NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. MAKING A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. YOU DO NOT NEED THE T-MOBILE TUESDAYS APP TO PARTICIPATE. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
1. OVERVIEW: This T-Mobile Tuesdays Game Week #15 (the "Game") begins at 5:00:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, and ends at 4:59:59 a.m. ET on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 ("Promotion Day"). This Game is associated with a larger promotional campaign that Sponsor (defined below) operates via its T-Mobile Tuesdays App ("App"). These Official Rules apply only to the individual Game identified above and not any of the other activities offered via the App, including the T-Mobile customer exclusive offers available in the App ("Customer Exclusive(s)"). Customer Exclusives and other promotional activities are separate from the Game and will be subject to their own terms and conditions. By participating in the Game, you are agreeing to be bound by the decisions of Sponsor (defined below), which are final and binding with respect to all aspects of the Game. If you play the Game via the App or the Game Site, the end of your Game experience may include a Game animation; however, winning the Game is determined solely based on the time at which you clicked the Play Now button within the App, Game Site or AMOE Page (each term defined below) and not on the outcome of any Game animation. Game animations are purely for entertainment purposes.
2. ELIGIBILITY: The Game is open to legal residents of any one (1) of the fifty (50) United States, District of Columbia or Puerto Rico (collectively, the "Territory"), who are at least thirteen (13) years of age at the time of participation (each an eligible "Participant"). Employees, officers, directors, agents and representatives of T-Mobile USA, Inc., the prize partner PetSmart, Inc. ("Prize Partner"), their respective parent companies, affiliates or subsidiaries, and any other party participating in the development, design, administration or fulfillment of this Game (all of the foregoing entities and individuals, together, "Released Parties"), and the immediate family members of any such individual (spouse, IRS-dependent, biological, foster, in-law, adoptive or step- mother, father, sister, brother, child, husband or wife, and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside), and those living in the same household of any such individuals, whether or not related, are not eligible. This Game is void where restricted or prohibited by law.
To Be Eligible To Win: Winning any prize requires that the potential winner of the prize is, and remains, in compliance with these Official Rules. Until a potential winner is verified to be eligible and in compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winner is, and will remain, a potential prize winner, unless the potential winner is disqualified for not complying with the Official Rules, including for playing via more than one method (App, Game Site and/or AMOE Page (both terms defined below)) and/or not being eligible to participate in the Game. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any potential winner who Sponsor determines is not permitted by law to receive a prize. Sponsor reserves the right to refrain from conducting any advertising or publicity associated with a winner for any reason. Corporations and companies (any type) cannot be winners in this Game and are not entitled to any prizing won by their employees. Only natural people can be winners in this Game.
3. HOW TO ENTER: During the Promotion Day, eligible Participants can use the T-Mobile Tuesdays App (the "App"), visit the T-Mobile Tuesdays website ((www.T-MobileTuesdays.com) ) ("Game Site") or visit the AMOE Page (defined below) to participate in the Game. NOTE: Participation through the App and Game Site is available only to current T-Mobile customers (except T-Mobile pre-paid customers, who may only play through the App or the AMOE Page); non-customers may participate in the Game, but must do so using the AMOE Page. AMOE Page and Game Site Participants have the same odds of winning as those Participants entering via the App.
(i) Via the T-Mobile Tuesdays App:
The T-Mobile Tuesdays App is available for iOS and Android download through iTunes and Google Play. Once the App is successfully downloaded, new Participants may begin the registration process required in order to participate in this Game, which includes accepting the App Terms and Conditions. Standard message and data rates may apply. Participants will be asked to enter a T-Mobile phone number. Note: If a Participant becomes signed out by any means, they will need to go through registration again.
Participants who enter a valid and eligible T-Mobile phone number will be sent an SMS text with a confirmation code. This code must be entered into the "ENTER YOUR CONFIRMATION CODE" field in order to confirm their phone number (you can choose to participate without receiving an SMS text by visiting the AMOE Page described below). Upon successfully entering the confirmation code and selecting "ENTER" or similar button, the Participant, if validated, will see a confirmation screen. Upon clicking "START IT UP" or similar button, the Game will open for the Participant to begin. Already registered Participants may open the App and will not need to go through the verification process again. Participants should then tap "PLAY NOW" to agree to the Official Rules and to play the Game animation. Winning the Game is determined based on the time at which you clicked the "PLAY NOW" or similar button and not on the outcome of the Game animation. The Game animation is purely for entertainment purposes. You will be shown a screen that indicates if you are a winner. If you are a winner, follow the instructions to redeem your prize.
If during registration a Participant provides information indicating that they are not eligible (or fail to provide any required information), they will be shown a screen which will inform them they are not eligible to participate in the Game using the App (because they are not a T-Mobile customer or they are not an eligible T-Mobile customer). If such a potential Participant satisfies the eligibility requirements for the Game, he or she may participate using the AMOE Page as described in subsection (B), below.
(ii) Via the T-Mobile Tuesdays Game Site
The Game Site will be accessible at www.T-MobileTuesdays.com via a computer or web-enabled mobile device. New Participants may go to the Game Site and, if accessing on the "Promotion Day," may be prompted with an optional new user video and tutorial screens before arriving to the home screen. From the home screen, the Participant may click "PLAY NOW" which will take the user to a separate T-Mobile website ("Sign-in Site"). The Sign-in Site will ask Participants to either "Log in with T-Mobile ID" using their T-Mobile phone number and password or to "Sign up for a T-Mobile ID" and follow steps for T-Mobile ID registration. Once Participants have successfully logged in or registered from the Sign-in Site, they will be taken back to the Game Site to accept current Terms and Conditions if they have not done so already.
After accepting the Terms and Conditions, Participants will be brought back to the home screen and should click "PLAY NOW" to accept the Official Rules and to play the Game animation. Winning the Game is determined based on the time at which you clicked "PLAY NOW" and not on the outcome of the Game animation. The Game animation is purely for entertainment purposes. You will be shown a screen that indicates if you are a winner. If you are a winner, follow the instructions to redeem your prize.
If during registration a Participant provides information indicating that they are not eligible (or fail to provide any required information), they will be shown a screen which will inform them that they are not eligible to participate in the Game using the Game Site (because they are not a T-Mobile customer or they are not an eligible T-Mobile customer). If such a potential Participant satisfies the eligibility requirements for the Game, he or she may participate using the AMOE Page as described in subsection (B), below.
B. Non-T-Mobile Customer Play. During the Promotion Day, anyone who is eligible (see Eligibility section, above) can visit amoe.t-mobiletuesdays.com ("AMOE Page") and follow the instructions to register and receive one (1) Game play.

You will be shown a screen that indicates if you are a winner. If you are a winner, you will receive an email at the address provided during registration with instructions to follow to redeem your prize. Neither Sponsor nor any other Released Party or wireless carrier will be responsible for incomplete, lost, late, illegible or misdirected participation.
There is a limit of one (1) Game play per person/valid email/mobile number. Any attempted participation outside of the Promotion Day, or attempts to participate in excess of the limits stated herein (including, without limitation, by providing multiple sets of or false contact information or registering for multiple user accounts) are void and Participant may be disqualified in Sponsor's sole discretion. Sponsor's clock for the App, the Game Site and AMOE Page shall be the official timekeeper of the Game. Those who do not abide by these Official Rules or the instructions of Sponsor or its representatives and provide all required information may, in Sponsor's sole discretion, be disqualified and any participation by such person void.
All Participants are required to comply with the FTC Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising at 16 CFR 255 (available at http://www.ftc.gov/sites/default/files/attachments/press-releases/ftc-publishes-final-guides-governing-endorsements-testimonials/091005revisedendorsementguides.pdf ). These obligations include disclosing in any social media post or communication, or any other communication, that they make about the Game, Sponsor or the event, that they are a Participant in the Game if the post or communication is incentivized by Sponsor (e.g., if Sponsor gives you a Game play or extra chance to play the Game in exchange for you posting a comment about Sponsor or the Game).
Sponsor may prohibit a Participant from participating in the Game and/or winning prizes if, in its sole discretion, it determines that said Participant is attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the Game by participating via more than one method (App, the Game Site and/or the AMOE Page), by cheating, hacking, deception or other unfair practices (including the use of automated quick entry programs) or intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other Participants or Sponsor or its agents, or if Participant has or has attempted to submit malicious code, .exe files or any file that contains malicious code.
4. PRIZE CLAIM PROCESS AND VERIFICATION OF THE POTENTIAL WINNERS: Upon winning a prize in the Game, a potential winner will receive a message that includes instructions to claim and receive the prize. Potential winner must follow all on-screen links and instructions to complete the prize claim and verification processes or the prize will be forfeited. The initial prize-claim process must be completed by the date specified below for the applicable prize. Following completion of this initial prize-claim process, potential winners may then (in Sponsor's sole discretion) be required to complete, have notarized and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Publicity/Liability Release, where legal, a guest release (when the prize includes a guest(s)) and, as applicable, an IRS Form W-9 and any other documents that the Sponsor may request (collectively the "Prize Claim Documents") by the deadline specified below for the applicable prize.

Any failure to comply with these Official Rules or failure to properly claim a prize or to complete and return required Prize Claim Documents by the deadline set by Sponsor will result in disqualification and that prize will go unawarded. If Sponsor so elects, a potential prize winner may be required to submit to, and cooperate in, a confidential background check to confirm eligibility, security requirements set by Sponsor or a Prize Partner and to help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity for the Game will not bring Sponsor or a Prize Partner into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule, or reflect unfavorably on the Game or the Sponsor or on a Prize Partner, all as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
If a winner is eligible to participate in the Game, but is under the age of majority in his/her legal jurisdiction of residence (a "Minor"), the prize may be awarded to or in the name of winner's parent/legal guardian, who must execute all documents and agree to all obligations and undertakings of a winner, both on behalf of himself/herself and the Minor Participant, or the prize may be forfeited in its entirety.

Each winner will be solely responsible for all applicable federal, state and local taxes associated with the acceptance, receipt and use of the prize. Prize(s) consists only of items/amounts specifically listed. Any and all costs, fees or expenses related to participating in the Game and claiming or using a prize, unless otherwise specifically set forth herein as part of the prize, are the sole responsibility of the applicable winner. Certain conditions, restrictions and blackout dates may apply. Prizes are nontransferable and no substitution or cash equivalent is allowed, except in Sponsor's sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize(s) of equal or greater approximate retail value for any reason. Each winner may be issued a 1099 tax form for the actual value of his/her prize. If a winner does not accept or use the entire prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the prize will be forfeited and the Released Parties will have no further obligation with respect to that prize or portion of the prize. The Released Parties will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen prizes or prize elements or any prize elements that are undeliverable or do not reach the winner because of an incorrect or changed address or other contact information. Prizes will be mailed (where applicable) only to the verified winner's address within the Territory unless Sponsor, in its sole discretion, agrees otherwise. If Sponsor determines at any time in its sole discretion that a winner or potential winner is ineligible or in violation of these Official Rules, Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify that person, even if he or she has been notified or announced as a winner.
Additional Terms Applicable to Grand Prize: Any and all costs, fees not expressly stated in the prize description are the sole responsibility of the prize winner. Any difference between the approximate retail value and the actual value will not be awarded and any difference will not be refunded. Sponsor does not represent that any money provided as part of a prize to help towards taxes will be sufficient to cover any winner's potential tax liability associated with winning a prize. No insurance is provided as part of the prize, and obtaining any insurance, such as but not limited to travel insurance, health, accident or medical insurance, and property loss or damage insurance is the sole responsibility of the winner and/or winner's guest(s) (if any). Travel and other arrangements will be determined by Sponsor or Prize Partner (where applicable). If winner is a Minor, winner's guest must be winner's parent/legal guardian; and if winner's guest is a Minor, guest must be winner's child or legal ward. Air travel will be round trip (originate from and end at the same airport), coach class from and to an airport selected by Sponsor. All rooms are subject to prior sale, so advanced reservations are required. All reservations must be made and tickets issued prior to travel. Tickets and certificates are non-refundable and non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash. Changes to reservations are not permitted. Prize winner and guest(s) must travel together on the same itinerary and are solely responsible for having any required travel-related documents (including valid government-issued photo ID and/or any required passport or visa) prior to departure as well as fulfilling any/all travel and security requirements (including but not limited to any shots or other health requirements necessary to visit certain destinations). Sponsor or Prize Partner(s) reserve the right in their respective sole discretion to designate all flight/travel particulars and route or routes (as the case may be). Failure to complete the trip portion of the prize (or any portion of the prize) does not relieve the prize winner of their tax obligations associated with winning the trip prize. Flight schedules are subject to change without notice. In the event a winner lives within one hundred (100) miles of the destination for their prize, air travel will not be included in the trip prize and any such winner will be compensated a total of eight hundred dollars ($800) in lieu of air travel, for any alternate travel expenses. No Released Party will be liable for any missed opportunities or expenses incurred as a consequence of flight cancellation/delay or ground transportation delay. If a winner (and/or the winner's guest(s)) is not able to participate in any portion of a travel prize, that unused portion will not be substituted for cash or any other prize. Prize winners may be required to provide a current valid major credit card at time of hotel check-in to cover incidentals, and any and all costs, fees and expenses not expressly stated in the prize description. Restrictions and/or blackout dates may apply to some trip prizes. Once a guest is determined, that guest cannot be changed without the express consent of Sponsor, which may be withheld for any reason. Each winner (and each guest) agrees to maintain their behavior in accordance with all applicable laws and generally accepted social practices in connection with participation in any prize-related activity. Prize winners understand and agree that Sponsor or the applicable Prize Partner has the right, in their sole discretion, to disqualify and remove a prize winner and/or any guest from any activity at any time if that winner or guest's behavior at any point is uncooperative, disruptive or may or does cause damage to person, property or the reputation of Sponsor or the Prize Partner, or otherwise violates the policies of the Sponsor or Prize Partner. The prize winner is solely responsible for the behavior of winner's guests. If any activity relating to any prize is cancelled or postponed for any reason, the balance of that prize will be awarded in full satisfaction of the prize awarded.
