Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, or logins, or any other methods, will void that entrant’s entries, and that entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed, or similar entry methods or agents (including, but not limited to, sweepstakes entry services) will void all entries by that entrant. In the event of a dispute as to any online entry via the GT Rewards Website or Application, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address or the natural person assigned a GT Rewards account by Good Times USA LLC or its agent. A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
Right of Publicity: Entrant agrees that the Sponsor may use or disclose his or her entry in whole or in part, commercially or noncommercially, in any media, in perpetuity, worldwide, including the right to publish and display the entry for advertising and publicity, and to edit and make derivative works, all without additional notification, review, approval or compensation to anyone, including the entrant. Additionally, each entrant agrees that the Sponsor may post the entry (including your name), or any portion thereof, on its website (www.goodtimestobacco.com), on webpages on third-party sites, or in any other media.
There are 3 available to be won in the Sweepstakes; Prizes and Approximate Retail Value are listed in the Prize Table above (the “Prize”). Each Prize is non-transferable, non-negotiable, and non-divisible, unless otherwise stated in writing or agreed to in writing by the Sponsor. Each Prize consists of only those items specifically listed as part of the Prize. Any difference between the approximate retail value and actual cost will not be awarded. All features including but not limited to size, color, and variety of each Prize will be determined by the Sponsor. Unless otherwise noted in the specific rules on any Sweepstakes page, winners are solely responsible for all taxes, fees, or additional costs associated or related to collection, redemption, or use of any Prize.
If a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable Prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the Prize will remain unawarded.
Winner’s personal information related to a Sweepstakes entry, including, but not limited to, first and last names, full mailing address, phone number, and/or email address, may be shared with other persons or entities involved with the design, production, execution, or distribution of this Sweepstakes for the purpose of Prize awarding and delivery. Prizes will be shipped to the winners’ home addresses at no cost to the winners except in case of an Award of any Vehicle or where specifically noted in the specific rules on a Sweepstakes page, in which case those provisions apply. If a Sweepstakes page requires the winner to travel, at his or her own expense, to collect or redeem a prize, refusal or inability to do so shall result in his or her disqualification.
Each Prize is awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either expressed or implied by the Sponsor. Winners acknowledge that the Sponsor and all other persons and entities affiliated with this Sweepstakes and their agents do not make, nor are in any manner responsible for, any warranties or representations, expressed or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the quality, conditions, fitness, or merchantability of any aspect of the Prize being offered, except that the Prize shall be subject to its manufacturer’s standard warranty (if any).

The winner must have a valid driver's license and proof of insurance, and the winner must take delivery of the vehicle at a location specified by Good Times USA, LLC. For any prize vehicle, neither the Sponsor, any Sweepstakes partner, nor the vehicle manufacturer has made nor is responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee express or implied, in fact or law, relative to the prize vehicle, including but not limited to its quality, mechanical condition, or fitness. If a warranty is offered, it will and shall only be specifically and expressly made by the manufacturer or dealer of the vehicle. Notwithstanding the specific rules on any Sweepstakes page, a Sweepstakes involving a motor vehicle as a prize shall be limited to legal residents of the United States.
The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
All eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period or, as applicable, postmarked during the Sweepstakes period and timely received will be gathered into a database at the end of the Sweepstakes Period. The drawing for the Prize will be randomly awarded to 3 potential winners among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
