IMPORTANT: Message and data rates may apply for each text message sent or received. Not all mobile telephone providers carry the service necessary to participate in this Contest. Entrants should consult their wireless provider’s pricing plans. Consent not a condition of purchase. An entrant may, at any time, choose to stop participating in this Contest by sending an opt-out text message stating “STOP” to the Short Code. If an entrant sends an opt-out text message, he/she will be sent a reply text message, which will confirm that he/she has been unsubscribed and will receive no further text messages. For help, text the word “HELP” to the Short Code. Each Text Message Entry must be manually key-stroked/entered by the entrant.

3. Random Drawing
On or about the Random Drawing Dates set forth in Section 2, the Sponsor will randomly select one potential “Prize Winner” from among all eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period. There will be one winner from each of the thirteen entry periods for a total of thirteen winners. Each winner is considered a potential winner pending verification of his or her eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.
There is a limit of one prize per person or household for the entire Contest. In no event will more than the stated number of prizes be awarded. If, for any reason, more than the stated number of notifications are sent (or more claims are received), Sponsor reserves the right to award the intended number of prizes through a random drawing from among all eligible prize claims received. All other costs and expenses not expressly set forth herein shall be solely the winner’s responsibility.
The odds of winning a prize depends on the number of eligible Contest entries received during the applicable Entry Period as well as eligible Contest entries received during prior Entry Periods that are carried forward.
5. How to Claim a Prize
Potential Prize Winners are subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Potential Prize Winners will be notified by telephone (if entered via Text Message Entry) or e-mail (if entered via Mail-In Entry or purchase) after the Random Drawings with instructions on how to claim their prize. A potential Prize Winner may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (except where prohibited) and any other requested documents within 5 calendar days from the date of attempted notification or the prize may be forfeited in its entirety and awarded to an alternate winner, at the Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. Failure to provide all required information and a signature on any requested documents within the stated time period may result in forfeiture of a Prize Winner’s right to claim a prize, and may result in the prize being awarded to an alternate winner. If a potential Prize Winner is disqualified, found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, or declines to accept a prize, the prize may be forfeited. If the prize is forfeited, the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries for the applicable Entry Period, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If, after a good-faith attempt, Sponsor is unable to award or deliver a prize, the prize may not be re-awarded. Prizes will only be awarded to verified winners.
Sponsor will attempt to notify each potential winner as set forth above, but Sponsor is not responsible for any undelivered e-mails or unanswered telephone calls, including e-mails that are not received because of a winner’s privacy or spam filter settings which may divert any Contest e-mail, including any winner notification e-mail, to a spam or junk folder. Prizes that are unclaimed, unredeemed, or returned as undeliverable will not be awarded. Prizes are non-transferable and no prize substitution, exchange or cash equivalent will be allowed, except by Sponsor at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. Contest Entities shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the prize for any reason.
Each Prize Winner agrees to authorize Sponsor, the Contest Entities and their designees to use his or her names and/or likenesses and photographs of the Prize Winner and his or her Qualifying Product for advertising, publicity and promotional purposes in any media without further compensation or territorial or temporal restriction. Upon Sponsor’s request, each Prize Winner will provide consent to such use in writing as a condition for the receipt of his or her prize.
Each Prize Winner is responsible for paying any and all taxes on any prize received. Prize Winners may be required to complete and return any necessary tax documents prior to the issuance of a prize, including a W-9 form and/or provide a social security or taxpayer ID number. Prize Winners should consult a qualified tax advisor regarding any questions or concerns regarding tax liability.
