Lending Club Twitter Contest: 2 Weeks of Blissful Giveaways!

In celebration of our recent release of Lending Club’s new investor tools, we are hosting our second twitter contest! …and this time, it is Lending Club t-shirt galore:  1 of every 10 entries will win a nifty Lending Club t-shirt + $50 new investor account bonus.  It’s that easy.

From Monday, November 2 through Sunday, November 15, 2009, we will give away 1 Lending Club t-shirt for every 10 entries each day.  Each winner also gets a $50 new investor account bonus while all participants get a $25 new investor account bonus.

What’s an entry? Well, very simple:
Just Follow @LendingClub and tweet about this contest.
Tweet this
: RT @LendingClub Twitter Contest: 2 Weeks of Blissful Giveaways! Follow @LendingClub + RT 2 win DETAILS: http://ow.ly/ySq4

For an extra entry!
Every day at 8am PT (11am ET), @LendingClub will tweet about a loan being funded by the community on our site.  Search for the loan here and simply tweet a link to it for an extra chance to win.

For example:
We tweet:
“Find a loan from someone in CT, who wants to repair house before winter”
You tweet:
“Check out this loan @LendingClub: Doing repairs to house before winter http://bit.ly/20qHHR

This means 1 in 5 chances to get your t-shirt + $50! And everyone wins: our borrowers get their loans tweet’d and you will likely get a t-shirt for it.

We will take entries from 8am PT to 7:50am PT the next day, and will announce the winner at 7:55am PT (10am ET) the following day.

Happy tweeting!
