Although I’m neither a contest blogger nor a deal blogger, I do sometimes post giveaways, TweetChats and other promotions from elsewhere. Occasionally one carries the potential for affiliate income for me, e.g., when someone signs up for a seminar. Mostly, though, I put them up to give readers a chance to win stuff.
The folks at Savings.com are giving away a laptop computer. Specifically, they’re giving away an HP Pavilion 11t-n000 x360 PC (Energy Star).
Edited to add: The giveaway quickly filled up with more than 5,000 entries and closed early. But it has been retooled and is now back in business. You can enter up until 9 p.m. EDT Wednesday, April 30, by going to the Savings.com giveaway page.
A randomly drawn winner will receive the prize within 90 days of the contest’s end. And as always: If you win, please come back and brag about it.
A shot at Amazon gift cards
If you can take your lunch break at 2 p.m. EDT tomorrow (Tuesday, April 29), then eat at your desk and join the “Getting and staying financially fit” TweetChat sponsored by Ally Bank.
For an hour you’ll get a chance to offer advice and receive it, both from fellow guests and from Ally Bank and Bankrate.com experts. The focus this month is on money smarts that parents can teach their children.
Don’t wait to do this: A study from Cambridge University indicates that most money habits are formed by age seven. While it’s possible to fix any bad habits later on, it’s easier to build a money-smart child than to fix a financially broken adult.
Sign up at the Ally Bank blog if you want to be included in the drawing. And you do: Ally Bank is giving away two $100 Amazon gift cards. That link also includes info on how to access the chat.
See you there.
