I’m Giving Away an iPad – Enter Contest Here!

***NOTE: CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED***

The winner was “Marianne”. Thank you to all who entered!!!

I’m going to be giving away an iPad to a lucky reader. Specifically, a 16GB WiFi iPad. The good news is that you can earn up to 15 entries into this contest.

Why Am I Giving Away an iPad?

Because my readers are awesome. I also run ads on this blog which generate income and I’m a big time socialist (not really), so I’ve decided to re-invest in order to grow the readership. As you’ll see, some of the ways to earn extra entries involve spreading the word which hopefully will translate into more traffic, more ad revenue and more prizes down the road. But mostly because my readers are awesome.

What’s an iPad?

Seriously?

Well, you can read some of my musings on it. I’ve been using one for over a month now and it’s fantastic. Click on the following links to read what I’ve said about the iPad.

How Do I Enter Already?

You can earn up to 15 entries in the following ways:

  1. Earn 1 entry: Leave a comment on this contest post. Nothing in poor taste, and no using vulgarities (as per usual).
  2. Earn 2 more entries: Be subscribed (and validated) to email updates from WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com. If you are already subscribed, you get the 2 entries automatically. “Validated” means that your subscription is active and you are receiving the emails. Click here to subscribe to the email updates if you aren’t already and get your two entries.
  3. Earn 1 more entry: Follow me on Twitter. Go to my twitter profile and then make sure to “follow PreetBanerjee”. If you already follow me on twitter, you already get the 1 entry. Click here to get to my twitter page, and then make sure to follow me.
  4. Earn 4 more entries: Tweet about the contest. Each tweet earns you 2 entries, and you can tweet the contest twice, but not within a 24 hour period. Also, your tweet MUST include “@preetbanerjee”, a link to this post, and some indication about there being a contest to give away an iPad (so people will be more inclined to click on the link!). Here, I’ll make it easy: click here to tweet about the contest.
  5. Earn 2 more entries: “Like” Preet Banerjee on Facebook. This fan page doesn’t include the blog updates, but does include other updates (like about the TV show in development and upcoming media appearances). Click here to go to the fan page and then click on the “like” button to get your 2 entries.
  6. Earn 5 more entries: If you have your own blog that has more than 25 posts on it, link to this contest post and you can earn 5 more entries.

    I am 52 yrs young,have been in a couple of bad relationships, tried to save some money but always was vulnerable to helping out by cashing in,bad ventures and a few gullible mistakes.now I would like to try to invest at least a little to try and have something for some kind of retirement, do you have some advice.

  • Robert

    Grace, Allow me to suggest sending an email directly to Preet. (http://wheredoesallmymoneygo.com/contact/) That way, he can respond to you privately.
    My advice (unsolicited, the best kind), is to ask advice from a number of people, then act on what seems most sensible and trustworthy. It never hurts to get a second (or third) opinion.

  • Jason Bennett

    Preet you rock!!!

    I was going to resist the lure of the IPAD, but I was recently seated across the aisle and behind a gentleman using one on a 3-hr flight. It was fascinating, and by osmosis, I think I'm a convert.

    Well Preet,

    I may abstain from Facebook and Twitter, but have no problems with adding my comment.

    I also added my wife's facebook as liking you! She won't be impressed! Besides Squawkfox and her husband both linked so i should take every opportunity right?

    I will also reluctantly add my blog link to this comment for a few more entries. Its more a personal journal for myself, but if it helps win the ipad… and the ipad looks like its worth it!

    http://canadianoptions.blogspot.com/

    Free stuff is great. I won “397 ways to save money” a while back from another well read blogger!

    Preet
    Thanks for such an amazing giveaway!

  • Werner Patels

    First, 16GB wasn't even good enough for an iPhone to really make good use of it (in fact, a Telus employee advised strongly against 16GB).

    Second, wifi is for the birds because unless you have a good wifi system at home, and a structure and walls that won't block signals, you're out of luck.

    I'm getting my 3G (only way to go!) 64GB iPad by May 28 noon delivered to my door. So, as for your contest, thanks, but no thanks.

    Linked into this site from the Globe and Mail. It has a lot of very interesting material. On the draft KYA my advisor comes up fairly well. The quiz was interesting, didn't do all that well but learned from it. Looking forward to following the information that you provide. Many thanks.

    Congratulations

  • Dolores

    I was impressed with your KYA questionnaire.
    It's extremely difficult to find a great advisor who doesn't require you to already have great personal wealth–they won't take clients who don't already have hundreds of thousands to invest…what I need is someone who will take my modest wealth and make it grow.

  • anthy

    I would definitely love to have an iPad. Thank you very much for the giveaway. :-)

    I suspect that I would fail any financial skills question (as I just recently signed up with a 401K and have had all my money in the bank or in CDs for years), but I still have to try! Give me a skills question on the best way to write a SQL Server or Microsoft Access query and I am so THERE, though.
