Official Rules for the Penny Saver/Disney On Ice promotion

By entering the promotion referred to in these official rules (the “Promotion”) you (the entrant) and we (the promoter whose details are set out below) are entering into a contract on the terms of these official rules (“Official Rules”).

  1. How to enter: You enter the Promotion by following @thepennysaver on Instagram or Facebook, tagging a friend in a comment and telling them which Disney character reminds you of them. By entering, you agree that we may rely on there being no present or future obligation to pay any fee to anyone or to obtain anyone’s consent or to provide any form of attribution in connection with your entry.
  2. Eligibility: Only individuals residing in **Australia** aged 18 and older can enter. Our officers, employees, contractors, agents and suppliers and the immediate family members of any of them or of anyone associated with the Promotion are ineligible to enter.  Automatically or mechanically produced entries, and entries we reasonably consider to be inappropriate for any reason (eg because they are disparaging or unlawful) are ineligible.  There is a limit of one entry per individual and for this purpose an individual may be counted by an address (so that more than one entry using a particular address will be ineligible, regardless of whether more than one individual uses the same address).
  3. Promotion period, place, time & date of selection : The Promotion starts at 8pm on Monday 28th May 2018 and closes at 8PM on Monday 4th June 2018. The winner will be selected at9 PM on 4th June 2018.  Times are **Melbourne, Victoria, Australia** times.
  4. Prize details: Details of prizes are 2 x A reserve tickets to Disney On Ice on 5th July at 7pm.. Prizes in the Promotion are not allocated on the basis of a place within a country, for example a state, municipality or city. The winner is solely responsible for all taxes and expenses in connection with acceptance or use of any prize (other than expenses expressly stated in these Official Rules as being included in the prize.)
  5. Prize value: The total prize value does not exceed **AU** $96 as of 28th May 2018.. This is calculated as the sum of the values of all possible prizes that can be won in the Promotion.  The values are the usual or recommended retail or market values of the prizes.
  6. Selection of winners: The Promotion **does/does not** involve an element of chance. **Where winners are selected based on their skill, judging will be by a judge who is appropriately qualified to judge entries.  The judging criteria will be random selection.  You agree to be bound by the judge’s decision as final.**[1] We will aim to undertake the determination of the winner in a fair and transparent manner.  If more than one prize is being determined, we will select the major prize winner first unless winning entries are eligible to be re-selected.  Where there are prizes other than the major prize we will select them in descending order of number and value.  Winning is not contingent on being present at selection of winners.  Where practicable, we will afford members of the public the opportunity to witness selection of winners.
  7. Unclaimed prizes and re-selection: We will aim to distribute all prizes in the Promotion and will take every reasonable effort to identify and contact an entrant selected as a winner. We will allow a reasonable period (and in any event one week or such longer legally required period) within which the person may claim their prize.  It person selected as the winner of the prize does not claim the prize within the time provided in these Official Rules or if we have made reasonable but unsuccessful efforts to identify or contact the person, we may substitute another person as the winner using a subsequent selection.  The date of any re-selection will be as soon as reasonably practicable after the need for a re-selection process occurs.  The time of day and place of the re-selection will be the same as for the original selection.
  8. Notification of winners: We are not required to confirm that entrants’ contact details remain up-to-date – that is entrants’ responsibility. We will aim to notify all winners personally (eg face-to-face, mail, telephone or email) within 2 business days of selection and we will otherwise aim to make all results available within 7 days after selection.  We will make results known by posting details on any one or more of the media we use to publicise the PromotionIf you are a winner and you claim your prize and comply with the other requirements of these Official Rules, we will do everything reasonably necessary to ensure you receive your prize within 28 days after your selection as a winner by the following means, namely Instagram and Facebook messages. This is unless the circumstances of the Promotion or the nature of the prize require a longer period.  When we make the results of the Promotion known, we will do so in a way which is consistent with the type of Promotion.  We will not charge winners any fee upon receipt of their prize.
  9. Separate legal terms: There may be terms applicable to prizes in addition to those set out in these Official Rules. Eg tickets to providers’ services (including entertainment events and travel-related services) are subject to providers’ terms of supply of those services.  Also, before allocating a prize to you, we may ask you to agree to some terms in addition to these Official Rules.  These would be (a) a statutory declaration confirming your eligibility to be a winner; (b) providing us with any additional information we ask as being appropriate to allocate and manage the award of the prize and claiming your prize and (c) where the prize involves participation by others nominated by you, their consents to the collections, uses and disclosures of information about them which are similar to those you give us under these Official Rules.  These additional terms may be with someone other than us.  Where Feld Entertainment (Australia) Pty Ltd ABN 49 083 865 409 is not the promoter, some of the additional terms may be for a contract directly between you and that company.  A copy of all these additional terms will be sent to you on request during the Promotion period and, if you are selected as a winner, before you decide whether to claim the prize.  If we ask you to sign and return any such additional terms and we do not receive signed copies from you within one week (or such longer period as the law requires) after our request, we may take it that you have decided not to claim your prize, declare you as ineligible as a winner and select an alternate winner.  Entry into the Promotion may require you to, or allow you to, use any electronic (online) service which is not provided by us.  Where you subscribe to such a service (eg are a member) and have entered the Promotion using it, you agree to abide by the terms of such service in addition to these Official Rules, including where required by that service provider, that you completely release that service provider and acknowledge that the Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by or associated with that service provider.

Publicity: By entering, you agree that whether or not you are selected as a winner, we, our group companies and those with whom we or they have commercial alliances (eg prize providers and trademark licensors), and without payment of any fee or obtaining any further consents (a) may use and disclose information about or depicting you (eg your image and/or voice) to promote goods and services using such media (including electronic media such as email, SMS and social media platforms) and in such ways as is reasonable in the circumstances; and (b) will be given such cooperation as is reasonably requested of you as regards participation in media requests, eg being interviewed and photographed.

It’s market season!

One of my favorite things to do (usually solo without kids!) is to stroll a market on a sunny weekend morning! I don’t really go for anything in particular, I just love getting up early, grabbing a coffee from one of the delicious coffee vans and strolling the grounds looking at all the quirky and gorgeous things these talented people create! Throw in some live music from a local artist and an extremely overpriced potato on a stick and my weekend is made!

Here is a list of local markets happening this weekend!

And so it begins…

Thank you so much for showing interest in our little project! We are so excited for you to see the book and see all the savings you and your family can take advantage of in 2018!

We have been working our butts off trying to cram in as many businesses as we can and we are so proud of what we have achieved! We have had so much fun chatting to and meeting local business owners and they are as excited as we are about the Penny Saver!

Have a look around our website, we have information for business owners, a list of places you can use your vouchers, frequently asked questions (which will no doubt be added to as the books start to sell), information about fundraising opportunities as well as some information about the charity we are working alongside.

We will be constantly updating this blog with new and exciting things to do around the Peninsula, as well as giveaways and competitions throughout the year, so keep coming back and make sure you follow our social media pages!

We will only have a limited amount of copies for our first year, so make sure you secure your copy as soon as possible!

Thanks for all the support.
