No purchase or account opening necessary to enter. Contest is void in whole or part where prohibited by law. See Eligibility section below for further details. Participation in the Contest constitutes full and unconditional agreement and acceptance of these Official Contest Rules (the “Rules”) (which may be amended by Tangerine from time to time in its sole discretion). All dollar amounts are in Canadian funds ($CDN) unless otherwise noted.

1. Contest Period:

The Contest will begin on April 8, 2019 and end on May 10, 2019, 11:59 pm ET (the "Contest Period").

3. How to Enter:

During the Contest Period, Eligible entrants (a) who become a Client by visiting tangerine.ca and using the Orange Key NBA50, and (b) who open a Tangerine Chequing or Savings Account with a minimum $100 deposit will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Contest. The Client must have a valid email address, as determined by Sponsor at the time of winner selection. Potential winners may be required to provide Tangerine with proof that the potential winner is the authorized Account holder.

If it’s discovered that an entrant has or attempted to: (i) enter more than once or (ii) use multiple names, Tangerine Accounts, email addresses or identities to enter, or otherwise participate in, the Contest, then (in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor) he/she may be disqualified from participation in the Contest.
