RANDOM DRAWINGS:  A random drawing to select Twenty (20) Weekly Period prize winners will be conducted on or about the drawing dates stated in the Entry & Drawing Periods Chart below (the “Chart”) from among all eligible entries received by the end date for that Weekly Period and the non-winning entries received during prior Weekly Periods. For purposes of clarity automatic survey entries will be included in the Weekly Drawing based on the date which the survey was completed, and mail-in entries will be included in the Weekly Drawing based on the post mark date on the mail-in entry. All drawings will be conducted by Administrator, who is an independent judging organization whose decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes.
