2010 March Madness Contest Winners, Part 2

In celebration of March Madness (and Spring), we had 8, yes 8 $100 gift card winners this month! 4 of those lukcy winners were chosen on the 18th, while the remaining 4 won today!

For the second contest of the month, we asked ‘When does interest on a SmartyPig account begin to accrue?’  The answer is: Interest begins to accrue once the funds have been received by SmartyPig and have posted to your account. This means that SmartyPig has collected the funds and West Bank has full use of said funds. For your security, funds may take up to 2-business banking days to post to your account.

Of course, we accepted all sorts of variations of that answer for almost 200 correct answers into the pool! We randomized our list to 16 and picked the 4 $100 SmartyPig gift card winners:

You’ll know the top 16 by watching the video! Thank you to everyone for playing and good luck next month!

Congrats to our winners: @chriswoods85, @kidzmatter2me, @AlixLogan, @QuestionXisting!
