Period and ending at 11:59:59 PM PT the following Tuesday.

 

4.    HOW TO ENTER: There are two (2) ways
to enter:

 

AUTOMATIC ENTRY: An eligible
Alaska Airlines Visa cardholder will automatically receive one (1) entry
into the Grand Prize Drawing and one (1) entry into a Weekly Drawing for
each single purchase transaction they make with their Alaska Airlines Visa
card during the Promotion Period. The date and time of an eligible
purchase will determine the Weekly Drawing for which the entry is eligible.
Entries which are eligible for a Weekly Drawing will not be eligible for any
subsequent Weekly Drawing(s). Each Alaska Airlines Visa card purchase must
be made within the U.S. during the Promotion Period in order to be valid. The
value of a purchase will not increase or decrease your chances of winning
a prize; however, the value of each eligible single purchase transaction
will determine the value of Weekly Prizes as detailed below in Rule #7. Only
payments made with an Alaska Airlines Visa card that is not in default
under the customer agreement for that account and issued by Bank of
America, N.A., processed through Visa U.S.A. Inc.’s transaction-processing
system during the Promotion Period are eligible for automatic entry. Purchases
of goods and services must be at a participating merchant location in the
U.S. In the event of a dispute as to who submitted a particular cardholder
entry, such entry will be deemed to be submitted by the primary person in
whose name the card used to enter the Sweepstakes was issued; However, in
the event the cardholder entry is made using an Alaska Airlines Visa
Business card, such entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person
whose Mileage Plan member number is assigned to earn miles and rewards on
the Business card account. Additionally, in the event a cardholder entry
is made using an Alaska Airlines Visa Business card designated as an
individual account in a corporate bill structure, such entry will be
deemed to be submitted by the owner/authorized officer of the Business
entity associated with the Business Card Agreement. See the Alaska
Airlines Visa® Business Program Rules for complete details on Business
Level and Individual Level Earning. Account adjustment
transactions/returns, cash advances, balance transfers, non-U.S.-dollar
purchases, Interlink®-processed transactions, purchases authorized by
entering a PIN (personal identification number), and payment of late fees
or over-limit fees are excluded from automatic entry. Other restrictions
may apply. Alaska Airlines Visa cards or card numbers that are stolen,
fraudulent, tampered with, or otherwise altered are not eligible for
automatic entry. Automatic entries must be made by 11:59:59 PM PT on December
29, 2020, in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing. Automatic
entries must be made within the period stated in the chart below in order
to be eligible for the applicable Weekly Drawing.

postmarked by December 29, 2020 and received by January 6, 2021. Two Hundred

a series of Weekly Drawings from among all eligible entries received for each

Release (“Declaration”), where legal which must be received within forty-eight
(48) hours of notification. Non-compliance within this time frame and/or with these

alternate potential Grand Prize winner. Each Weekly Prize winner and the Grand
Prize winner (once confirmed) will receive their prize credited to their Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ account within
8-10 weeks of the drawing date indicated in the chart above in Rule #4. Weekly winners

and one (1) Weekly Prize per person during the Promotion Period.

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ Terms and Conditions, which are subject to change
at any time without notice and can be found at https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/terms-and-conditions.aspx. Mileage earned through non-flight activity does not count toward

including without limitation with respect to the accumulation of mileage and
the satisfaction of the qualification requirements for Elite status, will be
made by Alaska Airlines and Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ in their discretion
