I honestly just went through every single combination using all letters and numbers excluding the number zero like this.

M-letter-number
M-number-letter
letter-M-number
letter-number-M
number-letter-M
number-M-letter

And got nothing. So unless something was going wrong with all of the attempts to redeem I was clicking every half a second, this must be a cruel trolling which I didn't anticipate given the TC's history...

And yeah I have no life.

I very highly doubt you went through every possible combination, considering there are thousands and thousands of different combinations.

Did the same, same results. Not even an "Invalid, code has already been redeemed" message either.

I have too much free time for Christmas Eve.


I got the processing circle icon followed by "Please enter a valid code." every time... And sometimes the loading circle took slightly longer or shorter than other times so I'd expect it was genuinely processing it.

I very highly doubt you went through every possible combination, considering there are thousands and thousands of different combinations.


Given how the TC narrowed it down I believe it goes something like this

Each of those 6 possible assigned spots for the characters in question represent this many possible situations

M = 1 possible letter
number = 9 possible numbers
letter = 26 possible letters

You multiple those chances by each other to get 234 possible combinations, and then multiply that by 6 for each positioning I mentioned to get 1,404 possible combinations.

Not thousands.

Ummm no. We are dealing with permutation, not combinations. Even if he narrowed it down a bit, you are still dealing with tens of thousands of different possibilities. If he didn't narrow it down, you would be in the hundreds of thousands.

It's okay, I'm sure you are good at another subject.

There aren't "thousands" of combinations. One of the 3 spots is an M, and the only numbers used in the other spots are 2,3,4,6,7,8 or 9.
