Couple Money's Laptop Giveaway

In case I forgot, we're giving away a laptop bundle to a member of the Couple Money community. It's my way of saying thanks and hopefully helping someone fulfill a dream, like getting started on some freelance work doing something they love.

If you're interested in entering, here's the vital information on it.
