Your Pet Can Help You Win A Samsung Galaxy S8 From Sprint


Sprint wants to celebrate the start of Gemini season by seeing what sort of chemistry you have with your pet, and the best pairs can win a Samsung Galaxy S8 from the fourth largest wireless carrier in the country. Running until May 29, the contest boils down to two random submissions on a given day being gifted Samsung's latest flagship with no obligation to use it on Sprint's network, though the official rules don't specify whether the prize comes unlocked. Entrants can get in on the fun via Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, though entries are limited to one per person, platform, and day. In other words, you can enter once per day on each social media platform to increase your chances of winning a free Galaxy S8. Just take a good twin picture with your pet and make sure that the hashtags #Twin2Win and #Sweepstakes make it into your post somewhere.

Regarding other rules, your submission can't contain any sort of violent, suggestive, copyrighted imagery, or references to alcohol, drugs, gambling, and the like. This also means that those looking to post a picture of their dog sharing a PlayStation game with them or a photo containing any sort of logos will get disqualified. Winners will be notified of their luck via a direct message on the platform that they used to enter the contest. There are, as with any sweepstakes, a few caveats here. If winners don't answer that message within 24 hours, their prize is forfeit.

Once a prize is claimed, the winner will have to sign an affidavit within five days. If Sprint tries to get your prize out to you and can't, that also qualifies as a forfeit. Entering the giveaway also gives Sprint the right to use the photo you submitted. The contest is limited to U.S. residents, and if you win, you'll get a Form 1099 for taxes on the value of your prize, since it will be reported as income. An unlocked Galaxy S8 from Samsung runs $750 as of this writing, so be prepared to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $100, depending on your income and state of residence.
