A deal on Uber rides, free eclipse gear and Disney’s uncoupling from Netflix THEPENNYHOARDER.COM MONDAY, AUGUST 14, 2017 As you settle in for the “Bachelor in Paradise” premiere tonight, we want to let you know the folks in Ocean City, New Jersey, are celebrating their annual Weird Contest Week. Coincidence? If you want to ride the wave of kismet, we’ve got some tips to help you earn money by entering unusual contests around you. First, this news… Wouldn’t You Think My Collection’s Complete? Disney on Netflix was a dream — a wish our hearts made when we were fast asleep. But it’s time to let it go. A new Disney-branded streaming service is coming to take us on a magic carpet ride in 2019, and it’s pulling its titles from Netflix. Hurry and get your movie nights in before it all turns into a pumpkin. This One’s on Me While you pack end-of-summer fun into the next two weeks, watch your spending. All the little “one more drink” and “We’ll just call an Uber” concessions will add up fast. But — you guessed it — we found a way to save. Here’s how you can earn up to $17 cash back on Uber rides before Aug. 31 . Had Enough “Total Eclipse of the Heart” Puns Yet? Have you — like the rest of the country — marked your calendar for the solar eclipse on Aug. 21? Wherever you are in North America, you’ll get to witness at least a partial disappearance of the sun behind our moon. The show, you might realize, will involve staring directly at the sun — this is ill-advised. Here’s how to protect your eyes for free . Chasing Cheese and Growing Pumpkins Think you’ve got a knack for conquering the competition? Here are some unusual contests that could garner big bucks: Pumpkin growing . The bigger the better, so make room. You can also enter pumpkin-carving comps, if you’ve got a creative Jack-o-lantern up your sleeve. Ugliest dog . It may sound rude, but don’t worry, your pup won’t know where the money comes from. They’ll just enjoy the extra treats. Ugliest face. Don’t worry — this one’s not about your natural attributes. (You’d lose, obvs.) It’s about your ability to contort your face in a goofy way. Wife carrying. These husband-and-wife team races pop up at festivals and fairs around the country. Prizes vary, but the North American Wife Carrying Championship in Maine earns the man’s weight in beer and five times the woman’s weight (pound-for-dollar) in cash. Cheese rolling . This is basically just a downhill race… where everyone’s chasing a wheel of cheese. Winner gets the cheese (and sometimes cash). How hungry are you? Fantasy fishing. Football fans get to play without leaving home — why not outdoorsmen? Don’t miss our list of contests to avoid — like, um, shin kicking? Goodness. Word of the Day Credit report dispute (n): The official way to say “That ain’t right” when you see a mistake on your credit report. Think: A ding for late payments when you know you paid on time. They’re free to file and should be cleared up in about 30 days. Your credit report can have a major impact on all parts of your life — buying a house, signing a lease, renting an apartment, maybe even getting a job. So you better make sure it’s correct. Here’s how to view your report for free and what to do if you find a mistake . Until tomorrow! P.S. Are you intimidated just thinking about poring through your credit report?
