Win Cupidthulhu's Loot!

Cupidthulhu Pinterest Challenge

Cupidthulhu is out to get you.

UPDATE! This contest is closed; see below for our winners!

Yes, the mythical creature of lore has come out of hiding! With his mighty quiver of tentacle arrows in hand, he will make you fall in love & despair with everything ThinkGeek. Some say it's actually just Timmy wearing a tiny pair of Cthulhu wings and a diaper (which may be 65 - 100% true), but it's more than that. So much more.

Pinterest Challege

His target isn't you this time, but your pinboard! Cupidthulhu is looking to give away $250 worth of ThinkGeek goodies to two lucky entrants. Pin up to $250 of your favorite ThinkGeek products to a Pinterest pinboard titled "ThinkGeek's Cupidthulhu Challenge" and enter the board's URL into our contest form below by 11:59pm ET Thursday, February 7 for a chance to win. On Friday, February 8, Cupidthulhu will randomly choose two pinners who will live happily ever after with free goodies!

The Rules:

  • You must title your pinboard "ThinkGeek's Cupidthulhu Challenge". Please be sure to pin the contest page as well.
  • You must include only ThinkGeek items on the board. That'll just keep things simpler and not confuse the Cupidthulhu. (Woe betide he who confuses Cupidthulhu!)
  • You must have less than $250 worth of items on your pinboard. It doesn't have to be exactly $250--just less. This total does not include shipping, and the best way to total your pinboard is to add the items to your cart and use the total you see there as your guideline.
  • You must enter the URL to your pinboard (for example, http://pinterest.com/thinkgeek/thinkgeek-valentines/) into our form below by 11:59pm ET Thursday, February 7.
  • You must cross your tentacles and pray to Cupidthulhu lest his vengeful arrows of love miss your pinboard.

FINAL UPDATE! The contest is closed and our two lucky random winners blessed by Cupidthulhu's tentacles are Stacy St. John and Monica Romig Green! Monica and Stacy, we'll be in touch via email shortly. Thanks to everyone who participated in this contest--it was our biggest Pinterest contest so far, and if you think we should run one again, let us know in the comments!

In the meantime, you can check our boards on Pinterest and see what Cupidthulhu recommends for <3 Day.


Still have questions? Here are the finer points:

  • You may change your board as many times as you like before the contest deadline, even after you enter via our form, but whatever is there at 11:59pm ET on Thursday, February 7 is what you're entered to win.
  • If you add more than $250 worth of goodies, you won't win.
  • If prices change between now and when the contest ends, we will honor the sale price so your board won't go over $250 total. Cupidthulhu does not tolerate poor addition, but he's not heartless.
  • You cannot pin items already out of stock. If any of the items you pin go out of stock after the contest closes, then you will receive a gift certificate in the amount of that item.
  • If you're outside the US and eligible to enter (check all the countries here), you are very much welcome to enter, but please note that you may be charged customs and handling fees when your goodies arrive. Sorry, but this contest won't cover those costs.
  • Looking for the legalese? You can find it here.

Robotic Duke said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Robotic Duke -- Timmy thanks you for it! ;)
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! Is it supposed to be titled "ThinkGeek's Cupidthulhu Challenge" or "ThinkGeek's Cupidthulhu Challenge."? Page seems to suggest both, but I'm assuming the period is just a grammatical thing.
cheamo said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! @cheamo -- Either way works! We've fixed it to clarify, though. :)
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! can i win if it's just under $250?
brick master said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! I have joined Pinterest just to please Cupidthulhu. I even checked the addition with a wishlist. I pray Cupidthulhu be pleased.
elkedoring said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! @brick master -- Yep! As long as it's $250 or less, you're good :) @elkedoring -- Cupidthulhu appreciates your efforts; he is pleased.
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! How do I pin this page?
Captain Harkness said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! Dear gods, I have a Pinterest. :kills self:
TheDapperCadaver said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Captain Harkness -- You can pin this page by using the "Pin It" Button (http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/ ) or by clicking on the "Add +" button on your Pinterest page.
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! Just finished! I read that you cannot pin out of stock items, but what if (for example) I pinned the superhero footie union suit. I want a XXL in Batman. All of the sizes in superman are sold out. And all of the sizes in batman are sold out, with the exception of the one size that I need. I would (if I won) get the XXL in Batman, correct?
LMK32294 said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! How are sale items handled? Should we be going by the current sale price, or the non-sale price?
Ndoto said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! Nevermind - just re-read the rules and saw that sale prices will be honored. Neat!
Ndoto said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! Which image should I pin?
Captain Harkness said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! @LMK32294 -- Yep! We'd double check the size with you to make sure it's what you want :) @Captain Harkness -- The header image with Timmy is fine!
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 682 days ago.
meaningless icon! Is it OK to include "out of stock" items on the board?
Neli42 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Never mind. Found my answer.
Neli42 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Dear lord cupidchulu please pick me!!!!!
shaynakaruman said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Yay. I just entered the contest and it was hard. If I put everything I wanted into the draw it would have been an ungodly amount of money - and geekery :P
ajnemajrje said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Well, I'm finally glad Pinterest has some use!
beebott said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! I knew having a Pinterest account would one day be a good thing...
jaguerns said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Ok, I read this page a couple times and didn't see an answer... If I want an item, such as oh I don't know.. the Leather Statement Cuffs, there are 3 designs and I like 2. Should I create 2 pins and specify on each pin one of the designs, or do I create 1 pin and specify on both of the designs I like?
JMizzle said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Sad Face. I create a board, then go to enter and Australia isn't on the list. VERY SAD FACE!
KaeVala said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! CRYING BECAUSE NOT 21 YET
Ted-sama said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Sad :( assumed NZ would be listed as a country and spent an hour setting up a pinterest board and picking things.
Amandarama said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Ah man...I just spent all that time creating my board and then I read that out-of-stock items don't count. Oh well, I'll just have to fix it before the deadline.
SiskoFreak said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! how do i pin the contest page?
mcley7 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Done
Scorpious said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! I hope it's all right using your parent to sign up if you're not 21? I'm doing so, but I hope it's fine.
Creeperpeach said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Done and done. My list comes to $249.86 too. I wasn't even trying to be nitpicky, just adding stuff I really wanted! Thanks for the opportunity!
mikejulietpapa said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! No Australia? I almost made an account for that.
Sly25 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Ahhh! So excited! And now I have a cool board. :3
abernathy said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Disappointed I'm going to be 21 in two weeks. Oh well, maybe better luck next tear.
nailgun529 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Finished my board! This is going to be intense! Can't wait! Good luck to everyone! Now it's time to pray to Cupidthulhu!
Amanda08 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! I always said I would never have a pinterest account. Then ThinkGeek came up with this contest. 1 hour later I have a pinterest account, and 3 hours later I have picked out the stuff I want :-) There is way too much fun stuff on this site!
Lindsay4236 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! So I created board and submitted then read out of stock doesnt count. Can I change my submission, can i submit a new board or am I hosed?
piratebrethren said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! If we're wanting a particular size or type of a product, should we be including that in the description box on Pinterest?
DedlyEdly said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Will it email us to let us know we are entered? I thought I hit the button to submit my entry, but I haven't gotten an email confirming. I don't want to hit submit again and be disqualified just in case for entering twice.
Lindsay4236 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! what if you want more than one of an item, how do you pin it properly?
piratebrethren said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! i hope you pick me, i worship at the alter of Cupidthulhu! and thinkgeek! at least 2x a week!
destroyah said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! I won't be 21 for fifteen more days. *sob*
EssayArray said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! @JMizzle -- Either way works! If Cupidthulhu chooses you, then we'll double check with you to make sure :) @mcley7 -- You can pin this page by using the "Pin It" Button (http://pinterest.com/about/goodies/ ) or by clicking on the "Add +" button on your Pinterest page. @Creeperpeach -- Yep, that's fine! @piratebrethren -- You may change your board as many times as you like before the contest deadline, even after you enter via our form, but whatever is there at 11:59pm ET on Thursday, February 7 is what you're entered to win. Regarding your second question, you can just note in the Pinterest description box the quantity you want :) @DedlyEdly -- Yes, please do :) We'll also double check with you to make sure! @Lindsay4236 -- Nope, sorry, there is no email notification; as long as you hit the Submit button, you should be good to go!
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Hi What if i want to pin an item you stock (captain america hoodie) but there is no official Thinkgeek pin for it on pinterest? if i pin an image of the identical hoodie, but shared by somebody else, will it still count?, even if it is the identical one to the one you sell?

Taggz said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Very disappointed that Australian's can't enter this.
AnieMel said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Initial thoughts: OMG THANK YOU CTHULU AND TIMMY. Then, disappointment. Why not Australia? Cthulu and Timmy don't love us. ='(
Ethelith said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! All Hail Timmy Cthulhu! Winning a piece of my heart every step of the way <3
CelestialQueen said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Why is Australia not included in the competition? :-(
ashmouse13 said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! G'day fella's! Why isn't Australia eligible? Would really love to participate! Thinkgeek Rocks!!!
Kigeru said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Yipes! I got copy & paste confounded and mistakenly submitted the URL to all of my boards instead of the URL to specifically my pinboard for the Cupidthulhu Challenge. Is there anyway I can change this, if it matters?
belario said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Question, does the $250 include tax?
Sage Bearer said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Does it count as an animal sacrifice to the Mighty Old One if I accidentally hit a squirrel but yelled "ftaghn" afterward? I'm asking for a friend.
Vodstok said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! I am making a sacrifice to the great Cupidthulhu this morning in hopes that I will at least be considered. This will really make my family's year. May the odds be ever in your favor.
RedQueenYoyo said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Fragpuss -- You should be able to use the "Pin it" button on the product page itself :) ( http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/ea41/ ) @belario -- Hmm, Cupidthulhu will let this slide... this time. @Sage Bearer -- Nope, it does not. Just base it off your subtotal :) @Vodstok -- ...Yes. Only because you yelled "ftaghn," though.
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! To all our friends who are unable to participate: We've asked the legal overlords if more countries can participate in the future, but we're sorry you're unable to right now :( Cupidthulhu sends all his love and despair, but he is sorry your country is not within his tentacle arrows' reach :(
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! Anything to please the almighty Cupidthulhu! (My pinterest followers are going to hate me) :D
MedusaPassion said this 681 days ago.
meaningless icon! This would make a geek girl very very happy

BransonGamer said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! What do you mean I have to be 21 to enter? I do not understand... :[
threaljamesbond said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! May Cupidthulhu inspire me as I fill up my board with awesomeness (to total under $250)
RaDragon said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! Offering submitted to the great Cupidthulhu! I hope I might find favor. :)
queenbzim said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! Arrgh! I entered, but I entered the wrong URL! Can I change it?
JessicaDaphneLuvr said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! @JessicaDaphneLuvr -- Please shoot us a message on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/thinkgeek ) with your name and the correct URL, and we can fix it for you!
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! Thanks KnivesC! Message sent.
JessicaDaphneLuvr said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! How does this work on things we pin with multiple options per page? Like the Toast USB Hub/Flash drives? Do we count the price for all of them or what?
Zaff.Attack said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Zaff.Attack -- Please notate in the Pinterest description box which items you want and the quantity :) Just add in the price of those - no need to do all of them if you don't want them all!
KnivesC (ThinkGeek Staff) said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! if its on sale do we figure it in by the sale price or original price?
The Vogfather said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! You can ship to Belgium but not to the Netherlands? I still don't understand, our country is between Belgium, Germany and the UK. ..
AngelElizabeth said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! This was super fun! Thank you!
RJMartin said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! The 7th is my birthday so I hope I win
80zChyld said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! If we pin something that has more than one variant (specifically, the charm bracelet w/charms), how does that count? I've allowed for all available items in the set minus the two extra chains to count to my total just in case, but I've included in the descriptions what I would and wouldn't want. Thanks!
MMO said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! While getting a total for the items we choose for our board, are we using the original price or sale price (for those items that happen to be on sale)?
Lorax42 said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! Ahh kk, thanks. :3 But I didn't see the age restriction... Nooooooo... >o< ... Maybe my mom would be interested in this. Hmm.
Zaff.Attack said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! I had so much fun ThinkGeeking out my pins! Here's hoping Cupidthulhu is force sensitive...
Pennibear said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! I'm a bit late but not to late, there is hardly anything at Thinkgeek that I don't want, I just have to figure out what I want more. I put prices up and reasons for each item:)
dustmans said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! I think I entered but never got an email or anything saying that my entry was received. How do I know if my entry really went through?
tjachec said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! My tentacles are crossed oh mighty Cupidthulhu!
andagosa said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! I picked three things, something for everyone in my family, including a Portal Cube for my 4-month old daughter :).
David Zampa said this 680 days ago.
meaningless icon! @The Vogfather -- Sale price :) @AngelElizabeth -- But we do ship to the Netherlands! You can find it on our Country drop down list under "Netherlands". @MMO -- You only need to include in your total the prices of the items you want :) Thanks for putting in the description box which ones you'd like! @Lorax42 -- Sale price! @tjachec -- Sorry, there is no confirmation email. As long as you hit "Submit," you should be good!
