Become a Lending Club investor and win $2,500

Peer to Peer lending isn't just a good way to get a loan for consolidating your debt or launching a small business, it's also a great way to invest.

LendingClub.com, one of the best known p2p lenders, is celebrating its growth and the popularity of peer-to-peer lending by giving away $2,500 to its 25,000th investor. Given the $25 minimum investment at Lending Club, that means you could instantly earn 100 times your investment in addition to the average return of 9.64% for loans made through Lending Club.

The contest runs through September, or until the 25,000th Investor joins Lending Club, and is open to all residents of the United States. Even though the contest is celebrating the 25,000th investor, you don't actually have to invest in a loan to enter. If you want to wait until you find the right individual to lend to, you are still eligible to win if you complete the sign up process.
