Black Friday Blackout

What is Blackout and how do I play?

Black Friday Blackout gives participants the opportunity to obtain a promo code that they can apply towards certain items on the GOAT App (the “Blackout Promo Code”). Blackout consists of three rounds, each with a specific theme and corresponding collection of items that you can use to create unique virtual “Spaces” that best suit each round’s theme.

To enter a Blackout round, you will first need to create a Space complete with at least one (1) item and a maximum of 10 items. You are allowed to create up to four (4) Spaces per each Blackout round.

Certain items available within the relevant Blackout collection can be added to your Spaces. This includes, but is not limited to, sneakers, apparel and accessories.

Before each Blackout round begins, you will be made aware of the Blackout theme through relevant push notifications as well as on the Black Friday homepage. You will also be notified when the round has opened and you can start creating your personal Spaces. You will have a limited amount of time to create your Spaces before they are ultimately locked prior to gameplay. Blackout is live streamed and, while your Spaces will be automatically entered into the competition, you must actively participate in gameplay for a chance to win.

During each Blackout round, once Spaces have been locked, items from the Black Friday collection that best match the theme will be selected. If your Space includes the item that is selected, the item will be highlighted within that Space. If you tap on that item within three (3) seconds of it being highlighted, you will earn 10 additional tickets you can use in the Raffle.

If a total of six (6) items within one of your Spaces are selected, and you tap on your winning Space, you may be a potential winner of that Blackout round. Blackout round winners will be given a Blackout Promo Code that they can apply to purchases made from the corresponding Blackout collection. The Blackout Promo Code can only be used to shop your winning Blackout round’s collection. Items in each collection are available on a first come, first served basis and are limited while supplies last.

Potential winners will be notified during, or by the end of, each Blackout round. Potential winners will then receive an email that details how to receive, and use, their Blackout Promo Code.

It is important to note that you can only win once per Blackout round.

All potential Blackout winners may be subject to verification and will have until Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT to use their Blackout Promo Code on their respective Blackout collection. All unused Blackout Promo Codes will expire after Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT.

What is a Blackout Promo Code?

A Blackout Promo Code can only be used to shop specific Blackout collections for a limited time. A Blackout Promo Code is only provided to Blackout winners and expires on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT.

A Blackout Promo Code can be used on any items available in the relevant Blackout collection. Potential winners will be given a Blackout Promo Code worth $500 that will auto reduce as it is spent on items within the relevant Blackout collection. If an item costs more than the amount on your Blackout Promo Code, the price difference will be applied to your payment method on file.

All items are available on a first come, first served basis and are limited while supplies last.

Can I obtain more tickets from playing Blackout?

You are able to earn 10 additional tickets if, when an item in one of your Spaces is selected, you tap on that item within three (3) seconds.

Additionally, you can obtain 25 tickets for sharing your Spaces for each Blackout round on social media. Each share on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram Post, Instagram Stories, TikTok and Facebook yields 25 tickets, for a total of 150 tickets for each Blackout round.
