Guess the Total Giveaway Prize Pool Amount for 20 Extra Entries

By Money Crashers

As you know, we launched the Money Crashers 2010 New Year Giveaway Bash just last week and it’s been a huge success so far. Close to 1,000 participants have already signed up and the prize list continues to grow as new sponsors come on board with even more cash and amazing prizes.

Just to give you an idea – we started the contest with a prize pool of $5,400 and at the time of this post, it is now at $7,400.

How high will it go? Let’s play a little game to add to the Giveaway fun. We want you to guess what you think the total prize pool amount will be by the end of the event (January 31st). You can leave a comment on this post with your guess.

We’ll give the person who guesses the closest amount without going over 20 extra entries for the Giveaway.

You have until Tuesday, January 12 at noon (12:00PM EST) to submit your guess. Only 1 guess per person.

We’ll announce the exact prize pool amount at the end of the Giveaway.  NOTE: The deadline has now passed!

Good luck!
