Win-Win-Win Monthly Giveaway

Win Win Win - I'm Giving Away $50After the success of my most recent book giveaway with 110 comments and my $1000 giveaway last Christmas with 6853 entries, I figured now would be a good time to launch a regular monthly giveaway on my site that I've been thinking of doing for quite some time.

Why Win-Win-Win?

People always like to talk about win-win scenarios in life where two people manage to forge a deal that is beneficial to both parties. That is the kind of thing we should be striving for because everyone can walk away happy. We all like to win, so it's great when everyone actually does!

Win #1

The first winner is you. By participating in the giveaway, you will have the chance to win $50 in cash that I will be giving away to my readers on a monthly basis.

Win #2

The second winners are your friends. The point of this giveaway is to encourage my readers to engage and interact with my content as well as share it with their friends. By reading the articles that you share, your friends will become winners through learning money saving strategies that can make a real difference to their finances and quality of life!

Win #3

The third winner is me. Any website needs readers and visitors to be successful and by getting more readers through this giveaway, I also become a winner.

I could pay Google, Facebook, or Twitter to get my name out there through advertising, and I sometimes do. However instead, I can pay you, my readers, through this regular giveaway and my hope is that will have much more impact and be of greater help to all of you.

I think paying you guys is the better way to go, don't you?

How It Works

It's simple. All you have to do is share articles that have appeared on with your friends via email and social media. I will compile a list of links to recent articles plus a few other articles I would like to spread the word about in a new Win-Win-Win post every month so you can easily click on them to share.

Other articles from the site not listed in the post are valid for an entry too if you want to find them and share them yourself instead of the ones listed.

Of course, you should only share those articles that you think are helpful and worth reading. I try to make every article valuable, but ultimately it's up to you to decide what's good and what's not.

The contest will run for the entire month and close a few days before the next monthly contest is set to run. I will then draw the winner for the previous month's contest and announce them in the post for the new contest.

Use the form below to enter and follow the directions in each step carefully.

It'd be helpful to find a (not spammy) way of reminding us each month! I also like a few of your 'older than one month' articles and would have liked the opportunity to enter using some of my favorite links of yours! Keep up the good work!

Feel free to use any existing articles really. That's no problem. I'm just putting the most recent articles and some other recent favourites so people have something easy to click on and share. If you, or anyone else, wants to share a specific older article then that can count as an entry. It just has to be shared within the contest period is all. You can also share the same article multiple times across different platforms (just not the same article to the same person multiple times). I updated the post to clarify all that. Hope that helps! People who are on my email list will get an email once a month announcing the new contest. I hope that won't be too spammy for most people. It's a new chance to win $50 each time so hopefully that should be ok. I'll also post a few reminders on Twitter and Facebook throughout the month to remind people to enter and share for those that follow on social media.
