Entries received prior to or after the Promotional Period are not eligible for the Promotion.

Sponsor. The Promotion is sponsored by DB Franchising USA, LLC, 110 SW 4th Street, Grants Pass OR, 97526 (“Sponsor”). This Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok or Snapchat (“Media Websites”). Each Promotion entrant is providing his or her information to Sponsor and not to Media Websites.

Winning a Prize (as defined below) is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein and any other rules or regulations the Sponsor implements. The Sponsor reserves the right, at any time in its sole discretion, to amend or modify these Official Rules.

How to Enter. Each Entry will have an equal chance of winning a Prize There are two ways to enter this Promotion (each an “Entry” and collectively, the “Entries”), as follows:

  • Mobile App Entry. Download the Dutch Bros mobile application (“App”) for free from the Google Play or Apple App Store (message and data rates may apply). Use of App is subject to the Terms of Service, available at https://dutchbros.com/terms-of-service. Follow the App registration instructions to create Dutch Rewards account, including entry of your name, email address and other required information. Visit a participating Dutch Bros Coffee outlet and make a purchase through the App, either by redeeming a ‘Dutch Reward’ coupon, by making a payment with the ‘Dutch Pass’ payment feature, or by scanning the Dutch Pass to “Check in” before paying with an alternate method (“Qualifying Purchase”). To pay with the Dutch Pass feature you must first add money to your Dutch Rewards account by logging into the App, selecting Dutch Pass, then Charge Up, and follow the instructions for the applicable payment method. After making a Qualifying Purchase, and upon refreshing the ‘home screen’ of the App or closing out and re-opening the App, each entrant who qualifies as a potential instant winner, will receive a notification on the “Home” Screen of their App, a Push Notification sent to the entrant’s mobile device (if entrant is subscribed to those channels), and/or a transactional email to the email address associated with the Dutch Rewards account. An “instant winner” may be referred to as a “Winner” for purposes of these Official Rules. Each entrant who receives an instant Winner notification will be deemed potential Winner subject to verification of the entrant’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. An entrant is not a winner of any Prize, even if the notification should so indicate, unless and until entrant’s eligibility and the potential winning Entry have been verified and entrant has been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. UPDATE (10/12/2021): Due to an issue with our Promotion software, all Qualifying Purchases made solely by the redemption of a Dutch Reward coupon, and without any other monetary purchases included in the transaction, will receive an Entry after the Promotional Period ends. Any potential winners selected through this method will receive notification on the Home screen of their app, a Push Notification sent to the entrant's mobile device, and/or an email message to the email address associated with the Dutch rewards account.
