3. Contest Entry and Selection of Winners
The Contest begins at 6:00 am Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) on Friday, November 20, 2020 and ends at 11:59 pm PST on Sunday, November 22, 2020 (“Contest Period”).
How the Contest Works
Entrants can add funds to their Square Card balance by linking a third-party debit card to their Square Card balance (“Add Money Transaction”).
During the Contest Period, Sponsor will give away a total of $50,000 U.S. dollars in prizes to winning Entrants (“Winners”).
To become a Winner, an Entrant must compete to execute an Add Money Transaction before other Entrants during the Contest Period. Commencing at the beginning of the Contest Period, Sponsor will match up to $250 U.S. dollars for a successful Add Money Transaction executed by each Entrant until Sponsor has successfully issued prizes totalling an aggregate prize amount of $50,000 U.S. dollars (the “Prize”). For example, during the Contest Period, if 1000 Entrants each successfully execute Add Money Transactions in the amount of $250 U.S. dollars, the first 200 Entrants shall be deemed Winners, and Sponsor shall issue a $250.00 U.S. dollars credit to each Winner’s Square Card balance ($250 matching Prize x first 200 Entrants = $50,000 U.S. dollars in total Prizes).
Each Winner shall be limited to one Prize (with a maximum value of $250 U.S. dollars) for one Add Money Transaction. Additional Add Money Transactions executed by a Winner will not count towards the Prize amount. For example, if a Winner executes three Add Money Transactions in the amounts of $50 U.S., $190, and $10, only the first Add Money Transaction would be eligible for a matching Prize (i.e. Sponsor rewarding a matching Prize on the first Add Money Transaction in the amount of $50).
Each Winner shall be limited to one Square account.
Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant if it determines, in its sole discretion, that such Entrant has attempted to circumvent any of the Official Rules or has otherwise attempted to gain an unfair advantage in the Contest.
4. Winner Selection Criteria
The number of Winners will depend on the number of Entrants and the amounts added through successful Add Money Transactions. Given the finite amount of Prizes available, Winners will be selected based upon the speed with which Entrants execute successful Add Money Transactions commencing from the beginning of the Contest Period.
Each Winner will receive a Prize amount that matches the amount such Winner added to their Square Card balance via a successful Add Money Transaction, provided, however, that no Prize amount shall exceed $250 U.S. dollars. For example, if a Winner executed a successful Add Money Transaction in the amount of 280 U.S. dollars, such Winner would be awarded a maximum Prize amount of $250 U.S. dollars.
Aggregate Value of all Prizes: $50,000 U.S. dollars.
6. Winner Notification
Winners shall be notified via email on Monday, November 23, 2020. Prizes shall be automatically credited to each Winner’s Square Card balance.
