DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is forgoing the tricks and going right for the treats in its latest contest as it gives away two $500 Exchange shopping sprees, ten $100 gift cards for the runners up and 20 $50 gift cards for third place.

The “Halloween Treasure Hunt Sweepstakes” will send Exchange patrons on a frightfully fun scavenger hunt throughout the store. Using a treasure map featured in the Exchange sales flyer or from the store, shoppers can use the map to hunt for clues in the Exchange. After collecting all five clues, treasure hunters can go to www.shopmyexchange.com/PatriotFamily for official rules and to enter their clues.

 “The Exchange is ready for a ghoulishly good time,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Jeffry Helm. “In addition to the sweepstakes, the Exchange is stocked with all the Halloween essentials. From costumes to candy, we’ve got all the ghosts and goblins covered.”

The contest begins on Sept. 30 and ends at the stroke of midnight on Oct. 31. No purchase is necessary to enter.
