HOW TO PARTICIPATE.

To participate in the Promotion, a Participant must complete the minimum number of Qualifying Sales of Qualifying Homes during the Promotion Term. A “Qualifying Home” is an ENERGY STAR with NEEM+ manufactured home, certified by Northwest Energy Works through the NEEM program. “Qualifying Sales” are sales of Qualifying Homes by eligible Participants to customers at an “Eligible Retail Location”. An “Eligible Retail Location” is a physical business premises in Idaho, Montana, Oregon or Washington that is owned and operated by an Eligible Retailer.

 

If a Participant completes enough Qualifying Sales during the Promotion Term to achieve the following sales thresholds below, they may be eligible to receive one of the following sales challenge prizes (“Prizes”) if inventory is available:

a.     One (1) Qualifying Home sold = one (1) NEEM+-branded jacket (one hundred [100] available)

b.     Two (2) Qualifying Homes sold = one (1) NEEM+-branded Yeti cooler (five [5] available)

c.      Five (5) Qualifying Homes sold = one (1) $1,500.00 Amazon gift card (two [2] available)

 

A Participant cannot earn more than one (1) of each type of Prize, and a Participant cannot earn more than three (3) Prizes in total. There is a limited inventory of Prizes, as specified above; Participants will only earn Prizes if the Prizes are still available at the time the Participant earns the Prize. Any Prizes earned by the Participant will be mailed or delivered to Participant within ninety (90) days of the Qualifying Sale that triggers earning the Prize is recorded. A Qualifying Sale is considered “recorded” when:

a.     The Participant sends a completed Home Sale Notification Form, available at https://www.neemhomes.com/salespromo, to NEEA’s Contractor by U.S. mail or via email at NEEA’s Contractor’s address listed in the “CONTACT” section below; and

b.     The order details for the Qualifying Home sold by Participant is entered by the factory producing the Qualified Home into the NEEM program certification database (“Database”). The Database records the date and assigns a sequential identification number to each home record entered by the factory, and the Database date and identification number fields will determine the order in which Qualified Sales are deemed complete and recorded.

Prizes will be awarded based upon the order that Qualified Homes are recorded in the Database.

 

NEEA may delay a Prize for the purposes of investigation. NEEA may also refuse to accept and process any transaction NEEA deems, in its sole discretion, to be fraudulent, suspicious, in violation of these Terms, or believes will impose potential liability on NEEA, its funders, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents. All of NEEA’s decisions are final and binding, including decisions as to whether a sale of a Qualifying home meets the criteria for a Qualifying Sale or whether a Prize should be awarded to a Participant.
