  4. HOW TO PLAY.
  5. General. Brackets will consist of Thirty-two (32) participating products, which will compete in head-to-head matchups in an elimination-style tournament. The winner of each matchup will be determined by whichever of the two products has more unit sales across all Fetch Rewards users purchases from receipts completed within the Fetch Rewards app during that rounds timeframe. For example, if Brand A is in a matchup with Brand B, and Brand A has 999 units purchased across all Fetch Rewards users receipts during that round’s time frame, and Brand B has 900 units purchased, Brand A would advance to the next round and Brand B would be eliminated. Brands will continue to advance through to the next round of the tournament until one winning product remains.

Entrants must submit their prediction of which products will advance each round of the tournament prior to Lock Time. All entrants will start with a score of 0 and will earn points for every correct prediction.

Selections submitted after the deadline are considered invalid. Sponsor's computer is the official time-keeping device for this Promotion.
  2. Ties. Entrant will submit a tiebreaker number upon entry, based upon how many Fetch Points they believe will be given out to users of the Fetch Rewards app during the tournament period (June 12-25, 2019). The differences (absolute values only) between the predicted number of Fetch Rewards points and the actual number of Fetch Rewards points is calculated for each tied user. The entry with the smallest difference is considered the winning entry.

Fetch Rewards points are calculated based upon all Fetch Points awarded to all users on the application from 12:00 AM, June 12, through 11:59 PM June 25, 2019, UTC.

This prediction is used for tiebreaker purposes only. If no predicted score is submitted for an entry, it is given a default prediction of zero (0) points.

If a tie still exists after the tie breaker has been implemented, additional rounds of tiebreakers will be implemented until a single winner is identified. The additional tiebreakers are as follows:

  • Tiebreaker #2 – Entrant score in the Championship Round.
  • Tiebreaker #3 – Entrant score in Round of 4.
  • Tiebreaker #4 - Entrant score in Round of 8.
  • Tiebreaker #5 - Entrant score in Round 16.
  • Tiebreaker #6 - Entrant score in Round 32.

If multiples entrants are still tied after all tiebreakers have been applied, then one entrant will be randomly selected to win.

In all cases, an entry that does not win a tiebreaker is eliminated from consideration.

  1. Limit. One (1) entry per person.
  2. NO ENTRY FEE. There is no entry fee required to participate in the Promotion. Only entries received in app in accordance with these Official Rules will be accepted. No other forms of entry - fax, mail, email, phone or other - will be accepted. Entry materials/data that have been tampered with or altered are void.

The first runner-up will receive 100,000 Fetch points and the second runner-up will receive 50,000 Fetch points in their Fetch Rewards account. If there are still ties after the Tiebreaker has been applied, the winner will be randomly selected from among the tied entrants.

If an eligible, perfect bracket is submitted, one (1) entrant with a perfect bracket will be awarded 1,000,000 Fetch points. If there are multiple eligible perfect brackets submitted, the Tiebreaker will be applied to determine the winner. If multiple entrants are still tied after the Tiebreaker has been applied, one winner will be randomly selected from the remaining perfect brackets.

Odds of winning prizes depend on the total number of eligible entries received. Fetch Rewards points are NOT redeemable/exchangeable for cash. Other restrictions may apply. No cash or other prize substitution, assignment or transfer of prizes permitted, except at Sponsor's sole discretion.
