Smart Dollar

Smart Dollar’s annual February global contest is back again . . . and Smart Dollar has bigger cash prizes than ever before! Every week in February, Smart Dollar will be drawing two $500 winners. At the end of the month, Smart Dollar will be drawing one lucky winner for the grand prize—$5,000! That amount of money can put a dent in any Baby Step. But as always, consistent budgeting and tracking in SmartDollar is the ultimate goal for long-lasting results and a happier, healthier lifestyle. 
This contest will run from February 3 to February 28. There is no eligibility deadline—anyone can create an account and jump in at any time before the end of the contest. Users who sign in and complete an activity to earn SmartDollar Points will automatically earn entries!
