Also, the retailer must offer an amount that is equal to or is less than the prize value in USD funds, with the exchange rate used at the time of award of the prize (ie, as of November 8, 2020, $100 USD = $130.50 CAD, thus the retailer must offer a gift card amount of $130 CAD or less). For charity donations, we will not donate to any political parties or support a political candidate for office. We will only donate to a registered charity organization (ie, they provide donation receipts upon your donation). No prize substitutions will be allowed for this contest.
