HOW TO ENTER
No purchase necessary. Visit the contest application located at www.facebook.com/petvalu during the Weekly Draw Period. To enter that week’s contest you must complete all required fields on the online registration form and vote for one of the two “SUMMER FUN THROWDOWN WITH KURGO” featured Canadian Destination options for that Weekly Draw Period. At the end of each Weekly Draw Period, one of the two destinations will have won the popular vote. The entrants who voted for the most popular destination of the two options for that Weekly Draw Period will then be entered into the random draw for the Prize. To be eligible to enter for that week’s draw, your entry must be received before the Weekly Draw Period expires. Each Weekly Draw Period will feature two (2) different Canadian destination options.
Any attempt by any participant to enter more than the allowed number of times (being once per Weekly Draw Period) by using multiple/different Facebook accounts, email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods, will disqualify that participant’s subsequent entries.
DETERMINING THE WINNER AND THE ODDS OF WINNING
1. At the end of each Weekly Draw Period, the two (2) destinations featured in the SUMMER FUN THROWDOWN WITH KURGO for that week will have their votes tallied and a winner of the two (2) destinations will be declared (the “Winning Destination”). In the event of a tie between the two (2) featured destinations, Pet Valu Canada Inc. shall administer a random draw in order to select one (1) Winning Destination. The entrants who did not vote for the Winning Destination will be removed from the prize draw pool and only those entrants who voted for the Winning Destination will be entered into that week’s draw. Each entrant who voted for the Winning Destination will receive an assigned number and a winner will be selected through a random number generator online tool. Odds of winning a Prize for a weekly draw depend on the total number of eligible entries received during that Weekly Draw Period who voted for that week’s Winning Destination.
- Once an entrant has been selected for a Prize, he/she (the “Selected Entrant”) will be contacted by email the following Tuesday. If the Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or does not respond within three (3) days after being contacted, or declines the Prize, then an alternate entrant from the pool of eligible entries will be randomly selected as the Selected Entrant. This process will be repeated until a Selected Entrant has been contacted and the Prize has been awarded in accordance with these Rules and Regulations or the Sponsors run out of eligible entries, whichever occurs first. Any incorrect contact information that prevents the Sponsors from being able to reach a potential winner may cause such Prize to be forfeited and Sponsors will then attempt to contact an alternate entrant. In order to be declared a winner, the Selected Entrant must correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question, and must otherwise comply with these Rules and Regulations. If a Selected Entrant is determined by the Sponsors, in the Sponsors’ sole discretion, to have failed to comply with these Rules and Regulations, the Selected Entrant will be disqualified from this Contest and all related entries shall be deemed null and void.
