1. Overview of the Budweiser King Club Program
The Program, sponsored by Labatt Breweries of Canada LP (the “Program Sponsor”), provides you with the opportunity to “Score Points” that can provide access to contests, purchase experiences & other promotional items. Points accrue to your personal Points account when you enter a multi-character PIN Code (“PIN”). PINs will be available and advertised at various times and in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: The Budweiser Canada & Budweiser Quebec Facebook pages and other online web pages as determined by the Program Sponsor, TV broadcasts, participating licensed establishments & SMS messages (one must opt-in for the SMS PIN service). Once you become a Budweiser King Club member, you are eligible to have a Points account in which you can start collecting points. Points have no monetary value, but can be accumulated and used in accordance with these Rules.
Points do not expire, and will accumulate for the duration of the Program.
The Program is open to residents of Canada, who are of legal drinking age in their province or territory of residence, who are not employees, contractors, agents or representatives of the Contest Sponsor, or its parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, agencies, distribution companies, the applicable provincial liquor authorities, participating liquor licensees, prize suppliers, the contest judge, or any person who is domiciled with any of the foregoing persons. The provincial liquor authorities are not connected with this Program in any manner whatsoever and are not liable in any way whatsoever in regard to any matter, which relates to this Program. No groups, clubs, newsletters or organizations may participate or redeem a reward in this Program.
