OFFICIAL RULES NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW OR REGULATION. You must be eighteen (18) years of age or older to enter this Sweepstakes and a legal resident of the United States and the District of Columbia, excluding Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam, at the time of entry. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. THIS SWEEPSTAKES IS IN NO WAY SPONSORED, ENDORSED OR ADMINISTERED BY, OR ASSOCIATED WITH, INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK OR TWITTER.
SWEEPSTAKES DESCRIPTION: The 2016 Pura Vida Trip to San Diego Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) begins on September 1, 2016 at 8:00 AM Pacific Standard Time and ends on 5:00 PM September 30, 2016 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). At the end of the Sweepstakes Period, a random drawing will be conducted from among all eligible entries received to select One (1) Grand Prize winner and three runners-up. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Creative Genius Inc., doing business as Pura Vida Bracelets, 1025 Prospect Street #350, La Jolla CA 92037 (the “Sponsor”) whose decisions shall be final and legally binding in all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: This Sweepstakes is open only to legal U.S. and District of Columbia residents (excluding Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam) at the time of entry, and who are eighteen (18) years of age, or older. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, consultants, agents and suppliers, (collectively, “Sweepstakes Entities”) as well as their immediate families and persons living in the same household as such individuals, are not eligible to enter or win. All eligibility is subject to all federal, state, and local laws and regulations. All entries submitted are the property of the Sponsor. Sponsor’s database clock will be the timekeeper for this Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of the winners. This Sweepstakes is void where prohibited.
HOW TO ENTER: There is one (1) way to enter this Sweepstakes:
Advocate (Existing Pura Vida Customer) will share the link (“Sweepstakes Link”) via e-mail, Facebook, contest link, SMS or other social media outlet. Advocate may share the link with an Existing Customer (defined as a customer that is already within the Pura Vida database and has previously purchased from Pura Vida) or with a New Customer (a customer that did not previously exist in the Sponsor’s database and has not made a purchase from Sponsor prior to September 1, 2016). If the Advocate shares the Sweepstakes Link with an Existing Customer then the Existing Customer will be sent a promotional code that will allow them to receive 25% off the total value of a purchase of USD $40 or more. If the Advocate shares the Sweepstakes Link with a New Customer, the New Customer will be sent a promotional code that will allow them to receive 50% off the total value of a purchase of USD $40 or more.
Advocate will receive one referral credit for each Successful Referral. A “Successful Referral” is defined as a referral of a New Customer or Existing Customer that redeems the promotional code that is sent to them via the Sweepstakes Link. An Existing Customer that simply makes a purchase during the Sweepstakes Period but does not utilize the Sweepstakes Link is ineligible to receive referral credit. Each Successful Referral (which will be verified by using anti-fraud
technology, and Pura Vida’s customer service team) during the Sweepstakes Period will then be credited for an entry to the Advocate. The Advocate will receive one (1) entry into the prize drawing for the Grand Prize and runners-up prizes per Successful Referral. The Advocate is limited to 15 Successful Referrals during the Sweepstakes Period.
Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in any inappropriate manner will be void. Any abuse of this Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion, may result in the rescission of the referring customer’s referral credit and the referred person’s promotional code as well as both parties’ prohibition to participate in this or future Sweepstakes. Examples of abuse include, but are not limited to, posting referral offers on discount and deal sites, attempting to refer yourself through the creation of multiple accounts, or attempting to circumvent tracking features implemented to prevent gaming or side-stepping of the referral program. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Referral credits cannot be applied to previous purchases, and are not redeemable for cash. This referral program is subject to modification or termination at any time without notice in Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Sweepstake Grand Prize: Sponsor will draw at random from all Successful Referrals (during the Sweepstakes Period) and award one (1) Advocate with a gift card through a travel agency or booking site of Sponsor’s choice in an amount no greater than USD $1,000 to be applied towards travel expenses for the winner to travel to San Diego. Total approximate retail value of the Grand Prize package (the “Grand Prize”) not to exceed USD $1000. The winner of the Grand Prize is ineligible to win any additional prizes.
