It’s the holidays, and I want to give something to Afford Anything readers.
So here’s the deal — if you’re an email subscriber, leave a comment below saying so. (And if you’re not an email subscriber — sign up!)
Tell me what you like about this website. Tell me how you plan to grow wealthy. Or tell me about something awesome/funny/uplifting that happened. Say whatever you want, really. Just subscribe. That’s all I ask.
I’ll pick one comment through a randomized-number generator on Random.org. The winner gets a $75 gift card to Amazon.
Don’t want anything from Amazon? Here’s another option: I’ll give $75 to any charity of your choice, as long as the charity is listed on JustGive.org (a website that acts as a nonprofit “screener”).
I WILL look through my email subscriber list to make sure you’ve “activated” the subscription (i.e. you clicked on that link in your email that confirms your subscription). The prize only goes to active subscribers.
Okay … go for it!
Contest closes Friday, Dec. 14 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time. Open to anyone 18+.
This idea came from a group of personal finance bloggers who asked me if I’d join them in a “12 Days of Christmas”-themed round of giving. Check out their websites to win the things they’re offering.
