Coles Little Treehouse

Coles has partnered with much loved authors Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton to bring the characters from their hugely popular series, 13-Storey Treehouse, to life in 24 free Little Treehouse books. 

You receive one Little Treehouse book for every $30 spent in one transaction at Coles, Coles Local, Coles Online (maximum of 20 books), and Coles Express. That is, if you spend $90, you will receive three Little Treehouse books. The Qualifying Spend is calculated after applying all savings and discounts and excludes the purchase of: Coles Insurance products, iTunes cards, gift cards, mobile phone and mobile phone plans, recharge, calling cards, Opal top up, liquor, tobacco and tobacco related product purchases, Uber Eats, eBay, AdBlue, Trailer Hire and Lottery cards. 

Fuel at Coles Express is included in the qualifying spend.

Yes, you will be able to receive a Little Treehouse book when you spend $30 in-store or on any fuel type at Coles Express. That is, if you spend $60 on fuel, you will receive two Little Treehouse books.

When you ‘proceed to checkout’ to complete your order, you will see a screen asking if you would like to ‘Add and continue’ with Little Treehouse books in your order or would prefer to not receive any Little Treehouse books. 

If you choose to receive the Little Treehouse books, you will see confirmation of this on the ‘Done’ page. You can see full details about how to receive Little Treehouse books on https://shop.coles.com.au.

There is a total of 24 regular Little Treehouse books, each focusing on the story of a different character from the Treehouse series. There are also three rare Fluro books: FLURO PURPLE Inspector Bubblewrap’ Dos and Don’ts; FLURO PINK Jill’s Little BIG Book of Animals; and FLURO ORANGE Mr Big Nose. Then there is the SUPER RARE Golden Treehouse Tour. 

If you find one of the 100 Golden Treehouse Tour Little books, you are eligible to win a personalised GOLDEN copy of the (yet to be released) 130-Storey Treehouse, and a Kobo Libra H2O eReader. If you find a leaflet in your Golden Treehouse Tour, follow the guide and enter your unique code on coles.com.au/littletreehouse. You must keep your leaflet to claim your prize. More details on the competition can be found in the Terms & Conditions on coles.com.au/littletreehouse.

The Golden Treehouse Tour book is randomly mixed in with all the Little Treehouse books so customers will have the chance to win the rare book when they spend $30 in one transaction at Coles Express.

No, there is an equal and evenly distributed amount of the regular 24 Little Treehouse books. There are three Fluro Little Treehouse books that are rare, and the Golden Treehouse Tour is SUPER RARE (only 100 available), though all Little Treehouse books are randomly distributed across stores in every state and territory. 

Each Little Treehouse book is sealed in a non-transparent pack. Coles Little Treehouse as a campaign is modelled on a ‘lucky dip’ blind selection process, with this built in at point of production.

Coles Little Treehouse launches on 29 July 2020 and will run for 8 weeks or while stocks last.

The number of eligible Little Treehouse books in each transaction will be printed on the bottom of your receipt in store or invoice for Coles Online. You can show this receipt to the nearest Team Member to receive your FREE Little Treehouse books.
