There is no limit to the total number of entries per employee. In the event of a full return by the customer (i.e. all of the items that were purchased are returned), the entry will be withdrawn from the Retailer Contest. During the Contest Period, there is a maximum of one Prize per Entrant and one Prize per Retailer location.

The selected Entrants will be contacted by telephone by the week of July 29, 2019 and will be asked to provide an email, fax or mailing address to which a mathematical skill-testing question and a declaration and release form will be sent for completion by the selected Entrant. In the event that the selected Entrants (i) cannot be contacted after three (3) attempts, (ii) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question, or (iii) fails to sign and return the declaration and release in the time period provided, it will forfeit the Prize and a redraw from the remaining eligible entries will occur.

The odds of winning depend upon the total number of Retailers participating and sales transactions processed, but are limited to a maximum of one (1) Prize per participating Retailer.

 

𝗧𝗢 𝗪𝗜𝗡:

If the Retailer Contest rules are met, in order to be declared a winner, the Contest winners must have complied with all Retailer Contest rules.

The Contest winner 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝘁 provide the answer to the skill-testing question and must complete, sign and return (electronically, fax or mail) the standard release form to Fairstone within five (5) business days of receiving it or the Contest winner may be disqualified from the Retailer Contest.

That form also contains the Contest winner’s consent to the use of his or her name, address and/or photograph in advertising or other publicity by Fairstone and/or its agencies, without any payment or other compensation to the Contest winner, including without limitation, publication on the Fairstone website(s), microsite(s) and e-newsletters, among other locations, of the Contest winner’s name, the fact that the Contest winner is an employee of the Retailer, that the Contest winner is a Prize winner, any other basic biographical details the Contest winner provides to Fairstone representatives when claiming his or her Prize, and any statements the Contest winner makes to Fairstone representatives regarding the Prize, the Retailer Contest, or the Contest winner’s thoughts/feelings about winning the Prize (which may be quoted in a complete or an abridged format).
