Entrants must be legal US residents, at least 18 years old or above, as determined by WTVR-TV and reside in the Richmond/Petersburg Designated Market Area (“DMA”) as defined by The Nielsen Company. Void where prohibited and outside the DMA.
The Sweepstakes begins on January 24, 2015 at midnight ET and ends on February 24, 2015, at 6:00 pm ET . Sponsor reserves the right to shorten or extend the Sweepstakes Period only for reasons outside its control or as set forth herein.
During the Entry Period, Entrants can enter the Sweepstakes by going to CBS 6 on Facebook. If you don’t already have a Facebook account, visit to create one. It is free to create an account. Then, click on Sweepstakes to go back to the Sweepstakes page. Entrants will be prompted with an entry screen, and you must accurately complete the entry form. You will also be asked to submit a “secret word” on your entry form for prize verification purposes. Remember your “secret word” in case you are a prize winner. You will have the opportunity to share on your Facebook wall a notice created by Sponsor regarding the Sweepstakes. If you do, you may also earn 1 bonus entry (up to a total of 6 entries) for every Facebook friend who enters after you by following the link in your post. Only one person will receive credit for any individual who enters, and any disputes as to who referred an entrant will be resolved in the sole discretion of Sponsor. Users may also enter the contest by emailing their entry to All entries become the property of WTVR-TV and will not be returned. Information provided is being disclosed to Sponsor and not to Facebook. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Entrants may not enter the Sweepstakes more than once (not including any bonus entries for referrals). Multiple entries, including those by means of software-generated or other automated processes, will be disregarded. Only one prize per person, household, or email address allowed. Detection of said automated entry will lead to such entries being voided in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Only one registered account per entry. If multiple accounts are detected for a single entrant, the accounts will be voided and the entries will be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address or account used to register will be deemed to be the registrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Sponsor reserves the right to use any and all information related to the Sweepstakes, including information on entrants obtained through the Sweepstakes, for marketing purposes or any other purpose, unless prohibited by law. Sponsor reserves the right to contact entrants and all other individuals whose email address is submitted as part of this promotion.
Beginning January 29 and ending February 25, Sponsor staff will randomly select one entry from all eligible entries as of that date on or about 6:00 pm ET each weekday (each a “Drawing Date”) and announce the winner the following weekday morning on CBS 6 News at around 6:30 am ET to 6:35 am ET. For those drawings selected on Fridays, the winner will be announced the following Monday. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each Drawing Date. Non-winning entries will carry over from one Drawing Date to the next.
There are 16 prizes, one for each Drawing Date. Each of the winners will receive a $600 Walmart Gift Card, valid for goods and products, excluding tobacco products, at any Walmart Store. Cards subject to terms and conditions thereon.
The Sweepstakes winners will be announced on CBS 6 News This Morning at 6:30 am. The potential winner must call the station at the phone number listed during the newscast by 7 am ET the day their name is read to claim – and provide their “secret word” submitted via the entry form to confirm their identity and claim the prize. If a winner does not call and provide the secret word by the 7 am deadline that day, the next day’s prize increases by $600. If there is an un-awarded prize as after the final Drawing Date, Sponsor will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible, non-winning entries received during the Entry Period and attempt to notify the winner by telephone or email.
Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize to another winner by randomly selecting another eligible entry. If Sponsor cannot find an eligible winner for the prize, that prize will not be awarded. All results are unofficial until winners are verified. Once the winner is verified, his or her entry will be removed from the pool of remaining eligible entries.
Winners are subject to verification by WTVR-TV of the winner’s name, age, address, phone number, and Social Security number (where the prize value is equal to or greater than $600.00). In order to claim his or her prize, each winner must appear in person at the business offices of WTVR-TV, located at 3301 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23230 during normal business hours (8:30 am-5:00 pm ET) on business days by no later than March 1, 2015. A potential winner will be disqualified and the prize will roll over to the next Drawing Date if: (a) a winner does not fulfill the eligibility requirements; and/or (b) a winner does not adhere to the Official Rules. Winners will be required to sign an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability and Publicity, and may be required to provide a completed W-9. Failure to do so will disqualify the winner. If a winner is disqualified, Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate winner by random drawing from remaining eligible entries for that Drawing Date (and attempt to notify that winner by telephone or email) or to not award that winner’s prize at all. Prizes cannot be redeemed for cash or substituted for any other items by any winner. Prizes are non-assignable and non-transferable. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a comparable prize of like or greater value, including cash, for any prize, for any reason. Costs of transportation and accommodations, where applicable, and any other cost not specifically included in the prize are the sole responsibility of the winners. All properly claimed prizes will be awarded, but in no event will Sponsor award more prizes than are provided for in these Official Rules.
For a list of prize winners, send a separate, self-addressed, stamped envelope to WTVR-TV, located at 3301 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23230, or appear in person at that location between normal business hours (8:30 am-5:00 pm ET). Requests for winners list must be received by March 31, 2015.
