4. How to Register, Play the Game and Earning Game Tokens


During the Sweepstakes Period go to www.holidaymatchandwin.com (the “Site”) where you will be required to register by providing your name, email address, state, zip code, password and accept the Official Rules. Registration is free. All information provided must be complete and true.

Playing the Game and Earning Game Tokens
Once you have completed registration you will automatically receive five (5) game tokens. Game tokens are used to play a game called “Match & Win”. From the Home Page, to play a round (a “Round”) of the Match & Win game (the “Game”), simply click the “Play Now” button, which will require you to use one (1) Play. At the beginning each Round: (i) you will be randomly assigned four (4) recipes (each a “Recipe”), as determined by the Sponsor at its sole discretion, whereby each Recipe will be composed of a pre-determined number of ingredients boxes (each an “Ingredient Box”) and each Recipe will be automatically assigned a pre-determined number of entries (each an “Entry”) into the Grand Prize Draw (defined below); and (ii) you will be randomly assigned six (6) ingredients (each an “Ingredient”) that will populate the corresponding Ingredient Boxes in the applicable Recipe(s). During each Round, after you have first been assigned six (6) Ingredients, you will have the option of selecting to re-draw the Ingredients you have been randomly assigned up to three (3) times (each a “Redraw”). However, during any given Redraw, only the Ingredients you have chosen to remain as “unlocked” will be redrawn, as any Ingredient that you have selected to “keep” will not change. You are not required to execute all three (3) Redraws, as you can select to end the applicable Round at any time by selecting “Collect Unlocked Recipes”. However, if you choose to execute all three (3) Redraws in any applicable Round, the Round will automatically end after the third Redraw. The purpose of the Game is to unlock as many Recipes as possible before the end of the applicable Round. You may only unlock a Recipe (each an “Unlocked Recipe”) by populating all of the Ingredient Boxes that compose the Recipe with the corresponding Ingredients that you have been assigned at the end of the applicable Round (i.e. Ingredients that are not currently assigned to you at the end of the applicable Round cannot be used to populate corresponding Ingredient Boxes). At the end of a Round, you will obtain all of the Entries that correspond to the Unlocked Recipes (as applicable), as determined by the Sponsor at its sole discretion. The number of times you play the game is limited by the number of game tokens you have earned. Each game token can only be used one (1) time.

Game tokens can be earned by completing the following platform activities:

  • Opt-in to Harris Teeter emails and receive 10 game tokens. Limit of 10 game tokens for this activity.
