    • Our Sweepstakes have been designed specifically to please you - our customer. We include the rules and operational dates of our Sweepstakes on every promotional mailing. Entry to the Sweepstakes is free and by invitation only. No purchase is required and every entry has the same chance of winning.

The final draw is held in the presence of an independent auditor/lawyer.

    • Every year, we come up with new prizes for you to win. We draw winning entries every 12 months for the main Sweepstakes, but hold special giveaways throughout the year that have been tailored to a particular offer. These extra prizes range from Hi-fi players to cars, or even CASH!
