HOW TO ENTER: To enter the Sweepstakes, you must have a INSTAGRAM account. If you already have an INSTAGRAM account, sign into your account. If you are not an existing member of INSTAGRAM you will be required to create an account. When you join INSTAGRAM you are indicating that you have read and agree to accept INSTAGRAM Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Use of these third party platforms are governed by these, and other, third party agreements.

Sweepstakes begins at the time the post is posted to Sponsor’s account and ends at the time specified in the post. If no time is specified, it will end exactly five (5) calendar days after the time of posting. All times listed are in Central Time.

To enter, log into your INSTAGRAM account and follow the Entry Requirements detailed on the indicated post. If any entry fails to comply with any of these Entry Requirements or any other provisions of these Official Rules, at the Sponsor’s sole discretion, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify the entrant.

In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the entrant, the post will be considered made by the authorized account owner of the INSTAGRAM account at the time the post was submitted. “Authorized account owner” of an e-mail address is the natural person in whose name the e-mail address has been issued. A selected winner may be asked to provide Sponsor with proof that the selected winner is the registered owner of the said account. If a dispute cannot be resolved, the Submission will be deemed ineligible. Use of automated devices not valid for entry in the Sweepstakes. Sponsor may at its sole discretion disqualify anyone who violates the Official Rules or undermines the integrity of the Sweepstakes by disabling cookies, using any form of automatic entering, or any other form of manipulation.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Once a comment is posted it cannot be changed, altered or modified. The comment (a) may not contain any inappropriate language as solely determined by the Sponsor, (b) may not infringe upon any third party’s rights, including but not limited to copyright, patent or trademarks/tradenames/logos other than Sponsor, or rights of privacy or publicity, or contain material that is or may be considered defamatory, slanderous or libelous, or portray in a false light, and (c) may not violate any law, rule or regulation. Each entrant warrants and represents that his/her comment complies with the conditions set forth in sub-clauses (a) through (c) above. Non-complying Submissions will be subject to disqualification.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Sponsor will conduct a random drawing on the date indicated in the INSTAGRAM post, from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period detailed in post to select the winner. Odds of winning a prize depends on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Winner will be notified via the INSTAGRAM account which the winner entered the Sweepstakes. Winner will have seven (7) days to respond via the e-mail address provided with their name, shipping address, email address, telephone number and birth date to confirm that they are 18 years of age or older. If any prize notification or any prize is returned as undeliverable, the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner. We do not ship to P.O. boxes. All notification requirements, as well as other requirements within these Official Rules, will be enforced.

PRIZE: The prize(s) will be outlined in INSTAGRAM post, along with the Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each prize. If no prize or ARV is presented in the post, (5) 6-Count Stand-Up Pouch Cases – ARP of $150 – will be awarded. Flavors to be chosen at the sole discretion of Sponsor.

Only one prize per person and per household will be awarded. Gift cards and gift certificates are subject to the terms and conditions of the issuer. Prizes cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted by winner. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to award a substitute prize of equal or greater value if the prize described in these Official Rules is unavailable or cannot be awarded, in whole or in part, for any reason. The Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of the prize represents Sponsor's good faith determination. That determination is final and binding and cannot be appealed. If the actual value of the prize turns out to be less than the ARV, the difference will not be awarded in cash. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prize items.

This Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of Eligible Locations and Prize will only be awarded and/or delivered to addresses within said locations.
