Within 40 days after the end of each Entry Period, Advantage FCU will conduct a random drawing of all valid Entries. For example, Advantage FCU will conduct the November 2016 drawing no later than January 9, 2017. Advantage FCU will draw a winner and an alternate winner for each Entry Period. All drawings and determinations of winners by Advantage FCU will be final.
Notification of Winners/ Alternate Winners:
Advantage FCU will notify the winner within 3 days of each drawing. The winner must claim the prize within 14 days from Advantage FCU’s first notification attempt. A winner’s failure to claim the prize within the timeframe will result in forfeiting the prize and Advantage FCU will attempt to notify the alternative winner. Any alternative winner must claim the prize within 14 days from Advantage FCU’s first notification attempt. An alternative winner’s failure to claim the prize within the timeframe will result in forfeiting the prize.
Prizes not claimed by either the winner or alternative winner will be fully forfeited. The forfeiting of an unclaimed prize will not impact the winners of any other Entry Period. For example, if the January 2017 prize is unclaimed and forfeited, the winners of the November 2016, December 2016 and February 2017 prizes will have no claim to the January 2017 (nor will any other entrant). If a prize is unclaimed and forfeited, Advantage FCU will donate the prize to a local non-profit organization.
Advantage FCU will report all prize winnings to the appropriate state and federal agencies as required by applicable law. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL TAXES AND ALL OTHER EXPENSES RELATING TO THE USE, ACCEPTANCE AND POSSESSION OF THE PRIZE ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH WINNER. By participating, entrants understand and agree that they may have tax obligations if they win a prize.
Odds of winning vary based on the number of entries each month. For example, if there are 1000 entries for the November 2016 prize your odds of winning that prize would be 1 out of 1000. However, due to the inability to forecast the number of entrants an accurate disclosure of the odds of winning each prize is not possible. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.
