When it comes to saving money, I have more than a few tricks up my sleeve. Whether it’s price matching, buying off season, or making sure that I get the best rates when it comes to banking, I know that I’m a master at saving a buck or five.
Whether you are saving for a rainy day or saving for retirement, having a secret weapon for saving is necessary. While some people are better at saving money than others, I firmly believe that anyone can do it with the right tools. One of those tools, newly available to Canadians, is Zag Bank. Zag is a new direct bank that makes saving money easy. What is Zag’s not-so-secret way to help you meet your financial goals even faster? Offering up to 2.5% interest on Zag RRSPs.
To celebrate their launch and to encourage thrifty shoppers to share their saving secrets, Zag is setting up a special installation in Southgate Centre, Edmonton, on Saturday, February 6th and Sunday, February 7th. Come down, ask your questions, and while there, enter to win one of two giveaways, the first valued at $250 from yours truly! Details of a special local draw, exclusive to fans of Just me, Julia. and the $2,500 Zag giveaway are below.
Want to enter my contest? All you have to do to enter is send your saving money secret with the hashtag #SaveWithZag and #justmejulia. Want a bonus entry? Head down to Southgate Center and take a selfie standing in front or within view of the Zag installation and share it with social media (Facebook or Twitter). Don’t forget to tag your picture with @justmejuliag on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
Again here are the ways you can enter the giveaway from Just me, Julia.
• Mandatory Entry: Send their secret with the hashtag #SaveWithZag and #justmejulia. For example “I save money by ….. #SaveWithZag #JustmeJulia #YEG.”
• Bonus entry: Take a selfie in front of the Zag installation and upload it to your personal Facebook or Twitter account with the hashtag #SaveWithZag and #JustmeJulia.
• Bonus entry: Share this post and tag a friend who lives in #YEG
• Contest entries for my giveaway will be accepted for as long as the Zag installation is active. One winner will be chosen at random and contacted through the platform they used to enter. Winner must live in the greater Edmonton area.
But wait, there’s more!
You can enter to win $2,500 when you stop by Southgate Centre on Saturday, February 6th or Sunday, February 7th and record a Savings Secrets video at the Zag Installation. You can view the full contest rules here.
Don’t worry, if you are unable to make it out Southgate, you’ll still have a chance to win $2,500 by tweeting a Savings Secret with the hashtag #SaveWithZag or commenting on a post on Zag’s Facebook page from February 15-29, 2016.
Best of luck, and happy saving!
