OzBargain EoFY 2021 Treasure Hunt - Next Gen Consoles & Supercars to be Won! Starting 23 June at 12PM

OzBargain Treasure Hunt 2021 Has Finished! See this comment on what to do if you have won a prize.

Original Post:

OzBargain Treasure Hunt is Back! For those who have done it before — you know the drill. TL;DR

  • Hunt starts at 12PM AEST on Wednesday 23 June 2021.
  • Hunt finishes at 10AM AEST on Friday 25 June 2021.
  • Around $10,000 worth of prizes will be given away to OzBargain members.

For those who aren't familiar with the OzBargain Treasure Hunt, it's a site-wide event that we run (almost) every year since 2015. The format hasn't really changed much, so here is just the instruction from last year's hunt. Basically various prizes will pop up on the site throughout the day during the hunt. You'll need to do a bit of scrolling as they pops up in the middle of the page. Here's an example:

Click to Reveal the Prize

There are quite a few factors that determine whether a prize pops up on the current page or not.

  • Each prize has a probability
  • Each prize also has a starting time
  • Some prizes only appear on certain pages — more on that later.

When a prize pops up on a page, it won't stay there forever. The "Click to Reveal" banner will disappear after 20 seconds without interaction. However after you click on the prize, it will reveal what the prize is and allow you to claim it.

Click to Claim the Prize

After you have claimed the prize, it will be added to your inventory, which is available on the Marketplace page (that page will be enabled 2 hours before the hunt starts). Marketplace would be very important in the later part of the hunt. You can add at most 4 items to your inventory — prizes basically would stop popping up on OzBargain once your inventory is full.


On the Marketplace page, you can

  • See what prizes you have in your inventory.
  • Drop prizes to vacate your inventory. Dropped prize will be back to the wild, ready to be picked up by other OzBargainers.
  • Put your prizes on the marketplace for trading.
  • See what prizes other users have put on the marketplace.
  • Request / Accept / Reject trades.

Trading is important because many prizes come in multiple parts — and you can only claim the final prize when you have collected all the parts!

Multipart Prize

Feel free to use private messages or this forum to organise trades.


Here is a list of prizes for the OzBargain Treasure Hunt 2021. There will be lots of Prezzee Gift Cards where you can exchange with merchants' gift cards to be spent online or instore. There will also be some OzBargain T-shirts from last year's competition. Moreover there are also OzBargain hoodies to be won — collect them all to complete your OzBargain lifestyle.

Finally the grand prizes — OzBargain will be giving away some Next Gen game consoles, i.e. Sony PlayStation 5 (disc and digital edition), Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Do note that for PS5 and XSX — I might not be able to deliver those straight away, but rather a promise that OzBargain will get the winners a console sometime this year, as hunting them down at RRP can be difficult.

Since Automotive forum has been OzBargain's most popular forum with all the insurance and car accident advice requests, I thought we'll give away some car related prizes as well — Supercars — Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Sian and a few others. In LEGO though.

Here is the list:

  • 50x Prezzee eGift Card $25
  • 20x Prezzee eGift Card $50
  • 10x Prezzee eGift Card $100 (2 parts)
  • 50x OzBargain T-shirt
  • 50x OzBargain Hoodie
  • PlayStation 5 (3 parts)
  • PlayStation 5 Digital Edition (3 parts)
  • Xbox Series X (3 parts)
  • Xbox Series S (3 parts)
  • LEGO 42083 Bugatti Chiron (3 parts)
  • LEGO 42115 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 (3 parts)
  • LEGO 24110 Land Rover Defender (3 parts)
  • LEGO 10252 Volkswagen Beetle (3 parts)
  • LEGO 42096 Technic Porsche 911 RSR (3 parts)
  • LEGO 42107 Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R (2 parts)

For multi-part prizes, usually the last part would be more rare. For example there will be 3x PlayStation 5 Part 1 & 3x PlayStation 5 Part 2 in the wild during the hunt, but there will only be one Part 3, as there will only be one prize. And for game consoles & LEGO set, the final part will be hidden on specific pages on OzBargain, which the hint will be revealed at set hours on 24 June.


Official starting time for OzBargain EoFY 2021 Treasure Hunt is Wednesday 23 June 2021 at 12:00PM, and will conclude at Friday 25 June 2020 at 10:00AM. Most prizes will be released before the evening of Thursday 24 June, but and the extra time will allow trading to take place.

Participation Eligibility

OzBargain Treasure Hunt is open to OzBargain members, and

  • You are not currently in penalty box
  • Your account was created before this post. I am blocking new accounts from accessing the treasure hunt to stop people creating multiple accounts to game the system.

Also any attempt of scripting / gaming the system would result your account(s) banned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is adblocker okay?

Yes, prizes will still show up when you use adblocker on OzBargain.

Q: Is mobile okay?

Yes, mobile browsers should not have any issue.

Q: Is dark mode okay?


Q: Where do the prizes pop up?

Most will pop up on random pages throughout the OzBargain website.

  • OzBargain front page
  • OzBargain new deals page
  • Individual page for deals (including expired), competitions or forum topics. They need to have 10 or more comments (to make the page long enough).

It will always be below the fold, i.e. requiring you to scroll down at least one full page. It pops up when the page is loaded, but will disappear after 20 seconds. Whether a prize will popup on a page is governed by probability — most prizes have low probability (0.5% to 1%) of chance popping up on a page. Some prizes have high probability but will only appear on specific pages. Please see "Timeline" above for those scheduled drops and hints on their locations.

Q: I am getting error "This item has already been claimed" when I try to click on Claim This button! What's going on?

A prize can simultaneously pop up on many ozbargainers' browsers, but only the first person clicking on "Claim This" will actually add the prize to his/her inventory. Others will get the error message after clicking on "Claim This" button. It's like multiple people can simultaneous spot a $50 notes on the floor, but only the first person who takes the action to pick it up can claim it.


  • Being prepared here - so. PS5 was announced on Jun 12, 2020 - so on this day everyone talked about the switch? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/544199

  • +1

    Finally Won a ChupaChup LollyPop !

  • Location for LEGO 42083 Bugatti Chiron (3/3)

    What was OzBargain's most voted car deal?

    Hint: 2.x second 0-100km/h

  • Bugger, got the treasure hunt…clicked on it…….boom, already claimed

    • On the link above? How long ago!?

      • Yep, about 4 minutes ago. Guess it's the luck of the draw

        • 4 mins ago! I was on there 14 mins ago refreshed 10 times, gave up and thought it was gone!

          • @Mintee: I keep checking the 'Active' items to see if there's still items to be grabbed. I also see that sometimes it goes back up from 0, but never found them after that,

  • +4

    i think i will just be happy with my ozbargain t-shirt and call it a day….

  • 15 inactive prizes with 1 major left. Big night it seems!

  • +5

    I think they need to do a random generator type competition next time - would love to see a different format in the future

  • +1

    Comeon team! The big one, I'm warming up my fingers!

  • Location for PlayStation 5 (3/3)

    Which product from Sony has the most deal posts on OzBargain, and which deal received the most votes?

    Hint: It's a 10 year old bundle deal that included that product, which is an older generation of the treasure hunt prize here.

    • Maybe this one?

      Someone's got it!

      • I see a ps4 bundle with 461 likes!!

        • 10 year old bundle deal

        • ps4? but wouldnt be from 10 years ago then.

          • @Dowhatuwant: Oh i understood that as the prudct being 10 years old…. fml cuz a generation older is ps4.

        • First of all,

          Which product from Sony has the most deal posts on OzBargain?

          That would be PlayStation 3, out of all deals featuring Sony products on OzBargain. And

          which deal received the most votes?

          rompastompa linked deal is the most voted PlayStation 3 deal. The hint there "10 year old bundle" should already rule out PS4.

      • I think it was that one, PS4's aren't technically 10 years old

        • This is why I did bad in exams at school because I never read the questions gg to all

    • Which deal was it? I thought I found a PS4 deal with more votes than the PS3 deal posted above there^. But that PS3 deal fits Scotty's hint… hmm…

      • Ahhh most deal posts! Not votes. Dammmnnn

  • Assume I need to disable adblocker right? Otherwise it wouldn't popup?

    Saw the answer

    Q: Is adblocker okay?

    Yes, prizes will still show up when you use adblocker on OzBargain.

    Thank you again scotty & the team for another refreshing day that is Treasure Hunt!

    Look forward for another in 6 months time :)

    • Not sure about 6 months time :) But maybe we could just run some random give away with smaller prizes every now and then. I definitely need to do something about people opening multiple windows and hammering the F5 key — maybe some kind of penalty when we detect someone is trying to refresh the page.

      And from the logs I see there are a few groups of syndicates, and there might be some ghost accounts that we have detected. The moderators might have already banned some. So if your account has been banned, but you can explain that your account is not a ghost account of another account — please sort this out with the moderators tonight. Otherwise I'll be dropping all prizes linked to accounts in penalty box back into the pool, for other people to claim.

      • Maybe have it as a ticket / lottery allowing more people to find it. And one of the mods randomly selecting a ticket number for prizes.

        Also some restrictions, like only members of 1+ months

        Or tier’d prizes

        Ie. more comment/ deals you’ve posted, higher chance to win

        • -1

          Main prize winner: jv
          Second prize winner: spackbace

      • Cough cough…

        • How many windows and how often were you F5ing? I was F5ing today and got nothing. Got a couple early yesterday though.

          • +2

            @mapax: 5 windows, probably 3 F5/sec. Found 3 item today, yesterday was about 12-14. Probably did 2000+ clicks in total. Hope I don't get arthritis.

            • @MagicMushroom: Lol, I don’t think my computer or internet are fast enough for 3 per second.

      • Is the rest of the LEGO 42083 Bugatti Chiron (1/3) held by people in the penalty box?

  • Well considering I cant win the ps5 anymore throwing in my t-shirt for the hunt and will be content with the hoodie :) Good luck!

  • +1

    haven't got much, just a hoodie and a 50$ gift card.

    but it was fun, loved the competition, thanks scotty.

    I got a playstation 5 part1/3 , whoever got the part3 send me anything and I will give you mine.

  • From all this time on ozbargin I have never been able to see a banner… Are most people just f5 ing in the last comment section - bottom of the page?

    edit: where should i be looking?

    edit: starting to feel like this isn't real…

  • +1

    How do you sort by popularity and date, just the year?

  • +2

    Thanks to Scotty for running this. And thanks to MagicMushroom for the tips which enabled me to finally find some items and fill up my inventory without too much effort. 5 or so mins of refreshing every hour or so.

  • As above poster has said, thank you both to Scotty and MagicMushroom. Legends in their own rights.

  • More tshirts or hoodies = more free advertising and more happy hunters

    Max it at 1 per user and everyone wins

  • Thanks for the fun day Scotty! Totally stoked to have scored a Lego set & t-shirt. Never knew I needed a Zoom H6 6-Track Portable Recorder until today either hahaha

  • +1

    Thanks Scotty and the team.

    Spent my whole day on ozbargain instead of working, luckily we work from home these days 😂.

    Have only the 2nd part of the 100$ gift card. Anyone with the first part wanna do a 50/50?

    • Yes, I'm on the marketplace. Can give you a $50 voucher.

      • Hey mate, looks like we have the same part of the voucher :(.

        • Ah, right thought you had 2/2.

          • @NigelTufnel: oh wait I have Prezzee eGift Card $100 (1/2)

            So only have the first part, sorry for the confusion, the fading part on the image confused me.

            • @Jayjay93: I don't get why there's so many more part 1s on the marketplace…
              You'd think it would be easy to swap. Why are peoe holding onto 2/2 when it's useless without 1?

              • @NigelTufnel: @NigelTufnel Yep no clue.

                I thought $100 voucher would be 10 parts of 1/2 and 10 parts of 2/2, but maybe there is more first part as @scotty mentioned the last part is more rare.

                "For multi-part prizes, usually the last part would be more rare"

                But I thought it would only applied on the unique item (PS5 / Xbox & Lego)

                • @Jayjay93: I thought that would be the probability of appearing, but they should all have been claimed now, unless they are the 2 that are still out there…

  • +2

    The whole card thing (for high-value prizes), and trading system is pretty awesome. I just believe the way of obtaining the cards could of been done better (No idea how lol)

  • +2

    I have all 3 parts of my prize now, do i need to do anything else or just wait?

    • Yup just wait. After 10AM tomorrow, there will be an address form on the marketplace page for those who have won prizes.

  • +2

    Shirt and gift card so I'm happy. No longer have the time to continue on so good luck everyone else!

    • All gone now anyway.

      • Ah so it is. Selling my Xbox One S part last minute was a good investment then!

      • +1

        Finished indeed.

        Might need a new F5 key - lol

        scotty should give out replacement keyboards next time ;)

        • It would be interesting to see how many F5s were clicked in total.

  • Anyone with LEGO 42083 Bugatti Chiron (1/3)?

  • +2

    Aside from the hints, are the rest of the locations random? Do I just click around till I find one? cause I think I am not understanding it and I feel like a chicken running around without a head.

  • Got me a hoodie and t-shirt, can't wait :D Thanks Scotty!

    • +4

      Next year Ozbargain track pants, yeah @Scotty?

  • +3

    Appreciate the give away, thanks :) Although, not really sure how you plan to send me 1/3 of an Xbox S, seems like a waste to hack one up…. j/k :p

  • +1

    Bah! The one thing I need to work out a trade for the user doesn’t accept messages!

  • I only have the 1st part of the $100 Prezzee… anyone have the 2nd part and wanna do a 50/50?

    • No longer an option, was PM'd by someone willing to do this.

  • +4

    Is there anyone who missed out completely and would like a tshirt? :)

  • Let’s ask the real questions… what are the hoodies going to have on the back?

    • It's just logo on the front & nothing at the back. It's just first production — might consider asking the community for design later on. However it's a lot costlier than t-shirts in production & postage
