If you receive a message that contains any message other than a winning prize message, you are not a prize winner.  Please note that some items may not be available at all participating stores, and as the Promotion Period progresses, some participating stores may run out of specially marked products with Codes before others and these may not be resupplied.  Specially marked bars will not be available for purchase in Lindt chocolate retail stores, or through the Website.

(b)           Free Code online. To obtain a free Code online without making a purchase, visit the Lindt EXCELLENCE brand page during the Promotion Period at, follow the links and instructions to complete the online registration form as described above and click where indicated to obtain a free Code. You will automatically receive a complementary Code for entry into the Instant Win Game.    Enter your Code and find out if you are a potential winner (subject to verification) of the Instant Win Game.  If you receive a message that contains any message other than a winning prize message, you are not a prize winner.

Each Code, obtained via either method of entry, may only be used once during the Promotion Period.

For all potential Instant Win Game winners via either entry method:  If you are identified as a potential Instant Win Game Winner, your winning notification will include instructions on how to claim your First Prize (as defined in Rule 6). All potential First Prize winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded. You are not a winner of any prize until notified by Sponsor that verification is complete.   SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS.  ANY ENTRY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE ENTRY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.

Sweepstakes Grand Prize Drawing:  Each verified First Prize winner will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes Grand Prize drawing.  Only verified First Prize winners are eligible to enter the Sweepstakes Grand Prize drawing.  If you are not a verified First Prize winner, you are not eligible to enter the Sweepstakes Grand Prize drawing.

Limit. Entrants may only enter one (1) Code obtained via either entry method per day.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than one (1) Code entry per day during the Promotion Period by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entry and that entrant may be disqualified.  In the event of a dispute as to the ownership of any email address, the authorized account holder of the email address used to participate will be deemed to be the owner. 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. Entrants may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.

The methods for obtaining an entry, as detailed above in these Official Rules are the only legitimate channels (“Legitimate Channels”) for obtaining entries. The purchase, sale, trading or barter of Codes via online or live auctions, or any other method, do not constitute Legitimate Channels and are expressly prohibited.

  1. Winner Selection. Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Promotion and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. The winner selection method for the First Prizes will be such that every 100th entrant who submits an eligible entry during the Promotion Period will be a potential First Prize winner (subject to verification), while the specified supply of First Prizes last. If an insufficient number of eligible entries are received during the Promotion Period resulting in the awarding of less than the 100 First Prizes advertised in these Official Rules, Sponsor will conduct a random drawing on or around November 1, 2016, from among all non-winning eligible entries received during the Promotion Period until a total of 100 First Prize winners have been selected (subject to verification). Sponsor will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner from among all verified First Prize winners on or around November 15, 2016.
  1. Prizes/Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”)/Odds. ONE HUNDRED (100) INSTANT WIN GAME FIRST PRIZES: A Lindt EXCELLENCE chocolate prize pack, containing an assortment of five (5) Lindt EXCELLENCE chocolate bars, flavors determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. ARV: $15. ARV of First Prizes: $1,500. ONE (1) SWEEPSTAKES GRAND PRIZE: A Year Supply of Lindt EXCELLENCE bars, flavors determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, awarded as one shipment to the Grand Prize winner of approximately 576 bars. ARV of Grand Prize: $1,722.24. Total ARV of all prizes: $3,222.24. All prizes are non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason.  Winners are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use.  Odds of winning an Instant Win Game First Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period and the time of entry.  Limit: One (1) First Prize per person. Odds of a verified Instant Win Game First Prize winner winning the Sweepstakes Grand Prize depends on the total number of verified Instant Win Game First Prize winners, but is approximately 1:100.  Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Promotion.

The number of First Prizes available for the Instant Win Game will diminish as prizes are claimed throughout the Promotion Period.  Sponsor disclaims any and all liability for continuing to advertise such prizes.

  1. Winner Verification. Receiving a prize is contingent upon full and unconditional compliance with these Official Rules. The potential Instant Win Game and Sweepstakes winners will be notified by email or phone. First Prizes must be claimed within five (5) days of notification or attempted notification by Sponsor, or potential First Prize winner forfeits his/her First Prize.  The potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release and IRS Form W-9, which must be received by Sponsor, within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the Grand Prize.  If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, or (in the case of the Grand Prize) fails to sign and return the Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release and IRS Form W-9, or provide any other requested information within the required time period (if applicable), prize is returned as undeliverable, or entrant or entry is disqualified, potential winner forfeits the prize.  Unclaimed and forfeited First Prizes will remain unawarded.  In the event that a potential winner of the Grand Prize is disqualified for any reason or cannot be contacted, Sponsor will award the Grand Prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which the Grand Prize will remain unawarded.

No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
Sponsor will attempt to notify each potential winner as set forth above, but Sponsor is not responsible for any undelivered emails, including without limitation emails that are not received because of a winner’s privacy or spam filter settings which may divert any Promotion related email, including any winner notification email or prize email to a spam or junk folder. Entrants should check their spam folders for any winner notification email or prize email.

Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the registration process or the operation of the Promotion or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion 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 a waiver of that provision.
