3. How To Enter. Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes.

On Air Entry: To enter, listen to the 99.5 KISS FM radio broadcast during the Sweepstakes

Period. Every day during the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor will announce the cue to call. When

you hear the announcement, call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 210-470-5477 and to try to be

the announced caller. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules,

the designated and announced number (#) person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line, as solely

determined by Sponsor, will become a finalist/ winner.

To qualify as a finalist/ winner, (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 designated and

announce number (#) person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 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 Sweepstakes announcement to determine the designated

number (#) 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 

2

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 designated number (#) 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/ winner opportunities awarded in this

Sweepstakes will be reduced accordingly. If a announced number (#) caller is ineligible, or fails

to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified and no

finalist/ winner 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.

Text Entry: In the case of a text based contest, 99.5 KISS FM will announce to text a designated

"key word" to the short code 38401. The announcement will also include how the winner(s) will be

picked either (a) randomly or (b) a specific numbered text message (example, text number 100

wins the contest). 99.5 KISS FM reserves the right to utilize "KISS" as a text based contest key

word. Texting "KISS" to 38401 will automatically join that phone number in the 99.5 KISS FM text

message database (99.5 KISS FM text database). When using "KISS" as a contest key word,

99.5 KISS FM reserves the right to pick a random winner from all who are active in the text

database including people who joined during previous contest episodes not only those who chose

to participate in the current/specific contest(s).

3

kind, including, without limitation, malfunctioning of any network, hardware or software, whether

provider or other organization responsible for assigning ISP addresses for the domain associated

All cash prizes will be issued in the form of a check from Cox Media Group. When cash is won,

is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed.

Winners will not receive difference between the actual retail value at the beginning of the

Sweepstakes and the actual retail value at the time of prize delivery.

If the prize involves a gift card, Gift card issuer terms and conditions may apply.

If the prize involves tickets to a sporting event, concert, expo, performance, or other limited-time

event, No refund or compensation will be paid in the event of the cancellation or delay of the

“Trip/Event”, or any portion thereof. Sponsor will not be liable if the Trip/Event, or any portion of it,

is cancelled or delayed. Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, attempt to reschedule for a future

trip/event. Trip/Event tickets are subject to certain terms and conditions as specified by issuer.

The terms and conditions of the Trip/Event tickets may govern if the Trip/Event is cancelled due

to weather, an act of God, an act of terrorism, civil disturbance or any other reason. Sponsor is

not responsible for, and will not replace, lost, mutilated, or stolen Trip/Event tickets, vouchers, or

certificates. Exact details, including seat locations, shall be determined in the sole discretion of

Sponsor.

Limit: One (1) prize per person, per household, per contest. A person may only enter using one

email address or one phone number.

Odds of becoming a Winner depend on the number of eligible participants who call to participate

during a particular call-in period and the order in which calls are received, eligible participants

who text to participate during a particular text-in period and the order in which the texts are

received, and/ or eligible participants who submit online entries to participate during a particular

online entry period and the number of entries received during that period.

When a text winner is selected, the owner of the phone number from which the text entry is sent

will be contacted and pending they meet all eligibility restrictions will be awarded the prize. Prizes

will not be awarded to a different person to whom the phone number does not belong to.

6. Winner Notification and Acceptance.

present a valid government-issued photo ID and give social security number.

Sponsor’s inability to reach a potential winner after a reasonable (as solely determined by

Sponsor) effort has been made, the failure of a potential winner to timely respond to a prize

notification, the return of any prize notification as undeliverable, and/or a potential winner’s failure

to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion,

result in the potential winner’s disqualification and the selection of a substitute winner by a

random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes

Period. Sponsor will conduct up to 2 alternate drawings, after which the prize will remain

unawarded.

A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL SPONSOR HAS

COMPLETED ITS VERIFICATION OF PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY.

A winner may waive the right to receive a prize. Prizes are non-assignable and nontransferable

and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions allowed by winner. Prizes and individual

components of prize packages are subject to availability. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute

prizes or components of prize packages with a prize or component of equal or greater value.

required to provide his/her valid Social Security Number to Sponsor for tax purposes and/or
