a. Text Message: Using an SMS-enabled mobile device, an entrant must send a text message stating FIREBALLFRIDAY (“Keyword”) to the short code 555888 (“Short Code”). Once the text message is received, the entrant will be sent a reply text message asking the entrant to submit his/her date of birth in the following format: “mmddyyyy”. Upon receipt of a valid date of birth and the Keyword, an entrant will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Promotion (“Text Message Entry”). Only Text Message Entries to the Short Code with the valid Keyword and valid date of birth will be accepted as a valid Text Message Entry. All Text Message Entries must be received by Sponsor or its authorized designee within the Promotion Period. NOTE: Proof of text message submission does not constitute proof of delivery or receipt of the text message.
IMPORTANT: By texting the Keyword to the Short Code, you are consenting to receive up to two (2) reply text messages per entry regarding the Promotion. Consent is not a condition ofentry. Your text is your electronic signature agreeing to these Official Rules and to giving electronic written consent. Participants must have a mobile phone with text messaging capabilities to enter by text message. Participants entering this Promotion via text message may incur a standard text message charge from their wireless service provider for each message sent and received. Check with your wireless service provider for details on these and any other applicable charges. Participants are solely responsible for any such wireless charges. Not all wireless carriers participate. A participant may, at any time, choose to not receive further text messages by sending an opt-out text message stating “STOP” to the Short Code. If a participant sends an opt-out text message, he/she will be sent a reply text message, which will confirm that he/she has been unsubscribed and will receive no further text messages. For help, text the word “HELP” to the Short Code. Each Text Message Entry must be manually key-stroked/entered by the entrant.
b. Mail-in: An eligible entrant may hand write his/her complete name (no initials), valid email address, street address (P.O. Boxes not accepted), city, state, ZIP code, telephone number, the Keyword, and date of birth (MM/DD/YYYY) on a 3ó” x 5” card (“Mail-In Entry”) and mail it with sufficient postage to: Fireball Friday Sweepstakes Entry, CCM, 11 E 47TH ST, New York, 10017 to be postmarked within the Promotion Period and received on or before October 3, 2019 to be eligible.
