You Could Win $500 by Signing Up for Text Messages from America Saves

Your chance to win $500 is back! We know that saving money isn’t always top of mind. That’s why America Saves launched a new text message service to keep you motivated to save.

Now, when you take the America Saves Pledge you can choose to receive text message tips and reminders. And if that isn’t enough, we are giving away $500 to help one person reach their savings goal. (Must be 18 years of age or older to win. See official rules here.)

How to enter to win the $500:

  1. Take the America Saves Pledge Between June 1 and June 30, 2013.
  2. Click the box to receive text messages. (Standard text message rates apply. Check with your provider. You can stop messages at any time by replying "stop" to any message)

When you take the America Saves Pledge, you will choose a savings goal and an amount to save. We will use the goal you choose to send you text message related to that goal. Text messages will come in the form of tips to help you find money to save, as well as advice and reminders to help you save for your specific goal.

It’s a win-win situation. One lucky person will win $500 to help them reach their savings goal – and everyone will win by staying motivated to save.

Don’t forget to share this with friends and family. It may be the thing that helps them set their goal to start and emergency fund, pay down debt, or save for items like education or retirement.

Good Luck and Happy Saving!
