HOW IT WORKS: To enter, during the Promotion Period, eligible entrants must visit the Smart Stop Facebook and/or Instagram page (@smartstopselfstorage), “follow” @smartstopselfstorage, “like” the promotion post, and comment with which area of your home you’re trying to declutter in order to be eligible for a prize in this Promotion (an “Entry”). As an alternate means of entry (“AMOE”) for the Grand Prize, you may mail a 3-inch x 5-inch card on which you have legibly handwritten your first and last name, your complete mailing address (e.g. street, city, state, ZIP code), telephone number, date of birth, age, and email address to the Sponsor address set forth above (also an “Entry”). Your Entry, whether electronic or AMOE, constitutes acceptance of these official rules. Participants are solely responsible for Internet connectivity, software and/or hardware that may be required to submit an Entry. Incomplete and/or inaccurate entries are void. Any Entry that does not comply with the Entry requirements or otherwise with these Official Rules will be void, eliminated and not eligible for consideration. Limit one (1) Entry per person.
On or about January 27, 2023, One (1) grand prize winner and ten runners-up (the “Winners”) will be randomly selected from all eligible Entries submitted during the Promotion Period in accordance with these Official Rules. The Winner selection process and criteria shall be in the sole discretion of Sponsor whose decisions are final on matters related to this Promotion. The odds of winning are based on the number of eligible Entries received. Electronic Entries have the same odds of winning as write-in Entries.
Winner Notification. The Winners will be notified via Meta or Instagram direct message within seven (7) days of the date of the Winner selection or as soon thereafter as reasonably practicable. If a Winner that submits an AMOE is selected, Sponsor will contact the Winner by email, phone, or in writing. Each potential Winner will have seventy-two (72) hours to respond after being contacted. In the event that a potential Winner does not respond with the seventy-two (72) hour time frame, the next alternate will be contacted, and the seventy-two (72) hour clock will be restarted. In the event that a Winner does not qualify or respond within the seventy-two-hour window, the prize will not be awarded. The Winners must follow instructions given by Sponsor or designated agent within seven (7) days of receiving notification, if requested. Awarding any prize is subject to verification of each Winner's eligibility and full compliance with these Official Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize with a prize of equal or greater value. If (a) a Winner cannot be contacted as specified above; (b) any notification is returned as undeliverable; or (c) a potential winner is deemed ineligible for any other reason in Sponsor's sole discretion, the Winner will be disqualified and forfeit the prize and an alternate Winner may be selected in their place, at the Sponsor’s discretion.

SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY ENTRY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE ENTRY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED. The submission of a prize claim is solely the responsibility of the participant. All prizes are based on random computer-generated selection.
UNCLAIMED/UNREDEEMED PRIZES WILL NOT BE AWARDED. Odds of winning a prize depend on the total number of eligible plays and the time and date upon which they are entered. There is no guarantee that all prizes will be awarded.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if a prize listed is unavailable for any reason. Prize winners shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize.

If winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within seven (7) days of prize notification (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.
