In order to submit an entry by text message, entrant must (i) have a plan with a wireless carrier that includes a text messaging service; and (ii) use a wireless device that is capable of two way text messaging. By sending a text message to enter, you signify that you understand that Sponsor will send a reply text message using an automatic dialing device to the phone number associated with the wireless mobile device you used to enter confirming your entry into the Sweepstakes and your consent to receive that message. You also consent to being notified via text message to the phone number associated with the wireless mobile device you used to enter if you are selected as a winner. If you do not want to receive any such text messages, then you should enter the Sweepstakes using the entry methods described in rule #3A or #3C. YOU MAY BE CHARGED A FEE FOR MESSAGE TRANSMISSION AND DELIVERY BY YOUR CELLULAR NETWORK CARRIER. If you opt to enter via your wireless mobile device (which is not required to enter the Sweepstakes and may only be available via participating wireless carriers), standard text messaging and/or data rates may apply for each message sent or received from your handset according to the terms and conditions of your service agreement with your wireless carrier. Other charges may apply (such as normal airtime and carrier charges) and may appear on your mobile phone bill or be deducted from your prepaid account balance. Wireless carriers' rate plans may vary, and you should contact your wireless carrier for more information on messaging rate plans and charges relating to your participation in this Sweepstakes. The text messaging method of entry is designed to work with most of the U.S. major wireless carriers in the United States, but Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate, and the mobile phone that is used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages. Check with your carrier for details. Entrants should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability. Mobile device service may not be available in all areas. Check your phone’s capabilities for specific instructions. Sponsor in its sole discretion may add or delete a cellular carrier at any time, without notice. Proof of text messaging the Short Code is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such Sweepstakes entry. Text entries must be completed by 2/27/16 at 11:59:59 PM (CT). Text STOP to cancel. Sponsor will send you a text message confirming that you have been unsubscribed and you will not receive any additional messages unless you re-register on our Website.
