entry by uploading a photo of yourself with a Cutwater Product logo (“Bonus Entry” or

If the Bonus Entry contains additional people other than only the entrant, please note
that the one (1) person submitting the Bonus Entry will be considered the entrant and
only the entrant is eligible to win a prize. No other person in the Entry is eligible to
receive a prize. Neither Sponsor nor Administrator are liable for any disputes arising
from or related to the Sweepstakes in this regard.

an entrant, and must comply with these Official Rules. The authorized account
subscriber is the natural person who is assigned the email address by the ISP or other
organization responsible for assigning email addresses. Potential winner may be
required to show proof of being the authorized account subscriber.
If entering with a mobile phone or other web-enabled device and using your wireless

commentary or material which Sponsor, in its sole discretion deems inappropriate.

by email or phone call message and will be required to respond to the notification within

that the winner is twenty-one (21) years of age or older, the potential winner will be
declared an official winner of the Sweepstakes. If Sponsor cannot verify that the

the potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be
randomly selected.

In the event of noncompliance within any stated time period, the prize will be forfeited
and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. Any alternate potential
winner selected will also be required to adhere to the time periods described herein.
Any prize notification or prize returned to the Sponsor or its agencies as undeliverable
will result in disqualification and the awarding of that prize to an alternate potential
winner. Sponsor is not responsible for suspended or discontinued Internet, wireless, or
land-line phone service or a change in an entrant’s email, phone number or mailing
address which may result in a potential winner not receiving initial prize notification or
his/her prize information. Note: Any communication between a potential winner and
Sponsor or its agencies regarding this Sweepstakes (e.g. phone calls, text messages,
chats, emails, etc.) may be recorded for quality assurance and training purposes.
6. PRIZE DETAILS: Prize (1 total): Winner will receive one (1) $500.00 digital prepaid
card. Terms and conditions received with the digital prepaid card apply. Approximate
Retail Value is $500.00. If winner cannot accept the prize as specified, prize will be
forfeited and will be awarded to an alternate winner. Any difference between stated
value and actual value will not be awarded.
Prizes are non-transferable and no cash equivalent or substitution of prize is offered,
except at the sole discretion of Sponsor. If a prize, or any portion thereof, cannot be
awarded for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize with another
prize of equal or greater value. Prize winner will be solely responsible for all federal,
state, and/or local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with the prizes they
receive, regardless of whether it, in whole or in part, is used.
If Sponsor so elects, potential winner may be required to submit to a confidential
background check. Such background check may include (but is not limited to)
investigation of criminal, sexual offenses, or other arrest or conviction record, and any
other factor deemed relevant by the Sponsor to help ensure that each potential winner
will not bring the Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect
unfavorably on the Sponsor. If requested, potential winner agrees to sign waiver forms
authorizing the release of personal and background information. In the event of
noncompliance, to be determined at the sole discretion of Sponsor, prize will be
forfeited and will be awarded to an alternate winner.
