We've heard your feedback on prior mail-in programs this year, and given that some people are shopping more online, we wanted to be sure to be inclusive to everyone. Though some of our materials were printed prior to the decision being made, both sets of rules will be honored to the benefit of the collector. Therefore whether you buy 20 cars or you buy $20 worth, you can redeem for the ’65 Volkswagen Fastback.
- Mail a) your original (no photocopies) cash register and/or online receipt(s) dated from June 14, 2020 to August 7, 2020, b) blister cards (the entire cardboard piece, but not the car or plastic window) or UPC codes from multipacks for each Promotional Vehicle you are requesting (limit of 10 (ten) Promotional Vehicles per person, household and/or address), c) the completed order form (PROMOTION HAS ENDED, but submissions will be honored through 8/14 postmark date, per printed materials), and d) a check or money order (unless you pay online via credit card) payable to Mattel, Inc. for $4.99 US shipping and processing for each vehicle you order:
’65 Volkswagen Fastback Vehicle
P.O. Box 1229
East Aurora, NY 14052
PLEASE NOTE: All requests must be postmarked by 8/11/20 and received by 8/18/20. The completed mail-in order form must accompany your request.
NOTE: Packing slips for Target.com orders will not be accepted as proof of purchase; you must send the online receipt you received when the order was processed.
Although you may purchase your qualifying basic cars on separate receipts within the Promotional Period, there is a limit of 1 (one) Promotional Vehicle for every $20 of basic cars or multipacks within the Promotional Period, regardless of how many receipts those cars are on. Offer is limited to 10 (ten) ’65 Volkswagen Fastback vehicles per person, household, and/or address.
