Participating stores located in Oregon may offer entry to consumers only by mail or in-store without purchase; consumers should ask for an Entry Form at the customer service counter of such stores. Any attempt by a person to use multiple Loyalty Cards or identities to gain more entries than permitted by these Official Rules shall result in disqualification, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. By participating, entrants warrant and represent that all personal information provided in their entries are truthful, current and accurate, and are entrants’ own information.

For purposes of Sweepstakes entry, entrants are not permitted to share Loyalty Cards. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the “authorized account holder” associated with the Loyalty Card disclosed at the time of entry, who must comply with these Official Rules. Potential winners may be required to provide evidence (to the Sponsor’s satisfaction) that they are the authorized account holder of the Loyalty Card associated with a winning entry. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the person who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.

If such a potential winner is not available or if there is no answer at the time any notification telephone call is made, a phone message will be left (if possible). Any such phone message or e-mail will instruct the potential winner to call a specified telephone number or reply by e-mail within three (3) full business days after the time that the notification message was left. Potential winner must reply as instructed to identify him/herself, confirm his/her eligibility and ability to accept the prize, and provide his/her complete contact information within such three (3) full business day period, or he/she will be disqualified. In Sponsor’s sole discretion, such potential winners may only be notified one time as set forth above for attempted prize notification.

Sponsor makes no representations regarding the tax liability associated with any prize, and winners are advised to seek counsel regarding any tax liabilities associated with their prize. Any winner or potential winner may be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion if: (a) he/she fails to provide any required information or properly completed documents within the required time period; (b) he/she fails to comply with any of the terms of these Official Rules; or (c) if any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, any voice-mail or message left is not timely returned, any forms sent to potential winners are not timely returned as instructed, or any prize is not picked up within 30 days of notice of availability. In the event of disqualification of a winner, at Sponsor’s sole discretion the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner selected from among the remaining applicable eligible entries via the means of winner determination described herein, pending verification of eligibility. If any prize remains unclaimed after three (3) potential winners have been notified for that prize, the prize may remain unawarded, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. No responsibility is assumed by Sponsor for any incorrect or missing postal address, e-mail address or phone number associated with an entry, or any change of address, e-mail or phone number of entrant after entry submission. Any prize details and restrictions not specified will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Prizes may differ from any vehicle shown in promotional materials. No prize transfer.
