The Money Mix goal is to bring you the latest and greatest money and financial news, stories, and articles from around the personal finance world! We also want to share the love with the many talented personal finance writers out there by sending as much traffic as possible to their sites.
The winner of the monthly Money Mix votes will be automatically entered for a chance to win a Plutus award for producing the best piece of content for the year. Here’s how it works:
- Monday through Thursday, you’ll get four new articles up for a vote
- On Friday, the winners of the M-TH votes will be voted on again to reveal a weekly winner
- On the last Saturday of the month, the weekly winners are put up for a final vote to select the monthly “Best Content” winner
But, that’s not all.
All monthly winners will be automatically entered into the Plutus Award competition for a People’s Choice award for the best content of the year.
Plus, monthly winners will get a free pass to FinCon 2019 in Washington D.C.!
