Limit: Each Entrant may earn one (1) game play during the Promotion Period for registering for the
Promotion/viewing the Onboarding; each Entrant may earn up to two (2) game plays per day during
the Promotion Period by either making up to two (2) purchase transactions with a registered
Starbucks Card or App; or up to two (2) “free” requests; or a combination of the purchase and free
entry method for a total of two (2) plays per day.
Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or Account. Each Entrant is
limited to only one (1) Account. Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number
of plays by using multiple/different email addresses, Accounts, identities, registrations and logins,
or any other methods will void that Entrant’s plays and that Entrant may be disqualified. Use of any
automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not
responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which will
be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any registration or play, the authorized account holder
of the Starbucks Rewards account or 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 organization responsible for assigning
email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be
required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
5. Safe and Appropriate Use of Augmented Reality Game: Be sure to be aware of your
surroundings while using the augmented reality services of the game. You agree that such use is
at your own risk and that you will not use the services to violate any applicable law or regulation.
You agree that in conjunction with your use of the augmented reality services you will not make
available any unlawful, inappropriate, or commercial content.
In using the augmented reality services, you agree to maintain safe and appropriate contact with
other players and other people in the real world. You will not harass threaten or otherwise violate
the legal rights of others. You will not trespass and will not otherwise engage in any activity that
may result in personal injury, death, property damage, nuisance, or liability of any kind.
You agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Administrator, and each of their respective direct
or indirect parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, related entities, suppliers, distributors,
advertising/promotion agencies and each such company’s officers, directors, members,
employees, contractors, and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any and
all losses, liability, illness, injury, claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal
injury, death, property damage, nuisance, or liability of any kind, arising out of use of the augmented
reality services.
6. Sweepstakes/Instant Win Game Functionality: Administrator is an independent judging
organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Promotion and the
selection of potential winners for each are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion.
For the Sweepstakes: Administrator will randomly select each potential Sweepstakes winner from
all eligible entries for each respective prize pool received during the Promotion Period on or around
April 9, 2020. For the Instant Win Game: There will be two million five hundred and four thousand
four hundred (2,504,400) random, computer-generated winning times, one for each prize listed
below, during the Promotion Period. If you are the first player to play the game at or after one of
the randomly generated times, you will be a potential instant winner of the prize indicated.
7. Verification of Sweepstakes and Instant Win Game Winners: All potential winners are subject
to verification by Sponsor or Administrator. 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
potential winning play/entry has 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.
Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. Each potential winner
(parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) of a prize valued at or over
$600 will be sent an email to the email address associated with his/her Account and required to
sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and where not prohibited a Publicity
Release (“Declaration”), and an IRS Form W-9 which must be received by Administrator, within
three (3) 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, or fails to sign and return the Declaration, tax forms or
any other requested information within the required time period, potential winner forfeits the prize.
In the event that a potential Sweepstakes prize winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will
award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all eligible entries.
There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which the applicable prize will remain unawarded.
Unclaimed Instant Win Game prizes will not be awarded. Sweepstakes prizes will be fulfilled
approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Promotion (unless otherwise noted below);
Instant Win Game prizes will be fulfilled within thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the Promotion
(unless otherwise noted below).

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 to all eligible entrants who have registered 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 damages from any such person to the fullest extent
permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute

awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause

all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.
13. Disputes: Except where prohibited, Entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and

governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Washington, without giving
effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Washington or any other
jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State
of Washington.
