HOW THE READER’S DIGEST 27TH SWEEPSTAKES WORKS

 

  1. The Sweepstakes is open to residents of Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Africa aged 18 years or older only who receive or access marketing communications via email, mail, telephone or online from Reader’s Digest (the “Promoter”) during the promotional period. These prize Draws are presented in conjunction with various product offers from the Promoter and its licensees or partners and open on 1 January 2013 and close at midnight local time of the participating countries on 31 December 2013. Employees of Reader's Digest and its agencies, its partners or licensees, and their immediate families up to the second degree of consanguinity or affinity, are not eligible to participate in this draw.
  2. Eligibility for entry to the prize Draws offered is dependent upon replying in accordance with the conditions and instructions in the accompanying promotional material. Multiple entries are permitted provided each entry is on an original Reader’s Digest entry form. No facsimiles or copies are permitted. In some cases where it will not be necessary to return an entry form to participate, specific mention will be made of that fact in the promotional material. When website or telephone entry is offered, entries may be submitted by following the instructions in the promotional material. Entries must be received by the Sweepstakes closing date. A specific deadline as instructed applies to certain prizes including the Super Bonus Prize and, based on relevant local postal guidelines, the Promoter allows one week for delivery and one week for return in addition to any deadline stated. The Promoter will accept no responsibility for entries which become lost or damaged, or delayed in transit. All eligible entries will qualify as finalists and have a fair and equal chance to win.
  3. All prizes are guaranteed to be awarded. Throughout the Sweepstakes, the Promoter will conduct up to 24 bonus increase offers. Bonus increase offers will only be sent to selected entrants. If an entrant receives a 'bonus increase' offer and responds to the material as directed, in the event that they are judged as the winner of the prize to which the 'bonus increase' offer applies, they will receive the set prize plus the bonus outlined in the material (which could be up to double the original prize value). The decision to increase any cash prize value and the amount of the increase will be totally at the discretion of the Promoter and will be indicated in the promotional material for the relevant prize Draw. If an increased prize value has been advertised to a winning entrant, the Promoter will award that entrant the increased prize value, as advertised. For all other activities a winning entry will receive the stated prize value without the increase. In the case of any unclaimed cash prize, only the original cash prize (i.e. the cash prize without any bonus increase) will be distributed.
  4. There shall be one (1) Super Grand Prize Winner and two hundred (200) Appreciation Prize Winners of a Citizen Watch worth $190. Prizes are not transferable.
