TimelessFinance First Anniversary Giveaway*
TimelessFinance published its first post one year ago today. It’s been an awesome 366 days and I’d like to thank this humble blog’s loyal Dear Readers. (AND BLOGGERS — CHECK OUT THE EXTRA CONTEST BELOW THIS ONE!)
As a more tangible, less sappy thank-you for a great year, we’re going to have a giveaway! There are three prizes:
1st prize – $250 through PayPal
2nd prize – TurboTax (one 2013 Canadian online license) and The Beginner’s Guide to Saving and Investing for Canadians
3rd prize – TurboTax (one 2013 Canadian online license)
See what I did there? I managed to rustle up awesome prizes from previous giveaways. Plus I’m dropping $250. Thanks very much to:
- Intuit for contributing the copies of TurboTax. I reviewed TurboTax 2012 last year. I look forward to reviewing the 2013 edition (my post ideas have just gotten really backlogged). I can already say, after having poked around the latest interface, it appears to still be the Cadillac of online tax prep software. (Note that the free online license isn’t limited to just the “Standard” version so it’s a pretty darn valuable prize.)
- Glenn Cooke for contributing The Beginner’s Guide to Saving and Investing which I reviewed here last September. It’s an awesome guide for personal finance newbies and I encourage you to pick up a copy — particularly if you know anybody in their teens or 20s who could really use some straight dope.
If anybody else has a sick prize they’d like to add to the pot, let me know. I can list it here and draw one or more extra winners.
Entry into the contest is super easy, just use this RaffleCopter widget. It ends in less than two weeks so enter ASAP.
Promotional Giveaway for Bloggers**
To help spread the word about the main giveaway, TF is also running a separate mini-giveaway for bloggers. The prize is $50 paid through PayPal. Added: I’m going to draw a second winner and Glenn Cooke from LifeInsuranceCanada is going to send this second winner $100! (Thanks for this awesome additional prize, Glenn!) It’s also super easy to enter:
- Share a no-follow link to this contest page in a blog post on your site; and
- Give me the URL of your post in a comment on this post.
So, again, two prizes for this: one is $50, the other is $100.
