Greater Media Philadelphia and MetroPCS “Cold Hard Cash” Official Sweepstakes Rules


How to Enter for a Chance to Win

Enter by attending designated MetroPCS promotional appearances and events, and completing/submitting an onsite entry form at the location and during the hours of the appearance/event. MetroPCS Cold Hard Cash promotional appearances will occur between January 17, 2014 and March 23, 2014 (the sweepstakes period) in the Greater Philadelphia area. A list of appearances can be found at Appearance dates, times, and locations subject to change. The website will be kept up to date on an ongoing basis. There will be additional opportunities during the sweepstakes period to enter to win the Grand Prize only, as listed on the sweepstakes web page from time to time during the sweepstakes period. Limit one entry per person per appearance. Only one entry per person (total) will be considered for the Grand Prize drawing. Entering at multiple appearances does not increase chances of winning the Grand Prize.

At the conclusion of select promotional appearances (the “Major Events”), one (1) winner will be chosen at random, from all eligible entries received at that appearance, to win a Secondary Prize. Must be present when the winner is announced to be eligible to win. There will be twelve Major Events at which Secondary Prizes will be awarded (see below for list).

On or about March 24, 2014, one (1) Grand Prize winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries received at all promotional appearances and events during the sweepstakes period which were NOT selected to win a Secondary Prize. Secondary prize winners are not eligible to win the Grand Prize. Grand Prize winner will be notified by phone and must confirm acceptance of prize within five (5) business days or risk disqualification and selection of a new winner.

All sweepstakes entries will become the property of Greater Media Philadelphia (Station) and will not be acknowledged or returned.
