Sweepstakes begins at 12:00:01am Central Time (“CT”) on each Tuesday and ends at 11:59:59pm CT on each Monday, starting May 29, 2017.



Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico, who are eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of entry (the “Entrant”). Void where prohibited, taxed or restricted by law. Officers, directors, managers, and employees of Ware Brands, Inc. (the “Sponsor”), and each of its respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates and related companies and their respective advertising and promotion agencies, consultants and agents, as well as immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of each such person, and any others engaged in the development, production, execution or distribution of this Sweepstakes (collectively the “Sweepstakes Entities”) are not eligible to participate. “Immediate family member” shall be deemed to mean husband, wife, children, mother, father, sister, sister in-law, brother or brother in-law. Sweepstakes may only be entered in or from the State of Illinois, and entries originating from any other jurisdiction are not eligible for entry. All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply (including Illinois Sweepstakes and Gaming Laws).


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

(i) PURCHASE:  Entrants making a purchase (of any amount) at a participating JB Hawks retail location during the Sweepstakes Period who are the recipient of a cash register receipt are automatically entered.  Just keep your cash register receipt, which bears your entry number.  No re-printed receipts will be accepted.

(ii) WRITE-IN:  On a postcard or a card that is no smaller than 3 ½ x 5 inches and no larger than 4 ¼ x 6 inches, legibly handwrite your complete name, mailing address, phone number (e-mail address if available) and date of birth and preferred JB Hawk retail store city, and mail with proper postage to Ware Brands, Inc.:  205 E. Morton Ave., Suite 10, Jacksonville, IL 62650 (the Ware Brands offices). All write-in entries received during a sweepstakes period will be assigned a numbered “no sale” cash register receipt, which can be picked up at the participating JB Hawk retail store specified in your entry request between 5 and 7 days after you mail your request, and will be issued on that date, and will be given equal mathematical odds of winning. There is a limit of one (1) write-in entry per envelope/postcard. Each envelope/postcard is considered one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. Multiple entries submitted or completed by anyone other than the Entrant are void. No mechanical reproductions will be accepted. Write-in entries must contain all entry fields outlined above; otherwise, they are void and will not be eligible to win.

Regardless of the entry method used to enter the Sweepstakes, there is a limit of ten (10) entries per Entrant for each Sweepstakes Period. Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, and/or any other methods will void that Entrant’s entry and that Entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. Entries submitted by anyone other than the Entrant are void. In case of dispute as to the identity of any Entrant, entry will be declared made by the registered name and address on such entry. Any potential prize winner may be requested to provide Sponsor with proof that such person is the prize winner.


Neither Sponsor nor any Sweepstakes Entity is responsible for any entry that is lost, late, illegible, stolen, mutilated, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, postage-due, misdirected or undeliverable, whether due to system errors, omissions, interruption, deletions, defects, delay in operations or transmissions, theft or destruction or failures, faulty transmissions or other telecommunications malfunctions, human error, entries not received resulting from any hardware or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, failed, incomplete or garbled computer or telephone transmissions, typographical or system errors and failures, faulty transmissions, technical malfunctions, or otherwise. Only fully completed entries are eligible. Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor or Sweepstakes Entity.



A random receipt number will be drawn by a computer each Tuesday at 2:00 a.m.  The Winning Receipt Number will then be clearly posted each Tuesday morning for that entire day at each participating store.  If the prize is not claimed by close of business on Tuesday at the specific participating store, then ROLLOVER occurs and adds another $50 to the Jackpot.  No prize may be claimed after Close of Business.

The random drawing will include all eligible entries received by the Sponsor. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible receipts issued for that particular drawing period at that specific participating store for the Sweepstakes. By entering the Sweepstakes, Entrants fully and unconditionally agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and Sweepstakes Entities, which will be final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes.



GRAND PRIZES: Fifty Dollars cash ($50.00) will be awarded each week at each participating JB Hawks retail establishment during the sweepstakes period, unless the prize is unclaimed, in which case the prize rolls over to the next week, and $50 is added, from week to week until claimed, at which time the next week’s drawing starts back at $50.


Limit of one (1) prize per person/household. All prizes are non-transferable or assigned and no substitutions or cash redemptions; except at Sponsor’s sole discretion or as otherwise provided herein. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes. Each prize winner is solely responsible for all applicable federal, state and local taxes, including taxes imposed on his/her income. No more than the stated number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. Potential prize winners consent to the use of his/her name, likeness, biographical information, and voice in advertising worldwide without additional compensation.



GRAND PRIZE: Prize winners will be notified solely by posting at the retail stores.
