CONTEST RULES – 2020

Official Rules

To give all our listeners the opportunity to feel the excitement of winning from the Rabbit, we ask our contestants to remember a few guidelines. Please wait at least two weeks after you win a prize to play another contest on WQBE. If the prize you win is a major prize ($100 value or more) please wait at least 30 days before playing another contest. We also limit most contests to one winner per household. Some contests have additional restrictions which will be announced or posted as needed.

Most prizes won on-air at WQBE or here on the Rabbit’s Website are to be picked up at our offices. This is a necessary policy because many of the prizes are too big, bulky, or heavy to be mailed. Other times we give away tickets for shows or events that will occur only a day or two past the giveaway date, so there is not enough time to mail these items. We also give away many prizes that are limited, one of a kind, or not replaceable. If they are lost in the mail, we can not get replacements for the winners. And, finally, once an item is mailed, we have no way to verify whether the winner received the prize or not. These reasons make it impractical for us to mail prizes, so we simply ask winners to pick up their prizes at our offices during normal business hours which are Monday through Friday – 9am to 5pm – except holidays. If your prize will not be available for normal pick-up, special instructions will be given to you at the time of winning. Prizes not picked up within 30 days may be forfeited. Prizes such as concert and event tickets that are for a specific show, concert, or event, must be picked up at the office of WQBE prior to 5pm eastern time on the last day of business prior to the show, concert, or event else they shall be forfeited and become the exclusive property of WQBE.

Unless otherwise posted, contests on WQBE are open to all legal U.S. residents of West Virginia, Ohio & Kentucky. Contestants must be age 18 or older to win and/or claim prizes with a retail value of $100 or more or certain other prizes that by their nature should be restricted to persons under 18 years old.
