Entrants must retain their original Big W purchase receipt(s) for all entries as proof of purchase, clearly stating the product and date of purchase. Limit of four (4) entries per household per day is permitted.

Information on how to enter and prizes form part of these Terms and Conditions. Participation in this promotion is deemed acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to verify the validity of entries and entrants (including an entrant’s identity, age and place of residence) and to disqualify any entrant who submits an entry that is not in accordance with these Terms and Conditions or who tampers with the entry process. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights.
Incomplete, indecipherable or illegible entries will be deemed invalid.
Multiple entries permitted, subject to the following: (a) only one entry permitted per Polyglaze product purchased; (b) each entry must be submitted separately and in accordance with entry requirements; and (c) a maximum of four (4) entries per household per day is permitted.
Entrants must retain their original Big W purchase receipt(s) for all entries as proof of purchase, clearly stating the product and date of purchase.

If there is a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the identity of the entrant.

I just tried to enter this one again with no luck, so I rang and spoke to a lovely man in the Marketing Department. He asked me to email my details and he will follow it up with the Promotions Company.

Hopefully it will be fixed in the next few days, so for those who have had no luck entering, try again then.

Good luck all.
