Contest Description

The Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (“Walmart”) Walmart Eat Healthy Together (“Contest”) asks Twitter users to participate in Walmart Eat Healthy Together by eating healthy meals together at least three times a week throughout the summer. Track your progress by capturing photos or sharing updates on Twitter accompanied by the hashtags #EatHealthyTogether #Contest (“Submission”). Every Monday, during the Promotion Period, one winner will be randomly selected to win a $25 Walmart gift card (“Prize”).

By providing a Submission and participating in the Contest, Entrant agrees to abide by the official rules listed below (“Official Rules”) and the terms and conditions listed below (“Terms and Conditions”). An “Entrant” is a Contest participant who provides a Submission.

Official Rules

No purchase necessary to enter or win. Promotion runs for 5 weeks, starting at 12:01 AM CST on June 30, 2014 through 9:59 AM CST on August 4, 2014 (“Promotion Period”). Tweets submitted before or after the Promotion Period will not be eligible for the Prize.  Walmart’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Promotion. 

            Every Monday during the Promotion Period, one Participant will be randomly selected using the “Twitter Draw” tool to win one $25 Walmart gift card. Drawings will be based on all qualifying Submissions tweeted as of the contest start date. Your chance of winning is based on the total number of qualifying tweets. That means at the beginning of the Contest, your chances of winning will be better than at the end of the Promotion Period, because the volume of qualifying Submissions will increase over the Promotion Period.

1.     Follow @WalmartHealthy on Twitter

2.     Post photos or updates of you and your family eating healthy meals together.  Include hashtags #EatHealthyTogether #Contest in Submission.

3.     While you are welcome to post as many tweets as you like, you may be disqualified for posting duplicate or near-duplicate tweets repeatedly, which is a violation of Twitter’s Rules. Besides, no one wants to see the same tweet multiple times. Please exercise creativity and be courteous.

4.     To be eligible for the Prize drawing each Monday, your tweet must appear on Twitter (with the #EatHealthyTogether #Contest hashtags) by Monday 10:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

5.     Don’t forget – since this contest is being held on Twitter, you need to comply with the Twitter Rules, too.

Entries by a single individual via multiple Twitter accounts are prohibited. Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any entries that it believes in good-faith are generated by a so-called spam or automated e-mail program or via scripts and automated submission.

Winners will be announced via Twitter weekly. They will be notified via a direct message on Twitter by @WalmartHealthy and asked to provide their physical address to send the Prize. Winner must cooperate with the request to provide more details and claim their Prize within three business days after the date of notification of winning such Prize or forfeit the Prize to an alternate winner to be selected from the pool of eligible Submissions. The number of eligible Submissions received determines the odds of winning.
