Email entrants are not required to document or earn points in order to be eligible to win a prize.

Limit one (1) entry per Event participant or email entrant for each tier level for which an entrant is eligible for the duration of the Sweepstakes (i.e., no entrant may win more than one prize in any single tier level, but it is possible for a single entrant to win one prize from each tier level for which the entrant is eligible). Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Sponsor will randomly select a specified number of winners for each tier level for which an entrant is eligible from among eligible entries on or about April 25, 2022 but in no event later than five (5) business days after the close of the Sweepstakes Period.

At the time of pick up or prior to mailing, as the case may be, winners will be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Publicity Release. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to entrants’ email or mailing addresses after the date on which they enter the Sweepstakes. A winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be selected if the selected winner fails to comply with these rules, cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to reply to the winner notification as requested, or fails to claim the prize in a timely fashion.
