Easter Egg Hunt

To all the egg hunters:

The 13th Annual Easter Egg Hunt ended on Sunday, April 17th. Congratulations to all the hunters that were on the leaderboard at the end of the contest! It took a lot of determination, and your $20 Gift Certificates are well-deserved :) The gift certificates were sent to your e-mail addresses this afternoon, so keep an eye on your e-mail for the details.

A special congratulations is in order for Jamee B, who was our randomly-selected Grand Prize winner from the Top 25 on the leaderboard! Jamee has been a customer since 2018, and is a veteran egg hunter... Congratulations again!

Here are a few fun facts from this year's hunt:

  • No individual found all 300 eggs... but each of the 300 eggs was found by multiple different hunters!
  • Over 134,000 eggs were found in total, which is a bit more than last year.
  • There were 21 eggs that found by fewer than 100 hunters. Those must have been pretty sneaky!
  • There was some chatter about tiny eggs this year. There were 4 eggs that were a little smaller than usual—but they were only about 15% smaller than other small eggs you're used to. We wouldn't think of going any smaller than that :)
  • The most commonly-found egg was the one right at the top of the main Gemstone Beads page (for the second year in a row!)

We say this every year, but we truly mean it: Thank you for making the hunt a big success again. Whether you found one egg or made it to the Top 25, we're eternally grateful for the time you spend hunting for those pesky little eggs. You are all all-stars in our eyes.

Last, but not least, we really hope you had fun! If you ever have any feedback to share (good or bad), we'd love to hear it :)

The Breakdown

Where are all the eggs? Read below for information about where the eggs are hiding:

We've scattered the eggs in all corners of our website, with some exceptions. You won't need to hunt on pages under the following menus: "Supplies", "Artists & Brands", "Deals", "What's Fresh" (New Products, Back in Stock, etc), or the "Create & Learn" menu (including Fresh Picks and the Design Gallery). When you try and access those 5 menus in the green bar, there is a friendly reminder in the drop-down that there aren't any eggs there. Everywhere else is fair game, and you need to be logged into your account to see all the eggs. For more specifics on where the eggs can be, see the FAQ below.

How hard is the hunt?

0-50 Eggs

Even if you're just a casual egg hunter, finding 50 shouldn't be much of a problem. In fact, you can find a few dozen eggs from just one click away from the LimaBeads.com home page.

50-100 Eggs

If you're going for the top prize levels, you'll have to be prepared to dig a little deeper to find the eggs. You don't need to drive yourself insane (see below), but your family might wonder where you disappeared to.

100-300 Eggs

Once you've found 100 eggs, it's all about your competitive spirit. If you want to stay on the leaderboard, or if you have your eye on some great prizes, you'll need to scour every last little page on the site! Warning, craziness may ensue :)

    @Netty Preat I didn’t find more than a couple in the headers, but I found a few in the green section. One was so far in the lower left hand corner that it took me three times of trying to click on it before it would register.

    Thanks, Lima for another fun hunt!

    Thank you Lima Bead crew-it was a difficult hunt this year, but always worth it! I quit on Friday after only finding 159 eggs, then read the blog Friday night and found out about the technical issues. Started back into the hunt Saturday and found so many more eggs-even got into the top 25! Wasn’t eggspecting to stay up there, but woke up Monday morning to find I was still barely in the top 25! It was well worth it, especially since I found my last 3 eggs around midnight Easter Sunday! Thanks to all for making this such a fun experience. See you next year!

    Snowy says:

    Thank you for having the Egg hunt. I spent hours yesterday and could not find any so just gave up. I clicked and clicked but bogged down my computer lol I thought we did not need to click through “see more” or click on each individual item…but after not finding more than 63 eggs I started to do that………guess I missed out. Congrats to the winners and thank you Lima for an incredible event.

    Thank you to the whole Lime team who puts this hunt together every year! From the beginning of the year, in the back of my mind, I start getting excited about the upcoming hunt. Yes, I’m addicted, but at least I know I’m not alone!

    Thank you, too, for eliminating some of the seed bead sections. A request for next year: could you do the same for gemstones? For example, the chakras pages are all linked to within gemstones, and even though they are housed in a different section, it’s not one of the excluded ones like create and learn. Also, I never know if I need to expand all the gemstones under round until I’m done and haven’t found a single egg! I would also love clarification on whether the ‘see all xx’ related items links and zoom on chains which I can’t do on a tablet) are covered in the detailed image popup exclusion or not. And I second the request for size examples.

    I thought I had escaped the missing egg issue, but after stalling at 263 when I finished checking everything, I started over and found another 20 eggs, barely getting me into the top 25, which I didn’t expect. Thanks for the tip to focus on list pages rather than item pages.

    All in all, though, I really just want you to know how grateful I am for the hunt each year!

    Thanks again to team Lima Beads! I hope you all had an eggxtravaganza Easter! As in every year my family thinks I am nuts for doing this, but I find in the end it’s very rewarding. Kudos to all of you!

    The end of another hunt.
    House = disaster
    Fridge = empty
    Laundry = piled up
    A$$ = wider
    Hand/wrist = sore
    Egg glitch = frustration
    Still a great hunt. Thanks and will see everyone next year!

    Steve says:

    Good morning, all :) Your comments the morning after the hunt are always heartwarming. We will be doing the grand prize drawing and sending out gift certificates later today–and we’ll have an updated posted to the main Hunt page within 24 hours.

    We hope that everyone enjoys their prizes–you DEFINITELY earned them this year :) Each hunt has its own unique challenges and new hiding spots but one thing never changes: the diligence of all of you to comb through the website to find those little devils. So thank YOU for a great hunt this year! Stay tuned for an announcement about the grand prize winner, and enjoy your prizes!

Are there eggs hidden in the "additional photos" and other popups?

Just like last year, we did not hide any eggs in the "additional photos" or other similar areas that require an additional click/tap to appear. That means you don't have to click on the links to "see the bigger photo" or "additional photos" (or similar popups) to find any eggs. As we've grown and now carry more products than ever, we felt that it was just too much clicking to find those pesky eggs :)

Are there eggs on "view all" pages?

No, there will not be any eggs on "view all" pages. It is possible that you might find an egg on a "page 2" listing (or page 3, etc). But you don't need to click on any "view all" links.

Will I find eggs by changing the "sort by" option on product listing pages?

No, that will not help you find additional eggs. You will NEVER have to use the sorting menu shown on the right to find eggs. That would just be too cruel :)

Did I just see the same egg in two places?

Our website is pretty big, and there is sometimes more than one way to get to the same product or page. For example, some focal links are listed under the Charms & Pendants menu, but also in the Findings area. Technically, each egg is only in one place, but you can find some of them in multiple ways.

If each egg is only on one "page" of the website, what exactly is a page?

You can think of a page on the website as anything you can get to by clicking a link or a picture. Here are a few examples of different pages that you can find eggs on:

  • The home page
  • Any link you can click on in the green footer of the site
  • Any of our shopping categories (like Gemstone Beads, Clasps, etc)
  • Any page that has listings of products, including pages that you get to by clicking "Next Page" when there are too many products to show on the first page
  • Starting on the Metal Beads page, and filtering down to a particular metal AND style of beads.

Are there any excluded areas?

Yes, there are areas of our website where you won't find any eggs. You don't need to look anywhere under following menus: Supplies, Artists & Brands, Deals, What's Fresh, or Create & Learn.

Do I need to be logged into my account to see all the eggs?

Yes, make sure you are signed into your account when hunting. We need to you sign in so we can keep track of the number of eggs you've found.

The Rules

  • The contest ends at 11:59pm US Pacific time on April 17, 2022 (Easter). This means you need to make sure and do the following by this time:
    • Collect all the eggs you can find.
    • From the Prizes page, add the prize(s) you want to your shopping bag and place your order—all prizes must be redeemed by the end of the contest. These gifts are available while supplies last, so we don't recommend waiting until the end of the hunt to redeem them. Normal shipping rates will apply when placing an order that includes a gift.
    • Watch this page for an announcement about the $250 drawing on Monday, April 18.
  • There are a total of 300 Easter eggs that we've hidden for you to collect. Those are the only ones that count toward the prizes, and you must click on them to collect them. You might see some picture of eggs in promotional materials (like the ones in the grass at the top of this page)... those don't count toward your total.
  • We can't offer rain checks on the prizes, so make sure to place your order when you've unlocked the prizes, because they're only available while supplies last!
  • We think we have enough free beads to go around... but in case we run short, we reserve the right to substitute a product of equal value as your prize (hey, it's free, right?) :). We also reserve the right to update this list of rules if it needs clarification later.
  • Normal shipping rates apply. As much as we'd like to, we just can't afford to give away free beads AND ship them for free, too. If you add your prizes to an order over $40, you'll get the same free shipping you always get (in the U.S.). For international orders, or if your U.S. order is under $40, normal shipping rates will apply.
  • Please don't share the locations of the eggs. This ruins the fun for everyone :) Also, you must find the eggs yourself--you can't have a robot (or a computer) do it for you. Location sharers and robots will be disqualified from winning prizes! Gotta keep it fair for the rest of us!
  • The most important rule: have fun!
