· There will be four $25 BizBazBucks gift certificates available to win in the giveaway. One gift certificate per winner only.

· The gift certificates given away in this promotion are valid for the 2014 Bizarre Bazaar only. If for some reason it isn’t used during this event, it is no longer valid and has no cash value.

· Each winning gift certificate is redeemable at one vendor only. Multiple purchases from one vendor are allowed and it can be used with other forms of payment if the total purchase exceeds $25. There will be no change given based solely on a purchase with the gift certificate; if the purchase is for $16 and the $25 gift certificate is used to pay for it, no change will be given.
