HOW TO ENTER
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
There are two methods of entering sweepstakes governed by these rules:
You may enter by
using the text messaging feature on your cellular phone to send to a text
message to 515151 with "code word" announced on the Program in the
body of the message. All entrants using this method of entry must have a text
messaging two-way capable handset and digital service in order to enter the
Sweepstakes using the text messaging method. Entrants will be sent a text
message to confirm or reject entry into the Sweepstakes. Text-Message entries
may be subject to fees under the terms of the entrant's cell-phone/text
messaging subscription plan (contact your carrier for pricing plans and
details). Text messaging and wireless service are not available in all areas.
If any dispute arises as to identity of any entrant, an entrant shall be
considered the authorized account holder by the cellular provider.
"Authorized Account Holder" is defined as the natural person who is
assigned a number by the cellular provider or as shown on the cellular
provider's records or the natural person authorized to use the number by an
entity that is shown on cellular provider's records for that number. Only
entries to the designated number and containing the correct keyword shall be
eligible. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any
text message entry at any time which in Sponsor's opinion does not comply with
these Official Rules.

Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Copies or other mechanical reproductions, facsimiles, entries containing technical or electronic reproductions, entries containing attached files are not eligible and will be rejected. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of an entrant, the holder of the e-mail account will be deemed the person who submitted the entry. Entries become the exclusive property of Sponsors and will not be returned or acknowledged. Limit one entry per person/e-mail address per day. Multiple entries from the same person on the same day will be disqualified. Limit one entry per household. Sponsors are not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misaddressed or misdirected due to technical or computer failures, errors or data loss of any kind, lost or unavailable internet connections, or failed incomplete, garbled or deleted computer or networks transmissions, inability to access the website or online service, or any other technical error or malfunction.
