It has been exactly one year since MDJ was born and it has been a great year. We've grown from 0 to over 1200 subscribers during this time and now receive over 65,000 page views a month.
To thank you for your loyalty and support, MDJ is holding a big birthday draw with a bunch of great prizes ($350+ worth). To keep the prizes exciting, I contacted a few associates to sponsor prizes.
All contestant entries will be shoved into an electronic hat and drawn at random. Since there are 6 prizes available, the odds of winning are fairly high. To be fair to all contestants, each winner can only win once.
Here are the 6 prizes up for grabs:
I'm excited to announce that Derek from RedFlagDeals.com has generously donated a brand new Canon a570 IS digital camera package to a lucky reader ($220 value). What is RedFlagDeals? It's likely Canada's most popular "deal/bargain" portal with over 1 million deal seeker visitors / month. I've pretty much been a member since it started 7 years ago and I still visit the site/forums every day.
Want to know more about the digital camera? I've actually been doing a lot of research on the best "bang for your buck" digital camera and this one is near the top of the list. The Canon a570 IS has 7.1MP, 4x Optical Zoom, 2.5" LCD, manual controls, supports conversion lenses, only uses 2 AA batteries and includes image stabilization. I wish I could enter the contest myself. :)
Included in the grand prize:
- Canon a570 IS (Image Stabilization) Digital Camera (technical spec)
- Lowepro Rezo 50 Carrying Case
- 1GB SD Memory Card
- $50 Amazon.com/.ca (or Chapters) Gift Certificate.
Other Prizes (4):
- 2 x $25 Amazon.com/ca (or Chapters) Gift Certificate (1 per winner).
- Copy of a hardcover investing/trading book: The Brainwashing of the American Investor.
- Copy of a Canadian best seller: The Lazy Investor. Thanks to the author (and early retiree) Derek Foster for donating an autographed copy.

Good luck on the draw!
