3.    METHODS OF ENTRY:  An entrant may enter using one (1) of following two (2) methods of entry: 

 

A.   Entry Method 1:  After completing a purchase at a participating Charming Charlie retail store, a customer will receive an invitation to participate in a survey (“Survey”). This invitation will be printed on the Charming Charlie store receipt. The customer must log on to the URL provided on the receipt and complete the Survey within seven (7) calendar days from the date of purchase. After completing the Survey, the customer will be asked if he/she wishes to enter the Promotion. If the customer is an eligible entrant and wishes to participate in the Promotion, he/she must then enter the requested information, which may include, but is not limited to: his/her complete first and last name (initials are not permitted), valid e-mail address, complete street mailing address (P.O. Boxes are not accepted), ZIP/Postal Code, telephone number and date of birth. After entering this information, the entrant must click the submit button to receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes Period running when the entry is received. Limit one (1) entry per receipt and one (1) entry per calendar day as set forth below. Purchase must be made in-store by July 31, 2015. As long as the purchase is made on or before July 31, 2015, entrants will still have seven (7) calendar days from the date of purchase to enter the last Sweepstakes Period.

 

B.   Entry Method 2 (alternative method of entry):  This entry method is for those who have not made a purchase. Under this method of entry, during the Promotion Period, visit https://survey.foreseeresults.com/store/controller?id=3be56764&flow=SS and follow the steps to receive an entry into a Sweepstakes Period, including providing the requested registration information. 

 

Regardless of the method of entry, the entry date will be the date that the entrant either completes the Survey or receives an entry by the alternative method of entry, not the date of the receipt or purchase. Therefore, it is possible for an entrant to complete a purchase during one Sweepstakes Period and receive an entry into the next Sweepstakes Period. Regardless of the method of entry, an entrant may only enter the Promotion once per calendar day during the Promotion Period. A calendar day starts at 12:00 AM ET (midnight) and ends at 11:59:59 PM ET each day during the Promotion Period.

 

To be eligible for a Prize, the entrant must comply with these Official Rules. Each entrant must be the authorized account holder of a valid e-mail account. Entries generated by a script, macro, or other automated means will be disqualified. Entries that are incomplete, non-deliverable for any reason, garbled, corrupted, or unintelligible for any reason, including, but not limited to, computer or network malfunction or congestion, are void and will not be accepted. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant’s name, city, state, likeness, image, and/or voice for purposes of advertising, promotion, and publicity in any and all media now or hereafter known, throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification, permission, or approval. 

 

4.    RANDOM DRAWING:  On or about each of the Random Drawing Dates below, Administrator will randomly select six (6) potential winners (each, a “Winner”) from all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Each Winner will be deemed a potential Winner pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Entrants must enter during each Sweepstakes Period to be eligible to win a Prize for that Sweepstakes Period. Entries will not be carried forward from one Sweepstakes Period to the next Sweepstakes Period.
