OVERVIEW:  The Promotion pertains only to the QVC Today’s Special Value® livestream show currently streamed live Monday through Friday on or about 10:30 am ET daily (“TSV Show”). Sponsor may, from time to time but without obligation, announce a daily sweepstakes during the TSV Show, where viewers may be provided an opportunity to enter for a chance to win that day’s TSV item(s) (“prize”) (each is a “Sweepstakes”). Each Sweepstakes is entirely separate, non-winning entries do not carry over into subsequent Sweepstakes, if any. If different than described herein, quantities and actual prizes available to be awarded may vary. Selected potential winner(s) will be announced during a participating TSV Show. IMPORTANT NOTICE: BY ENTERING, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SELECTED WINNERS MAY BE ANNOUNCED DURING THE TSV SHOW; BUT ARE NOT FINAL UNTIL VERIFIED AS FINAL BY SPONSOR. Sponsor may work in partnership with one or more of our promotion partners, manufacturers and/or retailers in connection with a Sweepstakes. The Promotion and each Sweepstakes will be governed by these official rules (the “Official Rules”), which will generally apply and are incorporated by this reference into every Sweepstakes, and any Sweepstakes specific terms such as prize quantities/details, time periods or instructions that vary from these general Official Rules etc., will be communicated in connection with the particular TSV Show Sweepstakes (“Specific Terms”). The Specific Terms are incorporated herein, will supplement and be in addition to these Official Rules. For ease of reference, where applicable, all Sweepstakes and related Specific Terms and activities are referred to collectively herein as the “Promotion”. The Specific Terms will be communicated in connection with each specific Sweepstakes, through a call-to-action communicated during the TSV Show (“Sweepstakes CTA”). Usually, the Official Rules and the Specific Terms work together (collectively the “Rules”), but occasionally, Sponsor may need to adjust some of these Official Rules for a particular Sweepstakes and in such case those specific changes will be stated in connection with a Sweepstakes in the Specific Terms.

The Sweepstakes Entries will not be accepted once the opportunity to enter the Sweepstakes is no longer available during that TSV Show because the entry form has been taken down. Eastern time will be the applicable time zone for the Promotion.

There is no purchase of any TSV item required to enter or win. Any and all information, materials and content submitted become part of an Entry and are governed by the Rules. Limit one (1) Entry per person per Sweepstakes. Any Entry that does not (in Sponsor’s sole discretion) appear to be accurate, truthful, compliant, submitted in good-faith, or that fails to follow all steps and include all requirements and information required may be disqualified.  

 

ENTRY SPECIFICS: Entry for each Sweepstakes must be timely received by Sponsor. Sponsor has the right to verify Participants’ eligibility and compliance with the Rules and, on the basis of its investigation, to disqualify any Entry/Participant at any time and require immediate prize return if applicable.  Entries may only be submitted by an individual; group or commercial submissions are not permissible.  Incomplete, invalid, unsuitable, or otherwise non-compliant Entries (as determined in Sponsor’s absolute discretion) will not be eligible. If, upon review, Sponsor (or its authorized representative) is unable to determine that an Entry and/or Participant is eligible, compliant, or reasonably suspects that it/he/she is not eligible or compliant in whole or in part, the Entry as a whole may be disqualified. Proof that an Entry was uploaded does not constitute proof or evidence that it was received within the Entry Period or eligible for a Sweepstakes. Entries will not be acknowledged or returned. Entries submitted via any other entry method than stated in the Sweepstakes CTA will not be accepted. Participants may not (whether apparent or suspected) enter through a sweepstakes/contest club or exchange site (or similar method, whether or not paid), with multiple or false identities, accounts, handles, IP addresses, or devices, or use multiple e-mail and/or street addresses, or use any other device or artifice to enter or participate. Engaging directly or indirectly in any (apparent or suspected) artifice, cheating, fraud, spamming, phishing, harassment, on-line clubs (or similar methods), exchange sites, bot/robotic, automatic, macro, programmed or like participation methods as determined in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, will void all such Entries, and disqualify any Participant suspected of using/benefitting from such methods.

 

Without limiting the foregoing, an Entry will be disqualified if Sponsor believes the Entry is not in the spirit of the Promotion, is not compliant herewith, or awarding a prize to any person may have a detrimental impact on Sponsor, the Promotion, or any of Sponsor’s brands, products or services or those of its Promotion Entities and/or partners. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a Participant, the authorized account holder of the email account used in connection with the Entry will be deemed to be the Participant, provided eligible.

Any trademarks, logos, brand names, venues, sponsorships or any other intellectual property appearing in any way in connection with the Promotion, a Sweepstakes, prizing, or any Entry are the property of their respective owners, which are not sponsors or affiliated with this Promotion in any way.

 

RANDOM DRAWING/ODDS/WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: It is anticipated that one (1) potential winner will be selected in a random drawing (“selected winner”) conducted by Sponsor (or its authorized representative) after the end of the Sweepstakes Entry Period but during the TSV Show from among all eligible Entries received for that respective Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for the applicable Sweepstakes. Non-winning Entries will not carry over into subsequent Entry Periods or Sweepstakes. A selected winner will be announced towards the end of the TSV Show (using their first name, last initial and state, i.e. “Joe G. from PA”) and asked to check their email inbox for a message from Sponsor.  In the event there is more than one Participant with the same announced identifiers, only the Participant who receives an email prize notice from Sponsor as provided above is deemed a selected winner. The selected winner will then have the time stated in the email to provide information or follow the instructions communicated by Sponsor. Any selected winner announced on the TSV Show or who receives an email prize notification is not a final winner and has not yet won at that point; winning status and prize award are subject to verification and compliance, and once determined a winner will be given instructions to claim their prize. If a selected winner cannot be reached with one attempt using the contact information (in Sponsor’s discretion) provided, declines or refuses the prize for any reason, fails to follow the instructions, fails to timely respond, or reply on or within the time specified by Sponsor in any notification, is non-compliant, or is found to be ineligible, they will forfeit the prize and an alternate selected winner may be randomly selected in Sponsor’s sole discretion (but alternate selected winner may not be announced during the TSV Show due to time constraints). Once notified, a selected winner will not be notified again. Promotion Entities shall have no liability for any communication and/or prize notification that is intercepted, not received, not delivered, misdirected dur to privacy settings or to spam or junk folders, not timely acted upon, or otherwise not responded to by a selected winner for any reason whatsoever, and the prize will be forfeited. After one additional unsuccessful attempt to award a prize to an alternate selected winner in any particular Sweepstakes, that prize will remain unawarded; there will not be a second-chance drawing.

 

Prize or prize notifications that are unawarded, unclaimed, undelivered, misdelivered, refused, or returned will not be re-awarded. Depending on the prize in a particular Sweepstakes, Participants understand and agree that potential winner(s) may be required to sign, have witnessed and return a Declaration of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release within the time specified by Sponsor, or else such prize will be forfeited.

 

PRIZES/Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): It is anticipated that there will be one (1) TSV prize for each Sweepstakes ranging in value up to $599. If different, prize(s) available to be awarded in a Sweepstakes will be as stated in the Sweepstakes CTA, including available prize quantities, denomination and approx. retail value. Prize award is subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and Specific Terms, and Declaration, if any. Prizes are anticipated to be the TSV item(s) of the day and vary in retail value but may consist of individual or bundled items, or other merchandise products. Any gift card, voucher or certificate issued as a prize if any is for promotional purposes only, may not be replaced by Sponsor if lost, misplaced, stolen, damaged or destroyed, and is subject to the terms and conditions of issuer. Prizes shipped within the U.S. only where USPS ships.  Limit one (1) prize per Participant, per Sweepstakes. Any difference between the stated ARV and actual value of a prize will not be awarded as cash or otherwise.  Any and all applicable local, state, and federal taxes and all expenses not specifically stated herein are solely the responsibility of a winner of a prize $600 or more, if applicable. Winners are advised to seek independent counsel regarding tax implications of their prize winning, if applicable.  Only the description and number of prizes stated is/are available to be awarded.  In no event will Promotion Entities be responsible to award more than the stated number of prizes, or prizes in different denominations than stated for the respective Sweepstakes. Prizes will be awarded only assuming sufficient eligible Entries are received for that particular Sweepstakes. If because of technical, typographical, mechanical, communication or other errors or for any other reason, there are more claims for a prize than prizes offered for a Sweepstakes, and only if considered equitable and feasible by Sponsor, a random drawing will be held among all eligible non-suspect claimants in such category to award such TSV prize for the respective Sweepstakes. Prizes cannot be assigned, transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted, except by Sponsor who may, at its sole discretion, substitute a prize, or any item therein with a prize or substitute item of equal or greater value. Prizes, and any element thereof, including any products received as a prize, may not be sold, resold, auctioned, bartered, or placed into any other unauthorized channels of distribution. Any prize pictured or communicated in connection with a Sweepstakes is for illustrative purposes only and may not be the actual prize awarded. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ALL VALID MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO A PRIZE, PRIZES IN THE PROMOTION ARE PROVIDED "AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
