Win $7,522: The Ditch Your Debt Contest

The average Canadian who carries a credit card balance is about $7,522* in credit card debt. That could buy you a lot of coffee and Tidal subscriptions. Many people who come to Mogo are using MogoLiquid to pay off credit card debt, and using MogoMini/MogoZip to get out of the payday loan cycle. And since our mission is to help you get out of debt and all... we decided to do a Ditch Your Debt contest where you can win this amount in cold hard cash and, well, ditch your debt. Pay off debt faster or... instantly When you sign up with Mogo, every part of the experience—from our products to email newsletters to events—is designed to help you get out of bad debt. “I was becoming overwhelmed keeping up with numerous credit card payments.

#FindTheBride: Finance, Romance and a V-Day Wedding

If you were milling around downtown Vancouver on Valentine’s Day, you might have noticed a bride (or three) running frantically through the streets—with the groom in tow. We’d just done this survey on dating and finances, which gave us some eye-opening insights on finance and romance. SO, we got to thinking about something we could do to raise awareness about it. In a cool way, of course. Enter #FindTheBride: Bride leaves groom at altar after finding out he’s in major credit card debt. Bride runs downtown, followed by groom. They talk. Groom reveals he already got MogoMoney to pay off debt. They ride off into the sunset. CRISIS AVERTED. So how did it all go down? ![](/content/images/2016/02/mogo_findthebride_img1.jpg) First, we had to prep the brides ![](/content/images/2016/02/mogo_findthebride_img2-1.jpg) Then set the stage downtown... ![](/content/images/2016/02/mogo_findthebride_img3-1.jpg) AND GO ![](/content/images/2016/02/mogo_findthebride_img4.jpg) It was pretty dramatic... ![](/content/images/2016/02/mogo_findthebride_img5.jpg) Quite a few people were Team Dan ![](/content/images/2016/02/mogo_findthebride_img6.jpg) ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED ![](/content/images/2016/
