  1. Winner Selection and Notification:

The potential winner will be selected on or about May 18, 2015, by random selection from all eligible entries (“Potential Winner”). The Potential Winner will be notified by email (at the email address provided in the Sweepstakes entry) or by direct message on Instagram (at the Instagram handle provided in the Sweepstakes entry).  The Potential Winner (if a resident of a jurisdiction that deems him/her to be a minor, his/her parent or legal/guardian) will have three (3) business days from the date of the notification email or message to respond.  If the Potential Winner does not respond to the email notification or direct message within this time frame, he/she may be disqualified and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected from among the other Sweepstakes entrants at Sponsor’s sole discretion. If the prize notification cannot be delivered or is returned as undeliverable, the Potential Winner forfeits the Prize. In the event that the Potential Winner does not comply with these Official Rules or is otherwise disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the applicable Prize to an alternate Potential Winner selected from among the other Sweepstakes entrants at its sole discretion. The Potential Winner who receives a Prize is known as a “Winner”.



  1. Prizes:1 prize will be awarded. (2 Monthly Flower Gift Plan for a Year for the Entrant and their Mom) The Prize consists of the following: Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) $1,200.00 USD.  The value of each of the Prizes represents Sponsor’s good faith determination of the ARV thereof and cannot be challenged or appealed. In the event the ARV of any Prize (or Prize component) is more than the actual retail value of such Prize (or Prize component), the difference will not be awarded in cash or otherwise.  Terms of FTD’s monthly flower gift plan apply.  No substitutions


Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Sweepstakes entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. If a Potential Winner is a resident of a jurisdiction that deems him/her a minor, the applicable Prize will be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian. If a Winner forfeits a Prize, this forfeiture will serve as complete fulfillment of the obligation by the Sponsor and no additional compensation will be awarded. The Winner is solely responsible for all costs, incidentals, and any other expenses not specifically mentioned as being included. No substitution, transfer, or cash equivalent for a Prize (or Prize component) is permitted, except that Sponsor may substitute a prize of equal or greater value in its sole discretion. All federal, state, local or other taxes are the sole responsibility of each Winner. Each Winner will receive a 1099 from the Sponsor for the total ARV of the applicable Prize (stated herein) that he/she won in the calendar year that he/she won. EACH PRIZE IS AWARDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSES).
