Ally Bank and FinCon12: Announcing the #AllyBloggerQuest Scavenger Hunt

Ally Bank is proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of the 2012 Financial Blogger Conference, taking place in Denver from September 6 – 9. FinCon12 is a four-day event that will bring together the voices of the financial blogging community to share ideas and insights. If you’re attending, you can compete for a $250 gift card by participating in #AllyBloggerQuest, the Ally Bank and FinCon12 scavenger hunt.

All you need to play is a Twitter handle and a camera phone. The rules are simple: Find at least five bloggers from the list below at the conference. (You’ll be able to identify them by their #AllyBloggerQuest stickers.) Get your picture taken with each of the bloggers you locate and upload your photos to Twitter, along with the hashtag #AllyBloggerQuest and the blogger’s name or Twitter handle.

The competition is only open to conference attendees and will last from noon to 6 p.m., MDT, on Saturday, September 8. Players who get their picture taken with at least five bloggers during #AllyBloggerQuest will be entered into a drawing to win a $250 gift card from Ally, and the opportunity to be featured on Straight Talk.

    I would just like to thank Ally for their continuing support of FINCON, and the PF blogging community as a whole. The #allybloggerquest was a great idea, and it went very well.

    Thanks again, Ally!

    There is no doubt that having the national event in Denver this year energized the community and even helped the group uncover new members that we didn’t even know were in our midst 😀
