Second Chance Showdown: You Can Still Win!

Hey there everyone. Just a reminder about the Second Chance Showdown that is now part of the Million Dollar Portfolio Contest. This is your chance to win a prize if you don't qualify for the finals of the portfolio contest. You must have been registered for the contest by 9:30 AM EST this morning to take part in Second Chance. AND you must opt-in by May 14th to be a part of "SC."

This is not a new registration,but an opt-in. You opt-in when you go to the contest home page and an opt-in page appears. Or you can opt-in on the contest home page itself, where it says opt-in. That's a link to the opt-in page. Wow--that's a lot of opt-ins to write about, but there you have it.

Now, until May 14th, everyone is still competing for the finals of the Million Dollar Portfolio. The finalists will include the 10 weekly winners and the 10 top portfolio values until May 14th, for a total of 20 finalists. The two week finals begin on the 14th. Until then, you are still getting Bonus Bucks for the trivia questions and only the non-finalists are eligible for Second Chance.

Some important facts for the Second Chance Showdown:
Each person can only play one portfolio in the final two weeks of trading.
There are no Bonus Bucks in the final two weeks of trading.
Both the Finals and the Second Chance Showdown end at 4:00 pm ET on May 25th.

The winner of Second Chance Showdown will get the grand prize of a Sony Home Theatre System that includes a 46 inch HDTV, a 5-disc DVD.CD changer and a 5.1 channel surround sound. Good luck.
