Find the Golden Mic, share your pic and tag us on social!

Throughout the summer we will be placing 60 Golden Microphones in Costcutter stores across the UK. Want to be in with a chance of winning 1 of our 4 summer prizes? To enter, all you have to do is find a Golden Microphone in one of our stores, take a selfie with it, post your pictures on social media and tag us @Costcutter with the hashtag #FindTheGoldenMic. Simple, right? We’ll be sharing clues on our social media channels throughout the summer to help you find the location of the Golden Mics hidden throughout the UK. So get ready, get set and stay tuned across the summer on social media and right here on our website to take part! 

So how does it work?

  • We are giving away 4 x Holiday vouchers worth £5000 across 4 phases this summer (1 voucher for every phase).
  • Each phase will see the Golden Mic enter different stores across the UK, a total of 60 stores across the whole summer.
  • The Golden Mic will stay in each store for the week (Wednesday to Tuesday) before moving on to the next destination ( 4 – 5 destinations every week)
  • Costcutter will supply clues on our website and across social every week as to where the Golden Mic is now hiding.
  • Once you have figured out the destination of a Golden Mic head over to the store and snap a selfie with you and the Golden Mic before posting it on social with the tag @Costcutter and #FindTheGoldenMic.
  • At the end of each phase (see dates below) we will randomly pick a winner and notify them within 3-5 days.
  • The next phase of the Golden Mic competition will then begin (see dates below) until all 4 phases are complete.
  • We will post the winners across the website and social as they are announced.


Phase 1 : Wednesday 29th May 2019 – Tuesday 18th June (11.59pm)

Phase 2 : Wednesday 19th June 2019 – Tuesday 9th July (11.59pm)
