4. How to Enter: There are two (2) ways to enter the Sweepstakes, as outlined below:
a. Make a Purchase: During the Promotion Period, purchase two (2) bottles of specially-marked
Heinz tomato ketchup, mustard, and/or mayochup and locate the number (either 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
7, 8 or 9) on the front of bottle (“Qualifying Purchase”). Be sure to keep your receipt. Take an image
of your entire receipt. The receipt image must be clear and legible, include the purchase date and
time, and show the Qualifying Purchase, the Qualifying Purchase price and total amount spent.
During the Promotion Period, visit www.heinzsquares.com (“Website”) and follow the links and
instructions to complete and submit the registration form including a valid email address. Next,
follow the links and instructions to upload the image of your receipt. Then, select two (2) numbers
from the bottles purchased. If either or both numbers you selected matches any number in the final
score of the applicable game, you will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game
Entry Period drawing. For example, if the final score is 27-21, any entrant that selected a 7 or 1
will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game Entry Period drawing and any
entrant that selected a 2 will receive two (2) Sweepstakes entries into the applicable Game Entry
Period drawing. If the final score ends in a single digit for either team, (e.g., 31-7), we will count the
single-digit score as “07” and any entrant that scanned either a 3, 1, 0, or 7 will receive one (1)
Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game Entry Period drawing. If the number in the final score
appears more than one time, you will receive Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game Entry
Period drawing for each time that number appears in the final score. For example, if the final score
is 22-12, any entrant that selected a 2 would receive three (3) Sweepstakes entries into the
applicable Game Entry Period drawing.
b. Mail-in Alternate Method: To enter without making a purchase, hand print your name, address,
day and evening phone numbers, email address, date of birth, which Game Entry Period you are
entering, and two (2) numbers from 0 to 9 (either 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9) on a 3″ x 5″ piece of
paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to “Heinz Squares,” c/o Merkle, Inc., P.O. Box
5046, Department 846501, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5046. You must also list out the Game Entry
Period for which you are entering on the outside of the envelope, (e.g., “Game Entry Period
1″). If you do not indicate a Game Entry Period on the outside of the envelope, your entry
will be voided, and you will not receive any entries into the Sweepstakes.
If either or both numbers you wrote on your 3″ x 5” piece of paper matches any number in the final
score of the applicable game, you will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game
Entry Period drawing. For example, if the final score is 27-21, any entrant that selected a 7 or 1
will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game Entry Period drawing and any
entrant that selected a 2 will receive two (2) Sweepstakes entries into the applicable Game Entry
Period drawing. If the final score ends in a single digit for either team, (e.g., 31-7), we will count the
single-digit score as “07” and any entrant that wrote either a 3, 1, 0, or 7 will receive one (1)
Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game Entry Period drawing. If the number in the final score
appears more than one time, you will receive Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Game Entry
Period drawing for each time that number appears in the final score. For example, if the final score
is 22-12, any entrant that selected a 2 would receive three (3) Sweepstakes entries into the
applicable Game Entry Period drawing. Limit: One (1) entry per envelope. If you do not include a
number on your mail-in entry, your entry will be voided. If you include more than two (2) numbers
on your mail-in entry, we will only apply the first two (2) numbers listed. All mail-in entries must be
handwritten and must be postmarked by and received by the dates listed above in Section 3. All
entries 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
entries, which will be disqualified.
Limit: You may either upload three (3) receipts and select up to six (6) numbers (two (2) per receipt), mail
in three (3) times and select up to six (6) numbers (two (2) per mail-in) or a combination of the two methods
of entry during the Promotion Period. 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

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 Game
Entry Period winners from all eligible entries received during each applicable Game Entry Period on or
around February 19, 2021. Game Entry Period entries will carry over to subsequent Game Entry Periods
only if entrant selected a number(s) in the final score of the applicable game. If a game is postponed, the
Game Entry Period’s end date will be adjusted to 12 a.m. ET the night before the game is played. All other
dates will also be adjusted (Mail-in postmark date, Mail-in receive by date, and drawing date). If a game is
cancelled, Administrator will randomly select four (4) numbers from 0 to 9, and any entrant who selected
any number that appears in the randomly selected numbers will be entered into the drawing for the
applicable Game Entry Period. The potential winners will be notified by email or phone. Each potential
winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) of a prize valued at or
over $600 will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and where not
prohibited a Publicity Release (“Declaration”) which must be received by Administrator, within five (5) days
of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize. If a potential winner of any prize
cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information
within the required time period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner
forfeits his/her prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. 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 will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled within
approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.

discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the

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

Sweepstakes, if it is 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 the stated number of

claims.
11. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of
