Upon completion of the purchase, Entrant will automatically receive the entry or entries for each purchase of $1 at the Website.  Also, Entrant will receive one (1) entry for every $1 purchased of a gift card; however, use of a gift card to purchase is NOT a qualifying purchase.  If an Entrant requests a refund, the refund and entries removed from the Entrant’s entry will be determined based on the Sponsor’s refund policy at https://shop.gasmonkeygarage.com/pages/return-policy. 

 

Sponsor may offer additional entries via Purchase during specific timeframes of the Sweepstakes. Those offerings will be posted at the Website.

Sponsor makes no representation, warranty or guarantee of any kind that persons participating via Donation will be eligible to receive any tax deduction or other charitable benefit in conjunction therewith. The availability of any such charitable benefit is a matter solely between Entrant and the Gas Monkey Foundation.
