Just a reminder that you have until 9:15 pm Pacific TONIGHT to create a bracket and enter to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!
Who is up for a little March Madness? The Frugal Living NW contributor team is having a friendly NCAA Men’s Tournament Bracket competition and we’d love for you all to join us!
I am sponsoring three competitions:
Frugal Living NW Readers — That’s you! Join the Frugal Living NW Yahoo Pool by submitting a bracket. The winning reader bracket will get a $50 Amazon Gift Card.
If you’re smart, you’ll also submit a Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge while you’re on Yahoo. If your bracket is perfect, you’ll win a billion dollars. That one is sponsored by Warren Buffet.
Frugal Living NW Contributors — Each Frugal Living NW team member is playing for a local charity. I will donate $250 to the winning bracket, $150 to the second place bracket, and $50 to the third place bracket’s selected charity.
Here are the charities we are playing for:
Kate: Shepherd’s Door Women’s Shelter (Portland)
Emily: Embrace Oregon
Krista: Clackamas Service Center
Melody: TBA (Get on it, Melody)
Laurie: Oregon Food Bank
Shelly: Portland Rescue Mission
Angela: Salvation Army’s Veterans and Family Center (Portland)
Frugal Living NW Husbands — Our husbands are also completing brackets and playing against each other. The winning bracket will get a $50 Amazon Gift Card. The other 7 get nothing.
I will post updates through the tournament. Smack talk is allowed and in fact, strongly encouraged.
Ready to play along? Head to the Frugal Living NW Bracket Pool, create an account, and complete your bracket by Wednesday night!
The winner in each competition will be determined by the bracket that receives the most points based on Yahoo’s point awarding system. In the case of a tie, one winner will be randomly selected to get the prize. In order to enter, you must create a Yahoo account, join the Frugal Living NW pool, and complete a bracket before March 19, 2014 at 10:00 pm. The winners will be posted after the NCAA Men’s Championship game on April 7, 2014. Please note before entering: You are completing a bracket that is administered and managed by Yahoo. They may send you emails or other random stuff.
