Winner Selection, Notification, and Verification. On or about July 31, 2020, the winner will be selected by a random drawing from all eligible entries received by Sponsor. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries. Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner on or about August 5, 2020 by email or phone. Potential winner must respond to initial notification attempt within 5 business days. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, delayed, misdirected or returned prize notifications. Awarding of prize is subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Potential prize winner may be asked to complete, sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility, Waiver of Liability and Publicity Release form (TN residents need not sign Publicity Release) and, if so, do so within 5 business days of the time Sponsor sends such document to winner. By signing and returning an Affidavit of Eligibility, Waiver of Liability and Publicity Release, winner agrees to be subject to a personal background check.

(TN residents need not consent.) If potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, if potential winner does not respond within 5 business days of first notification attempt, if prize notification or attempted notification is returned as undeliverable, if potential winner is deemed ineligible for any reason, if potential winner fails to sign and return required documents and provide required identification by the deadlines established by Sponsor, or if potential winner declines prize offered, the prize will be forfeited and, time permitting, Sponsor may select a new potential winner in a second-chance random drawing from the remaining eligible entries. Any alternate winner is subject to all eligibility requirements and restrictions of these Official Rules. If a winner cannot be verified for the prize after one alternate drawing, no further drawings will be held for the prize and the prize will not be awarded.
