Sooo, we’re in a recession and every last rand has to be stretched really far in order to make it through the month. Petrol is almost R17/L (cry with me).

The good people at Cadbury can see our struggle and they’d like to bless us, literally. The chocolate makers are giving away R10 000 every day for 60 days in their newest campaign, #CashInOnYourCravings. Basically, you have 60 chances to win all that cash and all you have to do is buy and eat some chocolate, which you’re probably already doing.

In the spirit of dreaming about spending money that we don’t have, we thought up 5 ways we’d like to blow all that moola – bless your chocolate socks, Cadbury!

1. Catching Flights, Not Feelings

December is creeping up on us which calls for a sunny vacay; Cape Town? Maybe Durban. R10 000 will go a long way in securing luxurious accommodation, travel and Summer activities.

2. You Can Never Have Too Many Clothes

New season, new wardrobe! Spring is here and calling for the shopping haul of our lives. R10K gets us at least 5 good outfits in this economy, right?

3. We Are Material Girls

The new iPhone X, SONY G7 Camera or a new laptop? Often lack of funds keeps us from getting the stuff that we really, really want. With an extra R10 000 from our blesser, Cadbury, we can level up on all the latest gadgets.

4. The Adulting Options

Okay, okay – we don’t have to blow this money fast. We can be super responsible and consider saving it in a 32-day account, putting some toward an Easy Equities account or really taking a risk and buying some bitcoin.

5. Giving is Receiving

Doing something charitable can leave you feeling so good. Unfortunately, our country is still extremely unequal when it comes to resources and opportunities and many people live below the poverty line. Do some good by sponsoring high schoolers with pads and toiletries, buy a homeless person a warm outfit, blanket and some food.

Now that you have some ideas, take your crack at winning R10 000 over 60 days by buying one of these chocolate bars (Lunch Bar (48g), Lunch Bar Dream (48g), P.S. Milk Chocolate (48g), P.S. Caramilk (48g), 5Star (48.5g), Crunchie (40g), Lunch Bar mini (23g) and P.S. Caramilk mini (24g/19g), find the unique code inside the wrapper and dial the USSD code *120*101112#, follow the prompts. And then, wait for Cadbury to call you and tell you, you’ve won.

You have until 31 October to enter. What better excuse to satisfy your chocolate craving every day?
