The Promotion is open only to individuals who are legal residents of, and living in, the United States and/or the District of Columbia, who are eighteen (18) years of age or older (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age in your jurisdiction) and who can enter into legally binding contracts under applicable law. The Promotion is expressly void in Florida, New York, Rhode Island, Puerto Rico and where otherwise prohibited by law. Employees, officers and directors of SweepsMonthly™, its legal representatives, affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, advertising, promotional, fulfillment and marketing agencies, and their immediate families (and those living in their respective households), are not eligible to participate or claim a Prize (as defined below) in the Promotion. Participants wishing to obtain a copy of these Rules may request a printed copy of same by writing to: SweepsMonthly, 2360 Lakewood Road Suite 3 PMB 268 Toms River NJ 08755.
For purposes of these Rules, the “Promotion Period” shall be the period beginning at 12:00:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) on January 1st 2018 and ending on 11:59 p.m. EST, December 31st 2018. A “Monthly Promotion Period” is the period starting on the first day of the month at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time EST (midnight) and ending on the last day of the month at 11:59:59 pm EST (just before midnight) during the Promotion Period. The date and time stamp electronically assigned by our servers will determine when an entry is received and will be controlled.
(a) Website Entries. You may enter the Promotion by submitting an entry on the SweepsMonthly™ website located at www.sweepsmonthly.com (the “Site”). The information that you must provide in order to submit an entry on the Site includes your: (i) full name; (ii) mailing address; (iii) e-mail address; (iv) telephone number; (v) gender; (vi) date of birth; and/or (vii) any other information requested by us on the entry form (“Site Registration Data”). You will receive one (1) entry for each calendar day (based on Eastern Standard Time) (each, a “Calendar Day”) of the “Monthly Promotion Period” during which you complete the Site entry form (each, a “Site Entry”). Please note that your Site Entries will not be deemed complete and validly submitted until you have reached the “Confirmed Entry” Site page for each Site Entry, and receive a confirmation number thereon.
(b) Alternative Means of Entry. As an alternative means of entry in the Promotion, you may submit a mail-in entry for each day during the Promotion Period. To complete your mail-in entry, you must include in your letter or postcard your: (i) full name; (ii) mailing address; (iii) e-mail address; (iv) telephone number; (v) gender; and (vi) date of birth (collectively, “AMOE Registration Data” and together with the Site Registration Data, the “Registration Data”).

All AMOE Entries must be postmarked at least five (5) days prior to the end of the Promotion Period to be considered valid AMOE Entries. Contestants must mail their AMOE Entry to: SweepsMonthly, 2360 Lakewood Road Suite 3 PMB 268 Toms River NJ 08755. Each envelope or postcard must contain no more than one (1) AMOE Entry. Any improperly submitted mail-in entries (i.e. any envelope or postcard containing more than one (1) entry or having invalid or incomplete AMOE Registration Data) will be VOID.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THE PROMOTION. PURCHASING GOODS AND/OR SERVICES OFFERED BY OR THROUGH SWEEPSMONTHLY™ OR OUR MARKETING PARTNERS WILL NOT INCREASE THE ODDS OF QUALIFYING FOR A PRIZE.
SWEEPSMONTHLY™ IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REGISTRATIONS, SITE ENTRIES, AMOE ENTRIES, CLAIMS OR NOTICES THAT ARE LOST, LATE, ILLEGIBLE, MISDIRECTED, DAMAGED, INCOMPLETE OR INCORRECT. IF YOU FAIL TO SUBMIT AN ENTRY DURING THE PROMOTION PERIOD FOR ANY REASON INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, INABILITY TO ACCESS THE SITE, YOU WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR A PRIZE.
Each Entry will be collected and stored in the Promotion Database. For purposes of these Rules, the "Promotion Database" is defined as the entire list of Entries, identified by e-mail address, collected during the Promotion Period. SweepsMonthly™ will stop accepting Entries at 11:59 p.m. EST, December 31st 2018.
Within five (5) business days of the conclusion of the Monthly Promotion Period, SweepsMonthly™ will randomly select one (1) Entry from the Promotion Database (“Winner Selection”) for the Prize amount (as set forth below). The potential Prize winner will be notified via e-mail or phone within ten (10) days after Winner Selection (entrants should ensure that their Registration Data is accurate and up to date). The potential Prize winner is subject to eligibility verification. The potential Prize winner will be required to execute a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (“Affidavit”), and return such Affidavit within thirty (30) days following attempted notification.
Non-compliance within this time period may result in forfeiture of the applicable Prize, with an alternative Prize winner selected. In addition, the potential Prize winner will be required to provide picture proof of identification, which may include a driver’s license, passport, voting card or similar government issued identification, and proof that they are the entrant who submitted the applicable winning Entry. The return of a Prize and/or Prize notification as undeliverable may result in forfeiture. In no case shall SweepsMonthly™ be liable in any manner where a winner has not received notification sent from SweepsMonthly™ or where SweepsMonthly™ fails to receive a response from the potential Prize winner within the required response period.
The winning Entry, as well as the associated information of the potential Prize winner, must identically match the records maintained by SweepsMonthly™ in order for a Prize to be awarded. In the event of a dispute, the information maintained by SweepsMonthly™ will govern. Entries will be deemed made by the person under whose e-mail address the Entry was submitted, regardless of who actually submitted the Entry.

The entrant selected as the prize winner will receive a lump sum payment of one Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), payable by check (“Grand Prize”); br />

To request a list of Prize winners, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to: SweepsMonthly, 2360 Lakewood Road Suite 3 PMB 268 Toms River NJ 08755.
Federal, state and local taxes, and all similar fees and assessments, are the responsibility of the applicable Prize winner. SweepsMonthly™ reserves the right to withhold taxes from any winning Prize, as appropriate.
No substitution or transfer of Prizes will be accommodated or permitted, other than at the sole discretion of SweepsMonthly™.
Promotion entry constitutes permission for SweepsMonthly™ to use each entrant's name and likeness (including pictures) for advertising and promotional purposes without further compensation, excluding residents of the State of Tennessee and where otherwise prohibited by law.
By entering the Promotion, each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless SweepsMonthly™, its legal representatives, affiliates, subsidiaries, parent, agencies and their respective members, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all liability for any injuries, losses or damages of any kind arising from, or in connection with, the Promotion, including, but not limited to, liability arising from copyright infringement, improper use of likeness, personal injury, death, damages or monetary loss. Restrictions, conditions and limitations apply. By entering, each entrant further agrees that, in the event that there is any conflict or other inconsistency between the Rules and any advertisements, promotional or marketing materials, e-mails or announcements relevant to the Promotion, these Rules will govern.
Any disputes arising out of or related to the Promotion shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles). Should a dispute arise concerning the Promotion, the terms and conditions of these Rules or the breach of same by any party hereto: (a) the parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties; and (b) you agree to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice to us which can be found HERE. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice (“Final Settlement Offer”). If we provide you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you can submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which can be found HERE. For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our Final Settlement Offer, then we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, we will reimburse any reasonable attorneys’ fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude any party from: (i) seeking injunctive relief in order to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration; and/or (ii) pursuing the matter in small claims court rather than arbitration. Although we may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against SweepsMonthly™ and/or its employees, officers, directors, members, representatives and/or assigns. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney’s fees and court costs that SweepsMonthly™ incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (A) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (B) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first submit an Entry in connection with the Promotion.
Should any part of these Rules be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.

SweepsMonthly™, its legal representatives, affiliates, subsidiaries, parent, agencies and their respective members, officers, directors, employees and agents are not responsible for any problem with Promotion entry generated by computer hardware or software, error or failure, whatever the cause.
