We are just a few days away from Halloween, which means that you have a small amount of time left to prepare for everyone’s favourite autumn holiday. Both children and adults are impatient to dress in original costumes, to put makeup on their faces, to make a pumpkin lantern and to prepare candies, and sweets.
Don’t worry if you still don’t have any plans for Halloween. We have prepared a list of fun activities that you can organize at the last moment. iCard will be your faithful companion in tricks and treats, as well as in making payments in stores and online.
1. Stay at home for a movie marathon
What is Halloween without horror movies? Now is the time to cancel all your other plans and put your tasks away. This year Halloween is on a Sunday. Prepare a comfortable seat and delicious popcorn. Еnjoy the latest horror productions of the year. If you are not a fan of scary movies, you can choose some of the timeless blockbuster series related to magical worlds – such as the Harry Potter movies or “The Lord of the Rings”.
Remember that with all debit cards issued by iCard, you can pay for your online subscriptions. We recommend you to do it with one of your virtual cards, which are specially designed for payments on the Internet. You can now feel completely safe when paying for video sharing platforms such as Netflix, HBO GO, Apple TV + and more. Pay in seconds by confirming the operation directly through the application (via 3DS), then freeze the virtual card you used until the next time you use it.
2. Read a fantasy book
If you are a book-is-better-than-movie kind of person, now is the perfect time to enjoy a good horror book. Let your imagination make you a part of the terrific story and the life of the main characters. If you want to create an atmosphere even scarier, turn down the lights and light candles instead. Turn on some creepy music and immerse yourself into the horror plot.
Choose books from your favourite bookstores or online. Then buy them with the help of your favourite digital wallet. Use your virtual cards issued by iCard for all your purchases made on websites or in mobile apps or pay with a physical debit card by iCard in retail stores.
3. Take first place at a boarding games competition
Playing boarding games is another awesome idea for Halloween. Organize a friendly contest with close buddies, relatives and colleagues. You can even think of some prizes for the winners or challenges for the losers.
Now is the right time to buy the board game that you have always wanted. See all the special Halloween online offers for board games, order the most challenging one, and pay for it with virtual cards by iCard. If you prefer to play many games in one day, go to a board game bar. Make contactless payments: via your phone via iCard Pay, Apple Pay, or Google Pay and Visa cards issued by iCard. The procedure is fast, convenient, and safe.
4. Get out of an escape room on time
Escape rooms are one of the newest trends in entertainment nowadays. They offer an adventurous game. To win, you need to find the answers to the riddles in the room for a certain time and solve all mysteries that will show you the way to the exit.
Don’t forget to pay for this different Halloween experience with your favourite digital wallet iCard. Manage your finances anytime, anywhere in the world, even while you’re locked in an escape room and trying to solve a complicated puzzle. It is even possible that one of the jokers is hiding in the application…
5. Organize a themed party for Halloween
Invite friends and relatives to your home and make a Halloween party. You can prepare a spooky decoration from pumpkin lanterns, fake spider webs, plastic skeletons, ghosts made of fabric, black and orange balloons. Try to bake delicious cookies in the shape of a pumpkin or bat, put colourful icing on the cupcakes and buy sweet candies. You can also prepare fun drinks with red edible paint to make it look like blood.
iCard will always be here to make easy and secure paymentsin the most convenient way for you. Buy all you need for your unforgettable Halloween party and pay for it with debit cards, mobile phone, smartwatch, or NFC keychain.
6. Catch all festive moments
Use the decoration that you created for the big party to make a Halloween photoshoot. You can take pictures with a camera for instant photos or with the camera of your mobile phone. Prepare costumes for all family members – children, adults, and even pets. DIY masks and accessories from paper and other handy materials that you have at home.
If you don’t have enough time to make costumes for everybody, you can order everything you need from the Internet. With iCard, you can have up to 20 virtual cards (including the one you have already removed) to shop on your favourite websites and in apps. With the opening of your first account in the digital wallet, you get 2 free virtual cards. You can always add another one for 1 EUR.
