The date and time of an eligible purchase will determine the Weekly Drawing for which the entry is eligible. Entries which are eligible for a Weekly Drawing will not be eligible for any subsequent Weekly Drawing(s). Each Alaska Airlines Visa card purchase must be made within the U.S. during the Promotion Period in order to be valid. The value of a purchase will not increase or decrease your chances of winning a prize; however, the value of each eligible single purchase transaction will determine the value of Weekly Prizes as detailed below in Rule #7. Only payments made with an Alaska Airlines Visa card that is not in default under the customer agreement for that account and issued by Bank of America, N.A., processed through Visa U.S.A. Inc.’s transaction-processing system during the Promotion Period are eligible for automatic entry. Purchases of goods and services must be at a participating merchant location in the U.S. In the event of a dispute as to who submitted a particular cardholder entry, such entry will be deemed to be submitted by the primary person in whose name the card used to enter the Sweepstakes was issued; However, in the event the cardholder entry is made using an Alaska Airlines Visa Business card, such entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person whose Mileage Plan member number is assigned to earn miles and rewards on the Business card account. Additionally, in the event a cardholder entry is made using an Alaska Airlines Visa Business card designated as an individual account in a corporate bill structure, such entry will be deemed to be submitted by the owner/authorized officer of the Business entity associated with the Business Card Agreement. See the Alaska Airlines Visa® Business Program Rules for complete details on Business Level and Individual Level Earning. Account adjustment transactions/returns, cash advances, balance transfers, non-U.S.-dollar purchases, Interlink®-processed transactions, purchases authorized by entering a PIN (personal identification number), and payment of late fees or over-limit fees are excluded from automatic entry.
