We know that saving money isn''t always top of mind. That''s why University of Illinois Saves, along with America Saves campaign, is launching a new text message service to keep you motivated to save as part of Financial Literacy Month. Now, when you ! take the SAVES PLEDGE (http://universityillinoissaves.org) you can choose to receive text message tips and reminders. And if that isn''t enough, we are giving away $500 to help one person reach their savings goal. (Must be 18 years of age or older to win.)
How to enter to win the $500:
1. Take the SAVES PLEDGE (http://universityillinoissaves.org) on or before April 30, 2013.
2. Click the box to receive text messages.
When you take the SAVES PLEDGE, you will choose a savings goal and an amount to save. We will use the goal you choose to send you text message related to that goal. Text messages will come in the form of tips to help you find money to save, as well as advice and reminders to help you save for your specific goal.
It''s a win-win situation. One lucky person will win $500 to help them reach their savings goal '' and everyone will win by staying motivated to save.
Don''t forget to share this with friends and family. It may be the thing that helps them set their goal to start and emergency fund, ! pay down debt, or save for items like education or retirement.
Good Luck and Happy Saving!
