How to Participate – Qualifying Customers and Qualifying Purchases:

To become eligible, a  “Qualifying Customer”, must make a “Qualifying Purchase”  of a “Qualifying Product” during the “Qualifying Period”.

Employees or agents of the RoomPlace® (“Sponsor”), or any of their affiliated companies, advertising agencies or promotion companies involved in this Conditional Rebate Offer (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and each of their immediate family members or those living in the same household of Sponsor or any of the Promotion Entities, as well as any of their successors or assigns, may not be Qualifying Customers and are ineligible to receive any Rebate Amount or Conditional Gift Card (each as defined below).

Qualifying Purchase

A “Qualifying Purchase” is a final, non-cancellable and non-returnable purchase of a Qualifying Product  from any of Sponsor’s retail stores during the Qualifying Period, which must be paid in full and actually delivered no later than the end of business day on January 20, 2019.  Sponsor shall not be obligated to change its normal delivery practices in order to qualify any purchase as a Qualifying Purchase.  Layaway sales, special orders  or out of stock product purchases not paid in full and actually delivered  by January 20, 2019, are excluded. Purchases  other than through Sponsor’s retail stores (including Sponsor’s web site or Amazon.com)  are also excluded.  No returns, exchanges or cancellations subsequent to delivery are permitted (and any items so returned, exchanged or cancelled shall not be considered a Qualifying Purchase).

Qualifying Product

“Qualifying Product” is furniture, mattresses and home décor available for purchase through Sponsor’s stores or website.  Qualifying Product excludes sales tax and delivery charges. Purchase of gift cards or similar items are also excluded. 

Qualifying Period

The “Qualifying Period” for in store purchases is  Sponsor’s normal business hours from December 29, 2018 through January 1, 2019.

Issue of Conditional Rebate following a Snow Event

Each Qualifying Customer will automatically be qualified for this Conditional Rebate Offer for their Qualifying Purchases of Qualifying Products.  If a Snow Event occurs, the Qualifying Customer will have the opportunity to receive, subject to all the terms and conditions contained in these Official Rules, a rebate check in an amount equal to the total sum of  all Qualifying Purchases made by the Qualifying Customer, excluding sales tax and delivery charges and other charges described above (the “Rebate Amount”). If a Snow Event does not occur, a Qualifying Customer shall NOT receive the Rebate Amount or any other award, refund, rebate or compensation under this Conditional Rebate Offer.

Snow Event

 A “Snow Event” means that there has been at least four (4) inches (without regard to rounding of any type) of newly fallen snowfall  at O’Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois, from 12:01 am to 11:59 pm on February 2, 2019  (the “Snow Date”) as reported in the Local Climatological Data Daily Summary issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service for Chicago O’Hare International Airport regarding the Snow Date (the “Snow Report”).  Sponsor intends to review the Snow Report on or about February 4, 2019 or thereafter pending the issuance of the Snow Report.  If for any reason the Snow Report for the Snow Date is not available to Sponsor on or about  that date, Sponsor shall select a third party report regarding snow accumulation at O’Hare on the Snow Date to determine whether a Snow Event occurred.  If an alternate report is also not available, Sponsor will determine whether a Snow Event has occurred in its sole discretion (which may include obtaining a report regarding snowfall in another location in Chicago, Illinois for the Snow Date). The actual snowfall measurement amount recorded will not be rounded up, and only the actual result will be considered. For example, if the actual snowfall measurement for the Snow Date reported in the Snow Report is 3.9 inches, a Snow Event will not have occurred.

How To Participate—Alternate Means Of Entry

A Qualifying Customer who otherwise does not receive a conditional rebate can qualify for this Conditional Rebate Offer without purchasing Qualifying Product by submitting a write-in entry in a postcard or card (a "Write-ln Entry Form") that is no smaller than 3 x 5 inches and no larger than 4x 6 inches, and includes, in legible handwriting, such person's complete name, mailing address, phone number and date of birth.  The Write-In Entry Form shall be mailed  to Sponsor with proper postage to the RoomPlace Conditional Rebate Offer (Let it Snow); 1000 Rohlwing Road,  Suite 46; Lombard, IL 60148.   All Write-ln Entry Forms must be postmarked by January 2, 2019 and received by Sponsor no later than January 7, 2019.  There is a limit of one Write-In Entry Form per envelope or postcard and one Write-In Entry per Qualifying Customer, and duplicate entries will be deemed void.  Write-In Entry Forms must contain all entry fields outlined above.

Should a Snow Event occur, one of the Write-In Entry Forms shall be selected by Sponsor at random, and the Qualifying Customer named on the Write-In Entry Form will be awarded a Sponsor gift card (the “Conditional Gift Card”)  in the amount of the average of the Rebate Amounts issued to the other Qualifying Customers for their Qualifying Purchases.  The winner of the Conditional Gift Card will be informed by Sponsor within fifteen (15) days of the determination of a Snow Event, and the Conditional Gift Card will be issued as described in these Official Rules.  A purchase will not improve a Qualifying Customer’s chances of winning the Conditional Gift Card.

Conditional Rebate Offer Delivery:

In the event that a Snow Event does occur Sponsor intends to post a notice that the Snow Event had occurred at www.theroomplace.com/LetItSnow, although Sponsor may not be able to confirm that a Snow Event occurred until up to seven (7) business days following the Snow Date.  Should a Snow Event occur, each Qualifying Customer will receive their rebate check in the amount of their Rebate Amount (and the Conditional Gift Card will be issued)  within approximately 15 weeks after verification that the conditions of these Official Rules have been met. Qualifying Purchases must be confirmed paid in full at the time of rebate issue, and not otherwise cancelled or returned prior to a Qualifying Customer being eligible to receive their rebate.
