Who couldn’t use a bonus the holiday season? Well, if you use the RushCard Prepaid Visa, you might be in line for a holiday surprise.
RushCard has launched its “Fall” Sweepstakes offering $250 prizes to 50 families during the holiday season and nine $1,000 grand prizes. It’s the kind of contest I like best. Because for RushCard users, you have to do, well, nothing. Every cash load or direct deposit to your RushCard will automatically enter you for a chance to win. (If you haven’t signed up for direct deposit to your RushCard already, you should. Apart from the side benefit of sweepstakes entries, RushCard drops your monthly fee by $2 a month.)
The $250 prizes will be awarded weekly from now until December 24, 2018. For the nine grand prizes, you’ll automatically be entered in the same way but throughout the contest period. RushCard will award the grand prizes on January 2. All prize awards will be paid by adding the prize amount to your RushCard balance.
If you’re not a RushCard user, you might consider it. It’s easy to get, and its free ATM withdrawals and bill pay services put it on our list of low cost and free prepaid cards.
If it’s not for you, you can still enter the contest by mail. You can find the full details here. Good luck!
