entrant must then submit the requested registration information, which may include, but is not
limited to, his/her complete first and last name (no initials), street address (no P.O. Boxes), city,
state, ZIP Code, date of birth, and confirmation that he/she has read and agrees to these Official
Rules. An eligible entrant may then play the Instant Win Game by following the on-screen
instructions (“Game Play”). After the Game Play is completed, the entrant will receive
notification as to whether he/she is a potential Instant Win Game winner (“Instant Win
Notification”). A potential Instant Win Game winner will also receive an Instant Win Notification
e-mail. Each entrant who receives a winning Instant Win Notification will be deemed a potential
Instant Win Game winner pending confirmation and verification of the entrant’s eligibility and
compliance with these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Upon the
completion of a Game Play, an entrant will also receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes.
All potential winning Game Plays are subject to verification by Sponsor or Administrator, whose
decisions are final and binding. An entrant is not a winner of an Instant Win Game prize, even if
the Game Play/Instant Win Notification should so indicate, unless and until entrant’s eligibilityand the potential winning Game Play have been verified and entrant has been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Any Game Play that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective Game Play, is void, and will not be honored. If an entrant accesses the Website on his/her mobile device to enter this Promotion, the entrant’s wireless service provider may charge the entrant for applicable data charges. Entrants should consult their wireless service providers regarding their pricing plans. Message and data rates may apply. Entrants should review their mobile devices’ capabilities for specific instructions.
An entrant is limited to receiving one (1) Game Play and one (1) Sweepstakes entry during the
entire Entry Period. In the event that a household enters the Promotion using more than five (5)
unique e-mail addresses, all of the Game Plays/entries associated with that household (determined
by Sponsor and/or Administrator in their sole discretion) may be disqualified. For purposes of the
Sweepstakes, an entrant’s residential address and e-mail address will be the physical address and
e-mail address submitted at the time of entry/Game Play. Entrants will not be allowed to change
their physical address or e-mail addresses. Each entrant may be required to furnish proof of
identification and other proof of eligibility under these Official Rules. Any attempted form of
participation in this Sweepstakes other than as described herein is void. If it is discovered or
suspected at Sponsor’s sole discretion that an entrant has registered or attempted to register more
than once using multiple email addresses, multiple identities, proxy servers or like methods, all of
that entrant’s Game Plays/entries will be declared null and void, and that entrant may be
ineligible to win a prize. Also, if it is discovered that any entrant attempts to receive additional
Game Plays/entries in excess of the stated limitation, that entrant will, at Sponsor’s sole
discretion, be disqualified from the Promotion.
4. WINNER SELECTION/RANDOM DRAWING:
Winners will be selected in two ways: (1)
On or about July 2, 2015, the Administrator will randomly select five (5) potential Grand Prize
winners from all eligible Sweepstakes entries received during the Entry Period; and (2) Instant
Prizes will be made available at random times throughout the Entry Period. To be an Instant Prize
winner, an entrant’s Game Play must have occurred either at the exact randomly predetermined
winning time as determined by Administrator. If a Game Play does not occur at the exact
randomly predetermined winning time, then the next entrant’s Game Play to occur after that time
will be an Instant Prize winner. The number of Instant Prizes available to be won will decrease
during the Promotion Period as Instant Prizes are awarded and claimed. Each winner is deemed to
be a potential winner, pending verification of his/her eligibility and compliance with these
Official Rules as determined by Sponsor, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Odds of winning a Grand
Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received. Odds of winning an Instant Prize depend
on the time of Game Play as set forth above. Decisions made by the Sponsors and Administrator
in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes are final. Sponsors and Administrator are not
responsible for errors in the administration or fulfillment of this Sweepstakes, including, without
limitation, mechanical, human, printing, distribution or production errors, and may modify or
cancel this promotion based upon such errors at their sole discretion without liability.
5. SWEEPSTAKES PRIZES:
Five (5) GRAND PRIZES (each a “Grand Prize”). The Grand
Prize is a trip for four (4) people (winner and three  guests) to see a Taylor Swift concert. The
Grand Prize includes round-trip coach class air transportation from a major commercial airport
near winner’s residence to the Concert Location for winner and three (3) guests, two (2) nights
hotel standard accommodations (one  room/quad occupancy), ground transportation between
the airport and hotel at the Concert Location only, and four (4) Taylor Swift concert tickets for
one of the Concert Dates listed below. Concert ticket seat selection is non-negotiable and
determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. The “Concert Location” and “Concert Date” mean one
of the following cities where THE 1989 WORLD TOUR will be held on the corresponding date:
(1) Los Angeles, CA on August 22, 2015, (2) Denver, CO on September 5, 2015, (3) Nashville,
TN on September 25, 2105, (4) Dallas, TX on October 17, 2015 and (5) Atlanta, GA on October
In the event that a Grand Prize winner’s residence is close to Concert Location so that air
transportation is deemed by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to be unnecessary, the Grand Prize
will not include air transportation, and ground transportation, of the Sponsor’s choosing, will be
provided to/from the winner’s residence to the hotel in lieu of airfare. For the avoidance of
confusion, the Grand Prize does not include any type of meet-and-greet with Taylor Swift or
other backstage experience. The Sponsor is not responsible if a potential Grand Prize winner is
unable or unavailable to accept or use the Grand Prize or a portion of the prize. If the Grand
Prize winner and/or his/her guests (“Guests”) cannot attend the Concert on the date and at the
location specified by the Sponsor, the winner will forfeit all rights to the Grand Prize. The
Concert tickets are subject to terms and conditions as specified thereon, and the Grand Prize
winner and the Guests must comply with all venue rules and regulations; failure to do so may
result in forfeiture of the Grand Prize.
Grand Prizes are subject to availability.
The Sponsor is not responsible for any circumstances that make it impractical or impossible to fulfill all elements of the Grand Prize; the Sponsor’s only obligation will be to provide the remaining elements, if any. If, for any reason, any prizerelated event is delayed, cancelled or postponed, or if any portion of the prize is not available for any reason, the Sponsor may cancel or modify this Sweepstakes in its discretion and may award a substitute prize of comparable or greater value, including, without limitation, a cash prize equivalent to the approximate retail value of the Grand Prize as stated in these Official Rules. The approximately retail value of a prize represents the Sponsor’s good faith determination, is final and binding, and cannot be appealed.
A Grand Prize won by an eligible Entrant who is a minor in his/her state of residence will be
awarded to the winner’s parent or legal guardian on behalf of the minor. All Guests traveling
with the Grand Prize Winner must either be of the age of majority in his/her state of residence at
the time of the prize fulfillment or, if a Guest has not reached the age of majority in his/her state
of residence at the time of the prize fulfillment, the Grand Prize Winner or another Guest must be
such minor Guest’s parent or legal guardian. If the Grand Prize Winner or Guest is a minor in
his/her state of residence, the winner/Guest must be at all times accompanied by his/her parent or
legal guardian. Parents and legal guardians must complete all required paperwork, and agree to
be bound and responsible for all terms, restrictions and obligations in these Official Rules, on
their own behalf and on behalf of the Grand Prize winner or Guest, as applicable. In no event
will there be more people than one (1) winner and three (3) Guests for the Grand Prize.
Each Grand Prize winner and his/her Guests must depart from the same location and travel on the same itinerary. Some travel restrictions may apply. The Grand Prize does not include telephone charges, personal expenses, gratuities, incidental charges, or any other item not specifically described as included in these Official Rules. All expenses for any of the foregoing are the sole responsibility of the Grand Prize winner and Guests. The Grand Prize winner and Guests are responsible for any required travel documentation. Airline tickets are non-refundable/non-
transferable and are not valid for upgrades and/or frequent-flyer miles. The Sponsor and the Administrator reserve the right to structure travel routes and select hotels in their sole discretion. The Grand Prize winner and Guests are solely responsible for any charges and/or fees arising from changes they make to their travel itinerary.
The Concert tickets will not be mailed. Tickets must be picked up at the Concert venue Will Call,
and the Grand Prize winner and Guests must present a valid government-issued photo I.D. to
claim the tickets; if the Grand Prize winner or a Guest is a minor, his/her parent or guardian must
present a valid government-issued photo I.D. to the claim tickets. In the event that the Grand
Prize winner and/or a Guest engage in behavior that, as determined by the Sponsor in its sole
discretion, is obnoxious or threatening, illegal or intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any
other person, the Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the Grand Prize, in whole or in part, and
send the Grand Prize winner and/or the Guests home with no further compensation.
Approximate retail value (“APRV”) of each Grand Prize is $5,000, but the actual value of
each Grand Prize depends on the point of departure, airfare costs and costs of accommodations at
the time of reservation. Sponsor makes no representation that the Grand Prize can be sold or
traded at the stated value. If the Sponsor’s actual costs are less than the APRV, the Grand Prize
winner will not be entitled to the difference in cash or to any additional prizes. No substitution or
transfer of the Grand Prize or any portion thereof except at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. If any
portion of the Grand Prize becomes unavailable for any reason, the Sponsor reserves the right to
substitute that portion of the Grand Prize with another prize of comparable or greater value, or
with a cash equivalent. The Grand Prize winner will receive an IRS Form 1099 reflecting the
actual cost of the Grand Prize.
The Prizes are awarded “as is” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The Entrants acknowledge that the Sponsor has not made, and is not in any manner responsible or liable for, any warranty, representation, or guarantee, expressed or implied, in fact or in law, relating to this Sweepstakes or any prize, in whole or in part. The prize restrictions/conditions stated herein are not all-inclusive and the Grand Prize described above may be subject to additional restrictions/conditions.
6. GRAND PRIZE WINNER NOTIFICATION AND PRIZE AWARD:
Each potential Grand Prize winner will receive a prize notification from either Administrator or Sponsor via e-mail no later than two (2) business days after the Grand Prize winner has been selected, which will occur on or about July 2, 2015. Each potential Grand Prize winner will have forty-eight (48) hours from the time of the notification to respond and to provide to the Sponsor the potential Grand Prize winner’s and each Guest’s full name, home address, telephone number, and all other information as may be necessary for the Sponsor’s prize fulfillment, which may include, without limitation, satisfactory proof of age, identity and residency.
Each potential Grand Prize winner may be confirmed as the “winner” only after all of requested information and documents are completed and received by the Administrator or the Sponsor and after the potential winner’s eligibility is verified. To the extent permitted by law, the Sponsor reserves the right to perform a detailed background check on the potential Grand Prize winner and his/her Guests, of any and all records (including, without limitation civil and criminal court records and police reports), and, based on its results, may disqualify the Grand Prize winner and/or the Guests, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion. A potential Grand Prize winner who is disqualified for any reason will forfeit the entire Grand Prize and he/she and the Guests will not be entitled to any form of prize, award or compensation.
After each potential Grand Prize winner responds to the initial notification and he/she and the
Guests are verified and determined to be eligible to accept and participate in the Grand Prize, the
Administrator or the Sponsor will send to the potential Grand Prize winner a winner notification,
an affidavit of eligibility, winner and guest liability releases, and a parental consent, if applicable,
and an IRS W-9 Tax Form. All documents must be completed and returned to the Administrator, as indicated in the winner notification, no later than ten (10) business days of the date on the winner notification. If the potential Grand Prize winner does not respond to the Sponsor’s notification or subsequent communications within the set time period, if the potential winner is determined to be ineligible, if the notification or any subsequent communications are returned as undeliverable, or if the potential winner otherwise fails to fully comply with these Official Rules, he/she will forfeit the entire Grand Prize and he/she and the Guests will not be entitled to any form of prize, award or compensation.
The Sponsor is not responsible, and shall not be liable, for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful
efforts to notify the potential Grand Prize winner, or for any change in the potential winner’s e-
mail address, telephone number or Facebook account. If any of the attempted notifications or
communications are returned as undeliverable, if any of the information and/or documents
required by the Sponsor are not returned within the period of time set by the Sponsor, if the
potential winner cannot be verified, or if a potential winner is otherwise unable to accept the
Grand Prize as stated, the Grand Prize may be forfeited or an alternative winner may be selected
at random from all remaining eligible Entries, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion.
