HGTV’s Smart Home Giveaway, with a grand prize valued at over $1.5 million (including home, car, and cash), is accepting entries for one more week, until June 2, 2017. The sweepstakes prizewinner will be chosen at random on or about June 13.
To be more specific, the grand prize winner gets a fully-furnished “smart” home in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as a 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE 550e 4MATIC and $100,000 from mortgage lender Quicken Loans. According to HGTV, “the single-level Southwestern-style home is approximately 3,300-square-feet, with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, cleverly constructed with tech gadgets and smart solutions to enhance entertaining and everyday living.”
Entries can be made once per day through the HGTV and DIYNetwork sweepstakes forms, or you can mail in as many entries as you like. See this page for official rules. Online entries with your email address are going to put you on the HGTV list for all sorts of email messages, so take that into consideration when entering.
Taxes on all those goodies will be the responsibility of the winner, so expect to come up with at least $300,000 (and probably more) if you take “home” the grand prize. (You might end up needing to sell that smart home!)
