Do you use SaveUp? Have you ever heard of it?
I found it several months ago, via Wise Bread, I think. It’s one of my morning rituals now. I especially like it around the first of the month. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
SaveUp is what you get when you combine Mint with Vegas. You input your financial details, and it gives you points for debts you pay off and money you save. Then you can use those points to earn prizes. There are drawings for gift cards, and there are games you can play where you can instantly win more money. You can play two scratch-ticket like games as well as one where you pick three suitcases, and if they all match, you win whatever they say. That one is my favorite, as it seems the odds are against me. There’s also one similar to the lottery, but I don’t play it, since I don’t play the real lottery and I don’t have “my” numbers.
It’s basically the gamification of saving and debt payoff.
I think it’s silly, but fun, and I just know I’ll win $50 or $100 one of these days! Okay, maybe not. But it’s still a fun way to wait for the coffee to get done in the morning!
If you click my link, I get more points, and more plays, so help a girl out? ;)
