    2. PRIZE

    2.1

    Prizes: All prizes will be awarded by a random computer generated draw. The Prize must be accepted as awarded. No cash alternatives, substitutions or transfers of the Prize will be allowed. The Prize winner shall not be entitled to convert the credit for cash. Only one (1) Prize per person can be won. For clarification, you cannot win the Grand Prize and a Secondary Prize.

    Each Prize will be awarded within four (4) to six (6) weeks of the Prize Draw.

    Once a Prize has been awarded, the winner will have no further recourse against the Contest Sponsor.

    Grand Prize:

    • There will be one (1) Grand Prize awarded of “Free Gas for 50 Years” (or as advertised in Quebec “$120,000 in Gas”); such prize will be a one-time credit of $120,640 to a single Petro-Canada SuperPass Card, or another payment vehicle as determined by Suncor (“Grand Prize”). The value of the Grand Prize is based on an average annual gasoline purchase amount of $2,412.80 per year (40 litres of gasoline per week, at a cost of $1.16 per litre, multiplied by 52 weeks) multiplied by fifty (50) years. The SuperPass Card awarded can only be used for fuel purchases (any category of gas or diesel) at participating Petro-Canada retail locations. In the event that the Grand Prize winner is not already a personal SuperPass Card holder, as the case may be, at the time of awarding the Prize, a card will be issued to the Prize winner for the purpose of fulfilling the Prize.

    Secondary Prizes:

    • There will be ten (10) Secondary Prizes awarded of “Free Gas for 1 Year” (or as advertised in Quebec “$2,400 in Gas”); such prizes will be a one-time credit of $2,412 in the form of Petro-Canada Gift Cards, or another payment vehicle as determined by Suncor. The value of this Prize is based on an average weekly gasoline purchase of 40 litres of gasoline per week, at a cost of $1.16 per litre, multiplied by 52 weeks..
    • There will be ten (10) Secondary Prizes awarded of “Free Gas for 6 months” (or as advertised in Quebec “$1,200 in Gas”); such prizes will be a one-time credit of $1,207 in the form of Petro-Canada Gift Cards, or another payment vehicle as determined by Suncor. The value of this Prize is based on an average weekly gasoline purchase of 40 litres of gasoline per week, at a cost of $1.16 per litre, multiplied by 26 weeks.

    2.2

    Contest Draw: All prizes will be awarded by a random computer generated draw (See Rules 2.3 through 2.6).

    2.3

    Odds: The odds of being randomly selected for the Grand Prize or a Secondary Prize (either referred to as “Prize”) depend on the actual number of eligible entries received.

    2.4

    Contest Prize Draw: A draw for each of the Prizes will be made by a random computer-generated selection on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, at noon Mountain Standard Time or soon thereafter, at 20440 Simcoe Street, Seagrave, ON, from all eligible entries registered during the applicable Contest Period (“Prize Draw”). The selected Eligible Entrant will be contacted by email, telephone or mail. At least three (3) attempts to contact the selected Eligible Entrant by email or phone or once by mail will be made. If the Contest Sponsor is unable to get in touch with and get a personal response from the selected Eligible Entrant within fourteen (14) days of the Prize Draw or if, within that same period, Contest Sponsor is unable to proceed to administer the skill testing question under the procedure provided for in section 2.5 hereafter, then another Eligible Entrant will be randomly selected for that Prize and the initial selected Eligible Entrant will be disqualified, his/her right to the Prize will be forfeited and that selected Eligible Entrant will have no further recourse towards Contest Sponsor or anyone else involved in the Contest.

    2.5

    In order to win a Prize, the selected Eligible 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, the Eligibility Requirements, if applicable, acceptance of a Prize as awarded, and releasing Contest Sponsor from all liability. No substitution for, or transfer of a Prize, will be allowed. The selected Eligible Entrant will have seven (7) days to return the Declaration and Release form upon receipt by registered mail or email requesting proof of delivery. If the selected Eligible Entrant does not do so, another entrant will be randomly selected for that Prize and the initial selected Eligible Entrant will be disqualified, his/her right to a Prize will be forfeited and that selected Eligible Entrant will have no further recourse towards Contest Sponsor or anyone involved in the Contest.

    2.6

    Unclaimed Contest Prize: In the event that a Prize remains unclaimed after the Contest Sponsor has made a reasonable effort (as outlined in Rules 2.4 and 2.5) to contact five (5) selected entrants, the Contest Sponsor reserves the right to abandon the process for awarding a Prize to the Eligible Entrants and, in such a case, at its sole discretion, may instead cancel the Prize or donate the Prize to a charitable organization of its choosing.
