About Contests and Sweepstakes

Amazon occasionally runs contests (games of skill) and sweepstakes (games of chance or giveaways) on and through other channels.

The rules for a contest or sweepstakes can be found by accessing the announcement for the contest or sweepstakes. If you are a contest or sweepstakes winner, you may be required to provide your tax identification information (e.g., Social Security Number or Federal Tax ID Number) to Amazon before receiving a prize. When such information is required by Amazon, we always collect it through Amazon Tax Central, a short self-guided tax survey located at We also occasionally work with third parties to contact winners and fulfill prizes, and information submitted in connection with a contest or sweepstakes will be treated in accordance with the promotion's rules.
