It’s good to say thank you.
Not only can being grateful make you happier, it might just pay dividends.
That might mean a donor giving more to a thankful charity, an employee putting in longer hours for an appreciative boss or—vice versa—a boss or coworker helping out an appreciative colleague down the road.
This week, saying thank you can also win you $50.
American Express has generously offered to provide five $50 “Thank You” gift cards to Money Under 30 readers in recognition of Administrative Professionals week.
(Amex has also created a Recognize and Reward Sweepstakes at ForEverythingYouDo.com, where professionals can recognize a standout administrative professional, colleague or peer and enter them to win Gift Card prizes.)
To enter THIS contest, simply share the best “thank you” you’ve ever received in a comment. Who thanked you, and how? What’d you do to deserve it? It could be at work—from a boss or colleague—but it doesn’t have to be.
I’ll pick one winner to receive a $50 gift card each workday this week. (One entry per reader…more comments won’t get you more entries, sorry!)
I look forward to reading your stories, and I’m pleased to be able to offer this contest as a small THANK YOU of my own to you, my awesome readers!
Note: The contest is now closed, but comments are still open…the stories shared are awesome and if you want to share your best “thank you”, we’d certainly love to hear it!
Disclaimer: Obviously, American Express is providing the gift cards that I’ll be giving away, but I did not receive any additional compensation to run this post or contest.
