2. ELIGIBILITY: This Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia (excluding Puerto Rico and all United States territories and possessions) and who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. You need not be present to win. Employees (and their immediate families or those living in the same household) of Sponsor and its affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, parent and related companies, suppliers, printers and advertising, promotional and judging agencies are not eligible to enter or win. Individuals who appear on the U.S. Government Department of Treasury’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List are also not eligible to enter or win. An “Entrant” is an eligible person who (i) submits an entry in accordance with these Official Rules and (ii) is a Primary Accountholder (if entering the Sweepstakes by the Back to School Savings Goal Entry Method) or is an eligible person pursuant to this Section 2 (if entering the Sweepstakes by the Mail-In Entry Method).

3. SWEEPSTAKES PERIOD: The Sweepstakes begins 12:01 a.m., E.T. on September 1, 2020, and ends on 11:59 p.m., E.T. September 30, 2020 (the “Sweepstakes Period”).

4. HOW TO ENTER: You may enter this Sweepstakes only via the entry methods described below. All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m., E.T., on the last day of the Sweepstakes Period (September 30, 2020), regardless of the method of entry. Proof of depositing entry in mail is not considered proof of delivery or receipt. No photocopied or mechanically reproduced entries will be accepted. Illegible, incomplete and duplicate entries will be disqualified. Entries will not be accepted from post office boxes. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. No responsibility is assumed by the Sponsor for any inability of a potential entrant to successfully enter the Sweepstakes for any reason.

a. BACK TO SCHOOL SAVINGS GOAL ENTRY METHOD: During the Sweepstakes Period, the transfer by a Primary Accountholder or an affiliated Cardholder (as defined below) of at least one dollar ($1) to a newly created or an existing “Savings Goal” (each, a “Savings Goal Increase”) within the Greenlight mobile application will automatically enter the Primary Accountholder (not the affiliated Cardholder) into the Sweepstakes and will constitute one entry for the Primary Accountholder.  As used herein, the “Primary Accountholder” is the individual, at least 18 years of age, who opens and is responsible for the primary Greenlight account (the “Primary Account”).  The Primary Accountholder has the ability to request the issuance of up to five Greenlight Prepaid Mastercard cards [1](“Greenlight Cards”) for the Primary Accountholder’s children or dependents, each of which will be considered a sub-account of the Primary Account, and each child or dependent will be considered an authorized user of the Primary Account (each, a “Cardholder”).  This structure of the Greenlight program allows the Primary Accountholder to identify, monitor and approve Greenlight Card transactions by each individual Cardholder. 

To open a Greenlight account and receive a Greenlight Card, please visit https://www.greenlight.com/ and complete the enrollment process. Any Back to School Savings Goal entry will be presumed to have been made by the Primary Accountholder with whom the Greenlight Card is associated – a decision that the Sponsor will make in its sole discretion – and no other individual (including Cardholders) will have any right or claim to that Back to School Savings Goal entry.

Each Cardholder associated with a Primary Accountholder may contribute only one entry to the Sweepstakes during the Sweepstakes Period regardless of the number of Savings Goal Increases which occur during such period.  However, each Primary Accountholder can only submit up to a maximum of five (5) entries via this Back To School Savings Goal Entry Method during the Sweepstakes Period because each Primary Account can only have up to a maximum of five (5) Cardholders associated with the Primary Account. All Back to School Savings Goal entries must be made during the Sweepstakes Period in order to be eligible for this Sweepstakes.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Primary Accountholder shall be the Entrant (as defined herein) and any associated Cardholder who may have completed a Savings Goal Increase (i) shall not be considered an Entrant for purposes of this Sweepstakes and (ii) shall have no right to receive the Prize (defined below) or to be a part of the random drawing.

b. MAIL-IN ENTRY METHOD: Alternatively, you may enter the Sweepstakes up to a maximum of five (5) times (combined with the Back to School Savings Goal Entry Method) by hand-printing the words Greenlight "Back to School Savings Goal" Sweepstakes, your name, age, address, city, state, zip code, telephone number, and e-mail address (if any) on a 3” x 5” card or blank piece of paper and mailing it in an envelope to: "Back to School Savings Goal" Sweepstakes, c/o Greenlight Financial Technology, Inc., 303 Peachtree Street, NE, Suite 4300, Atlanta, GA 30308.

If it is discovered that an Entrant has registered or attempted to register more than five (5) times  using multiple physical addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, multiple identities, IP addresses, use of proxy servers, or any other method of unauthorized entry, all in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, all of that Entrant’s entries will be declared null and void, Entrant will be disqualified from the Sweepstakes and any Prize that Entrant might have been entitled to receive will not be awarded to him/her. Entries that are late, lost, illegible, duplicated, mechanically reproduced, contain false information, damaged, misdirected, mutilated, garbled or incomplete, altered or otherwise irregular, in the sole discretion of Sponsor; or that have been submitted or generated using robotic, programmed, script, or any other automated means, or illicit means; or that do not conform with or satisfy any or all of the conditions set out in the Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion, may be judged void and disqualified.

Messaging and/or data rates may apply.

Regardless of entry method, each Entrant may enter the Sweepstakes up to a maximum of five (5) times.

5. PRIZE AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE: There will be one (1) prize (the “Prize”) awarded to the winning Entrant selected by random drawing as described in Section 6 below (the “Winner”).

The Prize will be awarded by the Sponsor to the Winner by crediting the Primary Account associated with the Winner for the amount of the Prize.
