The Rest

Giveaway: The Personal Financial Calculator for Dummies

October 7, 2011

I returned from the Financial Blogger Conference with a bag full of swag. I threw on the t-shirt, ate the candy, and gave the stress ball and mouse pad to my son.

But I want to give one of you the the coolest thing by far.

The Personal Financial Calculator for Dummies lets you:

  • Calculate loan payments
  • Figure credit card interest
  • Set savings goals
  • Plan for college and retirement.

It’s user-friendly, with color-coded and clearly labeled keys, and it comes with an instruction booklet. According to its creators, it is

made for Main Street, not Wall street.

Now if you’re a numbers nerd like me, your heart skipped a beat when you saw the picture. Or you may be much cooler than that, but could use something like this to improve your finances.

Either way, be sure to enter the giveaway. (I think this would also make a great learning tool for older kids.)

You can enter up to three different times. Here’s how:

  1. Leave a comment on this post telling me whether you’re a numbers nerd or not.
  2. Like The Family CEO on Facebook and leave a (separate) comment below telling me you did.
  3. Subscribe to The Family CEO by email or RSS and leave a (separate) comment telling me you did.

This Sunday evening, October 9, I will select a winner using the random number generator and post the results here.

Good luck!

Edited to Add: And the winner is

Kay Lynn @ Bucksome Boomer!

Thanks so much for entering, everyone. I’m so happy to know there are more numbers nerds and aspiring numbers nerds out there.

Look for more giveaways soon.
















  1. I am also a numbers nerd. I have made myself ceo of my family. Thank you so much for the encouragement. I learned so much from your blog.

  2. OMG I’m so jealous that you got this in your bag. Apparently this was a hot item and they ran out quickly :( I didn’t get one. It looks so cool though. I’m totally a numbers geek, and this looks like the best calculator of all time haha

  3. I am a newbie to your site but I love all the information you give.
    I love numbers so much that my 2 year is counting in English, Spanish and French. And I am teaching her to be a extreme little couponer.
    She also carries calculators instead of dolls so I guest I am a number nerd. Looking forward to hear from you that I won this great giveaway.
    Thank you,
    Inez

  4. I am a science nerd-somewhat a “numbers”dummy,but I’m a financial ‘idiot’.
