How can multiple eligible users enter using the same computer?

  1. If you have separate user accounts on your computer, simply log in under your user name and enter the sweepstakes.
  2. If there are multiple users logging in as one (no separate user accounts:)
  • Enter using different browsers: If one person enters using Internet Explorer, the next can enter using Chrome, Firefox, Safari or browser of choice.
  • If using the same browser, go into browser settings and delete cookies. Do this before each person completes the entry for the day on each site. Click here to learn more about deleting cookies.
  • Enter using another device, such as a smart phone or tablet.

Issue With Chrome 32
As you may be aware, this is the newest Chrome browser version that was just released, and this functionality is a design issue within the browser itself (not within our sweepstakes page) and therefore will only be resolved with a newer version of Chrome.

In the interim, you may use your keyboard to type the birth year, month, date, and state abbreviation, or, once you select an entry, you may use the up and down arrow on your keyboard to scroll to the correct selection in the field. For detailed technical information on this issue in the version of Chrome, please see the thread below.
