NBC's “Today” show is working on a special series called "Today's Cheapskate Week." We're devoting 5 days to finding the biggest bargains in the U.S. We're going to cover fashion, home, groceries, coupons and more.  In addition, we're searching for America's biggest cheapskates with the thriftiest tips and we want you! So if you or someone you know is great at pinching pennies we want you to tell us about it. We also want to see your best money-saving tips.

Here's how to apply to participate in our series:

Set-up your video camera to face you, or have someone hold it, look at the camera and tell us why you're the biggest cheapskate in the U.S. Then show us some of your best tightwad tips. This should be something visual.

Or if your spouse, friend, relative or co-worker is America's biggest penny-pincher – we want that too! You must include that other person in your tape and show us why they are the cheapest person you know. It's good to keep your stories concise – aim for 2 minutes or less!

Since home video tapes can have technical problems, we suggest recording the same material several times. So do a few takes.

Any video format is fine, but we like to avoid Hi-8. That particular format is often troublesome for our editing machines.

When finished — please send your tape to:

Margaret Pergler
Today Show - Producer
30 Rockefeller Center
Room 568E-2
New York, NY 10112

ALL TAPES MUST BE RECEIVED BY WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2005.

Your tape MAY air somewhere between Aug 15th and Aug 19th, 2005. (Due to tight deadlines and constant show changes, we will not be able to notify you in advance. So get those VCR’s or DVD recorders ready!)

Please note: Your videos and any of their content may be edited and used by NBC in all media WILL NOT be returned. Any materials you send in conjunction with this project become property of NBC.
