1.    HOW IT WORKS:

 

(a)   Sweepstakes begins on 12/7/2021 on or after 7:00 AM MST, when Sponsor sends the Sweepstakes message via e-mail to Members.  Go to any TNF Store in the U.S. (Sweepstakes is not valid at TNF Stores located outside the U.S., at The North Face Outlet stores, at www.thenorthface.com or at third party retailers/e-tailers of The North Face products.) Each TNF Store has received one (1) copy of Jimmy Chin’s new book “There and Back: Photographs from the Edge” documenting Mr. Chin’s adventures and expeditions over the course of (20) years (“Book”). If you’re the first eligible Member to check in with a store associate at the register of a given TNF Store, as verified by TNF Store personnel, and you show that store associate the email you received with the email about this offer, you will win that TNF Store’s copy of Book, subject to your compliance with the prize claim procedure in Section 3 below.  Upon award of its copy of Book, the Sweepstakes will end at that TNF Store.

 

(b)  In the unlikely event that an eligible Member fails to check in at a given TNF Store by January 31, 2022 by the time that TNF Store closes for the day, that TNF Store’s Book will be awarded at random to the first eligible Member who approaches TNF Store personnel at the register after the designated date and time.

(a)   To check in, you must provide to TNF Store personnel at the register valid proof of membership in the XPLR Pass Rewards Program, and show the e-mail that you received from Sponsor with the Sweepstakes message (either a print-out of the e-mail or on-screen on your mobile device). YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ANYTHING AT TNF STORE IN ORDER TO CHECK IN NOR WILL MAKING A PURCHASE AT TNF STORE IN ANY WAY INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING THAT TNF STORE’S BOOK. Award of Book prize is made contingent upon TNF Store personnel’s determination that individual is a member of XPLR Pass Rewards Program, otherwise eligible and in full compliance with these Terms and Conditions. Failure to provide valid proof of membership in XPLR Pass Rewards Program, failure to show e-mail with Sweepstakes message or if TNF Store personnel determine in their sole discretion that proof of membership and/or receipt of e-mail with Sweepstakes messages is incomplete or otherwise inadequate will result in disqualification with Sponsor not providing Book and having no other liability or obligation to such individual under any legal theory. In such case, Book will be awarded to the next eligible Member who checks in at that TNF Store. The decisions of Sponsor (including TNF Store personnel) are final and binding in all respects and is not subject to appeal.

(d)  Acting in an inappropriate, belligerent or anti-social manner toward TNF Store personnel, TNF Store customers or any other persons will result in disqualification with Sponsor not providing Book and having no other liability or obligation to such individual under any legal theory.
