These are the Official Rules for Heartland Credit Union’s (“HCU”) “Payments for a Year” Cash Giveaway Loan Promotion (the “Promotion”).
NO PURCHASE, ACCOUNT OPENING OR LOAN IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. MAKING A PURCHASE, OPENING AN ACCOUNT OR OBTAINING A LOAN WITH HCU WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR ODDS OF WINNING. PROMOTION IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
Terms and Conditions: By entering the Promotion, you fully and unconditionally agree to abide by and accept these Official Rules. Failure to comply with these Official Rules may result in your disqualification from the Promotion.
Eligibility: The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the United States, who, at the time of entering the Promotion are eighteen years of age or older. All entrants must be natural persons; no entries from business entities accepted. Employees and Board Members of HCU, its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising or promotional agencies, and their immediate family members (spouse or domestic partner, children and stepchildren) and/or those living in same household are not eligible to enter the Promotion. THIS PROMOTION IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW, RULE, REGULATION OR ORDINANCE.
Promotion Period: The Promotion begins on Saturday, February 1, 2015 at 12 a.m. Central Standard Time (CST) and ends on Wednesday, April 30, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. CST (the “Promotion Period”). Only one entry per person is allowed.
How to Enter: No purchase necessary to enter or win. There are two methods of entry. During the Promotion Period, you may enter by:
(1) Automatic Entry – HCU members (including eligible non-members who become members of HCU to obtain a vehicle loan), will automatically receive one Promotion entry when a vehicle loan is closed in your name at HCU during the Promotion Period. The automatic Promotion entry will be submitted in the name of the member/first-named borrower. Qualifying vehicle loans include those secured by a car, trucks, motorcycles, boats or motor homes. Vehicle loans closed at a dealership instead of an HCU branch will NOT receive an automatic entry into the drawing.
(2) Branch Entry – You will receive one Promotion entry when you complete an Official Alternative Entry Form which can be requested from any HCU branch. Branch entries must be received before 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30, 2015.
Prize: The prize offered will be the equivalent of 12 monthly payments of $300, or $3,600 total. The prize will be paid to the winner in one lump sum of $3,600. The winner may elect to apply the prize as an immediate principal reduction on a loan at HCU, or to receive a cashier’s check for the amount of the prize.
Winner Selection and Notification: From all entries received during the Promotion Period, one winner will be selected by random drawing held on or about Thursday, May 1, 2014. The odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received. The winner will be notified no later than Friday, May 2, 2015, via telephone.
Taxes: The prize is considered taxable income, and winner will be solely responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes. Winner will receive an IRS 1099 form reflecting the amount they receive as a prize.
Other Requirements: The winner may, at HCU’s discretion, be required to sign and return a declaration of eligibility, additional release of liability, and, where lawful, an additional publicity consent agreement. If a selected winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim a prize, or fails to return the completed and executed declaration and releases as required, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner.
