room, quad occupancy or two rooms, double occupancy); four (4) VIP tickets to the AGT Finale;
Sponsor to provide roundtrip ground transportation between destination airport/hotel and

determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion or prize will be forfeited. Trip must be booked at least
twenty-one (21) days prior to departure. Travel and accommodations are subject to availability
and blackout dates. Travel must be round trip. Sponsor will determine airline and flight itinerary
in its sole discretion. No refund or compensation will be made in the event of the cancellation or
delay of any flight. Travel is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules,
and those set forth by the Sponsor’s airline carrier of choice as detailed in the passenger ticket
contract. All expenses and incidental travel costs not expressly stated in the prize package
description above, including but not limited to, meals, incidentals, gratuities, other ground
transportation, passenger tariffs or duties, airline fees, surcharges, airport fees, service charges
or facility charges, personal charges at lodging, security fees, taxes or other expenses are the
responsibility solely of winner. Unless child or legal ward of winner, travel companion must be

one (1) travel companion must be winner’s parent/legal guardian. Travel companions must
execute liability/publicity releases prior to issuance of travel documents as a condition of
accompanying winner. Travel restrictions, conditions and limitations may apply. If in the judgment
of Sponsor air travel is not required due to winner’s proximity to prize location, ground
transportation will be substituted for round trip air travel at Sponsor’s sole discretion; winner will
receive no compensation for the difference in value. Sponsor will not replace any lost, mutilated,
or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates. Approximate retail value of Grand Prize is
$11,300.00. Actual value may vary based on airfare fluctuations, distance between departure and
destination, and the number of guests actually traveling with winner. Winner will not receive
difference between actual value and ARV, if any.
*If the trip portion of the prize cannot be awarded for any reason including Acts of God, acts of
terrorism, civil disturbances, work stoppage, COVID-19 or any other natural disaster outside
Sponsor’s control that may cause the cancellation or postponement of the AGT Finale, then
Sponsor will determine, in its discretion, a comparable virtual “VIP” experience or a cash
substitute ($9,252 only) will be awarded in lieu of the trip portion of the prize.
If attendance of the AGT Finale is deemed safe, as set forth above, but the winner declines in-
person attendance at the AGT Finale, then the winner will receive a cash substitute ($9,252 only).
Actual cash substitution will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
Odds of winning the Sweepstakes prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during
the Promotion Period through both entry methods combined (including bonus entries).
