A Rockefeller Will Pay Your Entire College Tuition If You Win His (Easy) Contest

When this tip was first sent into me, I thought it was just another dude trying to get us to promote his friend’s app for free. When I looked into it more, I discovered that I was correct — it was a dude trying to get us to promote his friend’s app for free, which I’m currently doing. But the reason I didn’t just toss this tip by the wayside along with all the emails I get from Chinese vape manufacturers after some reader signed me up for their email lists? Because one of you who decided to click on this article could walk away from college with zero student loan debt.

The Rockefeller heir who owns the event-based social networking app “Promo” is putting on a contest, and one lucky winner will have 100% of their college tuition paid for. The maximum potential value of this prize? $250,000.


And what kind of person would I be if I didn’t let y’all know about that?

Here’s the creator of Promo and Rockefeller himself, George Dorr O’Neill III, to tell you about the contest.

You can go to Promo’s website to get all the exact details, rules, and restrictions, but the gist of it is this, straight from O’Neill’s mouth: “… the individual who creates the Promo event with the most people attending will receive 100% of their college tuition and prior student loan debt paid for.”

Creating an event through the app only takes about a minute, too, as this video shows.

Now here’s where you, as a fraternity member, are at a clear advantage — you know a shit ton of people, and host a shit ton of events. Just make an event on Promo for your next party/philanthropy event/etc., invite your fraternity brothers and all guests via the app, make it so they have to click attending on the app to get in and enjoy your delicious and free Natural Light/basketball tournament/etc., and boom — your college tuition is paid for as long as nobody else holds a larger event. O’Neill gets more users due to this promo (zing!) like he wants, and you get your college tuition paid for by the Rockefeller family. It’s a win-win.

And I can’t stress this enough: Promo didn’t compensate us for posting this. I’m just a dude who saw an easy opportunity for one of you to get free tuition and decided to present it to you. I’m the hero here; not the villain. LOVE ME!!!

What the fuck are you waiting for?
