restaurant and you will receive an official game piece with a peel-off Sticker, while
supplies last, and subject to the limit stated below.
b) Free mail-in entry method: During the Promotion Period, to obtain a Sticker without
making a purchase or visiting a U.S. Wendy’s restaurant, print your name, street address,
day and evening phone numbers, email address, and date of birth on a piece of paper
along with a self-addressed stamped envelope (legal residents of Vermont do not
need to include a self-addressed stamped envelope) and mail it in an envelope with
proper postage to “Coca-Cola and Wendy’s Free Breakfast for a Year 2021 – Free
Sticker,” c/o Merkle Inc., P.O. Box 5011, Department 846857, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-
5011, to request a Sticker. Sponsor/Administrator will fulfill requests while supplies last.

before supplies are depleted, otherwise they will not be honored. Limit: one (1) request
per envelope, subject to the limit stated below. All requests become the exclusive
property of Sponsor and none will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or
submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not
responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or
postage-due requests, which will be disqualified.
For Both Instant Win Game Methods: Once you have obtained a Sticker, peel off the Sticker to

your prize or redeem your coupon.
Promotion Limit: Regardless of method of entry, one (1) Instant Win Game play and one (1)

the stated number of entries/plays by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, devices,
registrations or logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s plays/entries and that
participant 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 participant. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder
of the email address used to participate will be deemed to be the participant. 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 winners may be required to show proof
of being authorized account holders.
6. ALL POTENTIAL WINNING PLAYS AND SWEEPSTAKES WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO

BINDING. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF A STICKER OR

SAYING HE OR SHE WON, UNLESS AND UNTIL PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND
PARTICIPANT’S WINNING PLAY AND/OR SWEEPSTAKES WIN HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND
PARTICIPANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL
NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS

winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required
to sign and return to Administrator a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release
(“Declaration”)(except where prohibited), which must be received within five (5) business days of
the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. Further, each potential

Wendy’s account and provide his/her account information, including the email associated with
his/her account, to Administrator within five (5) business days of the date notice of attempted
notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If any potential winner does not claim his/her prize
according to the instructions on the Sticker and in these Official Rules or within the required time
period, cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and return the Declaration and/or other required
forms within the required time period, or if a prize is returned as undeliverable, he/she is
disqualified and forfeits the applicable prize.
For the Sweepstakes: Administrator will randomly select each potential Daily Entry Period winner
from all eligible entries received during the applicable Daily Entry Period. Each drawing will occur
on the day after the applicable Daily Entry Period. Non-winning entries will not be included in
subsequent Daily Entry Period drawings. Each potential Sweepstakes winner will be notified by
email.
Each potential Sweepstakes winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state
of residence) will be required to sign and return to Administrator a Declaration (except where
prohibited), which must be received within five (5) business days of the date notice or attempted
notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. Further, each potential Sweepstakes winner, if

provide his/her account information, including the email associated with his/her account, to
Administrator within five (5) business days of the date notice of attempted notice is sent, in order
to claim his/her prize. In the event that a Sweepstakes potential winner cannot be contacted,
forfeits the prize, fails to return the Declaration within the required time frame, is disqualified for
any reason, or if a prize is returned as undeliverable, Administrator will select an alternate
potential winner in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to three (3)
alternates. If the alternate potential winners are disqualified, the applicable prize will not be
awarded.
