Kogan: the clever hunt of a treasure trove of bargains just for you Featured


Ruslan Kogan is our clever countryman, full of e-tail excitement and cunningly clever marketing where if you're a keen detective, you can find a Google Home Mini for $1, AirPods for $5, an iPad for $20, a Dyson V8 for $30 and 16 other hidden super deals.

On the hunt for a bargain so big your wallet won't believe it? Meanwhile, are you good at treasure hunts?

I've often told companies out there that they should do some kind of treasure hunt as a competition, and while I've never said this to Ruslan Kogan, it's clear that great minds think alike.

It's also clear that ideas are incredibly empty when not put to the test, and into action, so it's great to see that one of Australia's great achievers, Ruslan Kogan, is not just a man of action, but a man of great retail and marketing cunning that this clever countryman makes his own luck in the lucky country we live in.

Now you're in luck, with Kogan's "immersive online shopping experience" of "The Great Kogan.com Treasure Hunt" set to start tomorrow, so any and all of us willing to participate and do a bit of searching can score some incredible deals, too.

You see, starting this Wednesday, 7 November at 9am, we're officially told "there will be 20 unique single-use codes scattered throughout the product listing pages on Kogan.com".

"Customers will have the chance to claim insane deals such as Apple Airpods for $5, a Kogan 50" 4K Smart TV for $30, a Google Home Mini for $1, an iPad for $20 and a Dyson V8 vacuum for $30."

"Sound easy? Not really", says Kogan's clever PR people, who note that "Kogan.com offers over 50,000 products across a range of departments, so only quick eyes will claim the prize."

So, how does it work, and what are the deals?

Well, you'll "need to locate the unique codes hidden throughout Kogan.com and be the first to check out with the code to claim the deal. You snooze, you lose so make sure you keep your eyes peeled".

The deals are listed below, as well as the eyewateringly cheap prices they'll go for, but only if you're first to find the codes, which bodes well for those who do!

Want a hint for your hunt?

All you need to do is to "subscribe to the Kogan.com newsletter here to receive hints about the location of codes".
