ELIGIBILITY: The “Stash Costco Stock Party Sweepstakes” (the “Sweepstakes”) is offered by Stash Investments LLC (“Stash” or “Sponsor”), an affiliate of Stash Financial, Inc. Stash is not a bank or depository institution licensed in any jurisdictions. Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico who are at least eighteen (18) years of age at the time of entry (“Entrants”). Void in all U.S. territories and possessions and where prohibited by law. This Sweepstakes is governed by U.S. law and is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Entrants may be required to meet certain provisions of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, 15 U.S.C. ¬ß 80b-1, and the rules thereunder. Entrants must have Internet access in order to enter the Sweepstakes. Each Entrant must be the rightful owner (or have authorized use) of the e-mail address identified in the Entrant’s entry and/or the Entrant’s Stash Personal Portfolio (as defined below). Stash will use commercially reasonable efforts to exclude employees of Stash, and its respective affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, advertising, promotion and fulfillment agencies and members of the immediate family or household of each, from being eligible to win prizes under this Sweepstakes. Immediate family member is defined as a parent, sibling or any person residing in the same household as an employee. For purposes of this Sweepstakes, a “Stash Personal Portfolio” is an individual taxable brokerage account advised by Sponsor that is in good standing. Sponsor reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion whether a Stash Personal Portfolio is closed and/or in good standing. An account in good standing for purposes of this Sweepstakes is an account for which all required account opening documentation has been completed and verified, and is not locked, or restricted, or otherwise flagged in any way. If an Entrant’s Stash Personal Portfolio is closed or not in good standing for any reason at any time, you may no longer be eligible to participate in this Sweepstakes and any prizes you win in accordance with these rules may be forfeited.
TIMING: Sweepstakes begins on October 15, 2021 at 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time (“EDT”) and ends on October 15, 2021 at 9:00 PM EDT (the ”Promotion Period”).
TWO (2) WAYS TO ENTER: (A) Successfully Claim Your Stock at the Stash Stock Party: To earn one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes, Entrants must complete the following steps during the Promotion Period: (i) visit https://party.stash.com/, and (ii) successfully claim their “Stock Reward” by completing either set of eligibility steps needed to become an “Eligible Rewards Recipient” during the Stash Stock Party offered by Sponsor on October 15, 2021, which is governed by the Stash Stock Party Program Terms and Conditions effective as of October 15, 2021 (the “Stock Party Terms”) and the interactive instructions displayed at https://party.stash.com/, and (iii) adhere to the Stock Party Terms and meet all of the eligibility requirements set forth therein.

For the avoidance of doubt, if an Entrant fails to complete either set of eligibility steps required to claim a “Stock Reward” during the Stash Stock Party offered by Sponsor on October 15, 2021 in strict accordance with the Stock Party Terms, then such Entrant will not receive an Entry into the Sweepstakes via this entry method; or (B) FREE ENTRY METHOD: To enter without successfully claiming a “Stock Reward” during the Stash Stock Party offered by Sponsor on October 15, 2021 in accordance with the Stock Party Terms, Entrants will be required to complete and submit one (1) designated online survey during the Promotion Period to earn one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes by visiting the following link: https://forms.gle/tPdc1oevtWnnMsni9.
