American Express Gift Cards Giveaway Contest

Hank from My Investing Blog dot com is running a contest giving away 3 American Express gift cards for $150, $100, and $50, which are sponsored by Market Leverage.

The winners will be chosen by Random number generator on August 6, 2008 @ 12pm Pacific Standard Time(PST). There are many methods to gain entries in this contest and one of them is to provide a writeup based on the question “If you were given $50,000USD (tax free) today, what would you spend it on?”and post it on our blog.

Well, if I had a windfall of $50,000USD (tax free) today, I would make use of it to fulfill one of my dream. First of all, I would set aside half of it for my kids education fund before I think about how to spend it. As I am kind of risk averse when it comes to investments, I would put the $25,000 in a fix-deposit account. Then I would donate $5000 to a local charity serving the old and poor.

Next I would use a small portion of the money to get a high-end HD camcorder and also budget $10,000 for a 2-weeks tour of Beijing for 2 to experience Summer Olympic Games. I’m sure the HD camcorder will really come in useful to record this once-in-a-lifetime Olympic experience.

After the trip, I’ll use whatever balance amount to pay off my housing mortgage. When the money is all set aside and spent, I’ll get back to real life and STOP dreaming!

It was a good dream while it lasted for the length of this post!
