THESE OFFICIAL RULES ARE A CONTRACT—READ THEM CAREFULLY BEFORE ENTERING. WITHOUT
LIMITATION, THIS CONTRACT INCLUDES A RELEASE AND LICENSE FROM YOU, AND A LIMITATION OF CERTAIN
OF YOUR RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. PURCHASES DO NOT INCREASE ODDS OF WINNING. ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND
ON NUMBER OF ELIGIBLE ENTRIES RECEIVED. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
1. Promotion and Sponsor. Participation in the Michaels Rewards Appreciation Days Sweepstakes promotion
(the “Promotion”) constitutes Entrant’s (as defined below) full and unconditional agreement to these Official
Rules. Entrant is free to disclaim any prize and status as Entrant, and as a result will not be eligible to receive
any prize. The Promotion is sponsored and administered by Michaels Stores, Inc., 3939 West John Carpenter
Freeway, Irving, Texas 75063 (“Sponsor”). All decisions related to, as well as all interpretation of, these Official
Rules by Sponsor are final and binding. While this Promotion may be promoted via social media websites, such
websites are not affiliated with Sponsor or this Promotion. This Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed
or administered by, or associated with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or any other third-party website
or application that might host content where information about this Promotion is published (collectively
“Content Hosts”). Entrant is providing information only to Sponsor and not to Content Hosts.
2. Promotion Period. The Promotion begins at 12:00:00 AM Central time (“CT”) on May 9, 2021 and ends at
11:59:59 PM CT on June 5, 2021 (the “Promotion Period”). Only entries submitted and received during the
Promotion Period will be accepted. Sponsor is the official timekeeper of this promotion.
3. Eligibility. The Promotion is open only to individuals that are legal residents of one of the fifty United States,
or the District of Columbia, age 18 or older. Employees or agents of Sponsor, Cataboom LLC, or their parent or
affiliate companies, vendors, suppliers, consultants, sub-contractors, distributors, legal counsel, or advertising,
marketing, public relations, or promotional/fulfillment agencies, as well as the immediate family (spouse,
parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee or agent, are not eligible. Legal
entities are not eligible to enter. Eligibility is contingent upon agreement to, compliance with, and fulfillment
of all requirements of these Official Rules.
4. How to Enter. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. PURCHASES DO NOT INCREASE ODDS OF WINNING. There is one
(1) method of entry. By participating in the Promotion in any way you will become an “Entrant.” Each Entrant
who enters using the below method of entry is eligible for and will receive one entry. Limit one eligible entry
per person per day in the Promotion.
Method of Entry: You will automatically become an Entrant and receive one entry by visiting
https://www.michaels.com/rewardssweeps (the “Website”), and complete the online entry form, which
includes your name, email address, and phone number, agreeing to join the Michaels Rewards program if not
already a member, and completing a short online game.

5. Conditions of Entry. Entries not legitimately submitted in accordance with these Official Rules are void.
Only qualified entries received by Sponsor during the Promotion Period are eligible for participation.
Entrants may be required to provide the following information to be eligible for a Promotion prize: first, middle
and last name, month, day and year of birth, email address, complete mailing address, and phone number
(collectively or individually, “Personal Information”). All requested Personal Information must be provided to
participate in the Promotion and to be eligible to win a prize. Unintelligible entries; entries with incomplete,
invalid, incorrect, or noncurrent information; and entries that are counterfeit, damaged, or tampered with in
any way will be disqualified. Entries that are late, lost, damaged, misdirected, stolen or not delivered are not
the responsibility of Sponsor and will be disqualified. Sponsor is not responsible if a potential winner does not
receive a prize because erroneous, expired, canceled, fraudulent, or fake information was provided during the
Promotion. Proof of sent entry or entry receipt (such as a copy of a “thank you” message) does not constitute
proof of actual receipt of entry by Sponsor for purposes of this Promotion.
Participation must be by Entrant. Participation by any other individual or entity, or originating at any other
website, or email address, including without limitation, commercial promotion entering and subscription
notification service sites, is invalid and will be disqualified from this Promotion. Any attempt by any Entrant to
obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple email addresses, phone numbers, identities,
registrations, or logins; entries through a sweepstakes club or similar entity; or any other unauthorized method
of entry will void all of Entrant’s entries and Entrant will be disqualified from the entire Promotion. Submitting
mass entries or entries generated by an automated program, script, or macro, or the use of any other similar
device, program, or method to enter this Promotion is prohibited and will result in disqualification.
If an Entrant has provided a phone number and email address that is associated with two (2) different Michaels
Rewards member accounts, the member account associated with the email address will be used to determine
the identity of the Entrant. If an entry includes a phone number and email address which do not both match
an existing member account (i.e., the phone number is associated with an account but the email address is not,
or the email address is associated with an account but the phone number is not), whichever piece of entry
information that leads to a valid Michaels Rewards member account will be used and the other piece of
information will be defaulted to the information in the Michaels Rewards database.
In the event of a dispute as to the identity of Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used
to enter will be deemed to be Entrant. A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the
authorized account holder. The “authorized account holder” of an email address is the natural person assigned
to that email address by any organization (business, educational institution, etc.) responsible for assigning
accounts to that email address. If the identity of the individual who actually participated in the Promotion
cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected individual’s entry will be deemed ineligible.
Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, disqualify any individual it finds to be in violation of these Official Rules,
tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion (including without limitation, tampering
with websites, email addresses, or phone numbers), or acting in a non-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner.
Any attempt to undermine the operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal or civil law, and
Sponsor may seek damages to the fullest extent permitted by law from any person it finds to have made such
an attempt.

charges not specifically described as part of the prizes above are not included in the prizes. No compensation
or substitution will be provided for any difference in prize value. Sponsor is in no way responsible for any
cancellations, delays, postponements, diversions, substitutions, changes in service or any other act or omission,

value, except where required by law. Sponsor has made no warranty, representation or guarantee, express or
implied, in fact or in law, with respect to any prize. This includes, without limitation, any warranty,
representation or guarantee related to any prize’s quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Prizes are subject
to availability and Sponsor may substitute a prize (or a component thereof) with another prize of equal or
greater value if the prize is not available for any reason, as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Other prize
substitution options are available where required by law. All taxes and all other costs and expenses associated

remainder of the prize that is unused will be forfeited and will not be subject to further or additional
compensation.

winner is disqualified, not eligible, or for any other reason cannot accept the prize as stated, then Sponsor may

Where legal, the winner may be required to submit, without alteration and in the form provided by Sponsor, a
completed and signed Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability & Publicity Release (the “Release”), along with a
properly completed U.S. Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Form W-9, within the required
time period communicated in the Release to be eligible to receive or participate in any prize. The winner may

on a holiday, the Prize Drawing will be conducted the following business day.
Second Prize Drawings will take place according to the schedule set forth in Table 1. For each Entry Period’s

Periods for Second Prize Drawings in the Promotion Period. If any Prize Drawing is scheduled to take place on
a holiday, the Prize Drawing will be conducted the following business day. An Entrant can win one (1) Second

only one First Prize, only one Second Prize per Entry Period, and only one Third Prize per day.
Potential winners are each subject to eligibility verification, on an ongoing basis, by Sponsor, whose decisions

item of value, unless and until Entrant’s eligibility has been, and continues to be verified to the satisfaction
of Sponsor.
To be verified as eligible to receive a prize, each potential winner must fulfill all requirements and continue to
comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and not be disqualified for any reason. Each
potential winner will be notified by email address associated with their Michaels Rewards account (subject to
Sponsor’s discretion). If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted using the information provided,

winner fails to sign and return the Form W-9 and Release within two (2) business days of receipt, or any
potential winner fails to sign and return any other required documentation or fails to comply with these Official
Rules; if a potential winner is unable or unwilling to accept the prize (or any portion) as stated; or if the potential
winner cannot be verified as eligible for any reason at any time before, during, or after the Promotion Period,

and an alternate potential winner will be selected from among the remaining eligible entries based on the
Criteria.
A winner will be issued his/her prize at the email address associated with a valid Michaels Rewards member
account, if an existing member prior to entry, or at the email address provided in the entry if Entrant becomes
a member when entering the Promotion. Prizes may take up to ten (10) business days to be issued after return
of any required documentation to Sponsor.
In the event that an Entrant or potential winner is disqualified or fails to claim a prize for any reason, the
foregoing process will be repeated until all prizes are awarded, or until three attempts have been made to
award each prize and each attempt has failed. EXCEPT AS REQUIRED BY LAW, IF ANY PRIZE REMAINS

Promotion Period has not then expired.
EACH ENTRANT WAIVES CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542 (AND ALL SIMILAR LAWS OF ANY STATE OR TERRITORY
OF THE UNITED STATES), WHICH READS: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE
CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE,
WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” EACH
ENTRANT REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS FULL UNDERSTANDING OF, AND ACKNOWLEDGES THE SIGNIFICANCE
AND CONSEQUENCE OF, WAIVER OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE § 1542 (AND ALL SIMILAR LAWS OF ANY STATE
OR TERRITORY OF THE UNITED STATES).

consideration of any kind.

7
10. Right to Modify or Cancel. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will
not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event any provision is found invalid or
unenforceable, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect in accordance with their terms as if the
invalid or unenforceable provision was never included. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision of these
Official Rules does not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Sponsor may cancel, suspend or modify the Promotion or any part of it, in any way, if Sponsor determines in
its sole discretion that the Promotion is not capable of executing as Sponsor intended, or that any error,
omission, fraud, technical failure, tampering, computer virus, or other factor, technical or otherwise, beyond
Sponsor’s reasonable control, impairs or may impair Sponsor’s ability to properly conduct the Promotion,
subject to any applicable law or regulation. In such event, Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, award any
applicable prize by conducting a random drawing from among the eligible entries received up to the time of
the cancellation, suspension, or modification of the Promotion. Inclusion in such random drawing is Entrant’s
exclusive remedy under such circumstances.
In the event of an inconsistency between these Official Rules and any disclosure or other statement contained
in any Promotion-related materials, including without limitation, a Promotion entry form or any point-of-sale,
radio, television, print, or online advertising, these Official Rules will prevail and govern.
11. Disputes; CLASS ACTION WAIVER. Except where prohibited by law, Entrant agrees that: (1) all disputes,
claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded will be
resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and Entrant consents to the personal
jurisdiction of the appropriate federal or state court located in Dallas County, Texas for such purpose; and (2)
all claims, judgments and awards will be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs
associated with entering this Promotion, but in no event attorneys’ fees. All issues and questions concerning
the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights or obligations
of Entrant or Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, are governed by and construed in accordance with
the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules that would
cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
12. Privacy. Sponsor may collect and process Entrants’ Personal Information in connection with the Promotion
for the purposes of administering and managing the Promotion. This processing is in order to fulfill a contract
or take steps linked to a contract (including these Official Rules), and if such processing is not provided, Entrant
may not be able to enter into, and Sponsor may not be able to fulfill, the contract. Sponsor will retain the
Personal Information that Entrant provides in connection with the Promotion for a period reasonably necessary
for the purpose of administering and managing the Promotion, and may disclose such information in
connection with a public list of Promotion winners, or pursuant to any license granted to Sponsor by Entrant
under these Official Rules or the Release. Personal Information collected from Entrant is subject to Sponsor’s
privacy policy, which can be found at michaels.com/your-privacy-rights/ca-your-privacy-rights.html.
