(BUSINESS WIRE)--Charles Schwab:

WHAT:

They say confession is good for the soul and at this special event, it may also be good for your wallet. This week, Charles Schwab will give New Yorkers a chance to share their stories of questionable spending decisions and provide an opportunity to win $10,000 in a Schwab brokerage account. Schwab’s mobile video booth, a glass truck outfitted to record contest submissions from passersby, will be making stops at four Manhattan locations on June 13 and 14.

The contest is being held in conjunction with the launch of Charles Schwab’s latest online video series, “Oh, Chuck! I Blew My Cash,” which features Chuck himself providing advice to six people who each confess to a regrettable (and humorous) purchase. The contest and video series highlight something everyone can relate to: spending too much on an impulse buy, rather than saving and investing for the future.

The contest is running between now and June 26, 2012 on Schwab’s Facebook page. The videos are also posted on Schwab’s YouTube page. You can join in the conversation on Twitter by following @CharlesSchwab and using the hashtag #OhChuck. To enter, find complete contest details and official rules, and for tips on smart spending and saving please visit www.ohchuckiblewmycash.com.

Spokespeople from Charles Schwab are also available upon request.
