Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Yahoo! Purple Hunt

Got a lot of questions about the Yahoo Purple Hunt (I'm one of the power users helping out) and here are some additional information that may be of help.

Question: Where can I get a purple ticket?

Answer: Purple tickets are found all over Yahoo! products. First stop point is the Yahoo! Philippines home page where there is a banner image about it. Navigating the various pages will also allow you to find more Purple Hunt tickets.

Question: Ok. I found it. How do I join?

Answer: Once found, just register and an e-mail gets sent to you. In this e-mail, there will be details on how to redeem Yahoo! purple gifts at the mall tours happening over the next 3 weeks.

Question: Is the Purple Hunt for Metro Manila Yahoo! users only?

Answer: Phase 1 is the hunt for the Purple Ticket. People all over Philippines can hunt for it online. However, to redeem for Purple goodies, they need to go to the Ayala Malls in Metro Manila to do so.

For phases 2 & 3, prizes at stake are the cameras and phones. People all over Philippines can hunt for the clues online, submit their entries online and if they win and cannot attend the Purple Hunt Finale, Yahoo! will send the prizes to them.

For phase 4, people all over the Philippines can hunt for the clues online, submit their entries, and MUST attend the Purple Hunt Finale in order to participate in the footrace to win the car, surround sound system, gaming console and other prizes.

Question: Is there an age restriction for the Yahoo! Purple Hunt?

Answer: Winners have to be 18 and above and for those who are not, we will need an adult to sign a waiver form on behalf of the underage.

Question: How many tickets can I get in a day?

Answer: 1 ticket per person per day. This is will entitle you to a goody (available until stocks last).
