SRCH – Round Two Recap
At 10 a.m. Monday, May 23, the clue for round two of SRCH by Starbucks was unlocked – and players wasted no time diving in. All the prizes were scooped up in less than an hour!
So how did you do? Did you solve the clues correctly? Here’s the recommended path to solving this round.
It all started with the track list from Lady Gaga’s new album. But we didn’t just spell it out for you. It was written backwards with various letters missing. After you figured out what the missing letters were and put them together, you got your next clue: SRCH HER BIO.
This clue pointed you to the bio on Lady Gaga’s website. Buried discretely within this page was the phrase “SRCH was here.”
Clicking on that phrase took you to a photo on the Starbucks Facebook page. The photo showed the exterior of a Starbucks store, and the caption told you to find that location online.
Using the clues in the photo, you had to figure out the store was at 41st and Madison in New York City. Next, you should have gone to Starbucks.com and found the page for that store using the store locator. When you did this, you found the SRCH icon and the end of the trail.
Hope you had fun. If you were fast enough to win, good job. We’ll get your prize to you in the next few weeks. If you didn’t reach the end in time, better luck next time. Remember every round is a fresh start, so you don’t have to complete previous rounds to play in the next one. That said, completing all the rounds may help you when it comes to the final grand prize round. And feel free to use your smartphone or your desktop computer. If it has a web browser it will work with SRCH.
The next round of SRCH by Starbucks goes live on Wednesday May 25 at 10 a.m. PDT. Don't miss it!
