Each day, a different daily trigger will be activated and the previous day’s trigger will be deactivated. Those interested will have the opportunity to scan the active daily trigger and enter their information into a google form for a chance to win one of two daily prizes. Additionally, each day they enter to win a daily prize, they are automatically entered in to win 1 of 3 Grand Prizes. There are 8 possible entires into the grand prize drawing if they enter every single daily drawing. The daily entries are the only way to be entered into the grand prize drawings.
