BC Dental TFSA Contest

I recently saw on a tv commercial that the British Columbia Dental Association is holding a $1000 TFSA contest. By visiting its site, here is a little quiz that you can take at http://www.bcdental.org/quiz.php.

The quiz is basically a true or false test about your dental health. After completing it, you can enter your contact information for a chance to win $1000 towards your TFSA contribution. Something simple for people to do if you are looking for money to place in your account.

Scotiabank TFSA Contest

I’m not sure how I missed this before, but Scotiabank is holding a contest where everyday it is giving away $5000 through random draws. You can enter the contest at this page https://5000aday.scotiabank.com/

From what I see you don’t have to have a TFSA account with them initially to enter the contest. As well, the terms seem to indicate that they simply cut you a cheque payable to your name. So in that sense I guess you could use it for anything and not necessarily just for a TFSA account. I personally never won that much money before, but I suppose since they are choosing a winner everyday it doesn’t hurt to try and I got the following e-mail afterwards:

“Thank you for entering the $5,000-a-day TFSA Give-away. Your entry has been successfully submitted and your name entered into the draw.

Whether you’re just starting a savings plan, have taxable investments or are retired, there’s something for everyone with a Tax Free Savings Account. You can:

– Contribute up to $5,000 each year starting January 2009.
– Choose from a range of investments like mutual funds, savings accounts, and GICs.
– Withdraw from your TFSA at any time, for any reason and all withdrawals are tax-free.

All income (interest, dividends and capital gains) earned in your Scotia TFSA is tax-free for life.

Bank of Montreal TFSA Contest

Still working on the site, but while compiling information I’ve noticed that quite a few banking firms are holding contests and incentives for people to open a new tax free savings account with them. The first one I am posting up today is from the Bank of Montreal site.

From what I read at their contest page at http://www4.bmo.com/vgn/tfsa/en/TFSA_contest.html you can enter until January 31st, 2009 for a chance to win $5,000 a year for life that will be deposited into your TFSA account. Not bad I’d say.
