There is no limit to the number of entries an Entrant may receive. Neither the Sponsor nor the Independent Administrator will verify receipt of entries for Entrants. All entries submitted become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Neither Sponsor nor Independent Administrator is responsible for any purchase that is lost, late, misdirected, illegible, postage due or undeliverable, whether due to system errors, omissions, interruption, deletions, defects, delay in operations or transmissions, theft or destruction or failures, faulty transmissions or other telecommunications malfunctions, entries not received resulting from any hardware or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, failed, incomplete or garbled computer or telephone transmissions, typographical or system errors and failures, faulty transmissions, technical malfunctions, or otherwise.
Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, and/or any other methods will void that Entrant’s entry and that Entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. IF there is any discrepancy to the identity of an Entrant, that Entrant will be disqualified. By entering, each Entrant fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and legally binding in all respects. Any person who tampers with the entry process in any way will be disqualified.
WINNER SELECTION: On or about March 2, 2022, three (3) potential prize winners will be selected at random from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Odds of being selected as a potential Prize winner are based upon the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. The random drawing and determination of the potential prize winners will be conducted by the Independent Administrator whose decisions are based upon their sole discretion and these Official Rules and are final and binding in all respects.
First Prize: There will be one (1) first prize of $5,000 cash to be awarded in the form of a check (the “First Prize”) to the official first prize winner (the “First Prize Winner”). The Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of the First Prize is $5,000.
Second Prize: There will be one (1) second prize of $2,500 cash to be awarded in the form of a check (the “Second Prize”) to the official second prize winner (the “Second Prize Winner”). The ARV of the Second Prize is $2,500.
Third Prize: There will be one (1) third prize of $1,000 cash to be awarded in the form of a check (the “Third Prize”) to the official third prize winner (the “Third Prize Winner”). The ARV of the Third Prize is $1,000.
Total ARV of all prizes is $8,500.
PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: No substitution or cash redemption of prizes is permitted. Prizes are not transferable and may not be resold. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value if a prize becomes unavailable due to reasons beyond the control of the Sponsor. No more than the number of prizes outlined in these Official Rules will be awarded. ARV is as of date of printing of these Official Rules. The difference in value of a prize as stated herein and value at time of award, if any, will not be awarded. Prize winners are solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes and all other expenses.
PRIZE NOTIFICATION: The potential prize winners will be notified by the Independent Administrator via email or any other available contact source provided at the time of entry following the random drawing (the “Notification”). If the potential prize winner cannot be contacted or does not respond to the Notification, if he/she is otherwise ineligible as determined by the Sponsor or the Independent Administrator in their sole discretion, or if he/she refuses to accept the prize, then such potential prize winner’s chance to win the respective prize will be forfeited and an alternate potential prize winner will be selected from among the remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period, and such alternate potential prize winner will be notified as outlined above until one (1) Official prize winner per prize is determined in accordance with these Official Rules.
To become the Official prize winner, the potential prize winner must comply with these Official Rules, and upon Notification from the Independent Administrator, must complete and return the Required Documents (as defined in the “PRIZE CLAIMS” section of these Official Rules) in order to claim the respective prize.
PRIZE CLAIMS: Except where prohibited, each potential prize winner will be required to complete, execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (the “Release”) and an IRS Form W-9 (“W-9 Form”) (if applicable) and any other documents required by Sponsor (collectively, the “Required Documents”) within three (3) days from receipt of Notification from the Independent Administrator. If the potential prize winners fails to return the Required Documents within the time period required, or if the Notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential prize winner forfeits his/her right to the prize and another potential prize winner will be selected from among all remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period, even if the disqualified potential prize winner’s name may have been publicly announced. Potential prize winners receiving a prize of $600 or more must report income to the IRS. In the event it is deemed during the verification process that a potential prize winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the prize, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and another potential prize winner will be selected as outlined above. Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements. If it is determined by the Independent Administrator, in its sole discretion, that a potential prize winner is not eligible or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules, the potential prize winner forfeits his/her right to the prize and an alternate will be selected as outlined above, even if the disqualified potential prize winner’s name may have been publicly announced. In the event that a potential prize winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor/Independent Administrator shall have no liability or obligation to such individual.
RELEASE/INDEMNITY: By entering and/or accepting a prize, Entrants and/or prize winners hereby irrevocably consent, where lawful, to the use (which may include without limitation modification or alteration) by Sponsor (and its affiliated and subsidiary companies and their authorized representatives) of their name, image, photographs, videotape, likeness, hometown name, biographical information, and voice for publicity, trade, advertising and promotional purposes in all media now known or hereafter developed worldwide, and on the Internet and World Wide Web, without additional compensation, and without the right of review, notification or approval.
