To enter the Sweepstakes via Instagram or Facebook, you must be a registered member of Instagram or Facebook with a public profile. Becoming a member of Instagram or Facebook and entry into the Sweepstakes are free. Entrants must log into their Instagram or Facebook account and post a photo of themselves with a Pepsi product using the hashtag #GameDayReadySweeps (“Instagram or Facebook Entry”). You will receive an entry into the Sweepstakes on the day the Instagram or Facebook post is made. Instagram or Facebook Entries will be collectively known as “Social Media Entry”. Each Social Media Entry must be a photo of themselves with a Pepsi product.

To enter online without making a purchase or without posting a photo, go to (the “Website”) and complete the online form by providing your complete name, daytime phone number, email address and date of birth
(“Website Entry”). Then agree to the Official Rules and submit the online form.

Use of the hashtag #GameDayReadySweeps constitutes your unconditional acceptance to these Official Rules. Social Media Entry and Website Entry may be collectively referred to as “Entries” or “Entry”. Proof of submitting an Entry does not constitute proof of delivery. Every Entry must be manually keystroked and manually entered by the individual entrant; automated and/or repetitive electronic submission of entries (including but not limited to entries made using any script, macro, bot or Game service) will be disqualified and transmissions from these or related e-mail or IP addresses may be blocked. Limit one (1) Entry per household per day regardless of the method of entry. A “day” is defined as a twenty-four (24) hour time period beginning at 12:00:00 a.m. ET (midnight) and ending at 11:59:59 p.m. ET. The time clock of the Sweepstakes administrator is the official clock for this Sweepstakes.

Social Media Entry Requirements:

•Social Media Entry must be in English.

•All entries must be received within the Sweepstakes Period and prior to the applicable Entry deadline to be eligible for the Drawing.

•Social Media Entries must remain on your Instagram or Facebook account throughout the Sweepstakes Period. If you delete your Social Media Entry during the Sweepstakes Period, your Social Media Entry may be deemed void and become ineligible.

•Each Social Media Entry must be your original work; it may not have won a previous promotion or an award; it must not infringe any third party’s intellectual property or other rights; it must be suitable for display (i.e., may not be obscene or indecent, including but not limited to nudity or profanity); it must not contain obscene or pornographic material; it must not contain defamatory statements (including but not limited to words or symbols that are widely considered offensive to individuals of a certain race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic group); it must not include threats to any person, place, business, group or world peace; it must not invade privacy or other rights of any person, firm or entity, and it must not in any other way violate applicable laws and regulations.

•Each Social Media Entry must not feature or reference any commercial products and/or company trademarks, logos, brands or endorsements (including third party logos on street scenes, panoramic views, vehicle license plates, clothing such as t-shirts, hats, etc.) of any third party, except that Social Media Entry may contain Sponsor or Promotion Party-owned logos.

•Each Social Media Entry must not contain any copyrighted works.

All Social Media Entries may be reviewed for content; however, such review does not relieve Entrant from responsibility for compliance with these Official Rules. Entries that do not comply with these Official Rules or that otherwise contain prohibited or inappropriate content as determined by the Sponsor, in their sole discretion, will be disqualified and will not be considered for prizes. Sponsor makes the final determination as to which entries are eligible to take part in this Sweepstakes. From time to time during the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, choose to feature certain Entries on the Website. Being featured on the Website in no way impacts the likelihood of success of the Entrant becoming a winner nor does the inclusion of the Entry on the Website indicate that Sponsor deems the Entry to be a good example of an acceptable Entry, or does it indicate Sponsor’s preference for the Entry. The name of the person submitting an Entry into the Sweepstakes must be the name of the authorized account holder of the social media account or email address used to enter, otherwise, Entry may be deemed void. In the event of a dispute over the identity of a potential winner, entries will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the social media account or email address used for the Entry submitted, and the potential winner may be required to provide identification sufficient to show that he/she is the authorized account holder. It is solely the responsibility of the entrant to notify the Sponsor in writing if the entrant changes his or her Instagram account or email address used to enter the Sweepstakes during the Sweepstakes Period.
