What will you spend the extra cash on?

YOU MIGHT HAVE successfully made it to hump day, but for many people, it’s still over two weeks until payday and things are already starting to look a little bleak.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with social payment app Circle to offer one very lucky reader the chance to have their rent covered for an entire month.

As the latest rental price reports showed as recently as last week, the average cost of renting has risen nationally by 7.37% to €987, which is a considerable amount to set aside each month.

So, we’d like to treat one of our readers to a month’s rent, paid for by Circle – an instant, free, easy and social way to send money to anyone in the world (with the ability to add text, gifs, emojis and images).

Here’s how to make sure you’re in with a chance to spend a month living rent-free:

  1. Download the Circle app.
  2. Enter your details (name, email and password, or you can sign up directly with Facebook).
  3. Verify your phone number and e-mail.
  4. Press request, enter how much your rent is, include a little note telling us why you’d love to win (emojis are encouraged) and send it to rent@circle.com.

Money can be a tricky business. Make things more simple for yourself this month by downloading Circle, an instant, free, secure and fun way of sending money to people no matter where they are in the world. 

Terms and conditions: The winner will be selected at random and contacted by Circle by midnight Friday, August 4th and the prize will be paid into their account. The competition is not open to open to staff of Circle, their immediate family members or associated companies. Prize fund maximum is €1,500. Full Journal Media terms and conditions are available here.
