Each week @Coinstar is giving away a year’s worth of gas and groceries, not to mention a stack of gift cards. It’s going to be GINORMOUS, so enter today.
Sept 30 Update: I contacted @Coinstarcares on Twitter back in August and they told me that it was going to now be a 3 x 5 card in an envelope with one entry per person per week. Now it seems they have taken it back and we are back to square one not knowing what the real entry rules are. You will have to decide for yourself how to enter.
The original rules:
Eligibility: US, 18+ as of August 22, 2011.
Entry Dates: begins on August 22, 2011 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. on October 2, 2011
How to Enter: two ways
At Coinstar Machines: upon converting at least $10 U.S. dollars in coins into a voucher (redeemable for cash, no-fee eCertificate, card or charity donation at any participating Coinstar Kiosk during the Promotion Period (a processing fee applies), you will receive a print out with a code that will allow you to enter the Sweepstakes online at www.coinstar.com/ginormous_fillup
Mail: enter by hand printing your full name, home address (no PO Boxes), telephone number and age as of August 22, 2011 on a 3-1/2″ x 5″ postcard and mailing the card to:
Coinstar’s Ginormous Gas & Grocery Fill Up
P.O. Box 5005
Clinton, IA 52736-5005
One entry per outer postmarked envelope. Mailed entries must be postmarked by October 3, 2011 and received by October 6, 2011. Entries must be handwritten.
You may enter as often as you wish, however limit one entry per outer postmarked envelope.
Yes, the rules are confusing. Do you send a postcard, which never goes into an envelope, or send a card in an envelope. You decide!
Entries will not rollover from one Weekly Entry Period Drawing into subsequent Weekly Entry Period Drawings.
