Some great news — over the next few weeks, we’ll be uncovering a series of giveaways and freebies on The Digerati Life and hopefully you’ll be around to join in. The one I’d like to mention today is not something that we’re holding here per se, but is actually being hosted by The Money Crashers. But it merits special mention because it’s pretty big!
If you haven’t heard about this already, do check out the massive Money Crashers’ 2010 New Year Giveaway Bash. It’s ongoing till the end of the month, January 31, 2010. I noticed that each time I drop by to check on this giveaway, the prize amount just keeps rising (the prize pot has zoomed up to $7,400+ as of this writing!).
Prizes are in cash and kind such as an Amazon Kindle, iPod Touch, Nano, Shuffle (all things iPod!), gift cards, software and personal finance books and magazines. MoneyCrashers pooled these great prizes together from various sponsors (including this site). The great news is that there will be over 100 winners so that means you have a lot more chances of winning something.
How To Win
In order to win one of these prizes, all you need to do is perform certain tasks or actions in order to earn entries. The more entries you have for the giveaway, the greater your chances of getting selected as a prize winner. The tasks are pretty simple, all you have to do is sign up for the giveaway so your information is properly tracked, then think about subscribing to and following Money Crashers and everyone on the giveaway sponsors list. 😉 Here are the basic steps.
1. Join the contest mailing list by signing up here. Your information needs to be tracked for this process.
2. Subscribe to Money Crashers’ RSS feed.
3. Accumulate entries by performing various tasks. Increase the chance of winning something by earning as many entries as possible. Each action completed will garner you a certain number of “tokens” in this case. The full list of tasks is described in the official giveaway page but suffice it to say that by following the twitter feed of a prize sponsor, you’ll get 5 extra entries to be used for the random draw of that sponsor’s particular prize. By following the largest sponsor, @wisebread, you’ll get 10 extra entries!
4. You can follow our twitter feed here for 5 extra entries towards free cash.
5. Winners will be announced on February 3, 2010 through a random draw. Rest assured the information will be well disseminated in the personal finance blogosphere on that day!
