Of course, there is some fine print. The winner does have to purchase the home within four months of winning the contest, and they have to live there for at least a year. Also, the new home does have to be in a Jimmy John’s delivery zone.

Jimmy John’s won’t even give the winner a check — the money will go straight to the closing agent on the home purchase contract. The winner will be responsible for coordinating their own move.
