Less than 10 days before pop megastar Taylor Swift takes over Soldier Field for three nights as part of The Eras Tour, Capital One is giving Chicago Swifties a chance to win a pair of tickets to one of her sold-out Chicago shows.

Swift’s initial ticket sale caused backlash against online ticket seller Ticketmaster after the company canceled its public on sale due to the unprecedented ticket demand.

Now, fans of the singer hoping to be the “Lucky One” in Capital One’s giveaway will have to leave their laptops behind and head to one of the city’s Capital One Cafés to be entered in the giveaway.

Here’s how it works: Fans can visit any Capital One Café in Chicago from May 23-26, and once there, scan a QR code found on signage or ambassador lanyards in the café.

Anyone can enter — not just Capital One customers. Each fan is permitted one entry and the company will select two winners for each of Swift’s Chicago shows — June 2-4 at the lakeside venue.

Winners will be notified via email by 11 a.m. on May 29.

Here are the locations and operating hours of all the participating Capital One Cafés.

7 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday-Friday
