Default Goya Bye, Bye Bills WIn $5000/month for life! Ends 2/15/2010

I didn't post all of the rules - as you can see, they are rather lengthy!

http://byebyebills.goya.com/goya/iw09/home#

Timing:
The On-Pack Game begins on or about September 15, 2009 and ends on October 1, 2010. The Online Game begins on September 15, 2009 and ends at 11:59 PM ET on February 15, 2010. The Mail-In Sweepstakes begins on September 15, 2009 and ends on October 1, 2010.

WITH PURCHASE: Starting on or about September 15, 2009, Game Pieces will be available on specially marked 15.5-ounce packages of Goya Blue Label Canned Beans and 8-ounce boxes of Goya Yellow Rice. For Goya Canned Beans, Game Pieces are printed on the reverse side of the can labels. For Goya Yellow Rice, Game Pieces are printed on the inside of the box. To remove Game Pieces from specially marked packages, carefully cut them out along the dotted lines.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY: To request a Game Piece without making a purchase, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope ("SASE") to: GOYA® Bye Bye Bills! Game Piece Request, P.O. Box 673, Ardsley NY 10502. Mail-in requests must be postmarked by June 1, 2010 and received by June 15, 2010. Vermont residents with a return address located in Vermont may omit return postage. Limit one request per person, per mailing address and per household per day. Additional requests beyond this limit will not be acknowledged nor honored. DO NOT SEND PRIZE REDEMPTION REQUESTS, POTENTIAL WINNING GAME PIECES, COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS TO THIS ADDRESS. Each request must be mailed in a separate outer envelope. Requests that are sent in business reply envelopes that are photocopied, mechanically reproduced or not mailed in separate outer envelopes will NOT be honored. The return address and SASE mailing address must be the same address or the request will NOT be honored. One (1) Game Piece will be mailed in response to each request, while supplies last. Not responsible for lost, misdirected, late or postage due mail.
4b. How To Play And Win The On-Pack Game: There are two ways to win a prize:
  1. i. Collect-and-Win: Printed on each Collect-and-Win Game Piece is one (1) month of the year. To win the Grand Prize, you must collect all twelve (12) months of the year, January through December, subject to verification. If you collect all twelve (12) months of the year, you must validate and claim your Grand Prize as set forth below (see Rule 4d).
    NOTE: GAME PIECES COLLECTED IN THE ON-PACK GAME AND THE ONLINE GAME MAY NOT BE COMBINED. ALL PRIZE CLAIMS MUST ONLY INCLUDE GAME PIECES FROM EITHER THE ON-PACK GAME OR THE ONLINE GAME.
  2. ii. Instant Win: If your Game Piece has "Instant Winner" printed on it, you have won the prize indicated on your Instant Win Game Piece, subject to verification. If you get an "Instant Winner" Game Piece, you must validate and claim your Prize as set forth below (see Rule 4d).
  3. 4d. How To Redeem Prizes In The On-Pack Game: To redeem an On-Pack Game prize, sign your initials in ink across the face of each of your Official Game Piece(s) (Official Game Piece(s) should be cut out along the dotted lines), and mail the original Game Piece(s) with a 3" x 5" card on which you have legibly printed your full name, date of birth, complete address [street address, apartment number (if any), city, state, zip code], day/evening/cell telephone numbers, and email address (if any), in a stamped envelope to: GOYA® Bye Bye Bills! Game, P.O. Box 661, Ardsley, NY 10502 (the "Redemption Center"), for receipt by October 1, 2010 (the "Redemption Deadline") which is when the Game ends. All prize claims received after the Redemption Deadline shall be deemed VOID and will be ineligible for prizes. Prize claims of more than $10 must be sent via Certified or Registered Mail, return receipt requested. All prize claims are subject to verification. Prizes will not be awarded and sent out until the Game Pieces and the potential winner's compliance with these Official Rules have been verified. Game Pieces that are complete and duly submitted to the Redemption Center by the Redemption Deadline will be verified within six (6) weeks after the Game Pieces are received, or as soon thereafter as reasonably practical. Once verified, all Prize Winners will be notified by mail of their prize eligibility.
    5. Online Game
    5a. How To Participate In The Online Game: Game Pieces for the Online Game may be obtained one way:
    NO PURCHASE NECESSARY: Starting on September 15, 2009, you may participate in the Online Game by visiting the www.goya.com website. Upon visiting the website and completing the online registration form, you will be able to collect an Online Game Piece once per day per email address for the duration of the Online Game promotion period, no purchase necessary. Each day after logging on to the contest website you will receive either an Instant Win or a Collect-and-Win Game Piece. In the event you receive a Collect-and-Win Game Piece, you will see your Online Game board in the form of a calendar indicating the Game Pieces that you have collected to date. Each Online Game Piece that you collect will be added to your current Online Game board.
    5b. How To Play And Win The Online Game: There are two ways to win a prize:
  4. Collect-and-Win: Each Collect-and-Win Game Piece you receive in the Online Game is one (1) month of the year. These Game Pieces will be stored on your own personalized Online Game board in the form of a calendar. To win the Grand Prize, you must collect all twelve (12) months of the year, January through December, subject to verification. If you collect all twelve (12) months of the year, you will be informed on screen and you will also receive an email with instructions on validating and claiming your Grand Prize.
    NOTE: GAME PIECES COLLECTED IN THE ON-PACK GAME AND THE ONLINE GAME MAY NOT BE COMBINED. ALL PRIZE CLAIMS MUST ONLY INCLUDE GAME PIECES FROM EITHER THE ON-PACK GAME OR THE ONLINE GAME.
  5. Instant Win: If the Game Piece you receive indicates you are an Instant Winner (subject to verification), you will be informed on screen and will also receive an email with instructions on validating and claiming your Instant Win Prize.
6c. Prizes / Odds Of Winning The Mail-In Sweepstakes: For the Mail-In Sweepstakes, there is one (1) prize available as follows: Chance to win $5,000 a month for life, $7,500, or $5,000 (minimum prize awarded is $5,000, see Rule 7). The odds of winning the Mail-In Sweepstakes will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received during the Mail-In Sweepstakes promotion period.
7. Grand Prize: In order to become a verified Grand Prize Winner ("GPW") and have the opportunity to win a $5,000 a month for life, $7,500 or $5,000 prize, potential Grand Prize Winners in the On-Pack Game, Online Game and Mail-In Sweepstakes will be required to sign and return to Administrator, within ten (10) business days of the date notice is sent, an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release, and unless prohibited by law, a publicity release. GPW's in the On-Pack Game, Online Game and the Mail-In Sweepstakes will have the opportunity to win $5,000 a month for life, $7,500, or $5,000. Once a GPW is verified, a representative of the Sponsor will visit the GPW at a mutually convenient location and time. At that visit, the GPW will be handed a set of thirty-two (32) sealed and uniquely numbered envelopes ("Envelopes"). The set of Envelopes will consist of five (5) envelopes containing the message "$5,000 a month for life," twenty-two (22) envelopes containing the message "$7,500," and five (5) envelopes containing the message "$5,000." The GPW must open Envelopes until five (5) envelopes containing messages of the same prize level are revealed. The GPW must stop opening the Envelopes after five (5) envelopes containing messages of the same prize level have been revealed, thus determining the prize amount the GPW wins. If the GPW continues to open Envelopes after five (5) envelopes for any particular prize level have been opened by the GPW, then the Sponsor is relieved of all liability for that GPW and no prize will be awarded. Approximate odds of the GPW winning $5,000 a month for life is 1 in 644, $7,500 642 in 644, and $5,000 1 in 644. If a GPW wins either the $5,000 or $7,500 prize, this represents the total prize the GPW wins in the Game. If a GPW wins the $5,000 a month for life prize, they will have the option of receiving $5,000 a month for as long as they live, or a one-time lump sum payment of $1,300,000 (assuming there is only one (1) winner of the $5,000 a month for life prize). If more than one (1) GPW from the Game wins the $5,000 a month for life prize, this prize will be split equally amongst the winners and each of these GPWs will receive an equal share of this prize.
