SaveUp’ hosted a No Spend Challenge for the month of January to help people get a good start on their 2013 financial resolutions. The challenge recently came to a close, and the winners shared a little bit about their financial goals for this year.

Even though the challenge is over, you can still play for great prizes on SaveUp, just for saving money and paying off debt.

And without further ado, here are the winners:

Shari C.
Wise Bread Special Jackpot Winner

Kerry M.
No Spend Challenge winner

Kerry has been using SaveUp for over a year: “I’ve been working very hard to pay off my credit card debt, and I love seeing the grand totals of debt paid off and money saved. The positive reinforcement helps keep me on track and the games are a fun way to start my morning!” 

Katrina G.
Social Challenge winner

Katrina used the No Spend Challenge to help her focus on her savings goals: “It has definitely made me more conscious about reaching my savings goals by spending less.”

Jose P.
Social Challenge winner

Jose has great plans for his winnings: “SaveUp makes saving money fun. What do I plan on doing with the $1,000 winnings, you ask? SAVING IT OF COURSE! I have a goal to someday see my savings accounts in the 6 figures, and with SaveUp on my side, this dream can become a reality!”

Thomas S.
Social Challenge winner

Thomas says the challenge helped him cut down his spending: “[The No Spending Challenge] was hard at first. I am very quick to buy stuff I think I need with my credit card, but the challenge gave me an extra incentive to only buy the things I needed and to pay with cash instead.”

Nicole D.
Social Challenge winner

Nicole is now more aware of her spending habits: “The challenge made me realize how easy it is to spend my money more thoughtfully. My goal is to keep this in mind throughout the year to get my finances back on track. I plan to use my prize to decrease my debt even further. Thanks SaveUp!”
