Gift cards are valid only at participating locations and are subject to all terms, conditions and restrictions on the face of the gift cards or imposed by issuer. If by reason of printing or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules, a random drawing will be held to award the advertised number of prizes in the relevant category. All properly claimed prizes will be awarded, but under no circumstances will more than the advertised number of prizes be awarded. Sponsor makes no representation or warranty concerning the appearance, safety or performance of any prize awarded. Prizes are awarded “AS IS.” Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes. Federal, state, and local taxes on prizes, if any, and any other costs, fees and expenses are the sole responsibility of winner. An IRS form 1099 and other tax-related forms and documents may be issued by Sponsor if required by law.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Sponsor will notify potential winners by email. If a potential winner: (a) does not respond after the first attempted contact from Sponsor within five calendar days by replying to the email; (b) is not in compliance with these Official Rules; (c) does not meet the eligibility requirements; (d) declines the prize; or (e) does not sign and return required documents or provide required identification by deadlines established by Sponsor, he or she will be disqualified and the prize awarded to an alternate winner as determined by random drawing from the remaining eligible entries. Sponsor will conduct up to two alternate drawings for the prize, time permitting. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or failure to receive notification for any reason, including inactive email account(s), technical difficulties associated therewith, or the potential winner’s failure to adequately monitor his or her email account. The potential winner, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, may be required to: (a) provide confirmation that he or she is the owner of the relevant email address; (b) provide a scan or photo of a state-issued identification card; and/or (c) sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and release of liability, or a publicity release. Once the above conditions have been satisfied, and the winner confirmed, Sponsor will make the prize available for pick up by winner at Sponsor’s office (see address in section entitled “Free Code by Written Request” above). Alternatively, winner may request that Sponsor mail the prize to the address provided by winner. Sponsor reserves the right to mail the prize to winner due to health or other considerations that, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, make an in-person pick up inadvisable. Sponsor shall not be responsible for prizes lost, stolen or destroyed during or after mailing.
