c.             Entrants are required to provide truthful information and Promoter will reject and delete any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent.  Promoter will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements, and Promoter will also delete any entry knowingly received from persons under the age of 13.




To participate in the Promotion, you may enter via the following method(s):


A.            VIA TELEPHONE – Entrants must listen to the Station weekdays beginning on June 18, 2018 and ending on July 20th, 2018 in the 9:00 am ET, 11:00 am ET, 1:00 pm ET, and 3:00 pm ET hours, however, on July 4th, 2018, the contest will not be played.  Upon hearing the cue to call, caller number 10 to the Station contest line at 865-656-7827 will play Food City Hi/Lo.  A sale priced product from the most recent Food City circular will be announced with a select price, and the 10th caller will need to guess if that product’s price using a Food City ValuCard is higher or lower than the price given on air.  If the listener guesses correctly, they win a $25 Food City Gift Card and are qualified for a chance to win one of the Grand Prizes (each such qualifier will be deemed an “On-Air Qualifier”).  If they guess incorrectly, they are not qualified for the Grand Prize and do not win a qualifying prize. The $25 Food City Gift Card is then added to the winning amount of the next contest for a $50 prize, then $75 prize, and so forth. Maximum amount awarded each day will be $100 in Food City Gift Cards.  If at the end of the day, a qualifier has not guessed correctly to win, the $100 in Food City Gift Cards prize will be forfeited, go unawarded and the next day’s contest will start again at $25.  Callers who do not win a qualifying prize are eligible to play the contest again after 48 hours has passed, but if they do win, they cannot win the contest again.  At the time of their call, entrants must provide all requested information, including, their first name and last name, complete address, city, state, zip code, email address, telephone number, and date of birth.  Use of any device to automate entry is prohibited.  The Promoter’s telephone system is the official time keeping device for the Promotion.  If caller 10 is deemed ineligible, the qualifying prize will not be rewarded and another qualifier will not be taken. 


Up to 96 On-Air Qualifiers will be selected.  On-Air Qualifiers will be notified of their winning at the time of their phone call.  On-Air Qualifiers must be present at the “Grand Prize Event,” which will be held on July 28, 2018 from 10 am ET to noon ET at the Food City Grocery Store at a location to be announced, to be eligible to win the Grand Prize.  Qualifiers who are not present at the Grand Prize Event will not be part of the Grand Prize drawing, and will forfeit their Qualifying Prize.    


B.            VIA ON-SITE AT GRAND PRIZE EVENT – To enter to be a qualifier on-site at the Grand Prize Event (an “On-Site Qualifier”), entrants must be present at the Grand Prize Event.  Entries will be accepted from 10 am to 11 am.  Entrants must legibly hand write first name and last name, complete address, city, state, zip code, telephone number (including area code), and date of birth on an official entry form (while supplies last) and place the completed entry form in the dedicated collection box.  P.O. Boxes are not permitted.   Entries submitted may not be acknowledged or returned.  Failure to provide all required information may result in disqualification.  One entry per person will be permitted, and you may not enter if you were an On-Air Qualifier.  Only one winner (and/or Qualifier) per household/family is permitted in the Promotion.   On-Site Qualifiers will not receive a Qualifying Prize; only On-Air Qualifiers will receive a Qualifying Prize.


Ten (10) additional Qualifiers (the “On-Site Qualifiers”) will be selected at approximately 11:01 am via a Station-conducted random drawing from all eligible entries received.  The Station reserves the right to select additional On-Site Qualifiers if any of the original On-Air Qualifiers did not check-in with Station personnel for the Grand Prize Event by 11 am.  The Station will announce the additional On-Site Qualifiers on-site immediately following the drawing.  The potential On-Site Qualifiers will have 15 seconds to present themselves to Station personnel following the initial announcement.  If a selected On-Site Qualifier is not present or fails to come forward within 15 seconds, another On-Site Qualifier will be chosen at random from among all eligible on-site entries remaining. (Collectively, On-Air Qualifiers and On-Site Qualifiers will be referred to as “Qualifiers.”) 


C.            GRAND PRIZE DETERMINATION – All On-Air Qualifiers must be present at the Grand Prize Event to claim their Qualifying Prize and be eligible to win the Grand Prize, and On-Air Qualifiers must check in at the Grand Prize Event by no later than 11 am ET.  Qualifiers who are not present at the Grand Prize Event will not be eligible to claim their Qualifying Prize and will not be part of the Grand Prize drawing. One Runner-up prize and Grand Prize winner will be selected from all Qualifiers who are present at the Grand Prize Event.  All On-Air Qualifiers must be registered with Station personnel by 11 am.  On-Air Qualifiers who register late will not be eligible to win the Grand Prize.  The Station will then begin to randomly select names of the Qualifiers present in a reverse drawing at 11:05 am.   Upon randomly selecting a name, the Station will discard the name of that Qualifier and continue to select names until there are only two Qualifiers left.  The Qualifier whose name is drawn second to last will win the Runner-up prize, and the last name left will win the Grand Prize.
