Independence Day, the fact that there are just 177 days left until Christmas, and the start of National Savings Month.
At LearnVest, we’re particularly excited about the latter—so much so that, for this month’s call to action, we want to know: What’s the most you’ve ever saved for one goal—and how’d you do it?
Maybe you scaled back on happy hours and dinners out in order to build up your emergency fund in record time. Or, like one writer you’ll hear from this month, you won more than enough scholarship money to graduate from college debt-free—and even got a refund check.
Whatever it was, please share your story in the comments below—and you’ll be entered for a chance to win $100! And be sure to use your email address when you comment—it won’t be visible to other users—so we can notify you should you win.
Open only to legal residents of the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. Premium users are not eligible. Contest running from July 1, 2014, through July 22, 2014. We will select the most compelling entry as the winner, and his or her story may be published on the site.
