What Would YOU Do With $7,000 A Week For Life?

Would You Spend Or Save

Hello Everyone!

I’m SO excited about our upcoming $7,000 a Week for Life Prize Event! I mean it’s our LARGEST WEEKLY LIFETIME PRIZE EVER! How cool is that? With THAT much money, you can’t help but dream about all the ways you could spend it! From fancy vacations to shopping sprees, the possibilities are ENDLESS! For some people, living the good life and spending ALL this money on whatever life has to offer seems like the only way to go, but for others, they may have bigger plans in the works for their new fortune!

It’s got to be a hard choice deciding whether to work towards something GRAND, or to indulge in the moment. To help gain some outside perspective about what others would do in this situation, I turned to my co-workers to find out if they would SPEND IT or SAVE IT! Even though they can’t win because they work here, their answers may surprise you!

The first person I asked was one of our Social Media interns, Genevieve P.! Genevieve told me that deciding whether to spend or save is definitely a tough choice for her, but in the end, she would do BOTH! She said that she would save some of the money to pay for her college tuition, but also spend some of the money to invest in a reliable car, and a new house for her father. That’s SO sweet of you, Genevieve!

I went on to ask Brooke O. what she would do with all that CA$H! Brooke told me that she would have NO PROBLEM spending all of that money! I’m with you girl! Even though she mentioned that she would splurge on luxurious vacations and possibly a boat, she also said that saving for a house would be VERY important to her. Good choice, Brooke!

Morgan B. told me that when it comes to $7,000 a Week for Life, she would save that money and use it to pay off her college loans! What a GREAT idea Morgan! Way to better yourself for the future!

Finally, I decided to ask Amanda C. Apparently, saving AND splurging is her way to go! She told me that first, she would splurge a good chunk of her money to land her dream home (AW!), and then save the rest and make it last! You might need a bigger piggy bank, Amanda! :)

As for myself, I would save most of it, but spend some on a nice family vacation. I would love the opportunity to bring my parents to Greece or Italy and visit family I never was able to meet!

$7,000 a Week for Life is DEFINITELY A LOT of money to have at your fingertips, so having a game plan on what to do with all of it might be a smart choice! Think about what you would do – spend, save, or maybe BOTH, and comment below and let us know!

And remember what I always say — you can’t win it if you’re not in it! Be sure to keep entering every day!

$7000 a week is pretty much an unfathomable amount of money! Bills and debt would come first, of course! Then, fixing up the house to sell and move into a bigger one, getting the fiancé a new car, spend on the kids, start 401Ks, give tons to charities and much more!

I would spend some but be very conservative because with what little money I draw a month I don’t get to do either on. It takes it all to live from month to month.

I see the SuperPrize as an item for stewardship, rather than for self. Obviously, I would use some of it to improve my life, but the main part and main aim would be to help some of the countless people in need unemployed, homeless, ill without help. I would use some to help improve the conditions for some of our animals – many of them live in suffering. I often hear, “why doesn’t somebody do something about ‘it’?” I would very much like to try my best to help. John Riley.

I would get a center going for abused women and children. so they would never have to return to their abusiors . the center would help them find homes, jobs, councling,and help them make a new life for themselves. I was abused from my husband and I was told that i had to go back to my abusive husband. so i picked up my kids and we left and we didn’t look back. ifs been hard on my family and I but I refuse to give in . so i teach my family how to be strong . I went to college and got my AA degree in business. and i am nine classes from my bachlors degree.now my family is grown up but what i taught my family was that if we were together that we always had love . we were lucky and got out alive from our abusior .now i want to help others to find the safe place where they will never be abused again. so they will also find the strenth and love that my family I have.

I would also help my Mom, buy myself a new car, and either help fund a center for abandoned/abused children or build a new center and call it “My grandmother’s name Children.” She always helped people – children and adults. She would say “if we can get the parents on the right path the children will follow, then everyone’s happy.”

Hi Danielle
Well…Even though $7000 a week for life is a big number I think after taxes it would be around $5000. I am unemployed at the moment so at that rate if I lived with the basics I could pay off my 2 mortgages and bankruptcy in about 6 months. After that I would take a trip to see my daughter and grandchildren who I haven’t seen in 5 months already. After that…life is grand.

I have never really been interested in an extravagant lifestyle. The home I am buying now is just big enough for my family with a couple of extra rooms. But it will be nice to not have to struggle with the payments. I won’t have a problem with enjoying life to the fullest and also saving because I don’t want TOO much. Just a chance to enjoy nice food, make my family happy, and help out a few true friends. I really need a chance to start over and do better than I have before.
