PROMOTION PERIOD: The Giveaway begins on August 29, 2023 and ends at 11:59:59 PM ET on November 29, 2023 (the “Promotion Period”). Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Giveaway.
TWO WAYS TO ENTER:
Entry via an Online Purchase: Internet connection required. During the Promotion Period, eligible entrants will receive one (1) entry for every $1 USD spent on eligible purchases made online at www.bubblegumkids.com (the “Website”). The number of entries you receive will be based on the list price of your eligible purchase (excludes discounts, sales tax, and shipping charges) and will be rounded up to the nearest dollar. Purchasers of gift cards will receive one entry for every $1 spent, based on the face value amount of the gift card purchased, e.g., a $50 gift card purchase will garner 50 entries. Purchases made using a gift card are not eligible to receive entries; however, a purchase that exceeds the gift card value will be eligible to receive entries based on the balance due after the gift card is applied to the item purchased (e.g., a $60 USD eligible purchase using a $50 gift card will garner 10 entries). Your purchase transaction must be received by 11:59:59 PM ET on November 29, 2023 to be eligible to receive entries. No limit on the number of entries received with a purchase. By entering via the Website, you consent to receive email marketing communications from the Sponsor.
ENTRY MULTIPLIER: Throughout the Promotion Period, the Sponsor may announce opportunities to increase the number of automatic online purchase entries you may earn by a multiplier, e.g., (2X), (5X), (10X) (each an “Entry Multiplier”). When an Entry Multiplier is offered, entries will be multiplied by the applicable Entry Multiplier. For example, a $20 USD purchase during a 10X Entry Multiplier offer will earn 200 entries. Timing for an Entry Multiplier offer will be determined solely by the Sponsor and will be announced on the Website and/or on its social media pages.
No Purchase Required - Mail-In Method of Entry: To receive five (5) entries without making any kind of purchase, on a plain piece of 3”x5” paper, hand print your complete first and last name, street address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy), e-mail address plus daytime telephone number including area code. Mail your entry in a #10 business-size envelope with first-class postage affixed to: BGK Bonanza Giveaway Entry, POB 738, Syosset, NY 11791-0738 USA. Your outer-mailing envelope must include a valid return address, which includes a complete first and last name. Mailed entries received without a verifiable and legible return address will be deemed incomplete and invalid. Limit one entry per outer-mailing envelope. Bulk shipments (multiple entries in one shipping package) will not be accepted. Mail-in entry, including outer-mailing envelope must be handwritten. No mechanically reproduced entries or metered mail permitted. Statements contained in mail-in entries will not be judged but must be unique. Statements must not in any way reflect negatively upon Sponsor, the Promotion or any other person or entity. Entries that are postmarked by November 30, 2023 and received by December 7, 2023 will be eligible for the drawing. Each mail-in entry will count as five (5) entries, provided that the mail-in entry complies with the above requirements.
To receive additional entries during an Entry Multiplier offer without making a purchase, follow the instructions for mail-in entries above, and hand write the words “ENTRY MULTIPLIER” and the Entry Multiplier (as described above) being offered on the bottom right-hand corner of the envelope. Your mail-in entry must have a postmark that corresponds to the date an Entry Multiplier is offered and received within 5 days of the offer’s deadline. If an Entry Multiplier offer ends on a Sunday or federal holiday, the mail-in entry must be postmarked on the following business day and received within 5 days of the offer deadline. Each mail-in entry received that complies with all the above requirements will receive the applicable number of entries for the respective multiplier that is offered (e.g., 10x multiplier = 50 entries, per mailing envelope).
Mail-in entries that are not in the format specified above, that are illegible, inaccurate, incomplete, or reproduced via photocopier or otherwise will be considered null and void. Proof of submission does not constitute proof of receipt. Not responsible for lost, late, illegible, mutilated, misdirected, postage-due entries or entries not received by the deadline. All material submitted becomes property of Sponsor and will not be returned. No correspondence will be acknowledged or entered into; requests for confirmation of receipt of mail-in entries will not be acknowledged.
RANDOM DRAWING: A random drawing to select winners will be conducted on or about Friday, December 8, 2023 from among all eligible entries received. The random drawing will be conducted by Marden-Kane, Inc. (the “Administrator”), an independent judging organization whose decisions are final. Odds of winning a prize will depend on the number of eligible entries received.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: Prize award is subject to eligibility verification. Potential winners will be contacted by email and/or phone by the Administrator and/or the Sponsor, and may be required to complete and return a Declaration of Compliance, Release of Liability, Prize Acceptance Form, and where lawful, a Publicity Release; US residents who are winners of prizes valued at $600 or more will be required to complete a W-9 Tax form; Canadian residents who are selected as potential winners must correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question (without assistance of any kind, mechanical or otherwise), which may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor be administered online, by email or other electronic means, by telephone, or within the Declaration and Release (collectively “Documents”). All completed Documents must be returned within 3 days (including Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays) of attempted delivery of same. Failure to return required Documents or respond to a notification within the time specified or return of any prize/prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification without further notice and an alternate winner will be selected. In the event a potential winner is deemed ineligible, fails to comply with the Official Rules or is unable to claim the prize as specified, the potential winner will be disqualified, and an alternate winner will be selected. Prize award is contingent on eligibility verification and potential winner completing and returning all required Documents. Only three (3) random drawings to select an alternate winner (if necessary) will be conducted, after which the applicable prize will remain unawarded.
SCAM ALERT - Protect yourself from scams.
