    On or about Tuesday, November 12, 2019 one (1) potential "Grand Prize" (as defined below) winner will be selected in a random drawing conducted by Sponsor from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. The potential Grand Prize winner will be contacted by phone with instructions on how to claim the Grand Prize. The Sponsor will attempt to contact the potential Grand Prize winner via telephone, Monday-Friday between 10:00 AM ET and 7:00 PM ET, beginning on or about 3 days from the date of the drawing. If the Sponsor is unable to speak directly with the potential Grand Prize winner after 7 attempts within a 7-day period or Sponsor is unable to contact the potential Grand Prize winner due to an invalid, incorrect or bogus phone number, the entry will be rendered null and void and, at the Sponsor's sole discretion, the Grand Prize may be awarded to an alternate winner. Before being declared a winner, the potential Grand Prize winner (or their parent/legal guardian if an eligible winner is less than the age of majority in his/her state of primary residence) may be required to sign a standard Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release form confirming understanding, acceptance and compliance with these Official Rules, acceptance of the Grand Prize as offered and a release releasing Sponsor and the Promotion Entities in respect of injuries, accidents, loss or misfortune related to the conduct of the Promotion, awarding of the Grand Prize, and use and enjoyment of the awarded Grand Prize. Said form(s) must be signed and returned within 14 days from the date sent by Sponsor, or Grand Prize may be forfeited. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, declines to accept the Grand Prize, or in the event that a Grand Prize confirmation or Grand Prize is returned undeliverable, the Grand Prize will be forfeited and, at the Sponsor's sole discretion, Grand Prize may be awarded to an alternate winner. Potential winner may be required to furnish proof of identification.

    The Grand Prize winner must complete a W9 form before receiving the Grand Prize. If the W9 form is not signed and returned within fourteen (14) days of receipt, the Grand Prize winner forfeits said Grand Prize and an alternate potential Grand Prize winner may be selected. The Grand Prize winner will receive a 1099 tax form at the end of that year for the actual retail value of the Grand Prize.

  • BACKGROUND CHECK: If Sponsor so elects, potential Grand Prize winner(s) may be required to submit to, and cooperate in, a confidential background check to confirm eligibility and to help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity for the Promotion will not bring the Promotion Entities into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Promotion or the Promotion Entities as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If requested, potential winner will agree to such background check and understand and agree that Sponsor may disqualify such winner based on the results of the background check.

    The odds of winning the Grand Prize depends on the total number of eligible entries received.
