3. How to Enter:

  • A. To participate in the Sweepstakes you must have a Macy’s wedding gift registry with a valid registry identification number (a “Registry”) with an aggregate value of no less than five hundred dollars ($500.00) considering the original price of the items listed in the registry (a “Qualified Registry”). If you do not have a Registry, you may visit a Macy’s store or to create one. Then, during the Sweepstakes Period, visit (“Website”) and follow all on-screen instructions to fill out and submit the entry form, including providing the Registry identification number assigned to your Registry. Entrant must complete all steps as set forth in this section and provide all required information to receive an eligible Sweepstakes entry. One (1) entry per Qualified Registry is permitted. Entrants must have their Qualified Registry account set as public in order to be viewable by Sponsor and therefore considered as a Qualified Entry.
  • B. Mail-in Alternate Method of Entry: To enter without creating a Qualified Registry, hand print your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address, and date of birth on a 3" x 5" piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to Macy’s “Win Your Dream Registry” Sweepstakes, c/o Macy’s Wedding Registry, 112 W 34th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10120. You will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. All requests must be postmarked no later than June 30, 2018 and received within five days in order to be included in the Sweepstakes. All requests must be hand printed, separately mailed and become the exclusive property of the Sponsor. None will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. The Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage-due requests, all of which will not be honored. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries.
  • C. Limit:You may only enter the Sweepstakes once, whether by opening a Qualified Registry or using the alternate method of entry. Subsequent attempts made by the same individual to submit multiple entries by using multiple or false contact information or otherwise will be disqualified. Entries generated by a script, computer program, macro, robotic or other automated means are void and will be disqualified.

4. Determination and Verification of Potential Winners: Entries that are incomplete, false, late or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules will be disqualified. The “authorized account holder” of an email address, is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Potential winner is subject to verification before Prize is awarded. Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Receiving the Prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable Prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining entries. POTENTIAL WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. An entrant is not a winner of a prize, unless and until entrant is selected in the random drawing, entrant’s eligibility has been verified, and entrant has been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Entries made by any individual or any entity other than the named entrant and/or originating at any other Internet Website, including (but not limited to) commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites are void. All materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

5. Selection of Winner. Five (5) winners will be selected in a random drawing on or about July 20, 2018. Odds are determined by the number of entries received. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, or Prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits the Prize. The Prize consists of only those items specifically described as included in the Prize.

6. Prize Description: Five (5) Sweepstakes winners will each receive a Grand-Prize consisting of the registered items listed on their individual Macy’s Qualified Registry totaling up to five thousand dollars ($5,000.00).

Prize Aggregate Retail Value: up to $25,000.

ONLY ELEMENTS OF THE PRIZE DESCRIBED ABOVE ARE BEING AWARDED TO WINNER. No substitution of prize is offered, no transfer of prize to a third party is permitted. In the event that the Prize is unavailable, Sponsor may award a prize of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Sponsor will only purchase item(s) that are listed and not yet purchased from the winner’s Qualified Registry, up to the amount of $5,000.00, and on the purchase date(s) of August 10, 2018 and/or August 11, 2018 (“Purchase Date”). Any discounted rates applicable prior to or after the Purchase Date will not be honored. For purposes of awarding the Prize, price(s) of merchandise listed in the Qualified Registry shall be determined based on the current listed retail prices as of the Purchase Date, including any applicable sale and/or clearance reduction of prices. Winner will not be able to apply any coupons or further discounts aside from the price reductions determined by Sponsor (including sales and clearances) applicable in-store and/or online. Prize is not exchangeable and may not be used to pay account balance. Any portion of the Prize not accepted or unclaimed by the winner will be forfeited and will not be substituted and no additional compensation will be provided. Sponsor or their designee shall fulfill the Prize to Winner. Winner is solely responsible for all incidental expenses, including income and other taxes, and all other costs and expenses not otherwise mentioned herein.

7. Notification: Potential winners will be notified by e-mail and/or telephone. Potential winners must respond to accept or decline the Prize within seven (7) days of notification. If a potential winner cannot be contacted within seven (7) days of Sponsor’s notification, does not timely respond to Sponsor within seven (7) days of Sponsor’s notification, or if Prize or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable, an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected by Sponsor. Upon Prize forfeiture, no payment or other compensation will be made to the original potential winner. If a potential winner accepts the Prize, they must sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, liability and publicity release within seven (7) days of acceptance or an alternate potential winner may be selected. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the Prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining entries. Also, because the approximate retail value of the Prize is greater than $600, a Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number is required to be provided to Sponsor for issuance of a 1099 Form. All fees, federal, state and other taxes, costs and expenses relating to the use, acceptance and possession of the Prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event of noncompliance with any requirement, the non-complying potential winner will be disqualified. No substitution, exchange or transfer of Prize except by Sponsor, in which case a prize of equal or greater value will be substituted.
