OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES
ENTRANTS MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD TO BE ELIGIBLE TO ENTER OR WIN. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.
INTRODUCTION. This Throwback Threads Giveaway (the "Weekly Contest") gives one (1) contest Entrant during each week of the Promotion Period (as defined below) the opportunity to win a $250 credit (the "Jackthreads Weekly Winner Credit") which may be applied by him or her to purchases on Jackthreads (a "Weekly Winner"). For avoidance of doubt, "each week of the Promotion Period" refers to each successive seven day period from Thursday through Wednesday during the Promotion Period. Weekly Winners will be chosen each week by a panel of judges designated by Sponsor (as defined below) using the judging criteria set forth below.
In addition, shortly following the last day of the Promotion Period a winner will be selected as the "Grand Prize Winner"; (collectively with the Weekly Winners, the "Contest Winners") and provided a $1,000.00 credit which may be applied by him or her to purchases on Jackthreads (the "Grand Prize Contest"; and, collectively with the Weekly Contest, the "Contest"). The Grand Prize Winner will be chosen by a panel of judges designated by Sponsor using the same judging criteria used to select the Weekly Winners.
The details of the prizes and how to enter the Contest are contained in these Official Rules.
TO ENTER. You can enter the Weekly Contest online each week via Twitter or Instagram. During any or all weeks of the Promotion Period, Entrant must tweet the following custom hashtag to enter the Contest for that week: "#throwbackthreads."
