Congrats to our $50 Amazon Gift Card Winner Denisa! American Express will be contacting you shortly to claim your reward.
American Express, in conjunction with Jean Chatzky, is sponsoring a National Money Talk Night on Thursday, September 16th 2010 in the hopes of providing young adults with a better understanding of managing their finances independently.
Parents are asked to visit www.MoneyNightTalk.com to download and view available resources and ask as many questions as possible. Then, on September 16th, sit down with your kids and have the Money Talk. If you need to, use the website during your discussion to answer any questions your children might have and hopefully the entire family will come out a little wiser in the end.
In celebration of National Money Night Talk, we’re hosting a giveaway around family finances. We want to know from you, what is one tip you have given your teen or young adult on ways to manage money better? Post your answers in the comment section and enter to win a $50 Amazon.com Gift Card, courtesy of American Express. In addition to winning the prize, American Express will pick their favorite tips from this giveaway to post on the National Money Night Talk website. We’ll announce the winner Friday morning at 8amET and provide American Express with your email so you can be contacted and claim your prize.
If you’re looking for an example tip, allow American Express to kick things off:
American Express Cardmembers can add an Additional Card with Custom LimitsSM to their account to manage and track a spending limit created for their teen (age 15+). Parents can easily go online and adjust the limit for their child’s card at any time, and for those 18 and up, the Additional Card positively impacts the teen’s credit score.
If you’re loaded with tips, you can also check out two other personal finance blogs that are hosting this giveaway. Make sure to leave unique tips on each, as any duplicated information will automatically be disqualified.
