Official rules here.
You’ve probably heard it a lot over the last few days – 2020 isn’t just a new year, it kicks off a whole new decade.
A lot can change in 10 years, including your financial situation. Blink once – you have student loans to pay off. Blink again – a mortgage. Blink three times – you have new additions to the family that call for a totally different budget. While all of this can feel so daunting, we know that you’ve been through changes before, and that you will continue to roll with the punches as they come.
We recognize that everyone’s budgets in 2020 are at completely different places. Some are in a good place and some have seen better days. No matter where you fall, there’s no better time than now to focus on improving your financial future. Your goals are yours and yours only, and you should be proud of what you set out to accomplish.
The dawn of a new decade is a time when many of us realign our aspirations for the future, including mapping out our personal finance journey. However, discussing where we are financially can be quite uncomfortable. That’s where the meme comes in!
As part of our #NewDecadeNewYou campaign, we want you to recognize where you are in your current financial journey and where you want to be by 2030. Think of this as a way to manifest your financial future — through memes.
HOW TO ENTER THE SWEEPSTAKES
To participate in the sweepstakes, create a meme to illustrate how you feel about your budget right now and how you want to feel about it in 2030. In your caption, tell us what it means! Your 2020 vs 2030 meme(s) can either be stitched into one or you can upload two pictures, side by side, in the same entry. Share your creations on your personal Instagram or Twitter account, tagging Mint (@Mintapp on IG and @Mint on TW) and use the hashtags #NewDecadeNewYou and #Sweepstakes in all your entries in order to be eligible to win. You can enter once a day, on both platforms, for a maximum of two entries per day to maximize your chances of winning the $5,000!
As you’re creating your memes, ask yourself two questions:
- How would I describe my current financial situation?
- How do I want to feel about it in 2030?
To give you some inspiration, check out our example below:
Simple, right? The #NewDecadeNewYou sweepstakes kicks off today, January 3rd, and you have until January 17th to share your memes. Shortly after, one lucky winner will be chosen at random and awarded $5,000 to kick off their decade with a bang!
