Treasure Hunts are being planned for these and other areas. If you would like to see a treasure hunt in your area, let us know. Hunts take several weeks to coordinate, so be patient and we will alert you when a treasure hunt in your area is activated.
Once an area has at least 36 businesses sponsoring a hunt, you will be able to click on that area and see the names of the businesses that are displaying a clue at their store location.
Must be 18 or older to participate, no purchase needed. Winners agree to allow their photo to be displayed online. Do not tresspass onto private property. Do not dig or destroy landscape. Everyone has the same chance to discover all 12 clues, it is not a matter of luck. The winning hunter will have taken the time to stop by several stores in their area throughout the 6-8 weeks that the hunt is in progress and will have used their awareness of the area to figure out where the treasure will be placed. Do not expect to find the treasure in a store or before the 12th clue is released, it will not be hidden until all 12 clues have been displayed. Not every store is going to post every clue. Some stores will have the same clue for awhile until more clues are added to the mix. So keep checking back to find new clues every 7 to 10 days. Once the 12th clue is displayed, be safe when searching. You will not need to dig, the treasure will not be buried. Do not climb dangerous terrain, the treasure will not be hidden in a dangerous location. Use common sense when searching.
Be aware that more than one area may be having a hunt at the same time. There are separate hunts that have their own set of 12 clues. Be sure you specify which area you are participating in. Each area has it's own $1000 prize. Each new hunt's duration is 6 - 8 weeks from when the first two clues are released, until the last two clues are released. Clues are rotated among the participating stores, but which store gets which clue when is a secret to everyone except the Treasure Hunt Clues Official. A store displays one clue at a time. Do not call stores, they are not allowed to tell clues over the phone. The reason stores are sponsoring the hunt is because they want you to visit them.
The "Online Store Treasure Hunt" is a separate hunt, you will be notified when it begins if you have registered as a Treasure Hunter.
