John E. of Monroe, CT (yes, the same one as below!!!)
Trevor Z. of Ulster Park, NY
Amanda C. of Westland, MI
The Spooktacular can claim a victory as we had to give 5 clues for this to be finally claimed. We’ll try to keep it a tad bit easier next time…NOT!
Here were the hints:
1. The letters/numbers you find make a coupon code
2. With the correct organization of those letters/numbers you can get an item for free.
3. The Free item is already a Spooktacular special and the coupon code will give you full 100% off the price.
4. The name of the character is backwards.
5. The item is 2146
6. The first letters of the code are ABBAJ…..
Happy Hunting! Mama Mia it will be tough to use!
