disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or

for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. All Instant
Win Potential Winners and the Grand Prize Winner (as defined below) may be required to show
proof of being the authorized account holder.
5. Sweepstakes/Instant Win Game: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose
decisions as to the administration and operation of the Promotion and the selection of Instant Win
Potential Winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. Sweepstakes:
Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner (the “Grand Prize
Winner”), from all eligible entries on or around April 12, 2021. If the originally selected, potential
Grand Prize Winner does not respond within the specified timeframe/forfeits the prize, as outlined
in Section 7 below, Administrator will randomly select the potential first alternate Grand Prize
Winner, from all remaining eligible entries on or around April 20, 2021. If the selected, potential first
alternate Grand Prize Winner does not respond within the specified timeframe/forfeits the prize, as
outlined in Section 7 below, Administrator will randomly select the potential second alternate Grand
Prize Winner, from all remaining eligible entries on or around April 28, 2021. If the selected,
potential second alternate Grand Prize Winner does not respond within the specified
timeframe/forfeits the prize, as outlined in Section 7 below, Administrator will randomly select the
potential third alternate Grand Prize Winner, from all remaining eligible entries on or around May
6, 2021. Instant Win Game: There will be three hundred fifty (350) random, computer-generated
winning times, one for each prize listed below, generated during the Promotion Period. If you are
the first player to play the Instant Win Game at or after one of the randomly-generated times, you
will be an Instant Win Potential Winner of the prize indicated.
6. ALL INSTANT WIN POTENTIAL WINNERS AND THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER ARE
SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR OR ADMINISTRATOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE
FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. AN ENTRANT IS
NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE INSTANT WIN GAME OR SWEEPSTAKES
SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY, AND THE INSTANT
WIN POTENTIAL WINNER AND/OR SWEEPSTAKES GRAND PRIZE WINNER HAVE BEEN
VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU
OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS
FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY, IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE
HONORED.
7. Verification of Potential Winners: Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these
Official Rules. The potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize Winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner
is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be notified by email via the email address that is
provided during the registration process to this Promotion (“Official Notification”) The potential
Grand Prize Winner will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and
Publicity Release which must be received by Administrator, within five (5) days of Official
Notification (or any attempt thereof), in order to claim the prize. If any Instant Win Potential Winner
or the Grand Prize Winner cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and return the Declaration of
Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release or provide any other requested information within the
required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, the Instant Win Potential
Winner or Grand Prize Winner forfeits the prize. In the event that any Instant Win Potential Winner,
or Grand Prize Winner, of a prize valued over $25 is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award
the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible
entries. There will be a maximum of three (3) alternate drawings for a prize, after which the prize
will remain unawarded. Unclaimed prizes valued at $25 or less will not be awarded. Instant Win
Game Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Promotion.

For All Prizes: Terms and conditions of gift cards apply. There is no cash equivalent, and all prizes
are non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s
sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if
the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Instant Win Potential Winners
and Grand Prize Winner are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or
use. TOTAL ARV OF ALL PRIZES: $41,024.95.
9. Release: By receipt of any prize, Instant Win Potential Winners and Grand Prize Winner
agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, General Mills, Inc., Merkle Inc., and their
respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies
and each of their respective parent companies and each such company’s officers, directors,
employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or
cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of
property, arising out of participation in the Promotion or receipt or use or misuse of any
prize.
10. Publicity: Except where prohibited, participation in the Promotion constitutes winner’s consent
to Sponsor’s and its 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.
11. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the
Promotion, 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 or Instant Win Game, as determined by
Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prizes at
random from among the eligible entries or plays received up to the time of the impairment. 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 Instant Win Game 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
or the Instant Win Game may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt
be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek any and all available remedies from any such person
to the fullest extent of the law, including criminal prosecution. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term
of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
12. 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 Promotion; (2) technical failures of any kind,
including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network
hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the
Promotion; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Promotion or
the processing of entries; or (5) 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 Promotion or receipt or
use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry or play is confirmed to have been
erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another
Sweepstakes entry or Instant Win Game play, if possible. 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 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.
13. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and
causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded shall be
resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States
District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (Southern Division) or the appropriate Michigan
State Court located in Oakland County, Michigan; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards
shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this
Promotion, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted
to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and
consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and
any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. All issues and questions
concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the
rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, 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 State of Michigan or any other
jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State
of Michigan.
