Hot Topic Launches Catch the Golden Snitch Contest
July 14, 2009, 09:17 AM
At midnight tonight (12:01 AM July 15), and open all day long for the next 24 hours, fans will be able to enter the new Hot Topic "Catch the Golden Snitch" contest. At this time, a golden snitch will be hidden somewhere on Hottopic.com. Find and catch the elusive golden fellow for a chance to win a $100 gift card to the store, with the snitch to change location every 15 minutes during the day and a new winner announced each hour. One Grand Prize winner will be selected from those 24 hourly winners to receive a $1,000 Hot Topic gift card and a Harry Potter merch prize pack. This contest is open to those who are registered Hot Topic members (Free) with registration open at this link. Good Luck!
Be sure to check out all the Hot Topic Harry Potter items available here.
I was able to catch the snitch. Once you find it and catch it, you then have the opportunity to sign up to win the hourly prize and then also entered into the grand prize drawing. Everyone cross your fingers for me. : )
I did not win the hour that I caught snitch the first time. : ( But, I managed to find it and catch is again this hour, so in need of some Felix Feliscis about now. Just to clarify, I realized that only the 24 winners from each hour are entered for the grand prize. Also, in the fine print there is a mail in contest where, if someone could get their postcard postmarked by today, they could also win one of the gift cards (but, sadly, not the grand prize.)
I found it once, but when I tried to catch it it was impossible. I clicked it several times but it never did anything (I know I clicked it, I could see the mouse click it…)
