Happy 5th Birthday Bargainmoose! Let's Hunt For Pirate Treasure!

20 August 2013

Hey Moosers! Did you know that this week, Bargainmoose celebrates its 5th birthday? I mentioned it in our weekly email newsletter on Monday and told you to keep your eyes out for a fantastic contest announcement. This is it - our Pirate Treasure Hunt! Starting tomorrow (Wednesday 21st August 2013), we're going to hold a series of five 48 hour treasure hunt contests. In each one, we will be giving away a brand new Apple iPad Mini, and 2x $50 Amazon.ca vouchers.

And, through the course of the 10 day event, we'll also be giving out random pirate loot throughout the days. These spot contests will be very short, so make sure and stop by the Bargainmoose blog a few times a day to make sure you don't miss out on the treasures, me hearties.

Therefore, total loot available for the hunting Moosers:

  • 5x iPad minis
  • 10x $50 Amazon.ca vouchers
  • Mystery spot prizes


P.S. Feel free to leave a comment below... you never know what might happen if you do. ;)
