Selection of Winners: For each Entry Period potential winners will be selected in a random drawing by Administrator, from among all eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period, for a total of two (2) drawings for this Sweepstakes. Drawings will be conducted by Administrator, whose decisions will be final and binding in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Non-winning entries received for Entry Period 1 drawing will carry forward to subsequent Entry Period 2 drawing. The potential prize winners will be notified by Administrator via telephone, email and/or mail (method selected in Administrator’s sole and absolute discretion). Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winners will be declared the official winners of the Sweepstakes. In the event that the potential winner is selected via a Card transaction, prize will be awarded to the primary account holder (as determined by the Mastercard FI’s account records and subject to said financial institution’s timely identification of the account holder) named on the account accessed by the Card used to make the entry and, in the event that a Mastercard small business card or Debit Mastercard small business card winning account is selected, prize will be awarded to the individual named on the Card that is used to transact the winning entry (as determined by the Mastercard FI’s account records and subject to said financial institution’s timely identification of the individual named on the applicable Card). If awarding of the prize is in conflict with the business’ written policy or not feasible after Sponsor’s good faith effort to obtain account holder contact information from the applicable Mastercard FI, prize will be forfeited and an alternate potential winner may be selected randomly from among all remaining eligible entries. Odds of winning will depend on the total number of eligible entries received for each applicable Entry Period.
