to their name and/or photograph being used for such publicity purposes as reasonably determined by the Promoter or the Prize Provider.

Prize and Selection Event 


The winner or their nominated proxy (plus one companion who must be 18 years or older) will be flown to Auckland (flights not included for Auckland residents) for the chance to play to win the Major Prize (defined below) at the Selection Event. 

The Winner will be given the chance to choose one (1) egg from a basket of twenty (20) eggs. Each of the twenty (20) eggs will correlate to twenty (20) pre-seeded envelopes. One (1) egg /envelope will contain the $100,000 NZD Major Prize and all nineteen (19) remaining eggs /envelopes will contain a $10,000 NZD Major Prize.  The winner/proxy must only choose one (1) egg/envelope without touching, handling or interfering in any way with any of the other eggs on display.  If the winner is found to have breached this condition, they will be disqualified.  

The winner may appoint a proxy over 18 years of age to attend and participate in the Selection Event on their behalf provided the winner gives the Promoter enough written notice prior to the Selection Event.  In the event that a nominated proxy participates in the Selection Event on the winner’s behalf, the winner agrees to accept all decisions made by the nominated proxy and no correspondence will be entered into.  The nominated proxy agrees that the Major Prize awarded (either $100,000 NZD or $10,000 NZD) will only be awarded to the original drawn winner and the proxy will not be compensated in any way.  If the winner or their proxy can’t attend the Selection Event in person, then the original drawn winner can participate via phone or video conference and a representative of the Promoter and Prize Provider will participate in the Selection Event virtually on behalf of the winner.

The Prize Provider may at its absolute discretion prohibit an entrant’s participation in this promotion, cancel or suspend a prize or otherwise cease to provide any prize to a winner if the winner, nominated proxy (or any companion) does not follow the Prize Provider’s instructions for participation at the Selection Event or is (in the Prize Provider’s opinion) under the influence of alcohol or drugs, behaves aggressively or disruptively, or behaves in a manner which may diminish the good name and reputation of the Prize Provider or its products and brands, or is contrary to law or is otherwise inappropriate.



Travel includes: 

  1. return economy flights for the winner and their companion from the winner’s closest NZ regional airport to Auckland (not included for Auckland residents);

  4. a bottle of Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut;

If the trip can be safely taken based on government travel advice, and the winner elects not to travel for the selection, they will forfeit the travel component of the prize and no substitute will be offered.  For the avoidance of doubt, if the winner or their proxy (and companion) are, for whatever reason, unable to travel on the nominated date, whether the failure was due to reasons beyond the winner's control or otherwise (unless due to official COVID-19 related restrictions), and they can’t attend the Selection Event virtually with a representative of the Promoter and Prize Provider, then the winner will forfeit the Major Prize.

If any element of the promotion (including the Selection Event) is not capable of running as planned due to official COVID-19 Government restrictions, the Promoter and Prize Provider may, at their sole discretion, use reasonable endeavours to award the Major Prize by alternative means, this may include holding a virtual Selection Event by video conference or a change to the Selection Event date.  All decisions relating to changes to the Promotion and Selection Event due to COVID-19 restrictions are at the sole discretion of the Promoter and Prize Provider and no correspondence will be entered into.



There is one (1) Major Prize to be won (in addition to the travel components supplied to enable the winner to attend the Selection Event).  The value of the Major Prize is either $100,000 NZD or $10,000 NZD as determined by the outcome of the Selection Event.  The Major Prize cash value will be awarded by electronic transfer directly into the winner’s nominated bank account within 28 days of the winner providing their account details.  The Major Prize (including all components of travel required to attend the Selection Event) is not transferable or exchangeable, unless otherwise agreed by the Prize Provider in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
