Share Your Experience with Cub Cadet ® Contest Official Rules (“Official Rules”)

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.

CONTEST SUMMARY:

Corporate Sponsor and Facilitator: MTD Products Company (“Sponsor”) is the corporate sponsor and facilitator of the Share Your Experience with Cub Cadet® Contest (“Contest”).  Cub Cadet® is a registered trademark of MTD Products Inc, used with permission by MTD Products Company in connection with the Share Your Experience with Cub Cadet® Contest.

Promotion Period: The Contest begins on March 5, 2014 @ 12:01 AM (EST) and ends on May 27, 2014 @ 11:59 PM (EST) (the “Promotion Period”) and consists of twelve (12) 7-day contests.  Each 7-day contest will consist of six submission days and a Draw Date (each collectively, an “Entry Period”).  Sponsor's computer is the official time-keeping device for the Contest and the Entry Periods.

How Winner Will Be Chosen: A total of twelve (12) winning submissions are selected during the Promotion Period (“Winners”), with one (1) selected on the last day of each Entry Period (the “Draw Date”).  Sponsor will attempt to notify Winners of their selection on or after the Draw Date. The twelve (12) Winners will be selected based on the Criteria set forth in the Contest Rules.

Number of Possible Entries per Participant: Three (3) entries per Entrant per Entry Period are permitted for a total of thirty-six (36) potential entries. Each Winner, however, may only be selected once during the Promotion Period of the Contest. Therefore, while each additional entry improves the chance of winning, entries submitted by an Entrant subsequent to their selection as a Winner will be disqualified from the Contest.

Once entered, Entrants may not delete, modify, change or alter their Entry.

3. How and When Winners will be chosen: Subject to any exceptions explained within these Official Rules, there is one (1) Winner chosen for each of the twelve (12) Entry Periods. Each of the twelve (12) Prize Packages will be awarded during the 24-hour (12:01 a.m.-11:59 p.m.) time period designated as the Draw Date for each Entry Period (see chart of dates above). The twelve (12) Winners for each Entry Period will be selected by Sponsor’s designated judges based on the following criteria: Originality (25%), Post Quality (25%), and Best Exemplifies the Test Drive Experience (50%) (collectively referred herein the “Criteria”). The entry with the highest overall score shall be selected as the Winner. In the event of more than one entry receiving the same highest overall score, the entry with the highest score in the “Best Exemplifies the Test Drive Experience” criterion, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, will be deemed the Winner.  In the event an Entrant is selected as a Winner on more than one Draw Date, the Entrant cannot accept a second Prize Package.

4. Winner Notification: If you are selected as a Winner, you will be notified by public reply (as defined by the terms of Entrant’s Facebook® membership) from Sponsor to Winner's comment on the public Facebook® page or the public tweet (as defined by the terms of Entrant’s Twitter® membership) for that Entry Period. If you do not respond to the public reply notification of your selection as a Winner within the twenty-four (24) hour Draw Date, an alternate Winner will be selected to receive the Prize.

All decisions of the Sponsor in all matters relating to the Contest and in selecting each Winner are final and binding on all Entrants.

5. Each Prize Package Includes: One (1) $150.00 Visa Gift Card (“Prize Package”).  The odds of winning are dependent upon the total number of eligible entries received for the Entry Period.

Sponsor is the provider of the Prize Packages to be awarded for each Entry Period. No Prize Package substitutions will be made unless the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, determines to do so. Sponsor reserves the right to independently substitute a Prize Package in whole or in part with another prize of comparable or greater value for any reason in its sole discretion. Prize Packages must be accepted as awarded. A total of twelve (12) Prize Packages will be awarded.

If a prize notification or any Prize Package is: 1) returned as non-deliverable, or 2) if the potential Prize Package recipient is not eligible or does not comply with these Official Rules, it will result in Prize Package forfeiture, and in such event an alternate Winner will NOT be selected in the Contest. Undelivered, returned, unclaimed or un-awarded Prize Package will not be re-awarded.

Prize Packages are subject to and made in compliance with Internal Revenue Service Regulations and any applicable federal and state laws and regulations.  Prizes may not be transferred or assigned in whole or in part.  Winners will be responsible for all applicable taxes, if any, (including but not limited to federal, state, local and/or income) on a Prize Package.

The Sponsor will determine if an entry meets the Contest requirements and otherwise complies with these Official Rules. This Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws. The Sponsor shall be responsible for ensuring the Contest complies with all laws in all jurisdictions where the Contest is offered. This Contest is void where prohibited by law.
