Purchases won't increase your chance of winning. You must enter a valid email address and it must be your own email address. Entering the same email address more than once does not increase your chance of winning. Entries become the property of Zappos IP, Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, "Zappos.com," also referred to as "we" or "us"). Entrants will receive email announcements and special offers from us, but may elect to opt-out during entry and always opt-out of emails later. Opting out of emails will not decrease your chances of winning. The Sweepstakes will run weekly. We reserve the right to change or cancel the Sweepstakes at any time, at our sole discretion. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and decisions of Zappos.com, which shall be final and binding in all respects.
- Drawings. Once every week, on Monday, we conduct a random drawing from all eligible entries. We announce the winner as soon as commercially reasonable thereafter. Our decisions are final. Your odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries we receive. We notify the potential weekly winner by email. If the email address is invalid, the notification cannot be delivered, or the potential winner declines the prize, we will not select another winner for that week. If a dispute arises over entitlement to a prize, the winner is the person to whom the email account was assigned by the appropriate agency, internet service provider, business, or organization. Each email address may win only once within a calendar year.
- Prizes. The weekly winner will receive a $100.00 Zappos.com e-certificate or coupon voucher. Approximate retail value of each weekly prize is $100.00. If the email address selected is invalid or a potential winner does not reply within five (5) days of notification, we will select another potential winner from eligible entries at random. Winners may be required to complete a declaration of eligibility and a publicity release before receiving the prize. Winners are responsible for paying all federal, state or local taxes and expenses associated with the prize, if any. Accepting the prize grants us permission to use the winner's name, city, state, and likeness for promotional purposes without compensation or notice to the extent permitted by law. No cash redemption or prize substitution allowed, except by Zappos.com, who reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute cash value or another prize it believes is of equal or greater value.
