Store prize

Once the Consumer Winner has been confirmed as a valid entrant/winner and has confirmed participation in the Envelope Pick in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, the Store where the Consumer Winner made their Qualifying Purchase (as nominated on the Consumer Winner's entry form at the time of entering) will win either $1,500 if they are registered on XchangeIT's client base at the time of being determined as a winner or $500 if they are not registered XchangeIT's client base at the time of being determined as a winner.
