See below for additional eligibility requirements.

The ‘PIN & WIN’ IKEA CANADA PINTEREST Promotion (the “Promotion”) commences at 12:00:00 a.m. (midnight) Eastern Time (“ET”) on August 13, 2012 and concludes at 6:00:01 p.m. ET on August 26, 2012 (the “Promotion Period”). The time at which the Promotion concludes is referred to in these Promotion Rules as the “Promotion Closing Time”.

2. No purchase necessary. To enter, contestants must visit http://www.pinterest.com/ikeacanada and follow IKEA Canada. You must be a member of Pinterest to follow us. To become a member of Pinterest, you may go to pinterest.com to request membership. Membership in Pinterest is free. After you follow us, select one (1) of the available seven (7) ‘Pin & Win’ IKEA Canada boards on http://www.pinterest.com/ikeacanada and ‘pin’ a minimum of one (1) photo within one (1) ‘Pin & Win’ IKEA Canada board. Only one (1) ‘Pin & Win’ IKEA Canada board entry per person is permitted during the Promotion Period; however, entrants can pin multiple, different photos within one (1) ‘Pin & Win’ IKEA Canada board to increase their chance of being randomly selected to win one (1) $100 CAD IKEA Canada gift card (each a “Prize”, collectively “Prizes”). Each entrant can only win one (1) Prize during the Promotion Period. Photos pinned from other websites are not eligible for purposes of this Promotion. Use of any robotic, automatic, programmed or similar entry method or more than one (1) board entry during the Promotion Period will void all entries and result in disqualification.


3. The Promotion is open to legal residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) who have reached the age of majority in their province/territory of residence excluding employees, directors, officers, representatives and agents of IKEA Canada (the “Sponsor”) and its advertising and promotional agencies, Pinterest and its affiliates and subsidiaries, and members of each of their respective immediate families or persons living in the same household.


4. One (1) Prize will be awarded each day during the Promotion. For purposes of this Promotion, a “day” will begin at 12:00:00 a.m. (midnight) ET and will end at 11:59:59 p.m. ET, with the exception of the last day of the Promotion Period where the day will end at 6:00:01 p.m. ET. The Prizes available to be won in this Promotion consist of fourteen (14) IKEA Canada gift cards each valued at $100 CAD. One (1) Prize will be awarded per day in the Promotion, for a total of fourteen Prizes to be awarded over the Promotional Period. Prizes must be accepted as awarded and no substitution, assignment or transfer of Prizes by a winner is permitted. Prizes are not redeemable for cash.

5. Winners will be selected in a random drawing held each day during the Promotion Period at approximately 7:00 p.m. ET commencing on August 14, 2012. Drawing will be conducted by Sponsor. Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received and the number of photos pinned by each eligible entrant. Selected entrants will be notified by e-mail and will be required to sign and return to the Sponsor a Prize Claim Form, including the correct answer to the mathematical skill testing question (provided without mechanical or other assistance) posed on the Form. Each selected entrant will have forty eight (48) hours to sign and return his/her fully completed Prize Claim Form or the Prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate randomly selected entrant. The return of any Prize or Prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate entrant by random drawing. If a dispute arises as to the identity of a selected entrant, entries will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address submitted at the time of entry/registration. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet Access Provider, on-line service provider or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. All taxes resulting from acceptance of a Prize are the responsibility of each winner. Prizes will be delivered to confirmed winners within four (4) weeks of the Promotion Closing Time.
