ALL NON-WINNING ELIGIBLE ENTRIES FROM THE PREVIOUS ENTRY PERIOD(S) WILL CARRY OVER TO SUBSEQUENT ENTRY PERIOD DRAWINGS.

HOW TO ENTER: There are two (2) ways to enter the Sweepstakes.
  1. New Auto Pay Customers: Entrants who are new or existing Frontier Communication customers during the Sweepstakes Period may receive one (1) entry by enrolling in Auto Pay. New and existing Frontier Communication customers may visit https://frontier.com/login (the “Website”) during the Sweepstakes Period. If you are an existing online customer, sign in and select “Sign Up for Auto Pay” from the My Payments menu. Otherwise, select “Create a Frontier ID”. Then, create your user profile by submitting all of the information requested. Once you have submitted your information, you can sign in and select “Sign Up for Auto Pay” from the My Payments menu. An Entrant will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes based on the date and time in which he/she signed up for Auto Pay.
  2. Alternate Method of Entry (“AMOE”): To enter the Sweepstakes without signing up for Auto Pay, you may enter by mail as follows: On a plain 3” x 5” card, legibly handprint or type your first name, last name, complete address, city, state, zip code, home phone number (including area code) date of birth, and email address (if any) and mail your completed 3” x 5” card to: “Frontier Auto Pay” Sweepstakes, PO Box 10278, Rochester, NY 14610. Each envelope shall equal one (1) entry. Limit of one (1) entry by mail per person. Entries must be postmarked and received by the dates outlined in the Entry Period Chart in the “ENTRY PERIODS” section in order to be eligible for that respective Entry Period and any subsequent Entry Periods. Multiple entries submitted by a single Entrant or in the same envelope are void. Entries submitted or completed by anyone other than the Entrant are void. No mechanical reproductions will be accepted. Sponsor will not verify receipt of entries for Entrants. All entries submitted become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, illegible, damaged or postage due AMOE Entries.
Regardless of the method used to enter the Sweepstakes, there is a limit of one (1) entry per Entrant. Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, telephone numbers, identities, and/or any other methods (including, but not limited to enrolling and un-enrolling in Auto Pay services for the purposes of obtaining additional entries), will void that Entrant’s entries and that Entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. In the event of uncertainty as to the identity of an Entrant entering, the Entrant will be disqualified.

DRAWINGS/ODDS OF WINNING:
Entry Period drawings: On or about the drawing dates outlined in the Entry Period Chart in the “ENTRY PERIODS” section of these Official Rules, one (1) Entry Period Prize Winner per Entry Period will be selected in a random drawing conducted under the supervision of the Independent Administrator, an independent judging organization, whose decisions are based on their sole discretion and interpretation of these Official Rules, and are final and binding in all respects. All non-winning eligible entries from the previous Entry Period drawings will carry over to subsequent Entry Period drawings.

Grand Prize drawing: On or about December 13, 2019, one (1) Grand Prize Winner will be selected from all eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period in a random drawing conducted under the supervision of the Independent Administrator, an independent judging organization, whose decisions are based on their sole discretion and interpretation of these Official Rules, and are final and binding in all respects.

PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: Limit of one (1) Entry Period Prize per Entrant during the Sweepstakes Period. Entry Period Prize Winners are eligible to win the Grand Prize.  Prizes cannot be substituted, assigned, transferred, or redeemed for cash; except at Sponsor’s sole discretion or as otherwise provided herein. Any gift card awarded is subject to any terms and conditions set forth on the gift card and issuer’s standard terms and conditions applicable thereto. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize with a prize of comparable or greater value if advertised Prize should become unavailable. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen Prizes. Prize Winners are solely responsible for any taxes on the Prize he/she has received, including but not limited to any and all federal, state and local taxes. No more than the stated number of Prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded.

NOTIFICATION/GRAND PRIZE CLAIM:  Potential Grand Prize Winner will be notified within two (2) business days of the Grand Prize drawing. Except where prohibited, the potential Grand Prize Winner must sign and return within five (5) business days of receipt, an affidavit of eligibility/liability/publicity release (the “Release”), and an IRS Form W-9 in order to claim the Grand Prize (collectively, the “Required Documents”). If the potential Grand Prize Winner fails to return the Required Documents within five (5) business days of receiving it, potential Grand Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the Grand Prize and another Grand Prize Winner will be selected at random from among the remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the entire Sweepstakes Period. Potential Grand Prize Winner must report income to the IRS. In the event it is deemed during the verification process that potential Grand Prize Winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the Grand Prize, potential Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified and another Grand Prize Winner will be selected as outlined above. Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements. The value associated with the Grand Prize is taxable as income and the Grand Prize Winner is solely responsible for any taxes, including, but not limited to all applicable federal, state, and local taxes that become due with respect to the value of the Grand Prize. The Sponsor must report the value of the Grand Prize to the Internal Revenue Service in the year the Grand Prize is received by the Grand Prize Winner and will be reported to the Grand Prize Winner and the Internal Revenue Service in the form of a 1099 form.

All Prize Winners consent to Sponsor’s use of their names, likenesses, biographical information, and voices in advertising worldwide without additional compensation (TN residents will not be required to sign a publicity release as a condition of winning a Prize).

All Entry Period Prizes will be shipped directly to the Entry Period Prize Winner via USPS within six (6) weeks from the date in which the Prize Winner is confirmed. In the event an Entry Period Prize is returned as undeliverable, the Entry Period Prize will be considered forfeited and an alternate Entry Period Prize Winner will be selected at random from amongst all remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the respective Entry Period and any prior Entry Periods.
