Updated!! H&R Block Online Tax Software Giveaway

****Contest is now over. The winners have  been chosen and notified.

In exchange for publishing the previous post H&R Block is providing me with free copies of the Federal Premium version of their online tax software.  I’m going to be giving away two copies here as well as giving away copies on my other sites.  I’ll provide links to the other giveaways later.  This software should allow you to do your federal taxes for free but if you use it for your state taxes as well you will have to pay a fee for that.

This contest will be a little different than the others I’ve had.  Now that I’m starting to make some decent money online I am forming an LLC and opening a business account for my online businesses.  I could just use my name for the business but I’d like something a bit more creative than that.  I’ll be giving away one copy of the tax software to whomever comes up with the best name for my business.  Creating a name out of the blog name or my name is my preference but if you come up with a good name that doesn’t use either of those I’ll still consider it.  In addition to the copy I give away to whomever comes up with the best name I’ll also give away a copy at random.  Just leave a comment on this post to enter. The winners will be chosen this Monday, February 7,2011.

You can also enter this online tax software giveaway or this tax software giveaway at my other sites.

Challenge Winners: Cash or Gift Card?

There doesn’t seem to be a clear consensus on how the $500 should be distributed but it does seem like most are in favor of everyone receiving a small prize and having one or two big prizes also. There have also been a few people suggesting I give the money to charity. I don’t want anyone to feel pressured into giving their share to charity though. If you want to give your share to charity, contact me and let me know, otherwise your share will go in the prize pool.

I’m going to start by giving everyone either $10 cash via PayPal or a $10 Amazon gift card, whichever you prefer. Luckily, I have built up a bit of credit on Amazon by redeeming gift cards from SwagBucks. It will probably be a week or two before I can contact everyone. If you want to leave a comment with your preference on this post I will give you priority. Please use your same name and email so I can verify your identity.

If you do opt for an Amazon gift card I would appreciate it if you would do your shopping through the Amazon link in the sidebar to the right of this post. That way I will make a little bit of the money back. 🙂

****This giveaway is only for those who entered the $500 weight loss challenge back in May. If you aren’t one of the entrants please don’t comment on this post. Thanks.

Two Year Blogoversary Giveaway

The beginning of the month marked my two year blogoversary. To celebrate Tight Fisted Miser having lasted two years I will be having giveaways all month. My plan is to give away one book a week and one gift certificate or similar prize each week. I’m going to change up the way I conduct the giveaways as well. Some will be of the leave a comment type as I’ve done before and others will be just for subscribers and I might come up with some others ways to conduct the giveaways.

The first giveaway will be for a $5 Amazon e-Gift Card. Just leave a comment to have a chance at winning. The winner will be chosen at random this Friday. Check back tomorrow for this week’s book giveaway.
