OzBargain Easter Treasure Hunt 13-18 April 2017. $2,000+ of Treasure to Be Found!

TL;DR — OzBargain is running site-wide Easter treasure hunt from 14 to 18 April 2017 giving away $2,000+ of goodies, including a Nintendo Switch.

We ran OzBargain Treasure Hunt back in 2015 giving away an Xbox One, and then again last year giving away a PlayStation 4. With the recent release of Nintendo Switch, I thought it would be fitting to run the Easter treasure hunt this year giving away the latest Nintendo's game console!

Basically,

  • "Treasure" / "Easter Eggs" might spawn randomly on the website, starting from 13 April at mid-day.

    Click to Reveal the treasure

  • Claim those treasures to add them to your "inventory", where you can then trade them in Market place.

    Click to Claim the treasure

  • Some prizes will require multiple parts to successfully claim the prize. For example the image above shows part 2 (out of 3) of Nintendo Classic Mini. Collect all 3 parts to win that prize! Use Marketplace wisely & trade with other OzBargainers to maximise the chances.

  • Treasure Hunt finishes at 12PM AEST 18 April, those with completed prizes will be able to fill out the address in their marketplace page.

Treasures this year are definitely on the gaming theme. I will be giving away:

  • 30x $10 Red Pocket into your PayPal account
  • 20x OzBargain T-shirts
  • 3x $20 OzGameShop gift cards
  • 3x Eneloop 8-pack AA batteries
  • 2x USD $50 Steam gift cards (2 parts)
  • 2x $50 PlayStation Store top-up (2 parts)
  • 2x $50 Xbox Live gift card (2 parts)
  • 2x Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows (2 parts)
  • Razer DeathAdder Gaming Mouse (2 parts)
  • Razer Kraken Pro Gaming Headset (2 parts)
  • Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Gaming Keyboard (2 parts)
  • LEGO Star Wars Krennic's Imperial Shuttle (3 parts)
  • Nintendo Classic Mini (3 parts)
  • Nintendo 3DS XL (3 parts)
  • Nintendo Switch (3 parts)

Yes we are also giving away LEGO 75156 Krennic's Imperial Shuttle from last year's The Rogue One (as we gave away an X-Wing & TIE Fighter previously). Total value $2,000+ (depending on whether I can get a bargain when I need to send them out next week), however not all might be claimed.

Have a read of previous threads on OzBargain Treasure Hunt to give you more information — 2015, 2016 & OzB10 T-shirts.

Have a great Easter!

  • Hey there! Nice! I was wondering if adblock stops the prizes from showing up? Thanks!

    • Haha

    • +1

      Lol I just was wondering the same thing

    • +2

      That depends on whether your adblock rules block anything with "treasure" in it.

      • Quick question scotty… does it work properly on mobile?
        Cheers in advance : )

        • +1

          Yes it does.

  • +1

    Yaaaahoooooo!

  • Does it start on the 13th or 14th of April?

    • +1

      Answer is in the FAQ

  • Hey Scotty are the t-shirts the grey or orange ones?

    • +2

      Orange. Don't have any grey t-shirts, and the black ozbargain10 ones are all given out.

      • Lucky or unlucky you. I'll be in 4G zones :(

        • +1

          I'll be out to sea trying not to get my phone wet or smash it on the deck in the waves. XD

  • +1

    Will it be only on the front deal page, new deal pages and "Deal/forum/competition pages that have (1) at least 15 comments (2) last commented less than 30 days ago (between comments)". Or will it appear randomly anywhere now?

    • +5

      They might appear on

      • front page
      • new deals page
      • individual deals / forum pages

      It would be randomly. Note that some items might only come up on front page or new deals page.

      • +1

        Thanks Scotty!

  • Cant wait i want the mini Nintendo

  • I just clicked on one of the OZBARGAIN TREASURE HUNT pop ups about 5 mins ago, it was on the second page of new deals, but it is not showing in my inventory when I go to market place.

    • Did you also click on "Claim This" button?

      • I clicked on it and then it disappeared and then my next click I went to the market place but I didn't see any "claim this" button. Maybe someone beat me to it, anyway no worries will keep trying :)

        • If it disappeared you mightn't've clicked it in time.

  • +4

    Just found a t-shirt. :)
    Don't even know the event before clicked claim button. :p

    • +4

      +1 for t-shirt (but I did know about it)

  • +1

    Site instantly slower at midnight

  • How many seconds before it dissapears?

    • Treasure stays on the page for around 15 seconds.

      • Thanks Hamza
        Happy easter!

  • What does drop item mean?

    • +1

      You don't want that item so it goes back to the pool (someone else can claim it)

  • +2

    I just come to open OzBargain and I found a t-shirt, lol, I love OzBargain :P

    • +4

      Congratulations!! I am so happy for you.

    • +1

      Finally got one and you're trying to trade it?

  • +2

    Switch already gone.

    Edit: Nvm. I get it now. Haha

    • +2

      explain?

      • +2

        He read it as 3/3 parts found but it actually meant part 3 has been found.

  • How eggciting. I found a t-shirt.

    THANK YOU SCOTTY!!

    Will wear it with pride!

  • +3

    Do eggs spawn on page load, or do they come up just randomly while browsing? or both?!?!?!?!?!?

    • -2
      • +2

        Sorry, where does that say if they come up on page load or afterwards?

        If i stay on a page reading deals can it come up, or does it come up as soon as the page loads and then disappears after 15 seconds?

  • +1

    Will they appear on grid view on the front page?

  • +4

    3 packs of eneloops? Don't competitions normally have only one major prize?

  • +2

    Quite hard for me to find a treasure

    • +2

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/marketplace

      If I understand correctly there is only 1 released at certain intervals.

    • +3

      Same lol. Wasted 5 hours and counting!

      • +3

        At this rate, I'm imagining treasures on the screen that aren't there 😂

    • +2

      Someone just found it, but another one in 2 minutes.

      • +2

        Yup, very hard!

        • +1

          Wow 3 released this time.

  • +6

    Wow found $10 on the home page, could've made more by doing online surveys

    • +1

      So that's $2 per hour. Not even enough to buy an eneloop or a new F5 key :(

  • +3

    Must. Get. A T-shirt.

    • +1

      Must. Get. Envelop.

    • +1

  • +2
