Think Chair Giveaway Official Rules
February 4th through February 18, 2013
How To Enter:
Beginning February 4th, 2013, you can enter for a chance to win by registering on SmartFurniture.com. Beginning on that day, all new customer orders will be automatically registered* to win. No purchase is necessary and purchasing does not increase your chances of winning. Other things that do not increase your chances of winning - but we would also like to encourage - include: delivering hot meals to the elderly, leaving a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, and going to visit your family for the holidays. Submitting a new entry each day will increase your chances of winning (and maybe, if you believe in karma, taking food to the elderly will help). You may register once - and only once - per day. (Note: this is one entry per day per household. Special note: for all of you painfully-difficult-to-deal-with contest people who try to cheat, we have sole discretion to decide what "one entry per household" means, and reserve the right to change the rules to exclude you). Registration will be open from February 4th, 2013 until 11:59 P.M. (ET) on February 17, 2013. Note: calling every day to see if you have won does not increase your chances of winning.
*Only one registration per day will be included in the drawing, so if you use the form to register as well as place an order on SmartFurniture.com on the same day, only one registration will be counted. To be clear (for the lawyers and contest police), we are just registering our customers automatically because that is a nice thing to do. Folks don’t have to buy anything to register and win.
Here’s How We Will Award Prizes:
We'll read through all your awesome submissions, and will pick our first favorite story on Monday, February 11 and then pick another the following Monday, February 19, 2013. All non-winning entries will be automatically re-entered. However, only one prize will be awarded per household for the entire contest.
Who Can Win:
You must be a legal resident living in the 48 contiguous United States. (Sorry, friends in Alaska and Hawaii, Frank hates you and does not want you to have any fun. Don't take it personally, though - Frank is just like that.) You must be 18 years old or older. You must be a human being. You cannot be in prison or dead. You cannot be a Smart Furniture employee or a relative of a Smart Furniture employee, nor any of the people described below in the "official rules" (I think we should exclude lawyers from winning too). If you do win, you agree that we may share the news of your good fortune, as well as your name and picture with the world via any forum or media we can think of, including our site, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks. From time to time, we may also send you promotional emails about stuff you may be interested in. Prize winners must also send us a picture of their awesome prize after they receive it because we want to share that with the world too. We would also like to have a video of a victory dance or any spontaneous cheering and jumping which occurred upon learning of your good fortune, if available.
BY LAWYERS, FOR LAWYERS
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.
A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
