Unless you’re Bill Gates, $1,000 probably sounds pretty good to you, and the cash could be yours this season if you can pick a winner every week.
Following up our own 9/9/09 contest which wraps up tonight — get your comment in now! — Spend On Life sent me some information about the football survivor challenge they’re running this season with a grand prize of $1,000.
You can read all about the Eliminator Football Challenge at Spend On Life, but in short, it’s a free-to-enter football survivor competition in which you’ll select one team each week to win their game straight up. Once you’ve selected a team, you won’t be able to use them the rest of the season.
The competition will be hosted on ESPN — the password is “creditcard1” — but to be eligible for the money, you will have to leave a comment over at Spend On Life with your ESPN username, an email address and who referred you — in this case, that’d be Fantasy Football Fools — so that you can collect your winnings at the end of the season.
Free shots at $1,000 are hard to pass up, and with the small number of people entering this contest, we all have a good chance of winning. You may regret not joining in on the fun if your fantasy season dries up in Week 8.
Here’s a full play-by-play on how to get in on the action…
It’s easy, just follow these steps below for your chance at $1000:
Step 1: Register a username at ESPN.com if you don’t already have one.
Step 2: Join our group, SpendOnLife using the password creditcard1. Only one entry allowed per person.
Step 3: The rules of the Eliminator Challenge are simple: Predict one winning team each week from all regularly scheduled NFL games. You can’t pick the same team to win twice during the season. So choose wisely! There’s no point spread, you’re simply picking winners. Participants will be ranked according to ESPN’s point system (not SpendOnLife.com).
Step 4: To be eligible for the prize money, you must post a comment below that includes the following information:
- Your ESPN username
- How you heard about our Eliminator Challenge
- Enter your e-mail address in the e-mail field of the comments section. (To protect your privacy, don’t include your e-mail address in the comment itself). We will contact the winner via e-mail.
$1000 will be given to the winner according to the ESPN rankings. (Prize money will be split, in the case of a tie). It’s like the lottery, except way cooler because it’s free and involves football.
Easy enough? After you enter, feel free to start trash talking your fellow Fantasy Football Fools readers in the comments below.
