Cash in Envelope

by - February 13, 2012 - 438 Comments

Hi Penny Hoarders!

One of you is about to win this envelope of cash.

Those of you who read the blog on a regular basis know that I often post “FREE Money Alerts” when I find a company that is giving away cash to promote their product/business (usually banks). Last month happened to be a big month for FREE money, with 4 different alerts bringing in a record $130!

I know many of you have already gotten your own bonuses, but today I’m going to give you a chance to win the $130 in CASH I made last month!!

Here’s a recap of what I made last month:


TOTAL = $130 to Giveaway!

I’m using Rafflecopter to run this contest and you can enter up to 45 times! (16 regular entries + 29 possible entries from Tweeting). Good luck everyone!

Please allow a few seconds for the script to load below…
