Snatch an Extended Summer – The Reveal…

Snatch Fam,

First thing – big up all you kind folks for sharing your answers to our mystery trip over Facebook and Twitter – we didn’t see that one coming.

Now for the news you’ve been waiting for. Deep breath…

The winner is….

KAYLEIGH1790

Pack your bags, grab your passport and head for the airport – you deserve it maestro.

For those of you who didn’t get it, keep reading to find out how that clever clogs got it.

The answer that you’ve been looking for is….. Bologna!

Firstly, the Towers of Bologna are two of the final towers left standing in the city. At the start of the 20th Century there were hundreds of towers, thought to be a symbol of power among aristocratic families.

Secondly, the university of Bologna is the oldest in Europe. Simple, right? The oldest university in the world is in Morocco, if you’re interested.

Lastly, the clue is in the name…spaghetti bolognese of course!

You learn something every day…

So, big congrats to KAYLEIGH1790, you nailed it.

To the rest of you, better luck next time.

Mystery Destination

Ahoy Snatcher,

Fancy flying off somewhere sunny? Course you do. It’s getting darker earlier and increasingly chilly.

If you want to Snatch £400 worth of flight vouchers for a trip away to your dream destination, there’s just one thing we need you to do:

Beginning tomorrow, we’ll be releasing clues as to the whereabouts of a particular place. There will be 3 clues, all leading to the same place. All you have to do is figure out where in the world we’re talking about.

The best thing about this? You don’t even need to Snatch the clues enter. We’ll be sharing the page to submit your answer via Twitter and Facebook so make sure you’re following.

Remember, it’s not in your interest to share your clues or answers with either friends or foes. You and you alone deserve this trip, right? So keep your answers to yourself 😉

This will not follow the usual redemption mechanic. All you will need to do is input your details including your answer to the mystery location into a Google Form which will go live on Sunday (it will close at midnight on Monday). We will then be picking a winner at random from those who have correctly inputted their details as well as the right answer into the form.

You’re not on holiday yet, replace that straw hat and cocktail umbrella with a deerstalker and pipe – you’ve got detective work to do.

Good luck,

Team Snatch

Great British Snatch-Off

Everyone has a recipe book at home and let’s be honest, they’re all fairly similar. Think of this as a Snatching recipe to win yourself that fab food mixer.

Step 1: Step out and Snatch.

Step 2: Snatch 3 fundamental baking ingredients in the right quantity (hint; it’s 1 part flour, 1 part eggs and 1 part sugar).

Step 3: Make sure all 3 are in the mixing bowl (aka ensure ALL 3 ingredients and REDEEMED by the competition deadline, Midnight Monday 4th September).

If you don’t, you could end up with a soggy bottom. No one wants that.

Step 4: If you’ve completed steps 1, 2 and 3 correctly, your cake is now in the oven and it’s a waiting game. We will be announcing our winners of the food mixers on the morning of Tuesday 5th September, so keep an eye out on our social channels for the big reveal.

We have plenty of other great baking prizes to help you channel your inner Paul Hollywood. Snatch yourself yourself a Lakeland gift card, Cath Kidston vouchers, Betty’s gift selection hampers, M&S e-gift cards and even some Millie’s Cookies if you are more into the eating than the baking.

Ready, set, SNATCH!

GOLD! Always believe in your soul…

Well, hello Snatchers,

We’ll get straight to the point, and it’s a big gold tipped point this time, coming at you in 3 parts.

Firstly, you know how we’ve only been giving out £50 Golden Parcels? Well, they’re not going anywhere. Here to stay. Part of the family now.

BUT. We’ve taken that £50 AND RAISED it. In other words, expect to see £100 Golden Parcels alongside the regular £50s.

Managed to digest that news yet? Ok, the second bit of news is that £1 Golden Parcels are making a comeback. The humble £1 returns, but this time it demands a little more respect.

Because this bit is a genuine game changer: Each week one of our £1 winners will be chosen to win another £100! That’s the chance to turn those 100 pennies into 100 pounds. Pretty great, huh?

Talk about turning water into wine…So, in order to be in with a chance of a big old upgrade you MUST redeem your £1 win.

That’s it for now, just keep Snatching and you could soon be £100 better off.

Wake Up Week

Sleepy Monday? Yeah, we know.

That’s why it’s Wake Up Week here at Snatch HQ.

We’ve got a whole host of prizes to make your mornings great.

Are you one for jumping out of bed and straight into work? In that case, Snatch an e-gift card to Costa Coffee for a tasty roast on the go.

And if a gentle grind in your kitchen is more your scene, then we’ve got a Nespresso coffee machine with your name on it, coming very soon.

So to guarantee yourself a great morning, make sure you Snatch noon and night all this week.

No more Sleepy Snatchers please…

Love,

Snatch HQ

Tech Update: Golden Parcels

Dearest Snatchers,

We know how much you love Golden Parcels – almost as much as we love paying you the money

We’ve given away plenty of cash so far – making you guys thousands (and ones) of pounds richer. And we aren’t stopping anytime soon…

But we are going to be making changes to the way we distribute the money from Golden Parcel wins. This means we need to carry out some infrastructure change to our systems here – and that’s going to mean some delays for you. Because technology isn’t easily fixed, from today there will be a two week delay in us processing Golden Parcel payments.

We are sorry about this – but we do have a work around. We can manually process payments but this will take a couple of days as we will be fixing the system on top of this. If you want this to happen, please email gold@snatchhq.com.

All this work is going to make things better for you – and while it’s annoying, be patient and things will be back to normal in no time at all (well, about two weeks but you know…)

P.S. We are also switching up the cash amounts that go into the Golden Parcels to give you more bang for your buck – all will be revealed very shortly…

 

Top 10 Snatchers Leaderboard

It’s the end of the week, which means only one thing. THE SNATCH LEADERBOARD is here (a day later than usual, but ya know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).  There are some interesting developments and a few new faces taking up those top ten places!

Can we give a warm welcome to RHIRHI, UNLUCKY2 and CMYKLIFE who have defied the odds and beaten some hot competition to make into the top 10!

In 3rd place this week is one of our newbies, CMYKLIFE who has racked up an impressive 508 Snatch points. Welcome to the party, pal.

2nd this week is one of our veteran Snatchers, KILLTOCURE. KTC has scored a tidy 544 points this week. Very nice.

This week’s crown goes to WIKKEDCLOWN who wiped the floor with a scorching 653 Snatch points. That’ll do Clown, that’ll do.

We know that this is a hotly contested leaderboard and that tempers can sometimes flair up, but it’s important to remember that this is just a bit of fun. Being lame to other people about it isn’t cool. Enjoy it and if you think there’s anything we should be looking into just drop us a message in-app.

Top 10 Snatchers Leaderboard

We’re feeling…SNATCHY ALL OVER. Can you believe there has been a whole week since the last Snatchers Leaderboard? A whole week! That’s a lot of time for a lot of Snatching and a lot of time for players to move and shake.

As it’s Thursday, we’ve been tracking our top Snatchers over the past week and we are now ready to reveal our TOP TEN Snatchers. So buckle up and get excited to see who the movers and shakers are this week…

Coming in at number 3 this week, it’s WIKKEDCLOWN with 502 points. WIKKEDCLOWN has gained a massive 7 spots, breaching the top 3 this week after being in 10th place last week. Big well done, you scary, scary, clown.

This week’s runner-up is B00DLE, who jumps from 8 last week to 2 this week. With a point total of 610, B00DLE nestles into the second spot like a cat might nestle into their bed of an evening.

And, this week’s top Snatcher, has retained their number one spot – and in some style. JOSEY69 holds onto their crown this week with 845 points – a massive 235 ahead of second place. That is some Snatching.

Remember to keep up the Snatching and your name could be in the bright lights of the top 10. We will be contacting our winners about their prizes very soon.

Moving? You want to win Just Move In

You may have been lucky enough to win yourself our latest prize – a lifetime Concierge Membership from Just Move In. You might also be wondering just exactly what this all means.

Well don’t worry – here at Snatch we are happy to help out with a bit more information and how you can get the best out of your lifetime membership from Just Move In.

When you are moving house, flat, apartment, tent, there are a lot of things to consider beyond packing all your stuff up and shipping it off to the new place. You have internet providers, energy companies, water people, the Council, and everything else in between to speak to make sure everything transfers smoothly – and you can get started straight away in your new place. And it often feels like a days work just to get this setup – which can cause a bit of a headache…

With the Lifetime Concierge Membership, you can remove the need for painkillers and handover the arduous admin to the guys at Just Move In. They will take your details and speak to all the people you don’t want to – the electric and gas folk, your internet and TV supplier, your water company, the council and even your insurers. Saving you time, money, and that headache. Pretty neat, huh?

What’s more, it’s a lifetime thing – so it will never run out. No matter how many times you move. That’s service.
