Chanukah Giveaway #4: $250 CASH!!!

I am thrilled to announce this morning that for Chanukah Giveaway #4, I am giving away $250 in hard cold cash, courtesy of my favorite cash-back program, Ebates.

Yes, indeed.

The winner will receive their prize check within two to three weeks of the end of this giveaway. Talk about a great way to start 2012!

Use your winnings to pay off debt, pad your emergency fund, take a romantic get-away with your spouse, buy your kid that iPod he’s been begging for… or whatever your heart desires.

I’m once again using the Rafflecopter widget because it makes things so nice and easy for me – and hopefully quick for all of you, too.

Today there are 7 possible entries per person. The first entry is MANDATORY: Please leave a comment on this post telling me what you usually do with “windfall” money – whether it’s $20 your grandmother gave you for your birthday or a cash-back check from Ebates. Do you splurge? Save? Use it toward everyday expenses?

The second entry is not mandatory to enter, but it is mandatory to collect your winnings in the event that you win – and that’s to sign up for an Ebates account if you don’t already have one. If you win and are not a member of Ebates, you will be disqualified and a new winner must be chosen. That would be very sad.

The rest of the entries are all optional, but remember, the more ways you enter, the better your chances are of winning!

A note about Rafflecopter – the widget  now requires you to sign in. You only need to do this one and then you’re all set. You can sign in via your Facebook account, but you don’t have to. You can also use your name & email (see the little link below the Facebook box). Please let me know if you have any questions.

This giveaway will be open for four days – until Monday, December 19. The winner will be selected and notified on Tuesday, December 20 – just in time for the first candle!

Happy Chanukah my dear readers! Good luck to you.

  1. Chanabirthary! Splurge!

  2. There are so many people in my life that I would love to give that little something to before the holidays to make them feel appreciated… This may just be a win-win situation… You give I get; I get I give… And this just may continue a cycle of random kindness!

  3. I give 10% to charity and save the rest for a worthwhile purchase

  4. Right now I use it to “get through” tough times by trying to pay off many bills and expenses as possible…but I look forward to a good splurge in the near future when our current situation changes.

    I tend to use it for every day expenses- unless it’s a giftcard- then I’ll treat myself to something

  6. Evelyn Behar says

    I give some to tzedakah and then put the rest in savings!

  7. i go to cvs and buy makeup and nail polish, things i don’t let myself buy with “real” money 🙂

  8. we will use it to pay for daycare

  9. I’d use windfall money to pay bills. If bills are covered for that month I’d spend on something fun for my kids such as a new game or book.

  10. I usually use it toward everyday expenses or savings (if my everydays are already taken care of) but if there is something on my wishlist that I want hard enough, I’ll splurge. Not out of my ordinary spending much, but in the vein of, say, spending more on something I needed anyway (like, I have been needing to replace my camera for a while. Now that I got a chanukah gift, I’ll replace it now – but still with the amount I would have spent anyway)

  11. I would use it to help pay for a family trip to Disney. We are hoping to take our girls for the first time next summer.
