Other important information

Note that to enter the prize you must like our Page first, then go through the ‘Wildfire App’, which will only collect basic information off you. Also, you will need to provide some basic personal details to us to enlist yourself as an entrant.

If you win the prize, it is your responsibility to find your nearest local store and contact them beforehand to ensure they are available. You are also responsible for your own transport to and from the store. You strictly have five minutes to place a maximum of $1,000 worth of alcohol into a trolley.

The total will be tallied at the end of the five minutes. If your selection exceeds 10% more of the allocated prize value, then you will be penalised for 10% of your $1,000 prize – so choose wisely. The prize is valid until September 30, 2012.
