  1. METHOD OF AWARDING PRIZES

On or about February 3, 2017 at approximately 1:00 pm ET in Surrey, British Columbia, the ten (10) Prize draws will be held and ten (10) potential winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries submitted and received in accordance with these Contest rules.

Selected Prize entrant will be contacted by email which matches the online entry form or the address used when creating an account on the 7-Eleven App on or before February 14, 2017 with further information on how to be confirmed as a winner and claim the Prize.  If a selected entrant cannot be reached, for whatever reason, by this date, another entrant may be randomly selected (from among the remaining eligible entries submitted and received in accordance with these Contest rules) at the sole and absolute discretion of the Contest Sponsor.

Before being declared a winner of the Prize, the selected entrant and/or his/her parent or legal guardian (in the case of a selected entrant who is a minor) must correctly answer, unaided, a mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by telephone at a pre-arranged mutually convenient time and complete, sign and return a Declaration and Release Form (and any other documents, as applicable) within ten (10) days of receipt (the “Prize Claim Date”).

Prize will be awarded, subject to these Contest rules, upon receipt of the properly completed and executed Declaration and Release Form, where applicable, and verification of Prize winner.
