HOW TO ENTER: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. You can enter the Promotion through the “Who Deserves Excedrin® The Most?” Promotion application on the Facebook Platform. You can find the application by clicking the Promotion-tile link on the Excedrin® Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Excedrin (the “Website”). To enter, you will first have to “Like” the Excedrin® fan page on Facebook. You will need to provide the Promotion application with permission to access the basic information in your Facebook account (such as name, user ID) as well as your Facebook “Likes”. Then, register by providing your complete and accurate contact information (first name, last name, ZIP Code, date of birth, email address, and phone number), and accepting these Official Rules.
Limit of one (1) registration per person/email address/Facebook account throughout the Promotion Period. If you register, or attempt to register, more than ONCE using multiple email addresses or identities or any other device or artifice to register multiple times or as multiple registrants, all of your entries may be declared null and void, and any prize you might have been entitled to will not be awarded. Robotic, programmed or any other automated means of online entry are prohibited and may result in disqualification of all such entries from the Promotion.
When you return to the Website, you will not need to re-register, but you will need to log-in. Each week, you will be presented with one or more pairs of personas (a “Bracket”); you will be asked to determine, by your vote, “Who Deserves Excedrin® The Most?”. For each vote you submit in accordance with these Official Rules, you will receive one (1) Instant Win game play (See Rule #4), and one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes draw (See Rule #5). See the table below for dates and limitations on voting. For the purposes of this Promotion, a day (“Day”) runs from 12:00:00 AM CDT to 11:59:59 PM CDT, except for the first Day of the Promotion which begins at 12:00:00 PM CDT. The outcome of the voting for each Bracket will not affect your chances of winning. All entries must be received by May 14, 2013 at 11:59:59 PM CDT.
INSTANT WIN GAME: Instant Win prizes are randomly time seeded throughout each day of the Instant Win Game Periods and awarded to the person who plays on or after the time the prize is randomly seeded. There are five (5) prizes available per day in Instant Win Game Periods 1 to 4, and three (3) prizes available per day in Instant Win Game Period 5 (see Rule #6 for details on the prizes available for each of the Instant Win Game Periods). Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Instant Win Game plays earned and the order in which such Game plays are received during the applicable day of the applicable Instant Win Game Period. An onscreen message will tell you the results of your game play; in addition, if you are potential winner, a “Play Receipt” including a unique Security Identification Code (SIC) will be automatically sent to the email address you provided in the registration process. The Play Receipt and SIC will confirm the results of your game play.

The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received. The Potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize Winner will be eligible to win the Sweepstakes Grand Prize (see Rule #6(a) below for prize details), subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Promotion Judges’ decisions are final in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes draw.
