I’ve taken part in a number of giveaways on this site over the years ranging from books to iPads, but this giveaway is by far the biggest. Me and a few other personal finance blogs have teamed up with IRAmarket to give away $5,000 to fund your Roth IRA.
This giveaway comes at a good time because there is also a #RothIRAMovement taking hold. Next week there will be over 100 personal finance bloggers taking part to raise awareness of the Roth IRA and there will be a lot of special events and posts, so stay tuned for that.
More About the Sponsor IRAmarket
IRAmarket is a new service that helps you compare banks’ and brokers’ IRAs. In addition to profiling 20 of the leading IRA providers, IRAmarket helps you see all the current offers for opening an IRA or rolling over an old 401k or 403b to an IRA. Offers include cash bonuses from companies like Schwab, E*TRADE and Scottrade, and free trades offers from Fidelity, Wells Fargo and USAA.
IRAmarket’s mission is to help Americans save more for their future. Articles and tools on the site help you learn about the cost of 401k plans, and how you may be able to save more by rolling over to an IRA. You can use IRAmarket.com’s cost estimator to see how much a company’s IRA may cost depending on what you invest in and how much you trade. In the future, IRAmarket will be adding features to make it easier to compare fees, open IRAs and roll over 401ks.
As part of its contribution to the #RothIRAMovement, IRAmarket is sponsoring a “Win $5k for Your IRA” contest to raise awareness about IRAs and the upcoming April 17th deadline for 2011 IRA contributions. You can enter the contest through April 8th for a chance to win the maximum IRA contribution of $5,000 or $6,000 if you’re age 50 or older. After you enter, you can share the contest with friends and family for additional chances to win a matching prize.
