Any attempt to manipulate or tamper with the winner selection system or the database of entries will result in disqualification and possible criminal prosecution. For the purposes of this Contest, a “Day” shall mean a calendar day that begins at 12:00 AM (ET) and ends at 11:59:59 PM (ET). A “Week” shall begin on Tuesday and end on Monday.

All Mobile Coupons must be redeemed, in-store, within fifteen (15) days of receipt, after which time, the Mobile Coupon will expire.

    3.
