If I win, how do I claim my iPad? 
>> Show us your report!

If you decide not to submit an email address, your pricing data will be entered anonymously and you will not be entered to win an iPad. 

Otherwise, you will be emailed your answers immediately after you've submitted them.  We will compare our data with your answers to ensure each entry is representing only one genuine household.
Just to be extra sure and fair to everyone, we will randomly audit households that submit pricing data.
 
If you entered your email address, do you want to be added to our mailing list so you can contribute your pricing data to our next batch of items? *

Why do I want to know about the next batch?  >> Because each time you submit pricing data for a unique batch of items, you can be entered for another chance to win an iPad!
