    Good contest. It inspires a lot of people to win (in more than 1
    way if you know what I mean).

  2. Thanks for running this contest. Seems like one has good chances to
    win one of the prizes.

  3. Anthony:

    This is a good contest, and timely too. Fiscal discipline is one of
    the major challenges most of us will face in 2011. I know that
    there are some people who strongly believe that we will be seeing
    hyper-inflation in the next 18 months. Having less debt, especially
    consumer debt, will be a good step toward financial safety, should
    these fears become reality. So shred that card, babaaaayy!

    Excellent suggestion, this would certainly help us to manage our
    money better, if you don’t have temptation around.

  5. Martin S:

    Thanks for sharing this and for the gift cards you’re giving away
    too. I’ll be sure to shoot for one.
