Timmy Kart $250!

Timmy Kart $250

Gentlegeeks, start your shopping carts.

It's time to celebrate our 14th anniversary in style!

So it's not really a race, and there aren't any bananas or Koopa shells involved, but if you fill up your ThinkGeek shopping cart with up to $250 worth of goodies between now and 1pm ET Thursday, August 15, 2013, and enter via the form below, you and one other lucky participant will have a random chance to win whatever's in your cart!

UPDATE! The contest is now closed. Congratulations to Sarah T. of Dallas, TX and Kayla C. of Knoxville, TN! Your carts pulled ahead of the race and are the lucky winners of Timmy Kart $250. Enjoy all your new goodies!

It's back to the starting line for everyone else! Better luck next time.

How to enter:

  1. Create an account with us if you haven't already. You'll need an account before you can set up your cart. Make a note of your account ID. (It's the string of letters and numbers on your account page after the "Hello, number so-and-so" greeting when you've logged in.)
  2. Log in with your account and fill up your cart with as close to $250 (not including shipping, but including tax, if applicable) as you can manage. If you go over $250, even one itty bitty cent, your cart will not be included in the drawing.
  3. Go all the way through to checkout--after entering your billing and shipping addresses--and stop short of paying. (We'll do that part!) Once you get to the last checkout page, just leave the site. Or stay there, whatever--just don't actually check out and pay. (Note: If you're looking to shop, just click on our "Save your cart for later" button, so that we'll have your $250 cart in our system!)
  4. Enter your ThinkGeek account ID below in the form, along with your email address, preferably the same one on your account. (That way, we can find your cart via your email address as well.)

Pretty simple! Of course, there are details down at the bottom of the page you should check out.

So create an account if you don't already have one, start filling up your cart, and when you're done, enter your account ID below! The contest is now closed.

Those pesky details:

  • Enter only once! We will accept only one account entry per person.
  • You may technically have more than one $250 cart tied to a single account, but it will not increase your odds and only one cart (the last one you set up) will be fulfilled if you win.
  • You must be 21 years old as of today to enter.
  • If we can normally ship to you, you can enter this contest.
  • If we can't normally ship to you, you can throw Koopa shells at us but you can't enter this contest.
  • International entrants, please note that you will likely have to pay customs and fees upon the delivery of the prize if you win. We cannot estimate the cost of those fees, but we're guessing your government would love to tax $250 worth of stuff.
  • We will ship to you via either UPS or DHL so we can track the package and make sure it arrives safely.
  • You must enter through the above form by 1:00pm ET August 15, 2013 to be part of the random drawing. If you set up a cart by 1:00pm ET but don't enter the form, you're not entered for a chance to win. If you set up a cart before 1:00pm ET but don't enter a cart in the form until 1:01pm ET or later, you're not entered for a chance to win. If you're still reading this and not filling up your cart, you're not entered for a chance to win.
