The Contest runs from June 1, 2019 at 12:01:01 a.m. Eastern Time until June 30, 2019 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time (the "𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗱") at participating retailers* throughout Canada (each, a “𝗥𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗲𝗿”, and collectively, the “𝗥𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘀”), as more particularly detailed below).
There are four (4) prizes available to be won (individually, a "Prize" and collectively, the "Prizes"). Each Prize consists of a credit to the Fairstone issued Credit Card account of the selected Entrant in an amount equal to the sum of all eligible purchases made at the participating Retailer store during the Contest Period, less the amount of any items returned prior to the end of the Contest Period, with a minimum of $1,000.00 and up to a maximum of $5,000.00 CDN.
In the event that a selected Entrant entered the contest via the "no purchase required" method, the Prize will consist of a credit to the account of the selected Entrant in an amount equal to the highest amount eligible to be won by any other qualifying Entrant during the Contest Period, but not to exceed $5,000.00 under any circumstances.
The approximate retail value of each Prize is $5,000.00 CDN maximum, but can range from $1,000.00 to $5,000.00 depending on the highest purchase amount. The Prizes will be awarded to the selected Entrants identified on the entries that are drawn. The selected Entrant's Fairstone issued Credit Card account must be in good standing in order for the Entrant to be declared the winner and to receive the Prize.
