WHEAT THINS® 10 GRAMS EVERY 10 SECONDS – OFFICIAL RULES

 

NO PURCHASE OR MOBILE TWEETING IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR MOBILE TWEET WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

 

The Wheat Thins® 10 Grams Every 10 Seconds (the “Promotion”) starts at 8:00 am ET on 9th of April 2014 and ends at 8:00 PM ET on 9th April 2014 (the “Promotion Period”).

 

ELIGIBILITY: Promotion is open to residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years of age and who have a Twitter account and follow @WHEATTHINS on Twitter.  Individuals with restricted/private Twitter accounts are not eligible to enter.  Employees of Mondelēz Global LLC (“Sponsor”), Twitter, AKQA (“Judges”), and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, promotion and advertising agencies and members of their immediate family (spouse, parent, sibling or child and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and persons living in the same household of such employees, whether or not related, are not eligible to enter or win. Void where prohibited by law.  Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.

 

HOW TO ENTER:  Prior to or during the Promotion Period, become a follower of @WHEATTHINS on Twitter at <https://twitter.com/wheatthins>.  During the promotion period, users can either retweet an @WheatThins tweet containing the hashtag #PoppedWheatThins or send an original tweet with the hashtag #PoppedWheatThins to be entered to win.  A new winner will be selected every 10 seconds.  All entries must be received during the Promotion Period to be eligible. If you choose to tweet using your mobile phone, standard text messaging fees for text messages sent and received may apply. See your wireless provider for pricing plan details. To be eligible tweets cannot contain any offensive language and must be dignified, modest and in good taste as determined solely at the discretion of the Sponsor and/or Judges. Use of any robotic, automatic, programmed or similar entry method will void all entries and result in disqualification.  A Twitter account is required to enter and can be opened for free at <http://twitter.com>. All entries become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be returned.  LIMIT SIX  ENTRIES PER HOUR.

 

DRAWING/WINNER NOTIFICATION: Prizes will be awarded every 10 seconds.  From 8:00 AM ET to 1:30 PM ET and 3:07 PM ET to 8:00 PM ET, winners will receive a bag of Popped Wheat Thins, delivered to their home.  From 1:30 PM ET to 3:07 PM ET, we will offer a Popped Wheat Thins prize pack (3 bags of Popped Wheat Thins, a “certificate of poppableness” and an example of the ballon they popped in Times Square with their tweet).  Potential winners will be notified via Twitter direct message on April 9th and have 24 hours to provide from the time the direct message is sent to provide his/her first and last name, address, email and age so that a winner notification package may be sent to him/her via the mail.  If potential winner does not provide necessary address information via the link in their direct message  within 48 hours from the time the message is sent as noted above the prize will automatically be forfeited. If Sponsor is unable to contact a potential winner, the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or if a potential winner(s) is not in compliance with these Official Rules, prize will be forfeited.
