2019-20 Panini NBA Player of the Day Sweepstakes OFFICIAL RULES
In-store entry: Upon a qualifying purchase, the consumer will open a pack of 2019-20 Officially Licensed Panini NBA Player Trading Cards in the store to see if their pack(s) of cards has a trading card of the highlighted NBA Player of the Day or Wild Card indicated on the in-store point-of-purchase display (P-O-P). When a consumer uncovers the Panini NBA Player of the Day or Wild Card in their pack, the consumer is a “daily winner” and receives a prize. Four times during the promotion, each hobby store will choose its Panini NBA Player of the Week. The “weekly winner” will be randomly selected by the hobby store from all “daily winners" for each week of the promotion and receive a prize. At the end of each participating hobby shop’s promotion period on/around April 19, 2020, each shop will select its Panini NBA Player of the Month. The Panini NBA Player of the Month will be selected at random from each shop's "weekly winners" during the preceding promotion period. Winner need not be present to win as Panini Player of the Week or Month. Each monthly winner will then be entered in the National Sweepstakes drawing either by mail, fax or the website (PaniniPOD.com) with all other monthly winners.
No purchase necessary. Purchase does not improve chance of winning. Promotion will begin on February 17, 2020 and run through April 19, 2020 (the Promotion Period). To enter, purchase at least one (1) pack of 2019-20 Officially Licensed Panini NBA Player Trading Cards during the Promotion Period in a participating Panini NBA Player of the Day promotion hobby shop or send a 3”x5” card with your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and age. Place it in an envelope and mail it to: NBAPOD, Dept. A, PO Box 998, Commack, NY 11725. Each participating hobby shop will participate in the promotion for thirty (30) days during the Promotion Period. All mail-in entry forms must be postmarked by April 7, 2020 and received by April 19, 2020. Limit: one entry per envelope. No reproduced or facsimile entries will be accepted. All entries must be legible and completed in full to be valid.
By-mail entry: For each mail-in entry, sponsor will randomly assign a card pack from a box of Panini NBA Trading Cards for each day of the promotion. The postmark date of the mail-in entry will be used to determine the applicable Panini NBA Player of the Day for identifying daily winners. The featured Panini NBA Player of the Day for February 17, 2020 will be the first player pictured on the point-of-purchase material. This will continue for all mail-in entries received by April 19, 2020 to determine the by-mail daily winners. If the randomly assigned card pack includes the designated Panini NBA Player of the Day or Wild Card, the entry will be designated as a daily winner and will receive a daily prize. At the end of the promotion, four entries will be randomly selected from the daily winners as "Panini NBA Player of the Week" winners. The four Panini NBA Player of the Week winners will receive the weekly prize. Those four winners will then be entered in the random mail-in entry drawing for the Panini NBA Player of the Month prize. The Panini NBA Player of the Month drawing for mail-in entries will take place on or around May 15, 2020. The Panini NBA Player of the Month mail-in winner will be entered in the National Sweepstakes drawing with all other monthly winners from the in-store entries. All winners via the mail-in method of entry will be notified at the end of the promotion that they have won by receiving their prize by mail.
