Times have been tough lately on the money front and if you’ve been following us, you’ve probably seen all of our prize draws and competitions to help boost your bank balance!
But there’s lots more you can do to recession-proof your finances - and our latest competition, with the chance to win some great prizes, is a great time to do just that!
What is Recession-proof your finances?
This competition will help you feel more confident in your finances in these uncertain times.
We know that the current economic situation can be scary. It can sometimes feel like you’re powerless and that there’s no hope.
BUT - there is hope. And lots of it, at that.
In just 6 minutes, our pathway, ‘How to deal with a recession’, covers all the essentials you need to know to understand:
What a recession is
What causes a recession
How you can survive a recession and come out the other side thriving
Anyone studying at one of our partner universities or colleges who completes the pathway between 17th-28th April 2023 will be entered into our prize draw!
What can I win?
The winner will be randomly picked from everyone that enters the prize draw and will get:
£50 to add to their emergency fund savings, plus
Three of the best personal finance books* to help them learn more about money
So not only will you get money to feel more financially secure - you’ll also get access to more personal finance wisdom to take your learning and financial wellbeing to the next level.
*curated by Blackbullion, of course
My uni/college isn’t on the list!
Unfortunately if your university or college isn’t partnered with us, you won’t be able to take part in the competition - so you won’t be able to see the Recession pathway.
So how do I enter the prize draw?
Log in/register for your free Blackbullion account
Complete the ‘How to deal with a recession’ pathway
Collect the ‘Recession-proof’ badge at the end of the pathway
You’ll automatically be entered into the prize draw if you collect the badge between the 17th-28th April - you don’t need to contact us too.
Not sure if you’ve collected the badge? You’ll find it on your ‘My learning badges’ section page.
(Hint: you’ll need to complete the Final challenge in the pathway to collect the badge)
What if I’ve already completed the pathway?
You can still enter the prize draw!
All you’ll need to do is DM us three things on Instagram (@blackbullion) during the fortnight:
What university or college you’re studying at
The email address attached to your account
And we’ll add your name into the prize draw
What else do I need to know?
The winners will be announced on our Instagram Stories and will be contacted by email.
We hope you enjoy learning everything you need to know about recessions and that it helps you feel more in control of your money.
And good luck for the prize draw!
