UPDATE: I was a turd and ran the numbers wrong on this — The actual winner is JENNIFER HELTON! Sorry for the confusion all! That’s what I get for putting this up in a rush…
You ready to find out who won my Darth Vader bank and all the money inside it? Okay here we go… Let’s first show you the breakdown of all the coins and what the *correct* total amount was:
# of Pennies: 59 x $0.01 = $0.59
# of Nickels: 26 x $0.05 = $1.30
# of Dimes: 31 x $0.10 = $3.10
# of Quarters: 16 x $.25 = $4.00
Making a grand total of $8.99! Which was wayyyyyy lower than 99% of you guessed unfortunately… My wife said it apparently looked MUCH bigger in the picture than in reality? It’s too bad she didn’t catch it BEFORE I POSTED IT UP!! Haha… So you can blame her if you lost ;)
But one person DID win! And that was with the lucky (or smart?) guess of a measly $0.01! Way to go
AverageJoe, you win the bank and the cash! And you barely beat out Jennifer Helton who had guessed the 2nd closest at $15.32 :) I’ll shoot you an email for your contact info soon…
Thanks for playing everyone!
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.
