The actual retail value may vary depending on variables.

ODDS OF WINNING: Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries received within the Entry Period for this Sweepstakes.

PRIZE DRAWING: A random drawing will be conducted from among all eligible Entries received during the Entry Period for the Sweepstakes. The prize drawing will be conducted by the Survey administrator within 15 calendar days after the Entry Period ends. Each entry will be assigned a random number.
