Sponsor will randomly select potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or about January 5, 2024.

If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to provide any other requested information (name, shipping address) within the required time period of 24 hours, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits his/her/their prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.
