During the Sweepstakes Period, an eligible entrant must log on to their Instagram Account and become a follower of @totalbyverizon (if not already following). Entrant must then comment on the Sponsor’s Sweepstakes post and include #TotalUpgradeSweepstakes. Only comments with the required hashtag on the Sweepstakes post will receive an entry into this Sweepstakes. After commenting with the required information, entrant will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. Entries will not be judged and winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received. Entrant must follow @totalbyverizon during the Sweepstakes Period and for a period of thirty (30) days thereafter for prize notification purposes.
Limit: There is a limit of ten (10) entries per person, per day, during the Sweepstakes Period. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries using automated systems, multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, or any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and will result in disqualification.
Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of the Sponsor and receipt of entries will not be acknowledged or returned.
Winner selection will be conducted by Administrator, whose decisions, along with the decisions of Sponsor, will be final and binding in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select ten (10) potential winners from all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. The random drawings will occur on or around September 20, 2023.
TEN (10) PRIZES: Each prize includes a Total By Verizon unlimited plan for 6-months (awarded via a Prepaid card – valid for new or existing customers) and a phone case customized by Sponsor (“Prize”). There will be ten (10) Prizes awarded during the Sweepstakes Period. The ARV of each Prize is $350. The odds of winning a Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
Prizes offered and awarded are not redeemable for cash. Prize details not specified herein shall be determined solely by Sponsor. Prizes are non-transferable, and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any listed prize, or component thereof, for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize becomes unavailable for any reason. Prizes will be fulfilled within 4-6 weeks after winner verification.
Potential winners will be notified via Instagram Direct Message from @totalbyverizon (“Notification”), after the random drawing date with instructions on how to claim their prize. Winners must respond to Notification and provide the requested information to Administrator within three (3) business days of receiving the Notification. If any prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or if the potential winner fails to provide the required information within the stated time period, does not comply with these Official Rules, or if the potential prize winner cannot accept the prize as stated, the prize will be forfeited in its entirety. Sponsor may choose to award the prize to an alternate winner in a random drawing from among the remaining entries received. Administrator/Sponsor will make best efforts to award all prizes. If a prize remains unawarded after three (3) re-draws, the applicable prize will remain unawarded. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL TAXES IMPOSED ON THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRIZE ARE SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNER.

Any personally identifiable information collected during an entrant's participation in the Sweepstakes will be collected by Sponsor, Administrator or other Sponsor designee and used by Sponsor, its affiliates, designees, agents and marketers for purposes of the administration and fulfillment of the Sweepstakes as described in these Official Rules.
Except where prohibited, participation in this Sweepstakes constitutes each winner’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions and/or hometown and state for promotional purposes in any medium, worldwide, without further payment or consideration.
Released Parties are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, inaccurate, stolen, misdirected, undelivered, delayed, illegible, garbled or damaged entries, prize claims, email or mail; or for lost, interrupted or unavailable network, server, Internet Service Provider (ISP), website, or other connections, availability or accessibility or miscommunications or failed computer, satellite, telephone or cable transmissions, lines, or technical failure or jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected transmissions or computer hardware or software malfunctions, failures or difficulties, or other errors or difficulties of any kind whether human, mechanical, electronic, computer, network, typographical, printing or otherwise relating to or in connection with the Sweepstakes, including, without limitation, errors or difficulties which may occur in connection with the administration of the Sweepstakes, the processing of entries or prize claims, the announcement of the prize or in any Sweepstakes-related materials. Released Parties are not responsible for injury or damage to participants’ or to any other person’s computer related to or resulting from participating in this Sweepstakes or downloading materials from or use of the website. Administrator reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Administrator’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion. Administrator reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Administrator reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Administrator’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Neither Sponsor nor Administrator have made any warranty, representation or guarantee, expressed or implied, in fact or in law, with respect to any prize awarded, and specifically disclaim all such warranties, representations or guarantees, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
Any use of robotic, automatic, macro, programmed, third party or like methods to participate in the Sweepstakes will void any attempted participation effected by such methods and the disqualification of the individual utilizing the same. In the event of a dispute as to any registration or entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
The Released Parties are not responsible for: (a) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (c) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (d) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; or (e) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, provided that if it is not possible to award another entry due to discontinuance of the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.
If any provision of these Official Rules or any word, phrase, clause, sentence, or other portion thereof should be held unenforceable or invalid for any reason, then that provision or portion thereof shall be modified or deleted in such manner as to render the remaining provisions of these Official Rules valid and enforceable. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. No participant shall have the right to modify or amend these Official Rules. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision and such provision shall remain in full force and effect. In the event of any conflict with any Sweepstakes details contained in these Official Rules and Sweepstakes details contained in any promotional materials (including but not limited to point of sale, television and print advertising, promotional packaging and other promotional media), the details of the Sweepstakes as set forth in these Official Rules shall prevail.
