Can anyone please help with my interpretation of Terms & Conditions for the competitions in these mags?
I contacted the mags thru the website, but if course have heard nothing back.
My Mum likes to read these mags & do a few puzzles, but she’s not as switched on as she used to be, so hands the mag to me to finish the puzzles, and then put in the entry online.
Before I entered the answers from the May That’s Life Mega Monthly, I noticed, at the bottom of the entrant details:
“(Only one prize will be awarded per person (except for SA residents))”
Because this is a full page-in this instance, 45 puzzles-of answers, I was quite surprised at this statement, as it is really marketed as an ‘enter them all’ type scenario, and in my mind, and Mum’s, you had a chance at winning all of them.
On reading the full Terms & Conditions, I find what to me comes across as somewhat conflicting, or at the least, easily misunderstood.
This is the first point:
and clearly says only one prize will be awarded per person, per puzzle. Again, this reads to me like you have a shot at winning everything.
Then further down, this:
and says only one prize will be awarded per person.
The only way I can interpret this, and was the question I put to them, is:
I win $25 on one puzzle. Then further on, my name is drawn out as a winner of the car. Because I have already won $25, I then cannot have the car.
If that is correct, it kinda sucks, and I wonder how many other people have entered all the puzzles, hoping to win SOMETHING.
What’s your take??
