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!

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

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!!!

You can enter above in the Rafflecopter widget (wait for it to load, it’s just under the title “ENTER HERE… & GOOD LUCK”)

*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 would take it to the bank, getting it all in quarters. Then I’d dump the quarters on my naked body and giggle because they are cold and that would tickle me. Afterwards I’d invite everyone over for a coin flipping tournament with quarters that previously touched my naughty bits.
