That all depends on where you live mate. If you live in the UK, then you need to keep an eye on the MSN website this thursday when further info will be announced.

More info can be found here on Gav's thread: http://www.prince.org/msg/7/181603

nice, i posted this EXACT thread yesterday asking it to be submitted separate from the purple ticket thread, and it got deleted confused

at any rate...those of you who were asking questions on the other thread..repost here and I will clarify for you wink

i recall seeing a question about the "second chance postcard" sweepstakes..that applies if all 7 tickets are not claimed. if the first entry for the actual sweepstakes doesnt specify postcard, you dont have to send it on a postcard, any piece of paper should do.

if you sent a postcard that had to be postmarked (not received, there is a difference) by 3/21 for itunes, that is separate from this one..you can now start sending one entry a day for this one.

banana...you need to check your listing above...because you are going to confuse people. the rules above are for the i-tunes sweepstakes, not the cd sweepstakes. they are completely different. two different contests, two different sets of rules. i posted the rules for the cd sweepstakes in a separate thread (locked) as well as on the purple ticket sticky (also locked). i can repost here if you like.....

Yes, please do.

1) The idea of this thread (like all previous stickies) is so you lot can post all the relevant info and help keep it updated. If you think we are here at your beck and call, you're sadly mistaken. We can only post what we know just like you guys, so presumption isn't an option. This is an organic document that will only ever be as informative as you guys want to make it.

2) this thread collates the previous two sticky threads about the purple ticket info (both threads are linked at the bottom of the main post for reference purposes)

3) Yes, I know this is going to be confusing, but I do not have all the information either - I'm actually doing this in a mad rush prior to leaving for work - if you have the information, don't sit on it - post it. I know the above info is for America only, all I know is that the UK MSN website will this week be posting info for UK fans, as previously stated on Gavin from Uptown's thread:
http://www.prince.org/msg/7/181603

Last but not least, whoever locked your thread did so because the info was actually already posted - you make it sound like it was something personal, when that was not the case at all.

So, to reiterate to all...if you have the info/further info/new info JUST POST IT!

Hey, I totally understand the rushing off to work thing, I was doing the same when I posted this morning lol

thanks banana..actually, the information I posted had not yet been posted. I put up a thread with the "official rules for the cd purple ticket contest". and immediately received a PM saying it was locked and to discuss it on the "purple ticket" thread that already existed. I responded asking them to make the new thread a sticky since it contained the new information just released, and wouldn't get buried 10 pages back on the existing sticky, LOL. I even posted a nice pic like above, without the line breaks in it wink

At any rate, here are the official rules for the cd competition (separate and distinct from the i-tunes competition): see post below.

Did anyone think they maybe had the purple ticket and then realize it was the Tamar flyer?

This is key right here:

Upon receipt of a valid Game Play Request (while supplies last), West Coast Marketing, the independent judging organization (“judges”) will break the seal of a specially marked “3121” CD by Prince to see if there is a winning game piece inside. No mechanically reproduced or photocopied requests will be accepted. All Game Play Requests become property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged


If they have to open a cd to enter non-paying costumers I'm guessing the "supplies" won't "last" long at all. I mean how many cd's are they going to waste? I won't even bother wasting the 38 cents.

I don't care who wins as long as it's not that Lisa Barber girl from Wyoming. No one should get that lucky twice.

Is anyone buying multiple copies of 3121 to increase their chances of getting a purple ticket? I figure I've downloaded Black Sweat/BLB on Itunes and bought 3121. Those are my two chances right there. Anything else is chasing the dragon.

Hey Houston buddy. The one on eBay is almost certainly a fake. The seller - who has ZERO feedback - said he/she found it in the trash behind a record store.

save your money lookin for the "purple ticket".
the album is ok, but you can get it free from one of
the music programs.
if u really wanna see wonka..come too new orleans.
mayor nagin already claimed that title from prince.
and besides the people of new orleans, la. and mississippi
can use the money more than prince.
not to take away fron "brand new orleans".
peace..love and all that.

What If the Purple Ticket gets opened by a nonfan?

So, I was sitting at Starbucks yesterday. I was happy they would be selling 3121. However that got me thinking

Starbucks, and other places as well, buy with store debit a copy of the albums they sell to Play in the store.

What happens if some noncaring Starbucks employie opens the purple ticket CD?

Would they know what they had?

Would they fight among themself for it?

Would they send it to coperate?

Would they just discard it? Put it in the trash? Spill Coffee on it?
News: Prince pulls his head out his ass in the last moment.
Bad News: Prince wasted too much quality time doing so.
You have those internalized issues because you want to, you like to, stop.
