Big Screen for the Big Game Sweepstakes

Zillow® Big Screen for the Big Game Sweepstakes
Official Rules

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING THE SWEEPSTAKES.

Please read these Official Rules before entering the Zillow Big Screen for the Big Game Sweepstakes (the "Promotion"). By participating in the Promotion, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and represent that you satisfy all of the eligibility requirements below.

EligibilityPURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE ODDS OF WINNING.  PROMOTION VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.  The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States or District of Columbia, who are age 18 or older (or the age of majority in entrant's state of residence) and are a licensed real estate agent/ broker with a user account on Zillow.com as of the start of the Promotion Period, during the Promotion Period, and at the time that the winners are drawn.  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. Employees, directors, officers and contractors of Sponsor and Sponsor's advertising and promotion agencies, and their respective immediate family members (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and/or those living in the same household of each, are not eligible to win. The Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void where restricted or prohibited by law.

Promotion Period:  The Promotion begins at 12:00 a.m. (all times Pacific Time) on December 17, 2012, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on January 11, 2013 (the "Promotion Period").  Except as described in "How to Enter" below with respect to mail-in entries, all entries must be received during the Promotion Period to be eligible to win a prize.

How to Enter:  Maximum of one (1) entry into the Promotion per person, regardless of method of entry. You may enter the Promotion one of two ways:

Advertising Method:  If you are an agent for Century 21® Real Estate, you will be automatically entered into the Promotion if, during the Promotion Period, you purchase advertising on Zillow after contacting Zillow through one of the following channels: (a) a Zillow sales representative at 1-800-954-7189; (b) the landing page located at www.zillow.com/advertising/c21; or (c) via email at C21showcase@zillow.com.  Upon purchasing advertising from Zillow after contacting Zillow through one of the foregoing channels, you will receive one (1) entry into the Promotion.

Mail-In Method:  Alternatively, to enter the Promotion without purchasing advertising from Zillow, clearly hand-print your full name, Zillow.com user screen name, mailing address, e-mail address associated with your Zillow.com account, and daytime phone number on a 3" x 5" card, and mail that card in a hand-addressed envelope to Sponsor at: Big Screen for the Big Game Sweepstakes, Zillow, Inc., 1301 Second Avenue, Floor 31, Seattle, WA 98101, Attn: Jennifer Noseworthy.  Mail-in entries must be postmarked by January 11, 2013 and received by January 18, 2013 to be eligible.  You will receive one (1) entry for sending the 3" x 5" card.  

Entry Limits and Restrictions:  You are limited to a maximum of one (1) entry into the Promotion per entrant, regardless of method of entry.  In the event that you submit more than one (1) entry into the Promotion, all entries into the Promotion may be declared null and void and you may be disqualified from winning the prize, in Sponsor's sole discretion.  Any attempted form of participation in this Promotion other than as described herein is void. If it is discovered that an entrant has entered or attempted to enter the Promotion more than once using multiple e-mail addresses, Zillow.com accounts, Twitter accounts or multiple identities or other relevant accounts, all of that entrant's entries will be declared null and void and the entrant will not be eligible to win or receive any prize.

All entries and/or materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor is not responsible for any lost, late, undeliverable/undelivered, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage due mail or advertising entries. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify any entries that are inappropriate for any reason.  Except for purchase of advertising online as described above, use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the prize winner or entrant, entries online will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address connected with the account on Zillow.com through which the Promotion was entered.  "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. The potential winner may be required to show proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the winning entry.

Random Drawing: Ten potential winners will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries received to be held by January 25, 2013 at Sponsor's headquarters at the address listed below. The potential winners will be notified via the e-mail address connected with each potential winner's account on Zillow.com. Unless prohibited by law, each potential winner may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, liability release, publicity release, acceptance of these Official Rules, ("Affidavit"), tax forms, and any other reasonable documentation requested by Sponsor, all as a condition of being awarded a prize.  In the event that a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, a potential winner does not respond to the notification within seven (7) calendar days, or a potential winner fails to complete, sign and return the Affidavit and any other required documentation within seven (7) calendar days after the date such Affidavit and documentation is sent to the potential winner, then the prize may be forfeited, as determined in Sponsor's sole discretion.  In the event that a prize is forfeited, or a potential winner is otherwise disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the forfeited prize to an alternate winner selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only four (4) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize may, in Sponsor's sole discretion, remain un-awarded.  Prizes are not assignable or transferable, except to a surviving spouse.

Prizes; Odds:  Ten (10) winners will each receive their choice of one (1) of the following prizes:
(i)    A gift card to Best Buy® valued at Two Thousand Dollars ($2,000) and a gift card to Papa John's® valued at Five Hundred Dollars ($500);
OR
(ii)    A check in the amount of Two Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($2,500) made payable to the winner.

The approximate retail value ("ARV") of each prize is Two Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($2,500). Total ARV of all prizes:  Twenty Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000).  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value for any prize, in its sole discretion. The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.

Sponsor makes no representations about the availability of, or ability of any winner to use the prize to purchase, any merchandise depicted in any advertising related to the Promotion.

TAXES AND OTHER EXPENSES: EACH PRIZE WINNER WILL BE ISSUED A FORM 1099 FOR TAX PURPOSES IN THE AMOUNT OF THE ACTUAL RETAIL VALUE OF THE PRIZE AND MUST SUBMIT HIS OR HER SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, AS REQUIRED BY LAW.  ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL TAXES IMPOSED ON THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRIZE ARE SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH PRIZE WINNER.
