5. Winners Selection
Prize Winners will be chosen at random. Your odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received.
6. Winner Notification
The Prize Winners will be notified by receiving a direct message from Square to their email address associated with their Square account with a request for their full name and address (a “Winner Notification”). Square will also request that the Prize Winners complete and sign a Form W-9 for tax reporting purposes. Once the Prize Winner provides such information they will receive the sweepstakes prize in their Square Card balance.
If any Winner Notification or other Sweepstakes communication is rejected or returned as undeliverable, if a potential Winner cannot be reached after a reasonable attempt has been made by Sponsor (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), if a Winner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the applicable Prize, or if the potential Winner fails to respond to a Winner Notification and/or to sign and return the Affidavit (if required) within the time periods set forth herein, the Prize will be forfeited in Sponsor’s sole discretion and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting) based on the original method of winner selection in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor may only look to five (5) alternate winners for the applicable Prize, at which point the applicable Prize may be deemed unclaimed and Sponsor will have no further obligation with respect to such Prize. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate potential Winner. If legitimately claimed in compliance with these Official Rules, the Prize will be awarded. To claim a Prize, a Winner must follow the directions in his or her Winner Notification.
Please note that each Prize Winner will be responsible for all tax reporting and remittance obligations in connection with their receipt of the Prize.
Five (5) Entrants will win a prize of a cash amount matching the funds that they added to their Square Card balance during the Sweepstakes Period in a single transaction, provided however, that the prize amount shall not exceed US $1000.00 (the “Prize”). Note that Square will only match the funds added to an Entrant’s Square Card balance for a single add-in transaction.
Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of all Prizes: up to US $5,000.
The Prize Winners receive their prize as a deposit into their Square Card balance after the Sweepstakes Period.
All Prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor is not responsible for and will not replace any lost or stolen Prize or any Prize that is undeliverable or does not reach the Prize Winner because of incorrect or changed contact information. Sponsor is not responsible for any inability of the Prize Winner to accept or use any Prize (or portion thereof) for any reason. No transfers or prize substitutions will be made, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. No more than the stated prizes will be awarded.
