These Applied Underwriters, Inc. Official Contest Rules (“Official Contest Rules”) apply to each Promotional Sales Contest (the “Promotion”) held by Applied Underwriters, Inc. (“Company”) as listed on the Company’s Official Contest Schedule (the “Contest Schedule”). Rewards apply to SolutionOne® quotes and deals only.
For each Promotion, beginning at 12:00 AM PDT on the Promotion Start Date, as listed on the Contest Schedule, through 11:59 PM PDT on the Promotion End Date, also listed on the Contest Schedule (the “Promotion Period”), submit via email or fax new business submissions with an effective date within the Quotation Effective Period, as listed on the Contest Schedule, to the Company for SolutionOne®. Only complete bona fide submissions, as determined exclusively by the Company in its absolute sole discretion, will be valid. For rewards requiring deals to be closed, the deals must be closed by the Promotion End Date in order to be considered valid.
Rewards are awarded to quote and deal counts by individual producer, not agency. Qualifying participants are limited to one prize per category. For those categories requiring a count of quotes per month, quotes must be sent by 11:59 PM PDT on the last day of each month during the Promotion Period. Each category is determined as listed on the Company’s Official Contest Rewards and Categories (“Official Contest Rewards and Categories”). Qualifying participants can choose a specific category prize if they meet the category award standards, but only one prize per category will be awarded. The Official Contest Rewards and Categories shall govern if there is a conflict between it and any advertising material. Qualifying participants must be at least 21 years of age if an alcoholic beverage is chosen as a prize.
For rewards with options (size, color, right/left-handed, flavor, etc.), qualifying participants will work directly with their Company Sales Representative to determine a selection. All rewards will be shipped at the Company’s expense. Rewards will only ship to a physical address, no P.O. Box deliveries. For all alcoholic beverage shipments, someone 21 years of age or older must be available to sign for the shipment. No transfer, assignment or substitution of a prize is permitted. The Company reserves the right in its absolute sole discretion to substitute a prize for an item of equal or greater value in the event an advertised prize is unavailable. Allow up to six weeks for delivery after confirmation of the award.
The awarding of rewards shall be final, binding, and conclusively decided by the Company in all matters relating to this Promotion, including, without limitation, qualification for a prize.
