Winner Selection, Claiming Your Prize, Odds of Winning
Winning by Purchase Entry. There are 2.5 million Sweepstakes Packs. 250 of the Sweepstakes Packs contain a “Founder Redemption Card.” Each Founder Redemption Card is marked with a unique code. Each eligible person who presents one of these unique Founder Redemption Cards to Sponsor within the Entry Period in the manner specified herein will be deemed a winner. The odds of getting a Founder Redemption Card are approximately 1 in 10,000. To claim your prize, you must visit squishmallows.com/sweeps and enter your date of birth to confirm that you are at least 13. You must then complete all required fields on the “Winners Claim” form and click submit. You will not be able to submit the Winners Claim form unless and until all required fields have been completed. Some information that will be requested and may be required for completing the Winners Claim form will be your complete name, your email address, an alternative email address, your mailing address, your phone number, your date of birth, where you purchased the winning Sweepstakes Pack (city and state), and, of course, the unique code on your Founder Redemption Card. Sponsor will contact you regarding Prize fulfillment using the contact information that you provide.
Winning by Free Entry. At least 1 additional winner will be randomly selected from the pool of eligible Free Entries. This winner will be selected by a computer generated random drawing within approximately 7 days of the Entry Period ending. The odds of winning are determined by the number of eligible Free Entries received. If the pool of eligible Free Entries exceeds 10,000, a second winner will be selected to ensure that the odds of winning by Free Entry are at least as good as the odds of winning by Purchase Entry. The Free Entry winner(s) will be notified within approximately 7 days of the date of the drawing. For notification purposes, Sponsor will seek to contact you using the information you provided in your entry.
Potential winners are subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Purchase Entry winners may also be required to send their Founder Redemption Card to Sponsor for verification. Winners (or their parent or legal guardian) may be required to sign and return a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Release of Liability (except where prohibited) and any other documents requested by Sponsor within 30 days of Sponsor requesting same. Winners have 2 months from the time the Sponsor first contacts them regarding their win to claim the Prize. Any winner’s failure to respond to notifications, timely return all required forms, or comply with any other provisions required by Sponsor may result in the winner being disqualified. If a notification goes unanswered, or a Prize is returned as undeliverable, for any reason, or if a Prize is not accepted by the winner, the Prize will be awarded to an alternate winner. Alternate winners will be selected from the pool of eligible Free Entries by a computer generated random drawing. Prizes are not transferable, assignable, or redeemable for cash, except that Sponsor reserves the right to provide a substitute Prize of equal or greater value in case of unavailability or force majeure. Sponsor shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the Prize for any reason. All federal, state, and local tax liabilities are the responsibility of the winner.
