Ebates Refer-A-Friend Giveaway
(U.S. October – December 2016)
No purchase necessary to enter or win. A purchase or payment will not increase your chances of winning
The Ebates Refer-A-Friend Giveaway (“Sweepstakes”) is sponsored by Ebates Inc., 160 Spear Street, Suite 1900, San Francisco, CA 94105 (“Sponsor”).
2. Sweepstakes Period: The Sweepstakes begins on October 1, 2016 at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends December 31, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET according to Sponsor’s time clock (“Sweepstakes Period”).
3. How to Enter the Sweepstakes: Entrants must have a valid Ebates account at the start of the Sweepstakes Period. Each time Entrant refers an eligible friend or family member who doesn’t already have an Ebates account to Ebates during the Sweepstakes Period, and the referred friend signs up for a new Ebates account via the Entrant’s referral communication, Entrant’s referral automatically earns Entrant an entry in the Sweepstakes, up to a maximum of five (5) entries per Entrant.
Entrants can refer friends and family by accessing Entrant’s account at www.ebates.com. Once Entrant is logged in, click on the Ebates Refer-A-Friend link and “refer a friend” according to the steps provided on the page. An Entrant can send an email via the site or generate a Facebook post. Entrants will also be provided with a unique link to use to refer friends and family who are eligible to establish a new Ebates account. Entrants can send the link to friends and family via their own email and/or post it via their social media accounts. For every eligible friend/family member who establishes an Ebates account via the Entrant’s referral communication, that Entrant will receive one (1) entry. Entrants should only invite people they know and who they think would want to receive the invitation – no spamming. PLEASE NOTE THAT WHENEVER YOU SHARE YOUR PERSONAL LINK WITH A FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER YOU SHOULD INCLUDE A STATEMENT THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE AN ENTRY INTO THE SWEEPSTAKES IF YOUR FRIEND SIGNS UP FOR A NEW EBATES ACCOUNT VIA YOUR REFERRAL COMMUNICATION. While we appreciate Entrants referring up to ten (10) friends at one time, Entrants will only get a maximum of five (5) entries into the Sweepstakes for up to the first five (5) referrals. Any eligible referrals received after the first five (5) referrals will not count towards entry. All entries must be received by December 31, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. ET according to Sponsor’s time clock.
Alternate Method of Entry by mail: : Entrants may also enter by mailing up to five (5) handwritten 3 x 5 cards with Entrant’s full name, postal address, the email address that corresponds with Entrant’s Ebates account, and telephone number to Ebates Sweepstakes, Refer-A-Friend Q4 2016, Ebates Inc., 160 Spear Street, Suite 1900, San Francisco, CA 94105. All contact information provided must be valid, truthful and current. Entrants will receive one (1) entry for each valid, complete card received. Mail-in entries must be postmarked by December 31, 2016 and must be received no later than January 7, 2017. Envelopes containing multiple entries will be disqualified. Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, damaged, delayed, destroyed, misdirected, incomplete, illegible, mutilated, or postage due mail. Such entries are void and will not be accepted. Incomplete, unreadable, or unintelligible entries, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, will be disqualified.
Only a maximum of five (5) entries per Entrant during the Sweepstakes Period will be accepted by either or both methods combined. Entries or referrals generated by script macro or other automated means or by any means that subverts the entry process will be void. All entries become the property of Sponsor.
4. Odds: Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.
5. Winner Selection and Notification of Potential Winner: Potential winner will be selected on or about January 9, 2017 at random by a representative of Sponsor from among all eligible entries received by the end of the Sweepstakes Period to receive the prize (the “Potential winner”).
The Potential winner will be notified by email or telephone, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, using the information provided at the time of entry. Potential winner will be required to respond (as directed) within seven (7) calendar days of attempted notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in forfeiture of the prize and, in such case Sponsor may randomly select an alternate potential winner from among the remaining eligible entries, up to three (3) attempts. Potential winner will be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility / liability / publicity release (“Release”) within five (5) calendar days from the date of notification. An alternate potential winner may be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries if potential winner, up to three (3) attempts: (i) cannot be reached; (ii) fails to prove eligibility, obtain all signatures on the Release and/or return any documents or information required by Sponsor in a timely manner as required pursuant to these Official Rules; or (iii) cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason.
