If you’re a regular reader, then you’ve probably heard me drop a few hints in the past week or two about the upcoming contest both on the site and in the email newsletter. A few weeks ago I noticed that I crossed the million visitor milestone, so to celebrate I wanted to give back to the readers. It has been a while since I’ve had any sort of giveaway, so I figured I should give away some pretty good stuff.
All said and done, I have hundreds of dollars worth of prizes ready to give out. After all, without readers this milestone would never have been possible. So, it’s my way of saying thanks and to hopefully find a few new readers. But let’s stop wasting time and get right to the good stuff. Here’s what’s at stake:
The top prize is a brand new 8 GB Apple iPod Touch. If you haven’t had a chance to play with one of these yet, they are just amazing little pieces of technology. You’ll be able to fit your music, videos, pictures, and anything else you want on there. Plus there are some fun games you can add as well.
Quicken Premier 2009
Next, we have a fresh copy of Quicken Premier 2009. I probably don’t need to tell you that Quicken is one of the most robust financial management programs available, but this would be a great thing to have if you’re trying to get your finances back in order.
And while I’m talking about Quicken, I just wanted to remind you that I do some occasional articles over on the Quicken Blog. They have completely redesigned it and are featuring a lot of other personal finance bloggers, so it’s certainly worth a look. I will be giving away one copy of Quicken Premier 2009.
Nuru Personal Finance Cards
I did a brief review of these cards a while back, but they are kind of a neat thing to have. Included in this deck you’ll receive 28 cards that discuss various financial topics in a way that’s easy to understand.
What I like about these cards is that the information is presented in bite-sized pieces. They can be good for a refresher or if you’re trying to understand the basics of a new concept. I’m giving one pack of these cards away.
10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget
This book just came out this week and was put out by the folks at Wise Bread. You can see my review from earlier this week. So, since I like the book so much I will be giving away a copy of this as well. UPDATE: Wise Bread is going to be providing a few more copies of the book, so I’ll have 3 total winners for this prize.
Assorted Finance Books
And finally, one lucky winner will receive a handful of finance books right from my personal collection. For this prize, I’m going to keep it a surprise. You won’t know what you’re getting until the package shows up on your doorstep. I’ll be including five random books to one lucky winner.
How to Enter
The contest is now closed!
No contest would be complete without some legal copy, but I’ll keep it short. This giveaway runs until 11:59 pm Eastern time on June 21st, 2009. All tweets and verified newsletter subscriber confirmations must be timestamped on or before this time. All entries will be compiled and assigned a number after this time and a random number generator will select the winners. Winners must have provided a valid email address or Twitter account in order to receive a prize. Prizes will only be shipped to locations in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico. This giveaway is void where prohibited and terms are subject to change.
