Remember your “secret word” in case you are a prize winner. Entries are limited to one entry per person/email address/household per day during the Entry Period. You will have the opportunity to share on your Facebook wall a notice created by Sponsor regarding the Sweepstakes. If you do, you may also earn 1 bonus entry (up to a total of 6 entries) for every Facebook friend who enters after you by following the link in your post.

Entrants may not enter the Sweepstakes more than once (not including any bonus entries for referrals). Multiple entries, including those by means of software-generated or other automated processes, will be disregarded. Only one prize per person, household, or email address allowed.

If multiple accounts are detected for a single entrant, the accounts will be voided and the entries will be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address or account used to register will be deemed to be the registrant.
