KATE SPADE NEW YORK WISH LIST WEDNESDAY GIVEAWAY
(OUR OFFICIAL RULES)
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A purchase or payment will not improve your chances of winning. The Kate Spade New York Wish List Wednesday Giveaway will be conducted as six (6) separate weekly Sweepstakes (collectively, the "Sweepstakes"). The Sweepstakes entry period begins at 12:01 AM Eastern Time ("ET") on November 6, 2013 and ends at 11:59 PM ET on December 16, 2013 (the "Entry Period"), when all entries must be received. Eastern Time shall control for all purposes of this Sweepstakes. Sponsor's clock shall be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes is governed by these Official Rules and is subject to all applicable U.S. federal, state and local laws. Void where prohibited.
1. Eligibility. The Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Proof of residency and age may be required prior to award of any prize. Employees of Kate Spade, LLC d/b/a Kate Spade New York ("Kate Spade") and its parent, subsidiaries, divisions, affiliates, and advertising or promotional agencies, and the immediate family and household members of such individuals, are not eligible to enter or win. "Immediate family members" shall mean parents, step-parents, children, step-children, siblings, step-siblings, or spouses, regardless of where they live. "Household members" shall mean people who share the same residence at least three months a year, whether related or not. In order to enter the Sweepstakes or receive the prize, you must fully comply with the Official Rules and, by entering, you represent and warrant that you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor-designated judges, whose decisions shall be binding and final in all respects relating to this Sweepstakes.
2. How to enter. During the Entry Period, visit www.katespade.com (the "Website") and sign into your account or, if you do not already have an account, you may create one for free. Once you are signed into your account, create a wish list with at least three (3) items from the Website and email the wish list to firstname.lastname@example.org to automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. To create a wish list, when you find an item on the Website that you would like to add to your wish list, simply select the "add to wish list" link below the "add to bag" button. There is no limit on the number of entries that you may receive by creating and submitting as many wish lists as you would like, but you may only win one (1) prize for the duration of the Sweepstakes. Each wish list that you submit will automatically give you one (1) entry into the weekly drawing for that week's Sweepstakes as well as each subsequent weekly Sweepstakes drawing, providing that you have not already won a prize. Entries will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of the entry. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Entering or attempting to enter the Sweepstakes multiple times through the use of multiple email addresses or the use of any robotic or automated devices to submit entries is prohibited and any such entries will be deemed void and disqualified.
3. Random Drawing; Odds of Winning. There will be six (6) separate Sweepstakes weekly drawings (each, a "Weekly Drawing") on each Tuesday starting on November 12, 2013 and ending on December 17, 2013.

Limit to one (1) prize per winning entrant for the duration of the Sweepstakes, regardless of the number of entries by such entrant.
