Everyday Comfort Giveaway Sweepstakes Rules

  1. Eligibility: The Everyday Comfort Giveaway Sweepstakes (the "Sweepstakes") is open only to individuals who (a) are legal residents of the United States; (b) are at least 18 years old at the time of entry, and (c) sign up at the online sweepstakes page. Cabot Hosiery Mills, Inc., d/b/a Wide Open Socks (the "Sponsor") and their “Related Persons” (as defined below) are not eligible to participate. 

“Everyday Comfort” means that each winner will receive seven (7) pairs of socks chosen by the winner from in-stock inventory at wideopensocks.com, on a single occasion at the time of prize redemption, and thereafter the socks are protected under Sponsor’s Lifetime Guarantee policy. Please see our policy for complete details. 

Each winner’s first name and initial of their last name will be used by the Sponsor for purposes of advertising and trade without further compensation to the winner. If you do not wish your first name and initial of your last name to be used, you are not eligible to participate in the Giveaway. 

By participating in the Everyday Comfort Giveaway Sweepstakes, you agree to receive email newsletters periodically from Sponsor, but you can opt-out of receiving these email communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the newsletter. 

  1. Agreement to Be Bound By these Rules: By participating in the Everyday Comfort Giveaway Sweepstakes, (a) you represent and warrant that you meet the eligibility requirements set forth above; (b) you agree to be fully and unconditionally bound by these Rules and all decisions made by Sponsor relating to the Sweepstakes. 
  1. Entry Period: Entries will be accepted online beginning on April 1, 2024 at 12:01 AM and ending on June 30, 2024, at 11:59 PM. 
  1. How to Enter: The Sweepstakes must be entered by submitting an entry using the online form provided on this Website. To be eligible to win a prize, entrants must meet the eligibility requirements and fill out the entry form in its entirety, as specified in the online form. Entries that are not complete or do not adhere to these Rules may be disqualified at the sole discretion of Sponsor. 

You may enter only once. You may not enter more times by using different e-mail addresses, identities, or devices in an attempt to circumvent these Rules. If you attempt to circumvent the rules, your submission may be removed from eligibility at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Moreover, Sponsor has the right, in its sole discretion, to maintain the integrity of the Sweepstakes by voiding multiple entries from the same user from different IP addresses; or multiple entries from the same computer in excess of that allowed by sweepstakes rules; or that result from the use of bots, macros, scripts, or other technical or automated means for entering. 

You are not guaranteed to win a prize and your chance of winning depends upon how many people submit valid entry forms. 

  1. Prizes: There will be three (3) winners, each chosen at random by Sponsor. Each winner will receive seven (7) pairs of socks chosen by the winner from in-stock inventory at www.wideopensocks.com, on a single occasion at the time of prize redemption specified by Sponsor. Each of those socks, of course, are Guaranteed for Life. Note: The Guarantee does not cover socks that are destroyed or damaged by means other than actually wearing the socks. For example, damage from pets, insects, fire, or loss in the laundry are not covered. 

The approximate retail value of all prizes is $150. The actual/appraised value may differ at time of prize award. 

Sponsor will bear the cost of shipping each winner’s prize to a single address within the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, and APO/FPO addresses) via shipping method chosen by Sponsor. 

No cash or other prize substitution is permitted. The prize is personal to the winner and may not be transferred to another person. 

  1. Winner selection and notification: Winners will be selected in a random drawing under the supervision of Sponsor. Sponsor will notify winners by e-mail to the e-mail address they provided when entering the Sweepstakes within five (5) days following the winner selection. 

The winners’ first names and initial of last name will also be published on Sponsor’s website. However, if the selected winner does not meet the Sweepstakes eligibility requirements or cannot be contacted, or fails to claim the prize within 15 days from the date on which the award notification was sent, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner selected. 


  1. Rights Granted by You: By entering the Sweepstakes you understand that if you are a winner, Sponsor and its successors and assigns shall have the right without any further notice to you, to print, publish, broadcast, distribute, and use your first name and the initial of your last name for trade, advertising, public relations, and promotional purposes, without any compensation to you. Such right shall be worldwide and perpetual, and may be exercised in any medium and on any platform now or hereafter known. 
  1.

In such case, Sponsor may, at its discretion, select the recipients from all eligible entries received prior to and/or after (if appropriate) the action taken by Sponsor.
