Official Contest Rules

Please read these Official Contest Rules (the “Rules”) in their entirety before entering the ‘Continental Luck’ Contest. By entering the ‘Continental Luck’ Contest you agree to be bound by these Rules.

NOTE: Facebook, Google, Yelp, or Yellowpages are not associated with ‘Continental Luck’ in any way and are not liable for any damages.


1.         The ‘Continental Luck’ (“Contest”) is sponsored by Continental Currency Exchange (“Sponsor”), 190 Church Street, Bowmanville, ON L1C 1T9.

2.         No purchase is necessary to enter the Contest or to win a prize.

3.         The Contest opens on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, at 12:00 am (ET) (“Contest Opening Date”) and closes on Sunday, March 31, 2019, at 11:59 pm (ET) (“Contest Closing Date”).

4.         The Contest Period runs from the Contest Opening Date to the Contest Closing Date.

5.         The Contest is open to all Canadian citizens or those maintain a home or business address within Canada. Please note that unless the Entrant already has a OneCard by Continental Currency Exchange™, the Grand Prize must be picked up at a Continental Currency Exchange branch located in Ontario, Canada.

6.         Current, former or retired employees of either Sponsor (“Excluded Persons”) and any member(s) of the immediate family or household of an Excluded Person are not eligible to win the Grand Prize, but may participate in accordance with the contest rules.

7.         To enter the ‘Contest’, Entrants must visit a Continental Currency Exchange branch located in Ontario and purchase (in a single transaction) a OneCard as well as cash. Following this, they will be entered to win the Grand Prize detailed below. You may also enter the ‘Contest’ by leaving a review for Continental Currency Exchange on our Facebook page, Google, Yelp, or Yellowpages (the latter 3 for any of our 19 branches). Only 1 entry per person. Doing both methods will not increase your chances of winning.


7.         There is only one prize awarded for the Contest: one (1) Grand Prize. The prize will be awarded after the Contest Closing Date.

8.         The Grand Prize consists of one (1) OneCard loaded with $500 Canadian value, converted/exchanged into the currency of the winner’s choice available at the branch of the winner’s choice. The prize can be awarded in CAD, USD, EUR, or GBP. Pick up is available at any Continental Currency Exchange retail location. If the winner currently has a registered OneCard, they can request the ‘Grand Prize’ value of $500 Canadian be loaded onto their OneCard in any of the four currencies listed above. Loading an existing OneCard can be done without visiting a retail location.

9.         All of the prizes awarded in connection with the Contest are non-exchangeable, non-transferable, non-refundable, have no cash surrender value, and must be accepted as awarded with no substitutions.

10.       The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute any prize with another prize(s) of equivalent or greater value, without liability and for any reason including, but not limited to: delays caused by labour disruptions, adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen events or force majeure, or any other reasons. The Sponsor also reserves the right to extend or shorten the Contest duration at their discretion.


11.       The Grand Prize will be awarded based on a random draw from all Entrants who participate in the contest.

16.       If the potential winner fails to correctly answer, unaided, the time-limited skill-testing question; fails to return the properly executed Contest documents within the specified time; and/or cannot or is, for any reason unable to accept the Grand Prize as awarded for any reason; then the potential winner will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the Grand Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to select an alternate potential winner from among the remaining eligible entries (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to the newly selected potential winner).

17.       Once the winner has been determined by the Sponsor, the winner must pick up their prize, within two (2) weeks or the prize will be forfeited and there will be no liability to the Sponsor in the event this occurs.
