These Official Rules contain the terms and conditions that apply to the eligibility to enter, participate and be awarded a prize in the Harneyville Holiday Promotion (“Promotion”) which is sponsored by Harney & Sons Fine Teas (the “Sponsor,” “we,” “us” or “our”). Please read these Official Rules carefully, because by entering, participating or accepting a prize, you are agreeing to be unconditionally legally bound by all of the terms and conditions contained in these Official Rules. If you violate or fail to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules, we have the right to disqualify you, and you will forfeit the right to receive any prize. In all matters relating to this Promotion, the Sponsor has the sole right to exercise complete discretion and judgment, including, without limitation, the administration, operation and conduct of the Promotion.

Promotion Period

The Promotion starts on November 8 and ends at 11:59:59 P.M. Eastern Standard Time on December 19, 2020 (“Promotion Period”).  

Who Is Eligible?

To be a qualified entrant, eligible to enter, participate and awarded a prize (“Entrant”), you must be an account holder of Harney & Sons,at least 18 years old and a legal resident in the 50 United States of America during the entire Promotion Period.  No employee, director, officer, owner of the Sponsor, nor any of their subsidiaries, affiliates, contractors, agents or members of their immediate families or individuals living in the same household (individually and/or collectively, the “Sponsor Entities”) are eligible. Even if you have multiple accounts with us or multiple emails associated with your account, you may only enter once, and the Entrant will be deemed to be the natural person associated with the Harney & Sons account and email registered with us in your profile.  

How Do You Enter?

There are two components to this Promotion:Instant Prizes and theEterni-TEA Sweepstakes and, correspondingly, there are instant prizes you can win and separate prizes that can be awarded in the Sweepstakes.  To win an Instant Prize and be entered into the Sweepstakes, first create a Harney & Sons account (your “account”) or sign in to your Harney & Sons account each week during the Promotion Period and visit the Promotion web page (https://harney.com/pages/harneyville). 

Instant Prizes:  When you visit the Promotion web page, you will have the ability to participate in a new challenge twice-weekly (see the listing of challenges below). Challenges may require a purchase or ask you to engage in some activity, but you will also have the ability to enter for free, without making a purchase or engaging in an activity, and the instructions for how you can do so are on our Promotion web page (https://www.harney.com/pages/harneyville-alternate).  

Whichever you choose, whether you complete a challenge or decide to enter without doing so, you will receive a Game Play.  Each Game Play is essentially a virtual activator that will allow you to win an Instant Prize. At any point during the Promotion Period, go back to the Promotion web page where you will be able to see how many Game Plays you have earned and how many you have available that you haven’t used yet.  If you haven’t received a Game Play for any particular week that has passed, don’t worry. You can always get one by completing the challenge or use the free entry method for each week you missed, but you have to wait for each week before being able to receive the next Game Play, but once the Promotion Period ends, you won’t be able to earn or receive any more Game Plays and you won’t be able to use them to get an Instant Prize.  To use your Game Plays, click on the “Pour the Tea” button (link) on our Promotion web page to reveal your Instant Prize which is selected at random by our system.  Once your Instant Prize is revealed, we will send an email to the email account you registered with us in your Harney & Sons account, which will provide the details on how you can redeem each Instant Prize you are awarded.

Remember, you can receive one Game Play twice a week that allows you to obtain an Instant Prize for each of the 6 weeks during the Promotion Period, and when your Instant Prize is revealed, you will also automatically receive one entry into the Sweepstakes portion of our Promotion, as well as a Village Badge for your account. If you are using the free entry method, you will also be able to receive one entry (and a Village Badge) for each Game Play you receive each week during the Promotion by following the free entry instructions we send you.  In all cases, each Entrant will only be allowed to have a total of 12 entries in the Sweepstakes.

Only one Challenge can be completed and subsequently, one Game Play earned, per purchase on Harney.com. While a purchase may satisfy the requirements of more than one Challenge, that purchase will only earn you one Game Play and the Village Badge associated with the most current Challenge. To complete all purchase-oriented Challenges, you must either complete each Challenge requirement in a separate transaction or complete each Alternate Entry Method. 

It is important to keep in mind that ONLY Entrants who receive all 12 Game Plays and obtain ALL 12 Village Badges during the Promotion Period will be eligible and entitled to be awarded the Grand Prize ofTea for Eterni-TEA described below. The odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on how many Entrants qualify and have received all 12 Village Badges.
