Payoff launches today — holla!
Remember those blissful days when our biggest financial concerns centered on how to hoard little colored pieces of paper and plastic in Monopoly? When we thought managing money was fun?
If you thought I was about to say “Remember how those days of financial fun are over?” you’re wrong. “Payoff hopes to inspire a deeper level of engagement in the game of real life,” CEO and founder Scott Saunders said today. It’s a free resource for paying off debt, saving, and giving to others. The site organizes accounts, tracks charges and payments, and recommends tools such as BillShrink to give money management a makeover.
The badges help users manage the steps to reaching financial dreams; users can share them with friends and some even come with cash prizes. Payoff uses a social-gaming approach for defining and accomplishing financial goals so that people can put the “fun” in “funding their dreams.” Take the site for a spin, manage your money with success, and show that game of debt who’s boss.
Be sure to check out their Facebook contest, which will reward $5,000 to the person who answers “What dream would you pursue if you were debt-free?” with the most passionate and compelling story.
