Win Your Hallmark Keepsakes Wish List Sweepstakes Official Rules
No purchase necessary to enter or win. This is a game of chance. A purchase will not improve your chances of winning. Void where prohibited by law.
The Win Your Hallmark Keepsakes Wish List Sweepstakes (“the Promotion”) begins at 12:01 a.m. Central Time (“CT”) on April 15, 2021 and ends at 11:59 p.m. CT on May 15, 2021. The Administrator’s computer is the Promotion’s official clock.
The Promotion is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years of age at the time of entry. Employees and their immediate families of Hallmark Gold Crown stores or of Hallmark Cards, Incorporated, its retail accounts, affiliates and agencies, are not eligible to enter or win. Void where prohibited by law. Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws.
HOW TO ENTER
By submitting a completed Hallmark Keepsakes Wish List at the webpage(s) on Hallmark.com which refers to the Promotion and contains the submission process, including supplying any identifying information required there, you are automatically entered to win. Submission by an entrant of a wish list does not constitute a purchase order or offer by the entrant to purchase any or all of the listed ornaments.
Limit one (1) entry per person. No entrant is eligible to be drawn as a potential winner more than once during the Promotion.
On five occasions during the Promotion, one potential winner will be selected at random from all submissions received to date. Those five drawings will occur on or about 9:00 a.m. CT on April 22, April 29, May 6, May 13, and May 16, respectively. Each potential winner will be notified by e-mail on or about the day following the drawing. If the potential winner does not respond within forty-eight (48) hours of the sending of the notification, if the attempted notification is returned as undeliverable, if the potential winner cannot be verified or found, or if the potential winner is otherwise unable to accept the prize as stated, that entry will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be chosen at random from the remaining entries. A potential winner will become a winner upon the occurrence of both (a) verification of the entrant’s compliance with the Official Rules, including entrant’s execution and return to Administrator of a form supplied by Administrator in which the potential winner confirms compliance with, and agreement to, the rules of the Promotion, and (b) verification of the potential winner’s eligibility (as set forth above) by, at a minimum, execution of a form supplied by Administrator in which the potential winner attests to such facts. Sponsor (or Administrator on Sponsor’s behalf) reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify an entry for what Sponsor reasonably concludes constitutes non-compliance by entrant with these Official Rules.
After notification by Administrator to an entrant that verification has been completed and therefore that person is now a winner, the ornaments listed in the winner’s Wish List will be shipped and/or fulfilled to the address provided when those ornaments become available to Administrator for retail distribution.
PRIZES AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE (“ARV”)
A. There will be five (5) winners total, drawn in the manner described in the previous section. An entrant may win only one time during the Promotion. The prize for each winner will be the ornaments contained on the wish list submitted by that entrant, subject to the limitation set forth in subpart “B” below.
B. The Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of each winner’s prize will depend on which ornaments that entrant listed on the wish list that they submitted, but not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) based on the suggested retail price of each ornament. Therefore, the total maximum retail value of the prizes is five thousand ($5,000). If the total retail value of the ornaments on an entrant’s list exceeds one thousand dollars, Sponsor shall, in its discretion, determine which of the ornaments, with a total value of one thousand dollars or less (but not less than nine hundred and fifty dollars ($950)), the entrant shall receive as their prize under this Promotion.
C. Ornaments will be sent to winner as they become available for sale in stores.
All federal, state, and local taxes on a prize are the sole responsibility of the winners. Prizes are non-transferable, and no substitution or cash equivalent is allowed except in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize with one of comparable or greater approximate retail value. The prize consists only of items specifically listed on the winner’s Hallmark Keepsakes Wish List. An entrant may not make any changes to the wish list that that entrant submitted, after being notified that the entry is a potential winner. The odds of winning a prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received prior to the drawing that results in that prize. The more of the five drawings that remain when an entry is submitted, the greater the odds of that entry becoming a winner.
The potential winners will be notified via email by Sponsor at the email address provided at the time of registration after the random drawing. Before being declared the prize winner, the potential prize winners will be required to execute a Certification of Eligibility, and Liability/Publicity Release (“Certification and Release”) which includes a tax acknowledgment. The potential prize winner must return a fully executed Certification and Release to the Sponsor within ten (10) calendar days from the date it is postmarked as being sent to the potential prize winners, or the prize may (in Sponsor’s sole discretion) be forfeited. If the potential prize winner is disqualified, is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, or declines to accept the prize, then, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, the forfeited Prize may be awarded to an alternate prize winner who is selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Upon verification of eligibility, Administrator will contact prize winner to arrange all Prize details.
Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winners as set forth above, but Sponsor is not responsible for any undelivered emails, including without limitation emails that are not received because of a winner’s privacy or spam filter settings which may divert any promotion email, including any winner notification email, to a spam or junk folder. The prize will only be awarded to a verified winner.
IF DEEMED BY SPONSOR TO BE LEGALLY NECESSARY, THE WINNER WILL BE ISSUED A FORM 1099 FOR TAX PURPOSES IN THE AMOUNT OF THE RETAIL VALUE OF THE PRIZE. THEREFORE, A POTENTIAL WINNER MUST SUBMIT TO SPONSOR HIS OR HER SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER OR TAXPAYER ID NUMBER, AS REQUIRED BY LAW, BEFORE THEY MAY BECOME A WINNER. ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL TAXES IMPOSED ON THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRIZE ARE SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNER.
