We all love The Amazing Race, but there are a lot of people who may never get a chance to play themselves. Maybe they are too lazy to apply. Maybe they can’t find a partner to play with. Maybe they say that can’t find a partner to play with but really just have no friends. Maybe they’ve applied many times but just never get picked as a finalist. For all of you people, we have the answer for you. It’s called Up Your Budget, month long, weekly treasure hunt where you have a chance to win $10,000. Like The Amazing Race, Up Your Budget has clues. Unlike The Amazing Race, Up Your Budget doesn’t have Phil. Then again, anybody can play, and you still have three more chances to win. Read more about this game after the jump.I first heard about Up Your Budget when they submitted an ad to TVgasm. I couldn’t figure out what the ad was for, and when I clicked on it, it took me to the blog Up Your Budget, which has the rules and the FAQ in case you want to know more information. The problem was, I was still confused with what was going on, but I think have the gist of it.
Up Your Budget is sponsored by Budget Rent-a-Car. It’s a treasure hunt that asks you to figure out a specific spot in a certain city based on a series of clues. The cities are in one of four regions, East, West, North, and South, and each region will have four different cities/locations featured, one per week. The first week ended October 30th, which means there are three weeks left.
Visiting the Up Your Budget blog will give you video clues, some that may be helpful and some that may and try to throw you off track. Once you find the sticker, you need to have photographic or video proof. If you are the first person to send in the sticker for your region, you will win the $10,000 cash prize. Apparently, I haven’t been up on my blogosphere readings, because I haven’t seen it mentioned, even in the blogs that I read that are supposed to be taking part of the promotion. So maybe you have already heard of it, but I think it deserves a mention. If you are close to one of the cities, it could be a fun little thing to do. If you’re interested, sign up at Up Your Budget and get started.
P.S. I usually don’t find it necessary to mention advertisers in our posts, but I thought some of the readers would find it fun, and the ad totally confused me.
