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.

Actually, it's both...

Okay, so what happens if Target has a sale on HW Mainlines for .50 each, like Dollar General, and Kroger did? Is it still 20 cars, or do you have to buy 40 cars for the one ’65 Volkswagen Fastback?

So if it does go on sale, you would just need to purchase 20 cars. Let's say....theoretically if they were a penny each it would only cost you twenty cents for one '65 Volkswagen Fastback.  I shopped at Target today and grabbed an "Official Rules" sheet that could be found in the Hot Wheels isle and it says "20 cars". On this website they stated $20. 

 

Mattel has acknowledged their mistake in printing and will honor the "20 car" mail in regardless of the purchase price.

Are 5 packs considered "Multi-packs"? or is a "Multi-pack" only a 9er/10er or 20er?

It would be great if my targets in Pleasanton, CA and Dublin, CA would get new cases of cars to complete this mail because we desperately need them. It seems like my targets are always 2 steps behind in receiving the newest thing and on top of that never get team transports anymore please for all that is worth send a bunch of new stuff to these locations so I can do this mailin! Side note: still dont know where the Dollar General Skyline Van is starting to feel my order has been lost into the mail haven't heard a single word on whats happening.

One of the Targets in my area has had pegs jammed full of older releases for many months now, so I'm not expecting them to put out anything new for awhile.

Another Target had 5 (count 'em, 5) cars on the pegs for many months, so I kept checking that one. They finally put some cars out.....E case. (yes, E case!)

So, it'll be a guessing game as to when they may put out anything new. 

I did manage to buy a new 5 pack and a new 9 pack, so, I'm at least part of the way towards a mail in VW.

During the Promotion Purchase Period from June 14, 2020 to August 7, 2020 buy $20 (before taxes) of Hot Wheels® 1:64 basic cars or multipacks from 2016 to present assortment numbers GBG98, GBG99, GBH00, GBH01, GKF40, GKF41, GLP55, FDR46, FDR47, FDR48, FDR49, FLW18, FLW19, FLW20, FLW21, DLP30, DNC66, C4982, L2593, 5785, 1806, H7045, X6999, and CGN22 from participating Target stores

 

I know for a fact that 1806 is a 5 pack (fast and furious), because I bought one that I'll be using for the mail in. 

And x6999 is a 9 pack.

I thought the Bone Shakers were part of this round of reds. didn't find any Shelbys. (and probably won't find any Bone Shakers)

At the top on step number two (under the first-to-market releases), click the Completed Order Form link and enter your CC info there.

Hi, so I worked out that no Western Australian Target Stores are included in your promotions so does that mean we can't mail in for the beautiful metallic purple girl?

If you ordered 2 on the same order form then yes the total is what matters not how many receipts they are on. you can also do 2 different mail in's in the same box (like the monza and vw) if you rubber band the order form to the cards that go with them and put the bar codes from both orders on the front of the package( i called and asked them that is how they told me to do two orders in the same box.)

I just tried to fill out the order form for this mail in, entered all the info on all the pages just to get to the page you print, only to be told it's Down For Maintenance.

It would have been nice to see that info on the first page, so as not to have done all that for nothing.

So Mattel, How About Fixing That??

 

Oh, all you guys complaining about the pegs in your local Target stores being empty or having old case cars on them, try living on Maui, we are 2 to 3 months behind at times on new cases, both at Target and Wal-Mart, you lucky you guys. There are lots of collectors here too.
