Clark Howard’s New Finance Book [GIVEAWAY x3]

Good mornin’, good mornin’! Have some pimpin’ freebies to give away to y’all today, courtesy of my boy Clark Howard who literally *just* released his new finance book today – Clark Howard’s Living Large for the Long Haul. (Why am I acting as if we’re friends? I’ve never spoken with him before, nor read any of his stuff, haha… But I do hear he’s pretty good with money!)

Here’s a quick bio on him for those in the dark: Clark Howard is a nationally syndicated consumer expert who advises consumers how to save more, spend less and avoid getting ripped off. His radio show is heard every day on more than 200 radio stations throughout North America. He is also co-host of HLN’s nightly news program Evening Express with CNN’s Ryan Smith.

  1. Free Money Minute August 6, 2013 at 6:04 AM

    I want this book because I love getting free stuff, although I rarely win anything. Another reason, a better reason, I want this book is to see how Clark Howard compares to some of the other big name money gurus like Dave Ramsey or Susan Orman.

  2. Laura S. August 6, 2013 at 6:33 AM

    I would like this book because I LOVE Clark Howard. I listen to his podcast every night. Thanks for the chance.

  3. Aimee August 6, 2013 at 6:35 AM

    I’d love to win this book because I feel like I have hit a plateau with my finances. I am not familiar with Clark Howard so he will likely have a lot of ideas I haven’t thought of or read about yet.

  4. Dan August 6, 2013 at 7:01 AM

    Why do you want the book?
    I would like to book to learn new ways to save money. I feel as though I’ve cut everything I can out of the budget and am looking for new ways to continue saving money.

  5. a terrible husband... August 6, 2013 at 7:31 AM

    So I can give it to Dan. Who is Dan? ^^^ that guy ^^^ right ^^^ there!

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 8:54 PM

      Haha… you’re awesome, man.

  6. Jay August 6, 2013 at 8:26 AM

    I’d like to win the book because I need to read more… and not having to pay anything for it is very motivating :)

  7. Brandi August 6, 2013 at 8:46 AM

    I want the book because I’ve been listening to howard on and off for many years. A wise aunt tuned into his show when i was in 6th grade and made me listen to some of his travel advice. Some of which has stuck with me. I hope that by reading the book his advice will sink in more and we can get on the path of early retirement

  8. Thomas S August 6, 2013 at 8:52 AM

    Why do I want this book? Because I’ve just had my second kid and I’m always looking for ways to stretch my dollars.

  9. Nesha August 6, 2013 at 9:10 AM

    I want this book because I need to make a change when it comes to my finances. I will continue the cycle of debt financial security if I don’t make a change.

  10. Courtney Velasquez August 6, 2013 at 9:11 AM

    I want this book so I can read all of the amazing stories and hopefully pick up a tip or two:-)

  11. David Hunter August 6, 2013 at 9:12 AM

    I want the book because I never win anything. Oh, and I’d probably end up giving it to my sister.

  12. Roberta August 6, 2013 at 9:12 AM

    I would love to win this book to share with our four oldest daughters. They are all experiencing issues with finances in one form or another. The most difficult is our daughter who has our 2 year old grandson. After a failed first marriage, she now has a wonderful man standing beside her and their son. However, even with all the attempts he has made, he is not able to find a job to replace the one he recently lost They have had to move back into his mother’s, but one thing always leads to another. She is now signed up to go back to school online to obtain an accounting certificate. We have done several things to help them, but they need to be able to see what to do to help get themselves to a place where they would be able to open a checking account (bank won’t take them right now), have credit cards for emergencies (and pay them off!), even get a loan to buy a car!!! Her mother makes over $90K a year and can’t borrow money because her credit’s so bad. I want all the girls to break that bad cycle and move forward as their dad and I have.

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 8:56 PM

      I’m sorry to hear about all that, what a mess :( Good luck winning one of the books!

  13. Samantha Gross August 6, 2013 at 9:15 AM

    Why do i want to win this book? New marriage + new home + hopefully new baby in the very near future = the Need for smart finances!! :)


  14. Debt Blag August 6, 2013 at 9:19 AM

    Hm. I think I’ll be on the long haul regardless. Would be nice to live large from time to time.

  15. Marge August 6, 2013 at 9:19 AM

    I want this book because I’m in it for the long haul…and I really need direction !!!!

  16. Sue August 6, 2013 at 9:38 AM

    I want this book because I need a new financial direction before I crash and burn.

  17. tracy August 6, 2013 at 9:42 AM

    I’ve hit a plateau and “Dave” doesn’t cut it anymore. I’ve never had consumer debt, and most of his advice is geared towards getting out of that. I want new motivation and “Clark” sounds like a good guy . . .

  18. Brandy August 6, 2013 at 9:43 AM

    I want this book so I can compare myself and realize I need to make a change.

  19. Chung August 6, 2013 at 9:45 AM

    I want to win this book because I want to learn how to save even more but yet still living my life.

  20. Michael August 6, 2013 at 9:45 AM

    I want this book because i have huge amounts of medical bills due from my child and credit card debt that needs to be paid off.

  21. Samantha August 6, 2013 at 9:56 AM

    Oh this book sounds really interesting. I want it because it seems like a nice change of positive examples, instead of sensational “Look at how broke most Americans are, we suck.”

  22. Heather August 6, 2013 at 9:57 AM

    I want this book because I have read many of Clark’s other offerings and loved the advice. I would like to add this to my inventory. ;o)

  23. No Waste August 6, 2013 at 10:01 AM

    I like books AND I like free things.

    I would consider myself to be highly qualified for this giveaway.

  24. Mel August 6, 2013 at 10:14 AM

    I’d love to win a copy for the same reasons as everyone above. I’m always looking for ways to save money, reduce spending and make more money, so this would be a great read! I’m not familiar with him, but always open to new ideas.

  25. Jill Chouinard August 6, 2013 at 10:15 AM

    I want the book because I help people with their budgets all day long and I’m always looking for new information and tools to help people understand.

  26. Jennifer Iley August 6, 2013 at 10:17 AM

    I want to be debt-free in the near future.

  27. Jessica August 6, 2013 at 10:28 AM

    I would like to win the book because I feel like I can always learn something more about finances. Plus it would be nice to win something.

  28. Mistress Susan August 6, 2013 at 10:34 AM

  29. brian August 6, 2013 at 10:38 AM

  30. Shane @ Beating Broke August 6, 2013 at 10:48 AM

    I’ve heard of him before, but never read any of his stuff…

    I want the book to see what all the hype is about!

  31. nGneer August 6, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    I want this book for my dad because he’s a big Clark Howard fan. And because my dad’s awesome :).

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 8:57 PM


  32. Alejandra Gomez August 6, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    I want this book because I love Clark Howard’s advice. I would love an opportunity to learn even more from him in this book.

  33. Lizbeth August 6, 2013 at 10:58 AM

    I want this book because my husband has poor credit and I have been trying to find motivational ways and tips on how he can take responsibility to improve it

  34. Jason White August 6, 2013 at 10:58 AM

    I help people organize their finances and I’m very interested in adding more value to my clients. I believe that by educating myself from others mistakes and successes will enable me to be more effective in improving the financial matters of not only my clients’ lives, but mine too. That’s why I want this book.

    Thanks for the opportunity by the way.

  35. Jon August 6, 2013 at 11:13 AM

    I would like to win this book because I am 41, deep in debt, and need the help!!! Plus my credit score is dismal… :(

  36. Beth-Ann Fisk August 6, 2013 at 11:15 AM

    I would like to win this book because I recently became a single parent with the passing of my husband last December. He was only 35!
    I have two kids, ages 3 and 5.
    Since his passing I have been trying really hard to get my finances in order. Luckly we had mortgage insurance but there was no life insurance and I was left with a big chunk of consumer debt. My goal is to be debt free in five years.
    I have been reading blogs (this one being one of my favourites), and books to help keep me on track.
    I would love to have this book to help me on my journey.

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 8:58 PM

      Oh my gosh wow. How horrible, I’m sorry :( I’ll send some prayers your way too on top of luck for the book giveaway! Hang in there!! You’re blessed with two beautiful kids!

  37. lance August 6, 2013 at 11:18 AM

    I want this book to see people’s creative ideas for living below their means and how they managed a system.

  38. Tricia Kolsto August 6, 2013 at 11:21 AM

    I would love to win a copy of this book as it sounds so inspiring and sounds wonderful!

  39. Dzmitry August 6, 2013 at 11:49 AM

    Why I want this book:
    I love non-fiction books and especially ones that help me with financial tricks and hints. I love reading stories of others who overcame their challenges and their result. At the same time, my girlfriend is the one who really needs the book because of her lack of financial focus (until recently) and her amount of debt. One great thing going for her is that she has a good job, so helping her manage her finances would be the TRUE reason I would like to have this book.

  40. Yana August 6, 2013 at 12:04 PM

    I want the book so that I can get to know what this person Clark Howard is about. I am utterly unfamiliar with him, but always see his name as though I ought to know who he is. Of course, I am interested in personal finance.

  41. Alison August 6, 2013 at 12:04 PM

    I want this book because I love Clark Howard’s advice. We could use some advice on getting better prepared for retirement.

  42. Alice @ Earning My Two Cents August 6, 2013 at 12:06 PM

    I want the book because I am inspired by stories of other people’s money mistakes and the lessons they learned that I can also apply to my life

  43. Kim August 6, 2013 at 12:16 PM

    I’d love to win this book because I’m a fan of Clark’s.

  44. Mel August 6, 2013 at 12:23 PM

    Do I have to choose just one reason I want this book? Ultimately, I like free stuff. But I also love to learn new and fun ways to make the most of my modest income. Oh – but even better, I thought the one Amazon review (posted a week ago) was hilarious and so I’m SUPER curious.

  45. kellee August 6, 2013 at 12:29 PM

    I’m just getting started really managing my personal finances, and I have been reading everything I can get my hands on. I have listened to Clark, and he gives great advice. I’d love to read the book!

  46. kathleen August 6, 2013 at 12:31 PM

    I want the book so I can read and review it!

  47. Jae Han August 6, 2013 at 12:42 PM

    I currently work about 65 hours a week and I would like to use this book to find a way to save money so that I could spend more time with my wife and newborn daughter.

    It is very difficult to share your financial difficulties with your family and friends and therefore, not really getting any real life advises that will help me.

    With real stories of real people in this book, I would like to learn and implement the ways to save more money.

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 9:00 PM

      It is hard to talk this stuff over with other people in the “real world” unfortunately :( That’s why I’m so happy there are blogs and the internet to help w/ it!

  48. Sherri (@ClutterJunkie) August 6, 2013 at 12:52 PM

    I’d like to win this book because:
    1. I’m cheap (or frugal if you want to be trendy about it).
    2. My husband doesn’t want to hear the name “Dave Ramsey” anymore.
    3. I’m more likely to win this than the Powerball (my husband’s self chosen retirement plan).
    4. I used to win cheesy raffle stuff all time and would like to restart the streak on more meaningful items.

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 9:00 PM

      Ahahaha… that is hilarious. Good one :)

  49. Amy August 6, 2013 at 1:07 PM

    I would like to win this book because I want to be frugal enough to stay home with my 3 kiddos!

  50. Jennifer August 6, 2013 at 1:27 PM

    I want this book because:
    1. If I don’t get it, then I will check it out of the library (to save money) and then make so many notes in that I will have to buy it after all.
    2. I want to be a former casino and credit junkie and pay off over $40,000 of debt in 2 years.
    3. I like free stuff!

    Thank you.

  51. Rebecca August 6, 2013 at 1:34 PM

    I have always struggled with my finances. As a result, I read as many different things as I can. I often learn one or two things that help me along the way, so the more I read, the more successful I am!

    Oh – and I don’t pay for books . . .


  52. Chelsea August 6, 2013 at 1:39 PM

    I would love to win this book for my Dad! He is contantly quoting Clark Howard and so I would get crazy daughter points if I gave him Clark’s new book.

  53. Jeffrey August 6, 2013 at 1:42 PM

    I want this book because I will be getting married on August 10th, the day before this contest ends, and I can’t think of a better wedding present. A wedding present that has the ability to keep on giving and to set my future wife and myself up successfully for our futures together.

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 9:01 PM

      Woohoo! Congrats on the marriage, my man! Hope you’re not at the alter thinking about this giveaway, haha…

  54. Shane C August 6, 2013 at 1:45 PM

    I’d like to win this book to see what kind of advice and resources are offered to help me deal with my finances and be able to keep myself on track toward the future. It seems anymore like I’m living paycheck to paycheck and I hate It! I generally keep myself on a budget, but perhaps there Is more I can do to make my budget stretch further and lighten my financial load.

    Thank you for the chance to win! =)

  55. R. Nicoletti August 6, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    Man, even just seeing stories about people who have gotten rid of that much debt in such a short time (without even reading the full story) is enough to give a girl hope. With $90k in student debt and more on the way after trying to do it all on my own to become a doctor… I need stories like that! Reminds you maybe it CAN actually be worth it!

  56. Becky August 6, 2013 at 2:00 PM

    I would love to win this book because I love listening to Clark on the radio. If I win I can save the $$ I would have spent driving to the Library to get it to read for free… :)

  57. Lisa E. @ Lisa Vs. The Loans August 6, 2013 at 2:29 PM

    I want this book because I love free books and I’m always looking to expand my financial literacy!

  58. Shane T August 6, 2013 at 2:31 PM

    I want to win this book so I can get more advice and information to help me deal with my finances.

  59. Whitney August 6, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    I want this book because I want to learn new ways to make productive long-term decisions about my finances, especially as a graduate student with student loans and dreams of owning a home, starting a family, and creating generational wealth.

  60. Brian August 6, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    My wife and I have been married almost a year and we can use some financial counseling. She has debt from student loans and her car and I have a reasonably low mortgage on our house, however, we plan on refinancing to remodel and make our modest home space (800sq. ft.) larger. We’ll have to pull off some basic financial gymnastics to help make this happen. Nevertheless, we could use the help in starting our lives and future family together.

  61. Tina Eiser August 6, 2013 at 2:59 PM

    I would love to win this book because I am always looking for ways to save money, get out of debt and could use some good financial advice! Sounds like it will be a great book!

  62. Andrew Elizondo August 6, 2013 at 3:18 PM

    I want this book to to get a fresh perspective on how to dig my family out of debt. One person’s idea doesn’t work for everybody and I need to gobble up all the perspectives I can!

  63. Holly S August 6, 2013 at 3:53 PM

    I would like a copy of this book because I’m a single mom always looking for a way to make the dollars stretch and the ends meet each month. He usually has some good advice!

  64. Dee coy August 6, 2013 at 3:58 PM

    I love to read money books and this sounds like a great one to read. In my mid 50’s and husband looking to retire in the next 18 months. Would like to see if I can learn something new.

  65. C August 6, 2013 at 5:21 PM

    I would like to learn more about frugal living. Thanks!

  66. Jennifer August 6, 2013 at 5:27 PM

    I listen to Clark all the time and would love to review his new book!

  67. One Frugal Girl August 6, 2013 at 5:31 PM

    I keep a stash of books nearby at all times, even though with an almost 2 year old around I rarely get to read them. I like fiction, non-fiction, finance you name it and this one sounds interesting.

  68. Kelli August 6, 2013 at 5:35 PM

    I would love to win this book because I’m having a hard time staying motivated to pay off my credit card debt. Especially when it comes to “living large” – things like dining out, treating myself to even small luxuries – this is where I often falter because I feel “deprived”. This might help me stay the course and enjoy things a bit more while still getting to a better financial place!

  69. Robynn August 6, 2013 at 7:44 PM

    I need this book to read on the plane! Seriously though, my husband and I are moving to Honduras as one of our long term financial decisions, and any advice that might help our journey to debt freedom and general awesomeness would be greatly appreciated.

    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 9:04 PM

      Wow – that’s quite a money saving tactic! Moving to a new country! :)

  70. Kate August 6, 2013 at 8:08 PM

    I’d like the book because it’s always good to see another perspective on finances.

  71. Brian August 6, 2013 at 8:13 PM

    I would love the book because my wife and I are expecting, and it is twins. Money is going to be tight and I need all the help I can get :-)

    Starting a new blog and I am slowly going to start blogging about our adventures, but it is brand spanking new with no content. I just wanted to add the link for future love.

    Thanks for the contest,


    1. J. Money August 6, 2013 at 9:03 PM

      Haha… no shame in that, brotha – welcome aboard the blogging train :)

  72. Emily Smith August 6, 2013 at 10:02 PM

    Hey there!

    I’d LOVE this book for a couple of reasons. First, I’m very passionate and interested by finances in general- especially ridding of debt and/or learning the psychology behind spending and what money means (money=what you value). Second, who doesn’t love free stuff, LOL and third, I’d read it and then be able to hand it down to my daddy-o, who is a financial planner and *thee* most awesome man I’ve ever met who has taught me so much wisdom regarding money.

  73. Emily Smith August 6, 2013 at 10:04 PM

    I’d love this book for two reasons: 1. Because I’m passionate about money, specifically eliminating debt and/or finance education and 2. I could read this book and then pass it down to my daddy-o, who is *thee* most awesome man I have ever met who happens to be a financial planner and taught me so much wisdom around money from an early age!

  74. Kandace August 6, 2013 at 11:33 PM

    I want this book because I respect Clark and his advice is solid, and he’s also just geeky enough to be cute. Also, we’re at a crossroads financially and this is where we step it up and make a real difference in our lives or just keep on keeping on and wake up 10 years from now not having made any substantial progress or change toward building real wealth.

  75. Dan Byrd August 6, 2013 at 11:55 PM

    J – we’ve talked on and off for the past few months. I run a non-profit program for kids in SERIOUS trouble and try to divert them from liffe in prison. I make enough to live fairly comfortably, but have to ‘hustle’ to get some things I want. I’m ALWAYS looking for ‘hustles’ and ways to get over – I mean save a few extra dollers. I LIKE Clark and he has a few good thoughts…. not as many as I’ve gotten from you, but a few.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me win this. :)

  76. david August 7, 2013 at 12:02 AM

    i have 10 and 11 year old daughters, and they will read this book. if they give me a satisfactory book report, they get 5 bucks

  77. Debra K August 7, 2013 at 1:16 AM

    I’d like this book because I think it’d be pretty on the shelf next to my other billion to-be-read books. :P But in all seriousness, my husband lost his job and we’re trying to figure out the best ways to get by until he gets a new job. We are doing everything we can think of, but we want to make sure we survive this and learn as much as we can from it. We’d like to maybe have child #2 someday, too… With all the financial stress, I can’t even imagine that. So maybe it’d help my sex life, in a roundabout way. Ha!

  78. Lizzette Thomas August 7, 2013 at 2:47 AM

    I need this book because I’m about to give birth to our 3rd daughter. We’re going to need major savings for the future!!! Hope I win!

  79. ashley August 7, 2013 at 3:02 AM

    I need to figure out how to live without being able to work because i’m currently disabled.

  80. jay August 7, 2013 at 9:13 AM

    I want to win so I can get my credit score up, and refinance!

  81. Nic August 7, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    I’d like to win this book to see what kinds of insights Clark has that I haven’t heard of yet. The few times I read, I typically read finance books and currently I don’t have any that haven’t been read, so this would give me one!

  82. Chris August 7, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    I would like this book because we would like to have some type of residual income and do not know much about it and perhaps can learn more from this book, also preparing for retirement. We are debt free.

  83. Jen August 7, 2013 at 12:02 PM

    I could use some motivation!

  84. Chelsea August 7, 2013 at 1:39 PM

    I have heard a lot of good things about Clark Howard and would love to dive into his new book! Thanks J. for the giveaway!

  85. Carla Onate August 7, 2013 at 1:50 PM

    I want to obtain the book because I have recently started investing. Until a couple of weeks ago, I did not have an online savings account, a Roth IRA, traditional IRA or opened a 401K account with my employer. I follow your blog everyday and have learned a lot of things. In addition, I am helping my family with their finances since my dad and mom filed for bankruptcy and have been struggling to pay their bills every month.
    I am 26 years old and have been able to have a debt free life up until now thanks to your blog (no loans, no credit card debt, and my corolla is paid off). I even got the book (from my public library of course) you recommended “I will teach you to be rich” and has helped me assist my family members with their finances since they are getting closer to retirement. I am currently trying to learn more ways to improve our finances because it’s never too late to learn new things when it comes to money.
