Note: The Spooktacular Trick or Treat is now finished! Thanks to everyone who took part. Congratulations to our lucky winner…Karen Hachborn!

Continental Currency Exchange and theCurrent present: Spooktacular Trick or Treat! With Halloween almost upon us, we wanted to give something back to you – our loyal readers – in celebration of the holiday. Since everyone is out getting costumes and preparing to eat an unreasonable amount of candy, we figured we’d do a little trick or treating of our own!

How do I play?

Across theCurrent, we have hidden Jack-O-Lantern’s on assorted pages and articles. Simply start browsing the website and you’ll come across these spooky collectibles. Note that you will only find pumpkins of any color on posts from this year (2018). If you’re lucky, you could even find one of the elusive Golden Jack-O-Lanterns and enter to win the grand prize! They could be almost anywhere…even on this page (although it isn’t). Just click on any Jack-O-Lantern’s you find and follow the instructions from there. You have from now until the end of Thursday, November 1 to hunt!

Be sure to check our Facebook and Twitter pages as well throughout the contest. We’ll occasionally post some helpful hints that might just give you the edge you need to find an elusive Golden Jack-O-Lantern!



What do I win?

Without a doubt, the most important question. Find a Golden Jack-O-Lantern, click on it, and enter for your chance to win the scarily great prize of $100 Canadian, converted in to the currency of your choice. If you’re the lucky winner, you can pick the prize up from your favourite Continental branch or have it delivered straight to your door through FXtoGO™! While there are multiple ‘Goldens’ out there, you only need to find one to enter (and there is only one entry allowed per person). Don’t be too frightened though; if you find other coloured Jack-O-Lantern’s you’ll still get a very helpful reward.

Happy Hunting!

While finding a Golden Jack-O-Lantern in your candy bag is the best part of the ‘Spooktacular Trick or Treat’, we hope you’ll spend some time checking out our stories, guides, and other articles. After all, who knows where a big one is lurking! There are many Golden Jack-O-Lanterns to find out there, but the hint below can get you on the trail of one.

Hint: Without a head it haunts the roads, while one drags sailors to the deep. Stumble across these creatures and you’ll find it very hard to sleep.
