What's summer without a party? Next week I'm hosting a another Twitter party, and it's a bongga one, combining two of my favorite things -- summer and saving! WhiteFence.com, an online search-and-save service, will be sponsoring a Twitter party to celebrate summer and all the ways that families can save on their bills this summer. We'll be talking about the fun ways to enjoy summer and how to save on them -- as well as giving away some fabulous prizes.
WhiteFence is a free service that allows users to enter their address and find a price comparison of energy, cable, internet, and phone offers, specific to their area -- perfect for families planning to move this summer or who are just looking to make sure they aren’t overpaying on basic utilities.
What: a WhiteFence.com Summer Savings Twitter Party
Why: To share ideas on summer fun and summer savings -- and win great prizes!
When: Thursday, June 24th 7:00-8:00pm EST (4:00-5:00pm PST)
Where: on Twitter (You will need to have a twitter account, it is extremely simple to sign up!)
How: Follow the #wfparty hashtag (You can use services like TweetChat or TweetGrid to follow the conversation) -- and don't forget to follow your hosts, @bonggafinds and @whitefence, on Twitter throughout the party for contest details, updates, and prize information.
Here's a list of all the great prizes you could win at the WhiteFence Summer Savings Twitter Party:
3 winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate from Target!
1 winner will receive a $50 gift certificate from Best Buy!
