Money Giveaway: The Cost of Living Crisis is really getting people down now. With a record number of people taking on second jobs and people frantically googling “quick ways to make cash” MoneyMagpie have decided to put their hand in their own pocket and offer some help to their readers.
MoneyMagpie asked their readers on Instagram, “would a fiver make any difference to your monthly income” and 78 per cent said that, “yes”, it would.
Therefore we are offering twenty readers £5. There are no strings attached at all. Simply comment on the article with what you would spend the fiver on, and then in two weeks, twenty people will be selected to win the money.
MoneyMagpie founder Jasmine Birtles says, “It really doesn’t feel much in the greater scheme of things, but if it helps a few people then we are more than happy to step in. We have had a record number of people writing in and asking us how to access quick cash, and in reality there aren’t many ways that are safe to the consumer. Therefore we just wanted to offer them a chance. We are strongly against gambling so didn’t want our readers to go there, therefore it’s simply cash.”
So, as stated above, for your chance to get your hands on a fiver, just answer “what would you spend an extra fiver on this month?” in the comments below. The comments will close on Oct 19 at 6pm.
We will notify the winners on Oct 21 and add the names to the article.
Good luck. We look forward to hearing your answers.
I’d give it to my grand daughter for helping with chores
I would put it towards the kids Christmas presents
Hi; I would buy ‘Music Of The Spheres’ by Coldplay
Food bank donation
I would go to my local charity shop and buy the first thing that I see for £5 that makes me smile. I have then bought something fantastic with £5 that I won off Money Magpie. And some charity has gained £5 towards helping their cause.
Put it towards a utility bill it would be like a drop in the ocean
I would spend it on vegetable and flower seeds. So I could grow my own veg – and some flowers to cheer me up when I feel “down”
I would be putting it in my grandson’s pot to help build him up for paying for everything later on.
My local food bank have been amazing and have helped me through some very tough times. The staff are selfless, always welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. I would like to donate £5.00 to them. Maybe tub of chocolates for Christmas?
Congrats! You’re one of our lucky winners. Please can you reply with your email address and we will email you about your prize.
It’s my birthday so it would have to be cake!
