Limit of one (1) entry per person during the Entry Period, regardless of method of entry.
All required information must be completed to enter and to be eligible to win.
Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Sponsor is not responsible for misdirected, late,
incomplete, illegible, undelivered, or lost entries, which will be disqualified, or any
unforeseen circumstances that may limit an individual’s ability to participate in the
Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void any and all entries
of an entrant that submits more than the stated maximum limit of entries by using
multiple/different addresses, identities, or any other methods, or who Sponsor believes
has attempted to tamper with, influence or impair the administration, security, fairness,
or proper play of this Sweepstakes. All entries become the property of the Sponsor and
will not be acknowledged or returned.
WINNER SELECTION: The odds of winning depend upon the total number of eligible
entries received during the Entry Period. One (1) potential Grand Prize winner (“Prize
Winner”) will be selected during a random drawing conducted on or about December 27,
2018, by the Administrator, an independent judging organization, whose decisions will
be final and binding with respect to all aspects of the Sweepstakes. The potential Prize
Winner will be notified via telephone and/or email within three (3) days after the
drawing date. Within ten (10) days of such notification, the potential Prize Winner must
complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and W9 tax form
provided, for tax reporting purposes. Return information is specified on the forms.
Failure to fully complete and return the Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release, and
W9 tax form within the required time period will result in the potential Prize Winner
forfeiting the prize. Non-compliance with any requirement or obligation, or return of any
prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an
alternate winner, time-permitting and solely at the Sponsor’s discretion. Sponsor will use
reasonable efforts to select an alternate winner but in the event one cannot be reasonably
determined, such prize will not be awarded. Sponsor reserves the right to verify identification
and eligibility of a potential Prize Winner before a prize will be awarded.
GRAND PRIZE: One (1) Grand Prize will be available to be awarded. The Grand Prize
winner will receive a $10,000 Home Makeover Package from the participating Aaron’s

consist of merchandise selected by the Prize Winner (up to $10,000 approximate retail value
(“ARV”)) at the specified Aaron’s retail location, and must be selected in a single order on
day agreed upon by the Prize Winner and the participating Aaron’s retail location. The
order must be completed by February 15, 2019 or it will be forfeited. Selected

Winner is responsible for removing any existing furniture and appliances prior to delivery
that will interfere with the placement of the new merchandise. Aaron’s will not move or
