Epinions June $500 Sweepstakes Giveaway
By participating in this Write-Off, you agree to these official rules:
1. ENTRY. You can enter the Write-Off in one of two ways. First, you can submit a review to Epinions.com between June 1, 2013 (12:01 AM Pacific time) and June 30, 2013 (11:59 PM Pacific time).
Your review must be submitted on a product or service in Epinions.com's database, excluding editorials, buying guides, comments about Epinions.com, member advice, and the writer's corner. At the time Epinions.com validates entries (some time shortly following the end of the submission period), your review must have an overall rating of at least "helpful". Express reviews are not eligible. Valid review entries written on Electronics, Home & Garden, and Sports & Outdoors products will qualify as two entries into the sweepstakes.
To complete the submission of your review as a sweepstakes entry, you must register the review before the end of the submission period. You need to individually register each review you want to count as an entry. Reviews that meet the above criteria, but are not properly registered will not be considered as entries.
Second, you can print the words "Epinions June $500 Sweepstakes Giveaway" and your name and address on a postcard and mail it to Epinions June $500 Sweepstakes Giveaway, Epinions.com, 8000 Marina Blvd., 5th floor, Brisbane, CA 94005. All mail-in entries must be postmarked by June 30, 2013 and received by July 7, 2013 to be eligible, and mail-in entries not on postcards (such as in envelopes) are invalid and will be discarded. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
2. DRAWING. Epinions.com will select winners by random drawing from all qualified entries. Odds of winning depend upon the total number of eligible entries.
Potential winners will be notified by email. If you are selected as a potential winner, your prize award is conditioned on Epinions.com receiving a complete and executed eligibility affidavit, liability release and publicity release from you within 14 days of mailing date; if Epinions.com does not receive those documents in that time period, irrespective of cause, you will no longer be eligible and an alternate winner will be selected.
3. PRIZES. Epinions.com will select 10 winners:
*First Place winner will receive $500 in Epinions Eroyalties.
*All other winners will receive $25 in Epinions Eroyalties.
