The event will be points based. Each member will receive 1 entry into the draw per required amount of points crunched.

The required points per entry will be based on RAC (Recent Average Credit) and categorized per the table below.

  • RAC <1000 – 3,000 pts per entry
  • RAC 1000-3000 – 5,000 pts per entry
  • RAC 3000-5000 – 7,000 pts per entry
  • RAC 5000-7500 – 10,000 pts per entry
  • RAC >7500 – 12,500 pts per entry

Total points will be recorded at midnight on Nov 1st, and again at midnight of the 30th. After which, points will be tallied and entries made per RAC category then randomized by a third party.

Draws will be made on the 1st of December, and entry confirmation will be provided.
