GIVEAWAY: The $100 USD Cold Hard Cash Blog Giveaway (+ $50 and $75 USD bonuses)

giveaway-100USD

WHO DOESN’T LOVE GETTING MONEY FOR FREE?

To celebrate my awesome news and to spread some general cheer (let’s face it, we could all use it), I am giving away $100 USD visa Paypal.

(Instead of giving away an actual prize, I figured I’d give away cash, because who doesn’t love money?)

It all comes right out of my own currently unemployed pocket; no one is sponsoring or partnering with me on this. I’m also paying any Paypal fees, so you get that $100 USD free and clear.

The only requirement is you do need a Paypal account (very easy to sign up for one, worldwide). I am not going to mail anything or wire anything to anyone.

HOW TO ENTER

ENTER HERE … & GOOD LUCK!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

===============================================================

YOUR ODDS OF WINNING ARE BETTER THAN ANY LOTTERY IN THE WORLD

This blog giveaway is free to enter. Not to mention that most people lose 100% of the money they invest spend on lottery tickets, anyway. The $100 USD can be used for anything you want:

  • pay off some debt (student debt, is something I know very well about, to the tune of $60,000!)
  • stash it away for a rainy day
  • start saving for your retirement and invest in index funds
  • buy yourself or someone in your life something special (also fun!)
  • go out for a great dinner (or three!)

YAY!!!

*SPECIAL ENTRY BONUSES*

$50 USD and $75 USD CASH PRIZES

DEPENDING ON TOTAL ENTRIES

If I get more than 5000 total entries into this contest (5001 entries), I’m giving away an additional $50 USD runner-up cash prize!


But if I get more than 7500 total entries (7501 entries), I’ll give away an additional $75 USD cash prize!

So tell everyone you know about it, because it’ll just mean you’ll have a better chance of winning one of the bonus prizes if you don’t get the big one.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I’d probably use it toward grocery money. Or go out to a nice restaurant, which I haven’t done in a year and a bit.
