Program Rules


Each Sprint Rewards Drawing is predicated on the attainment of reaching a set number of Business Upgrades. The “set number” for each Sprint Promotion is 1000 Business Upgrades.


Each time the combined, “national CONNECTLocal User base” achieves the Business Upgrade Goal, a Sprint Rewards Drawing will be held and participating Users will be automatically entered.


Participating Users will automatically receive: 1 entry for each Invited User and 100 entries for each business that upgrades their free membership.


Invited Users must be invited via CONNECTLocal’s App Invite function.


Invited Users must download the CONNECTLocal App via the Invite Link and keep installed on their mobile device. Winners will be announced through the app.


To qualify a business must upgrade their free membership to the Gold or higher level.


Upgraded business memberships must remain in effect for a minimum of 3 months.


Users must submit Invited Businesses according to the rules on the “Invite A Business” form accessible from the CONNECTLocal App or the website.


Only Business Upgrades obtained by User Invite in accordance to the rules of this program will be eligible for a Sprint Promotion.


A new Sprint Promotion will begin after every “1000 new Business Upgrades” until the 50,000 Upgrade Goal is reached.


Only qualified entries for Invited Users and Invited Business obtained during a Sprint’s time frame will be eligible for that particular Sprint’s Giveaways.


Participation in this promotional giveaway is available to all CONNECTLocal Users, Business Members and Team Members who invite other Users and Businesses according to the rules of this promotion.


Participants must have reached the legal age of 18 and reside in the United States.


Winning Reward Participants have 30 days to claim their prize or risk forfeiture. Each Prize Winner will be responsible for any taxes associated with their prize which may be liable under Federal, State, or local laws.


Winning Participants must agree to comply with all the rules, procedures and policies which govern each Reward Drawing; and which may extend beyond what is listed here.


This program will terminate upon the attainment of 50,000 Invited Business Upgrades or December 31, 2021; whichever comes first. The program time may be extended by The Local Project, LLC.


NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY BY THE USER EVER, AT ANY TIME. This program’s primary objective is to enroll local area businesses into CONNECTLocal who upgrade their free membership to the Gold or Platinum level.


Upon the successful completion of 50 Sprint Promotions, all participating Users will be entered into a new User Rewards Drawing where one User will be selected to receive $1,000,000.


The $1,000,000 Grand Prize Reward will be issued through a random drawing from all eligible entries.

Number Cloaking

Reasons we can’t text most businesses include business owners do not want to give out their personal phone number or carry two different phones.

MobileCONNECT keeps your personal phone number private. When you send customers a text message it is processed through our system and delivered from a phone number in our pool. When the User responds, our system keeps track and relays the message back to you.

This allows you to receive and send messages without revealing your personal number
