Share Your Savings Goal and Win $1000 in the #ImSavingFor Contest

To celebrate the upcoming America Saves Week (Feb. 27-March 4, 2017), America Saves is launching the #ImSavingFor contest. It’s easy to enter. Just share a short video of your savings story, or a picture of you and what you are saving for and enter to win $1,000 at americasavesweek.org/imsavingfor.

How to enter:

  • Create a short video featuring your savings story by answering at least one of these questions: What are you saving for? What is your savings story and how can it help other people? What is your favorite savings tip or trick?
  • Or take picture illustrating your savings goal
  • Enter to win at americasavesweek.org/imsavingfor
  • Share your video or photo on social media with the hashtag #ImSavingFor

Get creative!

  • Keep it simple by taking a video or picture in front of the item your savings for – like a new car or house
  • Use a video or photo editing tool to put yourself in the frame with your goal – like a trip to the Grand Canyon or Mount Rushmore
  • Use an app to add a caption or some character to your submission

Bonus chances to win:
You can only enter once per person, but you can get an extra three entries by taking the next step in saving and completing the America Saves Pledge to create a simple savings plan. After entering, look for an email with your bonus opportunity information.

The contest runs from February 1 – April 7, 2017. America Saves will pick one entry at random on March 10 and contact them by email. Click here for the full official rules.

Thanks for sharing!!! I will have to talk to my wife tonight and see if we can come up with anything clever. She’s smarter than I am so I’m sure she’ll think of something fun 🙂

    Hey, no problem. I thought this was pretty cool and I signed up to partner with America Saves Week. Please let me know whatever you share. I still need to come up with something too. Yeah, my wife is much wiser than me as well 🙂 I’m also hosting a Twitter chat at 6 pm on Thursday, March 2 for this. Check out more info here – http://RunTheMoney.com/AmericaSaves. If you can make it (even for 10 mins), love to have you share any insights! Have a good one, Rob.
