Show Your Gratitude Sweepstakes


No Purchase Necessary TO ENTER OR WIN.  


ELIGIBILITY: Open Only to Legal Residents OF, AND RESIDING IN, THE fifty (50) UNITED STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, 13 years of age or older. Void Where Prohibited. An eligible minor should have a parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to participate. Employees (and their immediate families (spouse, and parents, children and siblings and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and those living in their same households, whether or not related) of Sephora USA, Inc. (“Sponsor”), its parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotion agencies are not eligible to enter or win. By participating, entrants (and, if eligible minors, their parents or legal guardians) agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and/or judges, which are binding and final on matters relating to this sweepstakes. Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.


SWEEPSTAKES PERIOD: The Sweepstakes will begin on May 27th 2020 at 12 p.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends May 28th 2020 at 12 p.m. ET (“Sweepstakes Period”).


HOW TO ENTER:  During the Sweepstakes Period, to enter, visit @Sephora’s profile page on Instagram, then find the post about this sweepstakes and tag a person who resides in the U.S. who is 18 or older in the comments to whom you want to show your gratitude. You cannot nominate yourself. Limit one (1) entry per person for the entire sweepstakes. All entries must be received by 12 p.m. ET on May 28th 2020. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means or by any means which subvert the entry process are void. Entries in excess of the stated entry limit will be void. You may not enter more times than indicated by using multiple accounts in an attempt to circumvent the entry limitation. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent these Official Rules, your entry may be void. Entries become the sole property of Sponsor. If you do not have an Instagram account, establishing an account is free. All Instagram terms apply.


Drawing:  For the avoidance of doubt, the individuals who are nominated will be eligible to receive the prize not the individual who nominated the individual. Potential winners will be selected in a random drawing held on or about May 28th 2020 from all eligible entries received. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Potential winners will be notified by direct message, comment on winning post or @reply and may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release within seven (7) days of date of issuance. If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or a potential winner is not in compliance with these rules, prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner will be selected. Only three (3) alternate winners will be selected after which the prize shall remain unawarded.


PrizeS And APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES (“ARV”) (5): $100 Sephora Gift Card (terms and conditions apply to use). ARV: $100 each. Total ARV of all prizes: $500. Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied. All federal, state and local taxes, if any, and all other costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided are the sole responsibility of the winners. Winners may not substitute, assign or transfer prize, but Sponsor reserve the right, at its sole discretion, to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Limit one (1) prize per person.
