I hope not; I don’t recall that being a requirement but they took down the rules so unable to confirm. As I recall, I was rushing to get an entry into this one in the last few minutes of the last day, so didn’t have time to sign up for the club. ePrize only asked for my mailing address so assuming I can just join the club any time to redeem, but would like to verify if anyone here knows for sure.
