OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

  • SPONSOR: Guitar Center Stores, Inc., 5795 Lindero Canyon Road, Westlake Village, CA 91362. “Sponsor and its agents” shall mean Guitar Center Stores, its advertising/promotional and/or fulfillment agencies and their respective parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries and their respective employees, officers, directors and agents.

 

  • ELIGIBILITY: Mike Mangini’s “The Grid” Sweepstakes ("Sweepstakes") is open to legal residents of the contiguous 48 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, who are 16 years of age or older as of date of entry. Void in Puerto Rico, Alaska, Hawaii, United States territories and possessions and wherever prohibited by law. Subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws. The Sweepstakes, and any website pages and advertisements or promotional materials relating thereto, are intended for viewing only within the United States. You are not authorized to participate in the Sweepstakes if you are not physically located within the United States at the time of entry. Officers, directors, employees and agents of Sponsor; Hudson Music, LLC; Warner, Electra, Atlantic Distributing Corporation; Avedis Zildjian Company; Shure, Incorporated; Remo, Inc.; Pearl Corporation; and their parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, and their advertising and promotional agencies, and their respective officers, directors and agents (collectively, the “Sweepstakes Entities”) and the immediate family members (spouse, siblings, parents, children and their respective spouses) and persons living in the same household of each are not eligible.
  • HOW TO ENTER: This Sweepstakes begins at 12:00:01 a.m. Pacific Time ("PT") on November 1, 2013 and ends at 11:59:59 p.m. PT November 30, 2013 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). You may enter the Sweepstakes only by online entry at guitarcenter.com ("Website"), fill out the online entry form, and submit it during the Sweepstakes Period. No other attempted method of entry will be accepted. One entry per person and per email address (“Entrant”). If more than one entry is submitted, only the first such entry submitted will be accepted.  Any intentional attempt by a participant to obtain more than the allowable entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, or any other methods will void all of that participant’s entries. Use of computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic, automatic, and other similar means to enter the Sweepstakes is prohibited and may result in the disqualification of the Entrant. Automated methods of online entry are prohibited. Sponsor will not verify or acknowledge receipt of entries. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an online entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the email account is registered. All entries submitted become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

By entering, entrants agree to comply with these Official Rules and represent that they meet all eligibility requirements. Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for lost, late, or misdirected entries not received by Sponsor in time for the drawing. Proof of entering information at any store does not constitute proof of delivery or receipt.

  • PRIZE DRAWING AND NOTIFICATION: “Potential Winners” will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries received on or about December 7, 2013, by Sponsor or its designee, the judge of the Sweepstakes, whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. Each Potential Winner will be notified by email and/or telephone (“Prize Notification") and must confirm by telephone within five (5) days of Prize Notification his/her full name and a mailing address ("Mailing Information"), where Sponsor can send an Affidavit of Eligibility, a W-9 tax form and Liability/Publicity Release (collectively, the "Sweepstakes Documents"). The mailing address must be a street address (no P.O. Boxes).  If a Potential Winner does not confirm the Mailing Information in response to the Prize Notification within five (5) days of Prize Notification, he/she will be disqualified and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected from all eligible entries received.  Once Sponsor receives a Potential Winner's Mailing Information, a set of Sweepstakes Documents will be sent to him/her via overnight mail. Each Potential Winner (or, in the event that the Potential Winner is an eligible minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) must sign and return the Sweepstakes Documents within five (5) days of the date of the Sweepstakes Documents are sent or he/she will forfeit the Prize and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected. If Potential Winner is an eligible minor, Sweepstakes Documents must be signed by Potential Winner’s parent or legal guardian. Sponsor will follow the same procedure to select Potential Winners (including any alternates) until all prizes are awarded. Provided that the Potential Winner has complied with these Official Rules and meets all of the eligibility requirements set forth herein, following Sponsor’s timely receipt of the signed Sweepstakes Documents, Sponsor shall declare the Potential Winner a winner (“Winner”) and award the Prize. Return of any Prize Notification or Sweepstakes Documents as undeliverable will result in disqualification, an alternate Potential Winner will be selected, time permitting, from all eligible entries received according to the process set forth above. Sponsor shall repeat the winner selection and notification process set forth in this Section until all the qualified Winners have been selected and all prizes have been awarded.
