JOIN THE ONLINE SAVINGS CHALLENGE
The Ultimate Cheapskate, Jeff Yeager, Provides Money Saving Tips and Challenges in AAPR’s 3rd Annual Online Savings Challenge
Saving money has never been so much fun!!
Contest Runs April 1-30 on www.aarp.org
AARP contributor Jeff Yeager (aka The Ultimate Cheapskate) has once again teamed up with AARP to launch an online Savings Challenge with the goal of showing consumers how spending smart and consuming wisely can be a lot of fun. The AARP Savings Challenge offers practical and easy money-saving tips and challenges consumers to try out some of Jeff’s ideas in their daily routines to see how much they can save and how much further their money goes! Each day, participants enter how much they saved (or didn’t spend) in the Savings Challenge Tracker so we can track individual progress. They’re also encouraged to join the AARP Savings Challenge online community where participants can interact, share tips, ideas, etc. and hundreds have already registered.
During the four week contest, weekly challenges will be issued to the participants. At the end of the four weeks, three overall prizes will be awarded to folks who participate the most in the challenge and are the most creative in their suggestions. Winners will be selected by Jeff and first place will be awarded a $2,000 cash gift card, second place will receive a $1,000 cash gift card, and third place will get a $500 cash gift card.
The four weekly challenges are as follows:
• Save Gas Challenge. Jeff will challenge members in the Savings Challenge Group in the online community to find ways to save gas by encouraging them to carpool. He’ll also provide money-saving tips to help keep their car in good shape.
• Best Deal Challenge: Jeff will challenge members in the Savings Challenge Group in the online community to tell us about the best deal they ever got. Did they haggle? Did they get a discount/use a coupon/find something for free?
• Go-Green Challenge: Re-use, recycle, repurpose. Jeff will challenge members in the Savings Challenge Group in the online community to consume less, and reuse items before throwing out or buying new ones.
• Best Meal Challenge: Your best meal for under $10. Jeff will challenge members in the Savings Challenge Group in the online community to cook a cheap dinner. He’ll ask for recipes, try some out and pick a winner for the week.
