9. THE PRIZE
a. Vacation Prize: One (1) Entrant will receive three (3) free consecutive nights at a hotel in South Florida. Winner must use the accommodations within one (1) year of the date the Prize was awarded. Vacation does not include meals, air fare, ground transportation, travel insurance, or any other expenses.
The hotel will be in or near one of the major South Florida cities (e.g., Miami, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Jupiter) or adjacent towns.
Sponsor will attempt to accommodate Winner’s preferred location, if requested. However, Sponsor will have the final decision and is not obligated in any way to choose a hotel or city requested by the Winner. All accommodations will be determined based on hotel room availability and Prize value limit.
b. Cash Prize Option ($250): Our primary desire is for the sweepstakes winner to visit South Florida. That way we can support our community and gather awesome testimonials. However, we realize that circumstances may prevent a winner from taking the trip.
We certainly don’t want the winner to be left empty handed. For this reason, we will allow the winner to claim the $250 cash prize option. This will apply to any winner who is unable to make the trip or simply chooses not to visit for any reason or no reason.
In this regard, immediately after the sweepstakes entrant is notified that they are a Prize winner, they will be asked if they want the Vacation Prize or the Cash Prize Option. They will have a maximum of fourteen (14) days after the selection date to notify the Sponsor, in writing, as to which Prize they will accept.
Once the fourteen (14) day decision period has ended, the Cash Prize Option will no longer be available at any other time. If the cash is declined during this period, or the winner fails to provide a decision, the winner must accept and abide by the rules pertaining to the Vacation Prize which are outlined in all prior and subsequent sections of this document.
c. Vacation Prize Value: The Prize is currently valued at a maximum of $575.00 USD, which only includes a hotel room, and standard room fees and taxes.
- NOTE: Upon checking-in to the hotel, the Prize Winner may be asked by the hotel to provide a credit card or cash deposit to cover any incidental charges that may arise, such as room service or parking. This will be the responsibility of the Prize Winner.
10. PRIZE RESTRICTIONS

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, SPONSOR SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURIES, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE, LEGAL IMPLICATIONS OR OTHER DAMAGES OR EXPENSES RESULTING FROM OR ARISING OUT OF ANY TRAVEL RELATED TO THE Prize OR ANY OTHER ASPECT OF GRAND/MONTHLY PRIZE WINNER’S OR GUEST’S ACCEPTANCE OR USE OF THE GRAND/MONTHLY PRIZE.
