Would you like to be one of six lucky participants in the Absa/City Press Money Makeover competition? The Money Makeover will run over six months, and candidates will receive help and advice from experts to get their finances in order and achieve their unique financial goals.
During the six-month period, each eligible participant will stand the chance of winning incentive prizes upon reaching certain pre-agreed milestones. At the end of the competition, a cash investment prize will be awarded to the participant who best manages to remain on track and successfully realise their financial goals.
The competition will run from October to March next year. All applicants need to meet the following criteria: You must older than 18. You must have a transactional account with Absa into which you deposit your monthly salary.
You must earn a monthly salary/income of R20 000 or more (this can be a variable income if you are selfemployed or a freelance worker). Entrepreneurs with a small start-up business are welcome to enter.
You must not be overindebted to such an extent that you are blacklisted with legal action taken against you in terms of your debt. You must not be under debt review. You must be prepared to be filmed, have your photograph taken and have your first name appear in City Press, as well as Absa and City Press’ social-media channels.
You must commit to a six-month personalised financial fitness programme.
You must successfully complete all the tasks and reach all the goals assigned to you.
