BEN’S “Family Vacation A Day Giveaway” – Official Contest Rules

NO PURCHASE OR OTHER CONSIDERATION IS NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS CONTEST; PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE CHANCES OF WINNING.

How to Enter for a Chance to Win

The BEN-FM “BEN’s Family Vacation A Day Giveaway” Contest will run weekdays from Monday, March 28, 2016 through Friday, April 15, 2016.  Each weekday during the contest period, at approximately 8am, Noon, 2pm, and 4pm (ET), listen to 95.7 BEN FM to hear the Cue to text in the “Word of the Hour.”   When the Cue airs, text the specified Word of the Hour (as announced in the Cue to text) to the BEN-FM short code 95711.  Standard message and data rates may apply.  To enter without texting, go to http://www.vibescm.com/amoe to enter the short code, Word of the Hour, and all required contact information.  Each entrant who texts or enters online with the correct Word of the Hour within 15 minutes after the Cue to text airs will qualify for that day’s drawing for a chance to win a trip for four to Universal Orlando® Resort in Orlando, Florida.  One (1) Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random at the end of each contesting day from all qualifying text and online entries received that day.  Initially-selected Grand Prize winners are subject to confirmation of eligibility in accordance with these rules.

 

Entrants will only be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing on the day in which they entered.  Initially-selected Grand Prize winners will be notified via phone (at the number from which the winning text was received or the phone number provided online) at approximately 5pm on the day that they entered, and must confirm notification and acceptance of prize within three (3) business days or risk forfeiture of the Grand Prize and selection of a new winner.  Listeners may enter a maximum of one time, regardless of entry method, per Cue to text during each day of the contest period, for a maximum of four (4) total entries per day.  A maximum of one (1) Grand Prize will be awarded per person and household during the contest period.

 

Online listeners to the WBEN-FM (Station) web stream may experience a reception delay of up to one minute.  Listening to BEN-FM’s over-the-air broadcast is the best way to participate in the on-air portion of this contest.

If there is any dispute about the identity of an entrant, the registered user of the text message or internet account on the date of entry will be the recognized entrant.  All text participants acknowledge that text messages are distributed by third-party mobile network providers and BEN-FM (Station) cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery.  Participants acknowledge that, depending on the recipient’s mobile provider service, it may not be possible to transmit the message to the recipient successfully or in a timely manner.  Station assumes no responsibility for, and does not guarantee in any way, the availability or performance of any mobile, text or data service, including liability for transmission delays or delivery failures.

Station does not charge a fee for text entries.  It is each entrant’s responsibility to check with their individual carrier and mobile/data plan, as other charges may apply.  PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT TEXTS TO THE STATION MAY RESULT IN ONE OR MORE AUTOMATIC BOUNCE BACK MESSAGES, FOR WHICH PARTICIPANTS MAY INCUR A FEE FROM THEIR PROVIDER.  Station assumes no responsibility for charges incurred for text-messaging, including (without limitation) charges resulting from any bounce back messages or contest notices from the Station.

Only those text messages sent to the specific short code provided, at the time texting is solicited, will be eligible to win. Texts to the main Station phone number or any other phone number are not eligible.
