The Contest is not open to employees or agents of the Sponsor, or their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, and any entity involved in the production, implementation, promotion, administration, or fulfillment of the Contest (collectively, the “Administrators”) and individuals living in the same households of each of the above.
There is one (1) prize available to be won (the “Prize”). The Prize consists of a Dufresne Furniture & Appliances Gift Card for the amount of $1000.00 CDN. The Prizes will be awarded to the selected Entrant identified on the entry that is drawn.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
No purchase is necessary to participate in this contest. To be eligible to win, each Entrant must subscribe to the Dufresne Furniture & Appliances Email Newsletter during the Contest Period, and remain subscribed for the duration of the Contest Period. Once subscribed, each Entrant will automatically be entered into the draw.
Only one entry per person. Alternate e-mail addresses with the same personal information will be considered a duplicate entry and will not be eligible for the Contest.
There will be one (1) random draw from all the eligible entries submitted by the end of the Contest Period. The draw will take place on July 3, 2018, on or about 2:00 PM (CST) at 116 Nature Park Way, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3P1J9. The draw will be for the Prize as defined above.
The selected Entrant will be contacted by telephone and will be asked to provide his or her 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 Entrant (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, he or she will forfeit the Prize in question and a redraw from the remaining eligible entries will occur. The declaration and release forms to be completed by the selected Entrant pursuant to these Contest Rules must be returned within five (5) business days of issuance of notification. Non-compliance with any of the foregoing may result in disqualification and awarding of Prize to an alternate Entrant.
ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE CONTEST SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL THE ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING ENTRY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND THE ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS.
ODDS OF WINNING:
The odds of winning this Contest depend upon the total number of eligible entries received. The probability of winning decreases as the number of Entrants increase during the Contest Period.
If your name is drawn, and in order to be declared a winner, you must have complied with all Contest Rules. You must also correctly answer, unaided, a time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question, which will be administered by a Dufresne representative via email, fax, or mail. Then, after Dufresne verifies whether you have complied with these rules, you must sign Dufresne’s standard release form before being entitled to receive the Prize. That form also contains your consent to the use of your name, address and/or photograph in advertising or other publicity by Dufresne and/or its agencies, without any payment or other compensation to you, including without limitation, publication on the Dufresne website(s), microsite(s) and e-newsletters, among other locations, of your name, the fact that you are a Dufresne customer, that you are a Prize winner, any other basic biographical details you provide to Dufresne representatives when claiming your Prize, and any statements you make to Dufresne representatives regarding the Prize, the Contest, or your thoughts/feelings about winning the Prize (which may be quoted in a complete or an abridged format).
You must complete, (electronically) sign and return the standard release form to Dufresne within five (5) business days of receiving it or you may be disqualified and Dufresne may select another Entrant for a chance to win if time permits.
The Prize must be accepted as awarded and cannot be transferred, exchanged, substituted, or redeemed for cash. If for any reason the Prize is unavailable, the Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize or prize component for one of equal or greater value. Sponsor will not be responsible, however, and cash or other substitutions will not be provided, if any factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control prevents any part(s) of the Prize from being fulfilled.
