1. PROMOTION PERIOD: The Western Union® “Season of Giving” Sweepstakes (the “Promotion” or “Sweepstakes”) sponsored by Western Union Financial Services, Inc. (the “Sponsor”) consists of a series of seven (7) separate and distinct daily entry periods, each corresponding to a prize drawing. Each daily entry period begins at 12:00:00 am EST (start of day) and ends at 11:59:59 pm EST, as defined in the chart below (each a “Daily Period”). Non-winning entries for a Daily Period will NOT roll over to the subsequent Daily Period. The Sponsor’s computer, or that of its designee, runs the official clock for the Sweepstakes and will solely determine the time by which an entry is received.

3. HOW TO ENTER: There are two ways to enter the Sweepstakes:

A. Automatic entry via a Western Union Money Transfer® transaction: Make a qualifying Western Union Money Transfer® transaction paid for at or via the WU App during a Daily Period (a “Qualifying Transaction”) and you will automatically receive one (1) entry into the respective Daily Period’s drawing, as outlined in the chart above. Western Union Money Transfer transactions initiated on the WU App and paid at an agent location, and bill payments, will not be deemed a Qualifying Transaction.


B. E-mail entry: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. If you wish to enter the Sweepstakes without making a Qualifying Transaction (as noted above), during a Daily Period send an email to: with the subject line Western Union Season of Giving Sweepstakes Entry Request. Within the body of your email please include your complete name, address, telephone number and email address. Your email entry must comply with the above instructions and be received within a Daily Period, as indicated in the chart above, in order to be included in the applicable Daily Period’s drawing. Proof of e-mailing does not constitute proof of delivery.


CONDITIONS OF ENTRY:  There is a limit of one (1) entry per person/per Daily Period, regardless of method of entry. ENTRIES INCLUDED IN ONE DAILY PERIOD WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR SUBSEQUENT DAILY PERIOD DRAWINGS. There is a limit of one (1) prize per person per Daily Period.  A transaction-based entry will not increase your chances of winning.


4. RANDOM DRAWINGS:  A random drawing will be conducted to award prizes from among all eligible Automatic and Email entries received for each Daily Period (per the chart above).  Drawings will be conducted within 14 days of a Daily Period’s entry deadline. All drawings will be conducted by Marden-Kane, Inc., the Sweepstakes Administrator whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.  Potential winners are subject to eligibility verification and compliance with these Official Rules. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Automatic Entries and Email Entries received for each Daily Period.


5. WINNER NOTIFICATION:  Potential winners will be contacted by the Administrator via email or phone on or about the corresponding Drawing Date and will be required to verify his/her eligibility by signing and returning a completed Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release and where permissible, a Publicity Release (collectively the “Documents”). The Documents must be returned to the Administrator by the date stated in the notification email or the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate potential Prize winner, time permitting. If a potential Prize winner (i) cannot be contacted after a reasonable attempt has been made by the Administrator (as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion); or (ii) fails to timely return the completed Documents within the time specified within the notification email; or (iii) refuses the prize; or (iv) the prize or prize notification is rejected or returned as undeliverable, then such potential Prize winner will be disqualified and forfeits all rights to be deemed the winner and at Sponsor’s discretion an alternate potential prize winner will be notified, time permitting. Upon prize forfeiture, no compensation will be given. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held for each Daily Period, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.
