Eligible Winners must reply by email within ten (10) business days from the date the email is sent and must provide first name, last name, and phone number. Eligible Winners must first correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question. The Sponsor will email the Eligible Winners, and the Eligible Winners will be required to sign and return within two (2) business days of notification a declaration of eligibility and a liability/publicity release, which:
A. confirms compliance with the Contest Rules; and
B. releases the Sponsor, its affiliated companies and agents, advertising and promotion agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (the “Released Parties”) from any liability in connection with the Contest, the Eligible Winner’s participation therein and/or the awarding and use or misuse of the prize or any portion thereof.

7. There will be five (5) prizes (the “Prizes”) available to be won, consisting of the Sponsor waiving the Credit Builder monthly program fees for the remainder of the Credit Builder term for each Confirmed Winner. For greater certainty, the waiver of the monthly program fee will only commence the subsequent month after the Confirmed Winner has signed up and successfully made the first monthly program payment for Credit Builder. Monthly program fees will only be waived while the Credit Builder is active (e.g. fees will not be paid out or refunded if the Credit Builder is canceled).
No substitutions except at the Sponsor’s option. The Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a Prize with one of equal or greater value, including without limitation, but solely at the Sponsor’s discretion, a cash award. The Confirmed Winner(s) agree to waive all recourse against the Released Parties if the Prize or a component thereof does not prove satisfactory, either in whole or in part. The Sponsor will not replace a lost or stolen Prize.

¹Credit Builder is an instalment loan with a monthly payment of $10, $30 or $50 a month, depending on the program plan. All payments (including missed payments) will be reported to Equifax Canada as an instalment tradeline. Borrowell does not guarantee credit score improvement, which is dependent on a number of factors such as payment history.
