Dear John Chow,

I challenge you to a battle at the Marketleverage cashinator in Las Vegas.

Here is my challenge. We both take turns in the cashinator and get as much money as we can. The person who gets the least money has to forfeit their earnings to the winner plus 100$ of their own money to the winner to give away on the winners blog!

So for instance if I get 70$ and you only get 30$ then you give me your 30 plus 100 of your own to give away to a ShoeMoney reader.

Do you accept this challenge Mr Chow?

Btw for those who have not seen the Marketleverage cashinator here is John Chow doing it:

  1. Awesome challenge! This will be very interesting. I hope we get to see video of this challenge.

    1. Yeah well, when you find someone with a large blog as yours – you might as well boost your readership and do cross promotions πŸ˜‰

  2. Great contest!

    However, I may be mistaken, but doesn’t the blog post say “The person who gets the most money has to forfeit their earnings to the winner..” If you get the most money are you the actual winner? But in your example you had Chow as the lower with $30 and he thus had to give you $130 total to give away.

    You could also just give the “prize money” away to the winner’s fav. charity too. I’m not complaining; just trying to clarify things for me. πŸ™‚

  3. It’s on!

    Way to throw down, Shoe, but maybe Market Leverage should step up and put some bigger bills in the Cashinator. They could get some good attention by promoting this showdown over the next month.

  4. Those machines are awesome πŸ™‚ The county fair always had one when I was growing up.
    Hopefully he accepts your challenge – I’m sure the ensuing video footage would be hilarious!

    1. I hope so too, it’ll definitely be an epic competition. A challenge to end all challenges.

  5. this would be awesome because all of your readers would be willing to receive some free cash for being a reader.

    1. If nothing else, haul out a few plush pandas while John’s in the booth – his focus would change from money to panda-hatred and it would be easy pickings from there!

  6. This is such a great idea! You must take a video with your Flip Mino. I’m sure it will be an awesome challenge, and I can’t wait to find out the results!

  7. Good idea to stir up more competition. This should be a fun contest to watch once the video is done.

  8. this is the coolest challenge I’ve seen in the last weeks. Shoemoney vs JohnChow in the Cashinator πŸ˜€

  9. Psssst! the secret is to grab all the cash off the ceiling and shove it down your pants. seriously.

    1. You can hear the Market Leverage lady explain in the video that you can pick up money off the floor and you can’t pull it down from off the ceiling.

    2. Apparently you were the catalyst for them changing their rules πŸ™‚ They couldn’t afford to have you come back!

  10. A nice idea! Looks fun Shoe. πŸ™‚ I think you can open up the bottom of you shirt a bit so all the cash flows in there and when the money is falling at the end, hold onto what’s inside and make another “spoon” with your shirt to grab t he rest. Oh yeah, if you use this trick and manage to get nearly all of them, don’t forget to mention who you heard the tip from. πŸ˜›

  11. ha! Awesome, I think Mr. Chow will accept this challenge. I must attend a conference soon!

  13. Hey Shoe…If JC doesnt accept…I’ll take you on for the same stakes buddy.

    I think I can take ya!


  14. Did you miss a zero? Didn’t you mean $1,000? πŸ™‚
    Actually this looks like fun. be sure to let us know what time so we can witness the event. My videocam will be ready!

  15. It will be great to see the outcome of this challenge. Hmmm… I thought John Chow would have responded by now.<> Where are you???

  16. I’ve never tried the Cashinator before so if you can’t pick it up off the floor or ceiling, I think the best bet would be when it’s over and the money falls down, to lift your shirt up like a blanket and wait for the money to drop. Did you see how much it fell down?

  18. Hello,
    I must admit that writing good posts is a big deal because when I started my blog I posted every day for 4 months and was getting great traffic about 200 per day and then I had to stop for work reasons and it just dropped off to 10 visits a day.

    So I think content is king.
