Leap Day Giveaway!

Posted February 28th, 2012 in Giveaways by Jeremy Waller

In the spirit of the all-important holiday that only comes once every 4 years I’ve decided to launch my first giveaway on Personal Finance Whiz!

Up for grabs is a $25 gift card to Amazon. (If Amazon isn’t your thing I’m also happy to send the winner cash via PayPal.)

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Irish tradition that a woman has the opportunity once every 4 years to propose to her non-committal man on leap day.  In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves.

So guys, if your lady proposes to you on February 29 and you refuse – you can use the gift card to buy her 12 pairs of gloves.

(Seems like I’m having some issue with Rafflecopter at the moment. If you can’t see the entry form below, please try a different browser until I can get this sorted out. Thanks!)
