Well – we had over 280 entries into our $100 (3 $100 winners) Twitter and Facebook contest! We asked, “This month, TransUnion reported the avg combined debt for bank-issued credit cards dropped to 8-Year low. What is it?” The answer: $4,951, down more than 13% from last year, according to this recent article.
We ‘played’ a summer activity in finding our winners (randomized to the top 20 people):

We couldn’t let August go by without having our monthly contest! We’ll be giving away 3 $100 gift cards on Tuesday, August 31 at 2pm CST. As usual – we will tweet/post a Facebook question and give our followers 15 minutes to reply for a chance to win.
- After 15 minutes, we will be picking 20 random people with a number generator from the pool of correct answers.
- We’ll use an old favorite to help in selecting three gift card winners.
- We’ll post the process here on our blog, so everyone can follow along!
- You’re following us on Twitter or are a fan on Facebook
- We’ll ask the $100 question on Tuesday, August 31 at 2pm CST.
