$100.00 from Serve

Back in September, I let all my readers know that I was evaluating the new Serve service and card  from American Express.   I don’t know how many of you have heard about Serve  from American Express, but this is a service where you can send money to relatives,  friends or vendors to buy things. Serve allows members to send and receive money quickly and make purchases online, offline and via mobile. Serve is accepted everywhere American Express is (in the United States), with 24/7 customer service and no fees.  I have used my Serve card to buy a few trinkets at the local mall, and it worked the same way that my usual American Express Card does.  But beyond using your card at a brick & mortar store you can also use Serve to send or transfer money to friends, family or other bank accounts.  It gives you extra control over your finances.  Now, it’s your turn to have a chance to try out Serve.

Serve is partnering with 10 online Facebook influencers from a range of different niches (fashion, music, food, etc.) to curate fun top 10 lists with the help of their Facebook friends and online communities.   I’m proud to be the lucky Social Media influencer in the area of Fashion. With cooler fall weather here, it’s a great time for us to think abut fashion fashions that help us look fab!    That’s why I’m reaching out to all my Facebook friends, Blog  readers, Twitter followers and Pinterest friends and asking them to contribute to my list of Top 10 Fall Fashion Picks or Trends. I want to hear what each of you think it a chic piece for fall to dress up your wardrobe.  Here’s what you need to do:
1)   Visit

2) Add your suggestions to the Fall Fashion top 10 list (lower left of the page, or click here)   for a chance to get 10,000 pennies ($100) for your thoughts.  Feel free to contribute to other lists on food and music, but I’ll be looking at the Fashion lists to pick 10 different winners. I will be looking at all of these picks with an eye toward rewarding those who participate with a $100.00 US via Serve.  You can do a lot of fashion shopping with a cool $100.00 bucks!
