If you are not already a member of ClarksUSA.com or BostonianShoe.com, you can set up a Member Account by clicking here [Clarks] or here [Bostonian]. Once logged in, find the Clarks or Bostonian product you wish to review and submit a corresponding Rating & Review ("Review") about such product. You will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes for every Unique Review you submit. A Unique Review is defined as a Review which: (i) pertains to a Clarks or Bostonian Product which you have never before Reviewed, (ii) pertains to a Clarks or Bostonian product with which you have used, (iii) is complete, and (iv) complies with all Terms and Conditions applicable to Ratings and Reviews. A Review may be positive, neutral, or negative about a Clarks or Bostonian product to be valid for entry. SPAM or fraudulent Reviews will not be posted or counted for entry into the Sweepstakes.

Sponsor is not responsible for any entry which is lost, late, invalid, incomplete, or undeliverable, regardless of the reason for such non-submission. Sponsor is deemed to have received an entry when Sponsor's servers record that a Review has been submitted. Sponsor will not verify receipt of entries. In the event of a dispute over the identity of the individual submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the authorized Member Account holder at the time of entry. The authorized Member Account holder is defined as the natural person whose information is on file with Sponsor as being associated with the Member Account under which the submission was made.


5. RANDOM DRAWING/ODDS: Two (2) monthly Prize Winners will be selected at the conclusion of a Monthly Sweepstakes by a random drawing from all eligible entries received.
