Google has definitely shelled out on this sweepstakes. In total, there will be five “Grand Prize Winners,” with an actual amount of $7,000 as the prize, $2,000 of which is to offset tax.
The Pixel 5 is one of Google’s first 5G phones besides the Pixel 4a 5G; thus, the name “$5G Sweepstakes.” Eligible Americans can gain entry when they buy the Pixel 5 from November 2 though 30 at 11:59:59 p.m. PST.

The handwritten entry should have a self-addressed stamped #10 envelope that contains your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, as well as your date of birth on a 3″ x 5″ card. It is to be mailed to:
Google Pixel 5 $5G Sweepstakes
P.O. Box 488
Syosset, New York

An easy $5,000 brought to you by Google
After all the entries are in, Google will then conduct a random draw on or around the 20th of December to announce the five lucky winners who will pocket $5,000 each.

As already mentioned, winners will won a total of $7,000 (with a $2,000 tax offset). However, the company will only allow you to withdraw a maximum $700 per week from your winnings.
Admittedly, the company’s latest promotion seems like a very unconventional approach to smartphone marketing. It is not something Google does on a regular basis.
