Eligibility: Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico who are 13 years of age or older as of the date of entry, except employees of Sponsor and its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotion agencies and the immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of each such employee. Sweepstakes is void where prohibited by law.
Drawing: One winner will be selected by our panel on or about 3:00 p.m. ET on December 30, 2013 and announced on The Mother List’s website. All decisions of the judges are final. Odds of winning will be determined by the number of eligible entries received. Prize consists of only those items specifically described as included in the prize. All fees, federal, state and other taxes, costs and expenses relating to the use, acceptance and possession of the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner.
Prize: One winner will receive an iPad Mini. Approximate Retail Value: $299.
Notification: Potential winner will be notified by e-mail and/or telephone. If a potential winner cannot be contacted within seven (7) days of notification, does not timely respond or if prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. Upon prize forfeiture, no payment or other compensation will be made to the original potential winner. Recipient of such notification (parent/legal guardian if potential winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) must sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, liability and publicity release within fourteen (14) days of acceptance or an alternate potential winner may be selected. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining entries. Also, because the approximate retail value of the prize is $600 or more, a Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number is required to be provided to Sponsor for issuance of a 1099 Form. In the event of noncompliance with any requirement, the non-complying potential winner will be disqualified.
