If you do not meet any of these requirements, or any other eligibility requirements in these Official Rules, you are not eligible to win a prize, and Zillow, Inc. ("Sponsor") reserves the right not to award prizes to you.  Directors, officers, and employees of Sponsor and Sponsor's advertising and promotion agencies, and their respective immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of each, are not eligible to win. Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.

    Entry:  Visit the Zillow website, located at, and complete and submit a review form relating to your experience with a mortgage lender who has an account on Zillow. Note that reviews are subject to the Zillow Good Neighbor Policy and the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace Code of Conduct. If your review does not comply with these policies, or any other Zillow policies, Zillow may choose not to post your review, in which case you will not be entered into the Promotion. Alternatively, to enter without submitting a review on Zillow, clearly hand-print your full name, user screen name, mailing address, e-mail address, and daytime phone number on a 3" x 5" card, and mail that card in a hand-addressed envelope to Sponsor at: Zillow "2013 Lender Review " Sweepstakes, Zillow, Inc., 1301 Second Avenue, Floor 31, Seattle, WA 98101, Attn: Andrea Smolin. Mail-in entries must be postmarked no later than the last day of a Promotion Period and received within seven (7) days after the last day of such Promotion Period to be eligible during that Promotion Period. Ten (10) entries per person per Promotion Period. Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

    Prize:  One (1) winner from each Promotion Period will receive an Apple® iPad® (specific model and features selected at sole discretion of Sponsor) with an approximate estimated retail value of less than $500.00. Teleconnectivity not included. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in its sole discretion. Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries received.

    Random Drawing: A winner will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries to be held no later than two (2) weeks after the last day of each Promotion Period.  The winner will be notified by U.S. mail and/or email within four (4) weeks after the last day of the respective Promotion Period. To claim a prize, the winner should follow the directions in winner's notification.  The prize winner may be required to execute an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within seven (7) days following the date of attempted notification. The prize will be awarded within thirty (30) days after winner verification. If a prize notification is returned as undeliverable, it will result in disqualification, and the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner in a separate random drawing. Prizes are not assignable or transferable, except to a surviving spouse. 
    The prize is awarded "AS IS" and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose), except that the prize will be subject to its manufacturer's standard warranty (if any). No substitutions or exchanges (including for cash) of any prize will be permitted, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. The winner is responsible for all federal, state, local, sales and income taxes associated with receipt and/or use of any prize.

Unless prohibited by law, winner will be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, liability release, publicity release, tax forms, and other reasonable documentation provided by Sponsor before being awarded a prize.  If winner does not execute such documentation upon request, their prize will be forfeited and the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner.  The prize is guaranteed to be awarded.
