  • B101 Challenges!

    Welcome to B101 Challenges! If you're new to the site, you're probably still trying to get the hang of all the different sections and fully digest what the site has to offer- the B101 Challenges are questions that are posed for prizes. Occasionally a question will be shared in the forums and any member that replies to that particular challenge thread (on topic!) and answers the question will be automatically. . .
    entered into a drawing for whatever the prize happens to be that day.

    Challenges don't follow any set pattern, they may be issued at any time, in any forum and cover any topic. They might last 1 hour or 24 hours. They are announced to All members at the top of the screen. Here's an example of what an announcement looks like:




    Please note, only registered members are eligible to play, although Guests can comment on posts, those posts are ineligible to win.


    Some recent prizes include Keurig Coffee maker systems, Amazon Gift Cards, Walmart Gift Cards, etc. The gifts vary and are generally announced in the challenge itself.

    B101 Beat the Clock Challenge


    The Budget101 Beat the clock challenge can be a Surprise Challenge or a Planned (Notified) challenge. It will appear in the notices bar, like the other challenges, and will have a specific time to complete.

    What do you have to do?

    Sometimes you don't have to do anything except be logged in to your free budget101 user account to be eligible to win. If you're chosen you must respond within a given time period, (it will be listed in the Challenge notice). Other times you may have to locate a recipe on the site, or respond to a thread within a specific period of time, etc.

    The Beat the Clock Challenge is Always Based on TIME. All of our Beat the Clock challenges are posted in Eastern Standard Time (EST).

    Examples of Beat the Clock Challenges:

    • 8/7 Be Logged into your Account between the hours of 8-9pm EST: Winner: Tashdan Prize: Ninja Blender
    • 8/9 Crafters Challenge- what would you do if you had a Laminating machine? Winner: RosesBistro1234 Prize: Laminating Machine & Pouches



    How can I find the Current Challenges that are open so I can Play?


    Challenges are frequently posted as announcements at the top of the page and have a green "dismiss" button if you'd like to hide the announcement from view. If you'd like to see all the current Open challenges (or view Past challenges) we now have a forum dedicated to their announcement. That forum is located Here. In this forum you will be able to see what challenges are still accepting answers as well as where to find the location of the posted winner for each challenge.

    How Can I view Past Challenges?

    Visit the B101 Challenges forum, In this forum you will be able to see what challenges are still accepting answers as well as where to find the location of the posted winner for each challenge that has already ended. View the B101 Challenge Forum Now.


    How are the Winners Chosen?

    Each member that replies to the thread (& stays In Topic!) receives an automatic entry. Winners are drawn at Random from all eligible entries. There's no limit to the number of challenges a person can win. If you enter every challenge you could potentially win every challenge.

    View the actual process of choosing the winner here

    **Please note, when we first began our challenges, the winners were announced in the Notices (which display at the top of each page for a limited time) and were not added to threads.

    We have since added the feature of listing winners in the threads themselves so people can go back and see who won. If you're worried that you may have won and missed a notification, don't worry ALL winners receive a Private Message in their Inbox notifying them and requesting an address if necessary. In the event that the requested information is not provided within 2 business days, the giveaway item is forfeited and a new winner will be drawn and notified. We highly recommend that you update your address (which is a Private Field!) in your User Profile, (scroll towards the bottom and enter in the Name/Address field)



    Challenge Giveaway Official Rules

    • Only Registered Members are Eligible to Play
    • 2 Business days to respond to PM with Address or the Goodie Giveaway is forfeited (see paragraph above)
    • Challenges are open to US Members Only (due to shipping expenses) (Sorry, this site is a just a family blog, not a corporation, etc & we buy all the goodies ourselves, they are not donated or given by "sponsors". As such, it becomes a financial burden to ship to other countries with the exorbitant shipping costs.
    • Members may play in as many challenges a time as are available.

      Love this idea, and would also like this to be added to my wishlist, if that's what is necessary. It doesn't seem like that is necessary, since I got those notifications yesterday, even tho' I had not come to this through the wishlist forum. Well, whatever it takes here; I want in!!!! Thanks!
