Odds of winning are based upon the number of valid and eligible entries. Sponsor cannot accurately predict the number of eligible entries. The winner will be selected, as follows: Each eligible entry will be assigned a number. Each number will be placed into an on-line simulator/random number generator operated by Sponsor. A number will be selected by the generator and matched against Sponsor’s paperless billing customer and automatic billing customer lists for confirmation of the Winner’s eligibility (if applicable).
Each Winner will receive $250.00 in the form of an Amazon gift card. Prizes will be fulfilled within approximately 60 days of the prize being claimed and subject to compliance with these rules after the potential winners have been notified. The Winner is responsible for paying any taxes and fees associated with receipt or use of the prize. Any and all other costs or expenses associated with the prize shall be the Winner’s responsibility. The estimated aggregate retail value of the prizes is approximately $3000.00. Winner is subject to the terms and conditions applicable to Amazon gift cards.
(a) Winners will be contacted by telephone within approximately three (3) days after being selected.

Winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Failure to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules will result in the entrant’s disqualification, and forfeiture of his or her prize (if that entrant is a Winner). In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Prizes returned as undeliverable or otherwise not claimed within 14 days after transmission of final notification will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner.
