How to Win the Two $500 Giveaways!
Okay, so you excited? Ready to get some free hotel stays and possibly $500 in spending cash to go along with it? Then listen up! Here are your two ways to win below. Pay *extra* special attention so that your entry counts – I want you to win!! And you can do whichever one (or both) you want too – totally up to you :)
- Giveaway #1: $500 HotelClub Member Rewards: Answer the following question in the comments below:
“What’s your best tip for saving money on travel?”
- Giveaway #2: $500 in Spending Cash: Write a blog post answering this same question above and sharing your tip with your audience, and THEN add the following line of text at the bottom:
It is *very* important that you put this line of text AND both links along with it in order for our entry to count – so don’t forget! One winner from these blog posts will win the $500 in cash :) But be sure to also leave the blog link in the comments too! Not only so that we can see you’ve posted about it, but also so you’re entered in the $500 credits giveaway too! You may win both?
The entries will be judged on creativity and awesomeness, so make sure to submit your *BEST* tips! The winners won’t be picked randomly, but instead by the wifey and I ;) So make them good! You have until next Wednesday, May 30th, @ midnight to submit them, and we’ll announce the two winners shortly after. GOOD LUCK!!! I can’t wait to give out the $1,000!!! Woohoo!
PS: Here is one of my favorite travel saving tips: Always bring your navigation when renting cars! It’ll save you like $10-$15 a day, and it fits easily in your backpack or luggage. Of course now you can also use smart phones for that, but always best to be as hands-free as possible, esp. if you’re on a mission all by yourself ;)
TERMS & CONDITIONS: All entries must be left in the comments by midnight on Wednesday night, May 30th, to count, and all entrants must be 18 years old and up. The winner of the $500 in cash must have a Paypal account to collect it, and the winner of the $500 in Member Rewards must have/create a free HotelClub membership to receive those. By leaving your answers, you also give us permission to blog about it in the future, both on BudgetsAreSexy and on HotelClub, as well as in other promotional pieces we may choose to do. Quick disclosure – I have also received compensation for hosting this giveaway. But even if I hadn’t, who wouldn’t want to give their readers $1,000?? ;)
UPDATE: The winners have been announced! Woohoo!
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
