Great Resources From the Debt Movement Community

Wow! To say that I’m not blown away would be big fat lie.

The interest and support of the Debt Movement has been absolutely amazing. As I type this out we currently have over 600 people signed up and almost $17,000 of debt paid off in the first few days.

It’s happening.

We are changing people’s lives.

“Debt is like any other trap, easy enough to get into, but hard enough to get out of.”
-Henry Wheeler Shaw

 Paying Down Debt Together

In addition to the Debt Movement, there are some other great challenges going on helping you get out of debt and changing your spending habits.

One of the top New Year resolutions is to save more and stick to a budget. Research shows if you can change your behavior for 30 days you are likely to stick to your goals. Join the SaveUp 30 Day No Spend Challenge — and kick start the New Year right — and get in on some great cash rewards. Be a champion for your personal economic recovery.

How It Works

Choose any credit card in your wallet and commit to 30 days of no spending on that card by registering it for the SaveUp No Spend challenge.
The more days you check-in and stick to your challenge the more chances you have to win the grand prize of $5,000 to pay down your debt.

BONUS: Be a champion for change — share to bring others to the SaveUp No Spending Challenge and win an additional $5,000 in rewards.

 The Debt Challenge

With the challenge there are also chances to win prizes as you go through the process.   Nothing like getting rewarded for getting out of debt!

I’ve reached out to Lynette to participate in one of our upcoming Google Hangouts.  She’s an awesome resource which makes AARP’s Pay Down Your Debt Challenge that much more enticing.
