Contest Terms & Conditions

BJ's Tropical Summer Contest

Smart Circle is excited to announce the Tropical Summer Contest for ICDs providing Services in BJ’s Wholesale Club!

This contest will run from May 30, 2022 to June 26, 2022 (the “Contest Entry Period”).

There will be three (3) Grand Prize Winners during the Contest Entry Period. In addition, each week, Smart Circle will be awarding prizes to five (5) random winners.

The three (3) Grand Prize Winners will be determined based on the total number of points earned by ICDs during the Contest Entry Period.  Each Grand Prize winner will receive a gift card or merchandise valued at $1,000.

The five (5) weekly winners will be determined by creating one (1) contest entry for each point the ICD earns as described below. On Thursday of each week during the Contest Entry Period, all entries for the week ending Sunday will be placed in a container, a random drawing will be held and five (5) winners will be selected. Each weekly prize winner will receive a gift card valued at $200.

The points will be determined weekly for each week ending Sunday as follows:    

1 point categories:

  • ICDs provide Services in agreed upon BJ’s Wholesale Club locations (the “Assigned Locations”). Sales of new/port wireless phone lines are tracked for each Assigned Location. ICD will earn 1 point for each of its Assigned Location(s) where the Assigned Location’s weekly ranking over a rolling 4 week period has improved (e.g. moves from #20 to #18) for the sale of new/port wireless phone lines when compared to other Assigned Locations.
  • 1 point for each of ICD’s Assigned Location(s) where ICD increases its sales of new/port wireless phone lines week over week.
  • 1 point for each of ICD’s Assigned Location(s) ranked in the top 40 when compared to all other ICDs selling new/port wireless phone lines in BJ’s Wholesale Club.
  • ICD provides Smart Circle with electronic confirmation, using GPS tracking of check-in and check-out times and photographic evidence of timely check-in, that each of its Assigned Locations was staffed at all Requisite Times during that week. 1 point for each compliant Assigned Location.

2 point categories:

  • ICD will earn 2 points for each of its Assigned Location(s) where the Assigned Location’s weekly ranking over a rolling 4 week period has improved for 2 consecutive weeks (e.g. moves from #20 to #18 and from #18 to #15) for the sale of new/port wireless phone lines when compared to other Assigned Locations.
  • 2 points for each of ICD’s Assigned locations where ICD increases its sales of new/port wireless phone lines week over week for 2 consecutive weeks.
  • 2 points for each of ICD’s Assigned Location(s) ranked in the top 20 when compared to all other ICDs selling new/port wireless phone lines in BJ’s Wholesale Club.           

3 point categories:

  • ICD will earn 3 points for each of its Assigned Location(s) where the Assigned Location’s weekly ranking over a rolling 4 week period has improved for 4 consecutive weeks (e.g. moves from #20 to #18 and from #18 to #15 and from #15 to #10 and from #10 to #8) for the sale of new/port wireless phone lines when compared to other  Assigned Locations.
  • 3 points for each of ICD’s Assigned Locations where ICD increases its sales of new/port wireless phone lines week over week for 4 consecutive weeks.
  • ICD agrees to provide Services at a new location through a road trip or expansion.

5 point categories:

  • ICD owner earns $1,000 or more in Commission by acting as a Sales Representative
  • The ICD with the Assigned Location that sells the most new/port wireless lines when compared to all other ICDs selling new/port wireless phone lines in BJ’s Wholesale Club.                                                                                                                  

Where appropriate, weekly point totals are cumulative. For example, the Assigned Location that sells the most new/port wireless lines when compared to all others will receive 8 points (Top 40 ranking = 1 point, Top 20 ranking = 2 points, #1 ranking = 5 points). Also, if more than 1 ICD is providing Services in an Assigned Location, each ICD will earn points based on the performance of the Assigned Location.

Smart Circle will rely solely on sales reports received from Client AT&T and its own internal reports for the purpose of creating the weekly entries.
