Easter Treasure Hunt has been a recurring event at OzBargain over the last couple of years (2016, 2017 & 2018). We are now doing it again this year. Initially I was thinking of giving away some popular items from both Amazon and eBay Australia, as IMHO Amazon vs eBay was one of the main theme here in OzBargain last year. The problem is — the deals that were popular before are no longer on sale, and there's no way I am paying the RRP for prizes that were a lot cheaper a few months ago.
So to make things simpler, we will be giving away Amazon / eBay gift cards, and hopefully they will be useful for many Amazon & eBay deals here. They will appear as "treasures" on the site during the Easter long weekend (19-22 April). Claim it if you spot one!
The full list of prizes is:
|Amazon AU Gift Card||$100||5|
|Amazon AU Gift Card||$50||10|
|Amazon AU Gift Card||$25||20|
|eBay AU Gift Card||$100||5|
|eBay AU Gift Card||$50||10|
|eBay AU Gift Card||$25||20|
Total prize (if all claimed): $3,000. For $50 and $100 gift cards — you need to claim multiple parts in order to claim the prize at the end. Also try the treasure hunt market place if you are looking to trade pieces with other OzBargainers.
The official finishing time for the event is Tuesday 12PM, giving everyone a bit of time to swap pieces in the Marketplace.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When is the official starting time? I've gone through ALL the pages on OzBargain and can't find one!
The first item will drop on 19 Apr at 7:00AM. They do not hide in specific pages, rather whether the item appears on the page and which item appears depends on randomly generated "chance". That means sooner or later you'll come across one while browsing OzBargain.
Q: Who can participate?
Treasures will only show up to logged in OzBargain users. Moreover,
- Users currently in penalty box will not be able to participate.
- To combat possible ghost accounts, user accounts created after this post will not be able to participate either.
Q: Does treasure hunt work on mobile devices? What about adblockers?
It should work on mobile site and should not be affected by the presence of an adblocker.
Q: Where do treasures appear on OzBargain?
Treasures will appear on those pages:
- Front page and New Deals page
- Deal/forum post pages that (1) have 15 or more comments, and (2) last comment posted less than 90 days ago.
Treasures will appear in middle of deal listing or comments. You need to click on it within 15 seconds after the page is loaded to reveal the treasure. Click on "Claim This" to add it to your inventory, where you can keep at most 4 items.
Q: I have claimed a treasure! When will my gift card arrive?
First of all, if it's the $50 or $100 variant, you need to make sure you have also claimed both parts (eBay $100 Gift Card (1/2) and (2/2) for example). Look for them, or see whether someone in the Marketplace are trading!
The official finishing time of the event is 23 Apr 12:00PM AEST and you will not be able to trade in the marketplace afterwards. I will then try to send gift cards to all the winners by the end of next week (26 Apr).
