About the Contest
Send a short video (about 60 seconds long) telling us about your smartest shopping strategy and the most amazing deal it helped you nab in recent months. Your savings score could be large or small--from a new car to some cans of soup. Videos will be judged on a mix of criteria including savings strategy, creativity, percentage saved, video presentation and adherence to the official rules.
We’ll be rounding up video submissions for this contest from February 20, 2013 to March 29, 2013.
After All You editors post eight finalist videos on AllYou.com, you (as in our readers) will be able to vote on your favorite starting April 15, 2013! Our panel of savings experts will ultimately choose the grand-prize winner (who will get a $1,000 cash card and a special photo shoot that will be featured in All You Magazine) and two runners-up (each wins a $250 cash card).
How to Enter
If you’re a finalist: Yay! We’ll send you digital campaign materials via email so you can get all of your friends, family, even strangers to vote for you daily to win the grand prize from April 15, 2013 to May 24, 2013.
If you’re not a finalist: All hope is not lost! You can still win something. Come back to AllYou.com/SmartShopping from April 15, 2013 to May 24, 2013 to vote on your favorite videos. Voters will be eligible to win some awesome gift cards -- $125 to JCPenney, $150 to Target, $200 to Walmart, just to name a few -- in a special voter sweepstakes. (So vote once per day if you can!)
The winner will be announced on August 15, 2013 on AllYou.com and featured in the September 2013 issue of All You Magazine!
