Lending Club $100 Giveaway

Email  Print Print  

Stack of MoneyHow would you like to win a hundred bucks?

The fine folks from LendingClub are giving away $100 to one Bargaineering reader. As one of the only peer to peer lending marketplaces still doing business right now, Prosper entered a quiet period as it completes its regulatory filings. If you want to borrow or lend money, LendingClub is one of the only ways you can right now. A week ago, I posted a video explaining how peer to peer loan marketplaces like LendingClub are really helping people out of jams. Today, they’re ready to give a hundred bucks to one lucky reader.

Here’s what you have to do to get an entry in the contest:

  • Leave a comment on this post before noon, February 20th, and,
  • Become a free registered member of LendingClub.

The second requirement, to register for free at LendingClub as a lender, is so that they can deposit the $100 directly into your account. You can withdraw that money immediately (or invest it, your choice).

Easy right?

I’ll select a winner at high noon on February 20th, email them for their LendingClub username, and he or she will be credited with $100 in their account. Void where prohibited.

The contest has closed, Bobby was randomly selected to win the $100! I notified him tonight but if he doesn’t respond in a week, I’ll select another name.

    If you pick me, that means I can buy food for the next month without having to donate my blood and plasma…

  6. Matt says:

    Haha. I figured, Jim. I was kidding. (Mostly.)

  7. Patrick says:

    I am already a lending club member and a prosper member. I signed up for both of them last year just before Lending Club went quiet as Prosper is now. I didn’t do much with either, but now that LC is done with the quiet period – it is a little more attractive. Add $100 – and it would definitely be very attractive. 🙂

  8. Hank says:

    Count me in…

  9. Patrick says:

    Thanks Jim. I’m in.

  13. claire says:

    I’m all about this.

  14. Would love a chance to win-Thanks!

    I realize that you are a fan of The Lending Club and are providing a link to them, but it would help to have a well-rounded report about them, as not all reports are glowing. Lending Club promotes itself through many contests, and they encourage websites to provide links to them by paying referral fees. Because of this practice, it is difficult to find unbiased reviews of The Lending Club.

    Here is a review from someone who actually used the Club:

  16. Juan says:

    I’d love to win too!

  17. Morp says:

    Sounds good, thanks! I’m also a member of Lending Club.

    I am already a member with lending club (well just recently) and have began investing in loans. I should write a review at some point documenting everything I have done.

  19. Dan says:

    I also recently joined Lending club after watching my accumulating funds in prosper languish.

    Honestly, I find the Lending Club site to be much more refined and more easily understood than Prosper ever was.

  21. Lmay says:

    What an interesting idea. Definitely instill community too – wow.

  22. Habanero says:

    Lending club is a good idea …

  23. Kremer says:

    Oh oh, Pick me! Pick Me!!

    Seems like an interesting way to invest money, although the skeptic in me would always be nervous about the guy on the other end. Maybe a cool $100 would help me get started…

  24. Julia says:

    I really enjoy using lending club.
