to your mobile device. The App is free. During each Entry Period, visit your local, participating
Bed Bath & Beyond store and locate the Sweepstakes signage in-store. For a list of participating
stores, visit https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/static/events. There will be a quick
response (“QR”) code located on the signage. Visit the event table/desk and check-in to
participate by scanning the check-in QR code. Once you check-in, the App will indicate the three
(3) departments or brands featuring additional signage with symbols and QR codes. Visit all
three (3) departments/brands and utilize your App to scan each QR code. Once you find the three
(3) signs and scan all three (3) QR codes, you will be provided with a link to the Sweepstakes site
and prompted to enter the Sweepstakes. Follow the links and instructions to complete and
submit a registration form including a valid email address. You automatically will receive one
entry and three bonus entries for scanning the three (3) department/product signage QR codes,
for a total of four (4) entries into the Sweepstakes. Message and data rates may apply. Please
consult your wireless-service provider regarding its pricing plans.
b. Alternate Method of Entry- Utilize FindandScanSweepstakes.com URL: Visit
FindandScanSweepstakes.com and follow the links and instructions to complete and submit the
2
registration form including a valid email address to receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes
entry period. To earn three (3) bonus entries for the Entry Period, visit your local Bed Bath &
Beyond store and locate the Sweepstakes signage in-store. Signage featuring Sweepstakes
symbols and QR codes will appear in three (3) departments or three (3) brand areas of the store.
Take note of the specific symbols on each sign to help you answer the bonus question that
appears on the registration form, or you may simply guess your selections from the Bonus

signage from the provided list. If you correctly select all three (3) symbols, you will receive three
(3) additional entries into the Sweepstakes.
Limit: One (1) Sweepstakes entry and three (3) bonus Sweepstakes entries per Entry Period per
person, regardless of method of entry. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email
address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using
multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, and logins, or any other methods will void that
entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is
prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized
account holder of the email address used to register 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. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the
authorized account holder.
5. Prize Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization, whose decisions as to the
administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and
binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential Entry
Period winners from all eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period on or around the dates
listed in Section 3 above. Non-winning Entry Period entries will not carry over into any subsequent Entry
Period drawings. The potential winners will be notified by email and phone. Except where prohibited,
each potential winner will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and
Publicity Release (“Declaration”), which must be received by Administrator within seven (7) days of the
date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. Receiving a prize is contingent
upon compliance with these Official Rules. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and
return the Declaration or provide any other requested information within the required time period (if
applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits the prize. In the event that 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 for
each Entry Period will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled
approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of each Entry Period.

(collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not

Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.
8. Publicity: Except where prohibited, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes each winner’s consent
to Sponsor’s, prize providers and their agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice,
opinions and/or hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further
payment or consideration. By entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant assigns all intellectual property
rights, including copyright, and waives all moral rights, in favor of the Released Parties, as applicable, and
agrees that any other documentation required for such assignment shall be executed by the entrant in
writing upon request at any time by the Sponsor.
9. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes,
or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or
proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves
the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or
the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other
promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately
undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and,
should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to
the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not
constitute a waiver of that provision.
10. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate
information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming
associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited
to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines, network hardware, software, the App or
any participating store’s WIFI; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the
Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or
the processing of entries; (5) late, lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail; or (6) any injury or damage
to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s
participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s
entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s
sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. If the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, is
discontinued for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among
4
all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No
more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding,
programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these
Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number
of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
11. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes

enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in
connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of
the State of Michigan without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the
