There are two ways to enter this Sweepstakes, a call-in entry method and online entry method (each described below in this section), and each method of entry has a different method of selecting Finalists. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes. You may enter via both methods of entry, however, limit one prize per person and per household regardless of method of entry.



To enter, the Green Day Trip Contest, listen to Sponsor’s 99.5 KISS FM radio broadcast (the “Show”) at approximately 9:00am, 1:00pm, and 5:00pm C.S.T. each weekday during each of the Green Day Trip Contest Periods. Every weekday during the Green Day Trip Contest Period at the previously announced designated play time Sponsor will play a prerecorded “call to action” “Idiot” quotes from Nard from the Billy Madison Show telling you to call in now for your chance to win. When you hear the announcement, call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 210-470-5477 to try to be the 9th caller. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the 9th person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line, as solely determined by Sponsor, will become a Finalist. 


To qualify as a Finalist, (a) you must be listening to the Show at the time the announcement is broadcast; (b) you must be declared by Sponsor to be the 9th person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 210-470-5477; and (c) you must comply with all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules. Telephone calls will be taken by Sweepstakes operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Metallica Trip Contest announcement to determine the 9th caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Sweepstakes operators will be final and binding in all respects. 


Enter as often as you like, provided that automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and will result in disqualification.


Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering this Sweepstakes, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules. In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach the Sweepstakes Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during a call-in period of the Sweepstakes prior to accepting the 9th caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of Finalists opportunities awarded for the Green Day Trip Contest in this Sweepstakes will be reduced accordingly. If a 9th caller is ineligible, or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified and no Finalist will be selected during that call-in period.


Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes.
