Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Managing your family’s money in today’s tough economic climate is a constant challenge. With the back-to-school season upon us and the end-of-year holidays on the horizon, planning for both expected and unexpected expenses can be a daunting task – especially if you’re trying to do so with less money than you made in recent years.
The Equifax Finance Blog announces today its first Family Money Matters Video Contest, encouraging consumers to share their best money management tips and strategies in video format, then to vote on the videos providing the most helpful information.
One grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 Discover gift card, and all finalists will receive a complimentary full-year subscription to Equifax Complete™ Family Plan, a credit monitoring and identity theft protection product for the entire family.
“The information shared every day on the Equifax Finance Blog is intended to help consumers become more knowledgeable and equipped to manage important personal finance matters,” said Trey Loughran, president of the Personal Solutions unit at Equifax. “With this video contest, we want to give families the opportunity to share and learn of helpful suggestions and strategies for making the most of every dollar in the household budget.”
“We know that millions of Americans are feeling the pinch as they fill their gas tanks and pay their bills each week, and we want to help,” said Ilyce Glink, managing editor of the Equifax Finance Blog and a radio talk show host for WSB-AM in Atlanta. “The video contest has been designed to make it easy to enter and easy to share your money tips with your friends, family and others engaged in our contest.”
