    The whole as such Instant Points Prizes are described at Section Rule 2.3 below.

    All Prizes must be accepted as awarded. No cash alternatives, substitution or transfers of any of the Prizes outlined above will be allowed. Once the Prizes have been awarded, the winner will have no further recourse against the Contest Sponsor. Petro-Point value will vary depending on the product for which it is redeemed.

    2.2 Grand Prize: There will be one (1) Grand Prize awarded by a random computer generated draw (See Rules 2.6 and 2.7). Such Grand Prize will be awarded as a one-time $75,000.00 credit to a Petro-Canada Payment Vehicle, including but not limited to a SuperPass credit account.

    The Prize must be accepted as awarded. No cash alternatives, substitution or transfers of the Grand Prize will be allowed. Once the Grand Prize has been awarded, the winner will have no further recourse against the Contest Sponsor.

    The value of the Grand Prize is based on an average annual gasoline purchase amount of one (1) x forty (40) litre fill up per week at one dollar and 44 cents ($1.44) per litre multiplied by fifty-two (52) weeks multiplied by twenty-five (25) years to total $75,000.00.

    2.3 Petro-Points Instant Points Prizes: The following points amounts will be awarded instantly via a random computer generated selection:
    • 2,000 Petro-Points
    • 15,000 Petro-Points
    After the selected Eligible Entrant has correctly answered, unaided, an arithmetical, skill-testing question they will be declared an Instant Points Prize Winner. Winners of an Instant Points Prize will automatically have the Petro-Points added to the Eligible Entrant’s account point balance, and will be immediately available for Petro-Points Reward redemption or Points Exchanges, subject to the terms and conditions of the Petro-Points program, including the Rewards Redemption Schedule. An Instant Points Prize cannot be substituted, transferred, redeemed for cash or used as a credit against any outstanding Petro-Canada Credit Card or work order balance.

    Winners of an Instant Points Prize must claim their Prize at a participatingPetro-Canada station.

    2.4 Unclaimed Petro-Points Instant Award Prizes: All Eligible Entrants who have been selected as potential winners of an Instant Points Prize (i.e., 2,000 or 15,000 Points Prizes), including, but not limited to, via Pay at the Pump, or at a Petro-Canada station that requires pre-payment, and have not answered the skill-testing question in order to claim the Prize, will continue to receive unclaimed Prize notification messages on future Petro-Points purchase transaction receipts, until 23:59 p.m., Mountain Time, Oct. 15, 2012. After this date, all Prizes not awarded will be null and void.

    2.5 Odds: The odds of being randomly selected for a potentially winning purchase transaction are:

    • Grand Prize — Free Gas For 25 Years: 1 in 25,281,172, based on estimated total eligible entries of 25,281,172 (estimation of 25,281,172 eligible Petro-Points purchases, plus eligible Mail-in and Manual Purchase entries for the Grand Prize completed during the seventy-seven (77) day period of the Contest). The actual odds of being selected depend on the actual number of eligible entries received.
    • 2,000 Petro-Points Points Prizes: On eligible Petro-Points purchases = 1 in 165, based on 25,281,172 estimated total eligible Petro-Points purchase transaction entries completed during the seventy-seven (77) day period of the Contest.
    • 15,000 Petro-Points Points Prizes: On eligible Petro-Points purchases = 1 in 1,487; based on 25,281,172 estimated total eligible Petro-Points purchase transaction entries completed during the seventy-seven (77) day period of the Contest.

    If the actual number of eligible purchase transactions is less than the estimated number of eligible purchase transactions, or if the computerized system does not award all prizes, Suncor will be entitled to not award the maximum number of prizes. The actual number of potentially winning purchase transactions issued will vary depending upon the actual number of eligible purchase transactions and eligible Mail-In entries, and the established Contest odds.

    2.5.1 “Winners every minute”. Calculation is based on:
    • A seventy-seven (77) day campaign which equals 110,880 minutes
      (1,440 minutes per day X 77 days).
    • 170,002 Instant Points Prizes divided by 110,800 minutes equals 1.534 prizes per minute.

    2.6 Grand Prize Draw: A draw for the Grand Prize will be made by a random computer-generated selection on Fri. Sept. 14, 2012, at 12:00 p.m. Mountain Time, or soon thereafter, at 2489 North Sheridan Way, Mississauga, Ontario, from all eligible entries registered during the Contest Period (“Prize Draw”). The selected entrant will be contacted by email, telephone or mail. At least three (3) attempts to contact the selected entrant by email, phone or mail will be made within the fourteen (14) days following the Prize Draw. If the Contest Sponsor is unable to contact the selected entrant within fourteen (14) days following the Prize Draw, another entrant will be randomly selected and the initial selected entrant will be disqualified, his/her right to the Grand Prize will be forfeited and that selected entrant will have no further recourse towards Contest Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.

    2.7 In order to win the Grand Prize, the selected entrant must first correctly answer a time limited, arithmetical, skill-testing question to be administered by telephone, and he or she will be required to sign and return a standard Declaration and Release form confirming compliance with the Contest Rules and Regulations, the Eligibility Requirements, if applicable, acceptance of the Grand Prize as awarded and releasing Contest Sponsor from all liability. Subject to Rule 2.2, no substitution for, or transfer of the Grand Prize, will be allowed. The selected entrant will have seven (7) days to return the Declaration and Release form upon receipt. If the selected entrant does not do so, another entrant will be randomly selected and the initial selected entrant will be disqualified, his/her right to the prize will be forfeited and that selected entrant will have no further recourse towards Contest Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.

    3. GENERAL RULES

    3.1 All Prize claims are subject to verification by Contest Sponsor and/or their designated representatives. Entries made with multiple addresses, under multiple identities, through the use of any device or artifice to enter multiple times or entries that are in excess of the permitted number of entries for the Contest Period are automatically void. All purchase transaction receipts obtained through unauthorized sources or which are illegible, mutilated, altered, reproduced, forged or irregular in any way, are automatically void. Contest Sponsor will be the sole and final reference source in validating Prize claims.

    3.2 If a dispute arises regarding who submitted an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the primary Petro-Points Member as identified in the Petro-Points database as provided at time
    of entry.

    3.3 Should an error or any defect (mechanical, electronic or otherwise) occur during the time of the Contest, resulting in the number of potentially winning purchase transactions exceeding the number of Prizes available in a Prize category during the Contest, the organizers reserve the right to suspend the awarding of the Prizes, wholly or partially, without prior notice. At that time, if Prizes to be awarded in that Prize category have not yet all been awarded, then the remaining Prizes will be awarded by random draw amongst all those who have claimed those Prizes after the date of suspension (as decided by Contest Sponsor) until the limit date (23:59 p.m., Mountain Time, Oct. 15, 2012), at which time the unclaimed Prizes become null and void. There is no limit on the number of Prizes which a Member can be awarded, except in the case of a system error or defect which selects winning purchase transactions contrary to the established odds. If, in so doing, an Eligible Entrant is awarded more than one (1) Prize, any Prize(s) that would be awarded to the Eligible Entrant, due to system error or defect, will be returned to the Prize pool(s), to be awarded as detailed above.

    3.4 Purchase transactions where payment is made at a participating Petro-Canada Pay at the Pump gas pump or at a Petro-Canada station that requires pre-payment, are eligible transactions in the Contest.
