1. Eligibility: The Share A Coke® Royal Caribbean Challenge (the “Promotion”) is open only to legal residents of the 50 U.S. (or D.C.) who are 13 years of age or older at the time of entry and who have or must create a Coke.com (or other Coca-Cola brand) account (each an “Account”) before participating in the Promotion. Employees and non-employee workers of The Coca‑Cola Company (“Sponsor”), Coca‑Cola bottlers, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., HelloWorld, Inc. (“Administrator”), and their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, and agents and those prize providers and agencies that are involved in the development or execution of this Promotion or any of its materials, and the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of each such person are not eligible to enter or to win any prize or receive any Offer in this Promotion.  The Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law. By participating in the Promotion, entrant fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and Administrator, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. The Promotion is comprised of 2 special offers (each an “Offer”) and a sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”), each of which is unlocked ONLY IF THE SPECIFIED THRESHOLD OF PARTICIPATION IS REACHED. See table below for more details.

 

2. Promotion Period: The Promotion begins at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time ("ET"), June 8, 2017 and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET, August 3, 2017 (the "Promotion Period"). If an Offer is unlocked, and if you are a member who is eligible for the Offer, you must claim the applicable Offer through your account by 11:59 p.m. ET on 8/3/17. See details in Section 3 below. If the Sweepstakes is unlocked, and if you are a member who is eligible for the Sweepstakes, you must claim the Sweepstakes entry through your account by 11:59 p.m. ET on 8/10/17. See details in Section 3 below.  Once the third threshold is met, if at all, Code entry will no longer be available. Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for this Promotion.

 

3. How to Enter the Sweepstakes: There are 2 ways to enter the Sweepstakes:

 

a) Code Entry Method of Sweepstakes Entry: During the Promotion Period, visit coke.com/offers and follow the links and instructions to log in to your account (“Account”). Then, locate the code on packaging of any participating Coca‑Cola product [AS1] ("Code"). Follow the links and instructions to enter a Code where indicated.  Your Code entry will count toward the applicable threshold, as specified in the table below. There could be a short delay between when the third threshold is reached and when the Code entry method of entry becomes unavailable, so slightly more than 250,000 Codes may be permitted. If the third threshold is reached before the end of the Promotion Period, and if you are one of the unique individuals who entered a Code prior to the threshold being reached and this method of entry becoming unavailable, you must follow the links and instructions to claim the Sweepstakes entry via your Coke.com account before 8/10/17 at 11:59 p.m. ET, after which will receive 1 entry into the Sweepstakes. Failure to claim the Sweepstakes entry, if any, after the Sweepstakes is unlocked, if at all, and prior to 8/10/17 at 11:59 p.m. ET will not trigger a Sweepstakes entry for you, so be sure to complete this step, if applicable.  Once the third threshold is met, if at all, this method of entry will no longer be available.

 

b) Free Method of Sweepstakes Entry: During the Promotion Period, to enter without making a purchase or entering a Code, hand print your full name, street address, (no P.O. Boxes), day/evening/cellular phone number (if any), Coca-Cola account, and date of birth on a 3" x 5" piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to "The Share A Coke® Royal Caribbean Challenge – Sweeps Entry," P.O. Box 5006, Department 831149, Kalamazoo MI 49003-5006. If the third threshold is reached before the end of the Promotion Period, you will receive 1 entry into the Sweepstakes. Your mailed-in entry will in no way affect the Code entry count toward a threshold. Limit: 1 entry per stamped envelope and only 1 Sweepstakes entry per person, regardless of method of entry. All mail-in entries must be handwritten, postmarked by August 4, 2017 and received by August 11, 2017.  All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and none will be acknowledged or returned.  Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.   

 

Limit: 1 Sweepstakes entry per person total during the Promotion Period, regardless of method or combination of methods of entry.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Account or email address.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than 1 entry 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. 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 entry, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Account 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.  Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

The potential winner will be notified by email, mail or phone and/or via his or her Coke.com account.  The odds of winning the prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. Whether the Sweepstakes is unlocked at all will depend on the number of Codes entered for this Promotion during the Promotion Period.

If not, the Sweepstakes prize will not be awarded at all.
