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.


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! Two winners will be selected at random from everyone who RSVPs. If a chosen winner RSVP’d but did not attend, a different winner will be chosen. (Note: Winners must be U.S. residents, age 18 or older. Winners are randomly selected and announced at the end of the chat.)
