Limit one (1) entry per person and per email address. You must provide all required
information to be eligible to enter and win. All potential winners are subject to
verification before any prize will be awarded. If you are selected as a potential winner,
Sponsor reserves the right to request proof of the information you provide in the Survey

Sponsor and Sponsor’s agents, affiliates, subsidiaries, representatives or service

them of a product or Giveaway that Sponsor thinks may be of interest.

any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple and/or
different identities, forms, registrations, email addresses, logins, or any other methods
will void that participant’s entries, and that participant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s
discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the
email address used to enter the Giveaway will be deemed to be the entrant. The
“authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an
Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for
assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.
Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder
to the Sponsor or forfeit the prize. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false,

may be disqualified from the Giveaway at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. All
potential winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded. Normal

received. The potential winner will be notified by email on or about February 28, 2022.
Except where legally prohibited, each potential winner must sign and return, within
seven (7) days of being notified, a Declaration of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release
(the “Declaration”) in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be
contacted in person via email, telephone, and/or registered mail after the first attempt to
contact him/her, or if he/she fails to sign and return the Declaration or other required
document within the required time period (if applicable), or in the event that a potential
winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an
alternate winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible
entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which any remaining prizes
will remain un-awarded.
Verification of Potential Winners: ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO
VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN
ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE GIVEAWAY. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF
ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED
AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
5. Prize: One (1) prize will be awarded, consisting of a $5,000 credit on the
winner’s purchase contract at time of purchase applicable only toward the purchase of
an HVAC with Sears. Approximate retail value (“ARV”) of prize: five thousand dollars
and zero cents ($5,000.00). Total ARV of all prizes to be awarded: $5,000.00.
NOTE: Prize credit must be used within sixty (60) days of when Sponsor notifies

Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to conduct a credit check on the winner
and winner will be responsible for the difference between the total purchase price and
the prize credit amount.

stolen prizes. Prizes cannot be used in conjunction with any other Giveaway or offer.
6. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or
modify the Giveaway, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor

software malfunctions or damage to a user’s computer equipment (software or
hardware); technical failures; or other errors or malfunctions of any kind whether
