Any legal resident of the United States (except CA, FL, HI, NY, RI, and VT) who is at least 18 years old may enter the Sweepstakes. Heads up, we may require you to verify your eligibility at any time to participate in the Sweepstakes, win, and/or receive a prize.

How do I enter?
There are 3 methods to enter the Sweepstakes during the Entry Period:

Each entry method has the same odds of winning. One entry per person and per email address. Incomplete entries are invalid. Proof of mailing is not proof that we received a mail-in entry. If you properly enter the Sweepstakes, then you are a “Participant.”
What are the prizes?
There are 10 prize packages (each a “Prize”; together, the “Prizes”) provided by participating vendors. The total retail value of each prize varies from $450 - $2200. Prizes are limited to in-store and in-stock merchandise at any Murdoch’s store location at the time a Prize is claimed (see below) and are not exchangeable or redeemable for cash. Taxes on prizes are the sole responsibility of the winner according to applicable law. Murdoch’s may substitute a prize of equal or greater value at our sole discretion. Decisions regarding prize selection and substitution are made in Murdoch's sole discretion and are final and binding on all Participants.
When and how are winners selected?
We will randomly draw the names of 10 winners from all valid entries on April 7, 2023. WINNERS ARE SELECTED AT RANDOM. THE ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES RECEIVED. Decisions regarding the drawing and the selection of winners are made at Murdoch's sole discretion and are final and binding on all Participants.
How does a winner claim a prize?
We will notify each of the 10 winners by the email provided upon entry. The notification email will contain instructions to receive the prize (“Prize Instructions”). Each Prize must be claimed at any Murdoch’s store during normal business hours. Each winner shall have 1 week (“Prize Period”) to claim their prize according to the Prize Instructions. If a winner does not respond as required by the Prize Instructions within the Prize Period, then the Prize is forever forfeited. Only the selected winner may claim the Prize.
Where can I see a list of winners for this Sweepstakes?
