Eligibility: The Home Depot POWERADE® World Cup Promotion (the “Promotion”) is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States (and the District of Columbia) who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. The Promotion consists of an eDecoder game (the “eDecoder Game”) and a Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”).
Timing: The Promotion begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET"), May 1, 2010 and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET, June 30, 2010 (the "Promotion Period"). Administrator’s computer is the official time-keeping device for this Promotion.
How to Enter: You will need to obtain an eDecoder and a 10 digit code ("Code") to participate in the Promotion. There are 2 ways to obtain a Code:
a. Purchase POWERADE®: During the Promotion Period, purchase specially-marked 8-pack 20oz. bottles of POWERADE® from participating Home Depot store locations. Locate the Code on the eDecoder included on-pack while supplies last.
b. Free Code
: Follow the links and instructions and you will receive a Code to participate in the Promotion via automated email. If you obtain a free Code through this method, you can use a virtual eDecoder after you register for the Promotion to participate in the eDecoder Game. Limit: 1 request per day.
All requests must be received by June 30, 2010.
Once you have obtained a Code during the Promotion Period, visit and follow the links and instructions to complete the registration. Complete and submit the registration, including a valid home address and the Code. P.O. Boxes are not permitted. You will be required to submit a new Code each day you login to the Promotion during the Promotion Period. You will receive 1 Sweepstakes entry and 1 eDecoder Game play for that day. If you have a physical eDecoder, place it over the scrambled image on your monitor to reveal the hidden message; if you do not have a physical eDecoder use your mouse to drag the virtual eDecoder over the scrambled image. The eDecoder Game results will be instantly displayed. Entrants will be notified immediately by email if they are potential winners of the eDecoder Game and will be provided directions for validation. All potential winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded. Administrator is responsible for the functionality of the eDecoder Game. The eDecoder Game is not compatible with systems using Opera Web Browsers. Limit: 1 Sweepstakes entry and 1 eDecoder Game play per day during the Promotion Period.
Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries/plays by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations or logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s entries/plays and that participant may be disqualified. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar entry/play methods or agents (including, but not limited to, sweepstakes entry services) will void all entries/plays by that entrant.
