On Saturday, there will be contests on both BCQualify.com and NHCQualify.com. The more unique of the two is the BCQualify event – it’s a credit builder. Entries cost only $25 with a limit of two per customer. The pool is guaranteed to be at least $2,500 in total with $1,000 going to the winner, but the pool total could grow to as much as $10,000 depending on participation.
