October 2017 Contest: Respond with a guess on how much I will save this trip.

I previously tweeted the amount I saved purchasing my base passes for this trip.

Over the course of this trip I will be publishing a daily video journal on the BudgetEars YouTube Channel going over how much I saved each day over the course of the trip which goes from October 27, 2017 to November 5, 2017.

Guesses are due on Twitter by 11:59:59 PM on October 31st. Respond to the tweet linked to in this post with your guess. The closest without going over will win a $10 Disney Gift card. However, if I get up to 1000 followers on Twitter and 500 subscribers on YouTube I will up the prize to a $50 Disney Gift Card.

Respond to the following tweet with your guess. If everyone happens to go over, the closest overall tweet will win. If there is a tie, the first person to guess that amount will win.

My Disney Savings: September Contest

#BudgetEars September contest for a $10 #DisneyGiftCard rules.

In September the contest will be simple. I recently went to Disney World with some family friends. My wife has an Origami Owl business and their national convention was in Orlando. Obviously we took this as another opportunity to bring our families to Disney World!

The trip was 4 days and we had a group of 4 adults and 5 children. I will be making a video and publishing it at the end of the month on my YouTube Channel  with the total savings from that trip.

The pinned tweet for the month of September will contain a link to this blog post. Respond to that tweet by 11:59 Central time on September 30th with your guess as to how much I have saved during that trip. The person who is the closest without going over will win a $10 Disney Gift Card. Ties will go to the person who guessed that amount first. If everyone happens to go over, the closest guess will win (ties still going to the person who guessed the amount first).

If I reach 1000 followers on Twitter and 500 subscribers on my YouTube channel I will increase the prize to a $50 gift card.

You may ask me questions on Twitter (or here) about that trip for more details on what we did.
