Instant-Win Game: During the Promotion Period, purchase any bag of RUFFLES® Potato Chips and look for the 9 to 11-digit product code (“Bag Code”) located below the “guaranteed fresh” statement on the front of the bag. To obtain a Bag Code (worth two  Plays) without making a purchase, send a 3″ x 5″ card or piece of paper with your full name, address, city, state, zip code, date of birth and email address, to be received by May 14, 2019, to: Ruffles Streak for the Seats Bag Code Request, PO Box 760006, Dept. 879-725, El Paso, TX 88576-0006.

Upon obtaining a Bag Code, visit RufflesStreak.com (“Web Site”) during the Promotion Period and follow the on-screen instructions to register and input your Bag Code and then properly submit an online play to determine if you have won an Instant-Win Prize (subject to verification) (a “Play”).
Bonus Play: During the Promotion Period, input a Bag Code from a bag of RUFFLES® Double Crunch Potato Chips and you will receive two (2) Plays.
Randomly-selected times, during the Promotion Period, will be chosen by the Judges, and the first participant who completes a Play in accordance with these Official Rules (whose Play is properly received and recorded by administrator’s computer(s) at or immediately after a randomly selected time) will win an Instant-Win Prize (subject to verification). If your computer screen displays a prize-winning message, you are a potential winner of the indicated Instant-Win Prize (subject to verification). If your computer screen displays a non-winning prize message, you are not a winner of an Instant-Win Prize. Odds of winning an Instant-Win Prize depend on the number of eligible Plays received and the order in which they are received.
Limit one (1) Bag Code submission per person/email address per day. A “day” is defined as a twenty-four (24) hour time period between 12:00:00 a.m. CT and 11:59:59 p.m. CT of the same day, with the exception of the first day of the Promotion Period which shall begin at 12:00:00 p.m. CT and end at 11:59:59 p.m. CT of the same day.

Streak for the Seats Challenge: During the Promotion Period, visit the Web Site (RufflesStreak.com) to register and answer questions corresponding to upcoming 2019 NBA Playoff games (each an “NBA Playoff Game”). For each NBA Playoff Game, Sponsor will present a minimum of one (1) question per NBA Playoff Game. Questions will be displayed on the Web Site at least one (1) day prior to the game date and in the order the games are scheduled to play (or as otherwise determined by Sponsor, in Sponsor’s sole discretion). Once you have registered for the Promotion, answer the questions in the order they are presented and within the allotted time frame. When you answer a question correctly, your streak begins. Continue to correctly answer all of the questions for each NBA Playoff Game and your streak continues.
If for any reason, including fault of Sponsor or its agents, or events or non-events outside of Sponsor’s control, a question’s outcome does not occur, rendering neither of the potential answers correct, that question will not count toward the Promotion. The question will be voided and the participant’s streak will remain as it was at the end of the previous question. The decision to void a question is Sponsor’s at its sole discretion.
For the entire Promotion Period: If you skip an NBA Playoff Game question or if you incorrectly answer an NBA Playoff Game question, your streak ends. If your streak ends, visit the Web Site to view the next NBA Playoff Game question(s) and answer that question or questions (as applicable) correctly to start a new streak.
Grand Prize winner determination: The participant with the “longest streak” at the end of the Promotion Period will win the Grand Prize. The longest streak shall be defined as the individual who answers the most consecutive questions correctly within the Promotion Period. In the case of a tie, the tied participants with the longest streaks shall be entered into a random drawing to determine the Grand Prize Winner.
Grand Prize Drawing (only in the case of a tie for the longest streak): One (1) potential Grand Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing to be held on or about one (1) business day following the final NBA Conference Finals game from among all eligible participants (those tied for the longest streak in the Streak for the Seats Challenge) by the Judges, whose decisions shall be final.
