Tuesday, June 18th – Live TweetChat: Teaching Grads About The ‘Real World’

Posted in Community, What's New

There are some life lessons your kids just pick up themselves. Others, though, may best come from you – including how to handle personal finance in adulthood. The key is knowing what to teach them.

To learn more on how to give your young grad a leg up on spending and saving after commencement, join Ally Bank and featured guest Bankrate.com for a live Twitter chat on Tuesday, June 18th, at 2 PM ET / 11AM PT. You’ll have an opportunity to share ideas and get tips on Teaching Grads About The “Real World.” Plus, RSVP below and you’ll have a chance to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards!

Here are the details:

Topic: Adulthood 101: Teaching Grads About The “Real World”

The Twitter Chat will cover putting away money toward a first home, paying off student loans and why it’s smart to get a head start on saving for retirement. We’ll even talk about how to tell when you’re giving them a little too much help.

How to participate

Use the hashtag #AllyBRChat to take part in the chat. For an easy way to keep track of the conversation, click over to our Twitter chat room.

Prizes

Two lucky winners will each receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

How to enter to win

RSVP by leaving a comment below with your Twitter handle and your Twitter URL to enter. You must be following @AllyBank and @Bankrate during the chat to find out if you are a winner!
