3. RANDOM DRAWINGS - PRIZES - ODDS OF WINNING: On or about each business day following the close of an Entry Period, the Promotion Administrator, an independent judging organization, will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible entries received for that Entry Period to award one (1) prize per Entry Period, each consisting of a $100 VISA gift card (subject to its terms and conditions) and an item from the TLC store ranging in value from $15 to $50. The total value of each prize will range from $115 to $150 depending on the merchandise item awarded. Determining which merchandise item is given each day will be at the sole discretion of the Sponsor.

Potential winners will be notified by email, phone, postal mail and/or express mail at Sponsor's sole discretion. Inability to contact a potential winner or the return of any prize notification as undeliverable will result in the prize being forfeited, and an alternate winner will be selected at random from the remaining eligible entries. Return of any prize notification or prize as undeliverable may result in forfeiture of the prize, in Sponsor's sole discretion.

No prize transfer or cash redemption permitted. No prize substitution, in whole or in part, except by Sponsor due to prize unavailability, safety or security considerations, or any other reason as solely determined by Sponsor, in which case a prize of comparable or greater value will be awarded.
