Winner and guest must possess all required, valid identification and travel authorizations in order to
travel. Winner and guest are responsible for any travel insurance (if desired), and for all trip expenses
not specified, including meals, tips, and entertainment. If winner and/or guest fails to possess all
required, valid identification and/or travel authorizations, the prize will be forfeited in its entirety. Trip
must be taken on dates specified by Sponsor. In the event the winner or winner’s guest engages in
behavior that (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) is obnoxious or threatening, illegal,
unsafe or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, Sponsor reserves the
right to terminate the trip or other applicable experience early, in whole or in part, and send the winner
and his/her guest home with no further compensation.
Grand Prize Winner and guest must comply with all security requirements and with Sponsor’s
instructions. All travel accommodations and events are subject to availability, change, and certain
restrictions. Sponsor will determine airline and flight itinerary in its sole discretion. Winner and guest
must travel together on the same itinerary. Airline tickets are non-refundable/non-transferable and are
not valid for upgrades and/or frequent flyer miles. All airline tickets are subject to flight variation,
pandemic, work stoppages, and schedule or route changes. For the avoidance of doubt, round-trip
coach class air travel is limited to one plane seat per traveler. Releasees (as defined in Section 5
below) are not liable for any missed prize events, missed opportunities or expenses incurred as a
consequence of flight cancellation/delay or ground transportation delay. Travel guest must execute a
liability/publicity release prior to issuance of travel documents, by the date specified in Sponsor (or its
designee’s) request, or such travel guest may be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Once a travel
guest is selected, he/she may not be substituted, except in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. If
the winner lives within 200 miles of the Grand Prize trip destination (as determined by Sponsor),
Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute ground transportation in lieu of airfare, and
any difference in value will not be awarded. Grand Prize winner or his/her guest must provide hotel with
a major credit card issued in one of their names to cover room security and incidental expenses (if any),
and the hotel may require such person to be age 21 or older. If winner is unable to accept prize as
stated, prize will be forfeited in its entirety and awarded to an alternate winner. Certain restriction and
blackout dates apply. No prize substitution except by Sponsor in its sole discretion, in which case a
prize of equal or greater value will be awarded.
Further, to help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity will not bring the
Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Promotion, as
determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, potential Grand Prize winner and his/her guest may be
required to submit to a confidential criminal background check as a condition of winning and receiving a
prize. Such background check may include without limitation, civil and criminal court records and police
reports. Any participant may be disqualified in the Sponsor’s sole discretion if: (1) he/she fails to reply or
to provide any required information or properly completed documents within the required time period (as
applicable); (b) he/she fails to comply with any of the terms of these Official Rules; (c) if any prize
notification is returned as undeliverable; or (d) if the results of his/her background check are deemed
unsatisfactory in Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Specific items for all prizes to be awarded (including colors, styles, and sizes, etc.) are to be determined
by Sponsor. The depiction of prizes in any advertising, promotional materials, or displays may not
reflect the actual prize items. Winners will be notified by mail, email, and/or telephone at Sponsor’s sole
discretion. Odds of winning will be determined by the number of eligible entries received for each
