Details on Macy’s College Lifestyle Contest. Could you use extra funds to help afford a fashionable dorm room when you head to college? If so, check out this post!
Macy’s will select five winners by random drawing to receive a $500 Macy’s gift card through their College Lifestyle Contest. You’ll be able to deck your dorm room out without breaking your already stretched budget (tuition is quite pricey nowadays). They even offer dorm room tips to help you get organized when it comes time to selecting the items you’ll need. The sweepstakes period officially ends on July 31, 2012 and they only allow one entry per person. If you could use some extra furnishings for your dorm room, completing the simple online application could grant you a $500 head-start towards your dream abode.
Again, the application is really easy. You can enter on your phone by texting “DORM” to 62297 (standard messaging rates apply ) or enter via the online application by including basic contact information. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old and be a legal resident of the United States. Macy’s is a well-known department store so you can be sure that the College Lifestyle Contest will have a ton of applicants which will decrease the odds of winning. Even so, with the application being as simple as it is, it shouldn’t take but a few minutes signing up via text or online application. Be sure to look for more contests during the summer months as you apply for scholarships as these are the easiest ways to earn free money. Winning a $500 gift card with virtually no work required is a dream come true and shouldn’t be passed up.
