No other attempted method of entry will be accepted. One entry per person ("Entrant") per Weekly Sweepstakes (regardless of number of stores visited). If more than one entry is submitted for any Weekly Sweepstakes, only the first such entry submitted will be accepted.

Each Potential Winner (or, in the event that the Potential Winner is an eligible minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) must sign and return the Sweepstakes Documents within three (3) days of the date of receipt or he/she will forfeit the Prize and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected. Provided that the Potential Winner has complied with these Official Rules and meets all of the eligibility requirements set forth herein, following Sponsor's receipt of the signed Sweepstakes Documents, Sponsor shall declare the Potential Winner a winner ("Winner") of the respective Weekly Sweepstakes. This process will be repeated for each Weekly Sweepstakes until all prizes have been awarded. Return of any Prize Notification or Sweepstakes Documents as undeliverable will result in disqualification, and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected from all eligible entries received for the original drawing. Sponsor shall repeat the winner selection and notification procedures set forth in this Section until qualified Winners have been selected for each Weekly Sweepstakes.
