 Callers will be notified immediately by the 1-800-COLLECT operator if they are that day's potential winner. Entrants must be at least 16 years of age. Void where prohibited by law. For further information about the Daily Giveaway, consumers may call 1-800-RULES-4U to hear a recorded message outlining complete rules and the address for mailing-in their entries.
