AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES:  Participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes Entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and Independent Administrator, which are final and binding. Eligibility to win a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth in these Official Rules in a timely manner.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:  Entrants must be a Rewards Member in order to participate in this Sweepstakes.  Existing Rewards Members may bypass this step and proceed to enter as outlined below. To become a new Rewards Member for free, visit https://lukeuprewards.com/ (“Rewards Member Website”) and follow the instructions provided (subject to the terms and conditions of the Luke Up Rewards program).   Then enter the Sweepstakes as outlined below.

 After becoming a Rewards Member, you may enter via the two (2) entry methods: (a) via product purchase (“Purchase”) at Participating Locations using your Rewards Member account; or (b) by mail, without making a Purchase (the “Alternate Method of Entry” or “AMOE”), with your Rewards Member account. Regardless of the entry method(s) used to obtain entry into this Sweepstakes, there is a total limit of two (2) entries per person for the entire Sweepstakes Period. Entry instructions are below:

 

  1. Purchase:  To enter the Sweepstakes by making a Purchase, visit a Participating Location during an Entry Period and, using your Rewards Member account, purchase a minimum of one (1) GFUEL at the register. Upon completing the transaction at the register, you will receive one (1) entry into the drawing associated with the Entry Period for which the purchase was made.  Regardless of the number of transactions made during an Entry Period, there is a total limit of two (2) entries per person per Entry Period for this Sweepstakes. Non-winning eligible entries from the first Entry Period will not carry over to the second Entry Period.  In order to be eligible for a drawing, Entrant must enter each Entry Period separately. Entrants may achieve the maximum number of entries via multiple Purchase transactions, the AMOE, or a combination of the two (2) entry methods. Any attempt to obtain entries by purchasing and returning product will void all the Entrants entries and result in disqualification from this Sweepstakes.
  2. Alternate Method of Entry (AMOE): To enter the Sweepstakes without making a Purchase, Entrants may enter for free, by mail as follows:  On a 3” x 5” card, legibly handprint or type your first name, last name, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number (including area code), date of birth, Rewards Member number and email address.

Each envelope is considered one (1) entry into the Entry Period. Entrants may submit a maximum of two (2) individual envelopes to receive the maximum entry limit of two (2) via the AMOE entry method. Multiple entries submitted by a single Entrant in the same envelope or exceeding the entry limit above will not be considered eligible. Entries submitted or completed by anyone other than the Entrant are void. No mechanical reproductions will be accepted.  Sponsor will not verify receipt of entries for Entries.  All entries submitted by mail become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, illegible, or damaged mailed entries.

In the event an Entrant enters the Sweepstakes via a combination of Purchase and the AMOE, the maximum number of entries he/she will be allowed is two (2) even if the total number of entries submitted exceeds two (2).
