5 Savers Will Win $50 by Signing Up for Savings Text Messages

We know that saving money isn’t always top of mind. That’s why America Saves is incentivizing saving by providing cash prizes for signing up for savings text messages! From October 1 to October 31, 2013 when you Pledge to Save and choose to receive text message tips and reminders you will be entered to win one of five $50 giftcards to kickstart your savings.

(Must be 18 years of age or older to win, standard text messaging rates apply. Click here for official rules.) America Saves will choose a new winner each week of October.

How to enter to win the $50:

  1. Pledge to Save between October 1 and October 31, 2013.
  2. Make sure to check the box to receive text messages.

When you Pledge to Save, you will choose a savings goal and an amount to save. We will use the goal you choose to send you text message related to that specific goal. Text messages will come in the form of tips to help you find money to save, as well as advice and reminders to help you save for your specific goal.

It’s a win-win situation. Five lucky people will win $50 to help them reach their savings goal – and everyone will win by staying motivated to save.

Don’t forget to share this with friends and family. It may be the thing that helps them set their goal to start an emergency fund, pay down debt, or save for items like education or retirement.

Good Luck and Happy Saving!
