We’re continuing the 50/50 Challenge and it’s time for me to share my own progress.
Money Earning and Savings Tips this Week
This week we continued with 4 more tips to help you save and earn a bit of money on the side.
- Money Saving Apps for Travel
- Considering Purchasing A Work-At-Home Program?
- Get More Money in Your Paycheck: Calculate Your W-4 Withholding
- ING Direct Black Friday 2011 Deals
We had two guest posts as we went out of town to hang with family and friends. I’m recharged and ready to finish out this month with a big bang.
This week I’ll switch it up and share my progress with the Challenge this month. If you remember, I announced that my goal is $1,000. My plan was that half would be from cutting expenses and the other half would be more income from work. The good news is that I made my goal with earning more (in fact I may make almost $1,000 extra this month). The bad news is that I haven’t reached my savings goal. Yet. I still have 2 days to get it done, so I’ll be working today and tomorrow on finding some money.
Picking the 50/50 Finalists
Now that we’re in the last week, I wanted to remind everyone how the winner will be picked for the 50/50 Challenge. As a reminder the prize for the 50/50 challenge is the new Kindle Fire. This is a big challenge to undertake and I think it deserves a fun prize.
For those not familiar with the Kindle Fire, here are some features:
- 7″ vibrant color touchscreen
- Over 100,000 movies and TV shows re available to stream or download, purchase or rent
- Kindle Fire gives you free storage for all your Amazon digital content in the Amazon Cloud
- Battery Life: Up to 8 hours of continuous reading or 7.5 hours of video playback
The contest ends November 30, 2011 (11:59 PM Eastern), so please post any progress and updates you’d like me to consider before then. I’ll be drawing the finalists on December 1, 2011 and will contact them. That’s why I need a valid email so I can contact you if you’re one of the finalists.
I’ll post the finalists here on Couple Money once all the finalists have confirmed their emails and Couple Money readers will then have until December 4, 2011 (11:59 PM Eastern) to choose their winner. If you’re a finalists, try to rally your friends to come over here and choose you when the entries are open. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter if you want.
I’ll contact the winner and send them their prize. The Kindle Fire is for US Residents only. For Canadian and other international readers I will offer $199 via Paypal only. You must have an account with Paypal or you will be disqualified. You must be 18 or over to qualify for the prize.
So far, I’m already looking at some great challengers that all deserve to win.
