INSTANT WIN PROMOTION

HOW TO ENTER
TERMS AND CONDITION

HOW TO ENTER

Individuals who conduct a search using the 'Search and Win' search engine located at www.searchandwin.com.au during the relevant promotional period will be eligible to win randomly allocated Instant Win Prizes.

Individuals who are allocated an Instant Win Prize will be notified on-screen before their search results are shown. To claim their Instant Win Prize, individuals who have not already logged in as a registered member of the 'Search & Win' search engine must then either:

  • Follow the prompts to register as a member; or
  • If they are already a member, login with their registration details.

Only the first five (5) searches per person per day will be eligible to win an Instant Win Prize.

If a registered member who wins an Instant Win Prize was originally invited by a friend or family member ("Referee") to register via the "Send to a friend" form on the 'Search & Win' search engine, then that Referee will also win the same Instant Win Prize.
