$50 MasterCard Giveaway

Just in time for some post-Thanksgiving shopping deals I have an amazing giveaway for you.  One of you lucky readers can win a $50 MasterCard Gift Card, which is completely awesome because you can use it to buy almost anything, however you will be required to provide a W9 in order to receive the gift card.  I had to do it and it's no biggie.  And don't we all sort of struggle to find the perfect gift?


 Here are some tips when it comes to finding the perfect gift:

  • Dining with a Top Chef? Box seats at the Super Bowl? MasterCard helps you give the gift of experience with its Priceless Cities program, which gives cardholders extraordinary experiences, exclusive offers and privileged access to culinary, shopping, sports, travel and entertainment events.
  • Want to avoid the unfortunate yearly tradition of returning or re-gifting? Give your tweens or teen a SpendSmart MasterCard Prepaid card. The card will help teach how to budget and with instant text alerts, keep you connected as purchases happen.

Some tips from MasterCard in regards to holiday shopping:


  • Divide and Conquer:  Don’t do everything yourself. Empower your kids to make their own gift purchases. Set budget limits by loading a MYPLASH Reloadable Prepaid card for them—it works everywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted.
  • Build a Budget:  Write down how much you can afford for gifts, travel and other expenses. Use one credit or debit card for everything to help keep an accurate record. A prepaid card limits spend to the amount on the loaded on the card.

When you're traveling for the holidays

  • Fuel Your Trip: Join a free loyalty program that helps save money at the gas pump. MasterCard’s partnership with Fuel Rewards Network  allows members to do just that.
  • Check Your Offers: Check with your membership associations or credit cards for special travel offers. For example, World and World Elite MasterCard cardholders get valuable saving, upgrades and experiences including ‘best available price’ across all travel categories—air, private jet, cruise, chauffeured car service or rental, packaged tours and concierge.
