Treasure MoneyHere’s one giveaway prize everyone can use — $100. In partnership with Living On The Cheap, we’re going to give five lucky readers from across the country $100 each.

With such a big payout, we’re going to make you do a bit more than just leave a comment. We’re sending you on a hunt to find three “secret” words or phrases. But being nice guys, we’re giving you a map (actually step-by-step instructions). Be sure to follow the directions carefully so you get your chance at the cash.

Here is how you enter:

  1. Click on the Jacksonville on the Cheap daily deals page. Look for the secret word. Hint: It says “Here’s the secret word.” Write it down.
  2. That page also has a link to the second secret word, along with how to find it. Find that one and write it down.
  3. Go to this Living On The Cheap page and find the third secret word. Write it down.
  4. Now send an email to [email protected]. Put “Contest Entry” in the Subject line. In the body of your email you must include all three secret words/phrases, as well as your real name and mailing address. Don’t worry, we aren’t going to add you to any mailing lists, we promise.

Deadline to enter is 10 p.m. EDT on Thursday, June 28. Five winners will be randomly drawn and contacted by email from the Living On The Cheap crew. If they don’t hear from you within 72 hours, they’ll move onto the alternate winner.

Fine print: Only one entry per household. Duplicate or incomplete entries will be tossed. You must be a resident of the United States.

barnes-and-noble-summer-readingThis summer, kids can get a free book at Barnes & Noble with the Imagination’s Destination summer reading program. If kids in grades 1-6 read eight books and fill out a reading journal, they’ll get to choose a free kid’s book.

The bookstore program isn’t the only one in which kids can earn prizes for summer reading. Our friends at Living on the Cheap have a list of 10 other free summer reading programs, plus a few additional resources.

Graduation-hatsEven though I don’t have children, I think my age qualifies me to give some money advice to new graduates. Yes, I think they should save money and stay out of debt, but I also think they should learn to cook. You can find the rest of my advice at Living on the Cheap. Leave a comment with the best advice you have for new grads – and their parents who are seeing them move back home.
