Let us re-cap.
First, ignore the clue number 2. You will not need it, because it has been supplanted by the clue number 7.
Take the remaining ten clues to the bidorbuy Advanced search page and enter them as follows:
Clues 6, 10 and 11 will give you the keywords to type in the search box. The keywords are the words missing from the three phrases. If you need help figuring them out, turn to your favourite search engine for answers.
- Find clue 6 on the Competition tab of the bidorbuy page on Facebook.
- Find clue 10 on the Competition tab of the bidorbuy page on Facebook.
- Find clue 11 on the bidorbuy page on Twitter.
Clues 7 and 8 narrow down the price range of the item in the mystery listing.
Clue 9 gives you the category where the missing item is housed. (Again, you may go to a search engine to find the solution for the riddle.)
- Find clue 9 in the bidorbuy Forum.
Clue 3 tells you what type of listing our mystery item is.

For all you visual types out there, here it is in picture and words:
After you enter all ten clues, press the Search button, and you will land on a search results page containing two or three listings. From there, you will have no trouble finding the mystery listing. You will recognise it by this image (the famous Yay! image):
Then pretend to buy the item (one buy per treasure hunter, please). Do not worry, you will not have to pay anything. Instead, you will be given a secret code which you need to SMS to 33003. You may SMS the code as many times as you want, bearing in mind that every message is charged R1.50.
All the correct SMSs received by 5 P.M on 5 November 2010 will be entered into a draw.
The winner will be randomly chosen and informed by telephone no later than 15 November 2010.
