How often can I enter?

Every online order – regardless of order amount - qualifies as an eligible entry as long as it is placed between August 5, 2013 and August 31, 2013. There is no limit on the number of orders that can be placed per day. Entries without making a purchase are limited to one per day.

Where can I find the Official Rules of the giveaway?

You'll find the Official Rules and complete details at Official Rules.

Who can enter?

The giveaway is open only to legal U.S. residents who are 13 years of age and older at the time of entry.

Can more than one person in my household enter?

Yes. Every order regardless of who orders is eligible for a chance to win. For no purchase entries, each person in the household is permitted to enter one time per day as long as the email address is different for each individual. If you enter the giveaway more than once per day, duplicate entries will be removed at the end of the giveaway.

Can I place an order and enter without making a purchase?

Yes. You may only enter for a chance to win either by placing an order or using the alternate method of entry each day. Multiple orders placed in a single day will qualify as individual entries. For example, if you place two separate orders in a single day, you will receive two entries. You will not receive two entries if you place an order and also use the alternate method of entry in the same day.

Where will the seats be located?

The actual seat location will depend on availability in January, 2014.

When and how will the winners be selected?

The winners will be chosen in a random drawing to be held on or about September 9, 2013.

How will I know if I've won?

The winner will be contacted by email after the random drawing.

What are my chances of winning?

Your chances of winning are based on the number of people who enter.

By entering the sweepstakes will I automatically win something?

No, when you enter, you are entering for a chance to win a prize.

Will the tickets be awarded at the time the winner is selected?

No, the tickets will not be sent to the winner until January, 2014. This allows us to secure the best possible seats based on availability.

If I win and accept the prize package, will I be responsible for paying all applicable taxes on the prize package?

Yes. If the prize value is more than $600, Papa John’s is required by law to report the prize (awarded to a U.S. resident) to the IRS. In which case we will request your social security number and send you an affidavit to fill out. If the prize value is less than $600 we are not required to report the prize and so may or may not choose to report it. In either case it is your responsibility to include your accumulated winnings in your taxable income.
