And now, the official Cities on the Cheap contest, South Florida-style.
To celebrate the national launch of Cities on the Cheap blogs, we’re giving away a few books about money by South Florida authors, plus a few Webkinz just because they’re cute and my brother sells them.
To enter the contest, add a comment to this post with your favorite On the Cheap tip for South Florida. It could be an upcoming free event, a place you like to visit that’s always free or cheap, an ongoing discount, a favorite happy hour, the best place for a cheap dinner, a favorite discount shopping site — you get the picture.
All valid posts from my five Florida sites will be entered into a random drawing, and the winners can choose their prizes.
We’re giving away three books, two music CDs and two Webkinz.: 1) Dave Barry’s Money Secrets Like: Why Is There a Giant Eyeball on the Dollar?; 2) Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan: Keeping Your Money Safe and Sound; 3) Lucky You, by Carl Hiaasen, a novel about a lottery winner; 4) Meet Me In Margaritaville: The Ultimate Collection, Jimmy Buffett CD; 5) Introducing Spam All-Stars CD; 6) Webkinz Bullfrog; 7) Webkinz Clydesdale.
If your tip is from Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, the Florida Keys or elsewhere in Florida, you can enter your comment at one of these sites:
