How to Enter the Sweepstakes

No purchase is required or necessary to enter, play, win or claim a prize; and a purchase or payment will not increase your odds or chances of winning.

Regardless of the method of entry, you will receive one sweepstakes entry into the applicable Weekly Entry Period drawing and one sweepstakes entry into the Grand Prize Entry Period drawing. Non-winning entries will not carryover into subsequent Weekly Entry Period drawings.

Although required for entry, your description will not be considered in the winner selection process; however, in order for your entry to be eligible for the random drawing, the description must be in compliance with the official rules — including content requirements.

You may enter one time per day during the promotion period — only one entry per person, per household, per e-mail address per day during the promotion period will be permitted — regardless of the method of entry, of which you have a choice of two methods of entering the Tap the App Sweepstakes:

  1. Choice Hotels Mobile Software Application Program During the Promotion Period:
    1. Download the Choice Hotels mobile software application program — also known as the “App” — to a mobile electronic device free of charge, if you have not already previously done so.
    2. Follow the links and instructions to complete and submit the registration form with a valid e-mail address and your Choice Privileges membership number.
  2. Mail-In Alternate Method of Entry To enter without downloading the mobile software application program:
    1. On a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper, hand print your…
      1. Name
      2. Address
      3. Day and evening telephone numbers
      4. E-mail address, and
      5. Date of birth
    2. Mail it in an envelope with proper postage to:
      Tap the App Sweepstakes
      c/o HelloWorld, Inc.
      P.O. Box 5006
      Department 833640
      Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5006
      United States of America
    3. There is a limit of one entry per envelope. All mail-in entries must be handwritten; and must be postmarked by — and received by — the dates listed.

Prizes

Three grand prizes of 400,000 points each will be deposited into the Choice Privileges membership account of each winner. The approximate retail value of each grand prize is $2,808.00 in United States dollars.

90 weekly prizes of 100,000 points each — ten will be awarded for each Weekly Entry Period — will be deposited into the Choice Privileges membership account of each winner. The approximate retail value of each of these prizes is $702.00 in United States dollars.

The total approximate retail value for all prizes combined is $71,604.00 in United States dollars.

Select Official Rules

There is a limit of one sweepstakes prize per person. Any attempt to exceed the entry limit by using multiple or different e-mail addresses, identities, registrations, Choice Privileges membership numbers or log-ins, or any other methods will void all of the entries submitted by the entrant, who will then be disqualified.

Winner must be or become a member of the Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program at the time of entry to receive a prize. The Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program is free to join and open to individuals 18 years of age or older.

If you are earning frequent flier loyalty program miles or Amtrak Guest Rewards instead of Choice Privileges points, you are still eligible for the bonus.

The potential winners will be notified by mail, e-mail message or telephone. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately ten weeks after the conclusion of the promotion.

To ensure that you receive notification e-mail messages, you should add customercare@m.helloworldmail.com to your address book. Winners will be notified via the contact information provided upon registration — either by mail, e-mail message or telephone.

You cannot use a post office box as your address to enter the sweepstakes.

Other official rules, terms and conditions apply — be sure that you read all of them carefully and agree with them before participating in the sweepstakes — which include but are not limited to those dealing with the topics of:

  • Privacy and personal information
  • Release and limitations of liability
  • Selection and verification of winners
  • Winner notification procedure
  • Disqualification of participants
  • Criteria and restrictions pertaining to claiming and using prizes once they are won
  • Rights
  • Publicity
  • Tax liability
  • Technical issues
  • Legal waivers and statements
  • Unclaimed prizes
  • Cancellation or postponement of prizes
  • How to find out the names of the winners
  • What can potentally happen in the event of a dispute
  • Burden of proof of submission of entry
  • Typographical errors
  • Other disclaimers and conditions of participation

Summary

Could you be one of the 93 winners of Choice Privileges points? Perhaps — if you enter the sweepstakes…

…but be forewarned that you might encounter difficulties downloading the mobile software application program to your portable electronic device and registering for this promotion, as apparently was the experience of Ric Garrido of Loyalty Traveler.

I personally do not intend to participate in this promotion; but I wish you the best of luck and hope you are one of the winners if you decide to participate.
