Pandora Advent Calendar 2012

Last year, Pandora started an advent calendar contest on their website: For a chance to win a prize everyday in the month of December, you had to find the hidden candle somewhere in their catalog (charms, rings, earrings, etc.). Once you found the candle and click on it, you were automatically entered to win. There were three winners chosen at random every day with three grand prize winners chosen on December 25th and December 31st.

Now the contest is on again! From December 1st through 25th, if you can find the hidden star (see inset), click on it for a chance to win three prizes a day and be automatically entered to win the grand prize on Christmas day.  The twist this year is that not only can the candle be hidden on their catalog, it may be in the Pandora Magazine as well.  The contest refreshes every night at 12 am EST with a winner chosen at noon the next day.  Winners will be announced and contacted within 4 days and must respond within 7 days to claim the prize.

Some people had a hard time with the contest last year because of technical difficulties and I’m sure the same will probably be true this year.  The magazine is in Adobe Flash which is unsupported by Apple iPhones or iPads so I would recommend doing this contest on a computer if you can.  I have a Mac and had no problems last year, but other did report that it was not working on their Mac computers.

Also, be advised that not all countries can participate because of their legal requirements for contests.  Residents from these countries are allowed to enter: Australia (except Australian Capital Territory), Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Ireland, New Zealand, Northern America (except Quebec), Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, UAE, and United Kingdom.  

Have fun everyone!  (Note: I cannot answer technical questions regarding the contest)  🙂

    Thank you Leann! I found my first star!

  • Suzan

    I have a question, I just found my first star, but where do I go back to see the star on the Pandora page. Because I know it shows how much stars you collected, but I don’t know where to find that page. Can someone please help?

    Thank you.

    • Veronica

      I think I saw how many stars I collected on their FB page.

      • Suzan

        Yes got it. Thanks!

      • Leann

        Yes, now you can track your stars on their Facebook app.

    Found my first star than read “not for res. of que.” 🙁

  • Jennifer

    Hmmm, not so easy to find today. I feel like I have looked everywhere.

    But where are they posting the “hints” they mentioned?

    • Leann

      They said there would be hints on FB but I have yet to see any :(.

  • Suzan

    Yeah trying to look for the second star, but can’t seem to find it. People are saying, just login and you’ll see it, but I don’t see it.

  • Michelle

    on there FB page they had the star clip so thought it was a hint but not seeing it when I go to that page on the pandora site…hmmmm

  • Ashley

    Ugh! Why do that have to make such a difficult game for everybody to figure out!? Its like whatever happened to easy “sweepstakes”?? Enter your name, email, address blah blah blah! But no, Pandora says lets make it really fun and confuse everyone….

    As you can tell, I was the one with “technical difficulties” last year!! 🙂
