Only the Referring Chime Member will receive an Entry using this method. Each Entrant is limited to five (5) Entries (automatic or Mail-in).

2. For an Alternate Method of Entry (“AMOE”) without meeting the requirements described above in 1., Entrant should send a post card (“Mail-in Entry”) to Chime at P.O. Box 417, San Francisco, CA 94108 and include: (1) first and last names; (2) date of birth; (3) home address, city, state, and ZIP Code; (4) an email address to verify the potential winner; and (5) name of the Sweepstakes “SUMMER FUNDS SWEEPSTAKES.” Each Mail-in Entry, which must be postmarked during the Sweepstakes Period and received by the Sponsor before potential winners are chosen on September 3, 2019, will constitute one (1) Entry into Sweepstakes.

Each Entrant is limited to five (5) Entries (automatic or Mail-in).

By submitting either an automatic or Mail-in Entry, each Entrant agrees his or her Entry complies with these Official Rules.

Each Entrant also agrees that Sponsor may disqualify the Entrant from the Sweepstakes if Sponsor believes, in its sole and absolute discretion, that an Entry fails to comply with these Official Rules. If Sponsor rejects any Entry, such Entry will be disqualified and will not be considered a valid Entry. Entries may only be made according to one of the methods described above. Only eligible Mail-in Entries postmarked during the Sweepstakes Period and received by the Sponsor before potential winners are chosen on September 3, 2019 will be included in the prize drawing(s). All Entrants are limited to five (5) total Entries.

Each potential winner must meet the eligibility requirements set forth in these Official Rules in order to qualify for a prize. Limit one (1) prize per Entrant, regardless of method of entry.

If any potential winner is found to be ineligible; is not in compliance with these Official Rules; does not comply with Sponsor’s instructions; or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the prize may be deemed forfeited in Sponsor’s sole discretion. If a prize is deemed forfeited, then the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible automatic and Mail-in Entries received, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the prize for any reason. Each prize will only be awarded to a verified winner.
