Exactly three years ago, I launched this blog with a short post on how to get Aeroplan points reinstated because Air Canada started expiring them in dormant accounts. I doubt anyone ever read that first post. From such humble beginnings, this blog has grown to about 800 posts and more than 5,600 comments. While things were quite slow for the first two years, the past year has seen vigorous growth with a total of 340K visits and 625K page views so far.
I would like to sincerely thank you for your comments, your contributions, your kind words via email and for just stopping by. In appreciation, I am giving away three prizes: one 4GB Apple iPod Nano (valued at around $150) and two $50 Future Shop gift cards.
If you have a friend who you think might be interested in the blog, please do let them know. They might pick up a tip or two and they get to enter their name in the draw for their trouble. Thank you for your support.
Entering your name in the draw is very easy. Just leave a comment to this post and don’t forget to include your email address. You can earn an extra entry by posting a substantial comment (say 50 to 100 words) on your financial success story or money mistake (yes, I am trolling for ideas for the new Your Turn segment!) and what others can learn from it.
Attention bloggers: You can earn an extra entry by participating in a group writing project. Write a new post on “My Money Mistake and How to Avoid it” and leave the link in the comments. I would appreciate a trackback but it is not necessary for the extra entry. After the contest closes, I’ll publish a list of submissions.
Here are a few simple rules for the giveaway:
- Deadline for entries is 8 p.m. EDT on Thursday, November 30, 2007.
- A maximum of two entries per person and one prize per person.
- Canadian mailing addresses only.
- Your privacy is very important to me and your email address will be used for the sole purpose of contacting you if you happen to win.
- I’ll pick three entries at random and announce the winner after the deadline.
Thanks once again and good luck!
