1) Weekly Cash Prize Sweepstakes (“Weekly Sweepstakes”) – One Weekly Sweepstakes winner will be selected each week for the length of the Promotion Period. Each Weekly Sweepstakes prize winner will receive a $5,000 check. To be eligible for a Weekly Sweepstakes prize drawing, an entry must be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on the Sunday of the week (or 11:59p.m. ET on December 31, 2019 for the last Weekly Sweepstakes of the Promotion). One Weekly Sweepstakes winner will be selected by random drawing on the following Monday or next business day from among eligible entries for that Weekly Sweepstakes.

2) Monthly “This or That” Trip Sweepstakes (“Monthly Trip Sweepstakes”) – One winner will be selected each calendar month for the length of the Promotion Period. Each Monthly Trip Sweepstakes prize winner will receive a choice of one trip from a list of trips provided by Conrad’s. To be eligible for a Monthly Trip Sweepstakes prize drawing, an entry must be received by 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month.

Progressive Field Finalists will have the opportunity to go on the baseball field between innings during the applicable Conrad’s Car Giveaway Game for a chance to be selected to win a prize vehicle. Progressive Field Finalists must be in attendance during the applicable Conrad’s Car Giveaway Game to win a prize vehicle. One winner of a prize vehicle will be selected from the three (3) Progressive Field Finalists at each Conrad’s Car Giveaway Game.

Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each drawing in each Sweepstakes. Non-winning entries will roll over from one drawing to the next in each Sweepstakes, except that Progressive Field Finalists will not roll over from one drawing to the next. The Sponsors reserve the right to run other sweepstakes using similar names during this Promotion Period.

HOW TO ENTER: During the Promotion Period, visit www.conrads50.com (the “Website”) and follow the instructions provided to submit a completed online entry form to receive an entry (“Online Entry”). (Note that the Website referenced within these Official Rules may not be the only website (i.e., specific URLs) used to promote this Promotion. If the promotional ad you see in a magazine, or website or hyperlink that you follow online to enter this Promotion refers to these Official Rules, such website is considered a “Website” under this Promotion.) After submitting an Online Entry, there is an opportunity to receive one additional entry per week from the updated entry page by clicking into the social media link then sharing on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram) and having someone use that link to enter the Promotion (“Social Entry”). Sponsors will determine in their sole discretion who receives credit for a Social Entry. Entrants found to use multiple Twitter accounts to share on Twitter will be ineligible. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means or practices (other than Social Entries) or by any means that subvert the entry process will be void if discovered by Sponsors. All entries must be received by the end dates and times above to be eligible for the applicable Sweepstakes. All received entries become the property of Sponsors and will not be returned.

Sponsors and their administrator reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to: (i) verify any element of any entry, related materials or entrant’s eligibility; (ii) to request additional information; and (iii) to disqualify any entrant whose participation may subject the Promotion, Sponsors or Sponsors’ advertisers, clients, or customers to controversy, negative publicity, scorn, or ridicule. By entering this Promotion, you agree to provide any documentation or information deemed necessary by, and in a form acceptable to, Sponsors to satisfy any of the above requirements if asked by Sponsors to do so.

LIMIT: One Online Entry and one Social Entry per person per week ending every Sunday at 11:59 pm ET, using only one email address. The Social Entry will be recorded the week someone enters using the link—not when the link is posted. Entries received from any person or email address in excess of the stated weekly entry limitation will be void if discovered by Sponsors. You may only use one email address to enter this Promotion.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Sponsors will attempt to notify potential winners via email and telephone. Each potential winner must respond within five days of initial notification attempt. Potential winners will be required to show valid government-issued identification card and fill out an IRS W-9 form, and Sweepstakes Release of Liability/Publicity form, and must provide required documents within 10 days of date of notification. If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, Sponsors are unable to contact a potential winner, or if a potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, that prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsors’ discretion, an alternate winner may be selected for the applicable prize by random drawing from remaining eligible entries for that drawing. Each household can win only one prize throughout the entire Promotion. Once a household member has won one of the Sweepstakes, all household members from that household are ineligible for subsequent Sweepstakes drawings.
