This contest is as simple as pie!

  • Visit BillShrink.com and take a look at their lovely spokesmodel (wearing green) featured on their homepage.
  • Think of a cool nickname for her and write your answer in the comments below before 11:59 pm, August 14th, 2009. 
  • Make sure you leave your name and email address when filling out the comments so we can contact you if you win.

That's it!  We'll randomly select an entry and announce the winner on August 15th.

Limited only to US residents and those of legal age.

What is BillShrink?

Cap from Stop Buying Crap has a detailed description of BillShrink's service:

Frequently getting overage charges from your cell phone plan? Billshrink.com may be able to help you sort through hundreds of different cell phone plan and help you find the best plan to save you money.

Billshrink is pretty easy and straightforward to use. Choose the service that you want to compare (wireless or credit cards), input your calling or spending pattern and Billshrink will spit out a list of possible alternatives.

Personally, I'm going to call her Vera.

Editor's Note: The contest is closed.  The winner is Eileen's suggestion Myranda Money.  Congratulations Eileen!

She kind of has a pixie look about her - I'd call her "Shrinkerbell". But for a real name, I'd call her "Ava" or "Fritzi"

Julia Roberts' thrifty twin.

How about Celine the billshrink queen.

Jill, the BillShrinker

She looks golden to me, so I suggest Orolita.

Guest's picture

Randomly selected? Then I guess it is OK if I give a duplicate answer: Jill, she'll shrink your bill!

To me, she looks like a Becky. Becky Billshrinker.

Trixie, but I have no idea why. That's the first name that came to mind when I saw her picture.

I agree that she looks a lot like Julia Roberts. Maybe she's a Julie instead of a Trixie. :)

Billshrinkin' Brenda

Because Brenda appeals to the general public.

This is Mandy. Mandy is smiling because she just saved hundreds of dollars on her cell phone bill by using Billshrink.

Green elf.

First thing that popped in my head.

Guest's picture

The names Laurel and and Eve both seem to fit her. Have a wonderful day!

Her nickname is:

Savesum Anee (Save some money)

Tink!

"Just think...BillShrink, Tink."

First name that came to mind was Eva.

How about Verde (green in Spanish & Italian)

Guest's picture

Llib, because it's bill backwards, or in reverse, and that's exactly what we want to do, reverse our bills : )

Carry it further and see Llib as a more liberal thinker, liberated from the ties that bind, contracts, fixed fees and user fees...you get the idea.

Miss Dollar Back

Green Irene, the savings queen

I think the best name would be Penny... very fitting.

Kind of reminds me of the girl in 'inspector gadget' cartoons growing up. LOL.

billinda, billina, isabill or betsy bill

Personally I think giving her a real name like "flo" from the progressive car insurance commercials would be best.

In that case she looks like a sarah or melanie.

She looks like a pixie. But that has nothing to do with bill shrinkage. Maybe Tinkerbell, the magic money saving fairy :)

Since Miss Moneypenny has already been taken, I go for the still money-related and adorable: Penny!

Myranda Money (although I too, think she looks like a Poppie, I guess alternately she could be Poppie Pennysaver)

Guest's picture
avard

I think she looks like a Jayla

Guest's picture

I like Sally. Even though technically, it's NOT a nickname. It's sweet and friendly and approachable. Plus it's a throw back name which makes people trust them more.

Straight-up nicknames? I'd say The Green Lady.
