The time has finally come for us to help you get your hands on some extra cold, hard cash. We're not talking about under-the-table money from government kickbacks or shady lobbyists, we're talking about your chance at winning $1,000 twice a day for doing, well, very little. And don't worry: If your place is bugged, we promise nobody can pin anything illegal on you.

How do you get in on the easy money, you ask?

All you have to do is listen to News Talk KIT and wait for "The Sweep" contest. We'll give out a code word twice a day every weekday between April 3 and April 21 for a chance to win $1,000 each time. You just take that code and put it into our contest on the website and you'll be entered for a chance to win $1,000.

We can't wait to help you get some extra cash in your pocket to fund all those spring cleaning chores you have to do. (Let's be honest, you should definitely spend the money on a vacation, or buy something fun to use outside now that the weather is finally nice. But, if you really need to paint the outside of your house, we're happy to help you fund that too.)

Don't forget to listen for the code words that will be announced twice a day. The winning starts April 3!

All regular station contest rules apply.
