All eligible Entries received during the Contest Entry Period will be randomly selected upon close of contest. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than the number of Winners designated for each Prize if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Entries.

  1. Additional Prize Winners: Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may award additional prizes (“Additional Prizes”) at any time during the Contest Entry Period. Contestants who have completed and submitted eligible Entries during the Contest Entry Period are eligible to win the Additional Prizes and will be automatically entered into the drawings for the Additional Prizes. Potential Winners will be selected in random drawings during the Contest Entry Period from all eligible Entries received. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received prior to the applicable drawing.

Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Winners will be announced within three (3) business days after a random drawing is held. Potential Winners will each be notified by e-mail, phone and/or mail and may be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release ("Affidavit/Release") as well as any other documents which may be required by Sponsor, all of which must be received fully-executed within seven (7) days of date printed on notification or he/she may be disqualified. If after three (3) attempts to contact a potential Winner, Sponsor has been unable to do so, he/she will be disqualified. If a potential Winner is eligible but considered a minor in his or her state of permanent residence, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian who will be required to execute and return the Affidavit/Release and all other required documents on such Winner’s behalf as well as comply with any other requirements imposed on Winner set forth herein. In the event it is determined that a potential Winner has not complied with these Official Rules, has failed to execute and return any required documents within the specified time period, has made false statements or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, then potential Winner will be disqualified. Should a Winner make any false statement(s) in any document required by Sponsor or prize supplier, such winner will be disqualified and required to promptly return to Sponsor the value of his/her prize. If a potential Winner is disqualified for any reason, or if a potential Winner refuses their prize, at Sponsor’s discretion, the prize may be awarded to an alternate Winner. Further, Sponsor reserves the right to forfeit or award any unclaimed or leftover prizes at its sole discretion.
