To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Personal Capital is giving away a trip to Hawaii for new users! It’s really simple to enter.
- Link your financial accounts.
That’s all. The contest runs until February 14th, and the odds of winning obviously depend on how many people sign up. You can read the official rules here, but basically the winner gets two $1,000 gift cards for airfare on Hawaiian Airlines and a $1,000 gift card to Airbnb.
This could fully fund a trip or not, depending on where you live, when you want to travel, and how picky you are about accommodations. Regardless, the odds for winning are much better than buying a lottery ticket. If you’ve been on the fence about signing up, now is the time.
Why Sign up for Personal Capital?
Tracking your finances is perfectly doable without using an automated program, but it’s much more time consuming. I like Personal Capital for a number of reasons.
- Their dashboard is easy to read and understand. It gives you an honest picture of spending, earning, and net worth.
- They have an awesome retirement calculator.
- You get weekly emails that let you know if you spent more or less than the previous week, which is a good wake up call if you’ve been a little loose with the wallet.
Be in Control of Your Finances
Tracking spending is the first step to being in control of your finances. We never used to track anything because of fear over what we might find. Living in oblivion only works for so long. Whether your numbers look amazing or awful, it’s important to know where you stand so you can plan how you’d like the future to be.
It is kind of a bummer that existing users aren’t eligible, but I understand the power of promotions. Even if you already have an account, you could still be in the contest if a friend or significant hasn’t signed up with Personal Capital.
Sign up this week to have a chance at being thee lucky winner of a trip to Hawaii!
