SOUND OFF: The First Thing These Coloradans Would Spend $30k On
This fall, we once again have your chance to win up to $30,000 from September 18th through October 13th. Listen weekdays for three-digit codes every hour from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. and enter the code into your 95 Rock Mobile app. If you don't already have the app, you can download it below:
To expand on this, there are ten codes per day, and once you hear the code you'll need to open up your 95 Rock mobile app on your phone, open up the Go Fund Yourself page, and enter the corresponding code (for example, 8 a.m. is code one of the day, 9 a.m. is code two, etc.)
Each code is an entry and one lucky winner will be awarded the grand prize of $30,000.
It's always fun to talk about the things that you'd spend the money on if you won it, so I posted a question on Facebook asking Colorado residents what the first thing they'd buy if they won the $30,000 grand prize would be. Unfortunately, the responses largely revealed something quite sad.
Colorado Residents Would Spend $30,000 on This First
While there were some responses that were fun and lighthearted in nature, (see Brandon Cooper's response below,) many of those who replied to my question would use the money first to pay for something less than fun and exciting: debt.
Whether it's a car or truck loan or just bills in general, the vast majority of responses indicated that not only is debt a priority, but the feeling of being free from debt would be more satisfying than doing something fun with the money.
However, not every answer was so depressing, as you'll see below:
