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 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!

HAVE FUN WHEN YOU SEE HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE! :DAvatar ImageGF_of_Seamus says: yeah that stinks since I will be in a theatre. oh well, this is a nice present for people who can't get midnight ticketsAvatar Imagesushita says: That's rather annoying. I'm gonna be too busy watching the movie.Avatar Image9and3qtrs says: Yay, maybe I'll win!Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: I would hope the contest would last longer bc half the harry potter fans in the world will be in the movie theater at that time.Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: Wait... it says the snitch changes location every hour... so that means it will be a longer contest.Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: I'll be at the theatre. Well, what time zone is that? Because maybe I'll be home by then... I think Hufflepuffs have a clear, unfair advantage over us all in this. They're going to have no trouble at all FINDing the snitch.Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: Well, it looks like it's going to be happening for the whole day...with one winner every hour. ErinAvatar ImageHydrus says: It changes positions every hour for 24. We can stay up and still get about 21 chances, right? (After the movie lets out)Avatar Imagerichkid50000 says: what time zone is it?Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: sweet!!!Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: im going to be watching the movie lame!!! oh nevermind Hydrus is right Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: Just 13 more hours.

Limited funds had me deliberating between two t-shirts. If I had a $100 gift card I could go HP merch crazy. Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: Well, kind of crazy. Those shirts are *expensive*!Avatar ImageKDumbledore says: So excited for tonight!

Agh anyone know which time zone that is? I'm guessing EST?Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: What an interesting idea! I like it. I'll definitely be doing this :DAvatar Imageempressa says: no midnight showings here (at least, i don't think there are...) i'll be trying to catch the snitch.Avatar Imageliv-wa says: OMG....I have the page and I can't click on the stupid snitch!!! It is aggravating me to no end...Avatar ImageInai says: How are you supposed to catch it, anyway!? I've clicked on it so many times, ant it doesn't work..DXAvatar ImageeiVega says: YAY! I JUST WON THE PRIZE FOR THIS HOUR! THANK YOU SO MUCH LEAKY FOR TELLING ME ABOUT THE CONTEST!!! :DAvatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: 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. : )Avatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: 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.)Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: 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...) :\Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: it'll would be cool to winAvatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Squee!
