1st Annual Top Money Guru Poll

I’ve never been one to do “best of” or “award” types of posts but I thought it might be fun to find out, from you guys, the money expert you think should be given Bargaineering’s 1st Annual Top Money Guru award. We’ll be polling personal finance bloggers and readers alike to find out who you all think is the top money guru today.

We wanted to keep the list at ten and we chose ten nearly household names and each one has written an extremely popular book that has tens of thousands, if not millions, of people. I know this list is by no means exhaustive, it only has ten names on it, but it’s a start.

Here are this year’s candidates for the 1st Annual Bargaineering Top Money Gurus Awards:

We will be doing a brief profile of each these next two weeks and the poll will close June 10th.

Here are the five categories:

How the Voting Works:

The voting is simple, there are ten gurus and we have five categories. You simply pick one name for category and winner is the one with the most votes. So you vote once for Most Accessible, once for Most Entertaining, once for Most Helpful, once for Most Respected, and finally once for Most Trustworthy. Then, we have two more drop downs – Favorite and Least Favorite – and you pick one name.

That’s it! We wanted to keep it nice and simple so it wouldn’t take you more than a couple minutes to fill out. Thanks!

$100 Amazon Gift Card

As a bribe prize, we’ll be giving away a $100 Amazon Gift Card to one lucky entrant.

If you’re a personal finance blogger, we have a separate survey just for you. Exact same questions, we just wanted to compare the opinions of personal finance bloggers versus the broader community. Email me for details! [13]
