  • fairybelle
    Buckscoop is about to turn two Its been that long, yes its true Because October is the time For big birthday celebrations for you! OK, thats all i could come up with... *blush* I need to be in hiding too
  • lilpretzel
    OMG!!! These are all BRILLIANT!! It's going to be sooooo HARD to choose a winner. :)
  • leny
    Whenever I'm feeling like I need to shop, Buckscoop is always my first stop. Hundreds of great merchants offering great cash back rates, And many people in the forum, with which I've become good mates. I will never need to pay full price again, No way Jack, As Buckscoop will always give me some nice cash back. And what's even more, is Buckscoop is turning two, We have to wonder, what more trouble we will get up to. More great deals and more fun than any other site could be, It's members are always getting something free! The variety is massive, and prices get a great slash, I wonder how I ever survived on ****cash!

    I think these are all that offer $10.00 Vouchers. Chaos CD WOW Break of Day Deals Direct Play4Me If anyone else can find another Bucky merchant that will offer a $10.00 voucher let us know. :)
  • queenshrew
    I have a question - what if the item includes 2x, 3x, 4x etc items. Is it calculated as 1 or 2,3,4?
  • nod
    Is is the TOTAL number of items So if you buy a pack of 3 then the total for that will be 3 BUT if you take it to extremes with a packet of 100 pegs (for example) then this will NOT be included
  • golfwidow
    The top one may be possible for me. My problem is I am going to be in the picture *gulp* :o so I need someone to take it when we are in a place where people will notice. Might have to take a trip to see my sis this afternoon :)
  • melissanj
    hmm how do i change the date on the photo i posted?? :P do you think anyone would notice:twisted:
  • nod
    mmmm.... Too late. You let the cat out of the bag :D

    haha mel :D Nice try ;)
  • melissanj
    lol cant say i didnt try!!
  • Keeys
    I'm going to by a printer tomorrow night and am hoping to get my pic done this weekend fingers crossed the kids will go along with my idea ;)
  • craftykiwi
    Just popped up my entry for the pic comp. Not overly exciting but have been busy and running out of time and ideas! But we all have something with Buckscoop on (are normally quite reserved people so something different for us - must be the effect Buckscoop has on people!!) and although you can't see it more Buckscoop logos on the back - flags and logos on the brim and back of the hat.
  • leny
    I'm assuming items like the OO.com.au sold out slam dunk are not included.
  • leny
    By that I mean sold out items in general. :D
  • nod
    well ... in an ideal world they would need to be in stock yes :)
  • leny
    So essentially, you are not allowed multi packs at all? Or in what sense should we take it.
  • queenshrew
    leny;67365
    So essentially, you are not allowed multi packs at all? Or in what sense should we take it.
    I know.. I'm so confused about what's allowed and what's not.. :confused:
  • admin EDITOR
    :) - dont be.... You are allowed multi packs, your not allowed multiple multi packs (within reason). So the point of the game is to have a chuckle at how people came up with the list and whats on it. If you go out and select 25 packets of $2 jelly beans (31 beans per pack) its pretty boring and not really in the spirit of stuffing around but if you have 1 pack of them in your list (which would bolster your count) then ten brownie points to you. Besides - your going to have fun trying to convince us that each packet of jelly beans contains exactly 31 beans .... Inventive is good and will get lots of chuckles :)
  • admin EDITOR

    Did anyone ask you what the heck a bargain junky was crafty ?
  • nod
    leny;67365
    So essentially, you are not allowed multi packs at all? Or in what sense should we take it.
    For example if you found a 6 pack or something then we would allow that but if you are looking at a wad of 100 dvds then no that is not allowed :) Send in your entry and I will advise if something is not allowed - you then have one more shot at it
  • nod
    So people have a number to work with: [SIZE=4]You can have a max of 30 items in one pack... no more than that[/SIZE] Thought I was clear but with this new rule there should be no confusion

    No, but when that busker started calling it out it sort of sounded like there was a different connotation. :whistling:

    Was the good news to do with the award you were nominated for Leny? Do hope so. Thanks Nod for the prize, but sorry to hear you're not well. (Mustn't be good if you're talking about yourself in the 3rd person!) Take care of yourself and hope you're feeling better soon.

Record the url for that product and the cost 2. You need to head to the merchant that starts with the letter which is the 7th letter in the alphabet. Clue: Mr Magoo needed their help Click through to the merchants page and you need to collect the image logo for the merchant and pop it in your treasure hunt bag Next clue will appear in a few hours... good luck ..... you don't need to PM me with your answers until the end :)[/SIZE][/FONT]

    Good evening, all. I came late to this today & was wondering if the item we are searching for would still be appearing on the front page of this merchants site? I see something colourful, but was thinking of an artist who's name is colourful, but isn't on the front page. Thanks :)

  • craftykiwi
    Couldn't work out what was cute so have just guessed. Maybe I'm on the wrong path!
  • nod
    Ok so we have 3 submissions and I am afraid that as yet we do not have a winner... might want to check your answers people
  • nod
    Clue: The brand is a beverage
  • bt34
    I'm stuck on clue 2 and as a result clue 3.
  • craftykiwi
    Got the right ad then but not sure if that helps.
  • Wally
    hmmm words Cute and Colourful might see me undone methinks!
  • craftykiwi
    Yes I couldn't work out what was defined as cute either.
  • craftykiwi
    Anyone got it right yet Nod?
  • Wally
    Heh .. Long wait till 6pm ADST to find out :D btw .. does anyone think the song "D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F." is c ol o u r f u l !? :rolleyes::D
  • queenshrew
    Soo how's everyone going? lol I'm still not sure if I should participate. How many tries do you get? lol
  • queenshrew
    hrm..reading the whole thread has now given me a headache lol.. Sounds like a complicated thing.. Can the next challenge be that we just go shopping and see who spends the most instead and wins? :p
  • queenshrew
    ok am I the only person on here lol.. I'm at the last clue and am not sure what's 'cute' :o Is the picture meant to be any picture within the thread or has to be the one posted by the OP on the 1st post?
  • Wally
    Although one must be able to be obtuse with some clues don't think it pays to overthink them either
  • nod
    you can't miss the picture when you see it. It is completely irrelevant to the deal post. The brand appears in the title
  • ScarletRubies
    Cool - does that mean I got it right? :) I am *so* out of practise!!!
  • craftykiwi
    And if I'm right it is 'cute' too in the real sense of the word. No mystery just a tricky way of finding it!
  • nod
    Wally;67640
    Although one must be able to be obtuse with some clues don't think it pays to overthink them either

It's not very Brad-like to post a picture of 2 donkeys lol! Or did he...? He amazes me all the time with his bargains.. never know about him..lol

    What link was used to find coke? Didn't know what to look for. Didn't help to have adblock on.

    I mean what url was used to find the ad for coke.
  • Wally
    Unless he has designed his own search platform for the Buckscoop site .. I think he must have manually gone thru the whole Hot Deals listings till he found it .. frightening isn't it! heh nevertheless I still think it bears repeating .. Pink is not as colourful as Rodney Rude! he he

    The coke logo was off Flikr

    I mean what url was used to find the ad for coke.
    hi bt34, I found the coke ad on the flickr website. It's on the first page. There's an ad on the bottom right. It changes everytime you refresh the page - most of the time it shows Canon, but nod did say it's a beverage so I refreshed until I found a beverage, which so happens to be Coca Cola brand :p --- ETA: bah, sniped by nod.. lol :D
  • Wally
    Adblock wouldn't have allowed Bt34 to see the advert on the flickr.com homepage it was a flash based rotational ad served from ds.serving-sys.com gotta surf in the wild & obtuse cyberspace to have a chance here heh!
  • bt34
    I did go to the flickr site, but as Wally said, adblock blocked it. Took me a while to figure it out, but when I turned off adblock could only see the Canon add. And I did go there 3-4 times, each time only showing Canon Pixma add.
  • bt34
    Thanks nod, for putting together a challenging puzzle. Really enjoyed it!
  • geo78
    thanks all. it was a challenging one. i went with canon first, but couldn't find any cute pic, only some "smart-ass" emoticons :) but by searching for coke, i managed to find the real cute piccie :) thanks nod for a fun "hunt"...
  • leny
    Congrats geo (where do you find the time). :)
  • craftykiwi
    Well done! I got the cute pic after scouring for ages under Coca Cola and then shifting to Coke. But missed out on the item made by a colourful artist. Not the one Wally thought of, but the Ministry of Sounds very colourful album cover. Just goes to show how different we all think reading the clues. Another great game Nod. Many thanks.
  • golfwidow
    I went away for the weekend and missed the last bits. I had it all right for the first 4 :) Congrats Geo
  • ScarletRubies
    My first thought was of Pink wrt the first q, but there was nothing of hers on the front page... As for the Coke/Coca Cola thing, that's a bit of a stretch, methinks. The clue was to find a deal for that brand, not for pizza! (Not that I'm bitter. Not at all...) :) Never mind! I might get over it in time, and if I were given a consolation prize (like a groovy red iPod).

What do you think?
