For details on how to win an instant win prize, see Rule 2 below.   

In the event the Sponsor discovers attempts at multiple entries by one person using multiple SCENE membership numbers, or by multiple different people using the same SCENE membership number, each entry will be discarded and the entrant disqualified at the sole discretion of Sponsor.

There are a total of five (5) Grand Prizes of 20,000 SCENE points, each to be given away during the Contest Period, one awarded every two weeks.  Approximate retail value of each Grand Prize is $200.  The Contest Period is divided into the five transaction windows which are set out below, each beginning at 12:01am EST on the first date of the transaction window and ending at 11:59pm EST on the last day of the transaction window.  A potential winner will be selected by a random on the draw date set out below from all eligible entries earned during each transaction window.

In order to qualify to for the Grand Prize draw, members must have registered for the Contest as set out in Rule 1 above. 

In the event that an eligible entrant makes a Qualifying Transaction or submits a valid mail-in entry prior to registering for the Contest, SCENE may contact that entrant at the email address on record for the entrant’s SCENE account to remind them that they must register for the Contest in order to be eligible to win a Grand Prize.  Entrants who receive such an email must complete the registration process on or before 11:59:59 PM EST on the day before the draw date for the relevant transaction window.  In the event that the entrant fails to register, he/she will not be eligible to win a Grand Prize for that transaction window. 

If the potential winner selected for any draw is not eligible to be a winner or fails to complete the verification process set out below, a new potential winner will be selected for that bi-weekly period from all eligible entries earned during the applicable transaction window. This process shall continue until an eligible entrant who has registered for the Contest is selected for each Grand Prize.

Entries received during each transaction window will not carry over into the next transaction window.  Odds of winning a Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible entries during each transaction window. 

Instant Win Prizes:

There are a total of twenty thousand (20,000) Instant Win Prizes of SCENE points to be given away during the Contest Period, distributed at approximately 2,000 Instant Win Prizes per week.

In the event that an eligible entrant who has made a Qualifying Transaction but has not registered for the Contest, is selected to win an Instant Win Prize, SCENE may contact the entrant at the email address on record for the entrant’s SCENE account to remind that they must register for the Contest in order to receive the Instant Win Prize.  Instant Win Prizes will not be awarded until the entrant registers for the Contest at scene.ca/showoff (scene.ca/entrezenscene in French). In order to receive the Instant Win Prize, entrants must register for the Contest before 11:59pm EST Tuesday January 31, 2017.  Time extensions will not be granted.

The odds of winning an Instant Win Prize will depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period, and the winner selection algorithm in effect at the time of the Qualifying Transaction.

Winning entries and Instant Win Prize distribution will be selected by a random, computer-generated algorithm during the Contest Period. A winning index of randomly generated integers will be created each week. All eligible entries will be assigned an incremental sequence number generated at the time of Qualifying Purchase. If this number matches the winning index, the member will be declared a potential winner of that Instant Win Prize.

Valid mail-in entries received by 4pm EST will be entered into a daily draw for an Instant Win Prize.  The Instant Win Prize to be awarded will be randomly selected.  In the event that no valid mail-in entries are received on any given day, the Instant Win Prize for the day(s) in question will go unawarded.  Mail-in entries will not carry over from day to day.  The final draw for an Instant Win Prize for mail-in entries will be February 7, 2017. 

Winners will be sent an email notification, using the email address entered by the member when registering for the Contest, within approximately 3 hours of the winning entry.  Winners will have until 11:59pm Friday, February 17, 2017 to claim their Instant Win Prize at scene.ca/showoff (scene.ca/entrezenscene in French).  Potential winners must follow instructions in the Instant Win Prize winning notification in order to receive their Instant Win Prize.  All potential winners are subject to verification before any Instant Win Prize will be awarded.  Instant Win Prize not claimed will go unawarded.
