Nationwide Treasure Hunt! ‘Checkpoint: SPOT’ Launch

“Get the clue, find your coordinates, and head out on a SPOT adventure to win!” This summer, join Spot LLC and on a nationwide treasure hunt. Part online game, part participatory adventure, follow the ‘Checkpoint: SPOT’ clues to geographic locations outdoors around the USA.

Once you’re registered, players log-in and then “check-in” at the ‘Checkpoint: SPOT’ locations to claim a prize. It’s that easy. We have prizes from Wenger, Wigwam (a year’s supply of socks!), Salomon, Kelty, Suunto, Wolverine, Albabici (SCICON bike case!), Easton, Timberland, and Gerber. All prize packages are worth a minimum of $500.

For now, you must own a SPOT device to play. The promotion runs from July 28 to October 31, 2011. Soon, we will open the contest up to smartphone users as well. Good luck!

Go to to register and start your treasure hunt today!
