The potential winner will be contacted on or about March 1, 2018 via the email address associated with his/her A&F Club account with detailed instructions on claiming the prize. The potential winner is subject to verification before any prize will be awarded. To verify his/her win, the potential winner will be required for tax purposes to sign an affidavit, submit a W-9 tax form, and to confirm several pieces of information, including, but not limited to his/her name (first/last), full mailing address, social security number, and that he/she agrees to these Rules.
