Introduction: Plan My Fun, Inc. (“PMF”) is offering Online/In-App Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”). NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE DOES NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING
PMF runs various sweepstakes through their mobile applications. All sweepstakes are based upon chance and not skill. (Any contests based primarily on skill will follow a different set of rules and these rules do not apply).
PMF advertises the Sweepstakes through various means, depending upon the type of Sweepstakes and the channels we use. Entrants can find out about them on PMF’s website, if any, or through PMF’s social media channels, which include Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Instagram, Google+, and others.
Terms for Sweepstakes.
Entrant’s participation in any Sweepstakes is subject to and governed by the official rules set forth here, along with any additional guidelines (“Additional Terms”) outlined in the specific Sweepstakes listed on PMF’s mobile application or elsewhere (the “Specific Sweepstakes”). If there is a conflict between these official rules and the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Sweepstakes, the Additional Terms will govern.
Unless otherwise noted in the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Sweepstakes, PMF Sweepstakes are only open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, including the District of Columbia, who are the age of majority in their jurisdiction (“Entrants”). Entrants must be active users of the PMF mobile application. Employees of Sponsors, Merchants, their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies and their family/household members (defined as parents, spouse, children, siblings, grandparents) are not eligible to enter. Sweepstakes supervisors and members of their immediate families are not eligible to participate or win. Void outside the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, and where prohibited, taxed, or restricted by law. Sweepstakes are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules and regulations. VPN users (users that use any type of application or software to change their IP address or location) are prohibited from participating in any Sweepstakes offered by PMF. PMF reserves the right to request winning Entrant to verify its location.
Entrants should review the Additional Terms for information regarding whether purchase is necessary for a Specific Sweeptakes, but sweepstakes will always have a free method of entry.
Unless otherwise outlined in the Additional Terms for the Specific Sweepstakes, the Sponsor of the Sweepstake is Plan My Fun, Inc., (“Sponsor” or “PMF”).
The Sweepstakes begins and ends on the time and date outlined in the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Sweepstakes, according to PMF’s internal time clock and time zone. All times for the events are listed in the local time where the event is located, whether Pacific Daylight or Pacific Standard Time.
Unless otherwise noted in the Additional Terms outlined in the Specific Sweepstakes, or otherwise herein under Grand Prize Sweepstakes, Entrant may only enter one time. Multiple entries for Sweepstakes will not increase Entrant’s chances of winning (Entrant will still only receive one entry). (For example, a sponsor of a “Regular Prize” sweepstakes may allow for multiple entries per person subject to the terms therein).
Entrant may enter into as many current Sweepstakes as Entrant is otherwise qualified to enter. In any given year, if Entrant’s winnings exceed US$600, Entrant’s winnings may be considered a taxable event by the IRS and Eventbrite may be required to issue Entrant a tax form 1099.
Grand Prize Sweepstakes
For Grand Prize Sweepstakes, up to 25 entries are allowed. Winner of the Grand Prize Sweepstakes will receive either a $200 gift card, or the prize described under “Additional Terms” within the PMF application
In some cases, Entrant may be asked to enter through our app or a social media channel. In that case, Entrant must have an account on that social media channel. All social media channels PMF uses to launch Sweepstakes are free to join and PMF makes commercially reasonable efforts to make sure Sweepstakes follow the guidelines set forth by the social media channel for promotions of that nature. In all cases where Entrant is required to place hashtags on the entry, all hashtags must be included or Entrant’s entry will not be eligible for the Specific Sweepstakes. Additional requirements for entry may apply from time to time. Additional requirements will be specified in the “Additional Terms” outlined in the Specific Sweepstakes.

In Specific Sweepstakes that include a refer-a-friend entry, Entrants are required to invite three friends to download the PMF application. To be eligible, all three friends must become active users of the PMF application. (the number of referral required is subject to change). After the three referred friends successfully download the PMF app and become active users, Entrant will receive only one entry into a “Regular Prize” sweepstakes.
For Grand Prize sweepstakes, Entrants may earn up to 25 total entries, each entry being earned after the three friend referrals download the PMF app and become active users. A successful friend referral is one that adds an individual user to the PMF app who then actively uses the PMF app. Active use of the PMF app will be determined by the user saving one located to a user-generated list and opening the PMF app at least once a week.
