Ever wonder why it’s called Black Friday? As it turns out, Black Friday is an accounting term. For those of us who don’t balance ledgers for work, numbers are written in black when it’s a positive as opposed to red for negative numbers. The significance of all of this is that Black Friday is all about insane doorbuster deals that make the company lose money, so how does the number still remain black at the end of the day?
Each Monday in March, we encouraged you to watch HGTV’s Love It or List It for a chance to win $50,000 in HGTV’s Mortgage Madness Watch & Win Sweepstakes presented by Quicken Loans.
We also promised to let you know the winners of the weekly cash prize – and we don’t want to keep you waiting another minute!
These four lucky winners will be using their newfound $50,000 to pay off their mortgage, make home improvements or find a new place to call home:
- Brian M. from Arizona
- Connie D. from Maine
- Maria P. from New York
- Roberta M. from California
Congratulations to the winners and a big thanks to everyone who participated in Mortgage Madness, we hope you enjoyed playing along!
