You could win $25,000 from Cinnabon and Freeform this holiday season—no purchase necessary

It goes without saying that we could all use a little extra cash this time of year.

Whether you need it for shopping, traveling to visit family or just have end-of-the-year bills to pay, chances are you’re hoping to find some cash in your stocking this holiday season.

If you don’t want to just wait and hope you get some for Christmas, Cinnabon and the channel Freeform — known for their “25 Days of Christmas” movie countdown — have teamed up to give away a massive cash prize that is sure to make your holiday season bright.

Through the 25 Days of Christmas Sweepstakes, Cinnabon and Freeform will be giving away $25,000 cash to one lucky winner! To enter, just head to Cinnabon’s website now through Christmas Day, Dec. 25, to fill out a small form and let Cinnabon know your favorite product of theirs from a drop-down menu. There is no purchase necessary to enter, but there is a limit of one entry per eligible entrant.

A winner will be chosen and notified around Dec. 31. If you win, you will be responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes related to the $25,000 cash prize.


While you wait to see if you’re a winner, you can watch Freeform’s “25 Days of Christmas” movies now through Christmas Day. The lineup includes classics like “The Santa Clause” and “Home Alone” and new, original films like “Ghosting: The Spirit of Christmas”.

To make your movie night extra cozy, you can also order a 25 Days of Christmas 25-count BonBites CinnaPack, delivered for free through Grubhub now through Christmas Eve. If Grubhub isn’t available where you live, you can also order Cinnabon products from Harry & David, including classic rolls, popcorn and even this amazing-looking Cheesecake Factory Cinnabon cinnamon swirl cheesecake with cream cheese frosting and caramel. Yum!
