Announcing the Race to 500 Winners!

At the end of 2019, we ran our first Race to 500 savings challenge! The idea came from a member who said they wished we offered an incentive to save for the holiday season. We were inspired to run with that idea—pun intended.

We’d first like to take a moment to congratulate the 7,539 of you who entered! With gifts and loved ones on your mind, the holidays are a tough time to save money. We’re happy to announce that you all collectively saved $273,555!

  • Gold Tier: Five members won $500
  • Silver Tier: Five members won $250
  • Bronze Tier: Five members won $100
  • Forty-five members won $50, $25, or $10

We’re already looking forward to our next big savings challenge, the Race to 100. Do you have a great savings challenge suggestion for us? Let us know. We might just feature your idea next!
