OFFICIAL RULES
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF
ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING
1. HOW TO ENTER: Oprah’s Favorite Things Instant Win Sweepstakes (the
“Sweepstakes”): Look for the Instant Win Sweepstakes code (“Official Code”) in the
December 2018 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine (“the Magazine”), available via subscription
beginning approximately 11/20/18 and at newsstands approximately 11/20/18 to 12/10/18 (while
supplies last). Exact dates may vary depending on newsstand. There are two (2) ways to enter:
Beginning 12/10/18 at 12:01 AM (ET) through 12/14/18 at 11:59 PM (ET), either (i) go to
oprah.com/instantwin18 on a computer or wireless device and complete and submit the entry
form pursuant to the on-screen instructions, including the twelve-digit alphanumeric Official
Code, which can be found on the “What I Know For Sure” page of the December 2018 issue of
O, The Oprah Magazine; or (ii) send an email to instantwin18@hearst.com from a computer or
wireless device and you will receive an automatic reply containing the Official Code; then follow
the directions in subsection (i). Immediately upon entry, entrants will receive a pop-up window
informing them of their non-winner status or that they will be receiving an email from a
representative of O, The Oprah Magazine to verify their information and confirm whether that
entrant is a winner. IMPORTANT NOTICE: You may be charged for visiting the mobile
website in accordance with the terms of your service agreement with your carrier. Please consult
your wireless service provider regarding your pricing plan. You must use a Smartphone device to
participate via your mobile phone. Not all mobile phone providers carry the necessary service to
participate. Check your phone capabilities for specific Internet instructions. If your data usage
exceeds what is allotted by your data plan, you could be subject to additional fees by your
carrier. Please contact your mobile service provider with any questions regarding your bill.
2. WINNER SELECTION: All eligible entries will be time-stamped on the date of receipt.
One (1) potential winner (“Potential Winner”) will be selected during the Entry Period from
among all eligible entries received using a predetermined winning date and time (or, if no one
submits the Official Code at the pre-determined winning date and time, the first subsequent entry
will be declared the Potential Winner). Immediately upon entry, entrants will see a pop-up
window informing them of their non-winner status or informing them that they will be receiving
an email from a representative of O, The Oprah Magazine to verify their information and
confirm whether that entrant is a winner (“Winner”). The Potential Winner will be notified by
the representative that they have potentially won the prize specified, subject to verification of
eligibility and the terms of these Official Rules. The winning date and time is randomly
predetermined by the Sponsor, whose decisions are final on all matters relating to this
Sweepstakes. If the pop-up window contains any message other than the message stating that the
entrant will be receiving an email from a representative of O, The Oprah Magazine to verify
his/her information and confirm whether that entrant is the Winner, the entrant is not a Potential
Winner. The odds of winning are the same regardless of method of entry. In the event the
Sponsor does not receive any eligible entries or the Potential Winners are not eligible or
otherwise fail to comply with these Official Rules within the time specified, the Sponsor has the
right to cancel the Sweepstakes without any liability to any Potential Winner or any other
entrant.
