“Ad in Your Hand” Contest Rumble Rules, and Overly Explaining Itself.

Promotional Contests of Chance. (Sourced from this webpage you can visit)

Promotional contests of chance (promotions) are “free entry” contests that commercial businesses can use to promote their products or services.

Commercial businesses do not have to register or get a license to have a promotion. Individuals and charitable or non-profit organizations cannot offer promotions. An example of a promotion is when a restaurant gives free lunch to someone who has placed his/her business card in a jar for a drawing.

The purpose of a promotion is to advertise or promote the services, goods, wares or merchandise of a commercial business. It is not to raise money for an individual, commercial business or charity. As an alternative, charities may be eligible to offer a raffle.

There must always be a way for anyone to enter a promotional contest of chance for free. Additional entries can be based on a purchase of services, goods, wares or merchandise; however, contests offered through the mail must not offer additional entries based on purchases.
