The giveaway just got sweeter. How you asked? Let me tell you……

Well, it’s not really our giveaway, but another personal finance blogger has stepped it up and giving away $5,000 in cold cash and 2 iPad’s as part of his giveaway.

Yes, 5 G’s and 2 iPad’s! Woot! Woot!

You can find this awesome giveaway at My Money Blog here. Go, enter, and good luck!

Ho! Ho! HO! Merry Christmas! It’s giveaway time at Good Financial Cents.

Who doesn’t like a giveaway?

Well, this is special giveaway for a few reasons:

1. This is my first giveaway on the blog. Woot!
2. There are 4 other awesome personal finance bloggers joining me.
3. We have an awesome sponsor that is stepping up to giveaway some really cool stuff.

Are you ready for the details? I thought so.

First, things first……what are we giving away?

We’ve got 3 awesome gifts:

1. iPad 2 (16gb) – That’s right baby. One of Apple’s best products!
2. Amazon Kindle Fire – The latest and greatest Kindle
3. Barnes and Noble Nook – Just because we believe variety is the spice of life :)

How’s that for a lineup of free stuff? Fyi, I don’t have any of the above (I have the 1st iPad) so I’m a little jealous of the lucky individuals that win!

Who is the coolest sponsor of them all?

Smart Investing Made Easy

Well, Betterment of course! I contacted the peeps over at Betterment about the idea and they were totally on board.

Not sure who/what Betterment is? Be sure to check out my interview with Jon Stein, the CEO of Betterment to learn more about them. According to their site,

It’s smart investing made easy. Betterment puts a personal investment account in your hands by blending the simplicity of an online bank account with the higher long-term returns associated with investing in stocks and bonds. The best part? You don’t have to spend nights and weekends researching—that’s their job.

For anyone that doesn’t have the time to do research on their own investments and would prefer to do it online, then you should at least consider Betterment.

    The best burger in the U.S. is the one I’m eating at the time. I love burgers. Especially cheeseburgers. Is there a bad burger? I don’t think so.

    • Jeff Rose says

      Five Guys does offer a wider variety of toppings. Personally, I can’t get enough of In-N-Outs secret sauce. That’s the only topping I need!

    In-N-Out Burger …. I rarely eat red meat anymore and have only had a few of these years ago, but they were awesome!

    I love eating burgers! That is one of my favorite foods… I love McDonald’s double cheese burger! yummy….

  4. says

    I have never been to In & Out Burger before (I’ve never even seen one)! Five Guys just came out here a few years ago, and I just had a horrible experience with them last week.

    The best burgers I’ve ever had can be found at either Jezif’s Fried Chicken or Old Man Rafferty’s – both in Jersey!
